Fitness In Palmerston & Beyond

 Best Fitness Gym Palmerston NT Has.

At Palmerston, Flametree has 2 yoga fitness classes a week. Sat 8am & Mon 6pm.

Here’s the story of how I (Dave) got fit, flexible, toned, calm, & free of worry.

Here’s why I (Dave, a Flametree student & psychiatrist), use yoga fitness classes at Flametree, instead of going to a Palmerston gym, or wherever. For the best type of gym Palmerston NT has (or even for far beyond), try Flametree’s yoga fitness Palmerston classes, or do it at other Flametree Palmerston locations, or both.

After dabbling in the wild fury of squash, I (Dave) took up distance running, at 40. Over the next 15 years, I completed half a dozen marathons, and innumerable half-marathons.

My genetics, and the relentless impact of feet on road or grass, predicted serious damage to my knees. So, unfortunately, the mindful “runner’s high” became but a memory.

What was I to do? Being inactive is a near impossibility, and cycling, though fun and maybe a sensible replacement for running, somehow lacked the mindfulness I needed. (I think hyper-alertness to mad drivers “drove” my thinking on this!).

Tai chi was fun and appealed to the rhythm sense, but it seemed to not keep muscles as taut and toned as I wished.

Kim, one of my teachers at Flametree yoga fitness Palmerston classes. Handstand is an example of a a yoga inversion where you overcome your fears. It can be learnt in do-able stages. It also builds strength & balance. Here’s a short story about Kim, a Territorian, & a tiny video of her yoga.

My first attempt at yoga fitness

A Flametree Yoga advert for Beginners Yoga suggested another option. So, I began their yoga fitness classes.

For instance, I soon learnt that headstands were a recipe for my own pain and discomfort (at least at the stage I was at). But, in contrast, hanging upside down in a yoga sling was do-able and invigorating. (In other words, in my early yoga, I was shown some easier ways to get the various benefits of yoga).

Of course, there was far more to yoga classes than headstands, and for a while, I looked forward to a couple of classes a week.

In each class, I was guided through 15-20 yoga postures. The classes started with more vigorous moving poses that sometimes called cardio yoga. Then we moved into poses to calm us down. In their various ways, all of the poses built strength, flexibility, focus, and the many other other yoga benefits.

But then work and study intervened. So, I stopped what turned out to be just my first attempt at yoga.

Time passed and joints stiffened, tendons shortened, and irritability increased.

But a professional fascination with the complex interplay of mind and body was a constant reminder of the benefits of exercise, sleep, good diet, social engagement, and mindfulness. (I had gotten all those things from my first yoga sojourn).

Yoga delivered flexibility, balance, toned muscles, & peace of mind

Once again, an advert from Flametree’s yoga gym Palmerston reminded me of the teachers and teaching I had enjoyed. So, I began again to learn the poses and practices that Flametree teaches, as well as something of yoga philosophy.

Now, a few years later, I have progressed to an intermediate stage in the journey. On the one hand, that knee will still not straighten, and one shoulder rotates to 45 degrees and stops.

But, for instance, I can now turn my head and back to look behind. That’s a useful novelty after many years of stiffness and rotational impairment.

I still can’t remember most of the names of the poses (although the relaxing “Legs-Up-The-Wall” yoga pose is an exception).

In addition, I occasionally become left-right confused. But then, so do some of my teachers!

More importantly, my muscles are toned, my balance is impressive, and my mental equanimity is a savior in these times of plague. They’re just some of the many yoga benefits that I’ve steadily come to love.

My Flametree fitness journey continues

Have I mastered the art of yoga? No, but new yoga skills certainly keep arriving.

For example, in a small class, I got some extra personal attention and guidance in what it meant to “soften the front of the right thigh”, as well as how to coordinate positions of multiple bits of my body. I found I could do it all at the same time, without my brain exploding!

Though now I’m a little more elegantly and accurately posed, I’m far from perfect. But I get it’s work in progress.

My conclusion, and why Flametree Yoga is important to me, is that I now understand “the pose is for the ego, and the journey is for the mind, body and soul”. In other words, no matter where I’m at with yoga poses, they still give me heaps of benefits for both the mind and body.
