Seven guided breath and relaxation meditations. Listen to the soothing voice of Tess Hynes as she takes you through seven short daily practices. These guided meditations are designed as a sleep aid or as a short reprieve from a hectic day. Each meditation is 10 minutes in length. Use them when you need that deep mental and emotional rinse and release. Tess’s calming voice is like easing into a warm bath and feeling all of your muscles willingly surrender, allowing everything that was held to be liberated and to be expressed.

The meditations are varied. Some are guided breath exercises, others are a journey of consciousness. We recommend using a set of headphones or listening through speakers rather than directly off of your computer or phone audio for greater depth in sound experience. What is different about this series compared to other guided meditations is that you have the opportunity to practice traditional pranayama or yogic breathing techniques in a way that is relaxing and accessible. You get a chance to experience and enjoy these breathing techniques. They exist for our health, but can often be difficult to follow. With Tess as your guide you will not only get a clarity in instruction, but you get to experience the real nature of these practices.

You have access to the meditations for a 3-month period. Especially with the breath-focused meditations, this 3-month period will allow you to work on building your breath and lung capacity, as well as improving your lung health. Let these meditations be a regular part of your wellness routine.

About the course instructor:

Tess Hynes is based in Australia yet has taught in various locations around the world. She began her yoga teaching journey in 2011 after studying her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Ubud, Bali. She has completed numerous yogic studies since, including 200hrs of Yin Yoga. The still and deep practice of Yin Yoga has become her passion. Tess values a practice that invites pranayama and meditation as critical tools to cultivating self awareness and shifting energy beyond the asana practice in the physical, emotional and mental realms.


Dear friends and community, it wasn’t an easy decision to arrive to but alas, with so many changes happening to the world, reevaluations of 2022 and many decisions to make for the new year, we have decided to close Urban Yogis for now. It’s been quite a ride from our humble beginnings in 2013 from a basic pop up group in the Botanic Gardens to a vibrant collective of like-minded yogis invested in their health, connection and nature. It’s bittersweet for us to reminisce the good old times, especially during our pivot through the pandemic. We appreciate everyone who stuck by us through it all - changes to protocols, swabbing, check-ins, safe distancing - you name it! What a time! We’ve grown so much through it and have seen so many of you grow with us as well. There truly is a community of you, so willing to adapt with us through bad weather and ridiculous Covid-measures. For that, we are so grateful. Thank you for supporting us and for being our life-line during an unexpected time of our journey. At the root of Urban Yogis is learning and growing through the spirit of Yoga and Wellness. From immersive experiences like workshops and retreats, our mission was to help people find joy in self-inquiry and practice. We know that you will continue to do so and that makes our journey so worthwhile knowing that we played a small part in that too. Thank you for seeing us, believing us and showing up. We look forward to crossing paths with you in different ways. You can always reach out to Julie (IG: @julieyogatravel), Kathy (IG: @kathygabriel__) and the wonderful teaching team at Urban Yogis independently. For those of you who would like to share the last practice with us, we still have Suntec classes running through January 2023.
