Master classes for teachers & experienced students
Exploring tools and practices for the New Earth changes
As Gaia continues to raise her frequency over the coming years’ we will need tools to remain grounded and centred throughout this vibrational shift.
In this workshop series we will be utilising practical and empowering tools to embrace:
Mental Stability – practical tools to stabilise the fluctuations of the ‘Monkey Mind’ while embracing the virtues of Self-Acceptance and Non-Judgement. Learn to see the subtle agendas and games we play with ourselves.
Physical Grounding –harness the Lifeforce and ground negative influences through the practice of the Ananda Tandava – Shivas’ Dance of Joy. Honouring where you are now, without force embrace the challenges. Learn to listen, to wait to, tune in. Avoid rushing.
Emotional Balancing – activate the vibrational frequency of Devotion through sound and the practices of Self Love and Kindness. Learn to control your approach and attitude. How do you perceive your intention and what is motivating you?
This workshop series is based on 25 years of integrated practices from the Taoist and Indian traditions of Hatha Yoga, Chi Kung and the modern discoveries of Consciousness Research.

SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS
Vinyasa Krama – An intelligent and progressive step by step approach to arranging the various levels of postures through both Linear and Spiral movements which stimulate the five winds (Vayus) and the five elements (Bhutas).
Marma System – Through the use of in-depth asana practice and hands-on adjustment we will explore the obstructions common to modern habitual posture patterns and how to address them.
Meridian System – As Chi/Prana travels through the meridian system they pass through the vital organs and can be stimulated with the use of certain standing and seated activities.
Nervous System – Restoration– replenishing the para-sympathetic nervous system through static and dynamic activity. Understanding when, why and how much is appropriate.
Devotional Non-Duality – Transcending the Ego – Learning to let go – the art of Surrender. All the great spiritual masters were adept at surrendering to the Divine. We will explore the techniques of concentration (Dharana) and contemplation (Dhyana) and the philosophy behind these for daily living.
TECHNIQUES AND METHODOLOGY
Opening the Lotus – Padmasana – The Lotus posture has multiple variations depending on what internal system one is looking to stimulate and for how long. We will explore this ‘swiss army knife’ of postures systematically.
The King and Queen – Sirasana and Sarvangasana – There is a long list of benefits for these two central activities, however there is also a similar list of contra-indications. We will explore their appropriate application, variations and counter-poses.
Kriyas – Madhya Nauli & The Bandhas – Exploring the techniques associated with activating and moving from the Vital Centre and their appropriate application.
The Pranayamas – Ujjayi Kumbhaka – Kapalabhati – Surya Bhedana – Exploring the fundamental stages of a structured and safe breathing practice with the 3 primary techniques used to set up the central channels of Ida & Pingala
The Great Seals – Mahamudra and Mahabhanda – The two primary mudras used to set up the correct internal approach to lifeforce cultivation and clear the energy fields associated with the three base chakras.
Hand Mudras – These gestures work on the nervous system through the energy centres of the hands and correspond to the vital organs.
