Students often opt for a private class, to build confidence, before coming to a timetabled slow / flow session.   In this course we will deconstruct a flow class –  the warm-up, vinyasa, standing and balancing poses through to backbends, inversions and cooling floor work.  We will feel our way into poses and flows, adjust poses to fit our body, explore self-study, meditation, movement and breath and gain confidence to join timetabled classes and/or create a home practice.
We will ensure the practice serves you and
build your confidence to get on the mat.
No Previous yoga knowledge is required for these well supported, trauma sensitive, courses.  Great for those who prefer a more intimate setting to a group class to get started.
Perfect for beginners.  
Perfect for yin students keen to add flow to their practice.
Perfect for any student keen to revisit the foundations of postures and flow.

 

 

 

Tune In – Yoga & Cello
Restorative yoga and live Cello

Saturday 14th March
Time: 7:30 – 9:45 pm
Investment: $65 (20% discount for members)
Teacher: Ling Tan   Cellist: Deb Adelin

Join Ling for an evening of restorative yoga, accompanied by live cello music played by Deb.

Ling will lead a series of gentle lying-down postures using blankets, bolsters and other yoga props, to melt away tension in the body and soothe your nervous system to a state of calm.

Deb will play music she composed for ‘the perpetuation of love’, to lead you into a sweet meditative state.

This harmony, along with breath, prayer, poetry, healing, intention-setting, will help you drop into a greater state of consciousness.

This immersion will conclude with a blissfully long relaxation-savasana-meditation so you can enjoy and soak in the deeply moving sounds of the cello.

You will go home with your hearts moved and awakened, bodies easeful and light,  souls tuned in and uplifted…

All welcome.
No experience required.
Come in comfortable clothes.
Bring a pen and paper / journal.

 

***

Do you know:

The deep resonance of the cello creates wave patterns measurable and equivalent to brain pattern alpha waves (8 to 12 Hz), present when our brains are in idling default-states typically created when we’re daydreaming or consciously practicing mindfulness or meditation. In this state, we can not only listen with our whole body, but tap into powerful healing channels.

Kirtan

A Free Community Event to Celebrate our 4th Birthday

Live music, Chanting, Mantra & Joy

Wednesday 25th March
Time: 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Investment: Free Community Event
Teacher: Heidi Trigar and Band

In celebration of The Retreat’s 4th Birthday, let’s fill the studio with community, music, chanting, mantra and joy.

In yoga, we practice Bhakti as a way to enter into the devotion of our Inner Truth. One way to explore this path is by Mantra and Kirtan.

Kirtan is an ancient form of Bhakti Yoga. 

In the art of Kirtan, we chant the names of Deities over and over again to a melody and often changing tempo.

‘When we practice repetition, the essence of the particular deity we are chanting to begins to resonate and infuse into the core of our being and we create a portal for transformation through the energy of the Deity’.

It is a deeply meditative practice and can be transcendent, joyful and fun!

Join us for this uplifting celebration and stay for a cuppa with friends.

Everyone is welcome, bookings are essential.

Many of us are living in prolonged ‘fight or flight’ mode… we’re stressed out!  this means our adrenalin and cortisol levels are high, keeping us in our sympathetic nervous system.  We’ll use restorative yoga to help us engage the relaxation response and shift into our parasympathetic ‘rest and digest’ state and experience less tension in the body, more freedom in the breath, more spaciousness of the mind and experience a sense of peace and wholeness.  Learning how to consciously relax can be life changing.  The more we practice it, the easier it becomes to stay grounded and calm, even in challenging circumstances.

Held in the small studio room while class runs in the main room.

No Previous yoga knowledge is required for these well supported, trauma sensitive, courses.
Great for those who prefer a more intimate setting to a group class to get started.
