– The Sacred Pelvis: In this workshop we start to consider the importance of stability as the primary foundation that assists function. Paradoxically, through stability we will gain greater hip mobility and support.
-Through our hips we will make a greater connection to our core and spine in ways that encourage a deeper integrated connection.
– We will also look at the intricate relationships between the three main honey segments that make up the entire pelvic girdle.

Yin Yoga Therapy @ Z Health Studio
Nov 5 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Yin Yoga Therapy @ Z Health Studio | Paraparaumu | Wellington | New Zealand

Treat yourself to a 90min Yin Yoga special.

Yin Yoga is “the other half” of yoga. It is the complementary practice to all yang forms of exercise e.g. yang styles of yoga, dance or sport.

Yin Yoga stimulates the fascia – the connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, joints resulting in a deeply relaxing practice while creating “space” in the body, de-stressing the mind and re-energizing the soul.

A slow paced Yoga practice that includes long held asanas to stimulate the fascia and release tension held deep in the body. We start the practice with meditation, Yin practice and finish with Shavasana.

Bring warm clothes, socks, and a blanket.

Investment: $20 / $15 for students

Online booking essential as space is limited!

Journey to the Center of the Breath with Leslie Kaminoff @ Om Yoga Studio
Mar 3 @ 9:00 am – Mar 4 @ 4:30 pm
Journey to the Center of the Breath with Leslie Kaminoff @ Om Yoga Studio | Auckland | Auckland | New Zealand

Journey to the Center of the Breath: Asana, Vinyasa, Bandha, Pranayama, and Meditation with Leslie Kaminoff

This weekend workshop will delve into the core principles of yoga practice from the perspective of the body’s anatomy, physiology and neurology.

A key feature of Desikachar and Krishnamacharya’s methodology is its central focus on the breath. All the details of practice — alignment, spinal action, mental focus and even spiritual aspiration — are anchored to the process of breathing. While there is ample foundation for the traditional pranic dimensions of these teachings, they have not traditionally been well-supported from a Western anatomical perspective. Leslie Kaminoff has devoted the past four decades to an investigation of this very topic, and will present his latest findings through a series of practices blended with a richly detailed lecture/demo format that combines audio-visual material with illustrated handouts, experiential exploration and group inquiry.

We will view the principles of yoga through the lenses of breath anatomy, spinal release/support, and bandha (both dynamic and static) in highly interactive sessions. Participants will be invited to bring their interests, questions and reactions into the practice and ensuing dialogue. Come prepared both to have some of your deepest insights anatomically validated and your assumptions challenged.

Date and Time:

Saturday 3rd March 2018: morning session 9:00 am – 12:00 pm; afternoon session: 1:15 – 4:15 pm

Sunday 4th March 2018: morning session 9:30 am – 12:30 pm; afternoon session: 1:30 – 4:30 pm

Cost: $499
