Yoga class works out the aches

Hatha Yoga helps keep away aches and pains by keeping the body limber. The Ashcroft club meets three times per week.

There is a thriving yoga class three times a week in Ashcroft. The program has been continuous for approximately 12 years. Many capable women have volunteered their time and energy over the years to keep yoga happening in our community. Our current instructors are Marijke Stott and Val Teshima.

We practice Hatha Yoga, involving a series of movements and postures intended to align muscle and bone. Gentle stretching and elongating of the spine can work out many annoying aches and pains we acquire throughout our lives.

There are mental and spiritual benefits as well when we integrate body breath and mind, taking your attention away from the chaos of daily living.

The overall goal is to enhance and improve on inner and physical development by releasing the positive energy in our bodies, affecting all aspects of our life.

All our participants are of various abilities and ages. We don’t compete with anyone else in the room, but do only what we are capable of that day. Classes are held in a gentle, helpful and non judgemental atmosphere.

It is a gift to yourself.

If you are interested in personal as well as community Wellness, come and join us Monday 7 pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10 am at the Ashcroft Community Hall.  Drop in $3
