Gentle Yoga At Numala

Designed for both men and women, to allow you the time and space to calm your thoughts, reconnect with your breath, and gently move your body. Whether you are a beginner, recovering from an injury, or an advanced yogi, gentle yoga can help support your body, mind and soul, with options given for varying levels of experience and ability. 

Each class includes breath work and a variety of accessible yoga poses, before we sink into meditation and deep relaxation. 

The class is specifically timed in the evening to allow you to attend to your personal, parenting, work, or other duties and then turn your attention to one of your most important responsibilities –your wellbeing.

While strong exercise burns off energy, a gentle yoga class can replenish energy, giving you more capacity to tackle the complexities of life.​

Tess Heyns

Introducing Our Instructor

Tess has been teaching yoga for over 10 years both in Australia & overseas and has been a student of yoga for almost 20 years.

She has studied Hatha Yoga, Japanese Okido Yoga & Yin Yoga. Whilst she has studied & practiced many styles of yoga, she is particularly passionate about teaching Yin Yoga and taking people on a journey through the more subtle practices.

She teaches with a grounding strength and grace which invites you to move deeper into your own practice.
Tess wholeheartedly believes that there is a practice for everyBODY and endeavours to help you find your own practice rather than fitting you into a box. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to complete the YOGA session?

​Yoga is not competitive as it allows you work at your own pace, listening to your body, gradually encouraging it to

stretch and strengthen when it’s ready.

The classes offered are suitable for all levels of fitness and flexibility as well as all ages. 

You are never too old, unfit or out of shape to start yoga.


​What can I expect from each YOGA session?

There are many different types of yoga available, and I am sure it is a challenge to know which style is best for you. At Numala Forest Retreat we practice Hatha Yoga, and our classes consist of more than just the physical postures (asanas).

We also offer the added benefit of meditation, directed receptive imaging and breathing exercises (pranayama). The breathing techniques we practise not only focus on strengthening your lungs, they also assist the body to relax and let go of tension, thus enhancing your ability to deal with stressful situations. 

This combination of different activities serves to deeply rejuvenate your whole body, leaving you feeling fresh and enlivened. The result is a calm mind which comes from the connection between our breath, emotions and mind enabling a clearer and more focused approach to life.
