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.
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.Book Now

Anxiety can be difficult to live with. Yoga and mindfulness can be helpful tools in increasing our resilience and ability to be with the difficult sensations that anxiety can create.
This workshop is for those of us who live with anxiety or care for someone with anxiety and would like some tips about making positive choices to support recovery.
We will briefly look at the way we respond to anxiety & will delve into practices which provide support for increasing our own ‘window of tolerance’. You will leave equipped with practices to immediately integrate into your self-care approach.

Happy Hips Workshop - West Perth
Do you struggle with Lotus, Half Lotus or Leg behind the head postures? This two hour workshop is to get your hips healthy and happy! As people who have had long term structural issues with their knees (bad family histories and non yoga injuries) we have spent a lot of time developing our own home routine for happy hips. This was a necessity as I (Jean) have had knee surgery and Rob has (pre yoga) dislocated his knees twice each side! So we love to take some time to do a happy hips practice to help prevent knee issues. 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 keep your knees healthy! A practical workshop for all levels of students.
