All Yoga Moves West classes are designed to be inclusive, absolute beginners and experienced yoga lovers all welcome. Variations are tailored to suit the needs of different bodies and skill sets. No matter your age, fitness or flexibility, our classes allow you to work at your own pace with the availability of bolsters, blocks and straps for a supportive and safe practice.
Vinyasa Flow classes will start with a breathing practice that then moves into a series of yoga poses that synchronises breath and movement, and we always finish with a nourishing relaxation and mini-meditation. [ongoing class]
The Kids Yoga class designed for primary school students will help lay the foundations for healthy bodies, minds and spirits. We do this by moving through physical postures developing body awareness, breathing exercises aimed to help steady emotions and relaxations to calm the mind - we'll also throw in some fun partner work and yoga games. [term bookings only]
Time slows right down in our yin class. We use props to support us while we hold poses for longer periods, allowing us to dissolve the stiffness in our connective tissue and give our minds space to just be. [ongoing class]
A private yoga class allows you to ask all the questions you need to ask but often don't get a chance to. If you are confused about alignment or you want to learn to mediate but don't know where to begin or just want to relax and don't know how, a private class may be just what you're looking for.

Yoga To You
We can bring "Yoga to You", wherever that may be ...
We can also tailor one-off programs for your special event (for example we have delivered class to a group of ladies to start off their Hen's Day, and worked with The Scouts and various sporting clubs). We love working alongside you to help fulfill your vision.
Yoga at School
Yoga Moves West now offers a range of specialised incursion programs bringing all the wonderful benefits of yoga directly to the classroom. We are able to work with your school to design a program that builds on current curriculum or around specific themes and we are able to offer a one-off class or a series of classes.
If you are a kindergarten, primary school or secondary school and would like to know more, please get in touch and lets chat about how yoga can work for your school.
And teachers, we haven't forgotten you - we can also bring yoga to your workplace.
Yoga at Work
Yoga at work can help lower stress levels, improve productivity and boost morale. All we need is a little room (generally a boardroom with the tables and chairs pushed aside) and a little time (usually a lunchtime) and the yoga can do the rest.
Please get in touch with further questions and details.
Yoga for Beginners
Four Week Course
The Yoga for Beginners course has been designed as a four part workshop to introduce participants to the fundamentals of a well rounded yoga practice.
The course is suitable for the complete beginner, or for those wanting come back to the practice after a hiatus, or for those wanting to deepen their practice by going back-to-basics with a "beginner mind".
The progressive course will cover key physical postures focusing on safe alignment, basic breathing practices and will also touch on a couple of philosophical concepts. Variations and modifications will be taught to suit the needs of different bodies and abilities, laying the foundations for a continuing yoga practice.
Dates for 2020 to be confirmed...

About Yoga Moves West
Yoga Moves West is a local Werribee yoga school aimed at making yoga accessible to everyone who wishes to participate by offering affordable, specially designed yoga classes for adults, teenagers and children.
We are a small team of dedicated teachers who aspire to create a safe, nurturing space where students can be challenged, nourished, energised and relaxed - physically, mentally and spiritually.
Catherine's yoga journey began at university, as a physical practice to compliment her dance training. She discovered the classes energised her from within and she felt positive ripples throughout her life. Her wish to explore the practice more deeply led her to undertake her initial teacher training graduating in 2009. Catherine opened Yoga Moves West in 2015 with a desire to share the many benefits she has experienced through yoga to her local community. Catherine believes everyone, no matter their age, can boost health and wellbeing from a regular yoga practice.
Samantha's passion for learning has taken her down some wonderful paths. Suffering from anxiety for most of her life and working out how to deal with it was difficult, but she found that moving her body helped immensely citing karate and rock climbing as early influences. She has enjoyed walking down many career paths working with artists and designers, and many years as a florist and chef. Since discovering yoga 10 years ago, Samantha feels she has found her true passion as a teacher whose purpose is to guide students to develop and grow, in their practice, and in their lives.
Aimee's interest in yoga, art and body therapies led her to undertake many complimentary teacher trainings allowing her to become a fully rounded teacher on and off the mat. Her credentials include Yin yoga, Reiki level 1 & 2, Art therapy, Nutrition and having an extensive background in varies roles working with children Aimee recently completed Kids yoga teacher training. Aimee believes in a holistic approach to wellbeing and is passionate about empowering others live a quality life full of love, joy and optimal health.
