Yin, Breath and Sound Healing Sunday 15th March, 10:30-12:30, $35
Yin Yoga is a deep and powerful practice that finds space in the body. During this 2 hour workshop you will be guided through Yin Yoga techniques to open the body from head to toe whilst incorporating simple breathing techniques for a meditative experience.We will be working deeply to open up the energy lines (nadis) to allow maximum benefit for the balance and flow of prana within our bodies.The workshop will have an extended Savasana (Corpse Pose) with a sound healing session from Ash. Once the body has been opened up on a physical and energetic level through the practice of Yin and Breath (Pranayama) the frequencies of sound are able to penetrate the central nervous system relaxing the mind and body.The workshop will be brought to you in a playful and light-hearted way.
During this 2 hour workshops Ash will guide you through:
– Yin Yoga session to open up the energy channels that allow the prana (life force) to flow freely.
– Introduce some basic breathing (pranayama) techniques which will have an effect on energizing, relaxing and healing the body.
– Sound Healing Journey Through the Chakras.Ash has been teaching yoga all over the world for over 20 years – including 10 years in India. She has recently relocated back to the Northern Beach from Byron Bay. “My love for Yin Yoga, Breath linked with Sound Healing has become an essential part of my spiritual practice, and I love to share the knowledge I have learnt along the way”.
Myofascial Release with Tennis Balls Sunday 29th March 2020, 2-4pm, $30
Come and join Maureen for a 2 hour blissful workshop on Myofascial Release using tennis balls. You will learn this technique for the upper body, releasing and lengthening tissues around the lower back, abdomen, shoulders, neck and the lower body, hips, legs and feet.
Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue. It sits just under the skin like a body suit, that wraps most structures within the human body, supporting and protecting as well as weaving through muscle creating lines of inner connectivity through the body. Overtime, this soft tissue can become restricted due to overuse, injury, inactivity, poor form when exercising and can often result in pain, muscle tension and affect the full function and range of motion.
The afternoon will be exploring the technique called Myofascial release (MFR) that uses tennis balls to sustain pressure to loosen and lengthen constricted fascia, break down adhesions between the tissues and softens and realigns them. This will free up muscles and allow easier and more effective movement.
You will leave this workshop with a feeling of releasing tension from muscles, calm and completely relaxed. The session will commence with Pranayama (breathing technique) and end with a guided meditation.
