Namaste / Welcome
“flex your body, relax your mind….take some time for you!”
Try a class anytime during the term, your first class is complimentary!
You don’t need to be flexible or fit or have had any previous yoga or meditation experience. The movements and postures are given in stages and you are encouraged to move mindfully, connect to your breath, listen to your body, calm your mind, relax and enjoy!
Yoga2Fitness “flex, tone and relax” classes are a mindfull movement practice of classic hatha yoga postures, combined with some pilates style movements, Qi Gong/Tai Chi warm ups, Feldenkrais releases, pranayama (breathing techniques) and a relaxing guided meditation.
Beginners are welcome to join a class anytime during the term.
The practice of Yoga helps to improve balance, posture, co-ordination, concentration, flexibility, strength, left-right brain development, circulation, respiration and digestion. The nature of Yoga is non competitive making this a very accessible type of exercise for all fitness levels and often a welcome option or support to competitive sports and weight loss programs. Or maybe you are stressed and overworked, or recovering from an injury or illness, or have a stiff back or neck and looking for improved flexibility. The movements are given in stages, with plenty of options for all levels and encouragement to listen to your body, move slowly with awareness, modify if applicable, relax and enjoy.
You will leave feeling calm, rejuvenated and ready to face the world again.
Classes are held in comfortable, welcoming church halls in Heathridge and Beldon and the upstairs meeting room at Joondalup library and the Currambine Community Centre.

I’ve recently just discovered Yoga2fitness and I’m a lovin it! Bettina you are a great teacher and your verbal instructions are fantastic. Always lovely and clear. Plus I love your meditation voice. So calming. I just cant wait to get to the next class!!!! Dominique
Just wanted to say thank you for all the work you put into your Yoga classes. They just get better and better all the time. As I approach my 68th birthday I know my skin etc looks my age but I am so much fitter and more flexible than most of my friends and I owe that to yoga and your classes. So just a pat on the back to you and a big thank you. Namaste Jannette
I love my 3 weekly sessions, this is so much nicer than a gym. Bettina’s instructions are so easy to follow and I feel great afterward. Thoroughly recommend for beginners to advanced. Deb
I was just thinking of you and thinking about how much I get from your classes. So I thought….I need to tell you. I love going to your classes, you are an amazing yoga teacher and I really cannot wait to go to your classes. You get me through my busy week and calm my over processing mind. Thank you Bettina. Not just me but so many. Nearly 40 people last Wednesday night! Tania
Just wanted to send a message to say I love your classes! You are always so warm and welcoming and I look forward to your classes each week. I always leave each class in a star of peace, feeling it has given me just what I’ve needed! Whether it be a good nights sleep, a self-hug at a time i needed it or pushing myself to improve my flexibility and strength and muscular balance. Your classes have been awesome also in informing my own soft tissue therapy clinic in terms of linking the anatomy and physiology to specific stretches and strengthening positions. I love your classes and recommend them to my clients and everyone I come across in need! Many thanks and Namaste Jo
Thank you so much for today Bettina. It was a wonderful class. I love the way you are very descriptive so I didn’t need to twist my neck to watch every time we moved through a new sequence. Thank you
