Heart yoga facilitated by Leah

Heart Yoga is beautiful moving meditation with gentle flowing movements.  The eyes can be closed, as you are lead into a journey of self-discovery. Noticing all and very sensation with loving kindness which allows for the deepest relaxation and letting.

 In this way the body, mind and spirit can be free of tension, tightness, and dis ease allowing for gift to just BE in bliss. There is a strong emphasis on the breath, traditional yoga and Feldenkrais techniques that focus an applying minimum movement with maximum release.  In many ways it shares a yin and yoga therapy approach. The wide of open cave of the heart is nourished and opened removing blocks and allowing for the divine.

Chandra Namaskara (moon salutations) the lunar energy of the moon flows within the Ida nadi. It has a cool, relaxing and creative quality. Ida is the introverted feminine which is responsible for consciousness.  As we women honour the moon awe embrace all of that which resides within ourselves as beautiful Shakti.  For those new to yoga, do not fear you don't even need to touch your toes and there will be options.  In this style the focus is on how it feels like rather that how it looks. For those experienced yogi it will be an advanced practice of being as you follow the energy and master the micro movements and sensations of your being.

My hope for us all is that will be a sacred shared energy of love as we flow together from the heart.

Leah is currently employed with Dr Sujatha at the Ayurveda Clinic in Ubud teaching yoga, pranayama, meditation, women's sacred healing practices, and providing reiki.  Also, teaching children's yoga at Pelangi International School.  Along with co-ordinating, facilitating and teaching at retreats in Bali.

Shakti Dance facilitated by Mishaal

Your Body in Your Temple

Relax Your Mind

Awake Body and Soul

Honor the Sacred Within 

Shakti Dance draws from the mystical roots of bellydance, and temple dance. With awareness of breath, and an inner focus, we use a language of sacred geometry, tracing circles, spirals, serpentine waves, infinity loops, and shimmies throughout our body, awakening and cultivating Shakti flow,  infusing each movement with qualities of earth, air, fire, water, and spirit, as we move through the chakras. Shakti is the divine feminine creative force within us all. We celebrate and honor the sacred within. This practice is a soothing, sensual guided flow, no experience necessary. Dress comfortably, as if you were coming to yoga, or dance class.
