Yoga & Breathing Techniques to Achieve Relaxation & Good Health

'Be aware of your breathing.  Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space’
Eckhart Tolle

When stressed the nervous system triggers the flight and fright reaction. This causes us to breathe short and shallow as if we are permanently hyperventilating.   

Prolonged periods of stress and incorrect breathing leads to anxiety, confusion and many other debilitating health conditions. 

You can Achieve Good Health by: 

  1. Understanding the importance of correct breathing, the basic theory of the body mind connection

  2. Practicing breathing, relaxation-meditation techniques, for example, to remove long-term stress patterns of thinking, behaviour and action

  3. Learning to detect and neutralise new stresses the moment they arise


Easter Retreat

Inner Centring – returning to our authentic true self

15 - 18 Apr     $475 Book Here
16 - 18 Apr     $350 Book Here

Take time to renew at Easter. Allow the mind to turn inwards and relax into the centre of your being through meditation and reflection. In our day to day life we are constantly externalised, connecting, thinking, doing, and acting. There is constant movement and often struggle with finding balance in the complexities of life.

Deep inside, on the other hand, there is a silent centre, where we feel a connection to a deeper presence.  This is where we feel truly our authentic self.  Step by step, we can let go of the surface layers, move closer to our core and relax deeply into our own self. 
Once we experience this connection with our centre, we emerge refreshed and rejuvenated.  Dealing with the surface layers, the everyday life, then becomes a lighter experience through our identification with the stillness within.  We learn to flow with greater self-acceptance and clarity in any situation, rather than struggle or sink in the complexities of life’s diversity.
