Healing Yoga

Joan Coots, a yoga teacher here in Sunbury, has developed this gentle Healing Yoga class that will be tailored to individual needs so that everyone feels comfortable yet moderately challenged. This class is suitable for both men and women who are experiencing any of these matters:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • joint and inflammation issues
  • loss of muscle strength or balance
  • the effects of disease or illness
  • cognitive impairment
  • chronic pain
  • rehabilitation from surgery
  • feelings of loneliness or disconnection from self and others
  • optimal health and happiness!

Classes will begin by sitting in chairs to practise: regulation of the breath, meditation techniques and warm up stretches as well as discussions on basic health topics for emotional and physical wellbeing. They will then move on to floor work with standing postures and balances with the aid of a chair if needed.

If you have a yoga mat, feel free to bring it along however Joan will have spare mats on hand. Wear comfortable clothes so that you can move and stretch unhindered and bring a water bottle. Please eat only a light meal before coming to yoga and, if possible, eat an hour or two before the class. It’s best to practise without a heavy meal in your stomach.

Monthly classes in Term 1 2020 are scheduled for these Thursdays: February 6th & 13th and March 5th & 12th.
