Johnny's Winter Workshop 2017, July 22/23

It's time to book for Johnny Batchelor's Winter Workshop! It's a great way to lift your practice, knowledge and focus to a new level. So dive in, the yoga's fine!

Date: July 22 & 23, 2017:
Saturday: 2:30pm – 5:30pm
Sunday: 8:00am – 11:00am & 1:00pm – 2:30pm
At the Moore Street Yoga Room



To observe ourselves from the perspective of the present moment gives us a unique opportunity to shed the weight of the world, to rid ourselves of unhelpful patterns of thoughts, emotions and actions. As BKS Iyengar has said, “The conjunction of effort, concentration and balance in asana forces us to live intensely in the moment, a rare experience in modern life."* To coordinate our physical actions, the flow of our breath, the path of our thoughts, to explore the flow and restraint of these qualites, brings relief from the vicissitudes of daily life and clears a path toward clarity of perception. To experience "the moment", and then to see where that can take us, will be the aim of this weekend workshop ...

Suitable for those with at least 12 months regular practice: students should be reasonably confident in shoulderstand (sarvangasana) and either be doing headstand (sirsasana) or be familier with headstand preparations or suitable alternatives (contact Johnny if you are unsure). The workshop will include Asana (physical postures), Pranayama (breath work) and restorative asanas.

As well as the three sessions above, participants are encouraged to attend the 7:30am, Saturday morning led-practice on July 22 ($10-: proceeds contribute to the upkeep of the Moore Street Yoga Room). Led by Johnny, this practice will complement and lay the foundations for the themes explored during the workshop.

$110- Earlybird Rate (by July 8, after $135-). Numbers are limited so please book with payment, early, to secure your spot. Payment can be made to Johnny in class or by direct bank deposit (email johnny for details) Johnny Batchelor  Phone: 0415 344 722
