Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Yoga With A View!

Uniting a passion for yoga with a love for location, local Yoga Teacher Norma Strang is opening the doors to a series of new yoga classes with stunning views across Coral Sea Marina.

Located at the Lookout Lounge above the bustling marina village, Yoga + 5 is a place where you can step away from the busy world below and connect with yourself, discovering inner-peace and life balance along the way.

A yoga teacher for the past 20 years, Norma has operated four yoga studios around the country, most recently in Byron Bay before moving to the Whitsundays 18 months ago.

With a wealth of experience that spans many aspects of health and healing, Norma is a qualified health coach who also runs retreats and detox programs.

She now brings this spectrum of devotion into her yoga practice, showing participants a deeper more meaningful form of yoga that is often not found in more modern practices.

“Yoga is about connection with yourself, with God and with the Spirit,” said Norma.

Beginning her classes with therapeutic postures, Norma shows her students how to get more oxygen moving around their bodies through different asanas.

While different positions are explored, she explains the merits of each one, whether that be for detoxing the kidneys or working on the thyroid which is excellent for weight loss.

Norma then moves onto the Five Tibetan Rites, a practice that is over 2,500 years old but rarely used these days.

“It works on the Chakra system,” explains Norma.

“They call it the fountain of youth because it works through the endocrine system which is the energetic system of the body and helps with aging.”

The class then finishes with a deep meditation to re-energise.

A strong believer that yoga is for everybody, Norma says that “you are never too old, it’s never too late and you’re never too sick to start from scratch”.

She hopes that everyone feels welcome in her class and assures each attendee that an individual approach will be taken where intuition is used to best serve each participant.

If you are looking for a relaxed, connective experience in a stunning location with a highly skilled teacher, then take a free trial class with Norma.
