Birds are chirping and it’s Spring. The big elm at the front of the studio is fully “leafed up” (!!) looking glorious, and ready for summer action – are you???!!
We’ve just started our final Courses for 2017 and it’s the perfect time to join us. We’re using simple props to gain the correct alignment and action in each person’s body, for their breath to then flow strongly and fluidly, and therefore create lift, lightness and upliftment which then comes naturally.
AND… You’ll make lots of new friends – good people – happy, healthy and uplifted people. You’ll learn how to be happy and enjoy life. The tendency with adults is for their mind to become too serious and then the joy of life slips through their fingers.
It’s been great to see quite a few students who we haven’t seen for a few years returning and pumped to back in the action at the studio. All expressing how they’ve missed the studio and how good it is to be back.
The Chant last Term was fabulous – everyone exhilarated and buzzing! The next Chant will be on Saturday 3 March 2018 – Be there!
It’s been wonderful having the year 7 students from Albert Park College back at Yogareal Studio, as part of their School program. It’s so important and wonderful at their age to have a strong connection with themselves and therefore have a strong sense of self-esteem and wellbeing. It’s great so many of them are embracing the practice and sharing it with their families at home.
We look forward to seeing you all for the final countdown of 2017, before Santa comes with his bag of goodies.
Love Rob, Theresa and everyone at the Studio
From 4-7pm, Saturday 7th October.
At Yogareal Studio, with Live Musicians from Shanti Mandir.

Experience the bliss of chanting –
Open the heart, lengthen the breath, move with the music, expand your awareness. ✨
Changes to Regular Timetable:

More Shakti than the Grand Final, faster than a speeding Surya Namaskar! Able to leap tall buildings or obstacles in a single bounce! More powerful than 12 yogies pulling a locomotive!
Awaken the Shakti – Experience your Super Yoginess!!
We’re halfway through Term Five and it’s a fabulous time to be at the studio!
By extending the headstand workshop over 2 weeks, many students who had never been able to do headstand before, can now access this posture, and gain the tremendous benefits for health, wellbeing and consciousness that come through practicing it.
This week we’ve been using specific props to stimulate the spine, lengthen the lower back and gain strong access and use of your breath. For anyone suffering from lower back pain, digestive issues, or other issues associated with a lack of energy moving through the pelvic area – these classes are a must.
We’re OPEN as usual for Grand Final Friday – 29 September 2017.
And join us for THE CHANT!
Saturday 7 October 2017
Live Musicians from Shanti Mandir
Arrive when you can and stay as long as you like.
Experience the bliss of chanting – open the heart, lengthen the breath, move with the music, expand your awareness ✨
By Popular Demand!
Headstands continue this week …
28 Aug – 3 Sept
Working with the headstand machines to create the length and alignment and therefore to be able to draw a long strong breath to push and lift and then working with forearm balances at right angles against the wall to get the openings and shape.
And then for those who are ready, continuing with forearm balance against the doors and then free standing.
And for those who can do forearm balance easily … Scorpion!
HEADING TOWARDS HEADSTAND
Final week of Yogareal Beginners Course: 21st – 27th August
Taught “PROPERLY” so the shoulder girdle’s open and therefore supportive. The spine is running – therefore lifting – vertebrae opening, back muscles lengthening, stable and strong. Continuing through the pelvis into the inner leg and feet.
These progressive openings are essential with a strong symmetrical breath, so therefore a headstand practitioner has no undue weight on the head or neck, and enough fire (symetrical breath through the navel and length through side waist, with uddiyanna bandha). So that the posture is light and balanced, and the energy flows to the crown of the head, glands, and energy centres in the skull.
The headstand or shirshasana is considered the king of all postures or the most important of the 84,000 postures.
Be the king of your universe! The first thing is to see everything from a different perspective, this in itself is a revelation and transformative for the consciousness.
Mobility, flexibility, vitality, stability, versatility.
Leap through all your obstacles in life with grace
and great tranquility…
