Edward Hebden B.Sc., D.C.
Edward has a passion for fitness. Cycling, jogging and swimming play an integral role in his life. He discovered the value of Chiropractic through a sports injury many years ago.
Initially it was a focus on sports and fitness that inspired him to pursue a career in chiropractic, but his studies and experiences as a chiropractor opened Edward's mind to broader applications. He still enjoys helping athletes to achieve their goals, but also derives great satisfaction from helping people from all walks of life remain active and healthy over time.
Healing Arts Yoga Teachers
Chandra Yoga (Mondays & Tuesdays 6pm; Wednesdays 7am)
“Yoga is music and dance for the body and for the soul. It is a powerful means of reconnecting to everything important in your life. It creates a space in which your natural, creative energies are recharged and reawakened.“
Classes are based on classical yoga made body friendly, safe and appropriate for the western student. Classes reflect the philosophy that yogic asanas (or postures) are here to serve the student on their journey, not the other way around, and that gentle interaction with the postures, rather than force is the most direct pathway leading to the rewards of yoga. It’s hard to define Catherine's yoga style because of the many influences Catherine has had in her studies over the years in Australia, America and India. She has done official training courses at the Vishnu Devananda Ashram at Neyyardam, with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at The Art of Living International Centre in Bangalore, the Satyananda Ashrams in Indian and Australia, and teacher training with Donna Farhi.
Classes include: classical asana, pranayama or yogic breathing, mantra or vibrational sounds, yoga nidra or deep relaxation, awareness of subtle body, visualizations and meditation, and practices to improve kinesthetic sense, pelvic floor and core stability, postural integrity and healthy alignment.
