Well, we are well into January and there are more people at yoga than ever, which is fantastic!
This is just a quick note to let you know that all the yoga leaders are now back in Dili and so classes are resuming their normal routines: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Alola Foundation. Classes start at 6:15pm sharp - please try to be on time! For the moment there are no schedule changes for February so our schedule continues as always.
Our teachers are:
Monday - Tanya (various length, 1 - 1 1/2 hours) - $4
Wednesday - Bree (1 hour 15 mins) - donation as you see fit
Friday - Deevah ('Dynamic' Ashtanga class - 1 1/2 hours) - $4
Each has a different style, why not try them all? Most of our classes are quite active, but don't be discouraged if you need time to build up your strength - try a shorter class, drink lots of water, and rest in Child's Pose as often as you need.
With the rainy season well and truly here, it is HOT in Dili and despite our aircons, the yoga room gets steamy at this time of year. Therefore please drink lots of water on yoga days - bring some to class with you! Also it gets sweaty at times so you may want to bring a towel to class if you are prone to perspire - a small one to wipe your brow or even a large one to put over your mat if you find it gets slippery. And to think in some places people pay big money for 'hot' yoga! ;)
See you on the mat and Namaste!
