Ki Yoga Classes
Amanda Durkin, Ki Yoga teacher from the Blue Mountains is offering Ki Yoga classes in Hartley on Thursday mornings from 9.30 to 10.45 during school terms.
Ki yoga is a dynamic, healing and fun form of yoga that changes with the seasons. It combines Japanese and Chinese healing arts with the postures and teachings of hatha yoga. Each season ki yoga will bring focus to a different part of the body and its related meridians (as used in acupuncture and shiatsu), to keep us balanced, strong and connected to our environment.?This yoga is generally suited to most levels of fitness.
Less like a traditional yoga class, and more like a movement class. These classes are aimed at keeping your body moving in all directions.
Ki Yoga works with the seasons, so for the coming Spring we will be twisting the body and stretching our sides, to help shake off the tightness and stiffness from a cold Winter.
Even if you have never tried yoga before, you are welcome to come along and join us. First class is free as a trial.
Next term starts Thursday 12th January, 2017 @ 9.30am
Mid Hartley Rd at the Old School Hall.
Cost – 4 class pass is $65
Any enquiries please don’t hesitate to call or text Amanda on 0403 243 350, or email email@example.com

Tai Chi can be many things for different people – regular practice will bring better health and wellness. Tai Chi is regarded as one of the most effective exercises for health of mind and body. Its slow, gentle and tranquil movements are designed to improve mobility, suppleness and mental alertness. It can also be a meditation and be spiritually beneficial.
