      Healthy Body Image - Yoga and More

      This is a two hour class which focuses on working with people with body image issues. The class runs for four weeks. I encourage you to come to all four sessions, but come to what you can. Society often expects us to measure up to an impossible and unhealthy ideal or to force us into a mould that is not us. This can be damaging to our well being. Some people suffer bullying, and serious mental and physical health effects as a result. The most common group may be people who perceive that they are overweight, but it also affects all kinds of people, including people recovering from illlnesss, people with eating disorders, transgender people, and anyone who has difficulty with self acceptance. Although this extended class is yoga based, our hope is that a supportive community will form to support and encourage each other. Yoga encourages mental and physical resilience, the integration of mind and body, connection, self acceptance, and healthy self love. From the classes you will also learn positive meditation and relaxation techniques in a safe and supportive environment. Our dedicated yoga studio is almost surrounded by beautiful acres of wetlands, nature reserves and water. Sit quietly close to nature, breathe deeply during your yoga practice surrounded by magnificent trees, and enjoy the journey. The level of yoga will be from complete beginners to intermediate level. We welcome any size, any shape, any gender, any age (over 18 - under 18 with participating parent). But please let us know if you have any limitations at the time of booking.  Please bring: a raincoat, comfortable clothes, yoga mat, a water bottle, and a blanket or towel. Please note that numbers are limited and that bookings are essential. Please note that the price is per class. The retreat location is in the Wattle Downs, Manurewa area (the address will be supplied upon confirmation of your booking).
