Understanding your own anatomy can help to deepen your confidence on both the mat, and in your teaching. The universe of human anatomy can be engaged with in a multitude of ways. This series of workshops will help you understand the many layers of the body through working with a variety of mediums. You will use clay to mold bones and tissue paper to build muscles on a skeleton. You will also gain competence in palpating basic muscles and structures, and learn to embody your anatomy through experiential exercises.
This multi week course is designed to give take away tools and techniques for the student to work on in their own practice.
In class we will work with partners and alone to improve spacial awareness and endurance upside-down.
We will cover exercises to start, if you have no handstand, or if you are to trying to improve an existing one.
Children are innately curious about everything, aren’t they? And yoga is no different. Kids classes are curated to capture the curiosity of a child. We learn through play, songs, stories, and games.

A fun yoga class for parents with active little tots (around 12-24 months). Parents can expect this class to have many elements of a traditional yoga class: you will flow, stretch, build strength, self-massage and learn movements to soothe common aches and pains that can also be practiced at home. Various modifications and progressions will be offered to support all pre/postnatal bodies and all levels of practice. Tots will have a blanket setup at the top of their parents mat where they can play independently, or they can move around and play with community toys in the centre of the room, socialize with friends and some may even follow along with the class! Perhaps the best part, meet, chat and laugh with a community of parents with similar aged children in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Join handstand lovers Nicky Poole and Jay Andrews for an intelligent approach to building strength and confidence in preparation for handstand.

The workshop will include strength and mobility exercises, wall and partner work, and all-levels explorations on the hands in the centre of the room!
