Om (Aum) symbol Ranna® Yoga - the Aumgenic™ System is a gentle, flowing, profoundly relaxing yet refreshing movement system that unifies principles from Polarity Yoga - part of Polarity Therapy, Hatha Yoga, subtle rhythms from from Cranio Sacral Therapy, healing from Qi Gong and Tai Chi. It is a proprietary development by Dr Ranna-Lesley Lachlan (PhD, BCPP, RPP, RPE) that blends Indian, Chinese and Western movement and therapeutic systems and adds much more than each one carries on its own. Ranna originally developedher Inter-Dimensional approach to Yoga to provide people with a method of self-help and self-healing through movement, so that her patients would have tools to use between therapy sessions with her. Now, Ranna's Yoga has been a TV series and people have attended classes with Ranna to focus exclusively on relaxation and self-healing through this movement method.

Clothing: DO: Wear comfortable, elastic waisted long pants and a loose or supple top that allow freedom of movement. Track suits are fine. Tee shirts and track pants are fine. Yoga outfits or a leotard are fine if you have one, but unnecessary if you don't. DON'T: Shorts, skirts, strapless tops, singlets etc. are not appropriate, and jeans are too heavy and restrictive.

Food: Avoid eatinganything heavy for a minimum of 1.5 - 2 hours prior to class. If you hvae medical reasons - e.g. diabetes or low blood sugar, a small snack appropriate to your metabolism would be fine but remember that it is extremely uncomfortable to do some of the movements with a full stomach.

Evening Yoga is an energy cycle that is designed as a pick me up and de-stresser, to help you first unwind then move into very deep relaxation.
Morning Yoga is a different energy cycle that is designed to first relax you and "clear the cobwebs", then rejuvenate you and raise your energy levels.
"Drop ins" cannot be acccommodated. This is to ensure continuity for existing participants.


Two people $65.00 per person per hour.
Three people $50.00 per person per hour.
Special category: A one-person private class or series of one-person private classes is tailor-made to your specific health situation and life intentions. Since Dr Lachlan will use all her skills as a Board Certified practitioner to assist you through developing a movement series specifically for your individual situation, this constitutes a Therapy Consultation with Dr Lachlan so attracts a full consultation fee as a private therapy session: $100.00.


If a Yoga series is cancelled by 6th Dimension™, you will be refunded your unused portion of fees.

If you confirm your registration and do not attend any or all of the classes, a place has been held for you ahead of others who also would like to attend, so fees are non-refundable.

6th Dimension™ reserves the right to postpone or interrupt continuation of a class series for legitimate reasons affecting 6th Dimension™. Continuing classes will be resumed at the earliest possible date.

Video Clip - Ranna Is...

Dr Ranna® -Lesley Lachlan (PhD, BCPP, RPP, RPE, DFA, Grad. D. Mat Anth., Cert Ministry) first became involved in Yoga at age 15 and in Tai Chi in 1978. She is a qualified Tai Chi instructor (black belt/ 8th degree, Montaigue School of Tai Chi & Pakua, 1986) and a registered Polarity Therapy Specialist - inclusive of certification in Polarity Yoga, a Registered Polarity Educator, and a Board Certified Polarity Therapist. She has also trained in Visionary Cranio-Sacral Therapy.

Ranna has trained with numerous inspiring movement and healing teachers including Perry-Keene, Su, Chapman, Garbett, Montaigue, and Khalsa who each communicated their knowledge with unstinting generosity and the attitude of "now go out and share this with others".

Ranna Lachlan is the developer of Rana® Yoga™ - an Inter-Dimensional "Yoga" PlusTM approach. This encompasses subtle, soothing movements that are a transformative, spiritually based, bio-intelligent blend of intuitive information from inter-dimensional sources. This blend includes healing movements from Polarity Yoga and Polarity Therapy, Traditional Hatha Yoga, Cranio-Sacral knowledge, Tai Chi and Qi Gong healing principles, and guided information to integrate new frequencies coming in through the shifts in planetary consciousness occurring now... energy medicine for the self.

This innovation incorporates her TYS - TaiYoShinTM movement form which she developed in 1989 and 1990 while living in Tokyo, also blending Tai Chi, yoga, chiropractic, and aerobic movement. Her PhD work, completed in Australia in 1995, is a holistic, inter-disciplinary study of Asian and Western arts, music, and spirituality. She is also a professional contemporary artist who has exhibited in Australia, Japan, Europe, and the United States. She plays three Asian musical instruments and one Western instrument, and music that she has composed herself has been a signature element of her work since 1984. Approaching her movement work with knowledge from research in ethnomusicology as part of her doctorate, the "right" cross-cultural or ambient music has always been a part of her classes, especially that which can influence the nervous system in positive and therapeutic ways.
