Utopian® Yoga is a unique form of yoga
It has been developed by well-known Dunedin yoga teacher, Jane Gillespie, after a lifetime of learning and teaching and researching the connection between the mind and body.
It combines aspects of mindfulness, movement, breathing, balance, strengthening, focus and relaxation to facilitate reprogramming and realignment. Its edge is an efficient and achievable synthesis of these elements. As that synthesis evolves movement becomes increasingly graceful, attractive and connected and problems diminish.
By practicing Utopian Yoga you can expect a higher quality of life through improved mobility balance and strength. You will begin to move with more awareness, feel calmer and have improved motor coordination.
If Utopian Yoga sounds like something you would like to try, visit our Utopian Yoga page to learn more about it.
In addition to Utopian Yoga, we also host a fully equipped Pilates Studio and the Gentle Gym.
