Kashmir Yoga Trek Aug 27- Sept 6, 2015

We love practicing in nature because that's where you experience Yoga. 
For visual inspiration, see our photos from last year's trek.
For a brochure with full itinerary and price, email

Yoga in the Park is a seed of Palate Earth which, when not in the park, is either enjoying:

Volunteer work with the Samarpan Foundation
Travelling around the world giving Yoga workshops,
school wellbeing programmes
health and wellbeing seminars,  

Yoga Therapy sessions,
Inspiring journeys and workshops. 

Limited mats available to hire.
mat hire is $1, otherwise just bring a towel!

What else to bring
Bring a friend, bring your children, bring your grandparents, bring an open mind and a willing heart.
And... bring a sarong to place over yourself/ face at the end when we lie down for relaxation to avoid sun or flies that can disturb this peaceful pose. We have an organic, natural bug spray available to keep those pesky insects away from our auras.
You may also wish to have a bottle of water nearby. 

CD's are available at all locations for $20, or you can order one now (+$2.60 postage).

If you already have an audio CD and would like to be reminded of the visual sequence, please contact me and we will email you a very detailed animation.

Yoga in the Park is an organic style of Yoga incorporating gentle flowing movements and steady postures from a combination of traditions. There are elements of Qi Gong and Tai Chi with strong focus on breath. This is what makes our classes achievable for all ages and stages.

We teach safely and encourage you to observe both your strengths and limitations, and to work wisely within them. Your body is your responsibility, and pain is not Yoga.
We're happy to answer your questions regarding the practice.

We would love to thank Lululemon, Peninsula Hot Springs, The Continental Hotel for their generous support. It's always a pleasure to work with people who share the vision.

Rain Policy
Sorrento will practice despite the rain as there is a rotunda we run under. Other venues: If rain is imminent, please call your local teacher (see contact details below) to confirm the class is still running.

Our Teachers:
Baxter (Sorrento)

Baxter designed a sequence that she felt could hold the mental focus of students whilst the body received the benefits. She drew on her training from various traditional sources with a strong belief that when movement combines with the breath, it can become meditation in action with all the physical and physiological benefits.
She is a senior qualified teacher (10 years, 1000 hours) and a fully qualified Yoga Therapist (600 hrs) with a post grad diploma from Yoga Therapy Australia.

Outside the park, Baxter is available for private consultations where she will design your personal practice based on a detailed assessment of your anatomy and constitution, or simply guide a private class for you. She is also available for tailored group classes.

Mornington: Simon
Simon is a qualified Yoga instructor and member of Yoga Australia.
“It is great practising Yoga in the outdoors. As we pace the breath with the postures, the fresh peninsula air invigorates the body/mind while the sounds of nature calm us". This is Simon's third year with Yoga in the Park.
"As my teacher always emphasises the simple welcome of one person to another as the essential Yogic teaching, all participants will be welcomed with love and respect to enjoy the classes".
