Exciting Nia and Yoga Event Coming to the Club on 10th July

Jane Francis, our popular yoga instructor is holding a great workshop at the Club on 10th July at 2:15pm. Exclusively for members, the workshop will explore the five elements of nature with Nia and Yoga.

The places are limited to just twelve members to ensure a really personalised experience during the two and a half hour workshop.

Those taking part will enjoy and introduction to the five elements of nature; earth, water, fire, air and space.  Jane will be delving into the  connection of the elements to  the three Ayurvedic Doshas (Vata / Pitta / Kapha) and the link to our Chakra system.  As part of the experience you will learn how to use movements from Nia and Yoga to bring balance and harmony to our bodies, mind, emotions and spirit.

During the afternoon there will also be a Nia Class which is mindful movement set to soul-stirring music, focussing on the elements and chakras as we move.

The workshop will also conclude with a Yoga class, practicing specific Asanas (poses) relating to each element and Chakra.  During this class, there will the chance to practice a flowing sequence "Salute to the Elements" and class will end with a guided meditation on the elements.
