Weekly community classes in Avondale Community House (paid) and New Lynn Community Centre (free)
Victoria runs somatic movement infused contemporary yoga. Susze runs a slow-paced hatha with a focus on stress-relief. Consider doing their stress and anxiety course. You will learn to identify stressors in your body, techniques to calm your mind, mindfulness practice, meditation, different breathing exercises, gentle yoga movements. A manual is included in this course. Or try a sound healing class. Sound healing works on healing the mental and emotional levels to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Balancing and clearing the mind leads to a renewed sense of purpose, well-being, calm, and happiness. For something really special, there are retreats. Begin your morning with a mindfulness meditation and pranayama breathing exercise before moving through a series of gentle movements. A delicious and healthy vegetarian lunch will be served before finishing with a relaxing sound healing live concert. Amazing.
