THURSDAY 7:30PM – Inversions Class with Monica Anderson

Halasana - Inversions Class with Monica Anderson

(Tomorrow) THURS 30 April 7:30PM – INVERSIONS CLASS with Monica Anderson

If you interested in a gradual introduction to inversions, or if you are interested to explore or refine your safe transition, execution and transition in and out of inversions – join us in this 75-minute class tomorrow evening (7:30-8:45PM).

The first 30 minutes of class will be utilised to warm up the body in preparation for the gradual progression into several variations of these inversions. Inversions to be explored are – handstand, shoulder stand, head stand and wheel pose.

You will not be expected to come into the full free-standing version of the pose unless(1) the instructor finds that you are ready to do so, and (2) you feel ready to do so.

Please note, there will be several variations (levels) to each pose – each variation will (1) establish the stability and confidence in your foundation, and (2) give you clear gradual feedback as to which variation your body is ready for. Practice at your own pace and level of comfort. Your instructor, Monica Anderson, will guide you through each variation.

This class gives you the opportunity to refine and explore these poses outside of what is usually limited time at your usual yoga class.

This class will still be a well-rounded practise — the guided practise will allow you to warm up and cool down at the beginning and end of class.

We look forward to seeing you there!

NAMASTE.

New Yoga Course – Mid-Week Restorative Yoga Course

Mid-week Restorative Yoga CourseIdeal for beginners or experienced practitioners, this 75-minute practise invests 20 minutes in a fluid-moving vinyasa (Yang), followed by a 55 minute restorative practise (Yin). This allows the body to receive a balanced practise – providing the opportunity to warm up, build internal heat, and clear energy pathways (Yang), complemented thereafter by a more passive practise that allows the body to gain energy (and tap into the body’s natural capacity to renew itself) without using energy (Yin).

Tap into the body’ natural reservoir to renew itself. Explore this balanced practise over a 10-week program.

While a Restorative Yoga practice is ideal for times when we feel depleted or recovering from illness, reserving one restorative practice a week can build up stores of energy in you that can prevent conditions of DEPLETION, and pave the way towards SUSTAINABLE HEALTH.

Open to all levels and abilities.

PRICE: $165 for 10 classes.
TIME: Wednesdays, 7:30pm-8:45pm. Term 2 course starts on Wednesday 29 April.
VENUE: Canberra Yoga Space, Level 1 / 13 Botany Street in Phillip, Woden.

**Places are limited to a maximum of 17 participants, so book your place now. Click here to enrol.

What is IYENGAR YOGA?

What is Iyengar Yoga?In practice Iyengar yoga focuses particularly on three aspects. Correct body alignment allows the body to develop harmoniously in an anatomically correct way so that the student suffers no injury or pain when practising correctly. As all bodies are different and people have different weaknesses and strengths. Mr Iyengar has also developed the use of props to help the body into the correct positions required. Props are objects like wooden blocks, chairs, blankets and belts that help one adjust or support oneself in the different postures so that one can work in a range of motion that is safe and effective.

An added benefit is that although the therapeutic aspects of asanas and pranayama have been known for centuries, Mr Iyengar’s unrelenting emphasis on correct anatomical alignment and methods of working have refined the therapeutic aspects of Yoga. Thus practice of Iyengar yoga will often result in eliminating aches and pains, improve posture etc. but Iyengar Yoga can also be used to treat many ailments, including extremely serious medical conditions, under the supervision of a suitably experienced teacher. The other two key aspects of asana practice in the Iyengar system are correct sequencing in which there is a powerful cumulative effect achieved by practicing asanas in particular sequences. The concept of timings means postures are held for considerable lengths of time to let the effects of the poses penetrate deeper within the individual.What is Iyengar Yoga?

Join Certified Iyengar Teacher, Josef Ishar these next two Wednesdays, 15 & 22 APRIL, 6-7:30PM, for an Iyengar Yoga practise that will refresh your alignment and freedom of movement, while deepening the stillness in your practise in body-mind. Sign up through our timetable.
