The colder temperatures and longer nights of winter encourage us to seek and connect with the warmth within ourselves. A natural tendency is to bunker down and hibernate, but we need to keep moving to improve circulation to keep us warm and get rid of the winter blues! Winter is the time to focus inwards, consolidate the body's energy, and build strength and stability, as well as a time to rest and regenerate the body.

This winter season we will focus on the Endocrine Glands, featuring the thyroid, thymus, pineal, pituitary, adrenal, pancreas and reproductive glands.
 
The intricate functions of the body are regulated by the "ductless" or endocrine glands, which secrete their chemical messengers into the bloodstream. Rather like the opposing muscles of the skeletal system, the endocrine system acts a principal of balance - one hormone stimulates a set of responses, another inhibits it, and all act together in a complex interrelationship with each other, to bring a fine balance to the body and the mind.

We will explore a series of postures that help to balance your mood, appetite, sleep functions and hormones including creating glandular locks (bandhas). They will refresh and stimulate the endocrine system to improve your overall sense of well-being and health.

Yoga classes for Term 3 will start on Tuesday 18 July 2017. 

All new students are welcome to a Free Trial.

Nalini Singam, a certified yoga instructor, has 19 years experience in Corporate Finance.  Looking to relax from her stressful and demanding career and unable to get a good nights sleep, she tried out yoga.  Experiencing a session of pranayama (breathing) in her first yoga class,  Nalini realized that she had found the lifeline back to herself.  After falling in love with yoga and embracing the practice for 10 years,  Nalini traded in her high heels for bare feet.  She completed a full time time teacher training with Master Manisekaran, one of the world leading exponents of yoga who trained under Swami Sathyananda in Bihar, India.
 
 Now a full time Registered Yoga teacher (Level 2) with Yoga Australia and a practitioner, Nalini feels privileged to be able to immerse herself in her yoga practice and incorporate it into her daily life, whilst choosing to share it with others.
 
Grounded with Gratitude was established in 2009 , taking her passion to a new level, offering Traditional Hatha Yoga to people from all walks of life.  Nalini infuses her classes with warm-heartedness and joy to connect with her students.  Keeping to authentic Yoga practice, she encourages students to work within their present capacity only challenging themselves into stronger poses once the foundations are stable. Students are entreated to move deeply inward to find alignment that includes physical, mental and emotional balance, learning to connect the mind, body and breath..
 
Nalini currently teaches Yoga and Deep Relaxation/Yoga Nidra classes at Pines Learning Centre, Balwyn Community House, Contact Community Centre, Wonga Park Communtiy House, Yarrunga Community House, Workplace Yoga and other group classes as well as running private classes from her boutique home studio overlooking a luscious private park, creating an oasis of calm for her students to unwind. She loves looking at her students’ serene faces after Yoga Nidra, seeing that they are not the same people who walked into class 75 minutes earlier.  She also loves her Yoga for Kids and Teens. classes that are energetic and full of fun.
