Children and teenage Yoga classes are both based on exploring and connecting to all around us and our inner selves. These workshops will explore why Yoga, in recent times, has become so popular; such as:-
(1) How does Yoga benefit the body and mind, helping us to find simple ways to rebalance in our busy everyday lives.
(2) What different postures do for us and how the body works better from a simple Yoga practice.
(3) How to breathe better and why we should.
(4) How to tell when we are stressed and what we can do to reduce this stress.
This Saturday, these workshops will be led by M/s Marie Mills, latter a ‘Stress Reduction Specialist’ and ‘Yoga Practitioner’ here in Thurles and the upcoming workshops will cover topics such as; mindfulness, meditation, relaxation, simple visualisations, mind mapping and creative bursts.
Reading will also comes alive with Yoga and is a highlight at these workshops, with those attending using and creating various postures to bring the story alive. Yoga Thurles always remind students, “if it’s not fun…it’s not Yoga”.
