Week-end YOGA workshop with Jenni Dall, March 2-4 2013

Sat 2 March 4pm-6pm
Sun 3 March 10am-12pm    &    4pm-6pm 
Mon 4 March 7am-9am  < optional extra session*
When we practice yoga morning and evening, we are able to find a rhythm within ourselves that resonates with the cycles of the natural world: in the morning we are fresh and gearing up for the day; in the evening we are winding down and getting ready to sleep. Most classes are taught to cater to our busy lives rather than our bio-rhythms.

Teens/Energetic Classes in Term 1

The Teens/Energetic class gives an opportunity for young people to work on focus, flexibility, balance, posture, body confidence and strength. Classes  are on Thursdays, 5:00PM - 6:10PM and will begin for term one on February 7.
Figureswild96 The cost is $95- for the 10 week term (up to April 11) or $14-/class casual for high-school, university or Tafe students. The class will be suitable for ages 13 and up (to around 25). The class will work equally well getting 'non-sporty' people active as it will for refining the body skills of keen sports people. For more information please call or email Johnny
If you wish to trial a class before the term begins please come along to a Thursday at 6:30PM or Wednesday or Saturday at 10AM. These 'general' classes are a bit slower paced and more detailed than the Teens/Energetic class but will give you an idea of what to expect.
