Free your Chi: Spring Yin Yoga Workshop

Free your Chi Spring Yin Yoga workshop

In spring, those aspects of us that have been dormant over the winter months begin to awaken. 

🌸

Just as nature enters a cycle of renewal, growth and expansion—so does the energy within us 

This 2 hour Yin practice will focus on the Liver and Gallbladder Meridians, which support the body’s natural digestive and detoxification functions.

🌱

This practice is all about embracing the opportunity to shed old unwanted layers and making a conscious choice to begin again.

Suitable for all levels

Sunday 15th September, 10am – 12pm @ Nunyara Conference Centre.

Yoga for Seniors: Maintaining Strength, Mobility & Balance

Yoga for Healthy Aging

Movement for Healthy Aging Classes

Yoga for Healthy Aging
Maintain Strength, Mobility & Balance
This class is suitable for older adults who want to proactively manage the challenges of aging, protect themselves from injury, and feel more relaxed and confident. 
Our focus will be to build and maintain strength, mobility and balance in the body whilst calming the nervous  system and steadying the mind, leading to better sleep and improved digestion.

Ten Good Reasons to Practice Yoga

  1. Yoga is for everyone: young or old, male or female, healthy or sick. Yoga can always be adapted to your individual needs, whatever your circumstances.
  2. Even if you are facing many challenges in your life, it is easy to start doing yoga and you will experience instant benefits, such as stress relief. Furthermore, once you begin to practice regularly, yoga will help you live your life with renewed positivity and enthusiasm.
  3. Yoga is safe. When practiced properly (with an awareness of your physical limitations) it is a completely harmless form of exercise.
  4. Yoga needs no special equipment. While there are a few props that might make your practice more comfortable, the only thing you really need in order to do yoga is you.
  5. Yoga both tones the respiratory system and helps you to breathe more fully, deeply and easily (thus increasing your oxygen intake), which in turn, will improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
  6. Yoga improves the efficiency of your body systems, aiding digestion, the assimilation of nutrients and the elimination of toxins.
  7. Yoga improves the quality of your sleep so that, when you wake up, you feel refreshed and full of vitality.
  8. Yoga gives you energy and helps you channel your energy effectively so that you don’t waste it on tension, stress and negativity.
  9. Through practising yoga techniques, you experience a genuine sense of outward tranquillity, which eventually helps you to achieve a deep state of inner peace too.
  10. Yoga is FUN!

WHEN COMING TO YOGA……………………..

  • Wear loose, comfortable & stretchy clothes that enable you to move easily. Remove your watch and any jewellery.
  • Go barefoot – this gives you a sense of close contact with the ground and allows the muscles in your feet to operate freely.
  • It is best to practice on an empty stomach, leave at least 1.5hours after a meal before coming to practice. (If that’s not possible – have something light & easy to digest)
  • A yoga mat is helpful but not essential; you may like to bring a towel or a blanket.
  • Yoga is not supposed to hurt! You must be constantly observant and mindful of how you are feeling during class. If you feel unsettled or exhausted during your practice, perhaps you are pushing yourself too hard. Be a little kinder to yourself.
