The Power of Meditation & Breath

Teacher: Sian Pascale

4 week Series: Wednesdays 7.30pm

Beginning 12 July, 2017

Cost: $120

Class Length: 60 mins

The breath is always with us. It keeps us alive. It effects our state of being. The mind, body and breath are intimately connected and can influence each other. The breath has an enormous power to remove stress, instil balance and peace within us. It is a simple yet powerful method for focussing the mind.

Together across 4 weeks with guidance from Sian, a revered teacher who has studied in India, we will pair back what it means to meditate. We will explore breathing techniques that will allow you meditate with more ease, and help you to find the confidence to create your own personal daily practise.

This series is suitable for everyone; no previous experience is necessary. For more experienced meditators, these techniques will help take your meditation skills to the next level. Spaces are limited.

“For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth.” ~Sanskrit proverb


A morning of Heartfulness

Teacher: David Packman

Sunday 20th August 9am-12pm

Cost: $95

(or $75 earlybird before August 1st)

Science has shown us that the heart has the most powerful energy field in our body, but where would you point if you were asked to name the place where your consciousness is located and decisions are made? Your head, right? Our indigenous ancestors would respond by touching their hearts. They understood the heart’s innate wisdom and its ability to perceive and decipher the world around them. They acknowledged the limitations of relying solely on the mind.

In this three-hour workshop, we will practice heart-based meditations that realign our hearts and minds, helping us to rejuvenate and rebalance. This not only provides effective stress management but can also improve mental functions such as perception, intuition and creativity. Research has also shown that regular practice offers significant health benefits by improving immune function and much more.

This workshop is suitable for everyone; no previous experience is necessary. For more experienced meditators, these techniques will help take the benefits of your mindfulness skills to the next level. Spaces are limited.

Yin yoga is a slower 'Yin' style of yoga which incorporates longer held static stretches and restorative poses. Yin heals by softening sore muscles, releasing tight joints and calming the mind. It requires you to slow down your breath so that your thoughts aren't running your entire nervous system. The hunger for a yoga practice that allows for both rest and looking inward seems strongly desired in our hectic and stressful lives. Simply stopping and becoming present with yourself will allow for the Yin to do its thing!

Some classes you may be able to join the whole class, other days your baby may be unsettled and you have to breastfeed or walk them around. Don't feel like you need your baby to be quiet! The classes are suitable for mums and babies who are a minimum of 6 weeks old, up until they are moving around independently.
