Description

Gentle Hatha Yoga for mature students

Term 2 Thursdays, 4th May - 6th July 2017 (6.15 pm -7.30 pm)

Join in and improve your flexibility, balance and joint mobility. Increase your strength and enhance your vitality, mental sharpness and clarity. Let go off pain and have a deeper, restful sleep.

This class has been specifically designed for the needs of mature students over 40+, 50+.

The (75 minutes) class begins with relaxation, followed by gentle warm up, slow Hatha yoga sequence exploring the asanas and breath and concludes with 10-15 minutes of yogic sleep (iRest Yoga Nidra- mindfulness meditation/deep relaxation). Each week we will explore one asana (yogic posture) in detail. We will look at the history and meaning of the pose, its emotional, mental and physical benefits. We will explore variations and proper alignment in depth so that at the end of the term you will feel like you’ve done a yoga teacher training without doing one :) We will be covering different poses in each term (4 terms per year - see below).

This class is a gentle Hatha yoga class and is suitable for students over 40+. Men and women are welcome. We will have fun practising yoga in a small group with maximum ten (10) participants to make sure that you will get personal attention and your experience is special and intimate. Variations to poses will be given to cater to various levels of strength and flexibility. We will use yoga props if necessary (e.g. straps, blocks, bolsters etc.) to assist in settling into poses safely and comfortably.

After the first class on the 4th May we will go for dinner together (at Hutt St) so we can get to know each other and practise yoga in a friendly and joyous environment.

If you haven’t done yoga before and would like to try - this is a perfect class for you. It is never too late to start yoga. BYO mat & blanket. If you haven’t got a mat, yoga mats are now readily available in most shops e.g. Amart Short, K-mart, Big W, myer, Lorna Jane etc.

If you prefer to pay via EFT, this option is also available, please contact the organiser for banking details.
