Yoga Lite offers restorative and therapeutic yoga combining postures (asanas) and Yoga techniques carefully selected for people carrying extra weight and / or with range-of-motion challenges, movement restrictions or chronic pain. Yoga Lite is based on traditional Hatha Yoga with release of physical and mental tension, improved posture and alignment, cessation of chaotic thinking and cultivation of the finer nuances of life including present moment living, awareness of beauty and gratitude.
Yoga Lite is beneficial for health and can promote weight loss. Here's why:
- The practice of Yoga increases body awareness
- Yoga helps reduce worry, anxiety and negative thinking
- Yoga directly influences the metabolism of body by acting upon hormonal functions
- Expansive breathing increases oxygen intake promoting vitality and improving cardiovascular health
- Yoga improves muscle tone and overall strength
- In the storms of life, Yoga offers tools to help maintain balance and inner peace resulting in less emotional and stress-related eating
More about your Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor
Donna Mitchell began the study of yoga after extensive travel and an awareness of the need for change in her own life. Busy running a full-time business, Lifestyles with Donna, (specializing in weight reduction and healthy living), she fast-tracked her two-year Teaching Training and completed the course in one year becoming a certified Hatha Yoga Instructor in 2006 under the impeccable teaching and care of Diane Donovan, Body Works, the Cayman Islands.
Meditative and therapeutic yoga with healing overtones are the components of her teaching style. Donna leads yoga for guests at Morritt’s Tortuga inspiring them in the art of travel and transformation through yoga. She designed Body of Light, an eight-week yoga course with Christian concepts and scriptures. Living a life of passion after overcoming obesity (Donna lost 87 lbs in the 80’s) has inspired Donna to design and develop Yoga Lite. So come and experience this for yourself. At Morritt's Tortuga in East End, Countryside in Savannah or at South Sound Community Centre.
“When overweight and overeating, I was really out of touch with my physical body and on an emotional roller-coaster ride. Yoga Lite will offer new tools to help you make friends with your body and live in a positive manner”. Donna
