Lessons follow the NSW School Term dates
Home Studio: 15a Somerville Road, Hornsby Heights
(straight down the driveway and continue alongside the screened walkway).
BOOK NOW FOR TERM 1 2021 (1 Feb-1 Apr)
YES - we are back at the studio :) but in smaller classes. See the classes available above in the timetable.
Classes are back into the studio but there are only 5 students allowed due to COVID space restrictions. I still offer the option to practice via Zoom live if preferred on Thursday 12pm (or even just a weekly recording for a reduced price bearing in mind you have checked it is okay with your doctor to practice yoga before and you have enrolled and are familiar with yoga). Enrol by emailing me your time preferences (preferably attaching the enrolment form, which is attached to the tab to left called 'more about yoga'), then paying once your spot is confirmed only (Please pay online to Esther Becchio/ BSB032285/ACC568340 $222 for 10 yoga classes or $150 for a term of yoga nidra).All classes are 90mins except for yoga nidra which is 30mins. I do shorter private sessions if it is a current student wanting a home practice for example and this is 45mins at $50. Children sessions are often shorter too and parents are welcome to participate with their child. Private couples classes or mum and teen or dad and teen classes are also popular options for a treat to start or end a special day together. It is a good Christmas present idea to do with a loved one.
Monday 12pm Yoga Nidra (30min relaxation) spots
(great for those with sleep difficulties, with busy careers with high level responsibility, stress, carers, people in recovery or who are unable to do physical practices, parents with little self-time, everyone really)! ATM it's online but hopefully back T1.

Pre-booking necessary - Please note your place is not confirmed until form/payment is received to make administration smooth! If the spots are full, there are often last minute cancellations so it is worth enquiring mid-term in case.
We make up GIFT vouchers for special occasions such as Birthday, care vouchers, mother's day, father's day etc. for friends/loved ones. These can be made up immediately and sent out, dropped off or collected on the same day. Vouchers can be for one class up to a full term or a yoga therapy session voucher or yoga nidra term so can vary in price from as little as $15 for a yoga nidra session to $220 for a 10 week term or a subscription of one month with weekly classes and recordings. Or joint 90min private yoga class for a couple $100 (including take home relaxation recording each).
Term 2 (Mon 19 Apr - 25 June)
Mon, Tues & Thurs classes are a 10 week term ($220). Monday is 9wks $198 and excludes 26 Apr. I will still teach on 14 June (Queen's birthday but if you will be away, take that week off too).
Yoga Nidra - this will be a 9 week term and don't worry if you miss a session as I'll record it for you and send it instead ($135 - 9 week term)
Birthday/Christmas/loved ones Gift vouchers available - please enquire!! It can be a joint session if you want to spend quality time in a shared experience with a parent, sibling, son/daughter, partner, friend.
*please note that I do not reduce the course fee for those who can't make every session as I have sadly found this to be unsustainable due to the limited spots available. I hope you understand. However, you still have the option to make up any missed classes or pay the casual fee which is more and will not guarantee you an on-going regular spot.
TERM 2 2021- taking enrolments / pre-bookings now
(Mon 19 Feb - Fri 25 June 2021)
Private yoga class (in the studio or online as preferred): 90 mins - $100. This can be used as a private family session if preferred but after 3 people the price does go up for each additional person.
Yoga Therapy: $100 per 90mins (see tab to left). Atleast 3 sessions is recommended for the best results so this is a worthwhile option, but this depends on the person and what is to be addressed. It also includes an initial take home plan with instructions and diagrams, any recordings and follow up.
Term 2 2021
Yoga Classes for Term 2 2021 are $22 per 90min class. So $220 for 10 weeks or $198 for 9. You can join late, if there is space, for $22 per class left or if you are attending casually it is
$26 for a casual 90 min class.
Yoga nidra/ meditative 30min relaxation is $15 per class ($135 for a 9 wk term or $18 for a casual).
If joining late in term deduct $22 per lesson missed. If a lesson is missed it can be made up on another day/eve in the same or following week preferably, where there is a spot (please call that morning/evening to enquire about cancellations / spots or notify me in advance so we can find another day that suits that week).
Casuals are accepted if yoga practiced regularly/familiar with practices but space is not guaranteed so please check availability prior to coming ($26 casual for 1.5hrs or if extra class $22)
Payment (cheques payable to Esther Becchio)
BSB 032285 Acc No 568340
Please check availability before paying. Payment must be received to secure your spot.
Cancellations: If you wont make it to class, let me know so you can make it up any other day/evening during the term and I can in turn offer your spot to others waiting for make ups. It is a mutually beneficial system. Alternatively, as long as I'm doing Zoom & it works, I can send you a recording of that class if this works better for you.
Refunds and Reduced Term Fees:
If you are away for part of the term but still wish to book in, you are able to do make ups as long as you are booked in for the term at the time you are making up. You are welcome to try a class out before paying if you are new as bookings are non-refundable.
Sadly, I have found it is not sustainable to reduce the cost of the course for those who can't make every session. For missed classes etc., you can either make up another time or I can send you a recorded class. There are limited spots which are hard to fill once the term starts. There is the alternative option of coming as a casual and paying more and not having the guaranteed on-going spot so please don't book in for the term if this doesn't suit you. You can use your make ups at any time you are booked in to a term.
Privates: If you are scheduled for a private class and are unable to make the appointment, please cancel the day before and I can reschedule the appointment without charge, otherwise there may be a cancellation charge.
Missed classes: There is the opportunity to make-up on another day/eve. Please give me as much warning as possible. This way I can offer cancellations around as make-ups to mutually benefit everyone. Although not always the case, cancellations are often last minute so be ready. As mentioned above, I do not offer reductions to the course fee for missed classes or cancellation however much I'd like to.
Make-up lessons If you miss a lesson and there is the opportunity to make it up. I will do my best to help you do this on any of the other days there are spaces or cancellations. To assist with this, please let me know in advance if you will miss a session so I can offer the spaces to others and yourself for make-up lessons, thank you :-) If you want to make up a lesson please email on any of the other nights you are interested in by 7pm to check if there has been a cancellation (or by 9am if morning) and I will do my best to accommodate. Please try to make up in the same week or the following week if possible. Make ups will be prioritised for those who are making up during the same term and only for those who are enrolled at the time of making up.
Enquire & enrol now for remainder of TERM 2. Enrolments confirmed upon filling out a form (tab to left) and paying the term fee. Please ensure there is a spot before paying.
There are 2 'Concession' spots available per term for those experiencing financial difficulties. These can be used for up to a year if others are waiting to benefit from this offer too.
Currently healthcare plan's are no longer offering rebates for yoga but we are hoping this changes, particularly for therapeutic type yoga like this. When this changes, check whether you are entitled to a medicare rebate as this yoga is Nationally accredited and recognized by Yoga Australia. My membership # is SYTA3813. You will need to send me your healthcare number and referral letter then I will make you up the invoice.
Please inform me of any health conditions upon booking so I can consider your individual requirements.
