From our last beginners yoga course

" The course was really well constructed and the pace was wonderful. Despite being a little worried about first walking in the studio was warm and welcoming and I felt instantly at ease.
This course was a great way to feel comfortable starting out in my yoga practice. I loved the space and the teachers were fantastic knowledgeable warm caring and passionate."
-Joanna

"I liked everything.
Great balance of emphasis on all of the aspects of yoga. It was great to see the bigger picture and the details as well. A great balance of theory and physical aspects of yoga.
Studio Tula is a lovely and welcoming environment, an enriching & positive course"
-Michal

"I feel empowered and connect with my body rather than listen to my monkey mind/ego.
Yoga is more than a physical pursuit; I am grateful for Lisa & Saskia emphasising this in the course and sharing the theory of yoga so we can begin to build a solid foundation to continue this beautiful practice.
Both teachers worked beautifully together."
-Helen

"The people.
The amazing space.
The philosophy of yoga.
The alignments.
I found this course better than I expected.
I will let go of my ego. (my new mantra)
Thank you Lisa and Saskia"
-Rhonda

With a background of 10 years of ballet and contemporary dance, to her surprise the practice of yoga resonated with her right away.  However, her journey required ten more years of a very inconsistent practice until she finally found the other limbs of Yoga beyond Asana - the physical postures of Yoga. Eventually she came across pranayama, mantra, meditation and the yogic philosophy. This broader understanding inspired her to keep a more consistent practice, and planted the first seed to become a yoga teacher.  Only after traveling around the world and moving to New Zealand did she finally decide to lift her yoga practice to a new level. Saskia completed her teacher training in Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga in July 2018 at The Power of Now Oasis. While she undertook the course primarily to fortify her own personal practice, the ease and peace that it inspired in her became also the urge to share what she gained through yoga to others.
