Friday: 10 am - 12:30 pm - Magic Bandhas
How do I jump thru and jump back?! How do I do handstands?! When will I float?! The seemingly magic of bandhas that allows us to fly is a gradual process that is developed over time with steady practice. But, if we can’t understand the basic physics of activating our core, we can remain stuck to the earth indefinitely. In this workshop we will break down individual elements that allow us to experience weightlessness in all elements in our practice.

Friday: 2.30pm - 5.00pm - Killer Arm Balances
Circus Tricks! The fun stuff that we used to do with our bodies as indestructable tykes. We used to be so much more comfortable being upside down when we were kids, and so much closer to the ground. Use your yoga practice in a way that can help you defy the laws of gravity again… as a big kid. Moving through a guided practice, firmly grounded in the breath and the bandhas, we will stop and explore the parts of the practice allowing us to move into arm balances. Working with partners, balancing yourself on your hands in challenging positions is guaranteed to make you laugh. All levels, all styles of practitioners.

Saturday: 10 am - 12:30 pm - Ashtanga Rocks
Bust out of the traditional rules and add a little Rock & Mantra to your practice! Let’s flow through the Vinyasa System to the rockin beats of Gannon’s funky playlist. Ohhhhhh Yeeeeeeaaahhhhh!!!

Saturday: 2.30pm - 5.00pm - Opening your Lotus - Elements of Sitting
For many of us, putting ourselves into Padmasana is NOT easy. And sitting there comfortably for more than 60-seconds can be like a Tapas practice of will and determination. This class will use a sequence of seated asanas to slowly, slowly free the restricted parts of the body that need to be loose to comfortably come into Padmasana and sit in peace. We can then use this new Asana, or seat, to ground ourselves for pranayama and meditation. Not an easy task! All levels welcome.

Space is limited, your place will be confirmed upon receipt of payment. Workshops open to all levels - beginners, advanced practitioners, teachers, those with injuries and pregnant mamas are all very welcome.
