This term we are looking to introduce Yoga for both students and staff through Equilibrium – The Holistic Living Project (https://www.holisticlivingproject.com.au/ who are located along Unley Road). It is our hope we will continue this through the year with a strong uptake.

It is well documented that the regular practice of yoga may produce many health benefits, including increased cardiovascular fitness, improved muscular strength and normalisation of blood pressure. Yoga can also help lower stress and promote improved sleeping patterns. Over time, those who practice yoga report lower levels of stress, and increased feelings of happiness and wellbeing. This is largely due to the focus and concentration needed for postures, and the breath acts as a form of meditation.

At Walford, we will be running these sessions at lunchtime in the Movement Room upstairs in the Sports Centre. Sessions will run on Monday at lunchtime for those in Years 6 – 9 and then Tuesday at lunchtime for those in Years 10 – 12. There will be a cost in joining these at $10 per class. These will run from Weeks 5 – 8 and would therefore cost $40 as a pack. Once minimum numbers are satisfied I can confirm arrangements on how to sign up and make payment with the company.

To confirm your interest please complete the link – https://www.jotform.com/221167786025862, and we look forward to sharing more updates soon.
