Yoga in Paradise

Calling all Cairns yogis! Commencing Tuesday 1 September, Paradise Palms Resort and Country Club will offer twice weekly yoga classes in its beautiful tropical surrounds that are aimed at increasing spiritual, mental and physical wellbeing.

From next week, one of the region’s most experienced Hatha yoga teachers, Karen Thesinger of Xclusive Yoga will lead two, 90 minute classes from 6pm every Tuesday and 9am every Saturday.

According to Karen, yoga is a well-known, Hindu method of exercise and discipline aimed at spiritual, mental and physical wellbeing.

“I am thrilled at to have such a breathtaking environment as my backdrop to introduce the art and science of yoga. From our very first class we will explore this ancient, Eastern philosophy through the practice of ‘asanas ‘or postures that are all focused on promoting a healthy body and mind.

“These classes are open to everyone –those who are new to yoga and those continuing to develop their practice. Each class is designed to meet the individual needs of participants in a safe and encouraging environment and to inspire a sense of peace,” said Karen.

Each class comprises a series of warm-up stretches and postures, breathing techniques, alignment of postures and personal adjustments – culminating in a deep relaxation session.

Karen Thesinger is a qualified yoga teacher and member of the Yoga Teachers Association of Australia.
