Are you currently living with stress, anxiety, poor posture or difficulty catching your breath? Caught in breathlessness, chaos, and rigidity that may have caused immunological responses such as asthma, hay fever, structural facial changes, sleep apnea, or even snoring, these ailments impeding your ability to live a holistic life? Perhaps you just wish to bring more awareness to your pranic field and wish to really understand how the breath affects your bank of prana.
According to the commentaries of the Yoga-Sutra, the Eight-Fold Path of practice counters obstacles such as chaos and rigidity. The Sadhana-Pada also reminds us that the main cause of these obstacles along the spiritual path is often a lack of insight.
This lack of insight is also pertinent in today’s scientific wellness model. Indeed, many modern remedies for both mental and physiological dis-ease now draw upon practices similar to the Eight-Fold Path of Yoga. One such similarity on the path is the breath: Pranayama.
Prana = Energy
Ayama = Extend
We are karmically born with a unique bank of energy; we can either choose to squander it or maintain it. Ayurveda promotes that with correct practice we can access our inner most being, thus providing insight to extending our Prana and improving our karma. It is well known within yogic science that pranayama is practiced to extend life and our bank of Prana.
Join three conversant yogic teachers as they share their practice wisdom with you and bring you a weekend dedicated to improving your holistic well-being through the breath.
Clinical Yoga Therapy for Stress, Anxiety, Breathing, Posture
Our breath and our posture intrinsically influence our health, mental and physical. Senior yoga teacher and yoga therapist, Craig Smith opens this weekend and shares knowledge of the innate inner wisdom of the breath in conjunction with ancient yogic practices.
As our breath is the manipulator of subtle energy flow, it has the power to cultivate qualities of calmness, peace, lightness, comfort as well as attentiveness. This brings simplicity to complexities, and connects our bodies and minds, allowing ultimately for integrated wellbeing and the space within for energy to flow.
Create optimal well-being by learning more adept knowledge of how modern science, pranayama, yoga postures and the Yoga-Sutra’s align to the notion that the breath allows us access to our inner most being. With practice and refinement well-being is attainable. Yoga postures will be covered to improve posture and breathing.
Pranayama & Meditations
Craig continues cultivating experiential healing by concentrating on the notion whereby the link to mind body awareness is bridged by the breath. Pranayama techniques will be taught with accuracy and precision to bring about physical and mental change. He further explores the capacity of the breath to bring remedy to suffering and enhance your pranic energy bank through specific practices of meditation.
Face and Body Reading
Sunday 26 August 2018
9:30 – 12:30
Hosted by Ken Warren
Face and Body Reading
Day Rate $148 (Combined with afternoon session)
Be guided through an introduction to the wisdom of face and body reading as it relates to health and dis-ease with Ken Warren, an holistic bodyworker with over 15 years of hands on experience.
Our faces and our bodies convey the bio-energetic information that reflect and influence our various responses to life. This understanding helps us to further develop a compassionate relationship with ourselves; as we learn to embrace our unique gifts and strengths, while recognising, accepting and learning to work with our challenges.
Ken will guide you through face and body reading and cover elements such as:
- How the body communicates with us
- Using the Chakra system as a roadmap
- The balance of our own inner masculine/feminine polarities
- Energetic imbalances and restrictions and their effect on health and wellbeing
The Breathing of my Heart
The breath of my heart sings a tune so sweet that even in the depths of despair the tone vibrates within; awakening the innate beauty, the inherent goodness that knowingly resides in what can only be described as the infinite connectedness that this life is.
Lunching each day at the Upper Brookfield Sanctuary
Everyone brings a small plate to share for lunch. It is a delicious affair. We love small and easy dishes; salads are always well received, so too small fruit plates, fresh breads, dips, and we certainly enjoy the creative plate!
