New trial membership offering - 1 month for $50!

Tofu for Dolphins Poster

We've had some feedback from students during our first fledgling months, and based on this feedback we are changing our trial membership offering! A number of students have told us they haven't felt the 10 days was enough time to experience a range of classes and to begin to develop a consistent yoga practise or "get back in the habit". Thus we are changing from $20 for a 10 day trial ($2 per day), to $50 for a 1 month trial (only $1.60 per day, and so many more of them!)

Goth yogis of the world, unite!

Got a bit of a surprise this evening when we discovered one of our literally just-posted posters in the window for next month's Goth Yoga class had gone viral. Expecting some extra visits as a result, so, bit of a recap for those just tuning in: Goth Yoga is a monthly class held every first Friday of the month, from 6pm to 7.15pm, in North Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

It's hip to be Square; + holiday schedule!

Hey TFD folks! Letting you know a couple things:

Firstly, as of today we are now running our studio card payments through Square, which just launched their physical payment system in Australia 2 weeks ago (that's the Square logo up there, if you haven't seen it before)! This system can currently only process credit and debit cards though so please make sure you bring cash to classes if you don't have either of these card types (or just book online!)

Irish Yoga tonight for St Patrick's Day! Gold coin entry if you come in green =)

Happy St Patrick's Day! At TFD we probably won't be practising QUITE like the attached image, but we would like to wish the very best of national celebrations to the character from which our studio name originated, Mr Bernard L Black. To add a bit of fun, if you come to any class today dressed in green, you'll only have to pay a GOLD COIN to attend! Our schedule for this evening is 4.30pm Gentle Yoga, 6pm Beginner's Course, and 7.15pm Yin Journey. (which will be Irish-themed!) To be sure, to be sure!

Linguistics and yoga: changing our lexicon to increase happiness

mudita - to experience joy in the good fortune of others

I caught up with a dear friend a little while ago, someone I'd known for many years, who had often been single, and constantly seemed to have poor luck with relationships. Finally, it seemed, he'd found someone who really clicked: and I met her for the first time for at dinner. They were adorably lovely-dovey together, and it made me so, so happy to see this friend finally find someone that seemed to be a good fit for them, after so many years of drama and trauma.

THREE new classes and TWO new teachers this week!

Such excitement! We have three new classes running for the first time this week, and two wonderful new teachers joining us.

Great first evening class for Kara; a special yin yoga tonight with Cass!

Kara had her first evening class last night and it was fantastic! Here she is leading the class in Warrior II pose, a great pose which increases strength while stimulating the abdominal organs. This pose is named for Virabhadrasana, a fierce warrior and incarnation of Shiva, said to possess a thousand heads, eyes, and feet, wearing a tiger's skin. I think she looks just a little bit like that, don't you? ;)

Meet Kara!

Hey there North Melbourne yoga-lovers! We have exciting news - this week the delightful Kara will be joining our studio as a teacher and we hope you'll make her really welcome! She studied yoga in Costa Rica and has travelled widely, and brings a warm and passionate presence to the studio. She'll be found regularly on Tuesdays 7-8am for Rising Sun Hatha, a great way to start the day, and then on Wednesdays for Hatha Yoga at 6-7pm, and Yin for Release from 7.15pm - 8.15pm. Kara's hatha classes begin this week and Yin from next week, all classes ongoing weekly.
