Utopian Yoga 

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.

Jane not only provides expertise from many years of experience and training, she creates a welcoming, supportive and safe environment in which she promotes personal and physical growth and healing.
After every session of Pilates with Jane Gillespie, I sleep deeply and wake totally refreshed, as if my body has been re-set. For the rest of the week I am much more alert and creative.
To me Jane Gillespie’s Utopia Yoga is a safe sanctuary; a place of fun and energy; of learning, balance, strength, fitness and flexibility; of peace and laughter. Sounds like Utopia? It is.
I found connection between my lower and upper body that wasn’t present prior; breathing and a sense of efficiency in movement which contradicted training techniques in the professional sporting industry. I now have a stronger understanding of, and feeling with, my body.
