Yin Zone: Space & Stillness ~ Going Deeper Within
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 24TH, 3.00PM – 5.00PM
Teacher: Polly Wilson
Fee: $40

 

For many of us the lead up to Christmas and the New Year can be incredibly busy, and for some, even stressful. If we are constantly in ‘go’ mode, our nervous system stays on high alert. It can be hard to wind down, and as a result, we can feel ‘burnt out’ or more fatigue than usual. This month’s Yin Zone will be an opportunity to really carve out some space and stillness just for you for some well needed ‘me time’. Not focused on any one meridian in the body, this practice will be a full body yin practice including some restorative postures for extra relaxation and nourishment. With less talking by the teacher, and more chance to experience, you might even find yourself floating off in a cloud of bliss by the end of the class! As always, this will be a holistic practice, incorporating Yin Yoga poses, Restorative Yoga poses, Pranayama (breath practice), Relaxation and Meditation.

Meet Polly

Like many, what started out as a purely physical practice with time I started to notice the shifts that were occurring as a part of this re-discovery of body, breath and mind. Yoga has brought me back to myself with a new sense of freedom and peace I didn’t know possible, and helped me to heal from chronic anxiety. Through my experience I am passionate about creating a nurturing space for others to heal and discover more about their own true nature. I do this by combining my personal experience with my various trainings in Yoga, Counselling and Embodiment practices to hold a non-judgemental and empowering space without any dogma or fancy tricks. I find Yoga to be the most impactful when it is meditative, fluid, slow and breath-centred. I am dedicated to my own continual practice as well as professional development and and have over 1000 hours of teacher training including 500 hour Advanced Teacher Training from the Byron Yoga Centre, 80 Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Jo Phee, 100 hour Embodied Mindfulness Teacher Training with Tina Nance , 30 hrs of Yoga Psychology online training with Ashley Turner, 220 hours of Yoga Therapy training with Adore Yoga and 200 hour Women’s Self Care Yoga Teacher Training with Emily Kuser and Women’s Yoga Therapist, Uma Dinsmore Tuli. Yep, I’m pretty much obsessed with learning all things Yoga!

Monthly Sunday Sadhana
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 2ND, 6.00 – 7.30AM
Teacher: Dhyan Mantra
Fee: By donation (all proceeds donated to Coast Shelter)

 

“… Sadhana is a self enriching practice which is not done to please others or gain something… it’s a personal process to bring out your best” – Yogi Bhajan

Sadhana covers all bases including prayer, breathwork, exercise/asana, meditation and mantra/chanting. It daily practice and it is your daily practice or spiritual effort. The purpose of Sadhana is to create time to consciously sit with the soul, to connect to the infinity with you. It’s usually done first thing in the morning during the ambrosial hours at least two to three hours before sunrise when the sun is at a sixty degree angle to the Earth because this is when you get maximum results from your efforts. During this time, there is stillness before the world around you wakes up and it’s much easier to meditate and focus. Sadhana is a discipline and it will challenge you and you will face up to all aspects of yourself; resistance, boredom, discomfort.
As the team at Ramadasa explains, “the reward is clearing your subconscious mind, sweeping out old stored patterns and allowing space to be more present and live with greater vitality and sense of connectedness to your own infinity”.

Experience Sadhana with Dhyan Mantra on the first Sunday of every month. It is a community practice with donations accepted and all funds going to Coast Shelter.
