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.

Please check the website on a weekly basis for updates, as some weeks yoga classes may be moved online or cancelled when the Library’s hall is hired out for events. We announce such occurances with a week’s notice given on the yoga page.
If you are planning to attend via Zoom (when the Zoom classes are offered) you will have to register before Thursday 4pm so our admins can send you the Zoom link. The Library is not staffed from Friday to Monday (inclusive).
About the facilitator
Cathy Sutcliffe has been a TAFE teacher for 27 years and worked extensively with refugees and asylum seekers with targeted courses to enable them to progress with work and study. 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. Cathy has been teaching yoga through the Buddhist Library since 2008. She loves sharing this relaxed Hatha Yoga class in the special space that the Buddhist Library provides – very conducive to relaxation and meditation. The yoking of Buddhism and Yoga seems to Cathy a perfect cure for many of life’s challenges.
