Yoga Styles

Our classes are tailored to suit you!

You won’t find a Qi Yoga “Style”. In fact you’ll find many yoga styles: some strong, some gentle, some dynamic and some more relaxing or meditative to suit everyone, regardless of age, flexibility (or lack of it).

Qi_090_loAll our teachers have a sincere desire to keep you safe by working within your limits, and to offer you options to explore the whole system of Yoga (not just circus tricks to post on Instagram!) This includes working with breath, alignment, meditation and the mind to find pleasure and ease along with mental clarity.

In a nutshell, people often feel energised but relaxed after our classes, with a heightened sense of well-being and contentment.
If this sounds attractive, then dive in to our timetable. We can adapt almost any class to suit any age or experience.

You’ll find 6 main styles of classes at Qi along with specialist other classes:

Ashtanga Yoga: Dynamic, challenging, flowing and inspiring

Hatha Yoga: A more general class to stretch you body, open your mind and raise your spirits.

Pilates (and Yoga/Pilates): Fantastic to strengthen, stretch and tone everywhere.

Pre-natal yoga: a must for every mum-to-be to prepare for your big day and create the birth you want.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga:  A flowing yoga style where movement/asana is linked closely to the breath for a meditative flow and absorption in the practice.

Yin Yoga: Yin Yoga is a relaxing yoga style, using support to hold gentle postures for deep opening and release. Yin Yoga focuses on depth in asana, to hold awareness with your breath.

We keep our classes small, safe and personal so you enjoy close supervision from our highly-trained teachers who will adapt class content to suit the people in that session.
(Please note: We do not heat the room.)

Qi_202Our classes are graded:

  • STRONG: physical, challenging and flowing to build heat, stamina and flexibility.
  • MODERATE: A more measured pace to suit new or experienced yogis plus time for to learn peace of mind. Great to build your confidence and learn the power of Yoga.
  • GENTLE: Gentle with a  focus on restoring energy, reducing stress and calming your mind.

Also, just so you know, I have been really pleased with my experience teaching at Qi.  I continue to meet people in the community who love practising with us and appreciate the personal attention, safety/comfort level, adjustments and modifications provided.  It is a pleasure to work with like-minded yogis

My love of yoga began at Qi in Manly and as locals we are incredibly lucky to have such an authentic and nurturing yoga studio so close by!
