Body Love

Feb 19 1-3pm $45 West Perth
The way we relate to our physical appearance, is simply a part of the way we relate to ourselves. Via the media and social conditioning we are subject to unrealistic expectations of how our body is supposed to be. For some of us this can occupy much space leaving us depleted, anxious and perpetually concerned with how we appear.
Together we will examine some of these social expectations, share strategies for finding strength to love & accept ourselves, exactly as we are. We will move through a slow flow, designed to nurture, respect & appreciate our bodies (selves) as we are.
Open to all 16 years & over.
Suitable for yoga teachers interested in body positive teaching. CPD certificates available upon request.

Happy Hips

Mar 18 1-3pm $45 Carine

Do you struggle with Lunging, Squats, Lotus, Half Lotus and their like? This two hour workshop is aimed to get your hips healthy and happy!

Through practice and observing students over the years, Stephen has experienced and seen the challenges of opening the hips. Finding this freedom of the hip allows us to ease pressure from the knees in these postures. That ease may resonate through our practice as we find range and stability through this new opening.

Part restorative, part yin and partly using props to help us out.

From this workshop you can take home ideas to get your own hips happy and help keep your knees healthy!

An engaging workshop for those who can’t do butterfly right through to those trying to slip a leg behind their head!

Give Gratitude

Apr 23 1-3pm $45 Carine

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.

Embodying Archetypes

May 13 1-3pm $45 Carine

Have you ever wondered about the role of deities, natural elements and mythology in modern asana practice? Drawing from Vedic wisdom and storytelling, in this two hour workshop we will playfully explore the ways that asana and bhavana (ideation) form mudras that can build or soften aspects of our character, and connect us with our own nature through archetypal patterning. Have fun as you explore gentle movement with visualisation, finding space within where a poetic opening to personal meaning may be possible. Open to all, this creative, light-hearted experience is guided by senior yoga teacher and certified international yoga therapist Chandrika Gibson.
