Yoga Wisdom

Helping to create a tranquil atmosphere

Yoga Wisdom was started in 2000 and moved to this property in Western Extension, Benoni in 2001. Helping to create a tranquil atmosphere and good vibes to assist our journey towards discovering the presence of our truth. There are two studios, one where we have the classical yoga practices and a smaller one for the aerial yoga practice. Only 4 slings/hammocks for the aerial class.
Here we also have yoga mats to purchase, books, dvds, audio cds, yoga pants and tops. All things that compliment and assist our practice. For beginners we have yoga mats to loan. And we have many props for all to use to assist in our poses, blocks, cushions, blankets, straps and much more. These items can also be purchased or brought with for your practice.

Good Reads

Yoga Wisdom aims to bring as best possible the full experience of yoga, physical, spiritual, emotional and energetic elements. Combining the breathing practices with the movements and including spiritual teachings and meditation, brings us to the full expression of our being, connecting us to the wholeness of our essence.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha focuses on the alignment and gentle movement to find a foothold on each posture individually. Suitable for beginners and advanced students. This style of yoga is very classical, the way many practice in India, Nepal and Tibet. Hatha yoga is a full rounded class which could bring light on yogic philosophy, spiritual practice, breathing practices (Pranayama), relaxation and meditation practice. At Yoga Wisdom we allow freedom to express our inner worlds, thus each teacher has their own style of practice and teaching based on previous experience and background. At times the poses can be held and at others, a more advanced flow from pose to pose. Enjoy the diversity and benefits of many worlds.  

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

Ashtanga yoga is a strong disciplined practice of the same sequence. It requires strength of mind and body. In this class, we venture into the first sequence of Ashtanga. It is fun and challenging. Great for athletes and very energetic people. Also great for building strength and flexibility. A practice of deep awareness into the habitual patterns holding one back from moving with freedom and joy. For those who have done ashtanga classes, Jeanette teaches it with her style of giving her own personal experiential knowledge and tips. Including different asanas and props when needed to experience a different feel to understand the physics and dynamics of a pose. Beginners class held on Thursday, more advanced practice available on Tuesday.

Kundalini Yoga

In this class and style of yoga, Jeanette allows the exploration of the ancient practices that are used to awaken the energy system and works from inside out. The physical asanas are utilized in a different way, instead of flowing or holding the poses as in the Hatha Yoga or Ashtanga, the poses are repeated for a time. Thus making it extremely accessible for beginners on a physical level, and mentally engaging for the more adept student. This practice uses the arcane techniques for upliftment and transformation towards union of mind, body and soul. Jeanette’s style is unique and allows you further exploration of your own body and experience. Sometimes the best way to understand it, is to experience it!

Aerial Yoga

Aerial yoga is a combination of traditional Yoga and aerial silk acrobatics, assisting in learning to align, activate and rejuvenate the body. With the aid of the hammock, you are able to drop deeper into your stretches as well as engaging your core easily. Aerial allows your body to lengthen ligaments, relax muscles, and decompress the spine. And just like land yoga inversions, hanging upside down improves circulation, spinal alignment, improved focus and more energy! An amazing practice to feel free and relaxed, helping our ability to let go, releasing the tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and strength. It is a great deal of fun and certainly takes us towards our childlike selves, exploring our freer nature.
