In Term 4 we are offering Mindful Yoga online due to lockdown. All participants will be sent a link in early October. If we are able to resume face to face classes when lockdown ends we will continue to offer the option of joining online for the duration. Hygiene and social distancing precautions will be taken to ensure the health and wellbeing of participants in line with current ACT health advice for COVID-19 when we do meet face to face. Any face to face classes will be at our Dickson venue, The Gathering Place, 4 Bancroft St Dickson.
In the practice of Mindful Yoga we intentionally bring mindful awareness to the body as we move, stretch and breathe.
Participants who have taken an MBSR course will recognize this approach of mindfully attending to the body both in stillness and in movement. Participants new to this way of practicing yoga will discover a way of connecting to the body in a kinder and more conscious manner. All participants will cultivate their ability to attune and attend to wisdom of the body and mobilise their innate potential for growth and healing. Through the poses and stretches as well as using breathing and mindfulness meditation practices, participants will learn to cultivate a deeper, kinder, more resilient and conscious connection with their body and mind.
There will be a strong focus on working compassionately with tension, stress, pain and physical or psychological limitations. Mindful yoga helps us to become more embodied and at home in our body. It combines Hatha (classical) yoga, elements of stretch therapy and mindful movement and is trauma sensitive.
Director of Simply Mindful, Megan Layton, will be your teacher. Megan is also a trained and recognised trauma sensitive yoga teacher and therapist with extensive experience in trauma therapy and somatic movement. She is also a mental health social worker who works with a very broad range of people, from CEO’s to students. She worked for over 15 years with acute trauma (in a torture trauma rehabilitation service) and has a deep interest in helping people to heal and feel at home in their bodies and to grow in vitality and health no matter what challenges they are facing.
