Six new ways to try yoga in 2020

Posted on

There was a point in time where yoga was seen as a passing trend but many would attest that it’s not.

Yoga is a mind-body practice that encourages peacefulness and balance. It’s a beautiful form of self-care and a physical activity that brings loads of benefits.

Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or totally new to this, here are six different ways you can try yoga in 2020.

Yoga on Water

Who knew this was a thing? Talk about cool!

At various locations across Canberra, you can try yoga on a stand-up SALTI float. A low impact workout (but a sure challenge) where you’re immersed in the present moment and guaranteed a laugh, this is an epic way to do yoga and cool down this summer.

Want to try it for free? This Friday 10 January, Salti is hosting a free Salti Floating Fitness/Yoga Class as part of HerCanberra’s Get ACTIVE series!

The class will be a total body workout, firing the core while giving participants a physical and mental challenge.

So, what can you expect? Yoga, HIIT & Strength workouts on a floating blow-up board! Fun and fitness for all ages.

This class is limited to 10 participants so be quick and reserve your spot now on 6241 1132.

Happening Friday 10 January from 10 am – 10.30 am at Gungahlin Leisure Centre, 71 The Valley Ave, Gungahlin. Google Maps.
