Yoga and Meditation – Sydney Course

Do you feel tired and stressed? Distracted and unable to focus?

An ancient text describes yoga as “the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind”. Having a quiet mind enables you to be sharper and better able to think clearly.

In this course you will experience how mindful movement, conscious breathing, and relaxation and meditation practices can help achieve this clarity of thought to relax and rejuvenate the body.

Students' health status, fitness and general abilities are considered, and alternative postures are suggested accordingly.

At least 20 minutes in each class is dedicated to breathing, relaxation and meditation practices.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across North and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Carlingford, Eastwood, Chatswood, Mt Druitt, Richmond and many more. Enrol today or Enquire Now!
