Yoga is an ancient movement meditation practice that can assist in developing mindfulness skills, a feeling of calm and more control over your emotions and reactions. It is a powerful tool that can assist in improving focus and thinking more clearly.
Slow, mindful yoga is not the same thing as strong, physical exercise yoga – it is a different practice with different goals. The goal of slow, mindful yoga is building awareness, self-regulating the nervous system, and deepening self-understanding.
The Mindful Yoga class, taught by counsellor and qualified Yoga teacher Maureen is open to any student or staff at Flinders University who would like to practice a gentle style of movement meditation. It is suitable for people of all ages, physical abilities and fitness levels. There is a specific focus on experiential practice of mindfulness skills, relaxation skills and gentle movements, suitable for stress management.
