“When we are in pain, we become self-centered and myopic. When we heal, we become more empathetic, self-less, and sympathetic to the pain and welfare of others. It is our gift to others to heal ourselves” ~ Max Strom

Friday Evening 6.30pm – 8.30pm STRENGTH, GRACE & HEALING - All levels ~ movement based class The intent of yoga is not only to increase our strength and flexibility, but also to promote health and vitality. The next layer is to transform our behavior from coarse to gracious, and to transform even our very thoughts, from chaos to beauty. Experience Max Strom’s unique prana-flow class, with emphasis on emotional transformation. Class will include a short talk, vinyasa-flow, non-dogmatic philosophy, breathing, and meditation.
Saturday morning 22 Feb 10.30am – 12.30pm OPENING THE CHEST: a new state of energy ~ All levels ~ movement based class This movement workshop begins very gently and then builds momentum. At the apex we move directly into a special sequence of postures that opens the chest. This induces an emotional sense of release, brings the mind into stillness, and the body into a new state of energy. This class is both challenging and very healing
Saturday afternoon 22 Feb 2pm – 4pm A LIFE WORTH BREATHING - All levels ~ lecture and movement This special workshop is focused on transforming depression into inspiration. This workshop is known for its healing, penetrating affect, leaving students feeling renewed and open. The workshop we will begin with a talk by Max based on ideas from his book. This will be followed by the integration of breathing exercises and yoga and Qi Gong movement. The final segment of the workshop will focus on seated breathing exercises to revitalize and inspire your body, your emotions, and your life. This workshop will help you to sleep.
Sunday morning 23 Feb 10.30am – 12.30pm YOGA AND THE POWER OF INTENTION: ON AND BEYOND THE MAT ~ All levels ~ movement based class Just as hydrogen and oxygen, depending on how they are mixed together, can produce either fire or water, posture practice and intention and breath depending on how they mixed together can produce either “just exercise” or can revolutionize our lives. This flowing workshop begins very gently and then builds momentum. At the apex of heat and breath we move directly into a special sequence of postures, which bring the mind into stillness and the body into a new state of energy. This class is both challenging and very healing.
Sunday afternoon 23 Feb 2pm – 4pm REFINING COMMUNICATION A Seminar for Yoga teachers, business managers, or anyone who wishes to improve their communication as leaders. People often assume that their favorite teachers are able to speak clearly, concisely, and lovingly because they were born that way. But this is rarely true. Teachers and leaders who excel with communication often simply work harder at it and never stop studying and improving their art of teaching. This seminar offers several techniques for refining and empowering your ability to communicate what you want to say in the tone you want to say it with. The practical principles you will learn in this workshop will take you to new levels in your teaching and inspire you for weeks to come. Bring your mat and writing materials.
