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.
Wednesday chair classes now start earlier at 5.30pm.
Yoga in the Garden: Weekly Saturday morning classes (9.30-10.30) at Gross Street Reserve, George Street Tighes Hill – continuing throughout Springtime. Final class for 2020 this Saturday 28 November.
See Facebook link for more details. If weather causes cancellation, updated on site here and on the Facebook page.
Zoom class: Is now on Monday 12 till 1pm – please contact me if interested.
Class sizes at the hall are limited to 15, all classes have capacity and there is no need to book in advance. I will be teaching with a mask and encourage you to also consider this – although it’s not compulsory. 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.
