Embodied Flow Masterclass
‘R E C E I V I N G  G R A C E’
SAT 2 JUNE 1-3PM
with Jess Kamell
$65 ($52 for Members)

Jess is back! In this Masterclass through the practice of Slow Flow + Yin discover how you can infuse a sense of groundedness in every graceful step you take!

Through stillness and surrender we bond deeply with the earth and receive a felt sense of what it is like to be held and unconditionally supported. Often we get up to move through our lives and we forget to take this with us and end up compensating with rigidity and over effort.

Come and embody the pathways of support available though your bones and joint spaces.

The 8 Limbs of Yoga is a progressive workshop series dedicated to the curious yoga practitioner who seeks to know more of the origins and application of yoga – beyond the physical postures we often identify with in the west.

We will explore the philosophy of traditional yogic texts and connect with them in a personally, meaningful and practical way.

Each month we will explore asana, pranayama, mantra and mudra. There will be lots of discussion and practical exercises to support our learning prior to the physical practices.

Please note, you do not need to attend all 7 workshops; you may be selective, attend one, two.. or maybe all!

Students are encouraged to bring a journal to document their investigations ensuring they take their yoga off their mats and into the world were it really makes a difference.
