Regular Yoga Workshops

Next workshop:

Sat, Nov 19th 1:15pm: Spinal Engagement Series: The Top – Chest, Shoulders, Neck

Following from our first session which focused on the base of the spine, we move up to the thoracic, shoulders and neck. What movements are possible and how can we engage them safely and fully? How do structures like head and arms relate into this region of the spine?
Expect to spruce up on anatomy, understand the weaknesses and strengths of the area and play with explorations 🙂
You are of course welcome if you’ve missed the first part.

Please book in!

Time: 1:15pm
Location: Dance of Life, Fitzroy
All practitioners, all experiences welcome

Community Class every last Sunday of the Month 3-4.30pm with Annie

This class is designed for everyone. In order to make yoga accessible, this class is offered on a plastic note donation basis (suggested). In line with the philosophy of accessibility and inclusivity, all levels are welcome. Whether it is your very first time doing yoga or you have been practicing for 30 years. The class caters to all needs and levels, with lots of options so everyone feels comfortable to either move slowly (or not at all) or to push themselves and explore the more challenging aspects of yoga.
