Mental Health Week

10Oct2021

Mental Health is a big deal and so are you! Join us for some relaxing group fitness classes and a special pop-up wellness lounge from Mon 11 Oct.

It’s normal to experience anxiety & stress resulting from that pest of a pandemic. With lockdowns, social distancing requirements, travel restrictions, and the constantly changing position we find ourselves in… it’s a stressful beast to tackle. Which is why prioritising our mental health and wellbeing is more important than ever.
 
Good mental health is. when we can cope with the stressors of our daily lives, participate in loving relationships, contribute to our community, and work towards our goals. EVERYONE has mental health. And we can all benefit from looking after our own mental health.
 
We’d like to support our members in their mental health journey as best we can, so from Monday 11 October to Friday 15 October we’ll be putting on some special, cool-calm-collected group fitness classes, as well as a pop-up wellness lounge with some relaxing herbal tea, colouring in books and raw balls.
 
And of course, some cuddly furry friends will be roaming the centre Monday 11 October between 9:30am to 10:30am.
 
Please PLEASE, if you’re struggling or just need a little extra support, reach out to us or trusted friends, family, or your GP.

Monday 11 October, 7:30pm 

If you experience an aching body, fatigue, digestive problems, nervousness or problems sleeping this class might be just the thing for you.

Stef will guide you through postures which focus on assisting recovery from adrenal fatigue and support the release of tension in the adrenal glands

Healing Power of Sound
Monday 11 October, 12 noon
Yoga Nidra (guided meditation) and the healing sounds of the solfeggio chimes. Terry and Bec will help you retune your mind and body, shift old energy and allow yourself to be guided to a place of healing and relaxation.

Feel free to bring a pillow and a blanket for comfort throughout this relaxing session.
Healing Power of Drum Wednesday 13 October, 8:40am Yoga combined with Indian Healing Rhythms. Start your day with the positive rising energy of the drums and Tibetan bowls, combined with Yoga postures. Stef will assist you in “letting go” of stress and anxiety. 
Healing Power of Slowing Down Wednesday 13 October, 6:30pm This slow restful restorative session is a meditative form of yoga that will allow you to focus on your breath while releasing tension in your body, with ease and without strain. Tracy will guide you through this emotionally relaxing class.
Healing Power of Yoga Nidra Friday 15 October, 7:05pm Allow Shatish and his Tibetan bowl to take you on a journey to full body relaxation which cultivates multiple levels of well-being within. Yoga Nidra comes from the Indian yoga tradition - Nidra meaning “sleep” or “changing states of consciousness.”  It's a lying down meditation that uses the whole body as a focus of awareness.

Feel free to bring a pillow and a blanket for comfort throughout this relaxing session. 

Get moving!

Even if you’re not suffering from a mental health problem, regular physical activity can still offer a welcome boost to your mood, outlook, and mental well-being.

Exercise can help provide:

Sharper memory and thinking. The same endorphins that make you feel better also help you concentrate and feel mentally sharp for tasks at hand. Exercise also stimulates the growth of new brain cells and helps prevent age-related decline.

Higher self-esteem. Regular activity is an investment in your mind, body, and soul. When it becomes habit, it can foster your sense of self-worth and make you feel strong and powerful. You’ll feel better about your appearance and, by meeting even small exercise goals, you’ll feel a sense of achievement.

Better sleep. Even short bursts of exercise in the morning or afternoon can help regulate your sleep patterns. If you prefer to exercise at night, relaxing exercises such as yoga or gentle stretching can help promote sleep.

More energy. Increasing your heart rate several times a week will give you more get-up-and-go. Start off with just a few minutes of exercise per day, and increase your workout as you feel more energized.

Stronger resilience. When faced with mental or emotional challenges in life, exercise can help you build resilience and cope in a healthy way, instead of resorting to alcohol, drugs, or other negative behaviours that ultimately only make your symptoms worse. Regular exercise can also help boost your immune system and reduce the impact of stress.
