Start your path to good health and wellness

It's never too late to try out yoga!

Our next Foundation Basics yoga course starts the week beginning 22nd July

Our 4 week course is a structured program designed to introduce you to the yoga basics.

We’ll take you through a series of exercises/poses which will get all your joints and muscle areas moving.

We teach you to work within your capabilities and range of movements and provide alternatives to poses to suit everyone.

You don’t have to be already fit or flexible to do yoga and anyone of any age can benefit from this course.

You will learn how to release tension in your body, relax your mind and treat your body well!

Price varies according to how many classes you want to attend each week.

Sound healing session

Join us for a sound healing session with Barbara Jackson

Sunday 26th May 2 - 3:30pm

Want an energy boost? Need to de-stress?

Allow the calming sounds of a crystal bowl sound healing session to relax and refresh you.

The pure resonance from the crystal ‘singing’ bowls raises your vibrations and releases blocked energy. It is healing at a deep level and instills a sense of deep relaxation and inner peace. It can create a profound sense of well-being.

The heart rate, respiratory system and brainwaves change to a slower rhythm as you listen to the harmony of the sounds. Neuro-chemicals are activated and the autonomic nervous system is balanced.

Barbara is an experienced Crystal Sound Therapist who facilitates group sound healing sessions at retreats/workshops. 

We’re delighted to welcome Barbara back for another of her popular sessions. You can read more about her and sound healing on Barbara’s website: www.sublimesoundhealing.com.au

This sound session is a combination of guided meditation, voice toning and a sound healing experience, where Barbara plays her crystal bowls and other instruments.

Participants are invited to lie on a mat and take full advantage of the sound healing in a relaxed way.

All welcome – no yoga experience necessary.

Watch these videos to get a taster of what the crystal bowls sound like and to learn more about the crystal bowls and sound vibration.

Please bring a mat, blanket, pillow as desired, to make yourself comfortable.

Booking in advance is required to secure your place.
Cost: $30

Business talks

Peter recently did a short talk and demonstration at a local business group, Wild Fig Service Alliance.

This was a short presentation for business owners on dispelling the myths around yoga (that you have to be flexible is the biggest myth).

He also showed participants some simple, practical exercises that can be done at your desk – designed to calm and quieten the busy, stressed mind and release tension from the head, neck and shoulders.

So good for taking a refreshing break from meetings and hunching over your keyboard!

If you’re interested in getting Peter to come and talk at your workplace or organisation or to arrange corporate yoga sessions, please contact us:

Hot yoga is back!

Now the cooler weather is with us, we're switching the heaters on for Tracey's classes.

Join us for a warm steady flow class on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7am and Saturdays at 8am.

Radiant heat is emitted from the Far Infrared heaters (FIR) which reaches right into your muscles and connective tissue, loosening them, enabling you to relax and stretch more easily as well as easing existing injuries, as it heats you from the inside out.

The heat also enables the release of toxins quickly from your body and helps to balance the hormonal system.

It’s not a burning heat, but more akin to feeling the gentle sun, warm on your skin.

It’s a great way to ease out aches and pains and get your day off to a wonderful start.

 

Come along and try it out if you haven’t experienced it before – Tracey will make sure you have a great class!
