Yoga, by definition, means union and during this workshop, you will learn the tools and understanding to build a strong foundation for connection to your body, mind and soul through asanas (physical postures), meditation and setting a sankalpa (an intention). You will learn:
• Warm ups to open the body
• Correct alignment in foundational yoga postures
• How and when to use props
• Breathing techniques (pranayama) to create heat and clear the mind
• How to sit in stillness and be
• And the 8 limbs of yoga (how to take your yoga off the mat)
We will combine what you have learnt into a 30 minute class. This is when your practice will truly integrate, and then close with a short Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation).
Join us for this friendly, fun and relaxed workshop, which will leave you feeling confident about attending yoga classes.
Wear comfortable clothing. No equipment is required – everything is provided at our studio.

TOPIC: ABORIGINAL COUNTRY & CULTURE
At The Collective, we acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and waters of Australia, and pay respect to all Elders – past, present and emerging. We also acknowledge our gaps in knowledge and understanding when it comes to Aboriginal life and way of being, and invite Tim Selwyn, a local Aboriginal man and founder of Girri Girra to our studio to share his wisdom on the world’s oldest living culture. The lore, language and connection to the land has sustained Aboriginal culture for 65,000 years. Tim and his people are dedicated to its continuation, by living it and sharing it.
Come gather at the studio for an evening of storytelling, music, chai and discussion on country and culture. Tim will share stories with personal, cultural and modern day relevance as a way of unpacking, debunking and educating on matters common to us all.
All proceeds will be donated (TBC)

Tim honours the ancient lore of his people and the spirits of his ancestors through art and teaching. Few know the land upon which they grow like Tim and his people. Along with a network of experts in cultural dancing, singing, bush medicine and tucker, Girri Girra is committed to sharing this knowledge through firsthand experience, guiding people through this ancient country, its history and customs. An experience with Girri Girra provides an unique insight into the world’s oldest living culture.
