Made Janur: Aikido Open Level
This open level class is a great way to learn first-hand about the martial art of Aikido.  Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Ueshiba's goal was to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury.

If you are a beginner, in this 60mins class, you will learn about Aikido through a set of physical exercises designed to demonstrate some of the main principles of Aikido—irimi (entering to meet the opponent), tenkan (body turning to blend and redirect the opponent’s energy) and kuzushi (unbalancing an opponent to prevent further attacks).
For those ready, you will go through a set of standard Aikido drills designed to help you learn how to move in a more efficient manner, how to fall safely and how to interact with your training partner.

AIKIDO
Aikido has been translated as The Way of unifying with life energy, The Art of peace, The Way of centering or Moving Zen. It is a martial art that is performed by blending into the motion of the opponent and redirecting the force of the attack. It is also one particular “Path of Truth” in the Buddhist sense. It is a warrior’s path, yet one which leads us to love our opponent, meeting hostility with peaceful reconciliation and bringing harmony into a hostile situation. Aikido strengthens inner power and deepens your connection with others.

Tymi Howard: Yin Power Of Stillness
Go Deeper!  A 1.5 hour Deep Yin Practice, artistically woven and challenging. All Levels Welcome. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.

Sydel Weinstein: Early Morning Mindfulness
Mindfulness is the bringing of our whole attention and sensing to the present moment non judgementally. In practice, mindfulness is a dance of remembering and forgetting, drifting and returning. We witness the rhythm of our breath, coming and going of sensations, passing of thoughts and feelings and the spaces between. Our intention is to travel with kindness, planting the seeds of self-compassion as we journey. We play with mindfulness qualities of acceptance, wonder and curiosity. In this field of awareness, we are all beginners.
 
Early Morning is a particularly potent time to practice as our bodies and minds awaken to the new day.
 
For our Monday morning session, our intention will be to deepen into mind-body connection and body awareness. Practices will include calming and grounding with loving kindness, mindful movement and yoga, a body-scan, sound awareness, walking meditation, the practice of the half-smile, and mindful sitting in silence.

We will explore Heart Flow synchronising breath with movement deepening into awareness of rhythm and resonance. Our practices will be heart-based and will begin with attuning to our sense of belonging and connection to land, self and community. We will weave in practices of gratefulness, wishing well and compassion.

Hemalayaa: The Goddess Within Every Woman - A Journey Of Remembering And Returning Home
There is a Goddess residing within every woman: at least one, and I want to teach you how to inspire her to come out and play more!!

The Goddess is an aspect of us that is beautiful, fierce, sensual, intuitive, powerful and wise. She is there through our best moments, radiating brightly like the sun. She’s there in our most trying moments when we’re angry, sad or heartbroken. She is the great supporter. She is the radiant essence of ourselves. But too often there are moments of great self-doubt and self-judgment when the inner criticism takes over and disconnects you from your true essence. Your true essence is a force of nature, a power-woman, and a bold, sensual ALIVE woman!

The Goddess wants to support you from the inside out, are you going to receive her blessings?
What would happen if you knew exactly what you want to do, and how to do it? And, what if nothing was wrong?

This workshop offers a cornucopia of practical tools, all guided with Hemalayaa’s trademark charm, good humor, yoga, dance, meditation, and spiritual transformational exercises to enable you to reach this critical point of being—of embodying your intuitive, sexy, powerful, and radiant truth.

Amanda Jane Williams: Break Through To Break Free
There are an infinite amount of problems and issues that we face in our daily lives.
Regardless of culture, the most common struggles are financial, body image/ shame
and a healthy ego. Most people have 1 or 2 areas of their life that they constantly
struggle with.

We all dream about a bigger bank account or worry to protect your hard earned
assets. We all are guilty of negative thoughts, nasty physical comparisons, and the
classic “I am not enough!” We all strive to live a happy, full life.


IT’S NOT OUT OF YOUR CONTROL
Parental social conditioned statements have altered the way we express and handle
our emotions. Before we were able to decide a healthy mindset for ourselves, we
were shut down with statements such as:
“Stiff upper lip”
“Don’t be such a baby”
“I’m too busy/tired to deal with this
right now!”
“Go to your room”
“I’m not made of money.”
“You don’t always get what you want.’
“Rich people are…...(negative)”
“Poor people are…....(negative)

Our younger years at school can be a soul destroying place to spend 12+ years, too.
You are either the bully or being bullied, feel isolated and singled out, and are given
tests that engrave feelings of comparison. Even teachers can shatter a student’s
confidence and overall morale. Cognitive and motivational mediators of indirect
effects continue to exert influence on individual development outside and beyond
school. And so begins the acquisition of fear.

Hillary Hitt: Bio-Spiritual Nutrition
Human beings are living at a historical turning point on planet earth. Yogis, students of truth and wellness, housewives, artists, bankers, CEOs, doctors and lawyers are becoming awake to the fact that all life on earth is endowed with a consciousness of the highest frequencies of divine Light.  As we evolve on our path toward awakening, connecting to the cosmic source, and Mother Nature; co-creating, dreaming and cooperating with our brothers and sisters around the planet; caring for each other and offering our services, we hunger for foods and a way of life that resonates with these higher frequencies; higher frequencies of divine light from the Sun that nourish, sustain, cleanse and enhance our body, mind and spirit, during our challenging journey.

When we feed and flow with our Higher Light, our Divine Self, we are empowered and overcome all that blocks, inhibits, weakens or pulls us away from our inherent gifts of freedom, coherence, and “sur-thrival”.

In this amazing workshop, we discuss the many diverse bio-spiritual nutrients of our favorite foods and the food industries. We touch on Vitamins, Minerals, phytonutrients, including carbohydrates, fats and proteins as well as enzymes, and pro and pre-biotics. And as the discussion proceeds, we redesign our minds, our rituals, our meals and our schedules to be in resonance with our hunger for the highest bio-spiritual nutrition on planet earth.

Self - Love is THE most radical form of activism.  It is an invitation to view ourselves from a place of immense compassion, forgiveness and ultimately love.  Throughout this workshop we explore our definitions of love and how these have been formed.  Throughout this experiential process, we uncover limiting beliefs that lurk in our subconscious about the concept of love.  Simply put, self - love is an invitation to look into the mirror that is our lives and with grace and courage embrace who we are, our imperfections especially. With breath, movement and deep inquiry we are returned to love, our birthright.  An unusual request: mobile phones are required for this workshop .

Anjuna, Sarah & Zarah: The Daughters and Sons Of Isis - ISIS ACTIVATION
We invoke the oldest Shaman on Earth "Goddess Isis" to awake the sacred woman and sacred man for the new "Paradise Paradigma" on Earth.

She activates the divine power and abundance within you, through her golden wings and nourishes you with pure love and wisdom.

Deeply listening to receive the transmission of your wisdom. Purifying your energy body to create space for Shakti to rise. To feel the pulse of life force, the current of the feminine opening you, softening you, enlivening you and dancing you home to grace. To live life fully embodied as the powerful, creative, radiant women you are.

Under the guidance of the frequencies of the feminine, the Goddesses, elementals, Angelics and beyond we will dive deep inside, using the body as the template. Together we will shed layers, clear old programs and awaken new pathways to reclaim our ecstatic energetic nature and return to our original innocence. To experience who we are beyond the identity that we know and uncover the magic that lies within.

It is a sacred invitation to come to know yourself as the radiant woman or man, the sensual one, the powerful one, who has reclaimed her voice and her sovereignty.
The person who stands as an open vessel, a bridge between heaven and earth. Not afraid of her/his shadow as she/he knows the purity and power of her light. The woman/man who owns her/his power as the creation of her/his reality, energetic alchemist and priestess of Gaia. She/He knows it is her/his time to rise as she/he has a sacred mission for the New Earth.

Program:

• cleanse the chakra system and opening our voices with the resonance of mantra.
• Shakti yoga and somatic movement to shift suppressed emotion, awaken sensuality, returning to our primal wild nature.
• Archetypes of the feminine and how they express in our world.
• Clearing and activating the sacred womb portal, plugging into womb wisdom, the codes of our sacred cycle and blood mysteries.
• Women’s and men's alchemy to cleanse and clear the aura and arc line from past lovers and experiences
• Taoist and tantric techniques to awaken our sexual energy and ignite our inner fire of creation
• Sacred healing circles to activate life force and connect you to the wisdom of your soul
• Transmission of the pure Christ Light of love, innocence and beauty.

Akiko Mega: Manifesting Desires, The Magic of Swiping Right
Did you know… swiping doesn’t always have to be about dates and hookups! In fact, I’ve used them to get to know myself better in a kind of Brutally honest way. The encounters- when and if they even happen- can be about friendship, business opportunities (Legit ones! Corporate ones!), or just simple observation.

In this workshop, Akiko will share her experiences manifesting desire into real life- and guide you through the creative process of pairing desire with authentic action to move dreams into reality.

Some of the things we’ll explore:
  • How do we see ourselves?
  • What do we want?
  • How do we talk about ourselves and represent ourselves? 
  • Creating a new language/story around who we are, what we want, what excites us
  • Creating invitations for what we want
The yes/no binary process of swiping helps us to get clarity around what we want and get out of our own way- and quickly. The process allows desire, authenticity, action, and presence to manifest what we want to invite into our lives- whether it’s a relationship, a more fulfilling career, building your dream business, or living more authentically and honouring who you are. This is a practice in saying yes, saying no and taking action.

What to bring:
  • Your awesome self! 
  • Your openness, authenticity, curiosity
  • Your desires!  
  • Current photos of yourself that capture your spirit or doing something you truly love!
  • Notebook/paper and something to write with
  • Wear something that makes you look and feel great. That means truly good. Wear something you can move around in, and feel comfortable throughout the day. 

A note for participants in existing relationships:

If you are in a loving, close relationship (not open to new or outside partners), give your partner(s) a heads up that you will be using a dating app in a workshop as a tool to learn about communication and manifesting dreams. Feel free to show them this page, if it helps.

For people in exclusive relationships who might not want to open an account, I have something for you, too: safe and relationship-honouring ways to engage in this practice!

Integral Grounding focuses on the deeper principles of post ceremonial grounding and integration. Our series will give you the keys to instantly snap back to your centre and maintain your space as a true energetic sovereign
 
When the ceremony is over, the real work begins. Developing our capacity to be rooted and grounded in any given situation is the most important aspect of this work. As we go through the different stages of awakening and remembrance, we begin to access the higher states of consciousness and expression. How do we ground our elevated states into the physical realm? How do we integrate our expansiveness into everyday travels? How do we apply those feelings of elation and release into our daily lives so they are not lost in the chaos of the 3D world?

Join us for this 4-part journey where we offer the keys to Integral Grounding. Some of the themes we will cover and delve deeper into are:
 
•           Anchor Point Awareness
•           Accessing your sovereignty
•           Snap backgrounding
•           Ceremonial balance and boundaries
•           Principles of holding and maintaining space

Inspired by a series of poems on connection to divine love by Sufi poets, Rumi, Hafiz, & Lala, this workshop is designed to take you through the doorway of dizziness, to the land of childlike glee as you return to the simple act of spinning. Children are natural spinners. You, too, can use this simple and profound tool to spin your chakras, emptying excess energy, while replacing depleted energy.

Dancing with Rumi uses the structure of the Vibrance Dance & Song™ practice to introduce the eight doorways or portals to becoming an ecstatic dancer and poet. These portals open the 8 chakras and invite the embodiment of the quality each governs: Grounded, Creative, Empowered, Heartful, Truthful, Visionary, Conscious and Energized.

Join Ellen & Daphne for letting go of old baggage, spinning your chakras and returning to the playground of your childhood. Be prepared for ecstatic moments. Best on an empty stomach, barefooted, in the grass.

Hillary Hitt : Archetypal Astrology Part 1
From the beginning of civilization, humans have mastered understanding an exciting energetic symbolic-network of intercommunication between their body, nature and the heavens. Through thousands of years of observation, our ancestors discovered that each planet is endowed with a specific vibrational frequency of light, as well as specific universal characteristics. In addition planets and stars were found in different locations in the skies called signs, and at any one moment in time can be mapped out for understanding.
 
But the discoveries go further than this. The various planetary energies were found to directly affect a person’s body parts, mental and emotional states and spiritual depth, with certain events taking place at very particular times in their life.
 
Countless numbers of these planetary energies and characteristics have been documented and created into a brilliant language of universal symbols or “archetypes”, called Archetypal Astrology.
Since the 3rd millennium, BC Archetypal Astrology has been used to decipher unfathomable amounts of hidden information quite often found in many of the world religions, science or art forms. A matrix of this language, called an astrology chart was designed and at specific times created for interpretation, revealing miraculous detailed information concerning a person, their relationships, an event or a particular question.
 
*In Part 1 we orient to the chart structure, talk about archetypes of the 12 signs and their ruling planets. 3 hours. Part 2 we go deeper by looking at the natal charts of participants and talk about how to read them. 4 hours per day, the number of days depends on the number of participants.
This workshop could be made into a longer course of 4 days.

Anna Tonnon And Catur Hariwijaya: Sound Alchemy
A journey towards our inner transformation through ancient healing practices.

Starting from the principle that everything in the universe is vibration, during the workshop we will use the power of Sound combined with ancient traditional practices, as a tool to heal body, mind, and spirit on a vibrational level. Sound is not only experienced through the ears – sound waves impact all levels of our being. Our ancestors were quite aware of that power and for many centuries they used sound, rhythms and vibrations with their drums, gongs, flutes, chants or Mantras to achieve many states of mind, health, trance and spirit.

Anna & Catur will guide us through a transformative Sound Journey, an inner alchemy to awaken our higher potentials, to change the flow of energy for our spiritual growth and to eventually access the un-manifested sound, the meaningful silence within our hearts.

During the Sound Alchemy journey, we will explore many traditional and holistic techniques such as African drums, grounding movements, Nada Yoga, Mantras, sacred sound meditation, and sound bath.

Ulaach Tez: Voice Activation
Kura Yoga is a combination of different Yoga disciplines customized for Tibetan Monks and practised in Tuva and Western Mongolia. 

Khura (Kura) Yoga is an ancient and secretive Yoga practice discipline developed by Tibetan Monks and brought to Mongolia in the 17th century to keep warm during harsh winter temperatures as it is an intense practice. After the Socialism revolution, it almost disappeared due to the destruction of most templates in Mongolia and Tibet. However, a handful of monks kept the knowlage and passed it on strictly to red hat monks. The emphasis is on the fingers and toes especially the pinky finger as it is believed to conn ect directly to the heart.

After the 9 breath Tibetan meditation the practice starts with simple welcoming the Sun positions. It intensifies to positions for strength and balance while swaying on each side. Many positions depict animal movements such as Tiger, Snake, wolf, Yak and Eagle. Basically, it focuses on awareness of pinky pressure, swaying and breathing.

A very gentle chakra-based experience is an uplifting, unique workshop that supports grieving as an ongoing process.  Yoga for Living with Loss provides the support for body, mind, and spirit in navigating how we live from moment to moment, day to day, with our deep losses. Grief happens as much in our bodies as in our hearts and minds.  

As we breathe with mindfulness, as we move with awareness, as we stay connected to the present, we can learn how to cherish our memories, acknowledge our pain, and release grief that can stay trapped in our physical bodies. Yoga for Living with Loss connects us to our bodies so that we can maintain our well-being as we continue to live, and even thrive while embracing our losses without getting lost.

Open to anyone who has experienced loss of a loved one, a job, a home, pet, or any of life’s transitions. No yoga experience necessary.

OSHO No-Dimension (sometimes referred to as Sufi-Dance Meditation) is a powerful active meditation created by Osho and inspired by Gurdjeff, based on the heart-centered Sufi tradition, which uniquely uses repetitive dance & whirling to bring awareness to our hara (center). So often we are pulled into the cyclone of impermanence, misidentification, circular thoughts, and runaway emotions; this technique empowers us through dance to find the center of the cyclone and to rest in a place of witnessing, untouched and unaffected by the peripheral storm. Come and enjoy this dance meditation and let it lead you to your Self. Suitable for beginners or advanced practitioners and modifications are available for those with physical limitations.

Melody believes that we are darkness as well as light and that it is important to recognize both sides of the coin to keep the body and mind balanced.

The lotus blossom is a beautiful metaphor. It is the symbol of the heart. It is also connected to Lakshmi. This workshop Alchemy of Love is inspired by and dedicated to Lakshmi. She is the goddess of prosperity and abundance, pleasure and desire.

The lotus is one of the most beautiful flowers in the world and represents compassion, wisdom, and spiritual growth. The lotus is also the symbol of the heart connected to Lakshmi, who is the goddess of expansion, prosperity and abundance, pleasure and desire. The word "Lak" means 100,000 in its literal sense, and it represents infinity because Lakshmi is the Mother of all giving and receiving! She is the goddess of Fortune and limitless creativity and fertility. Thus, invoking Lakshmi elevates our spirits and helps us to expand instead of contract.

If you’re looking to manifest abundance and invite MORE love into your life - one way we can do that is by educating ourselves on the powers of Lakshmi.

During this workshop, you will learn to create a balance between giving and receiving, concealing and revealing—and the 5 common causes of imbalance. Learn how to become in sync with nature, redefine happiness and leave feeling stronger and kinder. Join me in this workshop and feel this for yourself.

Hillary Hitt: Fasting As A Path To Dharma
In the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, fasting—“vasting”, or Upavasa, is considered a religious law, ethical and economic practice and jurisprudence of abstaining from food and the material world. Upa means to stay up; and vasa means with God, nature or Dharma. As a way of life our genes, DNA, mitochondria, microbiome, cells, glands, stomachs and hormones, mind and Chakras, thrive on no food, while the spirit of our unity one with God/Dharma is reborn . . . Fasting is a sacred practice when the mind commits to a higher purpose and the body surrenders to its perfect flow, cleansing, and rebirth.

Fasting is like a long-held Yoga pose. When you practice fasting periodically, during different life-stages you go back to the beginning of who you are—renewing your perspective, regenerating your awareness, connecting to the rawness of an empty stomach, while giving birth to what it means to be a human being with an inherent dedication and inspiration to follow a spiritually healthy way of life, continually into your older years.

In this very interesting and valuable workshop, we will discuss the reasons why we fast, the world we live in, and the different types of fasting. We go through the immune and digestive systems, our Karmic Life History and our Divine Immune Intelligence. We call on participants to share experiences and stories, answer personal questions, and recommend different fasting protocols for individuals with specific issues. We share

Breath-initiated movement is the movement that is initiated and guided by conscious breathing, where each inhale and exhale sets into motion a movement. You move slowly with full awareness. Practising any movement regime in this way offers much more than the typical workout because while you are creating a healthy body, you are also calming the chaotic storm in the mind, the relentless critical noise and drama. Then, when your mind and nervous system are calm, you see life differently. I have observed it positively impact thousands of lives, mentally, emotionally, and physically.

While allopathy has a slew of disastrous side effects, Ayurveda and naturopathy are absolutely safe and practical to use.

Daniel Rojas: Embodied Dance Movement
Embodied Dance Movement (EDM) is a unique, multi-layered movement methodology created by Daniel *Sonic* Rojas from an accumulation of more than 25 years experience as a professional dancer and movement enthusiast, created through intense self-practice and a deepening journey of experiencing movement in a holistic, integrative way. Drawing from personal, channelled dance energy and a dedicated self-practice of various movement cultures, this experiential & intuitive art form brings together movement, musicality and emotions, as a means to inspire greater understanding of the human form and potential.

Through its integrative approach, EDM dissolves the boundaries between different movement cultures with the aim of giving individuals a unique way of expressing themselves, deepening body awareness, connecting to feeling and developing an intelligent self-practice of conscious movement. The foundational levels of EDM develop alignment, strength, flexibility, mobility, coordination and feeling behind movement through isolations, animalistic work, creative callisthenics, the embodiment of emotion, partner work, contemporary movement techniques and bioenergetic flows between movement and stillness.

We learn skills to transform life’s tribulations and rites of passage in order to emerge as our own heroines. We allow for an empty presence and inner listening to allow our inner ‘gnosis’ to expand.

Amisha Ghadiali: Yoga With Goddess Lakshmi - Rise Up And Live
This is a yoga workshop that is themed around the Goddess Lakshmi, the Indian Goddess of love and abundance. I take the myth from a tantric perspective (not the sexy stuff but the philosophical world view). We awaken the Lakshmi qualities inside us through myth, mantra, meditation, yoga asana and a little play. For this workshop, I can even dress up as Goddess Lakshmi complete with extra arms, elephants and a sari. Throughout the yoga asana, we act out the story, feeling it in every cell of our bodies. We learn the power of uniting the different parts of ourselves (our inner demons and our inner light) and will connect to what we can give back through our abundance.

Ciara McArdle: TRE ®: Tension & Trauma Release
TRE ®: Tension & Trauma Release (foundations of Neurogenic Yoga)
TRE® is a simple yet profound Stress Release Tool that reactivates an Innate Healing Mechanism in the body. It is a series of simple exercises that stretch and activate key muscle groups, particularly the psoas muscle, to trigger a natural reflex of shaking and trembling in the body. These Self Induced Therapeutic Tremors (SITT) release excess charge in your nervous system, encouraging your body and mind to return to a state of balance, alignment and harmony.

Ciara will give a brief overview of the most up-to-date understanding of how Stress, Tension and Trauma operate in the Body, Mind and Psyche. Learn about the Innate Healing Capacity of the body and how it is often dampened in our physiology, how it can be switched back on and fostered, to bring more healing, peace, alignment and openness into life!

In this session, you will be taken through the set of 7 simple TRE exercises and experience the practice for yourself. TRE is suitable for all ages and fitness levels and exercises can be adapted to varying body types. Everyone can benefit from TRE® as we all hold tension in our bodies to varying degrees. However, if you are pregnant, have a history of epilepsy, or severe trauma, then it is best not to do TRE in a group setting and discuss with your local TRE provider.

Some Benefits of TRE®
• The release of deep chronic tension, stress and anxiety
• Reduced muscle, shoulder and back pain, sciatica
• Better sleep, calmer mind
• Reduced symptoms of PTSD
• More energy and endurance
• Greater emotional resilience
• Increased flexibility
• Healing of old injuries/operations/traumas
• Feeling more grounded in your body
BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON TRE ®

TRE is based on the fundamental idea, backed by recent research, that stress, tension and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE, many people report feelings of peace and well-being.

Tonny Chang: Restorative Rocket
Restorative Rocket is a practice based on the Rocket Vinyasa Flow developed by Larry Schultz for introducing students to the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois greatest practice. The Rocket method is applied in its softest version on this class so the practitioner can taste the Rocket feeling without worry about challenging poses too much.

A long term Restorative Rocket practice can easily lead the practitioner to more easily attend to Rocket Vinyasa classes and in the end, have a safe basis to the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa practice.

火箭理疗是一种基础的火箭流瑜伽的串联,它源自于Larry Schultz。为了给学生们介绍Sri K. Pattabhi Jois极好的练习。在这个课程中,火箭的方法被应用于它最为柔和的版本,因此练习者们既能够品尝到火箭的感觉又不用担心体式的变化有多过于复杂。一个较长时期的火箭理疗练习,能够很容易地去引导练习者以更为简单的方式参于到火箭序列的课程中去,最终有个更为安全,基础的传统阿斯汤加流派的练习。

Ronan Tang: Qi Flow Yoga
Breath-initiated movement is the movement that is initiated and guided by conscious breathing, where each inhale and exhale sets into motion a movement. You move slowly with full awareness. Practising any movement regime in this way offers much more than the typical workout because while you are creating a healthy body, you are also calming the chaotic storm in the mind, the relentless critical noise and drama. Then, when your mind and nervous system are calm, you see life differently. I have observed it positively impact thousands of lives, mentally, emotionally, and physically. A breath-initiated movement does not just open your muscles and joints, it opens your eyes and heart, and you see a brand new world.

Sydel Weinstein: Early Morning Mindfulness
Mindfulness is the bringing of our whole attention and sensing to the present moment non judgementally. In practice, mindfulness is a dance of remembering and forgetting, drifting and returning. We witness the rhythm of our breath, coming and going of sensations, passing of thoughts and feelings and the spaces between. Our intention is to travel with kindness, planting the seeds of self-compassion as we journey. We play with mindfulness qualities of acceptance, wonder and curiosity. In this field of awareness, we are all beginners.

Early Morning is a particularly potent time to practice as our bodies and minds awaken to the new day.

For our Monday morning session, our intention will be to deepen into mind-body connection and body awareness. Practices will include calming and grounding with loving kindness, mindful movement and yoga, a body-scan, sound awareness, walking meditation, the practice of the half-smile, and mindful sitting in silence.

We will explore Heart Flow synchronising breath with movement deepening into awareness of rhythm and resonance. Our practices will be heart-based and will begin with attuning to our sense of belonging and connection to land, self and community. We will weave in practices of gratefulness, wishing well and compassion.

Atin Heryatin: Pilates - Synergy In Motion
Pilates is a series or body movement consisting of many elements,  oversees body as a level of muscles-nerves, and uniting body & mind. It uses established Contrology to control and develop the nerve system, focusing on flexibility, but still aware of your body strength. It fixes body alignment and pushes or restore the perfect balance. As a result, it activates the liquid in the body that starts to slow down to work effectively, especially for stopping the tiredness from mental and nerve balance through body liquid. The brain will be clearer and mental strength will function well.

Pilates will change how you move, feel, think and your appearance. They also teach you how to use your body effectively in your daily life. Pilates will help you to be proud of yourself, have a long lasting life and find a new way from your mind to your body.

Pilates is an easy exercise of mild "thinking", to help your body and mind to work in harmony so they can "produce" a well, healthy and blusterous being. It will help to develop a calm and relax mind through a posture and breathwork as the key elements.

When we have sex mindfully and with the awareness that it can heal us and help us to expand our aura, we open doors in our lives that we never even knew existed. Eastern cultures like India, China, Japan had extensive texts on the dos and don’t’s of sexual practices.  For example, while almost all of us experience orgasm from the first or second chakra of our body, with awareness we can use the ancient practices to experience our orgasm from the seventh chakra of our body.  In this discussion, Bijay will be leading us through some very important aspects of how sex can either heal us or deplete our health and also shred some myths associated with it.

Tom Lang: The Art Of Writing A Love Letter
“A great love letter can open hearts, build bridges, and heal wounds.”
--Tom Lang

Although a great picture may be worth a thousand words, well thought out and well-written words are able to paint an emotional masterpiece for the receiver and the creator of those words. A picture, especially a picture in our heads, fades over time. Sincere words are etched forever in the arteries that feed our hearts.
Especially, the words in a love letter.

There are love notes and love letters and love stories. In this workshop, Tom Lang will help you build a love letter full of little love notes to tell a love story to everyone in your life, be it partner, family or friends.
Bring a pen and paper and with Tom’s simple story prompts you will leave with a sweet love letter for a loved one. Tom Lang divides his time between Ubud, Bali and Haines, Alaska. Tom teaches writing workshops and seminars on many themes, from love letter writing to fable writing.

Rusty Davis: Yoga Anatomy Through The Fascia System
Yoga is one of the most powerful methods of purification and strengthening that a human can practice but what exactly are we purifying and strengthening?  When we explore, feel and move through the fascia system our bodies unfold into an array of layers that work together but sometimes the layers can be stuck causing blockages to show up in the body.  These blockages could be emotional, patterns of sitting or carrying ourselves in the day to day situations we encounter.

During this workshop, we will explore the anatomy and functions of fascia like glide, adaptability, force transmission or bounce and Tensegrity. Using the methodology of Spirit Journey Yoga movements, we can gain a deeper understanding of our bodies. We will explore the different Fascial lines as taught in Anatomy Trains by Thomas Meyers and move through different yoga asanas and active release movements to observe and then open blockages within each line.

Anatomy can be such a complex study of the human body and confusion can leave you feeling low. I promise that through this study, you will learn about your body without all the “big” words. Feeling and present moment awareness is the basis of what Spirit Journey Yoga is all about. No experience needed, just a will to go the extra millimetre to freedom and explore the four simple steps of creating freedom of movement inside you.

Hillary Hitt: Introduction to Iridology
Our body is a highly designed work of art with thousands of blood vessels, nerves and receptors, muscles, organs and organelles of which are organized in such a manner that we can reflect on the interconnectedness of who we are. Practices like the doshas from Ayurveda, the meridians from Traditional Chinese Medicine; traditional Thai Massage, foot and hand Reflexology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Palmistry; Reading Auras, fingerprints, and the human energy field, as well as Kinesiology have distinct maps for reading, diagnosing and treating the whole person.

One system of diagnosis that has been around since the 1600s is Iridology. In Iridology we look for an extremely defined set of symbols, shapes and markings, a language like no other that can be practically and intuitively utilized to determine various health conditions and predispositions of a person.
Iridology brings forth a general and often quite holistic medical portrait and history of a person or an animal. Thus the Science and Practice of Iridology is a brilliant guide not only for a medical practitioner but also to lead each of us into ourselves, determining what types of alternative-functional, complementary or allopathic medical interventions may be required.

To be trained in the incredible universe of the iris is the most interesting and humbling experience any human being can have. Why? It’s because Iridiagnosis looks at the “whole person”, as the whole person looks at you. In this workshop, we introduce the very intricate matrix of the iris with pictures demonstrating various types of health conditions.

Raphael Mello: Yoga, Ego, Suffering
The Yoga practice opens a door for a complete investigation, re-shaping our way of thinking, living in society and dealing with emotions. In order to become more conscious of our own actions, mindfulness is extremely important to cultivate self- development and growth.

Feeling of loss, depression, and anxiety are just a few of the emotions that can create suffering and are experienced by all human beings at certain stages in their lives. The practice of Yoga is not about pushing those sensations away, but instead, to learn how to work intimately and gain deeper understanding and compassion that can be channelled towards transformation.

In this workshop we will look at the patterns of the mind through the teachings of Patanjali, emphasizing on the 5 sufferings (klesas) and how they tend to affect our lives on and off the mat. The practice of mindfulness meditation will bring a deeper understanding of the mental patterns we have, the image of the self and emptiness, helping us to gain insights and change behaviours.

Uma Dinsmore-Tulli: Postlineage Yoga & Yoga Nidra
What is post-lineage yoga? And how do we practice it? You are invited to come and explore this creative and empowering response to the present authority crisis in the world of yoga. This is where the political gets personal, and the spiritual get practical. 

Post-lineage yoga is a term coined by UK yogini Dr Theodora Wildcroft PhD. We’ll explore her work in this session - learning from some great examples of how we can grow in our yoga connection
• a community of knowledge
• a network of knowing
• an open web of sharing. 

Post lineage yoga  is not anti-lineage, it is not no-lineage - it is simply a way to move to a more sustainable structure of authority,  dependent on good community relationships
Postlineage yoga is 
• checking and honouring your sources of knowledge rather than simple replication without considering 
• honouring one's internal teacher and experience 
• network community which enables honest, safe communication to adapt to every individual

Postlineage yoga 
• Finds connections rather than offers  an answer
• Democratises knowledge, broadening appeal by opening out to all sections of society. 
• Makes practice inclusive. 
• Allows all voices to be heard

Come discuss, encounter and consider how to 
• value diversity, teach self-agency, honour sources, sustain community 

Postlineage yoga is 
• an invitation to others to discover themselves through their interactions in a place of safety 

Yoga gives us the keys to freedom.  Everybody welcome. This session will include a practice of Total Yoga Nidra, so please bring a shawl or a sarong to cover yourself when you rest.

Noviana Kusumawardhani: TAROT - Go Deeper into Your Soul’s Journey
When we use the Tarot, we begin to open the psychic centres of our mind; our psychic self. Our psychic self is our spiritual self. When we do anything to awaken our spiritual self, we begin the path to our spiritual awakening. Tarot is a powerful tool for self-healing, personal empowerment, and spiritual development. This class will not only give you a glimpse of how the Tarot really works but encourages you to explore your own inner guidance as you progress along the course.

Gypsy: S.A.Y LOVE! (Sex and Yoga) Love, Sex and Yoga
Are you seeking to awaken your pleasure and connection to love?

To discover, to relax, and to know yourself, LOVE yourself, and become at ease to contain and expand kundalini sexual energy is vital for SEX or a powerful YOGA session. Love, Sex, and Yoga share what we all share in union with the Divine. Creative, Orgasmic Life-force!

Move and stretch with Asana and flowing dance, cultivating your own intentions. Then explore in a group how your Chakras and Astrological signs influence the way you love, have sex, and practice yoga. Develop skills that give you more reverence to appreciate your life by pleasuring yourself, and experience something you have intimately within you.

As you commit, trust, and learn to surrender, LOVE, SEX, and YOGA will transcend you. The little parts of you that get in your way, your defenses, your ego and chatter mind, can all be dissolved through a powerful yoga session….deep love or life-shifting sex.

Ronan Tang: Qi Flow Yoga
Breath - initiated movement is the movement that is initiated and guided by conscious breathing, where each inhale and exhale sets into motion a movement. You move slowly with full awareness. Practising any movement regime in this way offers much more than the typical workout because while you are creating a healthy body, you are also calming the chaotic storm in the mind, the relentless critical noise and drama. Then, when your mind and nervous system are calm, you see life differently. I have observed it positively impact thousands of lives, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Breath - initiated movement does not just open your muscles and joints, it opens your eyes and heart, and you see a brand new world.


Wonder Flow for the curious explorer, a functional vinyasa flow for all ages and levels. Let your spine dance! Keep it active and alive and let your inner light shine through. Discover some new movement using a creative functional vinyasa flow sequence designed to reveal the new possibilities of what your spine can do and how far it can go in every direction. This purposeful sequence of poses is going to awaken, strengthen and open your entire body, developing an articulate conversation between your body and your mind. Explore what the body can do to its fullest potential! This is an opportunity for you to gently work for the fear of unfamiliarities, the unknown, and the unseen in order to create more freedom within.
