Yoga for Beginners
Date: 19 January 2012 for 11 weeks
Yoga is a very old tradition which has much to offer in today’s lifestyle, helping us to feel more peaceful in a chaotic world. It helps harmonise and balance the mind, body and emotions through using postures, breath and relaxation techniques.
Yoga develops a stronger and more flexible body which can benefit many specific ailments. Relaxation is so important for health and well being as it relieves the anxieties and frustrations of a stressful lifestyle. Yoga is for everyone – just go at one’s own pace. Those who practise yoga are advised to wear loose clothing and bring a blanket or sleeping bag. NB It is advisable that expectant mothers wait until after the 12th week of pregnancy.

Heather sees the practice of yoga as a tool to help individuals develop their own self-awareness, enabling them to feel more in control, therefore leading to a more balanced and fulfilling life.
