One of the many aims of Yoga is to bring about balance and harmony within the body and mind. Yoga means ‘yoke’ or ‘unite’. When these different aspects of ourselves are balanced and united we may experience great peace, calm, tranquility, bliss within our present moment awareness. Here there is no sense of identifying with our ego. We become our ‘true self’, identifying with the soul. With continuous and dedicated practice, we may reach a state of unification with the universe beyond time and space. The sages and gurus call this ‘liberation’. They believe this state to be eternal where consciousness continues and re-birth ends.
Zumba is a fun, easy to follow, latin-inspired dance fitness workout for all ages and fitness levels. You do not need to be a dancer. Anyone of any age (16+*), gender or ability is welcome to join. You just need to wear comfortable footwear and clothes in which you can move easily, bring plenty of water, and be ready to move with lots of energy! The routines are easy to follow and consist of a combination of rhythms (including Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Calypso, Quebradita, Cha Cha, Irish, Rock n’ Roll and much more!). It’s a great way to get fit, lose weight, tone up or just have a fun hour out!
