As part of its CHANGE Project, Council is excited to promote the Friends of the Escarpment Parks' (FEP) second 9 week Eco Gym program. Designed to suit people with varying fitness levels and abilities, the program begins on Wednesday 18 July and will continue through to Wednesday 26 September.

It aims to provide a group of up to 10 people with a safe and interesting way to enhance their fitness and health, while taking positive action to improve the bushland parks. Instead of traditional indoor gym programs, Eco Gym provides a simple, effective, outdoor environmental activity project each week from 9am-11.30am at Hartmann Bushland Reserve, 4 Alderley Street, Rangeville. Suitable for ages from 18-80, the program attracts a $10 booking fee per family. To find out more or to book, contact Greg on 0428 288 077 or email glukes@bigpond.com.

The Eco Gym program is an initiative of Friends of the Escarpment Parks (FEP) – a volunteer community group interested in the management, conservation and public use of Toowoomba's bushland escarpment parks. For more information about FEP, please visit www.fep.org.au

Saras - Meditation trainer from The CHANGE Project

People of The CHANGE Project - Saras (volunteer meditation teacher)

We interviewed Saras, the volunteer leader of the free Sahaja Yoga Meditation classes held each week at the Toowoomba City Library.

What inspired you to start your personal journey with meditation?

My journey started in 2000 when I started to do meditation classes. I joined these classes to help me manage work and the general stresses of life. When the provider moved on I saw an opportunity to teach this technique, as I wanted to help others to enjoy the benefits of meditation and have a better life.

How would you describe meditation to people who don’t know what it is?

It’s not what most people think it is – sitting around cross-legged chanting and humming. My meditation classes are practiced while sitting on a chair, and I guide people through some specific actions and thought processes to calm the mind. True meditation is stopping your thoughts and being in the silence. Normally your mind will not allow this silence to happen, but this can be learned quite quickly with regular practice of the type of meditation taught through my classes.

What are the benefits of meditation?

There's a large and growing body of research finding people who meditate regularly gain improved attention and concentration, reduced levels of anxiety, and an overall improved sense of wellbeing. And these benefits seem to be felt after a relatively short amount of practice. Just 10 minutes twice a day is all you need to put aside to practice Sahaja Yoga meditation, and within a matter of a few short weeks you’ll start recognising the wonderful changes within yourself that practicing meditation can bring.

Who attends your classes?

Lots of different people attend my classes – young people to retirees, men and women and people from various cultural backgrounds. Some come to improve their health and wellbeing, others seeking to connect with their inner self.

What are the benefits of your classes?

Encouraging people to meditate daily and then coming together once a week for a collective meditation helps in starting and maintaining a regular meditation practice. At classes we also discuss how to overcome any obstacles they might have to their meditation, how to clear off their stress of the day and come back to being in a balanced state. Sometimes we also watch videos and listen to CDs to help us continue to progress our meditation practice.

How do people attend your class?

Here in Toowoomba, we run meditation classes at the Toowoomba City Library on Tuesdays: Intermediate class from 9.30-11am and Beginners class from 11.30am-12.30pm, and new Beginner classes will start on Sundays, 10am - 11:30am from 7 January 2018. Each year classes run for four terms of 8-10 weeks each, with a break in between. Anyone can join the beginners class at any time and no bookings are required.

Outdoor gyms are a great way to get active while enjoying the great outdoors.  Check out an outdoor gym at a park near you:
