“Sometime the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths”

Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony
& New Year
Intention Setting Gathering.
January 4th 2020
UMAMA Yoga is very proud to be partnering with the local indigenous community to welcome in 2020 with a traditional Aboriginal smoking ceremony and intention setting workshop.
In this workshop we will gather on sacred land, as we share ideas and inspiration to set our intentions for the new year. We will welcome local elders who will share with us the significance of an Aboriginal smoking ceremony and its cleansing and healing qualities.
We would love to welcome all to this unique gathering. The event is open to everyone, there will be no movement based practices on the day. All proceeds from this event will be given over to the local indigenous community to support with Aboriginal cultural programs.

If yoga was something you enjoyed before baby, then mums and bubs yoga could be the perfect way to help you make time for and nourish yourself, and maintain your all-important sense of self – which is often forgotten in the newborn haze! We also love welcoming new mother's into these groups, some, who have never tried Yoga before.
These classes are open to all levels including beginners. We recommend that you wait at least 6 weeks after birthing your baby before attending. In each class we will work through movement, breath work and meditation. You will also learn how to guide your baby through gentle yoga postures to support you in bonding and having fun with your baby..
New in 2020

My Yoga Space

What is a community circle? This auspicious evening is a night of mediation, movement, community and a little pinch o activism for both MEN and WOMEN. Communities have been gathering in circles since the beginning of time to share experiences, stories, thoughts, ideas and prayers.
Loneliness is a growing issue for all ages. With the rise of social media and 'convenience' living we have never before felt more isolated. Our monthly circles are curated to create connection not only to others but also a deep connection and listening to our selves.
