This event is for community, those new to meditation and anyone seeking a space for healing.All funds raised at this event will go towards setting up an Outreach Community Program in Newtown to support remote communities with access to a yoga practice. You can learn more here. Kundalini Yoga offers a wonderful opportunity to apply an ancient and sacred technology to your life, which offers access points for healing that you may have not considered before. The meditation provides a specific posture, mudra and mantra. Each aspect applies an intention on the body, mind and spirit. By chanting or internally vibrating the mantra, you are able to achieve extraordinary effects in healing the body though the science of the Naad. The gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. It is a tool that super cedes the mind. When the gong is played, the mental thought process naturally relaxes. Join Kundalini teacher Rut Frohlich and our beautiful community for an afternoon of healing at The Yoga Collective Terrigal.
This month’s 2 hour Yin workshop will be led by Suzi Cutliffe on Sunday 30th from 1-3pm.
The will focus on the chakras starting with the muladhara, the base chakra, and working our way up the spine to open the different energy centres of the body – even awakening Kundalini energy. This beautiful practice will leave your body, mind and spirit feeling refreshed, revitalised and nurtured. We will begin our yin practice with a gentle meditation of loving kindness and finish with a deep juicy savasana. In Yin yoga, we slow down, calm our nervous system and create space for deep connection. We spend time in different poses to turn inwards, to connect to the true essence of our being, and find stillness.
As well as loving yoga, Suzi is a Mental Health Nurse, a mum of two beautiful kids, an avid gardener and a surfer. In her daily work, she sees the detrimental effects of lifestyle choices, life events and everyday stress on people mentally, emotionally and physically. Teaching yoga offers an empowering opportunity to expand on ways to help people strengthen, heal and grow. Suzi has practised yoga over the last 20 years and trained with Tara Fitzgibbon Byron Yoga Centre and Sarah Powers Insight Yoga and Mysan Sidbo from The Sanctuary. Teaching is such a privilege, one that Suzi is grateful for every day. She looks forward to sharing this powerfully healing practice with you this month at our monthly Yin workshop.

What is Mysore?
Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style Class is open to all levels, from absolute beginners to more experienced students. The class is not led. All instruction is given on an individual basis. As you learn the sequence, gain strength, stamina, flexibility and focus, new poses will be added on to your sequence. A Mysore Style Class is offered over a 2 hour period so you can practice at a time within those 2 hours that suits you and practice at your own pace under the guidance of the teacher. You develop your own practice by following your own breath (Ashtanga is intended to be a moving pranayama/meditation). You get individual attention. In any type of yoga, we come across poses or aspects of the practice that are difficult and challenging. In a led class, you may just skim over a difficult pose, but in Mysore style, you have the chance to work one-on-one with your teacher. Most people feel this individual attention helps their practice soar.
