Kate Fulton

With over 25 years of experience, I share a graceful Yoga Synergy based vinyasa flow, adapted from the three main Eastern styles - Iyengar, Ashtanga and Hot Yoga.

Yoga Synergy was developed by Sydney-based physiotherapist Simon Borg-Olivier and is specifically intended for Western bodies and lifestyles. You can personally adapt the style for your own fitness and flexibility.

Physically, this style of yoga releases modern day stress, particularly back and neck nervous, muscular and skeletal tension. It builds strength, core stability, balance and coordination, as well as flexibility.

The led flow is fluid and fun, yet meditative and calming - promoting positive mental health and well-being through activation of the contentment hormonal pathways.

Wellness Wednesdays at Yoga Jai Studio. Evening classes start at 7.15pm and run for 90 minutes.

This is a perfect time for those with busy work and home lives. It provides a mid-week reset - an opportunity to be more mindfully present, calm and grounded.

I welcome both beginners & seasoned yogis. The style is suitable for all ages, levels of experience, and flexibility. Please let me know of any injuries or health concerns prior to the class beginning.

$15 casual waged, $60 for a pass of 5 classes and $100 for a pass of 10 classes.
*Student and CSC holder discounts available.
**Please talk to me if finances are a barrier.

Come along, feel good and have some fun!
