Hormone Yoga Therapy Workshop @ Raw Yoga
Oct 28 – Oct 29 all-day

Weekend Seminar of Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) for Women with hormonal imbalance – with certified teacher of HYT Radka Rosanitsch, certified by the author of the special method.

HYT is a natural and holistic method created by a Brazilian psychologist and yoga therapist, Dinah Rodrigues.
HYT consists a series of dynamic yoga exercises (asanas) accompanied by intense breathing techniques (pranayama), energetic level and visualization. Regular practicing reactivates the hormone production of the endocrine glands (ovaries, hypophysis, thyroids and adrenals) in a natural way, helping to harmonize the hormonal system and consequently eliminating the symptoms of low hormone levels.

HYT is effective for all types of hormonal disorders, generally supports fertility, helps strengthen the immune system and to rejuvenate the body and is recommended as a prevention for women after 35year of age.

The seminar is designed for women of all ages who are trying to solve problems related to hormonal imbalance, menopause or premature menopause, infertility due to hormonal imbalance, poor blood circulation in the pelvic area, menstrual disorders, ovarian cysts, lack of thyroid gland and many more.
During the weekend seminar you will learn breathing techniques, warm up exercises and daily series exercises which you will have to practice at home (3-4x weekly), the routine takes about 30 minutes. You will also learn exercises against stress, anti-stress pranayamas and Yoga-Nidra to activate glands and harmonize energy and chakras.

The HYT exercises are suitable for everyone.
No previous yoga experiences is needed!

Myofascial Movement & Meditation with Kylie Harris and Andy Munro @ Om Yoga Studio | Auckland | Auckland | New Zealand

Learn to unlock your movement potential with Kylie Harris (YogawithKylie) and Andy Munro (Empower Wellington).

This 4 hour workshop will move you through the full range of the movement spectrum, releasing tight tissues, blocks within the mind and the body helping to repair, restore and reinvigorate the tissues.
We will begin with meditation to release blocks in the mind and connect with the PNS and our intentions.
Trigger point therapy and gentle movement along the fascial lines will help to decrease the “fuzz” and also areas of stagnation within the tissues.
This will be accompanied by stability work to bring awareness to the areas of dysfunction and how this is blocking your movement and health potential.
We will then pick things up a little and take the body through the full range of motion, bringing in some fun primal movement and bounce to bring elasticity back to the fascia and playfulness back to our practice.
The workshop will end with a short restorative bringing us back into a powerful meditation to end.
The workshop will be co taught by Kylie and Andy, two self confessed anatomy nerds with a passion for movement, meditation and helping you unlock your true potential.

Lunar Namaskar Workshop Series with Nik Robson @ Om Yoga Studio | Auckland | Auckland | New Zealand

I am so excited to return to New Zealand after 8 months teaching at The Practice Bali in Canggu. I am inspired to share our system of Hatha Yoga known as Moon Sun Fire.

I have included a special price for yoga teachers so that these practices will extend to the wider community and for those interested I will do my best to provide ongoing support and mentorship. My heart has gone into these workshops as they include the essence of life lessons and challenges I have overcome on my journey so far.

These events will have a community feel with support from my tribe. I am proud to announce that I will be teaching at next years Wanderlust Festival in Great Lake Taupo. To spread the word I have two tickets to give away to next years event in March. As always Organic Mechanic will be there in support serving free kombucha throughout the weekend and we will give away some OM gear and garments from We’ar Yoga. To win all you have to do is share this event via facebook or post on instagram. Details are at the bottom of the page below the full workshop series description. Thank you for your support. See you soon!

Hatha Yoga Workshop Series:

The Ancient Hatha Yoga text, Gherande Samhita states “Once the moon has been made steady, the sun can be made to rise.”

This workshop series is intended to take you on a journey exploring the lunar side of Hatha yoga practices.

We will utilise the full spectrum of Hatha yoga methods including asana, pranayama, bandha, mudra, mantra and meditation.

With clear intention and respect for these powerful practices we embark on this journey from the dense to the subtle, from dark to light, from fear to love.

STILL LAKE – 18th Nov 11.30-2.00pm
Moving fluidly with the principle of Vinyasa Krama to synchronise mind, body and breath we settle into a state of effortless stillness. As we reconnect to the pure awareness of purusha the mind becomes like a vast still lake perfectly reflecting the light of the moon.

YOGIC SLEEP 18th Nov 7.00-9.00pm
Yoga Nidra and Yin Yoga work together to bring the body to a deep state of relaxation. With the practice of prana dharana we sense and direct energy with the mind. Sankalpa infuses the essence of our intention deep into our subconsious mind.

EARTH WARRIOR 19th Nov 11.30-2.00pm
We are born from the Earth and we return to it when we die. In truth we are never seperate. Cultivating the grounding force of apana vayu at the base of the spine through bandha, kumbhaka and pranayama we grow deep roots. Using the hands as an extension of the heart we practice as an offering to our Earth Mother, Papatuanuku.

SHIVA VISION 19th Nov 7.00-9.30pm
Our third eye is the gateway to one pointed awareness and higher perception. Infusing tantric practices of kriya meditation, mantra and mudra we balance the nadis and cultivate the force of transformation in the naval known as samana vayu.

Yin Therapy – Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop @ Studio Evolve
Nov 18 all-day
Yin Therapy - Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop @ Studio Evolve | Nelson | New Zealand

International yoga teachers Markus and Karin will take you on a journey to “the other half” of yoga based on the teachings of their mentor, yin yoga and anatomy teacher, Paul Grilley. They will discuss the unique therapeutic qualities and benefits of yin yoga and we will discover why yin yoga is considered to be a vital complementary practice for not only yoga teachers/practitioners but for everyone, especially those suffering from chronic back pain or stress related illnesses.

In the afternoon session, our focus will be on the anatomy of yoga. Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

11:00am – 2:00pm & 3:00pm – 6:00pm

For more detailed information about the workshop, please go to:

Yin Therapy’s Markus Henning Giess and Karin Michelle Sang are highly experienced yoga teachers having trained extensively with Paul Grilley (with whom Markus also assists), as well as with Bryan Kest and Sarah Powers.

Yin Therapy currently offers teacher training courses, retreats and workshops in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Australia and New Zealand.

A Day Retreat into The Heart of Relationship with Ben Ralston & Kara-Leah Grant @ Om Yoga Studio
Nov 26 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
A Day Retreat into The Heart of Relationship with Ben Ralston & Kara-Leah Grant @ Om Yoga Studio | Auckland | Auckland | New Zealand

Ready to experience more genuine connection and profound intimacy in all your relationships?
Join Ben Ralston & Kara-Leah Grant for a one-day retreat into the heart of relationship.

Come & sit in a circle and excavate that which blocks intimacy.

Learn the tools with which authentic intimacy can be cultivated (spoiler alert: the tools are unconditional love, and radical honesty); and practice these tools within the circle!

Working in a circle means sitting together and sharing the truth of who we really are. It means taking off the masks, finally, and getting to the bottom of what this journey of life is really all about.

A powerful combination of practical tools and exercises, energy work, trauma healing, ‘talking stick’ work, Yoga, movement, breath work, and deep relaxation make these circle sessions a fast-track personal development goldmine!

Between them KL and Ben have decades of experience in this field, and having walked this path themselves they now come back to share what they have found with you!

In the circle we share our hearts and souls with each other and always find that actually we are all one and the same – that we have the same dreams, the same needs, and the same desires.

Ben expertly heals whatever trauma / blockages comes up, and Kara-Leah holds space and presence with truth and love. The result is nothing short of transformative.

As this is a power-house five hour session, we will focus on the healing work and take movement & energy breaks as necessary. We will also take a short afternoon tea break – make sure you eat a good brunch before you come!

You will leave this one-day retreat with a taste of new sense of self, heart-centered and empowered, and some practical tools for cultivating intimacy in all your relationships.

Plus you’ll be supported and cared for in your post-retreat experience as a Heart of Tribe member. You’ll have access to our Secret Facebook Group.

Date and Time: Sunday 26th November, 11:00-16:00pm

Early Bird Price $118 (before 19th November)
Regular Price $138

Limited to 18 people.
