Upcoming Workshops - 2nd edition

Whilst classes offer instruction and guidance, Workshops and Intensives offer the opportunity to immerse ourselves more deeply, to observe more acutely and to access the intelligence of the body over a sustained period of time.  Workshops are important to build a knowledge base and have a deeper experience to take into our classes and our own practice.

The Yoga Room is offering the following workshops:

Women's Series Workshops:

Saturday 10 November

10am-1.00pm - Yoga to ease through menopause and beyond 

Learn the asanas that give energy when needed or calm the nervous system and adrenals to find balance during this transition.

1.15pm-1.45pm Talk by Dr Jo Braid on hormonal health (open to participants who attend either of these workshops)

2.00pm-5.00pm - Yoga for a Woman's Cycle.

Practising asanas that support a healthy cycle before, during and after menstruation can relieve common symptoms like cramps, lower back pain, dizziness and PMS.  This workshop provides essential knowledge for all female yoga practitioners to honour their cycle and prepare for a healthy transition to menopause.

Cost:  $40 each or $70 for both workshops.

January Intensive 23-26 January 2019

After the Christmas break an Intensive is the ideal way to prepare for the term and the year ahead.  The New Year affords us a clean slate to begin with a fresh outlook.  To allow ourselves the time to observe, be patient and truly learn from the intelligence of the body gives us the opportunity to look at our patterns and habits, and to make space for change and progress.  It is a gift to ourselves.

Wednesday 23, Thursday 24, Friday 25 and Saturday 27 January

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - 6.30am-8.00am and 5.45pm-7.15pm

Saturday 8.30am-10.00am and 4.00pm-5.30pm

Morning Asana will have emphasis on active practice

 Evening Asana will have emphasis on restoratives and Pranayama.

Cost for 8 sessions:  $140.

Cost for 4 sessions:  $85.

Cost for 2 sessions:  $48.

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.

 Saturday 29 June  1.00-4.00pm

Womens' Series Workshop:  Yoga for a Woman's Cycle

Saturday 3 August  1.00-4.00pm   

Home Practice Workshop

Saturday 1 September 1.00-2.00pm

Sound Bath Meditation with White Raven Healing

Weekend Workshop

Saturday 30 November 1.00-4.00pm

Womens' Series Workshop:  Yoga for a Smooth Transition

What's on this Week

Term 2 started this week

If you haven't enrolled or couldn't get to class this week, don't stress.  Start next week.  We allow students to 'make up' three missed classes during the current term.  Attend a class of the same level, if possible.

Sunday 5 May - 9.30-11.00am - Relax and Restore Class

This class on the first and third Sunday of each month will focus on restorative yoga, pranayama and relaxation.  Casual attendance $23.  All levels welcome.

2.00-4.00pm Essential Oils Workshop - Emotional Health

The workshop on Sunday is around oils for emotional health.  Come along and learn which oil is useful for emotions such as forgiveness, courage and procrastination.  A small charge will be made if you choose to participate in the practical session using the Feelings Kit which encourages the process of letting go of old patterns and emotions, forgiving those who have hurt you and going forward.  Everyone welcome.  If you have any questions, bring them along. 

New Class: Yoga to Restore and Renew, Pramayama and Meditation

1st and 3rd Sunday of each month 9.30-11.00am

I am excited to add a new class to the timetable.  On the first and third Sundays of each month I will teach a class centered around yoga to restore and renew, learning to sit quietly and pranayama.  We will explore these themes over the 5 weeks of term and you are welcome to attend casually ($23) or pay for the 5 weeks at the beginning of term ($100).  Please note that due to the number of classes each term, students are unable to make up a missed Sunday Class.  

We start on Sunday 5 May and everyone is welcome.

10 Week Introductory Course commences 2 May 7.00-8.15pm

As yoga practitioners we know the benefits of coming to a yoga class each week.  No matter what age we are, how our body is working or what is going on in our busy lives, yoga allows us the time to come into the present and recalibrate.  We are overloaded with information and yoga is one way of taking time for ourselves.  

The ideal way to start Yoga is with the Intro Course.  If you know anyone who might benefit from this course, please direct them to our website.  I am happy to have a chat to anyone interested.

Steph, Fiona, Sharon and myself are looking forward to seeing you all next week.  I hope the Easter bunny had a few eggs for you!

Open Casual Class Wed 24 April 9.30am

All students are welcome to attend the casual class tomorrow at 9.30am.  Suitable for all levels, this is the last general class for the Easter break.

Term 2 commences Monday 29 April.  Enrolment is open on the website www.orangeyogaroom.com.au or pay in class in week 1.

We look forward to seeing all our students back on the mat next Monday after a relaxing Easter break.

This week is the last week of Term 1 followed by the Easter Holidays.  During the holidays we will have one casual class per week, which will be open to all students of all levels, as well as YOGART: Yoga and Art for Children and Young Adults.  Children and adults of all ages love this workshop and bookings can be made on line or by contacting me.
