Yoga and Yoga Therapy at Karli Health Centre

Originally, Karli Health Centre provided group classes in yoga practices. We have a number of highly-experienced yoga instructors on our staff, including a couple of qualified yoga therapists.

We do still run some group classes, contact us for further details.

Yoga Therapy

As our service has evolved, we now see the need for individual programs, created in conjunction with counsellors, that use evidence-based yoga techniques to meet the needs of clients.  These individual sessions are empowering and support clients in managing anxiety and stress.  The aim is to support clients to develop their own internal management skills utilising differing yoga tools, including:  breathing, relaxation, meditation, mindfulness and Asana (yoga postures).

Yoga instructors are supervised to ensure that change is client well-being is managed effectively.  Click here to read about Karli’s approach to Yoga Therapy.

Testimonial from March 2023 Retreat:  “I have had a wonderful experience meeting with new ladies I haven’t met at the retreat. It gave me outlook on about heathy eating, exercising, breathing techniques, food knowledge, yoga and mediating. It made me feel nice and finding a right path for myself with my stresses, anxiety, learning how to love myself and other among things I have learnt as well”.
