Upcoming Workshops at The Yoga Room

Workshops are a great opportunity to increase your knowledge about the practice of Yoga.  The Yoga Room will offer the following workshops for the reminder of the year:

Spring Weekend Workshop

Friday 20 October 5.30pm-7.00pm, Saturday 21 October 4.00pm-5.30pm and Sunday 22 October 8.30-10.30am and 4.30pm-6.00pm

Spring is a time of change and unfolding.  It is a time to leave behind any old unwanted patterns and habits that no longer serve us, and to make way for fresh and more relevant and meaningful choices.  It's a great time to leave the hibernation of winter and renew our commitment to the practice of Yoga to support this seasonal change. Students with 3 months experience of yoga welcome.   Cost $180.  Book at The Yoga Room, on messenger or via website.

Womens Series Workshop (Yoga for a Woman's Cycle) - Saturday 28 October 1.00pm-4.15pm

Learn the benefits of structuring your practice around your cycle to include asanas for symptoms of PMT and specific asanas to support your time of menstruation.   This is open to all levels and is a workshop that looks at the philosophy behind doing a specific practice immediately before, during and just after menstruation to bring about a regular cycle.  We will set up the asanas and look at equipment and sequences to support and nurture you.  Open to students with 3 months experience of yoga.  Cost $50.

Sound Bath Meditation with Paulien from White Raven Healing Saturday 18 November 4.00-6.00pm

Let yourself be taken on a wonderful journey while being immersed by high vibrational sounds of the Neptune Gong, Tibetan and Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls, Shaman Drum, Chimes, Monochord and Channelled Chants that will support and help you to fully let go.

A Sound Bath will bring you into a deep state of relaxation while the sounds of the different instruments will help your body to heal itself and to rejuvenate. We'll finish with a cuppa and some healthy snacks to bring you fully back.  Paulien Gort is an experienced Sound Healer who runs regular Sound Baths in Sydney. Bringing in her experience with shamanic healing, she facilitates powerful shifts on a physical/emotional/spiritual level.  Cost $35.

Womens Series Workshop (Yoga to Support and Tame the Change) Sunday 26 November 9.30pm-1.45pm

We will learn what asanas are beneficial for perimenopause, menopause and post menopause to balance the hormonal system and support the body, mind and spirit through the challenges and changes of this time.  There is a lot to be positive about and Yoga has much to offer in this area. Students with 3 months experience of Yoga welcome.  Cost $70.

Term 2 On line bookings now open

Along with Steph, Fiona and Sharon I would like to thank all our students for their commitment and hard work on the mat during Term 1.  All classes have progressed steadily along the yoga path and it gives us great joy to see individual, as well as class, progression.  Being the teacher in the class when a student goes up into handstand or headstand for the first time after months of preparation, is a very special and rewarding experience.  Keep up your yoga practice.  It will keep you healthy, present in the moment and grateful for all things that come your way.

The Timetable for the April Holidays is above.  Please call me you have any questions - there is always a solution.  

Yours in Yoga,


BKS Iyengar - a video of his life's work - the gift of Yoga.

Here is a link to an old but very valuable film clip which encapsulates Iyengar's work through the years.  Please take time to watch it - it's well worth it.
