Sound Bath Immersion: A Story of the Senses

with Mona Rujis

Close your eyes and open your ears as we journey into sound and the senses.

Mona Ruijs will facilitate a sound immersive experience with gongs, quartz crystal bowls, Himalayan singing bowls and various other sound tools that are designed to induce states of profound physical relaxation, meditation and general wellbeing.

Lying down on mats you will be saturated and cocooned in the live sounds as you enter inside the wonderful world of the sound bath. The joy of a sound bath is the opportunity for you to lay, listen deeply with your whole body and go inwards, as you may access a consciousness that lies between sleeping and waking. Here you may be transported to states of stillness, meditation, bliss, altered states of awareness, and self-healing.

Sound bath participants variously report powerful bodily sensations and brain states often accompanied by creative thought, rich imagery, insights, and feelings of rest and timelessness. This unique composition of frequencies and harmonics produces a soundscape that washes over you, with the intention to release bodily tension and produce a relaxation response lowering stress, cortisol and adrenaline levels.

We invite you to explore new ways of listening and responding, as the ear hears, the brain listens and the body senses vibrations.

Limited to just 12 spaces.

When: Saturday July 27, 4.00pm - 5.15pm
Investment: $47.00 +GST

Restorative Yoga Workshop

with Katrina Ellis

Nurture your body, mind, and soul with an afternoon of profound relaxation and stillness through restorative yoga

During this 2 hour session, you will be guided using bolsters, blocks, and blankets to assist in bringing your body into a state of complete relaxation. You will learn to comfortably maintain variations in asana over longer periods of time (between 5 - 15 minutes). Developed in combination with deep restorative breathing, this practice will help you to let go physically, emotionally, and mentally to replenish your energy levels.

The profound state of relaxation we enter during a restorative yoga session calms the nervous system, balances our heart rate, and regulates the functioning of our internal organs. It helps to reduce symptoms of depression, chronic fatigue and anxiety, and can improve sleep patterns.

When: Sunday, Aug 18th, 2.00pm - 4.00pm
Investment: $39 +GST

Tickets are strictly limited (only 12 places available).

Props for Props:  Aiding & Enhancing Your Practice

with Poppy Cracknell

STRAP in for this 90-minute BLOCK of time where you will learn to BOLSTER your enjoyment of yoga. ;-)

Have you ever been to a yoga class and felt overwhelmed and confused by all the props that are often used? Blocks, straps, bolsters, blankets… It can be a little daunting and as a result we steer clear of them.

BUT, when used properly, a yoga prop can offer you wonderful support to aid and enhance your overall experience by helping you to access poses on a deeper level. The result – an accelerated yoga practice.

That is why we developed the Props for Props Workshop. We want to teach you WHY we use props, HOW they can help you, and WHEN to use them.

Join us for this 90-minute workshop and take a deep dive into the tangible essentials of yoga.

When: Saturday Aug 24, 11.00am - 12.30pm

Yoga for Flexibility

with Jessica Dewar

Do you experience?

  • Painfully tight hips and hamstrings

  • Difficulty folding forward

  • Tension in the knees

  • Tightness in the groin

  • Stiffness in the quadriceps

If so, then this is the perfect workshop for you.

You will learn key techniques to:

  • Release tension in those super tight spots

  • Relieve pain due to built up stiffness in the muscles and joints

  • Improve sleep

  • Improve your overall flexibility to regain ease of movement in your body

Until you have experienced what it feels like to work with every muscle in the body, you cannot understand what it feels like to experience deep relaxation. Added to your practice will be a guided meditation unlocking any remaining tension you are consciously or unconsciously holding onto.

Learn how to truly listen to your body and what it needs to ease pain, reduce stress and improve mobility. Life changing lessons you can take with you anywhere you go.

Perfect for people of all levels of experience.
