Restorative Yoga Workshop
with Jessica Dewar
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: Saturday, Nov 17th, 2.00pm - 4.00pm

Tickets are strictly limited (only 12 places available).

Christmas Kirtan with Sun Hyland
A Christmas Charity Event for Cancer Council Victoria
Christmas is around the corner! And this year we decided to celebrate the end of 2018 with a deeply moving Kirtan evening in the studio with Sun Hyland.
Kirtan is a very different kind of music. Based on ancient chants, it has the ability to quiet the mind if listened to with intention. You can think of it as a sing-along.
When we sing together, our breath deepens, vibrations synchronise and we are transported into the moment, at one with the group. And we have the pleasure of Sun Hyland guiding us there.

When: Saturday, December 15th 2018

With Ruth Morgan
Yoga helps teenagers deal with changing emotions, as well as physically nurturing the body's flexibility. It provides a safe, secure, non-competitive environment, a space of deep acceptance where diversity is valued and encouraged. It helps to build self-confidence and offers a framework for teens to see positive shifts, without the pressure of needing to change. It is a joyful space to 'be' and a chance for much needed relaxation. The yoga class is a wonderful platform for teens to work on self-acceptance, self-love and to generally make positive changes in their lives.
When: Tuesday's, Jan 29 - April 02, 2019, 4.30pm - 5.30pm (11 classes)
