All Yoga Moves West classes are designed to be inclusive with 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.
Classes generally 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.

Saturdays at 10.30am
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.

Yoga Moves West is thrilled to now be offering LV Chair Yoga. Practicing with a chair means everybody can reap the benefits that yoga has to offer regardless of age, experience and ability. Taught with a wide range of variations and modifications, students can adapt the poses to suit their own personal needs. All postures are performed seated so students are fully supported throughout class removing any fear of falling.
This practice is truly inclusive and accessible to all.
Any body, any chair, anywhere!
Tailored Yoga Programs
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.
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. 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 taught in various locations throughout Melbourne before crossing the bridge and moving to the thriving western suburbs with her family. 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 loves teaching the Vinyasa Flow and Meditation classes at YMW and is thrilled to be able to offer private and semi private Chair Yoga classes.
Catherine believes everyone, no matter their age, experience and ability, can boost health and wellbeing from a regular yoga practice.
