Introduction to hand and arm balancing: Join Bec to begin to develop the strength and technique you need for safe, stable arm balances. We will focus on the fundamental arm balances and headstand that you can weave into your regular yoga practice.
Restorative Yoga is suitable for students of all levels and experience. Because it’s deeply relaxing and floor based, it can be especially useful for people recovering from illness or undergoing major treatments.
The Restorative Yoga experience is a whole body and mind experience and it is deeply healing at a psychological and physiological level. Paul will also include beautiful mindfulness practices to enhance your experience so you leave this Immersion feeling wonderfully relaxed and rejuvenated.
TUESDAY 9 — SUNDAY 14 AUGUST 2022 with Beata Heymann & Wendy Praud
This Yoga Holiday will allow you the time and space to relax as you like in the luscious surrounds of Tallows Beach.
Your days will start at 9am with an intentional yoga practice led by Wendy and Beata. Following the most delicious organic, vegetarian brunch, you can choose to spend your day immersed in nature, going for walks in the forest or on the beach, and you are close enough to Byron’s restaurants, cafes, shopping and spas if you prefer a leisurely walk into town. If you feel like staying on site you can take a brisk dip in the ocean, meditate in the yoga shala or read a book on the verandah.
The afternoon yoga class is a Yin practice with deep stretches, meditation and sound healing – the best way to end the day before our personal chef prepares us dinner.
Safe & Effective Adjustments – with Jenni Morrison-Jack
SATURDAY AUGUST 27
Come and immerse yourself in the subtle art of adjusting to deepen your yoga teaching and to build your confidence through hands-on exercises. This practical workshop will teach you how to give effective verbal and safe hands-on adjustments of common yoga asanas. This workshop is most suited to yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainees. You can choose to attend the Fundamentals session in the morning only, or devote the whole day and work on progression in the afternoon.
This workshop will cover:
principles and benefits of adjusting
different forms of adjusting
alignments and typical misalignments of basic poses
verbal adjustments, resistance adjustments and other hands-on adjustments of common yoga poses.
You will learn to observe the pose to decide what needs to be adjusted – and how – and have the opportunity to assist your fellow students in common yoga poses.
