Yin Workshop, ‘Time to be cool’- Sunday 15th December, 11am to1.30pm; Cost $35

 Yin yoga is a safe and suitable practice for beginners and is the perfect compliment for a more active practice.

It gives us time to really feel each asana (pose) by gently deepening into it with awareness and attention with every breath. This in essence is the beginning point for learning how to  become ‘mindful’ about our very busy minds.

Yin works on the fascia tissue (deep layers of connective tissue) and on the meridians/nadi’s (energy lines) within our bodies. In this class we will explore some ‘cooling’ asana.

 Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind. “Patanjali’

 

TYC members. Please put one of these dates in your diary to help cleanup your centre.

Each year we have a cleaning bee where members volunteer some time to give our centre a summer cleanup.

During this upcoming Xmas break, TYC is going to have a spruce up with the yoga room, kitchen, reception area and ceilings all getting a fresh coat of paint. By way of preparation for this all the walls and ceilings will need to be cleaned with sugar soap, the curtains taken down and all the props stacked into the centre of the room or into the toilets. Alongside this we also give the outside area a good cleanup as well.

Because classes don’t finish until 21 December committee has decided to do 2 x cleaning bees leading up to the closure. These dates are:

Saturday 14th December @ 11am-2pm ish

Saturday 21st December @  9.15am -11ish (There will be NO 9:15am class on this day)

Please put one (or both) of these dates into your diary. Bring a bucket, rubber gloves and/or gardening tools

Have you left your mat at TYC?

We need more storage space at TYC -please ensure you take your mat home with you.

The number of mats being left at TYC either by choice, or by mistake, appears to be growing again. TYC takes no responsibility for mats left at the centre and every few months we do a cull of these mats because we do not have enough dedicated storage for them.  Please check that you have not left yours.
