What we teach

At Balanced Practice, we teach the ancient art of yoga in a calm, safe and inclusive space. You’ll find our classes are suitable for people of different ages, shapes and interests.

You will learn to practice yoga responsively, in harmony with how you feel from day to day, moment to moment, in compassionate, ever deepening connection with yourself and the world. Each practice is modified to meet the needs of the students in that specific class. Our teachers welcome beginners to Yoga.

We can help you choose your first class, or assist you with individual sessions with one of our highly experienced teachers.
So if you’re new to yoga, get in touch with us.



Liz Bennett Physio


Physiotherapist for over 20 years, Senior Yoga Teacher and qualified Yoga Therapist, Liz Bennett
is founder and owner of Balanced Practice Yoga.
Liz’s classes bring people together to practice a peaceful and expansive inner experience of breath, body and mind, cultivating vibrant mental and physical health.

Liz’s approach reflects many years of studying with teachers in the lineage of Sri TKV Krishnamacharya, Simon Borg Oliver and Bianca Machliss of Yoga Synergy, Michael De Manincor of Yoga Institute Sydney, Ganesh Mohan of Svastha Yoga, Leslie Kaminoff, and Saraswasthi Vasudhevan. Expect to learn more about the subtlety of your body and to move and feel better.

As a physiotherapist, Liz explores functional movement, Pilates and therapeutics for inspiration. Liz’s classes take into account the needs that arise from our modern lives, and the imbalances that our habits can cause in our musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

“The innate capacity to reach a deeper sense of connection to ourselves is within every human being.”


Balanced Practice Yoga are open level classes which give students the tools to evolve not only their asana practice but to cultivate insight into the heart of the yoga tradition.

Rather than a set system, Balanced Practice is an interweaving of ancient and modern perspectives which helps to keep the body and mind fluid and adaptable to change.

Balanced Practice Yoga classes are intelligent, innovative classes that are powerful and therapeutic, blending yogic philosophy and insight into the energetic body with sequences that help you gain mobility and functional strength.

You’ll move and feel better and develop a more compassionate relationship with yourself.


Yoga students wishing to advance their yoga practice and deepen their understanding of their body and working with physical asanas ( poses) and breath ( pranayama ) can benefit from training with a teacher who has been practising for over 20 years and teaching yoga anatomy for over a decade.

You can develop a progressive personal practice with Liz’s guidance and support.

Liz can create a sequence for you that is physiotherapy informed, therapeutic and goal oriented, varying your postures so that you can practice and progress safely and regain functional, pain-free movement.

Some of the conditions that can be assisted through therapeutic yoga

Lower back pain
Neck pain
Joint surgeries

Liz is available at TherapyWorks Newport on Monday and Thursday afternoons, Saturday mornings and home visits by appointment.
