Teacher: Nadege DeBax

Join Nadege for a 2.5 hour exploratory inner journey to find the answers deep in your heart. We will unveil the obstacles to your blossoming and guide you to realign with your Higher Self and consciously embody you dharma (your truest self, your profound calling.)

This extended practice is an opportunity to bask in a serene atmosphere where you can feel supported and guided to turn within. If you want to connect with your inner wisdom and find clarity around the path of action moving forward in your life – this is for you!

The evening includes pranayama, meditation, an extended Yin Yoga practice, and journaling prompts designed to expand your introspection and assist you to reflect on the insights you receive. You won’t have to share your writing.

Let’s connect on a deeper level within and unfold into the highest expression of your being.

Nadege is an experienced yoga instructor who has used meditation, yoga and journaling to access answers within herself for the last 12 years. She knows that deep within ourselves we truly do hold all of the answers to life’s unfoldings, we just need to make space to hear them.

Bring your favourite journal, comfy clothes and a pen.

An Evening of Yoga in French

Saturday 9th November
Time: 7:00-9:00pm
Investment: $50 (20% discount for members)
Teacher & native speaker: Nadege DeBax

Our French Yoga is back due to popular demand and the fun we had last time!

Whether you have some basics in French, speak fluently, are currently learning or just love the sound of the French language, come practise in French.

In the same way that languages awaken different parts of our brain and our emotional self, you will experience a different aspect of your yoga practice, and how you relate to your body. As you simply follow-along, you will deepen your awareness, develop your intercultural understanding, and use your language skills through physical activity for optimal learning.

We will begin with a gentle whole body Slow Flow, then cool down with a contemplative Yin practice, followed by a guided imagery meditation.

This will be FUN!  French & Yoga… What’s not to Love?

 

Daily Divine Reset

A Buddhist Approach to Yoga

Sunday 24th November
Time: 12:00 – 3:00pm
Investment: $70 (20% discount for members)
Teacher: Peter Cohen

As much as we all love our regular yoga class… it also feels incredible to practice at home on your own, when you know what to do… 
Bringing all the focus of your practice onto your own actions is divinely personal and empowering.
This is traditionally called Sadhana, or Kriya… the “action” you can take to be more centred, more relaxed, more energised, and more connected with what matters most to you.
That is no small feat, yet can be done… personally… privately… daily…
A practice that includes your personal relationship with…
  • Divinity (the heart of the practice, a concept that inspires awe in you)
  • Breathwork (the engine of the practice, techniques, chanting, and mantra)
  • Movement (the substance of the practice, intimate embodiment with divinity and breath)
Breath-practices will include:
  • Ujjayi (victorious breath)

  • Cleansing breath (spontaneous sighing)

  • Om, Hmmm, Bramari Pranayama (cooling)

  • Kapalabhati (heating)

  • Belly breathing (deep-relaxing, mind-state changing)
Plus practices that enable the preceeding breathwork:
  • Maha Mudra
  • Garuda Mudra
  • Kumbhaka
  • Movements of Classical Hatha Yoga and Tibetan Yoga
You will receive chants from the Buddhist tradition:
  • Om, Mani Padme Hum
  • Om, Ah, Hung
  • Om Vajra Sattvaa Hung (diamond being, medicine buddha)
  • 100 Syllable Mantra (healing mantra)
  • These chants are perfect for people who have never chanted before
Peter Cohen is one of Australia’s most experienced spiritual teachers. Inspired by the tantric essence of traditional Tibetan Yoga and the renowned hatha and vinyasa yogas of T.Krishnamacharya; he is senior accredited in 3 yoga lineages over 2 decades. Together with the nyingma lineage of dzogchen Buddhism, he is a reiki master and Feldenkrais movement specialist.

 

Summer Season

A Yin Immersion

Saturday 30th November
Time: 7:00 – 9:30 pm
Investment: $55 (20% discount for members)
Teacher: Alida Lipton

Summer is the season of light, passion and energy.  It is when the sun shines at its brightest and warmest.  It is a time to honour the sun in all of its glory and acknowledge the infinite source of light within all of us.  As the fire element of summer moves towards its peak, we come together to practice Yin to embrace the fire within and ways to release any build up of heat. 

 

Learn how to create more harmony and balance in your life by understanding the energies that operate within.  Practicing with the rhythms of nature and the seasons, honouring our connection with the earth cycles, we will work on balancing the fire qualities of the incoming summer season.

 

A 2.5 hour Yin practice that will include grounding Pranayama (breath work), Yin poses to release heat within, Yoga Nidra to soothe you into further bliss.  Alida uses sound bowls and drums to accompany the immersion where you will be left feeling balanced, calm and at peace, ready to continue “full steam ahead!!” into the coming summer season.
