My name is Charlie Kirk and I teach yoga classes in the Star Hall, Valencia Street, Mayfield in Newcastle.
Each class will provide you with tools and information to develop and add to your own unique yoga practice. The classes are designed to work with both beginners and experienced students – and there are now separate chair yoga classes for people with challenges that make conventional classes difficult.
Yoga-dendrum takes its name from one of my favourite flowering plants – the Epidendrum (Crucifix) Orchid. Give these plants just a little bit of regular attention and watch them grow and develop into beautiful plants – which is much the same as our yoga practice.
ZOOM Classes: Chair yoga every Monday 4.30-5.30pm and Friday 9-10am – plus a mat class every Tuesday 12.15-1.20 pm every week commencing from 20 July. Contact me for more details.
MASKS ARE COMPULSORY FROM NOW UP TILL 9 JULY 2021 IN EVERY CLASS. (I have spare masks available if you forget).
With the reduced capacity (back to 4 square metres) we still have capacity in all classes. However if you are new to Yoga-dendrum or returning after a longer break, please contact me prior to attending the Tuesday and Friday morning classes. All other classes have capacity to take new starters.
All classes have capacity and there is no need to book in advance. Yoga-dendrum is registered as a COVID-safe business.
You will need to bring your own mat to class. BYO blanket for the yoga nidra would be a good idea. There will be no need for any props in the classes, however if you previously used cushions for support, you will have to bring your own.
Wednesday evening chair class will be taught by Karen. All other classes by me.
Payment can be by cash or EFT direct deposit if you’d prefer to avoid handling money.
Please contact me if you’ve any questions.
The following practices are now available on YouTube. You can also find them using the Video tab on this site.
Guided meditation / pranayama: Natural Breath Awareness; Rhythmic Yogic Breath; Yoga Nidra (20 min)
Chair yoga sequences: Spinal Movement sequence; Preparing for seated Salute to the Sun; Standing sequence. Note these chair sequences work well if you’re used to more traditional classes – feel free to try them out!
My original 20 minute yoga nidra meditation is still here (click the link) if you needed a bit of quiet / recharge time.
