Meditation – starts this Wed. 30th July @ 7.30pm

When meditation has been successfully practiced, one attains the realisation of the presence of one’s own consciousness, the various distractions and obstacles are no longer present (YS 1:29-32 – Gerald James Larson)

MEDITATION – WEDNESDAY 7.30PM, STARTING 30th July

If you are interested in practicing meditation to still the mind, and reduce the emotional triggers that produce stress and anxiety, we will be holding an 8 week series of meditation starting on Wednesday 30th July, at 7.30pm. Over the 8 week series you will  learn practical meditation skills, integrating breath, self-awareness, concentration and relaxation.

Meditation allows us to take time to find peace, calm and insight in the inner space of being, which creates more balanced energy to cope with the demands of a busy life. Drop-ins are welcome, however, the benefits of meditation come with making a regular time for practice.

This class is free to people who are signed up to come to India in our forthcoming trip – See Yoga Retreats!

Yoga for Round the Bays runners

Runners… are you preparing for Round the Bays?

Yoga and running may seem poles apart, but if you don’t stretch properly you can develop a number of serious biomechanical issues:

  • Tight hamstrings and calves lead to back pain
  • Tight hipflexors, put strain on the sacroilliac joint
  • Tight upper body can restrict O2 uptake, and reduces overall performance
  • Tight muscles, increase the chance of serious muscle pulls and tears whilst running along the route

Our Runners workshop on Saturday 9th Feb at 9.30am can help runners learn how to stretch effectively. We will look at basic biomechanics, what muscles are used and how to stretch them.

For more information, and to book in, email: sadhanayoganz@gmail.com or call (04) 387 7213 and leave a message with a landline for a call back.

It is a myth that runners don’t need to stretch. Long muscles mean great performance, less stiffness and less risk of injury.
