Free SUP Yoga & Meditation on the Creek with the sound of the water lapping your board.
Followed by Creek Clean + sort + count + strategise solutions
(BYO snorkle and flippers and SUP board or reserve one with us).
Don't forget to pack your picnic blanket as we join together as a community with food and festivities after.

Join Jala Yoga together with Pure Aloha Yoga for a Special Community Creek Clean by Tallebudgera Creek.
SAVE THE DATE : the third event of the Jala Yoga Reef movement.
The first nationwide event in January raised $2055 for the Environmental Defenders Office and Mackay Conservation Group to battle for our Great Barrier Reef in court. The second event in April raised over $500 for the Wangan & Jagalingou Family Council to support their legal battle for Native Title and to protect their land.
We have posted over 300 letters to the QLD Government, and the Prime Minister, urging them to steer away from Fossil Fuels and investing (our money) in corrupt, destructive companies like Adani.
See first event here : https://vimeo.com/198638629
See second event here : https://vimeo.com/216590949
This time we are aiming for bigger, and better.
Our focus : supporting the local Wangan and Jagalingou people in their plight to save + protect their sacred country.
Yoga, Guided Meditation, Didgeridoo + Crystal Bowl Sound Healing, Speakers, Letter Writing, Live Music, Activities for the kids, and an AMAZING raffle.
August 13th 2017.
1) support and stand in solidarity with the traditional custodians - the Wangan and Jagalingou people - of the land which this project will cut directly through.
2) raise much needed $$ for upcoming court hearings, so that the Wangan and Jagalingou Family Council can afford to continue to fight for their country.
3) write letters to the Gov letting them know that we are in full support of the Wangan and Jagalingou people, and strongly oppose the proposed Carmicheal Mega Mine. Politicians are legally obligated to read handwritten letters - we all have voices, lets use them via pen and paper.
Yoga & Sound Healing is a suggested $10 donation, however all is welcome ♥

Suryanamaskara , or the Sun Salutation , is one of the oldest, most beneficial and complex series of any yoga practice -- yet often, it is overlooked or rushed.
Join Mollie Cox of Jala Yoga, and Joe Preyer as they break down the Hatha and Ashtanga variations of the Suryanamaskara, as well as explore the link between the breath, anatomical alignment and energetics within each pose.
In this masterclass, you will learn the philosophy & history of the Suryanamaskara method. You will meet muscles groups you didn't know you had. You will discover a whole new and energy efficient way of flowing through the Suryanamaskara.
All questions you have will be answered, and variations to suit you will be given to practice.
To conclude the practice, you will be serenaded by Joe on the acoustic guitar while Mollie massages your shoulders, neck and scalp with essential oils.
You will leave this workshop with a whole new perspective and awareness on how your body relates to the practice of the Sun Salutation, as well as knowledge of both the Hatha and Ashtanga method to apply to your own personal practice.
You will also receive a take home sheet of the sequence to practice as often as you wish.
Investment : $35 + booking fee
Bookings are essential to secure your place. Numbers are capped to ensure adjustments and attention to detail is possible.
For more information, contact Mollie : email@example.com

Mollie will guide you through 1 hour of a deeply meditative and restorative Yin Yoga, with a strong emphasis on each of the main seven chakras of the body. The use of Yoga asana, pranayama, visualisations, mudras, essential oils and seed sounds of the chakra will be implemented to balance the energetic body and bring a sense of equilibrium to the body-mind complex.
Matty will play the Crystal Sound Bowls specific to each chakra as the class progresses, working alongside the Yogic practices to balance, with an integrating and extended Sound healing for Savasana.
