Welcome to Yoga-dendrum

charlie-kirkMy 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.


There are no classes from Monday 17 June through to Thursday 20th.  Classes resume from Friday 21st June. 

Full price classes is $17. Concession price is $12.  

Chair classes and all Zoom classes will be $12 for everyone.

We follow current NSW Health guidelines.  However, please do not attend if you are unwell.

There is 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.

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. 

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.
