Vital health of body, vibrant mind, shining heart

Yoga from the Heart was founded by Clare in 2002 with a clear intention to offer the gifts of yoga to the Hobart community. From the beginnings in a small studio in Taroona we have grown and we now make our home in our wonderful dedicated space in Hobart, bathed in light, with a view of Mt Wellington, wonderful facilities, balconies, and infused with intention to offer practices which reveal joy, vitality, and intelligence of body, mind and heart.

The studio is well equipped with high quality, clean equipment for your use so you don’t need to bring anything to class with us (though if you have your own mat you are most welcome to bring it along to use). As well as regular weekly classes (including specialist classes for pregnant women, children, older adults, those with therapeutic needs) we offer regular workshops, the 6 month Elemental Yoga Immersion, and from time to time we host visiting teachers (see below for some of the events we have hosted in the last 10 years).

Supporting Yoga from the Heart at its foundation are the following underlying principles:
Every person is an expression of the great mystery of which we are all a part.
There is an optimal alignment and action in every yoga pose that when touched will transform us on all levels.
When we offer ourselves the gift of yoga, we are offering a gift to the world as the practice supports us in living from our hearts and expressing our potential in the world.

We post regularly on Facebook: To like us on Facebook click this link to be taken to our page.

I honour the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honour the place in you which is of love,
of truth, of light and of peace.
When you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
we are one.
