Yoga is best done regularly. As a discipline and ongoing practice, it requires effort and commitment. The habits of modern life keep us busy, ambitious and stressed. Many of us have realized that change, stress, illness or injury can disrupt us at any time, leaving us overwhelmed and powerless in the face of a change. Every day we share in the pursuit of happiness through work, family, educational achievements or recognition from our peers and community. If we neglect the space and time for self-care, our lives can fall out of balance, resulting in illness and disease.
A New Approach with Ancient Roots
In Yoga we practice a new set of habits, consisting of present moment awareness, peace, acceptance, and relaxation. Largely absent from mainstream culture this set of habits creates freedom, space and peace within our own lives and the lives of those we meet and spend time with. With the awareness fixed on the movements during yoga, a union takes place. A connection between mind and body which is the meaning of the word Yoga. A union which extends to our spiritual nature and can lead us to take brave and important steps using our heart as a guide.
Do You Have What it Takes?
If you think you’re not flexible enough for Yoga, you probably aren’t, but that’s the reason to begin in the first place and only part of the point of making a start anyway. If you think you are too busy or to distracted to practice mindfulness and meditation, you probably are, and staying busy will always keep you from making a start.
Any number of reasons to skip or delay things will pop up between now and your first class, but like all worthwhile things, your effort is the first requirement to achieving greater flexibility, stillness and balance through Yoga. So make a comitment now to self-care, personal wellbeing and strength and join the inner journey of healing, restoration and alignment with your Higher Self
Making a Start
If you’re ready to make a commitment to yourself through Yoga, then below is the schedule of classes for Morwell and Mirboo North.
Term 4 Schedule of Classes
Yoga Begin is more than a beginners course in yoga. Even the most advanced yoga calls for us to suspend all our previous knowledge in favor of the infinite wisdom which comes through the present moment. We can only reach this through awareness and the creation of balance where once there was distraction, discomfort, stress and dis-ease, we begin to cultivate flexibility, balance, health, and healing. This is the true essence of yoga and its never to late to begin
General Classes are aimed at those who have just started with yoga and wish to work towards a more regular schedule of practice through their week. Many students maintain attendance to ensure a regular practice in preparation for the beginner or intermediate courses. Get your calendar out and register for a class while places are still available.
