The Lotus Room Yoga Centre
Join a local yoga community at the Lotus Room Yoga Centre. Jennifer Cortis C.H. Dip Yoga is a dedicated yogini who has been sharing her passion for yoga with her students for over ten years. The Lotus Room story is a story of love and of family, and Jennifer hosts several workshops, yoga retreats, and yoga holidays to create the space for deeper connection with self and other.
At the Lotus Room you will experience yoga. You will join regular mixed level group yoga classes, which allow students to progress gradually at their own pace. There are also specific workshops of yoga for beginners or advanced practitioners. All yoga classes are based on Prana Flow ® Vinyasa Yoga, which combines movement with breath – a practice that trains you to tap into blissful Presence. Weekly meditation sessions explore various meditation techniques and how to integrate them into daily life. Themed workshops according to the cycles of nature aim to inspire personal evolution and harmony with all that is. Yoga is not just what we do on the mat, it is a way of life.
Why the Lotus Room?
“Yoga is not just what we do on the mat, but how we live our lives.”
To practice yoga is to experience well-being: physically, mentally and spiritually. During each yoga session at the Lotus Room, we integrate all aspects of the practice to ensure that the Lotus Room is a place of wholesome transformation for you, according to your needs and at your own pace.
The lotus flower is a symbol of purity, which remains untainted by dirty water it may float upon, just as the Self remains untainted by the material entanglement of sense enjoyment, mind and ego as the petals of a lotus peel open, through the practice of yoga, to reveal its pristine nature as pure consciousness and transcendental bliss.
You may join a yoga class regardless of your body shape, creed, and stage of life. There is no one way to practise yoga; yoga practice can be tailored to suit every individual, and you can dive just as deep as you want. At the Lotus Room we offer individual attention to ensure you are getting what you need from your practice.

Ever since the body-mind-spirit practice emerged in India over 2,500 years ago, yoga has been showing us how to effectively live in harmony with ourselves, others, and all that exists within our environment.
