It takes just one breath to return to our heart center
To remember that we are not just watching the stream,
We are the stream, that flows and meanders, twists and turns
We are the song bird, the laughter of a child, the cry of the wild
Inside and out, we are all and all is one, forever connected.
It is then that we are truly practising yoga.

Namaste :-)  If you're keen to re-ignite your yoga practise, build back after injury, or re-learn the basics, come and join us on the mat Wednesday mornings 9.30am - 10.30am for our Introduction to Yoga class.  Feedback has been incredible so far from my Ashtanga Yoga for Pregnancy DVD - both from ladies carrying little ones and from teachers around the world.  Even if you're not pregnant, the DVD is also a great introduction to The Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga, as it is modified and a lot gentler than the regular practice.  Click here for a preview of the trailer, if you would like to order a copy, I'd love to hear from you, take a look at our shop for this and other exciting things from The Heart Center.

As winter slowly meanders forward, I'll also be heading on a North island teachng tour, starting in Hamilton 23rd - 25th May, Wellington from 6th - 8th June and Auckland from 4th - 6th July.  If you have friends around and country you'd like to invite or visit and join, its a great way to share your yoga with others :-)

The Heart Center is the vision of Debi Hendra.  The idea is that yoga is accessible to anyone in Taupo who is interested in increasing their knowledge and ability to connect inwards and deepen their understanding of mind, body and spirit. In a quiet spot within three minutes of Taupo town centre, The Heart Center is a dedicated yoga and meditation space open to everyone. Whether you’re looking to build strength and flexibility, let go of stress or bring a little balance in your life, a regular yoga practise can help.

From your first class, you’ll find your body and mind will feel different - more open, more alive, more relaxed. Yoga works on many levels, slowly helping our bodies, minds and spirit lift, so each time you step on the mat, you’ll come a little closer to your own heart center.

I dedicate this website to my teachers John and Lucy Scott, Peter Sanson and Sharath – and offer my humble thanks for their patience, love and support. Thank you. Om shantih, Debi.
