As the brilliant dancer and choreographer Martha Graham said, “Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul’s weather to all who can read it.” In Melbourne spring, the weather can be all over the place and I feel my own internal barometric pressure rising and falling like crazy! One minute I’m wildly enthusiastic. The next I’m flat. One day I move fluidly and joyfully through my yoga practice, and the next everything feels like effort and struggle. If the way we move does reflect our inner state, then maybe the way we move can also transform it? Perhaps as the wild energy of spring courses through our veins, sending us flying off in all directions, we can seek balance in practices that ground us. Join me for Yin and Yang workshops, trainings, and retreats that will help you channel the surging energy of spring with more clarity and purpose. Here’s what’s on:
11-13 September: The Yin Clinics at Liberty Yoga in Mornington
A room is defined by the stable walls that give it shape and structure and the space within that is changing and full of possibility. Our bodies are the same – the play between space and boundary, fluid and fiber. Exploring that relationship is the foundation of Yin/Yang Yoga practice where we strengthen the parts of our body that lack integrity and mobilise the parts of our body that are stuck. Join us at Liberty Yoga in Mornington 11-13 September to enjoy this balanced and nourishing practice! This weekend of Yin/Yang practices is perfect for teachers looking to refresh their Yin sequencing or students interested in learning more about the anatomy and philosophy of Yin Yoga. Purchase sessions individually or get a discount on the whole weekend! Click here for information and bookings.
20-22 November: Yin Yoga and the Chakras, A retreat at Le Yoga Daylesford

Your daily yoga practice will include dynamic Yang movements and quieting Yin stretches.
