Postnatal Rejuvenation Workshop

Saturday
Date: 26/05/2018 From: 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Teacher: Lindsey S

Throughout pregnancy, a woman's body goes through many changes to support the growing life within.  After baby is born, the body continues to make adaptations to find its new normal.  Muscles, bones and connective tissues reset to a new familiar, hormones proceed to fluctuate in works to regain homeostasis, and all of these postpartum changes can often be challenging as we regain our sense of Self.  

With the want to heal the body post baby, new moms are often eager to return to (or begin) their yoga practice, but may not have the appropriate knowledge of how to do so safely.  This workshop is specifically designed for those women, with consideration of all the changes that the body has undergone to provide both education and understanding, so to offer a practice that can support the body through the postpartum healing process. 

In this workshop you will learn:

•Diastasis - what is it?
•Safe core exercises
•Pelvic floor connection/retraining
•Yoga postures which are beneficial to new mamas
•Yoga postures that may be a contraindication for new moms, and how to modify

This workshop will include some discussion, a short meditation, as well as a safe and healing practice for your post-partum body.

This is a 2 hour workshop for $45+tax.  It is for mama's only, so leave your little ones at home.  Please bring a yoga mat and water, and wear something comfortable that is easy to move in.  

**The practice portion is recommended for mamas 6+ weeks post partum or cleared by their health care professional.\

Yoga for Wrist Health

Sunday
Date: 27/05/2018
From: 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Many practitioners experience wrist pain while doing yoga, and if we understand the anatomy of the wrists, we know that they are not designed to bear weight in the same way our ankles are.  We also live in a device-centric society, whether it be for work or pleasure, sitting at a computer has been and continues to be an ever-growing part of everyday life.  Tiny injuries due to added pressure as well as repetitive movements can lead to inflammation and damage the muscles, nerves and tendons resulting in pain and discomfort in the wrists. But it is never to late to prevent or reverse the damaging effect of overuse and stop symptoms of pain, fatigue, weak grip or tingling to get to chronic stages.

In this workshop, Bliss RMT Raluca will offer self-massage techniques, trigger point release, stretches and loads of information to support your wrist health.  This workshop is for those who experience wrist pain while practicing yoga,  or are suffering from carpal tunnel, as well as those who may be at risk for carpal tunnel syndrome. 

This is a 2-hour workshop for $45. 

Please wear comfortable clothing that are easy to move in and bring your yoga mat.


A Reflection on Ashtanga Yoga ~ Inversions & Arm Balances

Teacher: Ricky
Date: Sunday June 3
Time: 1:30pm-3:30pm
Cost: $45+tax

Ashtanga Yoga is a broad system and it can be a little overwhelming to take class. You might have the feeling of ‘where do I start?’

In this workshop the mysteries of Ashtanga will be decoded and will show the practitioner how available and accessible it truly is.

In addition to the introduction to Ashtanga, this workshop will immerse in the foundations of building up an arm balance and inversions practice. These two pieces within yoga asana(posture) are quite prevalent in Ashtanga Yoga, so it can be helpful to break them down separately. Both arm balance and inversion postures may seem out of reach by a lot of students, but through further analysis one can surmise that with a little technique and body awareness they are far more accessible than believed.

Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move and bring your yoga mat. Be prepared to practice pranayama (breath control), meditation, practice many physical postures, including poses on your hands and upside down and to sit through lectures.

Therapeutic Yoga with Kat

Sundays
Date: 15/04/2018 - 20/05/2018
From: 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm


What makes Therapeutic Movement unique is the adaptation of yoga postures, which are practiced in a way to enhance the rejuvenation process while deeply connecting with the self and the body as it heals. This Therapeutic Yoga class is designed to give bodies the opportunity to restore, repair, and recover in an intimate and fully supported environment, receiving personal modifications and adjustments by one of our specially trained therapeutic yoga teachers. In these classes we adopt an attitude of ‘less is more’ and learn simple yet specific postures and movements that require just enough effort to strengthen and create stability to the areas of recovery, while cultivating kindness to leave room for the inner workings of our own wisdom body to begin to move into a state of healing. These exercises assist in not only rehabilitating the body, but also in nourishing and connecting the heart and the mind, which allows us to settle into a state of acceptance and allowance, adjusting our attitude towards our present condition and becoming self-invested in our own healing.

Therapeutic Movement classes can assist in the therapy and healing of:

  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Frozen Shoulder, Shoulder Pain
  • Chronic Rotator Cuff Injury
