Did you know that an all-ages yoga session happens every Friday at the Tarragindi Recreation Reserve behind Bruno’s Cafe on Laura Street? If you haven’t tried this community exercise, you still have heaps of chances to join one session and see if it fits what you need.
The free yoga classes, which will run until the 17th of September 2021, takes place from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Bookings are not required for this session but if you do attend, don’t forget to bring your own yoga mat so you can do the movements in comfort.
Yoga sessions in the park have other benefits, aside from physical fitness. This outdoor exercise may boost a person’s happy hormones and awareness because the participants are surrounded by natural scenery.
People who spend at least an hour of exercise surrounded by nature can increase the benefits of meditation. Whilst it might seem awkward to do yoga in the park, at first, the power of nature actually makes people more motivated to take deeper breaths and relax, thus maximising the benefits of the session.
Doing yoga in the park also increases a person’s alertness and focus, so participants are able to improve their balance and stability whilst doing the yoga positions. Besides, it makes sense to do actual Sun Salutations under the sun and soak in all that natural vitamin D.
