Yoga for Wellbeing – 4-Week Programme for Thalassemia Society UK
We are pleased to announce a 4-week virtual yoga programme open to all members of the UK Thalassemia Society. The sessions will be held weekly on Thursday evenings as follows:
Dates: 16th, 23rd, 30th of July and 6th of August
Time: 5.30 pm – 6.30 pm each session. Please login in by 5.25 pm
Place: Online via Zoom (link to be sent upon registration)
Please register for and attend the entire programme (all 4 sessions) in order to gain full benefit from the practices.
In these sessions, you will learn some beginner yoga practices to help with overall wellbeing. More details about each practice are available below.
This programme is taught by Shayla Ghelani who is trained and certified through the Isha School of Hatha Yoga, under the guidance of Sadhguru – with more than 1750 hours of in-class training. Find out more about her regular programs here.
You will need to be on a light stomach condition for the practices, which means a gap of 2.5 hours after a full meal, 1.5 hours after a snack and 30 minutes after any drink (tea, coffee, juice, etc.) except water.
Please join each session from your laptop, and please login 5 minutes earlier to get settled in.
You will need to have a yoga mat or a comfy, carpeted surface. Please also bring a small cushion which is about 1 to 2 inches thick that will not compress.
Please ensure you have a private area where you will not be disturbed by anyone (family, children, pets) for the duration of the session. Please also keep mobile phones off so that you can focus on the practices.
The most conducive clothing to practice yoga in is loose, organic cotton (or any natural fabric). If you don’t have organic, then loose cotton clothing is best.
For the Yoga Namaskar practice, please note that those with a Hernia and women in the 3rd or 4th month of pregnancy cannot do this particular practice.
