Our Yoga Room Eco Statement
New Duct Sock:
We have replaced our felxi ducts in the City and Modbury studios with state of the art duct socks. The fabric is specially developed with anti-microbial treatment, which is suited for areas with strict hygiene requirements. The duct sock allows air to permeate through the holes so the room heats up evenly. You will not even feel the heat blowing onto your body!
For Our Planet:
As part of our environmental policy, our business has signed up with Origin Energy in a program called Business Green Earth.
This program purchases electrical power for our business from a wind farm. Currently the maximum amount a business can dedicate to renewable sources is 20%. We have advised Origin that as new renewable energy programs become available, we will take up that option immediately.
We also participate in a carbon offset program with Origin Energy for our natural gas usage. We have arranged for a 100% carbon offset of our gas consumption, by supporting tree planting to capture CO2, and also by supporting technology to trap methane gas from escaping from waste land fill sites.
In practising yoga you have made a commitment to yourself to take care of that beautiful body that carries your soul through this life. By being GREEN we can all help to take care of GAIA, this beautiful earth, which carries ALL of us through our lives.
Allergens, dust particles and bacteria die up to 20 times faster in air with a relative humidity of 45 to 55%. The body’s immune system functions better in air with a relative humidity of 45 to 65%. Humidifying the air can help avoid respiratory infections, nose bleeds, dry skin, muscle pain, sinus and nasal pain and sore eyes.
Himalayan Salt Lamps
We have Himalayan salt lamps in our yoga rooms. These natural works of art not only look beautiful but they are known for their enormous benefits by neutalising electromagnetic fields. The lamps reduce the number of airborne bacteria indoors and boost our students wellness. They improve our studios air quality by creating healthy negative ions and draw water molecules from the air to the surface of the salt lamp (known as hygorscopy). As the lamp is warmed by the globe a gentle chemical reaction takes place.
Our mats are cleaned daily with eucalyptus oil which is antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiparasitic and antiviral, The antiseptic and deodorant nature of eucalyptus oil makes it a perfect room freshener. It also kills bacteria and germs in the air and keeps the room environment clean.
Our studios enable everyone of all ages and backgrounds to practice yoga in an uplifting enviroment that creates personal development and self love. Our Bikram practice is a designed sequence to provide a total body workout both physically and mentally. This sequence is practiced in our specially designed studios in a hot enviroment for maximum benefits. All of our teachers go through an intensive 9 week course where they undergo the Bikram practice twice a day. In between classes our teachers learn anatomy & physiology, yoga therapy, exercise physiology, dialogue, first aid, and undertake countless lectures from Bikram, Rajashree, Emmy Cleaves, Doctors, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Specialists, Authors, Research assistants from various universities, yogis and other special guests.
Once completed, teachers do a 6 month minimum internship with a certified Bikram Yoga Studio under constant supervision and feedback. For continued learning all teachers are expected to undergo yoga seminars with senior Bikram teachers at least once a year, recertify with Bikram or Rajashree every three years, and practice at least 4 times per week. We have what is known as “Quality control” within the community. We are constantly striving for our teachers to be the best they can be. If you have any questions regarding teacher training please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important to ensure that all our teachers are not only certified but also possess enough knowledge to provide all our students with a professional and consistent experience.
We are known for having a high level of student care and services. We are always here to listen! It is our belief that each of our students leave feeling with a sense of achievement, empowerment and gratitude. We will continue to grow as a studio and share the healing powers of this yoga.
