WORKSHOPS

CHARGE YOUR CHAKRAS with Kaja Troa

SUNDAY 6th August, 1-3pm, Tamarama Surfclub

Colour and warm up your winter with a workshop implementing asana, pranayama and a guided meditation to cleanse, align and ignite all of the chakras located within the body. The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows. Blocked energy within the chakras can lead to illness, sluggish metabolism, lethargy & malaise - so it's important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely. This workshop will begin with a discussion on the chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye & crown), followed by a chakra scanning session, noting imbalances. Once this is established, Kaja will lead you though a yoga practice specifically designed to unblock, recharge & balance your chakras, finishing with relaxing breathing exercises & a guided meditation. 

Cost $40 includes mats & refreshments. Workshop open to everyone. 

Bookings essential.

GROUNDING: FINDING YOUR FEET with Tammy Shemesh

SATURDAY 12th August, 1-3pm, Tamarama Surfclub

In this workshop you will explore a series of standing yoga postures focusing on the activation of the feet. Understanding the mechanics of your feet in yoga and the patterns in your foot health is the first step to establishing a solid foundation in your practice. Finding your feet is a powerful and deeply healing practice for all students from beginners to advanced. Tammy will guide you through some simple experiments on your mat exploring the spiral dynamic in the feet and legs known as Padabandha. This is broadening and lengthening the feet in two directions so that a double spiral extend up the legs and stabilises the opening of the pelvic joints. In turn, this stablises and releases the spine. From these actions it is possible to adjust the position of the pelvis and the knees. The class dialogue will allow you to adapt them to your own body and style of practice. You will end with a long, deep relaxation using grounding essential oils on the soles of the feet.

Cost $40 includes mats & refreshments. Workshop open to everyone.
