The glands that make yoga different

Yoga postures target glands in a way that makes it totally different from any other form of exercise. You’ll learn how particular poses access our glands so as to release hormones for various desirable effects, such as energy, calming, desire, and more.

Yoga poses, or “shapes”, have been tested and developed over thousands of years. Modern science has now confirmed how well they work, and more and more benefits are being confirmed every year.

Persons with particular conditions will be given variations of poses, in the usual way, so that the class can reach as many as possible, and also help with your individual situation.

The format will include verbal information about poses, and practise of each pose, step by step.

Standard beginner poses, or Special Focus classes, or both

There are classes of standard, easy hatha yoga poses adapted especially for beginners of all ages.

The course also includes a range of special focus classes such as Women Only, Anxiety, Backcare, Easy Restorative, and Fifty Plus. These are described underneath the beginner timetable that you can see further down this page.

All poses are simple and introductory that all can do, using props to help you if needed. Teachers will discretely adapt poses, on the spot, to assist you if needed.

Beginner yoga pose

You can also repeat the course as many times as you like.

Studies show that building a new habit takes an average of three months of regular classes. That means that if you use this easy way to do regular yoga, you’ll highly likely to create a life changing habit.

More reasons to give  Flametree Iyengar Yoga a try

At our studio in Darwin, we believe Iyengar Yoga is the best yoga style.(It’s named after Mr BKS Iyengar, who became one of the best-known yoga teachers of the late 20th century.)

The advantages of Iyengar yoga are:

  • Due to clear instruction and teachers taking the time to assist, you learn to do the poses correctly rather than rushing through them. You will only get the benefits of each of the tried and tested poses if you are able to get into some appropriate version of the pose. This allows the pose to trigger natural releases from your glands… and that is a key part of why the poses work.
  • Flametree’s Iyengar yoga teaches in five levels of classes. The beginner yoga level is simple, introductory poses or preparatory poses. Flametree does not follow the all-to-common “one size fits all” approach to training.
  • Having a better understanding of poses gives you the independence and confidence to practice at home
  • Iyengar uses props at all levels. Props assist you  getting into poses, regardless of your flexibility
  • Postures are taught in steps, making sure the foundation of the posture is correct. This makes poses easier to do and learn.
  • Iyengar teachers are trained over three years, for a minimum 400 hours. Teachers of other styles of yoga have less detailed training, and therefore less knowledge to draw on.
  • Over time, Iyengar teaches inverted postures like shoulder stand, as many yoga benefits come from inversions
  • Iyengar Yoga classes give you “show and tell” instructions on how to get into each pose. The verbal description is easy step by step stages. The teacher will closely watch how the people in the class are doing with each pose, and will ongoingly offer further verbal assistance.
  • There is a negligible chance of injury with Iyengar, especially with beginner classes, because of the knowledge and training of the teachers, plus the use of props
  • Iyengar yoga is a powerful tool to reduce stress and in turn help total physical and spiritual well-being
  • The Iyengar method is inclusive and has a systematic process to help all students do yoga no matter their conditions.

When are the classes?

Our beginners yoga course will run 5 weeks from Tuesday 5th May. You can join the course at any class, or on any day, for up to 2 weeks after it starts.

We will be running many classes during this period offering a flexible opportunity to enjoy a wide range of beginner yoga classes each week.

The Special Focus classes are also pointed out on the timetable below.

If you use an iPhone, the World Clock feature on your Apple clock can be set to show Flametree’s class times in Darwin, Australia.

Here’s one way you can use the app below.

  1. On the left hand side, insert Flametree’s class time in Darwin Australia from the above timetable.
  2. On the right hand side, insert the name of your city on the bottom right.
  3. Your local time for the class will show in the top right hand box.


Class Length & Locations

Class length: Beginners ONE hr.

Online classes are taught as a live, interactive class. The teacher and the students can all see and hear each other. This gives maximum opportunity for the teacher to assist students in a way that allows students to get the most benefits, and make the most rapid progress. Postures can also be adjusted to suit who is in each particular class.

When offline classes are available, Flametree teaches in Room One at 19 Bishop St, Woolner, and at our City room in Darwin CBD, at the times and locations shown in the timetable.

CITY classes are at Harbour Room, 2 Smith St, Darwin (beside Anglican Cathedral, near walk-way to Waterfront).

What is done in the above types of beginner classes

With a beginner course pass, you can each week come to any combination of the above beginner course classes.

In each week, beginner course classes have a similar content and syllabus, with some variation for your interest, and based on the focus of the particular teacher.

Over the course, you will learn approximately 30 beginner yoga poses.

  • The Beginner Standard Pose classes are all those beginner classes that are not marked with a
    special focus. In these classes, approximately 20-30 introductory and simple yoga poses are taught over
    the several weeks of the course. They are also revised regularly. This allows you to get better at them steadily, and also allows people to join the course over the first couple of weeks of the course. In the standard poses classes, there is some extra focus on aerobic movement, including dynamic sun salutes and lunges.
  • The Special Focus  classes (other than just Beginner Course classes), listed in the above timetable, have these meanings:.
  • Beginners  (Women Only) – Information & postures for women whether menstruating, pre-menopausal, menopausal or post-menopausal. Plus matters for improved intimacy.
  • Beginners  (Easy Restorative) – Focus on restorative poses for energy, renewal, de-stressing & relaxing… & easier than the average beginner class.
  • Beginners (Anxiety Focus) Aims to show how to deal with stress and quieten the mind to help relax and build mental intentionality to help with weight issues among other issues.
  • Beginner (Backcare Focus). This class uses less poses than average, with a focus on poses that have been proven to help with back issues. Others will still find the poses useful, so feel free to attend the class whether or not the back is something that you particularly want to address.
  • Beginner (Fifty Plus). This class addresses particular issues which are of greater challenge to older people, and does it in a way that works better for them. On average, more props are used, including some of the particular facilities and equipment in our Woolner rooms. Again, persons under 50 can also attend if they wish.

What people are saying about yoga or Flametree Yoga Studio

“The practice of yoga over the last 15 years have convinced me that most of our fundamental attitudes to life have their physical counterparts in the body….Tenacity is gained by stretching in various yoga positions for minutes at a time, while calmness comes with quiet, consistent breathing and the expansion of the lungs.”
Yehudi Menuhin

…We are so lucky to have this school here in Darwin.

Kayte, Facebook

What a blessing. We finally have back our teachers back. (Comment from lockdown in Italy).

Enrico, Facebook

“I have been practising IYENGAR for over four years. As a mature person, and a latecomer to yoga, I have found the practice invaluable to me on all physical, mental and philosophical levels. It is suited to all ages and its success is due to the mindful guidance and the integrity of the institution’s trained teachers.”
Pamela Jackson

Better than 10 physio sessions. Highly recommended.

Lisa, Facebook.

“Within the quietness that results from a focused mind is revealed the inner quality of human consciousness that is normally hidden.
[It]… has many characteristics. They include peace, joy, compassion, discrimination, energy, ease and detachment. When they begin to flower in the mind of a practitioner, they result in a life that becomes more harmonious, joyful and generous.”

Godfrey Devereux

Love this place. The best yoga studio in the NT

Rachel (Flametree Facebook Page)
