It’s never too late to start your New Year wellness journey,
We’re more than halfway through the first month of 2019 which means most people’s New Year’s resolutions have fallen by the wayside. But there’s still time to claw it back, and if one of your goals for the year was to get healthier, be it in body, mind or both, then a yoga class is the perfect place to start.
Full Moon Yoga and Meditation
On Sunday (January 20) the people at Cariad Yoga are inviting Yogis of all skill level to harness the power of the full moon with a session of Luna Prana Flow Yoga.
Luna yoga involves traditional flowing postures, which are often held for a longer period of time and includes subtler practices like breath work and meditation. The class will allow those taking part to connect deeply with their mind, body and spirit in order to shed any excess baggage from 2018.
The afternoon will also include a session of meditation, Pranayama (the practice of controlling the breath) and a session of meditative and grounding Yin yoga. Plant-based treats and herbal teas will be provided.
Inversion workshop for beginners
And for those looking to switch things up, Cariad Yoga will also be hosting a session dedicated to mastering inversion yoga poses.
Banish those face-planting fears and learn how to access empowering poses and incorporate them into a regular yoga routine with ease. Participants will learn all the necessary techniques to develop a safe and confident inversion practice, including alignment, proper foundation and the basic principles of going upside down.
Those taking part can expect variations of foundational poses such as down dog, dolphin and side plank, which will help develop the stability and grace required for balancing on the top of the head in headstand and tripod. Arm balance crow pose will also be taught.
