Yoga

Yoga is now a recognised form of exercise and is recommended as a way to relax and keep supple by the medical profession.

Aughton Village Hall (the Acorn Room)
Tuesdays
12.45pm – 13.45 pm
  • Teacher:  Craig Sumner
  • Leader: Jean Will - 01695 423952

Yoga includes physical movements and postures, skilled and precise breathing techniques, properly constructed mental concentration and safe and effective relaxation exercises. Each session of Yoga is constructed to contain these elements. Yoga is good for everyone, from the earliest years right through to full maturity and old age. It can be adapted to individual needs.

If you are concerned about whether this is suitable for you, your GP or Practice Nurse are the best people to seek advice from.


Next 10 sessions in 2018

Tuesday February 13 to Tuesday May 1

N.B. There will be no Yoga sessions on Tuesday March 27 & Tuesday April 3 due to Easter break.

There are no vacancies in this group – however – if there is sufficient interest to start up a 2nd Yoga group – I have 2 Yoga teachers who are interested (we already have a waiting list at present of 8 people). Time and venue (probably Aughton Village Hall) are yet to be determined. Also – we would need a coordinator for this new group.

The cost is worked out on the basis of 10 weekly sessions. Unfortunately, we have to pay whether attending all the sessions or not in order to meet expenses. Taster sessions are available at £2.50 a week, and are advisable for those people that are not sure it is for them. The current price is £17 for 10 sessions.

NB. The only requirement is a Yoga mat that can be purchased quite reasonably.  Loose clothing, such as jogging pants and a T-shirt are the most comfortable clothes to wear. Further advice is available by contacting the Coordinator.
