Workshops are special two-hour learning sessions which are held usually on a Saturday afternoon. These interactive extended sessions allow students to learn more than ‘how’ but also ‘why’ we do certain things in yoga. Even better, they include a glass of granny’s homemade lemonade specially brewed for the session.

Please note there is a 7-day cancellation policy for workshops. Your spot is not confirmed until payment is made.

What it’s about: Yamuna® Body Rolling (YBR®) is a powerful self-help method that everyone can do regardless of age or physical limitations. It is a self-massage, myofascial release and gentle workout rolled into one. A series of specially created balls become the hands of the therapist and the person’s own body weight creates the traction, movement and release on the ball. Work on yourself anytime, anywhere, forever.

This workshop is for you if:

  • You spend hours sitting on a desk each day and feel stiff and achy all the time
  • You are beginning to experience pain or stiffness that is preventing you from continuing to do something you love, e.g. running, playing golf, knitting
  • You just don’t feel like you have the same agility and functional mobility that you did a year or two ago
  • You simply wish to enjoy greater ease and comfort in your body

What to expect:

  • A brief introduction to the fundamental principles of YBR® and the benefits
  • Be guided through a YBR® workout: lower body routines to release tension in the legs, and upper body routines to create space and length in the torso, release tension in the chest, neck and spine
  • Greater ease and comfort in your body
  • Tension release, and reduction in aches and pains
  • A relaxed body and mind
