New Year Intentions

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!

A little bit late, now that its half way through January already!

 

Have you made a new year intention to start yoga? Re-start yoga? Practice yoga regularly? Practice more yoga? To help make this an affordable reality, so you can keep going all year, we offer at our Richmond centre:

  • Beginners Course starting Thursday 13 Feb, 7.30pm details > here
  • Discount Class Passes ( > here ) that can be used at all casual classes 
  • Community Class every Monday 10am for just $5 

Even though our costs have increased, the term sessions at Doncaster, Ivanhoe & Pascoe Vale prices have remained the same! 

 

While the reasons for practicing yoga vary, one thing for sure is that it has an accumulative effect, its not a quick fix. A regular practice, however that looks for you, is ideal. If you've lapsed, don't worry, each new day offers the same opportunity for a fresh start. Keep going, its worth it because the benefits are all encompassing for our total health & wellbeing.

 

When we talk about YOGA we mean we are practicing

  • ASANAS (the physical postures / exercises)
  • PRANAYAM (breathing exercises)
  • RELAXATION
  • MEDITATION

Yoga is much more that even this, but these 4 practices are included in our classes and generally what we have in mind when we talk about practicing Yoga.
