Access clarity of mind, physical balance and open to the possibility of personal transformation. This 6 week course will include postures (asana) led by your breath, breathing practices (pranayama), sound meditation, mindfulness and other techniques designed to nurture mental steadiness and peace of mind.


SUGGESTED READING


COURSE OUTLINE
Each week we will explore a variety of techniques designed to bring about mental clarity, support balance in the body and create a peaceful quality of mind. This is suitable for anyone interested in bringing clarity and stillness to their mind, in particular those who have either attended a Beginner’s Yoga course or any other breath-centred practice. Central to our approach is individualising practices to meet the needs of each person.

  • Mats, blocks and straps are provided, though you are welcome to BYO. For your comfort, we also recommended you bring along a pillow, eye cover and a blanket.
  • Please advise the teacher if you have an injury or health concern.
  • Not suitable for Pregnancy or those with recent/acute injuries.


CLASS ETIQUETTE

  • DO bring your own yoga mat if you can (it’s more hygienic), and treat other’s mats as their own personal space – and PLEASE avoid walking/treading on any except your own.
  • DO practice on an empty stomach. Typically, what happens in yoga and in digestion aren’t a happy match.
  • Eat 90 mins to 3 hours before your practice.
  • Easily digested small snacks (eg. Fruit) may be eaten up to 1 hour before class.
  • DO inform your teacher of any injuries, special conditions, health problems BEFORE the practice.
  • DO stay at home if you’re sick. Spreading your germs around isn’t very friendly – and you’d probably be better off resting anyway.
  • DO modify any poses in order to remain in appropriate/safe range and sensation for YOUR body and YOUR practice.
  • DO wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing (jeans and skirts/dresses don’t work).
  • Layered clothing works well
  • Loose/gaping clothing may reveal more than you think in some poses!
  • DO position yourself in class so you can see and hear the teacher.
  • DO listen to verbal cues provided.
  • DO stay in the room until the class is completed.
  • Leaving before final relaxation is never recommended, and if necessary should be unique not habitual.
  • Leaving during final relaxation is absolutely discouraged, as it is disruptive to your fellow student’s relaxation.
  • DO drink plenty of fluids before and after class – even during if you so desire.
  • DO raise any questions and/or concerns about your practice with your teacher.


PLANNED LEARNING OUTCOMES
By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Perform Simple yoga sequences for strength, fitness, relaxation and release.
  2. Begin to apply a number of simple mindfulness based tools and techniques to relieve stress and calm the mind.

Note: Please complete the WEA Sydney – Student Health Assessment and Class Agreement form and bring to the first session of your class.
