Branches of Yoga – Yoga beyond postures with Prue

Thursday 2 August 2018

When most people in our society think of yoga what do they think of? Generally, postures, breathing, stretching, meditation and relaxation spring to most people’s minds. Most of these aspects relate to Hatha yoga, but yoga is so much more vast and varied. Hatha yoga is only one type of yoga or spiritual practice.

Whether you are a more emotional person, devotional or intellectual in nature, yoga has a path for you.

Each branch with its unique characteristics and function represents a particular approach to life. You may find one particular branch may resonate with you more than another however, one path does not preclude or supersede the others, and in fact you’ll find the paths naturally overlap.

Get introduced to all the main branches or types of yoga in this short workshop.

 

Yoga Nidra with Nardine

Thursday 9 August 2018

Yoga nidra is also known as yogic sleep…it’s a meditative practice that allows you to come into a deep relaxation and supports you to connect to your body and inner world.

You will likely experience yourself in a level of consciousness somewhere between wakefulness and sleeping as you are guided through a grounding body scan.
Throughout the practice you may drift in and out and not be aware of all that is shared, this is normal and you can be assured that your subconscious will be processing the nourishing practice as you delve into a deep rest. Yoga nidra helps to calm our nervous system, bringing it into balance, supporting a sense of well-being and relaxation

Men’s Circle with Vern

Thursday 20 September 2018

A Men’s circle is a place for Men to have conversations about their life with other men in a supported and a non-judgemental way. It is confidential and allows men the opportunity to witness other men share, as well as be witnessed in their own sharing. There are no expectations and no pressure to participate. Benefits include; a greater sense of self-worth, personal awareness and growth, improved communication and coping skills, a reduction in isolation and a sense of connection and belonging.

The sessions will be facilitated by Vern Hardie, who has been trained in Men’s Circles by Common Ground and also facilitates workshops at the largest men’s gathering in Australia, Menergy.
