Home Practice Workshop Sunday 7 April 10am-1.00pm

Coming to class each week puts life into perspective.  All our issues and concerns still exist when we walk out the door, but for the duration of the class, and for some time afterwards, life seems a little lighter.  The mind is a littler quieter.

 Initially, we have to learn the asanas, or poses.  Practising at home helps the progression of learning. As we progress we should be happy with small improvements, and keep on learning and practising.

Having a regular practice, as well as coming to class, gives us the opportunity to put aside external concerns and to be an observer.  Instead of always doing, thinking and being busy, when we step on the mat we learn to watch our thoughts, emotions and reactions as they rise up and present themselves.  We become more of an observer, or a watcher, as we are practising each asana. 

The real benefit of a home practice is the opportunity to watch ourselves. It teaches us to live in the present moment where fear, anxiety and stress don’t actually exist.  With persistence, the regular, steady, consistent practice of Yoga brings peace and poise into all parts of our lives.

Students of all levels are welcome to join this workshop.  We will look at:

Why Practice?

What to Practice;

When to use equipment;

Categories or types of asanas;

Sequencing poses to gain a certain effect;

Overcoming Procrastination;

The necessity and beauty of making Yoga part of your life.

Cost:  $45 which includes notes.

Women's Series Workshops - Yoga for a Woman's Cycle Sat 29 June 1.00-4.00pm

A yoga practice is not a ‘one size fits all’  approach. As practitioners we need to adjust our yoga practice to support ourselves during times when the body, mind and emotions are moving through transitions.  Practising asanas that stabilise before menstruation, poses to restore during menstruation and poses to rebalance your system post menstruation, will support a healthy cycle before.  The workshop provides essential knowledge for all female yoga practitioners to honour their cycle.  It is especially relevant for those preparing for pregnancyor with issues around menstruation. The workshop will look at the asanas to set up a healthy regular cycle, asanas for symptoms like PMS, dizziness and lower back pain.

Cost for workshops:   $40 which includes notes and sequences.

 Bookings essential.  Place your name on the list at The Yoga  Room or contact me

Workshops for 2019

Workshops are a great way to increase your knowledge of the practice of yoga and to take time out to immerse yourself into your practice more deeply.  A longer format often allows us time to experience and see things about yoga and ourselves, that we can't access in a class format.  Please consider coming to any of the following.
