What is a yoga walk and what will we do on the walk?
- While waiting for group to gather we can chat. Before we move off I will explain the theme of the morning.
- We will be cultivating stilling the busy chatter of the mind by not talking for part of the walk but observing all we see, hear, feel and smell. We will find a suitable place to do breathing exercises and stretches. If possible we can sit or lie down, depending on weather and ground, we can try different types of meditation, stretch and relaxation.
- Our aim is to improve our sense of well – being by connecting with the simpler things in life – fresh air, exercise, nature, friendship and our true self.
