Woman practicing a yoga pose with Go Girl Timaru

Spring is the ideal time to rejuvenate your body and mind with Yoga. Let’s give our bodies the chance to recover from the wintertime pause with Yoga!

Yoga in Timaru is a popular activity for both men and women, and for our yoga classes, men are more than welcome to attend. Yoga is well known for reducing stress, improving mobility, and regulating emotions. Yoga is a form of relaxation and a chance to show yourself and your body kindness.

Ideally, Yoga is a practice to be done on a regular basis for the initial stages of your yoga journey, whether you have practiced yoga before or are entirely new to the yoga life.

However Spring is the ideal time to rejuvenate your body and mind with Yoga. Reset for the year ahead.

For many people, only Hatha Yoga and Asanas are acceptable forms of yoga (postures). At Go Girl Timaru we teach Hatha Yoga. In Sanskrit Hatha means sun(ha) and moon(ta).

Fundamentally, hatha yoga is a process that gets the body ready to handle more energy. The body is the first step in the process, followed by the breath, the mind, and the inner self.

Yoga is also frequently perceived as a form of therapy or an exercise programme for fitness and wellness. Although yoga’s benefits for bodily and mental wellness are inevitable, its main objective is far broader. 

Yoga aims to bring you into harmony with the universe. It is a technology that allows people to acquire the highest possible level of perception and harmony by lining up their personal geometry with the cosmos.

Through the regular practice of a variety of different techniques, such as postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation, yoga cultivates health and welfare (physical, emotional, mental, and social).

Yoga has always been viewed as a technology for inner wellbeing; it does not follow any certain religion, belief system, or group. Regardless of one’s religion, nationality, or culture, everyone who practises yoga diligently can benefit from it.

There are a lot of online classes and videos available, but how can you be sure you are performing a yoga pose properly? When you sign up for our yoga class at Go Girl Timaru, your instructor will demonstrate how to get into each posture and any breathing exercises that can assist you do so.

Our studio, which is conveniently situated in Timaru’s CBD, is a warm and inviting place for both men and women to practise yoga. Learn more about your yoga teacher by clicking here.
