Monaghan Sports Partnership is delighted to relaunch the Yoga in the Park - Outdoors Yoga programme.
This programme is ideal for those who are complete beginners to yoga and also those who have practised some yoga in the past. Being outdoors allows participants to practise yoga in a safe and friendly environment.
Practicing yoga outdoors gives the space you need to check in with yourself. You can move your body the way you need to. Stretch wider and further than you have before. And if you wobble, or fall over, at least no one is around to see it!
Yoga is a practice born to become more aligned and in touch with nature around us. Many of the poses in the practice are named after animals and their movements. Outdoors yoga benefits your body and mind, making you feel more in tune with yourself and the world around you.
Taking your yoga outdoors will open your mind up to what’s around you. Instead of music through speakers, enjoy the simple bird song instead.
Spend as much time as you need on your practice and reconnect with the world around you.
Being outdoors fully awakens your senses. There is nothing like a cool gust of wind, the smell of blooming flowers, the song of birds and the noise of the wind to make you present.
Taking yoga outdoors is a change to your usual routine. By practicing outside, you will appreciate the beauty in the little things you normally take for granted.
It’s not new to us that getting outside, back to nature and moving our bodies is good for our mental health. Practicing yoga outdoors combines exercise, releasing natural mood boosters (endorphins) and the natural world. These two work incredibly well together, improving your sense of self. From feeling more confident and happier to carefree and open, outdoors yoga benefits your mental health.
This programme will run for 6 weeks. All you need is a mat, a bottle of water and comfortable clothing.
