Breathe Yourself Into Balance
“There are two reasons the mind moves about,” the Yogakundali Upanishad tells us: “the breath and the vasanas (deep-seated mental/emotional habits).” Recognizing the profound connection between the nervous system and the respiratory system, the verse continues with a promise: “If one is controlled, then the other is also controlled.” And no one who has tried to work with their mind will doubt the wisdom of the next line: “Of these two, the breath should be controlled first.”
The breath is the external manifestation of vital energy, or prana. By controlling the breath we can learn to control prana, and because prana sets the mind in motion, by controlling the breath we control the mind. The pranayama practices of hatha yoga offer various techniques for developing control of the breath.
Hatha and Yin Classes will focus on the Breathe to restore physical, emotional, mental and spiritual balance.
In HATHA classes we will incorporate poses and practices for Balance, Flexibility and Strength. Yoga means “union“. If you are too flexible this leads to weakness and lack of stability and strength. If you are too tight you lack flexibility and can become rigid in mind and body. Hatha yoga is the art of physical postures, actions, and breathwork to achieve this state of union through the body/mind. Through the practice of physical poses, breathwork, meditation, and relaxation, you’ll develop more flexibility, strength, and inner peace. Awareness of your True Self – the unlimited potential within – is awakened, as the blocks to becoming that greater Self are revealed through the practice. Gradually, you release those blocks, and bring forth new possibilities in body and mind! You’ll also notice improvements with back problems, balance, ability of the mind to focus, digestion, quality of sleep, and many other physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits.

In YIN classes we explore Letting Go of muscles, tension and stress. It can be challenging to stop the train of daily occupation. To stop and listen to your own voice and what it has to say. Are you still doing what you want? Are you living the life you want, with people that support and inspire you? Is there something that keeps bothering you under the surface that you need to look into in order to clear the way to your psychophysical happiness and freedom?
Yin Restorative classes use a variety of floor based restorative postures held for several minutes to create long stretches in a passive way. Breathing techniques, meditations, mudras and mantras to nourish, balance and heal the parasympatheic nervous system and create and deep sense of peace and relaxation.

“At a recent business retreat, I invited Cheree Price (yogatopia.com.au) to provide an early morning practice that would set participants up for a day of learning and co-creating. She provided a practice of gentle stretches, strengthening energisers and quiet self-connection that was accessible to all. In addition, participants left with the knowledge and skills to use the practice in their lives beyond work.
As a coach who works with teams and individuals, it matters to me that my clients come to coaching supported in their well-being. I highly recommend Cheree (with her 30 years of teaching multiple forms of yoga) as your “go to” provider as you support employees to thrive”. Anne Deane Communication and Leadership Coach

P.s I cant believe the change in my mum!” Lauren
