Exercising your way into 2015

Has the stress of Christmas gotten to you? Has your belt buckle needed to expand a notch or two? If this is the case or if you just need to relax a little before the New Year, then today the Pop Up festival in Nicosia’s Makarios Avenue is putting on the perfect solution.

This is the second year the street is host to a series of pop up events. There are theatrical performances, arts and crafts, and shops where you can buy unique items but this afternoon there is something a little different: a Yoga and Meditation workshop to prepare for what is ahead in 2015.

The workshop will be run by instructor Athina Georgiou (who prefers to be called Nana) at 4pm until 5.30pm in the basement of the City Plaza and is absolutely free. There will be exercises from Kundalini and Hatha yoga for a calm heart, for making the impossible possible, changing your energy into positivity and creativity and to welcome some good fortune into your life.

Anyone can go along as it is suitable for beginners and those who are already familiar with yoga and its exercises. Nana will focus and help each participant to identify their goals and desires.

So if you want to get rid of any negativity you have been carrying around in 2014 and pave the way to a positive 2015 and beyond, Makarios Ave could be your yellow brick road this afternoon.
