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

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

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.

YogArt for Young Adults

It was such a great experience to teach yoga to this group.  They were an attentive and focused group of students who approached their yoga with a willingness to learn and refine the poses.  

Milla took them through a 'dirty pour' and they produced some beautiful art works which you can see on the Facebook page 

YogArt 7-12yrs

This group of students worked really consistently on the yoga mat with Sharon to explore yoga poses through a story.  The poses were quite advanced and required the group to listen, watch demonstrations and then apply themselves to take the shape of each pose.  They had to feel what was happening in their body to produce  the interpretation of the pose that worked with their bodies.  It required a lot of focus!

In the art room Kate worked with them to produce some spectacular artworks and colourful headdresses adorned with feathers.   They were a pleasure to teach and expressed themselves enthusiastically and willingly.

YogArt 3-6yrs - Imagination and Art running wild

Wow!  What a lot of work it is to organise this event but what a lot of fun and reward it creates for us as teachers.  The 3-6yrs group really let their imagination run wild in the yoga and art sessions.  They were enthusiastic and produced a huge body of work and learnt a lot of yoga poses after going on an adventure with Kooki the Kookaburra.

Adults (young and young at heart)  1.00pm-3.30pm

The young adults classes is open to adults of any age so if you would like to join in we are doing a one hour yoga session followed by an art session.  The art session is a 'dirty pour', a scaled down version of a resin artwork which we will mix and pour onto a canvas.  The result if unpredictable and abstract and it requires no 'artistic talent'.  Just come along and have fun with it.

January 2019 Intensive

Coming onto the mat each day allows us the opportunity to put aside external concerns and be present in a much more significant way than coming to class once a week.  Committing to classes is fantastic, but devoting time to attend the Intensive will take you deeper into your practice and present new opportunities for learning  that only come from this extended format.  I invite you to come along and commit to looking deeper at your practice, regardless of your class level or experience.  Everyone is welcome.
