Byron Bay October Long Weekend Retreat (spaces available)

Inner Strength & Outer Softness – Yin Restorative

5 Week Courses with Cheree

$110 / $25 casual if space available
THURSDAY –   24th Sept – 29th Oct / 5:30-6:45pm (No class 1st Oct)
MONDAY –  28th Sept – 31st Oct  / 7-8:15pm (No class 5th Oct) SATURDAY – 10th Oct – 2nd Nov / 10:30- 11:45am (No class 3rd Oct)

The inward journey of a Yin practice gives you plenty of opportunities to stop listen and feel.  When you seek to know your inner – self, you start understanding yourself better. You start to hear your inner voice and your hearts yearnings. You can heal and release barriers that have been holding you back.

Yin Yoga is a passive, deeply meditative and relaxing yet powerful form of Yoga that uses long slow stretches, breath awareness and guided imagery to heal at the deepest level. Very popular class please book early if interested.  Passive postures are held for several minutes each to target the connective tissue and fascia around the muscles, ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body. The aim is to create pressure or a build-up of energy to generate change and relieve unnecessary tension. Then when you let go you physically, mentally, emotionally you can experience a deep sense of peace, openness and oneness. This practice is suitable for all ages and stages and is a great adjunct to more dynamic and muscular practices.

Feeling stuck in an area or areas of your life? Needing some guidance to move forward? Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice that helps you channel powerful energy to transform your life. It is the yoga of deep awareness and transformation.

If our energy reserves are low, we feel weak in body and in spirit, and our ability to persevere through challenging times diminishes. Kundalini Yoga helps us connect to, develop and channel life force–prana. When we tap into this we have the ability to withstand the pressures and daily demands of life. Kundalini yoga moves energy through the body.

This process of releasing energy from the body has the aim of creating a system of communication between the mind and body to relieve mental, physical, and spiritual issues. This system of bringing awareness to the body by connecting with the breath enables us to be present to the gift that is OUR LIFE.

“Being human means being able to transcend the so-called laws of nature and make something happen that is larger than us.”

Many people see the core as only the abdominal region of the body.  The core is both a precise physical and an energetic space in the body mind.  If our core is weak, we lack the inner and outer strength to deal with life’s many peaks and chasm.  When we work the core with both asana and attention on the mat this is our training ground for the bigger picture of our life.  We gain insight into the great teaching of inner strength and outer softness.

We will learn how to incorporate a strong focus on the core as well as engage the layers of deep muscles that help support your pelvis, spine, butt, back, hips and stomach which keep our posture strong and tall and allow us to twist, bend, run, jump and just move. This will assist in healing existing weaknesses, preventing common injuries and cultivate intelligence and strength.

We will:

  • explore the core as the spiritual, emotional and physical midline of our bodies. 
  • learn how to hug to the midline for greater strength but also more mobility and increased flexibility.
  • use poses that increase physical balance and strength and encourage emotional and mental resilience.
  • Use practices to support stomach and spleen energy.

Come play with us.

Testimonials

“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
