Yoga by the lake

Lake Macquarie City Council have announced that this year’s Living Smart Festival at Speers Point Park on Saturday 24 September will kick off with a free outdoor yoga session on the shores of Lake Macquarie.

Living Smart Festival is the Hunter region’s premier sustainability event, attracting tens of thousands of visitors every year.

Council’s Acting Manager Sustainability, Dean Chapman, said he was pleased to welcome Whole Living to the Festival line up in 2016.

“Festivalgoers can start their day with a relaxing yoga session by the lake at 8am, then go on to enjoy all that the Festival has to offer – coffee, farmers market, live music, market stalls, eco fashion, sustainability demonstrations and more.”

Whole Living co-creator and yoga practitioner, Anamari Becker, said all members of the community were welcome to attend the session.

“We’ll be presenting a gentle class, that is suitable for all skill levels,” Ms Becker said.

“Yoga promotes inner peace and harmony and is a useful tool to help manage the everyday stresses of life.”

“Best of all, you feel great after doing it.”
