Yin Yoga Weekend – Early bird discount finishes tomorrow 31 August

Yin Yoga Weekend - Yoga As Self Knowledge with Sarah Owen - 29-30 September 2017

Sarah Owen’s Yin Yoga Weekend is fast approaching and we have a few places left. If you are interested to attend, the early bird price of $120 finishes tomorrow night – Thursday 31 August.

Click here to find out more or enrol.

The weekend comprises of the following three sessions.

Session 1: Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, Friday 29 September 6:30-8:30pm

Improve your flexibility, open your heart centre and feel your positive energy rise. We will practice conscious breathing, Yin Yoga postures, mindfulness meditation (anapanasati), and deep conscious relaxation (guided Yoga Nidra). By the end of the workshop you will feel deeply nourished, restored and inspired.

Yin Yoga is a restorative style of yoga that uses passive, long-held poses to keep the energetic body active and the immune system strong. This results in vibrant health and resilient energy levels, while the Yin Yoga sequence does not deplete the body of energy at all. Perfect for all levels of yoga practitioner – everyone welcome!

Session 2: Yoga as Self Knowledge, Saturday 30 September 10:15am-12:45pm

Come home to yourself during this 2.5 hour Hatha Yoga workshop including Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. Hatha Yoga uses the mindful integration of physical movements with conscious breath and clear intention. Through regular daily practice, the body becomes strong, the heart more balanced, and the mind more focussed with steady, calm intention.

For thousands of years, Hatha Yoga has been used as a method to develop clarity of attention and to transcend self-imposed limitations in the body and mind. It achieves this by cultivating attention and directing energy through the practices of asana (physical poses), pranayama (breath cultivation), and meditation (cultivation of attention). The term “Hatha” refers to the bringing together, or the integration of, different polarities of being (much like the balancing of yin and yang). This will be an informative and transformative workshop suitable for all levels.

Session 3: Yin Yoga for Cultivating Peace of Mind, Saturday 30 September 1:30-4pm

This deeply introspective yin yoga workshop will include practices to compassionately awaken the body, heart and mind. These simple practices can be repeated at home regularly, creating your own personal sadhana or meditation practice, thereby deepening your capacity to draw upon compassionate acceptance for peace of mind.

In various facets of our lives we are striving for more; seeking improvements or progression along the path. Sometimes the most insightful gift we can give ourselves is the opportunity to relax the fixation to improve, analyse, or explain our circumstances; instead drawing deeply inwards into investigate bare, radical acceptance. Compassionate acceptance is the key to cultivating peace of mind.

“Rather than being dis-heartened by the uncertainty of life, what if we accepted it and relaxed into it? What if we said, ‘Yes, this is the way it is; this is what it means to be human’, and decided to sit down and enjoy the ride?” – Pema Chodron

When: Friday 29 September to Saturday 30 September 2017
Where: Canberra Yoga Space, Level 1 / 13 Botany Street, Phillip ACT 2606
Cost: Early bird of $120 until 31 August 2017, $140 from 1 September 2017 for all three sessions

Kids Yoga Holiday Classes Term 3 2017

Kids Yoga Holiday Classes - Yoga for Children

Becoming a child with children
sharing the wonder sharing imagination
being a child makes you complete.

Join us on a journey through the forest, to sea and beyond. What creatures will we discover? Who will you be? What magic can we share?

Our kids yoga holiday classes with Niki De Domenico, offer a safe, non-competitive space for children to have fun, foster self-awareness and creativity while calming the mind and moving the body in a healthy way.

Through games and songs, our classes move through warm-ups to various yoga poses before a moment of rest to explore a visualisation. After yoga we create art about our yoga experience, for example, if we meet a fairy in the forest we make a felt fairy to take home (to remember our journey!).


‘Yoga is a movement of peace. I like doing yoga and you can do any animal you like at the end.’ – Sol, age 5

‘My favourite is being a mermaid in the sea. You have to be quiet, and I feel my heart.’ – Eva, age 3

Please note, when picking up your child at the end of the session – kindly remain outside the room on arrival as the finishing practise may be quiet relaxation and keeping the space quiet supports your child to get the most out of the session.

Arc of Ascent Kirtan Weekend with David Stringer 4-5 November 2017

ABOUT DAVE STRINGER

Dave Stringer is a Grammy-nominated producer, singer, composer and innovative modern Kirtan artist, profiled in publications all over the world. Stringer’s sound connects the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American Gospel and the ringing harmonies of Appalachia.

Initially trained as a visual artist, filmmaker and jazz musician, Stringer’s focus shifted significantly after video editing work brought him to an ashram in India in 1990. It has also been informed by a subsequent period of service teaching meditation to prison inmates, and expanded by his interest and research in neuroscience.

An articulate and engaging public speaker, Stringer probes the dilemmas of the spirit with a wry and unorthodox sense of humor. His work intends to create a modern and participatory theatrical experience out of the venerable traditions of kirtan and yoga, open to a multiplicity of interpretations, and accessible to all.

ABOUT DEARBHLA KELLY

Born and raised in Ireland, Dearbhla Kelly is a Los Angeles-based writer and yoga teacher. She began her academic training in Amsterdam and received degrees in philosophy in Dublin and Chicago. She is particularly skillful at marrying the more esoteric teachings of yoga with modern scientific insights and the practicalities of everyday life. Dearbhla teaches yoga, philosophy and neuroscience workshops in the USA, Europe and Australia.

50 Hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Sarah Owen - January 2018

Immerse yourself deeply in the practice of Yin Yoga during this 50 hour yin yoga and mindfulness teacher training (non-residential) with Sarah Owen. Yin Yoga uses restorative, floor-based poses to nourish and stimulate the deeper energetic channels in the body, providing support for the immune system. Yin Yoga also provides the perfect container to develop deeper levels of self-inquiry and to cultivate the capacity for meditative self-awareness.

You will come away with a clear understanding of safety and anatomical issues pertaining to the Yin Yoga practice, as well as having the ability to creatively sequence yin yoga classes for all levels of students. This training is also designed to deepen your own personal practice of yoga and meditation by incorporating elements of meditation and self-inquiry into your daily yoga practice. The most effective yoga teaching comes from your own personal immersion and deepened personal experience of these ancient methods and teachings.

Deepen your knowledge of the more inward-drawn yoga practices (including pranayama and meditation) and immerse yourself in a personal discovery of the more quiet inner realms. Mindfulness meditation will be explored as an ‘inner method’ during the Yin Yoga poses as well as a seated meditation practice (including the 4 Foundations of Mindfulness).

When: Monday 8 January to Saturday 13 January 2018 from 8:30am-4:30pm.
Where: Canberra Yoga Space, Level 1 / 13 Botany Street, Phillip ACT 2606.

The 50 hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training Course Curriculum will include the following:

  • Anatomy and Physiology specific to Yin Yoga
  • Modifications and Safety in Yin Yoga, including the use of props
  • Anatomy of the Subtle Body (meridians and chakras)
  • Mindfulness in Yin Yoga (including two specific methods of meditation – Shamatha and Vipassana)
  • Applications of mindfulness in daily life

  • Pranayama (breathing techniques) for health, relaxation and awaking the energy body

To be a certified teacher of Yin Yoga, you must have successfully completed a 200-hour Yoga Teaching Certification previously.

“The Yin Yoga Teacher training with Sarah Owen has transformed the way I teach both Yin and my regular Hatha classes. I feel as though my practice and the way I teach now contains a richer mix of the eight limbs of Yoga. What I enjoyed most from the training was the teachings of the ‘inner methods’ of Yoga. Sarah provided us with a diverse variety of pranayama, concentration, and meditation techniques that can be used once you have set students up in the pose. These practices help to take the students beyond the physical body, so that they can experience the greater benefits – the system of self-transformation – that is Yoga.” AK

We feel privileged to announce that James Bryan, co-founder of Knoff Yoga is coming to Canberra Yoga Space for a full weekend immersion workshop this July 2017.

Knoff Yoga is one of Australia’s leading yoga schools, and provides the highest quality training available in the world. With a combined 80 years of experience between Nicky Knoff and James Bryan, having both trained and certified in BOTH the Iyengar Yoga tradition and the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition (1st to 4th series) – this is the first training school internationally to thoroughly combine the benefits of both methods to bring about the full potential in both the practitioner and yoga teacher.

Introducing rigorous technique whilst potent in its fundamental emphasis for the individual to come home to one’s self and taking ownership over one’s own well-being and quality of life — Knoff Yoga continues to provide truly self-empowering and transformative experiences.

** Watch the Knoff Yoga YouTube video below to find out more about Knoff Yoga.

About James Bryan

James Bryan - Knoff YogaJames Bryan was born in Los Angeles (USA) and migrated to NZ in 1969. After studying with B.K.S. Iyengar in Pune, India (1986) and gaining certification, James studied with K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India (1989) and learned the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

Out of these experiences and in partnership with Nicky Knoff, the Knoff Yoga System was birthed into existence.

Before yoga, sitting on his back-side in a life crushing office job, led to running marathons in late 70’s and early 80’s. The stretching in long-distance running piqued an interest in yoga.

Weekend Workshop Schedule

Practitioners of all levels and traditions are invited to attend these fun and educational master classes with a modern Western teacher who bridges correct anatomical alignment (injury free) with the energetic principles of Bandha, Drishti, Ujjayi Pranayama and Vinyasa.

These master classes will use the Knoff Foundation Asana syllabus with an emphasis on the Knoff Yoga Principles of Practice, which are universal in application and profound in effect.

When: Friday 14 July to Sunday 16 July 2017
Where: Canberra Yoga Space, Level 1 / 13 Botany Street, Phillip ACT 2606
Cost: $275 for all four sessions or $75 per session

This approach is best appreciated from an overview, i.e. instead of just looking at the individual trees, step back mentally and appreciate the view of the whole forest. Watch the Knoff Yoga YouTube video below to find out more about Knoff Yoga.

All participants will receive extensive notes including:
* Knoff Yoga Overview
* Student Creed
* 5 Pillars of Practice
