After a brief introduction to our work here at the Byron Community Centre and Welcome to Country, you and your host will join the Elder Beats Drumming Circle led by a master drummer Gareth for an hour. During the drumming, participants often describe feelings of euphoria, being inspired and invigorated. This is a special experience where the coming together as a group leads to bonding between the participants and new friendships being made. We will then accompany you to the courtyard where you will be able to socialise with the other drummers over a morning tea prepared by volunteers at the centre. We'll then head over to the chair yoga class with Yoga Therapist Christina or Yoga Teacher Pippy. This relaxing yet energising 60 minute class encourages seniors to listen to their body through deep breathing, mindful movement and gentle self acceptance. We begin with a gentle warm up to lubricate the joints, open shoulders & hips and move into fun challenging brain/body stretches to improve cognitive function. We always give options to respect the body's limitations and a light hearted attitude to encourage participation makes this class suitable for all seniors.
My co-host Christina and I have been volunteering at the Byron Community Centre for over 6 years in many and varied roles. We are long time locals and have extensive networks and experience in healthy ageing strategies, positive living and healing modalities. We both love to show off the diverse and uplifting culture that is Byron Bay.
