Beginners Yoga 6 Week Courses 2017
"I recently started the Yoga for Beginners class and found the experience to be very relaxing and comfortable. Our Yoga instructor was amazing, and I like the subtle hands on adjustment. It gave me assurance knowing that I was learning the technique correctly. The small classes were great as I found it less intimidating to try out a new activity on my own. I feel that I benefited more from a smaller group as opposed to larger groups and it was great not feeling ignored because some people might be a bit better. It has been a long time since I have been able to go home feeling absolutely relaxed. I have since recommended the Wellness Centre to friends, family and work colleagues. Thank you" ... Sarah

What are the benefits?
What makes yoga different from other exercise programs is that it has been proven to develop a strong connection between the body, breath and mind. This is particularly helpful for the following people:
- Those experiencing stress or anxiety benefit from practicing long and smooth yoga breathing, which has been shown to normalise the nervous system.
- Chronic disease sufferers, such as those with cancer benefit from significantly lower levels of pain, improved levels of relaxation and increased energy.
- Those with joint conditions such as arthritis can benefit from lower pain levels and improved joint movement.
- School & uni students can benefit from improvements in mental ability and longer attention spans.
- Older people benefit from the increase in strength and balance, lower levels of depression and improved daytime functioning, improved mental & emotional states and better quality sleep.
Yoga is an ancient science that has now been validated by evidence based research and controlled scientific studies.
Feedback from our students is that they leave class deeply relaxed and "feel amazing".
Yoga has changed the lives of millions of people for the better, why not find out how you can be one of them?
