Karen - Flow, Roll and Release

Flow, Roll & Release classes

Starting this Wednesday at 7:15pm we’re introducing Flow, Roll and Release Yoga classes!

Join Karen for these classes, themed around Chinese meridians, in which we will explore facial trains to both energise and release tension in the body.

This practice will be a blend  of Yin & Yang  with:
 
  • Myo Fascia Release 
  • Flow to feel into body
  • Roll to find the sweet spots of tension
  • Release to unravel tension stored in the tissues
  • Yin/ Yang cultivate equilibrium within in the body, mind and spirit

Live streaming & recorded classes

We are so grateful for the continued support we have received with the transition to online classes.

We are still offering multiple classes a day and a variety of styles. If you haven’t tried it out yet, please join us!

Registering for online classes

  • You can register for classes in the yogafusion app, or from the class schedule on our website.
  • It’s best to sign up at least 30 minutes before class starts so you have time to receive the link and log in – but if you leave it until the last minute you’ll still be able to join – just make sure you’re ready to go!
  • Online classes and recordings are available wherever you are – anywhere in the world!

Preparing for your virtual class

  • All you need is enough room to roll out your mat and a good internet connection.
  • You can join on your phone, laptop or computer (if you’re really tech savvy – or are at home with someone who is – link the class to your tv!)
  • Log in a few minutes early to test your audio and video, so you’re ready to go when class starts.

Viewing video classes

  • We will e-mail you a link to the class at least 20 minutes before it starts; they are sent out every few minutes, right up until the class starts.
  • If you do not receive the link 10-15 minutes before class, please reach out and we can re-send the link.
  • If the class times don’t suit, register anyway as you will be emailed a link to the recording of the class, available for 24 hours.

Sliding scale pricing available

  • We know this is an incredibly stressful time for many in our community and we want you to know we are here to assist you by keeping connected to the benefits of yoga practice, and each other.
  • We have introduced a sliding scale pricing option to pay what you can afford – starting from as little as $5/class.


Yoga can be a transformative tool for physical, mental and emotional health and well-being – never has there been a more crucial time to keep a regular practice.


Be well,

Amy, Simon & the Yogafusion Team

Updates for our community

We are continuing to provide a calm and safe space for you and your yoga practice. In order to do this we have taken the following actions:

  • Removal of shared props (ie straps and blocks)
  • Provision of alcohol gel and disinfectant
  • Increased frequency of cleaning
  • Teachers will no longer be doing any hands-on adjustments
  • Reduced class sizes to ensure adequate space and distancing

As class sizes are capped, preference will be given to those booked online. If you have not already done so please download our app for iPhone or Android as this is the best way to book and cancel classes as well as receive updates.

This rapidly evolving situation is impacting us all as we seek to ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff and community, as well as  managing the broader business implications.

The studio remains open, however this may change at any point. We will extend passes should we be required to close temporarily. We are working hard to ensure an online platform is available should you be unable to attend the studio and will inform you of access to this in due course.

We thank you for your support, patience and well wishes at this challenging time.

This is the real yoga 🙏

How to stay physically and mentally healthy over summer

Summertime in Australia can be a magnificent time – beach holidays, joyous barbeques, crimson sunsets late in the evenings; an all round wonderful time of year. But with the stress of Christmas, the tensions of seeing family and the general busyness we can forego our most important asset we have – our wellbeing.

We’ve gathered our inspirational teachers together and asked them to give us a peek into their summer lives and how they managed to stay healthy – both physically and mentally – during this time.

Here’s how our staff love to stay healthy physically over summer:

This is the season to simply slow down, absorb the sun and enjoy nature’s bounty. adelaide summer activitiesSpend time outdoors – mother nature has a lot to offer us! Teresa

My home brewed kombucha is my personal life saver. Amy R

To keep healthy during this time of year, I love walking in the sunshine. Charlton

With the heat of the day it can be easier to stay indoors and get complacent about exercise. I like to walk early in the morning before the heat of the day, yoga (goes without saying) and paddle boarding. Being active releases endorphins the feel good hormones so you actually feel physically fitter and more energised. Staying hydrated is a big one over the summer. Nothing more refreshing than ice cold water with mint, cucumber and lemon which is a great antioxidant. Sue

Exercise early in the morning, make use of the warmer evenings for spending more beach yoga adelaidetime outside to relax, reconnect and to have fun. Eat lots of cooling foods such as watermelon, cucumber, mint, fennel, coriander, rose and aloe. Reducing the amount of alcohol you drink is also a great idea as it heats your blood and is rather dehydrating. Amy L

Here’s how our staff love to stay mentally healthy over summer:

Relax and breathe! Take time to slow down and enjoy not just every day, but each and every moment. Teresa

To keep my mind calm and stable during periods of stress and to balance out the highs and lows, I always turn to meditation. Charlton

Meditation, meditation and meditation! And it doesn’t necessarily have to be sitting. Meditation is simply single pointed focus so being mindful of each task can help keep that “monkey mind” at bay and as a result, reduce stress.

‘I won’t lie that a nice drop of red wine or a cool gin and tonic with a favorite magazine or good book gives me mental space.’ Sue

To keep as mentally healthy as possible, I like to get outdoors, preferably barefoot, adelaide summerheading to the beach, picnic in a park or a bush walk. Amy R

The main thing that I normally recommend is: do something small once each day.

This is a guideline that I live by for both my physical and mental wellbeing. We often get caught up in the idea of being active meaning that you have to do a workout for 90 minutes or meditation requiring us to sit perfectly still for half an hour.

While these are good too, time is precious and often fleeting – especially at this time of year. So we often need to practice the little things when we can. Wake up in the morning and doing a few rounds of Sun Salutes is just as valid as practicing a 75 minute class of hot yoga or going for a walk around the block will be enough to get some energy moving through your body.

If things seem to be getting too much (which they so often do), take just five minutes for yourself and do nothing but be still. You can sit in a chair, stand overlooking your backyard or just take the time to fully appreciate that morning cup of coffee, rather than drinking it as fast as you can and then rushing to get on with your day.

Sometimes we surprise ourselves and these few minutes encourage us to then do a little more and then… a little more again. Other times it’s enough and we can then move on, but those few moments will echo through the rest of our day. Simon
