What do we do?

The aim of the Association is to bring together like-minded individuals to practice activities which promote well-being, or the feel-good factor which allows us each to enjoy all areas of our life more fully, with gusto and pizazz!

One of the core activities of the Association is the practice of yoga. Hatha yogis believe that by starting with the physical practice of yoga we work from the outside in. One first notices their muscles becoming both stronger and more flexible, and their balance improving. Then the inward journey begins with improvements to one's breathing, digestion, sleep patterns, and overall energy. If one pays close attention, one will also notice improved concentration, increased confidence, expansion of creativity, and a total joy for life settling upon them!

While yoga is one of the core activities of the Association, it is a goal and vision to expand into many further related activities such as Mindfulness in daily life, Meditation, Massage, Walking, Cycling, Juicing, Art, etc.

Of course the practice is in no way a substitute for medical treatments. Each member must sign a Certification of Health in which they declare that they are fit to participate in the activities of the Association.

No prior experience is required. Come along, give it a try, and see what you think!
