Modern life causes stress and sleepless nights for the majority of us.
The main problem being is, that although modern life has provided us with plenty of new aggravations, our bodies haven’t evolved new ways to deal with them. Unfortunately we can’t run from rush-hour traffic jams, taxes or heavy workloads, we’re meant to just ‘take it on the chin’ and carry on regardless.
However, help is at hand in the form of Yogalilies – Yoga & Pilates studio. Situated in the heart of Newcastle, this multi storied studio offers a combination of the newest and more traditional forms of Yoga and Pilates, mixed with the most ancient methods of aligning mind, body and soul from the most skilled teachers in their field.
“Think positively and act positively”
Established in 2011, Yogalilies was the brain child of veteran Yoga instructor Lissa Foley, who decided to open her own purpose built studio after years of frustrating lessons in grubby, cold community centres. Three years later, Lissa’s dream to broaden the reach of Yoga in Newcastle has certainly come into fruition. With its luxurious warm and welcoming studios, treatment rooms and changing facilities, this Pilgrim Street based retreat has quickly become the heart of Newcastle’s Yoga community.
I must admit, that I knew very little, and was even a little sceptical about Yoga and its philosophy prior to visiting Yogalilies. It was only after chatting to the charming and insightful ladies of this urban retreat that I realised just how beneficial Yoga can be for both physical and mental wellbeing.
Originating in India about 5,000 years ago, Yoga focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing. Many scientific trials of varying quality have been published on yoga suggesting that yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. There’s also evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains, depression and stress.
Yogalilies have a range of classes and courses which cater for all age levels and abilities from basic Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Vinyassa Flow Yoga, Hot Yoga and even Barre which incorporates elements of Yoga Pilates and Ballet. With a daily timetable of classes from 7:30am – 8:00pm Yogalilies also offer meditation, mindfulness, pregnancy and beginners classes and courses.
These charming, professional people have certainly made a believer out of me.
