    Hi Amanada
    Just to clarify the classes in Whitby are each Wednesday at 715 and are $10. I have done Ashtanga yoga before but due to injury cannot manage it. Thanks

      Hi there Joy

      Thank you for your query. Yes, our community classes are on Wednesdays, 7.15 p.m. at Adventure School hall and are $10.

      Depending on the injury, most can be accommodated with modifications. Importantly, we need to keep moving. Whether you start off (again, depending on what the injury is) walking or chair yoga, just keep moving. Our classes are kept simple so as to cater for all.

      You can find us on Facebook – Whitby Community Yoga, or Metta Yoga. Please feel free to pm me with any questions you may have.

      All the best!

    Please advise of times and locations of any power/vinyasa/advanced classes. Oh, and was it still $10 per class? I live in Tawa.

      Hi there Lawrence

      The classes at Adventure school are not on at the moment – the $10 classes. For power vinyassa and advanced 0r any level classes, try Abundance both at Porirua and Thorndon.

      Best of luck

    Hi, I will be coming to Wellington for work for the next couple of months, staying in Porirua and looking for a yoga class. I have been going to weekly iyenga yoga classes for the last year and a half and would be interested in your Wednesday eve classes. Would you advise attending both the yin class and the vinyassa class? I would like to start next Wednesday if possible. Please can you confirm times and costs for one or both of the classes. Also a street address would be good as not familiar with the area.

    Many thanks Emma.

      Hallo Emma

      Thank you for your enquiry. Our class on a Wednesday is a Vinyassa class at 7.30pm. We cancelled the Yin class for now – as it was a new class and with the cold setting in attendance hasn’t been too great. I will be looking at rescheduling it later in the year when it gets warmer. The address is Adventure School Hall, Longitude Place, Whitby. You can contact me on 027 242 6704. $10 per class and we sell a 10-class card which gives you 11 classes. For a yin class, I could suggest a Sunday morning 9.30am at Abundance in Thorndon (inside Cityfitness gym). Those fees are $20 a week and then you can attend as many classes during the week and weekend as you like. We teach Power Vinyassa and Yin at that studio. I teach yin at other studios too (as well as vinyassa) and can let you know if you want.

      Best regards

    Hi, I am very keen to come along to vinyassa classes in Whitby. I have done yoga before but still consider myself a beginner. I have a regular Wednesday evening booking that I can’t break. Do you have classes in the Porirua area on any other days?


    • amanda says:

      Hi there Pam

      Thanks for your enquiry. We don’t have more classes at that venue at the moment. I teach at a few other studios too. Abundance studio, part of Cityfitness, has just announced a very reasonable deal for classes. Why not check out the website? We have some really great classes there. There is a studio in Porirua.

      Best of luck! Amanda

    Hi, I live in Whitby Porirua and i have never done Yoga before but i would like to try it out, would you please give me some recommendation in terms of the class type and class schedule?


    • amanda says:

      Hi there

      What type of class you do depends on what it is that you are looking for in yoga. We have the two main type classes, Yin and Vinyassa (yang).

      Yin targets mainly the joints, ligaments, fascia and tendons in the body and also teaches one to become still, as the poses (mostly seated or lying down) are held for a while. Vinyassa is a more energetic full body workout, with some quieter poses at the end.
      Our yin class is on Wednesdays at 6.45 pm and the vinyassa class is after that at 7.30.

      Thank you for your enquiry – I do hope to see you there! Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.



We would love to hear from you
