SMYL presents a brand new Secret Yoga experience for International Yoga Day, the 21st of June and coincidentally the longest day. This will take place on the Great Lawn of the Helix Park in Falkirk starting at 10am and finishing at around 11.30am.
The yoga class will concentrate on the Sun Salute or Surya Namaskar sequence as is appropriate on the longest day, it will also include a breathing practice and a longer relaxation. This will also give those attending the novel opportunity to practise yoga outside. Practising yoga outdoors changes the energy within the class and allows the yogi to feel a deeper connection with nature which is beneficial to wellbeing, can help reduce stress and improve concentration.
Historically, spending time in green space and or nature has been taken for granted, but is being gradually eroded within modern society.
SMYL's new event Secret Yoga intends to give yogis an opportunity to practice in unusual and outdoor environments to reintroduce this connection thereby nourishing the mind and body. Practicing yoga in different places can change the participant's view of yoga and the class environment and can of course be fun!
