21 Day Challenge Starts Dec 1st

Friday 1st December – Thursday 21st December

As we enter into the silly season it can become increasingly challenging to stay grounded and connected to what really matters and easily give in to overindulging and overwhelm.

This can leave us finishing the year feeling sluggish and exhausted!

This deeply restorative workshop focuses on finding and holding the pressure points throughout the physical body to relieve stress and strain from the muscles, joints and nervous system. MFR addresses skeletal muscle immobility and pain patterns by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles through the use of tennis balls and long held, yin type poses.
Participants will not only come away feel deeply nourished and relaxed, but they will learn massage techniques to add to their toolbox of self care.
Date: Saturday 21st October, 2017
Time: 3-5pm
Location: Mornington
Cost: $45 per person including tennis balls and take away information – 10% discount for GRY members

Soul Flow Sunday

Posted by: on Aug 30, 2017 | No Comments

Looking to deepen your practice? Combining flowing yoga movement and the sound of sacred mantras Soul Flow will take you beyond mere physical exercise into a whole new level of connectedness, love and bliss. Come for a beautiful deep evening of movement, meditation, kirtan chanting and relaxation.

A bit about kirtan (chanting) Chanting sacred mantras which are infused with divinity will very quickly connect you to the sweetest part of you. Whether you choose to participate by singing along or tune into the feeling created by those chanting, you will begin to feel a sense of peace, a sense of joy, a feeling of deep love and a connection to the divinity within you, a divinity that connects us all to the source – pure consciousness. Chanting the sacred mantras opens our hearts and minds and synchronises our very being to a much higher plane-on this plane, the phenomenon we call Shakti.

Chanting is a non denominational practice and is open to everybody regardless of religion or personal beliefs. It’s an amazing way to find our inner Self within a clear space of good feeling.

Date: Sunday 17th September
Time: 6.30pm – 8pm
Cost: $40 – 10% discount for GRY members

Join Jessie for a deep, slow and meditative exploration of how we are held in space. This practice is a combination of Tantric philosophy and playful flow, taking Yogis deep into the felt experience of the energetic body.

This session will encourage moving from within, grounded from internal alignment. Moving away from external alignment in this way will continue awakening and expanding the subtle body as it informs your regular practice.

Subtle Body Immersion – Heart & Throat

Subtle Body Immersion – Heart & Throat

In the physical body we have two kinds of energy; one is known as prana and the other is consciousness. Tantric philosophy refers to Shiva (consciousness) and Shakti (creative energy). In yoga, the concept of prana is scientific – it does not mean the breath, air or oxygen – it means the original life force, and it exists to varying degrees in layers or sheaths around every thing in the universe – including every part of the physical body.
