I am passionate about making yoga and meditation accessible for every body and will meet the group where they are at. We can discuss the desired outcome for the group and I will develop a program/s using my experience as a facilitator.
I am available to travel around the Derby and Fitzroy Crossing areas. I bring with me all the equipment required, however if the sessions are regular I may ask that the workplace purchase their own equipment.
To date I have facilitated regular sessions for Derby Drug and Mental Health, Numbala Nunga Nursing Home, Derby District High School, Mowanjum Art and Cultural Centre as well as once off sessions for World Vision, Derby Community Health, Derby Aboriginal Health Service, Derby Woman's Shelter and Garl Garl Walbu Alcohol Association Aboriginal Corporation.
Here are some reasons why a group session can be of benefit:
It is now well known that the accumulative benefits of appropriate yoga and meditation sessions has profound positive impacts on the lives of individuals as well as creating healthy working and social environments.
"Among other things, yoga has been shown to help the body's inflammatory response (through toning the vagus nerve), as well as reverse heart disease and improve brain health. Yoga has also been shown to improve depression and anxiety, as well as support our general physical and mental health. But yoga's most important benefit may be in making us more resilient to stress, which is associated with so many conditions and is such a major issue in contemporary society"
- Jivana Heyman (Accessible Yoga Founder)
Prices are based on 1 hour sessions and include set up, pack down and preparation for the session/s. Prices may vary depending on the need level of the program developed. There is no additional travel cost for classes within Derby however travel time will be charged out for locations outside a 20km radius of Derby. Maximum of 10 people in a group at one time.
Sessions that are pre-scheduled weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Please chat to me if the above guide does not fit within your budget. It's my mission to make the tools of yoga and meditation accessible and I'm confident that we can agree on something that works for us both as I would rather your group have access to yoga then not at all.
I understand the sessions are a big investment and I want to make sure that you are happy with my service.
If you are not sure whether the sessions would be a good fit for your group or you have any further questions then let's chat first.
I look forward to hearing from you!
