Experience yoga in a warm and friendly environment where classes are small to meet your individual needs. At Yoga Hut classes are based on the principles of the Alexander Technique.
These sessions are gentle and mindful and encourage the practitioner to move with greater ease and freedom. Our classes help you to feel relaxed, empowered and energised.
The benefits of a regular yoga practice can be profound and life changing, our wish is to provide a yoga space that will allow you to experience these benefits.
“Together yoga and Alexander Technique provide a pathway to living with greater ease, less tension and a sense of wellbeing.”
Caroline Blackshaw took her first yoga class in 1990 and was immediately hooked. Since then she has been influenced by many teachers and styles, including Iyengar yoga, Satyandanda yoga, Viniyoga, Donna Fahey and most recently the Alexander Technique which focuses on finding ways to use the body with the least stress and strain.
Caroline established Yoga Hut in 2004 after completing her Diploma of Health – Yoga, with the Australian Institute of Yoga at CAE. She is a Senior Teacher with Yoga Australia and has a Advanced Diploma from the School of F. M. Alexander Studies as a teacher of Alexander Technique. Caroline combines both yoga and AT in her classes, enabling students to explore habits and patterns in their bodies, at the same time building strength and flexibility.
Caroline sees yoga as a wonderful tool to help enable practitioners to use their bodies well throughout their lives. Along with the obvious physical benefits she loves the sense of perspective and wellbeing yoga, Alexander Technique and meditation can provide for the regular practitioner.
Serendipity brought me to Yoga Hut, and I found a wonderful community of people enthusiastic about the mindful teaching of yoga and the Alexander Technique. I find I use these simple principles in my daily life off the mat too and the benefit is fantastic. Yoga Hut is so much more than an "exercise class" and I have formed many lovely friendships over the years there. Do yourself a favour and come along to a class, you'll be warmly welcomed!
Caroline's Alexander Yoga works for me. I love it as a way of improving-flexibility in a friendly, enjoyable atmosphere through postures and sequences that are tailored and adjusted to personal needs. Individual hinds on feedback helps you move in the most beneficial way for your body. Techniques can also be applied to improve ways of doing things in everyday life.
Caroline is one of the best yoga thinkers and practitioners in Melbourne. She brings a personalised intuitive approach - with what seems to be a magic ability to work out what your body is doing and how to provide tips and subtle adjustments to your posture, poses, walking... or whatever your particular quirk or need is. Small classes with a relaxed vibe and often a touch of delightful humour. It is impossible to leave a class not feeling like a better you!
