Yoga Workshops at Yogareal are concise times to work very specifically with themes and techniques to enable optimum results for each individual.
RAJA YOGA WORKSHOP – SAT 22 JUNE 2019
Less than two weeks to go for the Raja Yoga Workshop – a continuation of the Retreat we held in February, which was fabulous, a wonderful group of people and everyone was inspired, uplifted and energised.
The theme of this Workshop –
DON’T REACT TO LIFE – RESPOND TO LIFE
Listen to life talk to you with every cell of your being.
Breathe, feel, observe, listen.
Listen on all levels
The workshop will be complete in itself, allowing you to change/open out areas in yourself that you’d like to open out and change In an insightful lighthearted way. Areas that have been holding you back, which you can’t seem to get a handle on and move through yourself. Then this will allow you to respond to life in all circumstances, in a joyful uplifting way, instead of just reacting and being intense.
Approximate session times below:
7am to 10am – Morning Session (includes breakfast)
12:30pm to 3pm – Afternoon session

Saturday Spa at Yogareal is a chance to restore, rejuvenate, realign and rejoice! Join us for a one-hour restorative yoga session with other Yogareal students. You’ll all have your own personal bench for the duration of the session. Your pelvis and spine will be re-aligned (all problems with back, neck and shoulders are due to the pelvis collapsing and a lack of stability in the core/deep abdominals and hence the spine collapses, vertebrae jam and nerves pinch). Your breath will be light, soft, strong and long. You’ll straight away feel connected to yourself, peaceful, light-hearted and grounded. The session draws to an end with a chai and a social chat.

Celebrating 50 Years of Yoga
1966 – fifty years ago, when we were in our teens… before yoga studios were everywhere, fashionable and … trendy. We found a very natural way to balance our energies, release tensions and have an exhilarating / liberating time. We’d spend all our spare time down the Yarra River in North Kew, swinging on the ropes, jumping from one rope to another rope in mid-air like Tarzan, stacking kids on the second rope and eventually coming back to shore, or jumping into the river… And hence the title of the article in the middle pages of The Sun Newspaper, Wed 28 Dec 1966, was ‘Tarzans of the River.’
This whole environment / lifestyle led to balance, upliftment, being in our body, grounded, in touch with life, strong, vital, practical and skilful. This whole lifestyle needed nothing else. It was complete – healthy, happy, simple.
However, during youth and as a person leaves youth and goes into adulthood, what is essential and required is that the consciousness and the intelligence of each person and how they work in themselves and how their energies work with life, needs to be known. Most people never acquire this knowledge, and hence they lose their child-likeness, light-heartedness and strong flow of vital energies… they tend to become an “old person” or an “adult”.
Most people, in order to maintain their child-likeness or exuberance seek other external means to try and reclaim it – alcohol, food, drugs, extreme behaviours, neediness – however all of this just makes everything worse – complicated, more intense, heavy. This then carries through in all their relationships – family, work, loved ones. Their energy doesn’t flow, and their heart’s have closed and therefore they’re not open-hearted people.
The whole consciousness transition is the second part of classical yoga, and really the most important step in yoga. This step of people understanding themselves is not there in most frameworks or systems around today. It’s either the energy side of things – postures/exercise/sport, or the consciousness side – meditation/psychology/philosophy.
There’s a lot of theory, there’s a lot of writing, there’s a lot of teachings, but where are the practical realistic ways of integrating this understanding into day to day life, without being a space cowboy???? Or in other words being disconnected, unable to cope or integrate life, despite knowing all the theories and having the best of intentions.
The releasing of the breath, working with the breath, guiding and directing the breath, is the essence of the vitality (postures) transitioning into the consciousness for a person, while still retaining light-heartedness, and this has to be taught and then understood in oneself.
The latter part of my life has been spent acquiring this understanding and being able to convey this to other people in a natural, down to earth, grounded way. This then makes yoga a complete system for each person. Their ability to flow with life is then innate.
– THEY’VE MOVED THE RIVER AND PUT THE EASTERN FREEWAY THERE!!
…So we’ve got it all happening at Yogareal at the Consciousness Workshop on 3 December 2016 – FIFTY YEARS ON!!
– We’re no longer on the rope, we’re using benches for the alignment – hanging and using gravity to gain length in the body.
– We’re using practical light-hearted techniques to release the patterns of restriction.
– Summarising and encapsulating the essence of 50 years of transformation.
– Beautiful meals
– Great company
– A summary to this year and the last 50 years!
– See you there!
