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.

An Introduction to Lu Jong

Lu Jong is a simple yet powerful practice that combines movement, mindfulness and rhythmic breathing to help attain a deep harmony of body, mind and spirit. Its many benefits include mental clarity, balanced emotions, physical stability, a more vibrant energy, and increased resistance to disease. It can be practised in any setting by people of all ages and physical abilities, and requires no particular background or beliefs.

During this special 3-hour workshop led by Dr Deniah Pachai you will be taught the foundational practice of Lu Jong (known as the Five Elements Movements). Once learned, this flowing series of exercises can be done in just ten minutes a day.

You will also be introduced to the theory of the Five Elements as they relate to both you and the universe around you, and be given insight into the subtle energy body where it’s thought disease and illness first manifest. And to keep you on track with daily practice, Dr Pachai will share with you a simple motivational tool that can be applied across any habit you wish to transform.

An Introduction to Yin Yoga

Join Paula Hines for an Introduction to Yin Yoga - a quiet, meditative, floor-based practice where poses are held for several minutes. With Yin Yoga, it’s all about softening and staying. 

In this workshop you will experience some of the fundamental Yin postures and gain an understanding of some of the basic concepts and benefits of Yin Yoga including the characteristics of Yin and Yang nature and the value of a passive practice.

An ideal complement to more dynamic practices which emphasise the muscular “yang” tissues, Yin Yoga allows us to target the deeper “yin” tissues of our bodies. While Yin Yoga might appear easy, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the duration of the poses which are held anywhere from one to ten minutes. Holding the poses for an extended period stimulates the body’s energy pathways (meridians), and gently stretches our deep connective tissue, particularly in the hips, pelvis, and spine.

Benefits of this practice include the promotion of deep relaxation and improvement of flexibility and mobility. In addition, Yin Yoga encourages the cultivation of a calm state of mind.

Suitable for all levels except complete yoga beginners and pregnant students.
