Your Breath is your Friend – a year long exploration of breathing Starts Mar 23rd 2023
Your breath is your lifelong friend and something we mainly take for granted unless we have asthma or pneumonia. Recently science caught up with what yoga discovered several thousand years ago – that improving your breathing can improve your health on all levels. You can find lots of fabulous new books on the subject if you want to explore the science behind this, but even better is to actually develop breathing skills and practice them. What I have noticed over the last few years, is that people buy these books, they get all enthusiastic and try the techniques and then sometimes get disheartened. Why is it soooo hard? Why is it making them actually feel panicked? Why is the square breathing not fixing everything like the book said?
The answer to all these questions is that we need to observe what our breathing pattern already is before we try anything fancy. Our breath is so deeply connected to our minds and our bodies that it needs gentle support rather than us swooping in and making demands! This is why I offer a year long s l o w exploration, to give you time to practice, ask questions, try personalised adjustments and get support all along the way. It is also a way to develop a self care practice that will support you regardless of whatever life throws your way.
What happens in this course:
- Observe and unravel how we breath
- Explore how our whole body moves as we breath and assist areas that are tight
- Learn some simple stretches and movements to open the diaphragm
- PLAY with unusual breathing methods to open up further
- Connect mind with breathwork and create happy neural pathways to create calmness
- Learn simple and (eventually) complex pranayama (yogic breathwork) and how to use it for different situations
We meet once a month (either in person or on zoom as suits you) to explore the topic for the month. YOU practice daily and keep a journal. I send out weekly or fortnightly emails to support the practice and then allow time in our sessions to ask questions.
Cost $240 up front or weekly payments of $4.60. The course is around 8 sessions over the course of the year. You are in charge of doing your homework in between sessions! I am a mentor throughout the whole process with regular emails and fluidity to call in extra sessions if needed, speed up or slow down according to the needs of the group. (This group will usually meet on 8 Thursday evenings over the year but I am open to adjusting the day and time to suit the needs of the group.)
Pussy Power – Wednesdays 7-8.30pm Bookings are necessary Loving our Tums starts early 2023
Loving our Tums is a Pussy Power module to accept and love your tummy. This seems to be the part of our bodies that hold shame and judgment. Wouldn’t it be great to make friends with our tums instead, awaken to all the sensations they contain, breathe freely and build a healthy relationship with ourselves? In this module we explore practices to build this relationship using breathwork, abdominal self massage, castor oil toasty packs and gentle yoga. We also explore how to cope with menstrual/ovulation pain, tummy bloat and restoring digestive disorders with yoga nidra. Plus there are some life changing super simple things we can all do to improve our digestion and reduce umcomfy bloating. This weekly 90 min class will include gentle movement and nidra that will restore your energy levels and embrace your tum. $18 waged/$15 unwaged Please book in here

Red Hot Bitches – monthly class for peri/menopausal support – next class 16th Feb Thursday 7-8.30pm $18 waged, $15 unwaged
You got the period talk at school – but has anyone given you the menopause talk? This transition is every bit as huge an upheaval as puberty and yet many women feel they are just expected to truck along behaving normally while their brains rewire, their hearts change tempo, their hormones fluctuate and often in the midst of parenting, holding down a job/career and often caregiving their parents.
This class explains the physical signs and symptoms and how yoga/herbs/ diet etc can help before you race towards hormonal treatment. Plus it goes through the stages of the cyclical rhythm of menopause so that you can understand that this is the beginning of your next phase of life and not just an ending. Ultimately this class is about stepping into your calling and becoming your true self – with much cackling and fun.
Each class addresses one stage of the process and throughout the year there will be two complete cycles of the 5 stages. However feel free to book in as it suits you.
