Yogi Oils - Air | with Katrino Yoga

Working with Yoga and the medicine of Essential Oils.

Essential oils have a direct effect on the emotional, physical and subtle body. If our energies or emotions are out of balance the body can become sick, struggle to live life to its full potential in the present moment. Our mission in this life is to face the obstacles and challenges life throws at us the best we can in order to grow, learn, evolve and inspire others to do the same. There are lots of paths, ways and techniques that have been used throughout history to the world we live in now, and in this series, Katrino Yoga and Yogi Oils have come together to bring you a series of 5 workshops in which we will go into greater detail on how to use essential oils to assist your yoga practise, on and off the mat, to give you some tools which you will hopefully be able to use if you are ever off balance. Inspired by the 5 elements and The Chakras we will use Yogi Oil Essential oil blends – EARTH, WATER, FIRE, AIR AND AETHER to help you find your own harmony as you come into contact with your own beautiful challenges.
Each workshop will include an oil to take home with you, a chance to blend your very own oil and an information sheet related to each element and blend.

Yoga Stability - Cleaning it Up: Move with leverage vs. effort | with Meredith Cameron

Yoga Stability is a practice that gives you insight and intelligence as to why certain yoga poses might feel amazing or certain yoga poses might hurt.

Learn information about particular injuries and and aches and soothing them with stability tactics. Explore a handful of stability tactics that will change your game. We will kick old habits and rewire, as we give our organs the space and efficiency they need. It's all about feeling good.

We will:

  • Explore familiar yoga poses.
  • Break them down and relearn them with particular stability tactics.
  • Gather around and learn that we all have our own set of conditions to work with heaps of adjustments so that we can feel what it's like to be on our own symmetrical grid.

You begin to see and hear differently when you practice from a stable approach. Information is gathered, applied and your life begins to shift.

In this specific workshop we will be finding angles and talking about the differences of moving and setting up poses with bones versus muscles.

It's not about being too tight or too loose. Too flexible or too stiff. A shape is a shape and it all gets reconciled when form is formidable. You use something the proper way, and it will clean up. When a hand gets plugged in, a lung has the chance to open. This workshop is all about setting up familiar yoga poses in a more stable way.

Getting Out of Our Own Way: The freedom of confinement takes you to the next place.

There's so much to do once you are in a pose. We will learn to get off of ourselves and get over ourselves. So often we sit in our joints and energy and information becomes stagnant. We then begin to use compensatory skills. In this workshop, we will instead, learn how to provide ourselves with proper insight and potential, enhance efficiency of our bodies, and bring our second nature forward (insight, intelligence, skill and technique).
A good yoga pose. A good relationship. It all has the same demand.

Cacao Ceremony | with Fiona Sears

Cacao Ceremony | with Fiona Sears

Welcome to this gathering of like-minded women to connect and share in the magic and medicine of sacred cacao. 

You can expect a ceremonial drink of raw cacao blended with spices such as cinnamon, chili and vanilla and sweetened with a little raw honey or coconut sugar if required. 

We will be exploring breath work, movement meditation and deep resting in an open and grounded container. 

Please come with full permission from yourself to explore your own depths, let go into your body's wisdom and sink a little deeper into the helm of your being. 

Cacao encourages an opening and relaxation on many levels. Physically, it works with the circulatory system to dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow throughout the body and contains high amounts of magnesium which helps tense muscles loosen. It also holds potent biochemical compounds that encourage the nervous system to scale back from a constant fight or flight response to a state of relaxation and regeneration. Here is where important 'resets' can occur-for example, where patterns of tension can be released and replaced with a softening and acceptance of what is. 

Fiona Sears has been holding Cacao ceremonies for 2 years now and has shared with dozens of women who have found cacao to be a wonderful guide and ally in their lives, as well as very good medicine for anyone who seeks a greater level of connection with themselves and the others. 

Cacao is a gentle and very safe way to work with a medicinal plant, however it is not advisable to attend if you have a severe heart condition or are taking certain types of antidepressant medication. Please ask your doctor if you are unsure.

Yoga for Musicians - The Art of Listening | with Outi Smith

Yoga for Musicians - The Art of Listening | with Outi Smith

This two hour workshop is aimed at musicians of all levels and styles, whether you’re an instrumentalist or a singer. Prior experience of yoga is not required, only an open mind.

The first half of the workshop is a practice on the physical element of yoga, focusing on the problem areas of a musicians body. We will go through the particular asanas (postures) that help to ease tension and bring balance to the body, promoting better body awareness and ease of movement when playing our instruments. The flowing sequence will also allow us to connect movement with the breath, helping us to gain focus and prepare the body and mind for the second half of the workshop. Listening is an important part of being a musician, from listening to music and our fellow musicians to hearing music in our heads and paying attention to our inner self.

In the second half of the workshop we will look into the different levels of hearing and ways of listening through simple meditation exercises. We will learn to actively listen without interrupting ourselves, focusing the mind and quieting the mind chatter. Continued meditation practice will lead to better concentration and clarity, allowing us to live in the present. By becoming better listeners we will also learn to communicate more clearly. By tuning into our inner voice we can open the doors to our creativity.

Saturday July 22 from 2:00- 4:00
