Join Mark O'Brien for three sessions on 21-22 May 2016 at Canberra Yoga Space.
The first session is a grounding Autumnal yoga practice will integrate many wider aspects of Yoga and Ayurveda with a gentle but intense Vinyasa flow, seasonal pranayama and visualisation to leave you balanced, calm and alive. Expect creative sequences, low, slow, rhythmic movements and to be challenged in unexpected ways to discipline and calm your mind! Mark’s teaching is lively, sometimes irreverent, carefully sequenced and suited to any level of ability and experience.
In the second session you will explore not-kowing - when we understand that there are things that we do not understand, it makes life beautiful and exciting, full of wonders to explore, full of opportunity for new understanding and personal growth. Wonder comes at the beginning of the spiritual journey; the journey to find real truth and solve the mystery of life. If yet another sun salute makes you feel like it’s “Groundhog Day” this session will show you simple ways to awaken your enthusiasm and curiosity as a core value on your spiritual path. Expect Asana, Breathing practices, relaxation and a good dose of fun.
The third workshop will teach you to develop safe, effective, creative classes for all levels of student, and help you integrate broader Yoga principles and insights beyond functional asana… and it will save you masses of time planning brilliant classes! Suitable for teachers and students. You’ll leave with a kit bag of useful principles to adapt to any class situation and some tried and tested class plans. This is an interactive workshop including lecture, small group experiments and some yoga practice.
