In your yoga: are you merely making shapes, or are you shaping your life?
Join this spring yoga workshop series with certified Embodied Flow facilitator Adele Kinghan to awaken greater possibilities in how you breathe, move and create your life.
The body is the vehicle for awakening: cellular breathing and asana to enliven more of who we are.
Yielding – how you relate to yourself and the world around you through the exploration of balancing poses.
Pathways of connectivity – 6 limbs of movement possibility to create stability and ease as we flip our perspective.
Articulation and integration – explore your endocrine glands and backbending poses to open doorways of creative connection.
Stepping into the slipstream of flow – heighten your centres of awareness to create your life in movement.
When our awareness in movement is limited to merely muscle and bone, blocked by unhelpful habits or stagnated through attending to just one movement ‘style’, our energy will not flow optimally. We might feel diseased, disconnected, disempowered or even disembodied. We find ourselves just merely going through the motions in asana, as opposed to excavating the heightened quality of being that is possible in every moment, independent of the drama of life.
Instead of ‘doing yoga poses’, we discover a state of being we call yoga – vast, infinite, omnipotent formlessness experienced in our form.
In this workshop series we will explore and enliven dormant areas within our bodies through meditation, contemplation, asana flows, free movement, experiential anatomy, tantric philosophy and pranayama to reawaken the numinous space within.
Open to all yoga practitioners and teachers who are interested in integrating more experiential anatomy and philosophical teachings into their offerings.
Investment: $225 for all 5 workshops.
Back by popular demand YogawithKylie is facilitating another Inversion workshop in September.
Her July workshop sold out 3 weeks in advance so if you missed out, now is your chance.
Join Kylie and learn the fundamentals around what needs to strengthen and what needs to lengthen in order to become confident with inversions.
Also learn to play, discovering your inner child and letting go of the fear that holds us back.
If you attended the July workshop then this will be a chance to refine and go deeper. If you did not get to the July workshop then this will be a chance to gain the knowledge and confidence required to turn your world upside down
