Winner of TYC props raffle & some news on our donations.

Posted yesterday    0 comments


The raffle was drawn at the TYC committee meeting last evening and the lucky winner is Amanda Watkins -a very keen and dedicated yogi. Congratulations Amanda.

We raised approximately $500 for the Nightshelter  and I have delivered 5 boxes of food to them in all. They are absolutely delighted with this & asked me to pass on their thanks and appreciation.

Earlier this year we made a $1500 donation to  Te Whare Putea Heartlands Trust Kaikoura--after the devastating earthquake caused massive destruction there.  Just recenly I heard back from the manager there with an update on how they have used some of this donation to date;  ' An older couple who were quite badly affected by the earthquake received 2 sessions each of therapeutic massage, we’ve done 2 Gym memberships for young mums, 2 seasons for 2 sisters at Girl Guides and have bought 2 tubes of a special skin cream for a little girl with a bad skin condition, parents are struggling to afford the extra expense -we will probably buy more next month."

Many thanks to you all -members & casuals. Together we have made a difference.

Want some Yoga Props? TYC 'props' raffle begins this week. Bring your spare change along!

Posted 27 days ago    0 comments

TYC committee have agreed on the proceeds of this years raffle going to our neighbours -the Tauranga Moana Nightshelter. 

The Raffle will consist of yoga props to assist you with your home practice.

Cost of tickets= $2 each or 3 for $5.

As well as the proceeds of the raffle going to the Nightshelter, committee want to give a box of non- perishable foodstuffs. So if you can spare it, please bring along a non perishable food item or two to add.

Since 2014 the Nighshelter has given food, shelter and care to 335 men. They have assited 40 men per year into other housing after their initial stay .The age range of the men is 18-70.

As well as the basic necessities of life and a place to call 'home' where folk believe in them-the staff at the shelter give the men love and encouragement.  In this 'safe' environment many of the men then feel they are able to embrace change, take up offers of helping agencies and move on into new accomodation. Since 2014 the Nighthelter staff have assisted 40 men per year into other housing . This task  however is getting more challenging with the ever increasing cost of rentals and shortage of social housing. There are currenly 6 men in desperate need of housing.  

Thank you TYC Committee

  • Yin poses are primarily those that work on the body areas above the knees and below the naval
  • They can assist you to stretch the fascia tissue(connective tissue) by holding primarily static poses for a longer period.
  • In Yin you learn the importance and pleasure of  correct breathing -as it guides you deeper into a pose
  • This can help you to unlock some of those very tight areas.
