Are you a Northern Beaches native looking to benefit from yoga or a yoga practitioner looking to change up your routine? Whatever level you’re at right now with yoga, you’re on the right wellness track – especially since the pandemic rollercoaster ride.
The benefits of yoga are well-documented. Aside from helping improve one’s posture, balance and flexibility, yoga eases back pain and arthritis symptoms. It’s also a great form of exercise that benefits the cardiovascular system, improves one’s mood, reduces stress and aids with relaxation. So don’t be surprised if you’re sleeping a little better when you take up yoga.
If you’re looking for a place to practise yoga in the Northern Beaches or Sydney in general, then you’ll find this general guide quite useful.
How to find a yoga practice near you
There are several places for yoga in the Northern Beaches, whether you live in Warriewood, Manly, Brookvale or elsewhere in the area.
In fact, there are studios for Bikram yoga, hot yoga, aerial yoga, Ashtanga yoga, pregnancy yoga in the Northern Beaches and other types of yoga practices.
Yoga for the over 50s
People tend to lose their muscle strength and flexibility as they grow older. But if you are into yoga or want to learn it, being in your 50s is as good a time as any to master a couple of movements.
So if you wish to learn yoga in earnest, the Northern Beaches & Mosman College offers dedicated classes for people who are already in their 50s. The course is a hatha yoga class being taught by a practitioner who’s also in her 50s.
By taking up yoga classes, you’ll become more flexible (great for heart health), healthier and not be at the mercy of the aches and pains associated with ageing.
Yoga by the sea
What could be more Zen than practising yoga by the sea? After all, you can experience the best yoga in the Northern Beaches when it’s done with the sea in sight, and you get to breathe in the fresh sea breeze.
Of course, if you want to do yoga and indulge in some reinvigorating me-time, yoga retreats are the way to go. Here, not only will you become better acquainted with yoga, but you will also have the chance to commune with nature through forest bathing or Shinrin-yoku and enjoy some scrumptious plant-based meals.
Yoga retreats are also opportunities for you to meet like-minded people, make new friends or simply enjoy the forest and the beach on your own.
Yoga online at home
If you have a dedicated Zen space or a spot at home where you can do yoga in peace, you can simply practise yoga on your own if you already have a level of mastery. You can also attend online classes if you’re a yoga newbie or if you’re looking to add to the yoga poses you have already mastered.
Take a load off with yoga
Yoga is a wonderful way to not only achieve physical fitness but also experience stress relief and overall wellness.
