MYOYIN & MERIDIANS 4 X SERIES
MyoYin & Meridians with Colette Corr. 60 Minutes
In traditional Chinese medicine, meridian paths through which life-energy known as "qi" flows. They are closely related to the Western notion of anatomy trains, lines of fascia that organise and hold the body together in tensegrity - a balance of tension and integrity. When you stimulate one point on the meridian or anatomy train, any of the rest of the chain can be affected. For example, rolling the foot on a soft spiky ball may alleviate headaches as both parts of the body are connected by the Urinary Bladder Meridian which correlates with the superficial back line of fascia.
What Will I Learn?
We will progress through the 12 major meridians in a calming, centring and connecting MyoYin practice.
What is the cost?
Tickets are $60 for a full course or pass or membership can be used.

SOMATICS 6 X WEEK COURSE
Somatics 6 x Week Course with Vicki Franks. 90 Minutes
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
 
Our life experiences lead to physical patterns in the body. The cumulative effects of habitual patterning in response to our physical environment and busy social and work schedules mean that many of us have experienced issues such as; A sore neck, tight shoulders, stooped posture, lower back pain, sciatica, or other aches and pains that we attribute to ageing and can’t seem to find long term relief for.
 
Soma: Definition – The living body experienced from within. A soma is self aware, self sensing, self regulating and self responsible.
The practice of Somatics is about engaging the soma in a sensory motor learning process to increase/expand our interoception (internal sense of self) and proprioception (sensing our self in space).
 
Somatics is suitable for all ages and body types. The movements are slow and gentle. The only requirement being that you can lie comfortably on the floor.
What Will I Learn?
Through the techniques used in Somatic Movements, we will learn how to retrain the brain to eliminate muscle tension and the body’s adapted patterns of operating.
 
Week 1: Red Light Patterning (Front shortening / Back lengthening)In this session we will practice movements that address involuntary tightening of the flexor muscles located in the front of the body. This is a withdrawal response and may be exhibited as slumped shoulders, sunken chest and stooped posture. A typical pattern for those seated or on devices for long periods of time.
 
Week 2: Green Light Patterning (Back shortening / Front lengthening)Those who display Green light patterning are usually triggered by adult responsibilities, coffee, alarm clocks, and deadlines! Physically this shows up as involuntary tightening of the extensor muscles located in the back chain. This contraction causes issues such as swayback, lower back issues, chronic pain, and fatigue.
 
Week 3: Trauma (Side shortening/lengthening)For those of us who have experienced some sort of injury, there is a tendency to hold ourselves in ways so as to avoid further pain. As one side of the body shortens, the other side automatically lengthens. Side shortening and lengthening bring awareness to the waist muscles and make it easier to move from the centre.
 
Week 4: Rotational PatterningThis is a mixture of weeks 1, 2, and 3. For the spine to rotate the waist muscles need to be involved, as do the abdominals, the para spinals and the muscles in the back. It is the combination of them working together that produces a rotational movement.
 
Week 5: WalkingNow that we have an understanding of how to release contractions and access greater range in the body, we begin to explore the mechanics of walking.
 
Week 6: BreathingVital to life, the gateway to improved emotional health, decreased levels of stress, improved focus, and states of greater relaxation.

Inner Peace for the Empath 5 x Week Course
Inner Peace for the Empath 5 x Week Course with Anne Marie Johansen. 120 Minutes

Do you have a high level of sensitivity and a great big dose of empathy, often to the point of taking on the energy and pain of others?

Empaths are intuitive and can usually sense what’s going on around them, it is important to develop this ability and learn to distinguish between their own and other people’s emotions. This will help empaths find positive relationships and avoid becoming involved with people who take advantage of them, quite often narcissists are drawn to the sensitivity of an empath.

What Will I Learn?
On this unique, 5 week journey we will come together for 2 hours each week to learn how to….
 
– “switch off the mind” with quick, easy breath, focus and mindfulness techniques.
– calm and centre yourself daily. Quickly reducing stress, tension and anxiety, and increasing energy.
– embrace and appreciate your sensitivity and protect your energy with visualisations and meditation.
– increase your intuition and recognise your dominant senses.
– develop a deeper awareness of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours 
– manifest personal change & an introduction on the body’s subtle energy system (the chakras).
– awaken & strengthen dormant parts of your personality through archetypal awareness and powerful guided imagery.
– you will receive a journal and pen that you need to bring along to each session to briefly note your experiences, reflections or insights as well as things to work on each week. Not only a learning environment, this course is interactive and is centred around personal development.
 – you will be given a personally diagnosed flower essence healing remedy. Flower essences are nature’s mental health elixirs. Unlike essential oils or herbal remedies, they are an energetic medicine and can change the way we react to our environment, therefore reducing or even removing stress, emotional blocks
