Yuj Life Yoga Community is a welcoming network of dedicated Yogi's as well as people interested in the Yoga lifestyle. We believe in equal access to Yoga for each and every member of society regardless of physical ability, age, gender, socioeconomic status or life experience.
The meaning of the word "Yoga" is "union". It is derived from the Sanskrit root "yuj," (pron. "yug") meaning "to join", "to unite". In Yoga we practice to unite the mind body connection, the connection to ourselves and then the connection we share with others.
At Yuj Life we offer Yoga classes, Workshops, Meditation, 1:1 yoga sessions, private classes, Yoga Workshops for PTs and other fitness professionals, corporate classes and access to other therapeutic services such as massage, counselling and hypnotherapy.
Yuj Life Community Yoga is set up as a Not for Profit initiative. We offer a range of daily classes from beginner basics to Yoga for experienced Asana practitioners. For some classes the room is heated to your own body temperature to maximise detoxing and limbering up of the physical system. Other classes are gently warmed or non heated depending upon the outside temperature.
All profit from our daily schedule of public classes allows the Yuj Life team to function and to then run free of charge or donation based classes for frontline service workers, disadvantaged groups in society, at risk members of society and youth, Trauma survivors and those at risk of self harm or suicide.
We have now started during Trauma-Informed Yoga classes for Frontline Yoga. The founder of Yuj Life, Kirsty, has her own personal experience of suicide, anxiety, depression, grief, loss and living with both physiological and emotional responses to years of compounded stress through generational trauma and tension. She is a Clinical Social Worker and Counselor who discovered the greatest release through her own personal journey into Yoga. Always travelling her own path back into a body with love light and peace, Kirsty wishes to expand the awareness of Trauma informed Yoga and Yoga being made accessible for all. It is from this intention that Yuj Life has been created with a group of beautiful Yoga teachers on board to make this possible.
Every member of the Yuj Life Community Yoga team genuinely wishes both physical and emotional wellbeing to all members of society. We wish to share the joy of yoga to you all.
Most importantly we thank the members of our public classes for their continued support that allows us to offer Yoga to the broader community under this not for profit initiative.
