| No need to book, standard class prices apply.
1:30-3:30 Saturday 31st August @ Featherston
1:30-3:30 Sunday 1st September @ Lower Hutt
Come and explore the form and movement patterns of Sun Salutations.
We will breakdown the body's structure and function in key areas associated with the movements of a Salutation.
By learning how to progress and regress individual movements you will be able to refine and play more in your form.
Hosted as part of Hot Yoga's 40-Day Challenge. We are starting at the Root Chakra as this sets our stable foundation.
This workshop is open for anyone wanting to explore the wide variety of expressions in asana. It is not a typical class structure, we will be breaking away from our mats, observing others and sharing our experiences.
An open attitude is required.
Bridie integrates her knowledge of human form and function to provide group and private sessions to the Wellington Community. Her experience with clinical massage, anatomy and physiology as well as her personal yoga practice provide a comprehensive toolkit to help you have a positive experience in your body.

Spring Fresh - yoga, meditation, awakening
"spring is when life’s alive in everything.” ∼Christina Rossetti
Join Michelle in Lower Hutt for this 2.5 hour workshop that combines a seasonal yoga flow to harmonise body and mind, a guided meditation on renewal and time for you to reflect on your personal spring freshness.
Longer days, warmer temperatures, plants and sprouts are growing - spring is here!
We witness how nature starts to wake up and revives - just as much as we do.
There's a release, an awakening and an expansion as we move on from the cold contraction of winter. We greet this energetic new season with an invitation to shift from the darkness into renewing light and freshness.
In spring we are met with an opportunity for movement and change, it invites us to step forwards, outwards and to expand. Let's welcome this abundant space, warmth and vibrancy, opening movement and possibility!
If you're feeling like you could do with an uplifting dose of inspiration to revitalise and welcome in the warmer season, this afternoon is for you!
Equipment: bring a pen, your yoga mat, eye pillow and/or anything else that could help you relax in your meditation
