Spring Yin UNWIND Workshop

Feel like you need a refresh for the new season ahead?

ENTER: Spring Yin UNWIND! A beginning of the month, all-in-one self care practice for busy, modern humans with no time for self care!

This 2hour workshop is inviting you to unravel those Winter shackles, and harness the new, exuberant energy of Spring.

  • 2 hours of super mellow flow and juicy long-held poses draped over comfy props (all props provided) with one of Sydney's leading Yin experts
  • accessible (and easy) meditation practices and deep cleansing breathwork to balance emotions and relieve irritability

Inversions + Arm Balances Workshop

The Balanced You is a 4 week challenge at Living Flow Yoga. This workshop is part of a series of elemental events during the month, but is open to everyone - not just those signed up to the challenge!

FIRE is the first element that is upwardly mobile. Anchored in the belly centre, when we stoke our inner fire it helps propel energy/prana upwards. In this workshop, discover how to harness the power of fire to uplift in inversions and arm balances.

Open to all levels, you'll explore the concept of using bandhas (body locks) to ignite deep strength from within, sustain energy and fuel a sense of steadiness - both in the body and mind.

When: Sunday 16 September, 1:30 - 3:30pm

A Month of Devotion & Intention

A Month of Devotion & Intention

It's a new year, and so a divine time to set a clear inspired path. This month in all public classes we'll be exploring the art of devotion to our self, to our healing, to our open hearts. It's gentle inner work.

Yin Yoga is beautifully simple yet transformative practice that acts as an antidote to a busy life. Most of my huge shifts on the mat have come from yin yoga - and I'm excited to theme the month of January's Yin classes in alignment with this simple slow practice.

I teach regular Yin Yoga classes at Egg of the Universe on Monday and Sunday evenings, plus additional covers here and there (check out the timetable).

  • Dietary reccomendations to help you cleanse your body. This involving a 3-day fruit & veggie juice cleanse during week 4 of the challenge, at an additional cost.
