Join in a feast of gentle movement, breathing practice and sound to promote inner and outer peace.
Across the four sessions you will be invited to experience the intelligent use of breath in movement and the use of Vedic peace chants (Śāntipatham) to enrich your practice and spread the vibe of peace. Students attending will receive a handout with a copy of the Sanskrit transliterated chant and an English translation. You will also receive the password for a vimeo recording of the chant, so that you can practise beyond the class.
The workshop will contribute to CPD points for yoga teachers

A six week study into the Wu Qin Xi
health related Qi Gong
Presented By Allen Crosson
This is a 6 week course in the 5 Animal form Qi (or Chi) Gong. This is a fun playful health form for all ages and all levels of fitness and well-being.
These practices have been used to heal many diseases over the years and can be adjusted to suit your body and cater to injury or ongoing health problems and can be adjusted to aid the healing recovery of whichever disease pattern is bothering you.
I will introduce you to the meditation practices of ancient Chinese Daoism that heal the body mind and spirit; then we will enter into the practice of the 5 animal forms that have been passed down for the 1700 years.
Over the six weeks you will learn the forms of the Tiger, the Deer, the Bear, the Monkey & the Crane and begin to understand and experience these movements in terms of the Chinese medicine Meridian theory and the five-element theory that underpin Chinese medicine and its longevity practices as well as receive an introduction to Daoist breathing and meditation.
kids mindfulness workshop
Author, speaker and Mindfulness Educator Janet Etty-Leal has pioneered Mindfulness for children in Australia. For 20 years Janet has cultivated the art and science of teaching children mindfulness.
Heart, mind and hands-on practices are designed by Janet to captivate children from all walks of life. Her detailed lesson plans equip teachers, therapists and parents with a positive palette of skills, concepts and ideas. Novel, thought- provoking themes combined with physiological and psychological inquiry to promote self-awareness, are embellished with playful activities and meditation practices infused with imagination. Self-agency is promoted with each child.
Published in 2010, ‘Meditation Capsules: A Mindfulness Program for Children’ is written for upper primary and lower secondary students. The book shares ‘road-tested’ ways to help young children develop self- awareness and mindfulness. Each ‘Meditation Capsule’ incorporates resource materials, is easy to follow and use, and includes suggestions for integrating mindfulness experiences and practices into the broader curriculum for children to experience happiness, enjoy learning and get more out of the school day. Studies based on this Program have been undertaken by Masters/PhD candidates in Universities in W.A., S.A., Victoria, New Zealand, Hong Kong, the US and Puerto Rico.
Janet’s second book, ‘A Head-Heart Start for Life: Creative Mindful Discoveries for Young Children’ was launched in April 2018. It offers a beautiful collection of carefully chosen activities for children from 3-6 years of age to build awareness, kindness and happiness. A structured guide which leads the reader through sequential levels of inquiry enhances self- awareness through first-hand experiences of mindful movement, social and emotional learning, character strengths and ways to sustain curious attention with creative meditation practices. The book is infused with opportunities to stimulate children’s imagination.
