The Fire Within & Within the Embers

The Fire Within:

This workshop is an asana and pranayama practice where we learn to create the power, focus, and heat to burn away our doubts and live an exponential life.  The practice is strong but is designed to be accessible to all levels so whether you are new to yoga or an experienced yogi, there will be a practice applicable for you.  At the completion of the practice, we will do a silent meditation and integrate the asanas with our breath and mind so that we can leave empowered and make 2019 our best year yet!

Within the Embers:

This yin-inspired workshop is about going deep and releasing the tension and finding the calming energy in our practice.  We will work through the shoulders, hips and spine and help release the deeper recesses of the body.  Practice will conclude with a mediation to integrate the effects of the mind, body and breath so that we can emerge relaxed, focused, and ready to make 2019 the time to be in the present and live the life we are destined for.

This workshop is for all levels and can be practiced by new comers and experienced yogis  looking to slow down and be revitalized.

Finding Space: Let's Get Hippy

Finding Space: Let's Get Hippy

A common request in yoga classes is doing poses that focus on the hips. This workshop will focus on the pelvis and SI joints and teach us to balance, strengthen, and stabilize in order to create a unified experience in the body.  This workshop is open to anyone searching for poses that can be used to safely stretch and strengthen the hips.  

What you can expect, is a workshop that gives you practical ways to focus on inner workings of postures that you will see in yoga classes and learn to do them with integration and strength as the focus.  So instead of just opening the hips and potentially creating injuries in the future; we stretch and strengthen, as a 2 part system.

This workshop is open to all yoga levels and is a great way to learn deeper awareness in the body.  Added bonus, learn to release stress and emotion and see how you can leave refreshed, open, aware, and ready to take on the world with a renewed mind, body, and spirit.

Stretch and CHILL

Stretch and CHILL

I am doing a Koha yoga event for men and women to come and learn how to add yoga to your life. We will be doing this outside, at 49 Manawa Drive. You can come down and find out how Yoga can change your life, have a beer/Kombucha with a mate, and create a community of people who stretch, and support each other. It will be a 45 minute session, just enough to get the body feeling great and clear the mind for an awesome weekend.

This event will be broadcast LIVE on Facebook so if you would like to join in through that, it is open to all!

There are no egos, no worries about how flexible or inflexible you are. This is about doing yoga and having a beer/Kombucha afterwards. Beginners are highly encouraged to show up...This is open to anyone who wants to attend, who follows these rules.

Here are the rules:
1. Koha
2. Bring ONE beer/Kombucha to have AFTER the session to build community and chat. This isn’t about getting a six pack and downing the lot, it’s about enjoyment and hanging out after, sharing stories and good times.
3. Have fun and feel great


Here is the best part....if you can’t make it in person, the Yoga session will be streamed LIVE on my Facebook page. So you can practice the yoga from anywhere and then enjoy your Friday evening. See you in person or live!

Special shout out to Hamish Macpherson for making this come together, offering his place to do the Yoga, and a chilly bin to keep your beer/Kombucha cold for after your stretch. See you Friday
