 Sunday September 27th

Space and Freedom in the Hips: Jarvis Chen. 1-4pm.

The hips are the interface between the lower body (the legs) and the trunk (at the pelvis), but also the unconscious and the conscious. Tension and restriction in the hips can often feel involuntary and intractable, as though we are holding on to barely remembered worries or anxieties and are unable to let go. In this workshop, we will work with a basic sequence of hip opening actions to create space and freedom in the lower body and we will observe how this changes our experience of standing poses, forward bends, and twists.

$50 cash or check.  $55 on line and credit card.

2-4pm.  $35 cash or check.  $40 on line or credit card.

 Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Peter Scott

Alignment and Energy in Yogasana
Saturday October 24- Sunday October 25th.

Peter Scott is one of Australia’s preeminent Iyengar Yoga practitioners and teachers. He holds a Senior Intermediate 3 Iyengar teaching certificate, which he received directly from Yogacharya BKS Iyengar. Peter began teaching in 1982 and in 1987 founded the Rathdowne Yoga Room in North Carlton, where many of Melbourne’s current Iyengar Yoga teachers have trained. Peter’s teaching is distinguished by his extensive knowledge of the body and yogic wisdom, the clarity he creates when teaching, and his quiet ability to inspire and guide the practitioner along the path of yoga. Peter’s classes, workshops, and teacher training bring together all aspects of yoga to provide an accessible path to self knowledge. He is also a Naturopath and herbalist (though not currently practicing). Peter contributes articles on yoga asana to Australian Yoga Life magazine.
