Yoga teaches that what we believe to be the self is in fact the ego which stands separate from life. The True self or the Atman is the ultimate essence of the universe as well as the essential being in humans.

This workshop combines yoga, brush and ink techniques in a way that takes the student into an inner, fluid and interconnected world where the outer layers of the ego melt away to reveal our inner nature.

Yoga – movement, posture, sound, relaxation, concentration and meditation practices

Ink Mixing, Japanese Ink Painting and Japanese Calligraphy techniques, Poetry and Intuitive Painting

Cost: $50.00 / $38 Conc. each

Are you missing Yin Yoga or curious to try Yin? Join John Smith for 2 hours of Yin Yoga and Meditation practice!

During the practice John will guide you through a series of Yin poses coupled with various breath practices and guided meditations.

The benefits of a Yin practice include:

  • A reduction of stress and anxiety by stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system;
  • An increase to circulation of the blood flow
  • Improved range of motion and joint mobility by releasing the fascia and increasing synovial fluid;
  • Strengthens the Immune system
  • Improving the flow of chi or prana in the body.

John is a qualified Level 3 Yin yoga teacher who trained with IYTA’s Sarah Manning (trained from the author of The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga, Bernie Clark) and Jeff Lowe (Traditional Chinese Therapist in using Acupressure points with holding Yin postures). John first discovered Yin Yoga attending regular classes in Brisbane where he not only experienced a deep sense of release from stress, but also the ability to explore the deep meditative experience that comes from this practice. John has also been an avid meditator for over 30 years and is keen to share with others the many physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga.

Cost: $40
