About the Event

hat it is all about?

Yoga for Seniors and Chronic Conditions is a series of gentle, restorative classes that can help boost energy and reduce pain, through the pillars of yoga practice – postures, breath work, meditation and mindfulness.

Classes are designed for anyone experiencing aches and pains, chronic health challenges including long covid, fatigue and/or mobility issues, or simply wanting a gentle nurturing practice. They are suitable for both beginners and seasoned Yoga practitioners of all abilities, and our tutor Sarah will modify the class to your individual needs. Most exercises will be performed in a chair.

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.

Classes are best suited to beginners however all levels of experience with Yoga are welcome.

Sarah will offer options for how to practice each technique, including chair versions if getting up and down from the floor is tricky for you, encouraging everyone to be in the moment, to honour their own bodies, all the while having fun!

Note: Please confirm with your doctor that it is safe for you to attend a gentle yoga class before enrolling.

Who will be teaching?

Sarah will be teaching Hatha Yoga on a Monday morning for three weeks whilst Chitra, the class regular yoga teacher, is on holiday.

After moving back to the Macedon Ranges in 2016, the opportunity to practice Yoga, on a personal level, unfolded for Sarah. Having passionately practiced Pilates for years, Sarah embraced the mat and Yoga teachings with a new curiosity, and quickly found that it offered a unique and calming practice, whilst providing a beautiful sense of coming home.

In 2021, having worked in the health industry for 14 years, Sarah completed the 200hr 'Teaching Training: Beginning Level' though the Integral Yoga Academy, as she felt there is much to gain from regularly practicing such a holistic offering. Sarah has since completed the Level 1 Kids Yoga Training with Yoga Kids Training Academy, with much appreciation for the fun and creativity such practice invites.

Now affiliated with Yoga Australia, Sarah is honoured to share space and passion for a practice she believes can strengthen and inspire the mind, body and soul.
