We have all heard that yoga is good for us. Yoga keeps us moving, strong and flexible. We know that yoga is great to calm the mind and to de-stress. We can read the many studies published on yoga’s benefits and we can engage with the practice ourselves to experience the effects of yoga and meditation first hand.
But does yoga stop there? Is that all yoga has to offer us? In other words: did Buddha leave home, belongings and loved ones just to gain a handsome body and a calm mind? The answer is, there’s (luckily) so much more to yoga, and we are coming to your studio to show some awesome techniques and practices that can bring about transformation.
We have all felt the physical impact of emotions, maybe from blushing when falling in love or noticing stress’s ability to create tension in the body. The emotions impact our physical body. This is a two way communication. How we move our physical body effects our emotions, thoughts and has an impact on our feelings of well being, happiness and confidence.
In this 3-day workshop we work on this physical-emotional connection to explore life, the art of being and enable our ability to change anger to passion and impatience to creativity. Are you ready to draw forth your deepest concerns, unanswered questions, packed away thoughts and experiences so that you can truly relax, live happier and be your best? All workshops are created to suit all levels of yoga practitioners. Whether you have been practising on the yoga mat two thousands times or you still haven’t unwrapped the mat, this workshop is for you. We look forward to welcome you all for a special yogic journey!
