YOGA

WELCOME

Our mission is to make
you smile

Welcome to a safe space to explore & create your well-feeling! Our holistic intuitive style is Hatha Yoga based, but open to influences and inspirations across the huge range of styles and variations Yoga has on offer today. While guiding you along the way we provide freedom for creating your own personal approach for your Yoga practice, which also aims at the overall traditional goal of Yoga practice: Freedom for body, mind and spirit! In my view, freedom for body, mind and spirit is the ultimate yoga experience. Come and try our sessions!

Using our intuition with Yoga can greatly help us learn how to listen to our bodies and how to gently adjust postures to meet our individual needs. This will enhance your overall well-feeling, and support you to create a practice that becomes uniquely your own.

YogaIntuition is always encouraging you to find your own rhythm and go at your own pace, hold any postures only as long as it feels right for you and rest any time you like.

Our Christchurch yoga classes are for beginners and every Yogi because we offer Yoga for body and mind! We also adjust continuously and offer variations to match your needs as best as possible. The style is intuitive and gentle with a challenging edge for healthy expansion. Our emphasis is on making the practice comfortable and enjoyable for you! The sessions usually start with a good warm-up, then a sequence of 'Yoga for the Mind' and also provide a guided deep relaxation at the end of our physical part of the session and we round it off with a 10-minute meditation. Our sessions are like a mini-retreat and the in-person classes go for 2 hours.

Give the gift of well-feeling this season ????

Our bodies are our gardens -
our wills are our gardeners.

Testimonials

After many years I just wanted to let you know that your class was my very first yoga class ever! This was a profound experience and I still practise today. (4 years +) Recently I even started a daily commitment to yoga and meditation. Thank you for introducing this amazing practice to me and for being a wonderful teacher. I also don't live in Christchurch anymore but when I visit NZ again, I‘ll make sure to let you know and would love to attend another class. Namaste 🙂

Katrien Paulussen

My husband and I recently completed the 9-week course 'The Five Tibetan Rites & Chakra Balancing' conducted by Maja Moritz. This course not only introduced us to the physical practices of the Tibetan Rites but also their history and the system of Chakras that the Rites are based on with the aim of restoring our well being and harmony.

Maja is a gifted and meticulous teacher: she guided us to experience the beauty of the Tibetan Rites and the Chakras in her classes as well as through the wealth of essential information in the weekly handouts she prepared so we could refer to these in order to refresh the details of the Rites and Chakras.

We have benefitted beyond words from this course and have adopted the Rites as our daily practice: it continues to enrich our lives, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Anne & Bruce

I enjoy yoga, it is very good for me and Maja's style suits me well. To be honest, I am not really the type to do something like yoga and especially to stick with it, so I'm pleasantly surprised with myself!

Jill Plunket

Have been going to yoga with Maja for a few months now and can say unequivocally, it is the best yoga style I have ever done. Maja is positive encouraging and incredibly kind and patient. I have achieved more in these months than in all the years going to Yoga before I started Maja's classes. I would thoroughly recommend her! Namaste.

Penny McCambridge

From the very first class of the beginners course I have enjoyed Maja’s enthusiasm, patience, and love of Yoga. She makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Maja is an excellent teacher. It is definitely one of the most relaxing experiences I have ever felt.

Claudia Engelmann

In the past I have approached yoga a bit like medicine - something I needed to take but not really enjoyable. However, this all changed when I joined Maja's classes. Maja uses an intuitive yoga approach and I loved it. I came each week for my body to be healed, to mediate, to find a calm place, and to be nurtured. At last, I have found a teacher for me.

Cynthia Roberts

I love Maja's beginners yoga class. Maja always makes me feel capable and encourages me to listen to my body and adapt the moves to my ability level whilst still challenging myself. She is an excellent teacher that I would recommend to anybody!

Karen from Sydenham

I love Maja’s classes. They are small enough that Maya gives everyone individual assistance when required. She helps us to understand the yoga poses and principles. She has a very calming voice. I look forward to my yoga with Maja.

Colleen Wadley

Loving yoga with Maja after starting a year ago. I am particularly enjoying the stretching and strengthening that come with the different postures.  Maia is great with her encouragement and correcting which keeps me trying out new postures every week.

A term usually consists of 9 or 10 weeks (there are no classes during school holidays), and you are welcome to join our program at any time (this applies to the Theme Classes, the Yoga courses need to be booked at the start).

1-on-1 Private Yoga, The Ultimate Treat

A 1-on-1 session could be described as a multitude of small individually tailored inspirations, impulses and support for you personally! It prepares the ground for a good start to your yoga practice and helps you to gain insight into your personal needs and how they can be met. It's also an opportunity to get to know your yoga teacher a little better and decide if you're really comfortable with her style of instruction.
A private class is an ideal introduction if yoga is completely new to you. It can also provide optimal support for your personal yoga practice if you're looking for targeted development in some specific direction or simply need a boost for your fitness, recovery, energy and relaxation needs.

1-on-1 is the way Yoga has traditionally been taught. Because of the fact that everyone is a little different, group yoga necessarily always is a compromise. Private instruction is most effective because it is customized guidance and encouragement that provides the best foundation for individual experience and development.

Private sessions also are an excellent preparation in case you plan to become a Yoga teacher - it can be a wonderful mentorship program.

Private sessions are available in English or in German.

MEDITATION

Yoga is a perfect preparation for meditation. And meditation is the heart of yoga! That's why we finish every yoga class with meditation...

Meditation is not only the ideal stress relief, meditation allows us to go beyond the mind and reconnect with our heart and soul. Via meditation, we invite the world of inspiration and intuition into our daily lives, we can experience the miracle of being, and we become able to 'do less and accomplish more', as Deepak Chopra put it.

We have the opportunity to expand our consciousness and to learn about and experience higher states of consciousness. It opens up a world of wonder and unlimited possibilities and at the same time, it is the best tool for creating deep inner peace.

YogaIntuition offers a 9-week Meditation Course, a 4-week course in Primordial Sound Meditation, and regular Meditation on Sundays. All of this is available free of charge, to make sure that money is not a barrier to learning all this precious knowledge. However, we do ask for voluntary contributions if it is possible for you and you are happy to support us.
