Regular Yoga Workshops
Saturday Oct 28th 1.15pm: Arm Balances and Inversions
We’ll have heaps of fun exploring all sorts of arm balances and inversions. Whilst those poses challenge our perception of ourselves and often show up our limitations, they also bring great focus and commitment to your practice.
Contact Nina if you’re interested in attending, or if you have specific workshop topics you’d like see addressed.
You can find and join the Facebook group here.
New Classes: DANCE FOR NON-DANCERS on Monday nights 7.30-9pm
In these classes we explore our ability to sense the inner body, stripping back the layers of tension to find a more balanced and centred place. From this place the body feels free to move with more grace and co-ordination. These classes are aimed at beginners, but may also be of interest to ex-dancers and students.

Where: Private sessions for people at the DOL studio and from his home in West Heidelberg.

Most of our current health problems are caused by stress and wrong lifestyle or attitudinal habits. Yoga Therapy endeavours to get to the root of these issues by relaxation, breath work, simple structured exercises, herbs, diet, meditation, sound and lifestyle changes that you can implement for yourself with help from Bryan.
Yoga Therapy can help with physical problems associated with the back, shoulders, neck, hips and knees. It is also useful in depression and anxiety.
