Light Yoga and Sound Healing
8:30 am - 9:30 am
Nina Hakamies Omni Yoga & Mindfulness
8:30 am - 9:30 am

This gentle yoga session combines yogasanas to awaken our morning bodies and the playing of healing sounds (with Himalayan singing bowls, chimes and drums) to balance our biofield and body-mind. Through the exploration of movement, breath, sounds and silence, we connect with our physical body, while also holding space for our mental, emotional and spiritual aspects. This holistic and harmonising practice is suitable for beginners and more seasoned practitioners alike and will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and re-energised.

Self-love and compassion

Chelsea Watson
11:30 am - 12:30 pm

In today’s modern world, we are constantly being bombarded by the media and society, brainwashing us into thinking that we are not enough as we are. Even our yoga practice can get confused with the process of self-improvement, and the implications can be quite harmful. Join Chelsea for a strong mindful and joyous vinyasa practice. The class will include asana, pranayama, meditation, and mantra, with an underlying theme of self- love and compassion. This practice of self-love truly matters. It can transform the way we live in the world, making us stronger and creating more ease and freedom. “I encourage you to make your relationship with your Spirit the most passionate love affair of your life.” - Ana Forrest

Shakti and Shiva: the yogic dance of the divine feminine and masculine
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Jane Mallick
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In this workshop we will explore and embody Shakti and Shiva as the personification of the great powers of Yoga. Shiva, the divine masculine, represents consciousness and awareness; and Shakti, the divine feminine, represents activating power and energy. Like yin and yang, they represent the duality behind all energies in the universe. Shiva and Shakti exist as personal potentials within us as well as the cosmic powers outside of us at every level of consciousness, from the macro to the micro. Together these energies complete and complement each other. It is a metaphor for the cosmic truth that reality is a duality and that in unity it is the dance of polarities. The embodiment of Shiva and Shakti in our yoga offers us an inner journey to wholeness by taking us beyond the polarities of gender as well as the limited and skewed cultural definitions of masculine and feminine. “Awakening the Shiva and Shakti, the God and Goddess, the Yogi and the Yogini within us, we can set in motion all the dynamic currents of inner growth and transformation allowing their energies to spiral within us along their natural ascent into the Infinite”. David Frawley

The Meaning of Yoga in the ancient Upanishads
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
David Mcrae
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Yoga has been practised, taught and written about for at least 3,000 years. For the last one hundred years it seems to have meant the system of physical postures and breathing exercises. But the really ancient Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita are full of a somewhat different yoga teaching. Their yoga largely begins with contemplating the eternal nature of reality, along with practice of pratyahara and the deeper levels of concentration and meditation. Let's explore the essence of this Yoga.

Yin Yoga: connecting to the wisdom of stillness.

Jane Mallick

Yin yoga in the recent years has grown exponentially in the world of yoga. We live in a very ‘yang culture’, a culture that requires us to be on, and productive, well beyond the means of our human body. So it is not surprising that yogis and yoginis around the world are being drawn to the wisdom of yin yoga. In this workshop we will explore the meridian theory and how when embodied in our yin yoga practice can align us to the wisdom of the seasons in nature.
