The Yoga Space Workshops
The Yoga Space holds regular workshops presented by experienced yoga teachers who are all experts in their respective fields.
Workshops are a wonderful way to get more out of your practice, by deepening your understanding of the philosophies and techniques that comprise your yoga practice.
Nadi Shodana: Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga's Second Series
This workshop which will introduce you to theory and practice of Intermediate Series. The workshop is suitable for anyone who is practicing past navasana (boat posture) and will explore the important gatekeepers in primary series, the first third of intermediate series (mainly backbending) and how to safely deepen your backbends and prepare for ‘drop backs’ during primary series.
The workshop gives us space to discuss the practicalities of Intermediate series – when, how, potential injuries and will highlight importance of practicing primary series correctly as the foundation for Intermediate series postures. Please bring your questions.
I have noticed that sometimes seeing the postures that lay ahead and trying them helps to make sense of the postures you currently do and encourages a non attachment to ‘progression’. We will explore how the postures we practice regularly contain many of the elements that intermediate series postures contain, just in a more physically intense manner. Therefore understanding regardless of whether we start that series or not, we are practicing many of these movements already in the postures we do each day.

Join Jean Byrne + Amy Cleghorn for a weekend to rest deeply.
*Option for day retreat on the Saturday 9-6:30pm*
This retreat is intended to support you to live your life fully, but with energy for what matters most to you.

If you have found yourself in this space, sick often, with adrenal fatigue, tired, low on energy – then this retreat is for you. If you are glorifying busy, but in your heart know your current path is not sustainable, then be sure to take this weekend to reset and move forwards connected to your breath.
This weekend retreat is for anyone who wishes to take the time to slow down, to breathe, be present, eat nourishing food and sink into practice. Sessions will be dedicated to yin yoga, gentle slow flow vinyasa, restorative
Held at the serene and rustic Sivananda Ashram in Beaconsfield. Just 20 minutes from Perth city this ashram attracts visitors devoted to spiritual life.
Give Gratitude Immersion
Join Kate Carter in this special workshop on cultivating gratitude.
Paying gratitude is a radical approach to sustained, lived, equilibrium. Instead of focusing on what we don’t have we are encouraged to honour all that is right here now in our lives. Often just by doing this we begin to tap into the subtle layers of all that is in and around us. It can bring us into greater contact with the simplicity of the changing seasons, the people around us and the unique life we have. Come together as a group and we will nut through ways to approach paying gratitude and build a plan to purposefully pay gratitude for an entire month. Learn how to draw gratitude into your regular yoga practice and seal it off with a yin session.Book Now
