Deep & Free: Hips & Twists
Sunday, February 12, 2023 
12pm - 3pm

Your issues are living within your tissues. - Shakti

For most of us, opening our hips and unlocking our spine is a deep and long process. The benefits and rewards of learning how to safely open our hips and spine last a lifetime, and maybe even lifetimes. :)

Deep & Free is for all practitioners of Yoga and life. You will learn how to co-activate muscle groups and joint complexes, which we call bandha. This practice will create stability and mobility in your joints, while lengthening and strengthening your muscular system, often at its end range of motion, which is the most vulnerable position. Learning how to stabilise and breathe in these deep postures is essential to safety and longevity in your practice and body.

Deep & Free is all levels and great for students and teachers with injuries or with more restricted ankles, knees, hips and spines.

Fluid Power: Spine & Core
Sunday, February 19, 2023
12pm - 3pm

Align your spine with the great divine. - Shiva

Learning how to align your spine is the main goal of asana in the Hatha Yoga system. When you open and align your spine, the energy within your body and nervous system flows with ease and grace, creating health and vitality in your organs, glands and musculoskeletal systems.

Fluid Power is for everyone who has a spine. You will learn how to mobilise and stabilise your spine with precision and ease. The main focus and outcome for this workshop is to teach you how to move from your core without locking your core. I will be teaching you extremely important techniques and practices, which includes specific breathing techniques, and joint activation and stabilisation techniques. This workshop is all levels from new students to experienced practitioners.

This potent workshop is the Art and Heart of Vinyasa Yoga practice. Not to be missed!

Awaken & Ignite: Shoulders & Backbends
Sunday, February 26, 2023
12pm - 3pm

Your Heart is Free; Have the Courage to Follow it. - William Wallace

Many years ago, when I was searching for greater meaning and purpose within my life, people would randomly say, just follow your heart. The interesting thing was no-one ever showed me or taught me how to follow my heart. Lots of advice with no practical explanation or guidance. Until one day, I walked into a Yoga studio and a particular teacher walked into the room and spoke directly to my heart, my values and the subconscious limiting negative core belief systems that I was running. After that one class, I returned the next day and continued to practice daily for two years before he taught me how to teach Yoga. The rest is history.

If you dread backbends, then the chances are your shoulders and tight and restricted. You will learn how to open the shoulder girdle safely and gently. You will also learn how to awaken and stabilise your shoulder girdle, forearms and wrist complex, which are essential when practicing Vinyasa Yoga. The next step is learning how to allow the front of your body to open and lengthen without collapsing. This is where we learn how to breathe and trust the process of opening our vulnerable hearts of the world around us.

Awaken & Align is an all levels workshop. If you are having a hard job trusting or accessing your intuition, then this workshop is for you.

You will detect your mission and purpose in life, not invent it. - Viktor Frankl

Your mind will invent, your heart will present, which one are you willing to listen to?
