  • Yoga - Thursday Morning Term 1 (10 weeks)
    Thursday, 6 February  2020 - Thursday, 9 April  2020
    9:30 am - 11:00 am

What it is all about?

Relax, recharge and renew with Yoga!

Learn and practice a variety of gentle Yoga techniques designed to help us de-stress, bring balance and good health to all our bodily systems and bring peace and calm to the mind.

Classes are in the Integral Yoga style – a very versatile approach to Yoga that is accessible to everybody and focuses on letting go of competition and ensuring that everyone can feel comfortable to practice in a way that honours their body and suits their personal needs.

Classes suit all levels of fitness and experience, including beginners to Yoga, and are tailored to suit individual needs. Modifications (either more gentle or more physically challenging) will be offered as required.

What will we cover?

Classes will include instruction and practice in:

  • Yoga postures to encourage the body through its full range of natural movement, build flexibility and strength and help to balance and bring good health to all our bodily systems
  • Guided deep relaxation to invite body and mind to profoundly relax, recharge and heal
  • Yoga breathing and meditation techniques to help us energize, cleanse and harmonize all levels of our being and bring peace and calm to the mind.

 

Chitra will offer a wide range of options for how to practice each technique, encouraging everyone to be in the moment, to honour their own bodies and have fun!
