    This weekly yoga and meditation session explores the importance of yoga practice in our daily lives. Yoga means to yoke or unite the body and mind so as to still the mind.

    It provides a gentle introduction to both physical and mental yoga for those interested in or wanting to learn how to calm the mind. It is particularly suited for beginners as it uses a soft and gentle style of yoga.

    Suggested Donation: $10

    Registrations are essential.

She has been a keen yoga student since 1983 and completed various courses through the Satyananda discipline and undertook yoga teacher training through the Australian Yoga Foundation in 2014.

The yoking of Buddhism and Yoga seems to Cathy a perfect cure for many of life’s challenges.
