- the yin within
Saturday May 23
10am – 12:30pm
$30 + gst
Prepare your body for the transition from spring to summer with this meditative yin experience.
Join Amanda on a deeper exploration of Yin Yoga. During this workshop you will learn how the postures affect your connective tissues, why that is of benefit to your body, and mindfulness will be explored.
The Yin aspect of Yoga (using postures that stretch connective tissue) brings a balanced approach to physical and mental health. This brings about a meditative state through holding stillness and focusing inward. Yin is a vital complimentary practice for anyone seeking greater balance in their lives, a self practiced therapeutic healing technique, increased range of motion, or a tool for meditation, plus many more benefits.
Be prepared to explore yin postures and sink deep into a mindfulness meditation.
- grow your roots
Sunday May 24
9:30am – 1:00pm

Understanding the purpose of the postures we do in class and the proper ways to execute them is one of the keys to deepening your yoga practice. This playful workshop will focus on developing body awareness and expanding your knowledge on how to properly engage your muscles and achieve correct alignment in poses. This interactive practice will give you the opportunity to work with a partner to gain better awareness of movement by observing yourself and others. Engage with a group of students through discussion as we work together to take our bodies further into poses. There is no right or wrong in your practice, but this workshop will help you learn to open your body further, in a safe and mindful manner.
