Beginners Yoga Workshop

If you’re new to yoga, chances are you’re feeling a bit unsure about the postures and breathing. Often during classes there’s not enough time to explore the elements of each posture in sufficient detail to ensure you’re doing it properly and not forming bad habits. Wouldn’t it be great if you could slowly and carefully work through the basic yoga postures and sequences with the opportunity to stop and ask questions? Now’s your chance!

Focused on the fundamentals of yoga, this comprehensive workshop is designed to boost your confidence and equip you with the tools you need to make the very most of your yoga practice. Led by Kavi Kumar, the workshop will begin with an introduction to the ancient roots of yoga. You will then explore the key postures in a typical beginners class including sun salutations, seated exercises and twists - carefully going through each asana (pose) with a detailed explanation of alignment, breath and technique to help you achieve ease, stability and safety in your yoga practice.

Suitable for all ages and fitness levels. No previous yoga experience necessary. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.

One Flow Zen - Winter Yoga & Qi Gong

In this first of four seasonal workshops led by Wilmien Bos we will combine Qi Gong standing postures and exercises with gentle yoga sequences to cleanse and re-charge the flow of Qi (vital energy) in the Ren Mai Channel (Conception Vessel) and Du Mai Channel (Governing Vessel). This subtle way of practising works to promote inner stillness, mindfulness and emotional calm, and enhances our natural defence system by balancing the yin-yang elements of the body.

Each workshop in this series relates to a specific season and includes detailed information on exercises which can be practiced daily until the next seasonal change when a new set of exercises are introduced.

Meditation & Mindfulness

Join Doretta Natalucci for this calming and enlightening introduction to meditation and mindfulness designed to give you invaluable tips and techniques for finding inner peace amongst the chaos of daily life.

Meditation and mindfulness are very much in the press these days - mainly due to the many benefits derived from regular practice such as increased energy levels, reduced levels of stress, improved concentration and better sleep quality. Regular meditation can also inspire you to develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness – qualities that benefit both you and those around you!

This workshop is ideal for beginners as well as experienced practitioners looking to diversify and deepen their meditation experience.

Tai Chi Qigong - Six Week Introductory Course

Give your New Year a boost with an introductory course in the ancient Chinese exercise system of Qigong.

Taught by Tony Austin, Shibashi Tai Chi Qigong is a simple, beautiful form that through a sequence of flowing movements stretches the body and allows Qi (life energy) to develop and flow. The sequence gently exercises all of the major muscle groups in the body and enables the student to coordinate their movement and breathing to harmonise body and mind. The form can be learned by anyone regardless of age and ability and is practised by more than 10 million people worldwide.

In this six-week course you will learn:

  • The 18 movements of the Shibashi form
