September 2015 Newsletter

The Yoga group continues to flourish, with a core group of regulars and others who come when they can. Everyone is doing well and the aim is to continue to develop and enable the core group to progress without excluding newcomers. Learning Yoga in the right way is a language and a feeling the body truly understands, leading to benefits for all practitioners. These can include greater flexibility, improved posture, reduced levels of stress and deeper, more relaxed breathing. There have been medically approved reports of improvements in participants’ medical conditions which is encouraging. We don’t tie ourselves in knots or aim to become super bendy people, nor do we sit or stand in odd positions for so long that bits of us turn blue and drop off! We do aim to practise each week to the very best of our own, individual ability, just taking each exercise to the point where we feel some resistance and no further. We definitely don’t adopt a ‘No pain, no gain’ mantra. In this way, the sessions become deeply calming, empowering and, above all, fun. Yoga benefits all and is not just for women. So, gentlemen, do come along and see what Yoga can offer you. Some of the members go for a coffee and a natter afterwards too.

If any of this sounds like something you might want to try, come along on a Friday morning and give it a go or, if you’re not sure, call or email me for a chat.

New Picture (49)Oh joy! Friday morning is Yoga morning! Oh dear! On Friday 31st January there was “NO VEHICULAR ENTRANCE” to the car park at CRMC. But that didn’t deter an enthusiastic group of Ken’s disciples from joining his yoga session. They know that “IT MAKES GOOD SENSE FOR THEIR WELL-BEING”. It is a great antidote to the stresses of tech-filled lives. Come and see for yourselves: you WILL feel more alive afterwards!

If you feel like taking a tiny break during any posture Ken won’t notice because he keeps his eyes closed much of the time (or seems to anyway!) But seriously there is no judgement or criticism whatsoever: you simply do what is right for your body at that moment. Just give it a try and you may have a real surprise at what a difference it makes. We would welcome a few more men to give the group gender balance.

Ken has asked us to take along 2 tennis balls next week, but he didn’t mention racquets, so we’re not going to try tennis. Intriguing!

Ken is happy to chat (about the sessions) on 0115 939 2232 or 07941 140777, or you can email him – kenmorrell@virginmedia.com See you next Friday, 9.30 a.m. at CRMC. If you don’t possess a mat we have a few spares

2 January 2013

This is just a New Year reminder that the Beeston U3A Yoga Group will begin its 2013 weekly meetings at 9.30 on Friday 11 January in the Main Hall, CRMC. We normally finish around 11am. Our classes are suitable for everyone (ladies and gentlemen) whether you’re a complete beginner or you have some previous experience. All you need is a Yoga Mat which can be purchased relatively cheaply from most large Supermarkets or, if you fancy a go without committing to buying a mat, we have one or two spare ones that can be used on a ‘first come first served’ basis (make sure that you give me a call first, though, as we have a very limited number available).

Although in this style of Yoga we don’t tie ourselves in knots, or stand in odd positions for ages and ages, we do aim to practice each week to the very best of our own, individual ability, just taking each exercise to the point where we feel some resistance and no further. In this way, the sessions become deeply calming, empowering, energizing and, above all, fun and definitely the antidote to seasonal over indulgence!

If anyone fancies the idea of starting the New Year with a go at a new activity, then you’ll be made very welcome. If you’d like to give Yoga a go or if you’d like further information before committing yourself, then please give me a call on 939 2232 or 07941 140777. See also Yoga Poster

Best Wishes and a Happy New Year to you all,

Ken

September 2012 Newsletter

The Yoga Group has been meeting since the beginning of July and currently has around fifteen members. Each of our sessions is a unique mix of traditional Yoga postures (asanas) breathing exercises (pranayama) and guided meditation with no two weeks being the same and with each session tailored to the requirements of those attending that session. We don’t tie ourselves in knots or aim to become super bendy people, nor do we sit or stand in odd positions for so long that bits of us turn blue and drop off! We do aim to practice each week to the very best of our own, individual ability, just taking each exercise to the point where we feel some resistance and no further. We definitely don’t adopt a ‘No pain, no gain’ mantra. In this way, the sessions become deeply calming, empowering and, above all, fun.

The fundamental assumption is that there is an inner potential inside everyone regardless of age or capability that can be stimulated and cultivated through this approach. Learning Yoga in the right way is a language and a feeling the body truly understands leading to benefits for all practitioners. These can include greater flexibility, improved posture, reduced levels of stress and deeper, more relaxed breathing.

If any of this sounds like something you might want to try, come along on a Friday morning and give it a go or, if you’re not sure, call or email me for a chat.

Our New Group

We are meeting every week on Friday mornings; 9.30 for a 9.45 start and finishing by 11, in the Chilwell Road Methodist Church.
The Group is for beginners and improvers and all that’s needed is a Yoga mat. During each Class we will practice a number of Yoga Postures (asanas) Breathing exercises (Pranayama) and Meditations that will lead to greater flexibility, strength and mental focus.
We don’t tie ourselves up in knots or hold positions for long periods of time.
This authentic style of Yoga, originating in 8th Century Kashmir, is deeply calming, empowering and fun.

If you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact me.
If you have any medical conditions or injuries you should contact me first either by email or ‘phone Ken Morrell 07941 140777. kenmorrell@virginmedia.com
