Undoubtedly, the world’s oldest exercise program, practiced for more than 3000 years is highly relevant and extremely popular among Torontonians even today. Of the original eight paths to well being, at Wynn Fitness, we teach four paths in our group fitness classes – Asanas (physical postures), Pranayam (breadth control and regulation), Dharana, (which is about concentration) and Dhyana, (meditation techniques)
Yoga is the best compliment to any fitness regime as it gives you better self-awareness and control, improve flexibility, strength, balance and even cardiovascular fitness. It is popular with people with arthritis for its gentle way of promoting flexibility and strength.
Our Yoga group fitness class is for everyone, as this form of exercise can be enjoyed from childhood to your advanced years. Classes can vary in duration from 45 minutes to an hour. A longer class will give you more time for learning the breathing and relaxation and will give the teacher time to work with your individual ability.
What to bring:
Don’t forget to bring your yoga mat. Yoga mats come in all kinds of colors and materials, from natural rubber to synthetic, as well as different levels of thickness. Use a sponge to wash your mat with soap and water, and let it air-dry.
Get early so that you can start with the class.
Take off your shoes and socks before you walk into our yoga studio.
Leave you mobile phone or iPod out of the room.
Don’t leave in the middle of class.
Greeting your Instructor: Do not hesitate when your instructor bows his or her head as if in prayer, clasps her hands together in front of his/her heart and says, “Namaste” (pronounced nah-mas-tay). You’ll notice the class says it back as well. This Sanskrit word means “I honor you” and is normally said at the end of class.
