She firmly believes the practice of Yoga is available to everyone, and holds the power to heal the body and mind. 

This workshop will be a total safe, warm, fuzzy, open space and will include :

x yoga philosophy
x pranayama
x yoga asana ( a yin styled class , open to all levels of practitioner )

Finding Forgiveness via Yoga

Finding Forgiveness via Yoga

  • Boheme and Body Wellness Shala Varsity Lakes Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Quite often when we have a challenging experience, or a disagreement with a loved one/ stranger.. we hold onto it in our bodies. It is what is referred to as "issues in our tissues"!
If we do not acknowledge this, and process it accordingly - we find the emotions like anger, frustration or pain resurface somewhere else in our life. It can manifest as a physical illness, or we start to become easily triggered, and find it hard to drop into the space of reflection before response - let alone forgiveness. 

A holistic approach to Yoga holds the power to purify the body and mind of the toxic emotions we store in our bodies, as well as shines a light on the triggers so that we can create more positive thought and behavioural patterns. This in turn helps us be the best versions of us, who are open, compassionate, loving and authentic :) 

Join Mollie as she guides you through an exploration of our Energetic Body and its connection it has to our mental/ emotional layers of our being. 
Expect to practice Yoga Asana and Pranayama, learn Yoga Philosophy relevant to the topic, and partake in a Guided Meditation. 
Learn tools to carry into your own practice to call on in turbulent times, as well as receive a little goodie bag to take home. 

The class will be over a slower pace, and is accessible to all levels of practitioner. 

Investment : $25 + booking fee

Pranayama 101

Pranayama 101

Have you ever noticed the connection between your breath and your mind? 

Take a second right now : Observe the depth, length and quality of your breath. If the breath is short + shallow - the mind is generally busy and we feel ungrounded; however if the breath is long, deep + smooth, we're generally pretty relaxed and the mind is at ease.

The Yoga Practice provides us with various breathing techniques which effectively alter the state of our mind and benefit our bodies both energetically and physically. 

Curious? Join me : Sunday 1st October @ 9:30am at the beautiful @bohemeandbody

We will explore several forms of Pranayama, their benefits + contraindications, so that you have all the tools you need to set up a self practice.

Excellent for mental health concerns including Anxiety and PTSD, as well as any overall body health concerns. 

Please try not to eat anything too heavy pre-workshop. :)

For more information, chat to me at mollie@jalayoga.co or shoot me a message via insta/ Facebook.

Love.
