About the Event
What it is all about?
This January 2024, Chitra is offering three discreet sessions of yoga to help you de-stress, bring balance and good health through the summer holidays!
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 suites their personal needs. Classes are suitable for both beginners and seasoned Yoga practitioners of all abilities.
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!
Who will be teaching?
Chitra Stern has been teaching Yoga since 1989, in Australia, India and the USA. She has trained with the Gita School of Yoga in Melbourne and with Integral Yoga in the USA, and is certified to teach Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced and Pre-natal/post partum Integral Yoga Hatha classes. She has also completed Integral Yoga Stress Management Teacher Training and has trained with Amy Weintraub, completing level 1 and 2 Yoga for Depression teacher trainings. Chitra is also a Level 1 Integral Yoga teacher trainer. Her focus in Yoga is on opening to our natural inner peace, freedom and joy by letting go of competition, accepting and enjoying ourselves as we are, being present in the moment and having fun!
Classes are suited to all levels of experience with Yoga and are tailored to suit varying needs and abilities. Sessions include Yoga asana (postures), Yoga nidra (guided deep relaxation), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation, ending with peace chants where we can offer the benefits of our practice out into the world.
