Bendigo Yoga Classes
Group Yoga Classes
Regular Yoga classes are a great way to learn the fundamentals of Yoga, build fitness and strength, lower stress, and to meet like minded people. It is a little bit of time just for you to explore Yoga and your re-connection to your body, mind and breath. When you couple that with a regular home pratice, things start to change.
Donna offers private sessions either ongoing or as a one off to help you establish a regular practice or to work on a particular aspect of your practice Private classes are for one hour. $60 for one person, $90 for two, $120 for three.
The gentle yoga classes are open to all students and focus on nurturing, healing and rejuvenating the body and mind. They include gentle movements, breathing, relaxation and some meditation. The classes help to release built up stress and tension, and can be a great option for those returning to practice from injury or those just wanting to take some quiet gentle time for themselves. Relaxation pose is a practice of deep relaxation where you are systematically guided to release the body and mind. A great way to end a class.
The general class is hatha based class and is suitable for most students. It includes postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), relaxation and can include meditation. The general class offers various levels of postures to cater for the variety of students. Bendigo Yoga recommends the gentle class for people who have not tried Yoga before.
Deep Rest (Restorative Yoga)
A regular practice of Deep Rest can be a fabulous way to lower stress when you feel overwhelmed, and as a preventive medicine. It changes the balance of the nervous system and reduces muslce tension. The Deep Rest poses bring a sense of profound relaxation by letting the props hold you in the yoga poses. It helps you breathe more deeply, slowly and regularly. All poses are restful, since most are lying down and it requires so little effort to stay in the pose. We conclude with a yoga nidra which not just relaxes the body and mind but also the nervous system and the subconscious mind in a systematic fashion.
