Prenatal Yoga – 10 Week Course with Monica Anderson

Prenatal Yoga Teacher - Monica AndersonJoin experienced prenatal yoga teacher Monica Anderson for a 10-week prenatal yoga course, running from Monday 28 April to 30 June.

This course is dedicated to providing holistic support to pregnant women, through yoga practice, breath-work, and informative sessions on birth preparation and lateral services, such as doula support and courses that are good to know such as calm birth, and preparing for your first six weeks with bub.

Practising yoga throughout your pregnancy is a wonderful gift that you give to yourself and your unborn baby. Prenatal yoga will help you be in the best possible shape for birth and beyond! From teaching experience, you will also enjoy faster muscle recovery after birth.

Benefits you will enjoy are on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. As you practise regularly you will increase your strength, stamina and flexibility. You’ll also find that your yoga helps you deal more effectively with stress and anxiety, as well as appreciating the quiet time you set aside for your yoga practice as a sanctuary for you to connect with the baby growing inside you.

Your body is influenced by the hormone ‘relaxin’ during pregnancy which softens the joints and ligaments in the pelvis and spine. Work to a point where you are getting a gentle and effective stretch rather than aiming to drastically improve your flexibility during this time.

The cost is $165 for 10 sessions. Sign up by 21 April and get 10% off.

Join guest teacher Marcus Edwardes – Ashtanga Yoga, Friday 11 April @ 5:45PM @ CYS

We are excited to have amazing Ashtanga Yoga guest teacher, Marcus Edwardes teaching at CYS this Friday, 11 April at 5:45pm.  Don’t miss this opportunity, sign-up online HERE.

Marcus first came to yoga for flexibility and believes in its ability to transform and heal. He sees yoga as a tool that helps us through the cycle of life (samsara). As well as practicing yoga daily, this year, he will make another trip to India and embark on a wild surfing adventure in Indonesia.  He continues to study yoga with trips to India and New York having been influenced in the Ashtanga and Jivamukti yoga traditions. He is currently studying physiotherapy at the University of Canberra (and is loving it!) and ultimately aims to serve others by integrating Western science with Eastern philosophy. When not studying he loves to practice Asthanga yoga, meditate, surf, eat anything vegan and is known to consume ridiculous amounts of green smoothies. Practice, practice, practice and all is coming.

Marcus has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. He loves the beauty, grace and tradition of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga as taught by Indian yoga master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and has had the privilege to study in Mysore, India.  Marcus is a Level 1 Yoga Teacher and was the first ACT representative for Yoga Australia. He has completed teacher training on the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series with David Swenson.  And is also a certified Jivamukti yoga teacher having studied with Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York.

His classes follow traditional yogic teachings focusing on regular practice (abhyasa), mediation (dhyana), study of ancient scriptures (sastra), strength, poise and steadiness in postures and connection to the earth (sthira sukham asanam). He is sincerely thankful to all his teachers especially R. Sharath Jois, Dr M.A. Jayashree, Professor Narasimha, Paul Frechtling, Mark Robberds, Eileen Hall, Ruth Lauer-Manenti and his first teacher Carmela Lacey.

Join us on the mat this Friday, 11 April @ 5:45PM.
