Yoga for Fitness & Wellbeing - tips and exercises for home
Sat 5 October 2019: 11am-1pm at Beechwood Club, Fishponds
Sometimes feel stiff and achy?
Life often feels busy/stressful?
Feel frazzled at the end of the week?
Want to feel more physically fit and stronger?
Want to be calmer more often?
Want to feel you have more energy and focus?
What if you could change that and bring a sense of balance, more calm and wellbeing into your home?
Thought of doing yoga or some relaxation/mindfulness at home but not sure what to do or how to do it?
We spend much of our time in a state of busy-ness, stress or anxiety, rushing from one thing to the next, multitasking and never really stopping to take care of our physical and mental wellbeing which can lead to feeling unwell more often (as your immune system is less able to fight off bugs), prone to injury (as the body is too tight, weak), more likely to feel run-down, irritable, stressed, unhappy etc.
You may go to a gym or do other activities once or twice a week but what do you do when you feel achy/stiff, tired, stressed etc at home? Maybe you don't do anything regularly and feel you need something? Want to know what to do that will help?
In this session I will share the best tips, techniques and effective yoga postures and mindfulness exercises to do at home to help keep you stretched out, feeling fit and strong, get more head-space, feel more calm and positive (and even happier!) more often and be more relaxed whenever you need it.
And all you learn you can fit into your busy life, so you'll get stretches and relaxation exercises you can do no matter how much (or how little!) time you have (so you can even practice whilst waiting for the dinner to cook, on the bus, waiting in a queue or on your walk to work!)
So invest in yourself and see how much better you'll feel more often.
£20 if booked and paid for by 5 August (usual price £25).
Places limited to ensure everyone gets individual attention, guidance and advice.
