Just wanted to thank Raewyn and Sunita for the classes made accessible online. I really enjoy them, and they encourage me to do more practice. I would be willing to pay to attend these classes if you can continue them.
I can imagine what must go on behind the scenes in getting these classes up and going.
Thank you again and I hope the classes continue.
Greatly appreciated, Dale
Excellent class, as usual Raewyn, thanks. Could see, hear and understand all clearly. An HDMI cable from the laptop to the television made it really easy to see. The cable was bought from a local electrical store. The yoga classes are all proceeding brilliantly.
Another great practice thanks Raewyn. Very clear & well paced – appreciated. See u next thurs x????.
Yoga is now very much part of my daily life and I really look forward to my yoga classes because; both the teachers are dedicated and motivational, I love to learn how to clear my mind and how to breathe correctly, it teaches me to relax, and as I age, it really helps with my flexibility.
I love the way Raewyn immerses us in the whole yoga experience: breathing and precepts as well as the poses.
Both Raewyn and Jo espouse the "essence" of the Yoga philosophy in that they both seem to carry the philosophy beyond the classroom and into everyday life, a true measure of the power of Yoga.
I shuffled in to Beecroft Yoga to meet the lovely Raewyn about five years ago. I had all the classic signs of a sedentary work body.... basically stiff, stressed and sore. But, softly, over time, Raewyn has worked her magic and surprisingly the other day a lovely man in my life described my walk as "athletic". Athletic ? Me ? Never. I took the compliment, but I knew... it was all Raewyn's work.
We had an easy drive up the M1 to the Bamboo Buddha where the urban retreat was held. It is an oasis of calm, a beautifully landscaped space with a great studio The yoga retreat was well structured with sessions of yoga and meditation interspersed with a delicious vegetarian lunch from the cafe.
We emerged feeling relaxed and happy, grateful for the opportunity to take our yoga practice further than usual and to meet some new people.
We were farewelled with some special treats!
A lovely way to spend a Saturday! Thank you Raewyn and Sunita!
A very special day of yoga, meditation and relaxation. Gorgeous location just the perfect distance from Sydney to feel removed and able to focus completely on yoga practice.
Lovely to be able to take the time to indulge the mind and body for a complete day without interruption . Left feeling refreshed and relaxed and with a greater knowledge of yoga practice.
I am really pleased I took the opportunity to attend and would certainly recommend.
All the very best , Jann
I thought I might not enjoy the Zoom classes so much but am gradually getting used to them & really enjoying them.
Raewyn and Sunita have done so well to get this all up and running. I am sure we all appreciate your efforts on our behalf.
You’re a star, Kathy
Loved today’s zoom class Raewyn, thank you. Feeling 9/10 now, and yesterday was a 3/10, so yoga definitely helps.
Best wishes, Lara
Hi Raewyn & Sunita, Just wanted to say thank you so much again for running these classes via Zoom – it is providing much needed structure to my week whilst working from home & is one of the only ways to really switch off from the world! I really enjoyed the sun salutation this morning Sunita, I have done it before but I preferred the gentle version today as I have an injury from running at the moment! I wear a sports watch which records yoga activities – I thought you might be interested in the effect that yoga has on your heart rate so I attached screenshots of my heart rate from both your classes on 22nd April & 24 April this week – as you can see it goes up with the more vigorous poses & then comes down to almost 40 BPM – yoga is pretty much the only activity that can chill anyone out like this in such a short space of time! ????♀️
Raewyn, I would be very pleased to write an ‘essay’ on how yoga and your teaching has become the stabilising force in my ageing life. Myself, as someone in their 70s, feel it is important to get across to students how careful you are in watching and accessing peoples abilities and what they can and shouldn't do. Older women get scared about tackling yoga for the first time.
My body has a lot of inherited quirks which means it's either "use it or lose it". Raewyn is very conscious of protecting while strengthening our bodies. Over the 5 years I've been in Raewyn's class she's helped me find ways to do the poses around any of my quirks while improving my flexibility. My body thanks you Raewyn.
I would like to thank you both for a lovely day at the Bamboo Buddha Urban retreat.
It was easy to get to and the place was very peaceful and welcoming.
The yoga practices with Raewyn and Sunita was interesting and the mediation was very calming.
Great lunch. Overall a very pleasant day!
Raewyn and Sunita’s retreat gave me the chance to step away from the everyday stresses and business of life and take time to just be - a lovely opportunity to enjoy deep but gentle yoga practice in a beautiful place, with lovely people.
For the first time in all the time I have been going to yoga classes with Raewyn and Sunita I had the great experience of being able to spend a day at last year’s yoga retreat. For me it’s always a rush to and rush out of class. The benefit of having a whole day to actually have time to truly relax and attend to the poses was tremendously enjoyable. I don’t have a day during the week to commit to a whole day of yoga and having the retreat on a Saturday when I actually had another day to feel the benefits was a great bonus….and I actually had time to meet some of the other members whom I usually only briefly see during the week. As expected Raewyn and Sunita did a wonderful job in leading the group through a variety of poses and relaxation techniques. I would happily recommend the retreat to anyone who wanted to experience yoga at another level.
