About YFTH

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).

June 2016

As part of our Winter Solstice week and Gathering at the studio the tree has been adorned with autumnal leaves bearing intentions of letting go and also nourishing and growing.

Just as seeds in the earth are lying in wait, nourished by what has been let go of and becomes compost to feed the next pulsation of life in spring, so we can consciously engage in the process ourselves. Here is the tree, and here are our communities intentions. I have deliberately sorted them and included the multiples which shows so clearly that at the heart of the matter we are all seeking the very same. May YFTH support you on your journey as the light grows and the vital essences of prana, tejas and ojas flow ...
