Yoga with Gym Ball
In my hatha yoga practice for the last 5 years, I have been doing yoga with a gym ball in my yoga therapy. This gave me the idea of yoga with a gym ball and how the ball can give freedom to our body and how everyone can achieve some remarkable change in their bodies. A gentle warm up followed by yoga with gym ball. This enhances your performance in your job, sports and also revitalises you. It can bring a new outlook to life and improve your health through postures along with traditional hatha yoga. Ball yoga allows the body to gain good strong support. Ball yoga also provides good coordination, balance with motions and an exercise that will provide good stability through a 90 minutes yoga workout. This will bring a new outlook to yourself, which relaxes and at the same time brings you more energy. This course is suitable for those who have done Yoga before.
History of Ball exercises: the plastic ball used in ball exercises was developed in the 1960s by an Italian petrochemical manufacturer named Aquilino Cosani. It has come a long way today – almost all fitness centres use it in a variety of ways.

About your tutor:
My journey to Hatha Yoga began in India in 1968 at the age of 9. Yoga is like a vast ocean of in-depth Science and philosophy of our body. It involves disciplining not only the body but also the mind and the will. Yoga is described as a smart way of living in today’s world.
I have been creating a professional teaching environment over the past 29 years for healthy living. Each class is designed to help and improve ideas of how yoga can assist people in various ways.
I offer a wide range of courses and it includes Arka Dhyana-Meditation, Therapy Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga, Mum + Baby, Yoga for Children, Beginner Yoga, Improver Yoga, Open class Yoga, and new in 2013 Ball Yoga.
I have been involved with running yoga with various institutions over this time, including evening classes since 1992 at Shirley Boys’ High School. I have noticed in my teaching that we are more and more aware of the search for good health and my teaching reflects that.
