who are we?
surya tara yoga
We are a small yoga studio with classes running on most days with an emphasis on attending to the needs of the individual. Our classes are usually 5-10 people in size and and are held at the the Hallett Cove Lions Club on Quailo Avenue, the old original Perry Barr Farm. This old restored barn is perfect for yoga, with a great ambiance and plenty of space. We have a range of classes to suit different levels and needs, from classes based on gentle stretching and meditative practices to the more dynamic morning classes. The style of yoga we practise is mostly based on alignment, but we tailor the yoga to suit the needs of our students. The aim of our classes is to quieten the mind, to establish a strong connection between the mind and body, and to find the joy in our hearts. This is yoga.
The studio is run by myself, Ruth Stanton – I teach all of the classes currently, and I look forward to sharing my experience of yoga with you with the community we have built together.
Ruth Stanton has been living in Adelaide for 9 years, having moved from the UK where she trained in Karuna Yoga with Ruth White, of the Iyengar lineage. Ruth Stanton has been teaching yoga since 1999, and although her background is very much of the alignment style, she has since trained with many different teachers and schools of yoga, including Satyananda, where the Yoga Nidra tradition originates from.
