Massage Yoga: Twice the Relaxation
with Wallis Murphy
Join us for this deeply nurturing, healing Massage Yoga practice.
In this 2 hour workshop you will have time to explore the major joints in the body and the surrounding soft tissue with continuous sequencing and longer holds. You can expect to feel strong sensations while stretching in the postures followed by a palpable sense of release when you come into rebound.
Rebound is the transitionary time between poses lying on your back.
The sensations you can experience at this time are not always physical.
The massage element will be applied during the postures and sometimes in rebound. This will both enhance your level of relaxation and encourage greater awareness of where you might be holding unnecessary tension in the body.
The experience is all encompassing with essential oils, music, yoga props, and intelligent sequencing designed to give you deeper awareness of your body and mind. All combined with intuitive touch.
This provides the perfect setting for deep release and relaxation.
Limited spaces that are sure to sell out. Be quick to secure your place.
When: Saturday, 14 Oct 2017, 4.00pm - 6.00pm
Straight Forward: Posture To Prevent Injury
presented by Dr Lisa Brennan, Osteopath
As an Osteopath, I treat people suffering headaches, shoulder pain, stiff necks, sore backs and many other body complaints. These complaints can begin or get exacerbated following an increase in activity, such as yoga, however activity is definitely not the problem! The vast majority of our body complaints stem from our day to day behaviours; how we sit, how we stand, our ergonomics. Straight Forward aims to provide postural education and improve your understanding of your body. With better education, knowledge and awareness, preventable pain and discomfort will be reduced, allowing you to participate in any activity without concern of injury.
When: Coming soon.
