Sivananda Yoga Course - 3 Consecutive Wednesdays with Pippi Jane

Traditional Sivananda Yoga comes to Hawkes Bay! Suitable for beginners, this is a three-class course where we will build our practice each time, taught by the lovely Pippi Jane.

Welcome to Sivananda, a classical concept of traditional hatha
allowing us to be Human-Beings as opposed to Human-Doings.

WHEN: Wednesday 18th September, Wednesday 25th September and Wednesday 2nd October, 5.30pm-7.00pm

WHERE: Wellness Sanctuary, 32a Main St, Hospital Hill, Napier.

BOOKINGS: Booking your spot is required. Please email Sarah: hello@wellnesssanctuary.co.nz to book. Contribution is $55 for the whole course, made payable in advance to: Wellness Sanctuary 12-3144-0257538-00 with Siva course and your name as references.

CLASS STRUCTURE:
1. SAVASANA, SOUND, MANTRA and PRANAYAMA.
Starting with simple and total surrender in savasana, arriving on your mat, into your body and setting up your sacred space for your practice and self-realization.
During this time soft chanting will be facilitated by Pippi in order for
students to deepen and connect to the powerful healing vibrations of
the sounds within the mantra.
We will then move into our pranayama; cleansing the body and
allowing our life-force energy to cultivate for a blissful and beneficial
practice.

2. WARM UP
With our vibes high we now begin our warm up starting with Surya
Namaskar (Sun Salutations) and leg raises followed by relaxation.

3. ASANA (posture)
Sivananda works with a set of twelve asanas throughout classes and the art of mastering these postures first before variations and adaptions are then introduced.
We will be focusing on 10 of these postures during our first class, 11
during our second class and the full 12 for our third class. Some
asanas will have preparatory exercises to build students towards the
final posture and some are coupled with counter-poses and the
opportunity to explore coming in and out of the asanas. After many of the postures there is ample time spent in relaxation to fully absorb the many benefits to the physical, mental and astral bodies.

4. FINAL RELAXATION/SAVASANA
After the exploration of asanas the class will wind down with a full
savasana and additional mantra sound healing to leave you in a state of ease and nourished alignment.

Any and all questions are welcomed and this class is accessible to all abilities of yoga practitioners as assistance and modifications will be given. No experience or knowledge of Sivananda is required, just
curiosity and the willingness to seek and fully surrender.
It is suggested that in order to make the most of the introduction and
integration of the asanas throughout the course that your own practice is continued between classes.

About Pippi:
Pippi Jane is a Yoga Instructor, Actor, Writer, Singer and
Dancer who lives and breathes her craft.
Originally from the beautiful and remote Lake Okareka in the
Lake District of Rotorua she has a profound love of nature and
outdoor pursuits.
Pippi completed a Bachelor of Performing and Screen Arts –
Acting Major at Unitec New Zealand in 2009 and has been
working in the industry since.
During her training at drama school, yoga was a compulsory
part of the curriculum and where the innate passion spawned;
having healed a chronic injury through her practice and
developing a deep appreciation for the mental and spiritual gifts
of yoga on and off the mat.
For Pippi, yoga is more than just the asana.
It is the integration of non-reaction, the full yogic breath, being
mindful in the moment, cultivating compassion and the ability to
live in a state of ease and non-attachment even in times of
turmoil. The art of being a student and dwelling in a state of
authentic curiosity for a lifetime.
Through her yogic journey, Pippi’s spirit transformed from a
tumultuous place of comparison and shame to a safe-haven of
acceptance, gratitude and quiet strength and observation.
In 2013 Pippi travelled to India to live in Sivananda Kutir
Ashram in the foothills of the Himilayas and completed her
Yoga Teacher Training in the Sivananda lineage.
She teaches various styles of yoga from Vinyasa Flow to Yin
but ultimately adores the emphasis of relaxation, meditation,
mantra, proper breathing, and simple surrender that
Classical/Hatha yoga encompasses, allowing us to fully soak in
the benefits and reap the rewards of our practice in all aspects
of every-day life.

About your facilitators:

Sarah Beale:
Sarah is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga teacher, teaching Ashtanga, Yin and Vinyasa styles of yoga. She has also begun teaching Pregnancy yoga after training with Dr Pooja Maddela in Auckland.

Sarah first discovered yoga with the Bikram hot method of yoga when she was 18, starting the practice mainly for the physical benefits it offered. Much later along the path she discovered Ashtanga yoga which was just as dynamic but was more of an internally heating practice & moving meditation. She began to fall in love with this yoga for the spiritual journey & its therapeutic benefits. She has practiced Ashtanga for the last 6 years, started teaching in 2014 and trained with Gregor Maehle & Monica Gauci from 8 Limbs Yoga.

Sarah also practices other forms of yoga such as Yin and Vinyasa, finding treasures in each method, and intuitively teaches based on the experience she has felt within herself. Sarah is dedicated to self-inquiry and personal/spiritual growth, always learning something new which she loves to share. She teaches with compassion, warmth and humour, adapting each class, no matter what the style, to the students who are present in the room.

Sarah is passionate about Ayurveda, Herbal remedies, Aromatherapy and anything which assists the body to heal itself

Sarah and her partner Alex moved from Auckland to Napier in January 2017 to pursue a more relaxed way to live. The opportunity to practice with her teacher, Peter Sanson was one of the big draw-cards for Sarah to move to Napier. Sarah continues to teach various styles of yoga at different locations in Napier on occasion. They now have a newborn baby boy and raise him here at the Wellness Sanctuary which is also their home.

She loves pouring her creative energy into, and holding space for the community at the Wellness Sanctuary. As well as teaching many of the yoga classes at the Wellness Sanctuary, Sarah organizes workshops & events, facilitating Ecstatic Dance and offering Reiki treatments.

Struggling with headaches caused by neck tension throughout his life led him to the field of massage therapy. He studied and gained a Diploma in Therapeutic massage at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies in 2002. During this course he studied a range of therapies including Swedish massage, fascial release, neuromuscular techniques, acupressure and lymphatic drainage. Alex has an empathetic approach to massage whether the client wants a remedial treatment or relaxation session. He has also begun incorporating Polarity Energy healing work into his massage sessions.

He was manager of Harvest Wholefoods in Auckland from 2003-2016 where he gained a wide knowledge of organics and nutrition.

Sivananda Serenade with Pippi & Gordon

Sivananda Serenade with Pippi & Gordon

A 1.5 hr Sivananda Yoga Workshop with Pippi Jane, accompanied by acoustic live music from her partner, guitarist Gordon John.

Suitable for all levels.

Booking required:
Email Sarah: hello@wellnesssanctuary.co.nz to register your name.
Cost: $25 per person
Pre paid to Wellness Sanctuary: 12-3144-0257538-00 to confirm your place.

Sivananda Yoga is a classical and ancient approach to the spiritual
yoga system. Untainted and kept in it’s true form, the traditional
approach to Sivananda is not manipulated or watered-down for the
modern world of Yoga.
Sivananda emphasises the five points of yoga with proper exercise
(asana), Proper Breathing (pranayama), Proper Relaxation(Savasana),Proper Diet and Positive Thinking (Vedanta) and Meditation (Dhyana) as well as incorporating mantra, sanskrit and scripture.
Identifying a group of twelve core postures that systematically balance the whole of the body and permeate the whole of the nervous system allowing prana to cultivate freely, emphasis is on mastering these fundamental asanas first, from which variations are then added to further deepen the practice.
Sivananda synthesizes the principals of the four paths of yoga (Karma, Bhakti, Raja and Jnana Yoga) and utilizes each as a well-rounded approach to a sustainable practice of yoga for everyday life off the mat.
Founded by Swami Sivananda; a medical doctor, yogi and man of
unrelenting selfless-service and adapted and taken to the West by
devoted student and yogi Swami Vishnudevananda to reach all people; the life-long mission being to ‘practice and teach the ancient knowledge of yoga for health peace, unity in diversity and self realization’.

The mantra of Sivananda Yoga Vedanta is ‘Serve. Love. Give. Purify. Meditate. Realize.’

Class structure:

1. Savasana, Sound, Mantra and Pranayama.
In this class we will start with simple and total surrender in savasana, arriving on your mat, into your body and setting up your sacred space for your practice and self-realization.
During this time soft chanting will be facilitated by Pippi in order for
students to deepen and connect to the powerful healing vibrations of
the sounds within the mantra. We will then move into our pranayama; cleansing the body and allowing our life-force energy to cultivate for a blissful and beneficial practice.
2. WARM UP
With our vibes high we now begin our warm up starting with Surya
Namaskar (Sun Salutations) and leg raises followed by relaxation.
3. INTRODUCTION TO ASANAS
Sivananda works with a set of twelve asanas throughout classes and the art of mastering these postures first before variations and adaptions are then introduced.
We will be focusing on 8 main postures during this class to
assist students to become akin to the asanas and allow for time hone in on the qualities of each. After many of the postures there is ample time spent in relaxation to fully absorb the many benefits to the physical, mental and astral bodies.

The class will wind down with a full savasana and additional mantra sound healing to leave students in a state of ease and nourished alignment.

Any and all questions are welcomed and this class is open and
accessible to all abilities. No prerequisites of yoga or Sivananda are
required, just curiosity and the willingness to seek and fully surrender.

Lemuria Rising- Napier- Voice & Toning Workshop

LEMURIA RISING - VOICE AND TONING WORKSHOP

An enjoyable and relaxing afternoon of Sound Healing, Light Language, Toning and Voice Exploration, hosted by Nicola Gibbons.

Each human body has its own unique sound or vibration. The intention is to leave with a greater sense of confidence in your own voice and tone, and speaking out.

And with guided exercises, also feel a greater sense of harmony in your body; through letting out your own sound. Toning is easy and begins to free the voice again. It is also very Healing, for yourself and others.

The first half of the group is lying down on Yoga Mats, as this group begins with Light Language activations by Nicola, specifically for this group. To balance and attune the Heart, Solar Plexus and the Throat Chakra. Then its up, doing the toning and voice exercise's together.

Nicola speaks Light Language with Songs and Sound Healing. The language is Lemurian, to calm and soothe the nervous system. The Light Language words activate your DNA and coding to activate your own divine power and inner wisdom.

Nicola (NZ) hosts 'Lemuria Rising' groups around the world. She has been based mainly in Glastonbury (UK) the last few years, and this year is hosting groups throughout New Zealand. Lemuria was an ancient civilisation before the time of Atlantis, situated where Hawaii is today, it was a time of great peace, and we are remembering how to live together again in this way.

Nicola's natural abilities of bringing through sacred tones has helped to shift stuck energies & helped ground in higher vibrational frequencies through her gifted channelling.

The Rite of the Womb: 13th Munay Ki Rite with Jayanti Woods

The Rite of the Womb: 13th Munay Ki Rite with Jayanti Woods

The 13th Rite, the Rite of the Womb, is from a lineage of women through the jungle medicine and sacred teachings of the Munay-Ki. This lineage of women freed themselves from suffering.

The feminine spirit of the jungle reminds us of this simple and vital truth:
The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; The womb is to create and give birth to life.

The collective feminine has been suppressed, denied and abused for centuries. Many still carry the wounding, the pain and resentment of their mother’s, their mother’s mother and all female ancestors.

The time is now for every woman to awaken and remember their powerful, loving and wise selves.

The number 13 is quite significant in relation to the feminine. There being 13 full moons in a year and the lunar cycle is inextricably linked to the cycle in the womb. 13 is also the number of the Goddess.

This lineage of women through the jungle medicine has given us the 13th rite of the Munay-Ki: The Rite of the Womb.

After you have received the Womb Rite you will then be able to share it with others.
Men can also receive the rite to help bring healing to the 'cosmic womb'. The 13th Rite can only be transmitted by women.

WHEN: Weds 11th September 2019
TIME: 6.30pm - 9.30pm
WHERE: Wellness Sanctuary, 32a Main Street, Hospital Hill, Napier

Light refreshments will also be served.

In this session, we will systematically move the energy of the body and mind to keep light and look toward Spring with lightness of heart.

❤️Solfeggio Frequencies

Solfeggio Frequencies make up an ancient 6 tone scale used in sacred music including the beautiful and well known Georgian chants. Each solfeggio tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your mind, body and spirit in harmony.


❤️TIBETAN SINGING BOWL HEALING SOUND

Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries as a powerful tool for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul. Sound has been lauded as the healing of the future- as its enormous potential to bring peace and wellbeing is being widely studied and verified scientifically. Kate has a range of beautiful high vibration Buddha Bowls including the huge handcrafted 7 mental “Queen Victoria Kali Gunapatiye” removers of obstacles.

A University of California study to examine the potential effects of a singing bowl meditation reported a significant difference was found in all end points of the study showing-

✅Better mood
✅Less tension
✅Decrease in Anger
✅Relief from depression
✅Less anxiety
✅Less physical pain
✅Improved spiritual well-being

Ref https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5871151/


❤️MOONCYCLE ALCHEMY

The Cycles of the Moon too have long been recognised as auspicious times and celebrated in Yogic, Buddhist, farming and gardening traditions. "As above, so below". Like the tides and oceans you may too feel the power of the gravitational pull of the moon?

While each Moon has its own character and speaks differently to each of us, the Full moon is a time of heightened energy, action and emotions. The energy of a Full Moon (3 days before and 3 days after peak) are an opportune time to refine, formulate and formally state and charge heartfelt intentions with power. We're always setting intentions and this is a way to approach this in a conscious way. There is power in coming up with visions for our life, and keeping them in our sights as they come into being.

The Full Moon can heighten emotions, both good or bad, and can potentially make you or others more sensitive as well. To cultivate peace and equanimity within this energy allows us to take the lessons and the gifts and walk with more power to the best version of ourselves and our lives.



❤️About Yoga Nidra

Authentic Traditional Yoga Nidra is a potent form of guided meditation that systematically relaxes the body and mind. So simple and scientifically studied.

It rejuvenates and liberates energy from deep within the cells of the body. It has the powerful potential to strengthen and expand consciousness and is used to support deep healing in the body. 45 minutes of yoga nidra is said to have the relaxation benefits of 3 hours sleep and is used therapeutically to treat stress, anxiety and support healing.

The practice of Yoga Nidra has been shown in peer reviewed scientific studies to-

✅ Improve back pain
✅ Fight Insomnia
✅ Relieve Rheumatoid Arthritis
✅ Relieve Tinnitus Stress
✅ Balance PMS Mood
✅ Increase dopamine levels
✅ Lower anxiety and depression symptoms
✅ Combat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

❤️ About Sarah Beale
Sarah is a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga teacher, teaching Ashtanga, Yin and Vinyasa styles of yoga. She has also begun teaching Pregnancy yoga after training with Dr Pooja Maddela in Auckland.
Sarah first discovered yoga with the Bikram hot method of yoga when she was 18, starting the practice mainly for the physical benefits it offered. Much later along the path she discovered Ashtanga yoga which was just as dynamic but was more of an internally heating practice & moving meditation. She began to fall in love with this yoga for the spiritual journey & its therapeutic benefits. She has practiced Ashtanga for the last 6 years, started teaching in 2014 and trained with Gregor Maehle & Monica Gauci from 8 Limbs Yoga.
Sarah also practices other forms of yoga such as Yin and Vinyasa, finding treasures in each method, and intuitively teaches based on the experience she has felt within herself. Sarah is dedicated to self-inquiry and personal/spiritual growth, always learning something new which she loves to share. She teaches with compassion, warmth and humour, adapting each class, no matter what the style, to the students who are present in the room.
Sarah is passionate about Ayurveda, Herbal remedies, Aromatherapy and anything which assists the body to heal itself
Sarah and her partner Alex moved from Auckland to Napier in January 2017 to pursue a more relaxed way to live. The opportunity to practice with her teacher, Peter Sanson was one of the big draw-cards for Sarah to move to Napier. Sarah continues to teach various styles of yoga at different locations in Napier on occasion. They now have a newborn baby boy and raise him here at the Wellness Sanctuary which is also their home.
She loves pouring her creative energy into, and holding space for the community at the Sanctuary. As well as teaching many of the yoga classes at the Wellness Sanctuary, Sarah organizes workshops & events, facilitating Ecstatic Dance and offering Reiki treatments.

Beginner's Yoga Workshop with Sarah Beale

If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Yoga is for EveryBODY.

Full Moon Ceremonial Cacao Yoga
Jun
17
6:00 PM18:00

Full Moon Ceremonial Cacao Yoga

Both the sacred Cacao medicine and the practice of Hridaya Hatha Yoga are paths to the Heart.
In this offering, they come together to map a journey into the sweetness and warmth of the Awakened Heart.

CACAO
The tradition of drinking ceremonial cacao has its origin in the ancient cultures of the Mayas and Aztecas in Central America. It was used to evoke Ixcacao – the goddess of Chocolate, Fertility and Abundance. She was also known as the “Queen of Love and Pleasure”, connected with the energy of the Heart.
We will share a cup of this magical plant - the pure ceremonial grade cacao by cacao shaman Keith Wilson.

Cacao is an amazing plant medicine - a powerful aphrodisiac, mood enhancer, an antioxidant that protects the heart, densely packed with nutrients and proven to be the most pharmacologically complex food in nature! It can improve your memory, reduce heart disease, shed fat, boost immunity, and create loads of energy.
Cacao contains the neurotransmitters and chemicals responsible for wellbeing, as well as anandamide, known as the bliss molecule that leaves us feeling euphoric, moderating pain perception, as well as assisting in regulating appetite and mood.
When high quality cacao beans are prepared for ceremony, all the mood enhancing neurochemicals in cacao become particularly active. It increases blood flow and nutrition to the brain, heart and skin, and the whole body is nourished. People report heightened awareness, focus and intensified sensations.

HRIDAYA YOGA
Hridaya Yoga or "Yoga of the Heart" is a gentle yet powerful practice of meditation in different postures. Based on the ancient Yogic texts, "asana" or yoga posture is the one which is comfortable, yet firm and the yogi can meditate on the infinite.
Hridaya takes us into the infinite space of the Heart, the seat of the Self and the abode of pure Awareness.

MUSIC AND POETRY
... will be the other tools guiding us on this journey.

Sound Healing Journey with Nick Heke Worrall

Join me for the co-creation of a beautiful harmonic soundscape with my crystal singing pyramids and bowls which will allow you the time and space to reach a deep state of relaxation, this in turn allows the body and mind to release old stagnant energy and disease.

This Sound Journey at the Wellness Sanctuary will be centred around focussing and calming the mind and releasing unwanted thoughts and mental tension. The crystal grid with Sapphire as the central crystal will reflect and enhance this.

Sound healing is a powerful tool which rest on two principles.
1: like attracts like
2: the highest pure vibration in any given environment will bring all other vibrations into uniformity with it.

The tools I use vibrate at least at three times the frequency of the usual human vibration. This will “force” the vibration of your field to raise.

About me:
I am a 35 years young Haumoana resident who has a deep passion for helping others discover their true self.

I have my own spiritual healing business and work out of the cornucopia healing rooms the lotus centre Hastings and the upstairs at the Napier Buddhist centre.

My offerings include Reiki, Private and group sound healing, Crystal Energy healing, intuitive readings with tools like tarot and Oracle cards and relaxation massage. I also enjoy using sound healing in all my offerings.

This is accessible to all people regardless of what life has put in front of you... everybody is welcome.

Let.It.Go: A Self Love Workshop

During the workshop, we will explore the shadow side of us – those limiting beliefs, thoughts and habits we’re aware of, but find oh! so very hard to shift. Why is it difficult for us to let go, forgive (ourselves!) and move forward, at last?

Workshop facilitators Céline Harleaux and Sarah Beale are absolutely thrilled to host this second self-love workshop! They will create a safe space for us as we explore past hurts, mistakes, or losses, as we check in with ourselves and learn to love all parts of us unconditionally.

DETAILS OF THE WORKSHOP:
We’ll spend three hours together. Here's what you can expect:
- A Sharing Circle – for us to exchange, listen and heal;
- A powerful ThetaHealing® Meditation and energy clearing;
- Quiet Reflection & Altar Ceremony;
- Gentle Yin Yoga.

There will, of course, be time for a break. We will provide a selection of vegan, homemade sweets, and herbal teas. You are of course welcome to bring something to share with the group.

WHAT TO BRING
Most of all, come with an open heart! You may also want to bring a notebook and a pen, as well as a snack or a dessert to share.

Many women long for their men to share yoga with them. And many men long to find ways to connect into their soft side, yet it seems hard to open to it in a society that conditions us into stereotypes. This open to female/male couples as much as female/female and male/male couples.

Nicholas Heke-Worrall is a reiki and sound healer, massage therapist and passionate yogi. It was a journey of becoming whole. He has experienced the traditional male stereotyped life through several years as a builder in the army. Like so many he used alcohol and drugs as ways to cope with his emotions until he found balance and joy through yoga and the holistic healing arts. Today he helps others to find their power.

Sophia Christine is a teacher of yoga, mindfulness and transformation. She found health and joy beyond anything she thought possible on her yoga journey. She is passionate about applying the ancient tools of yoga to create balance in our modern lives. The magic of intimate relationships has always fascinated her, two people who help each other to be the best version of themselves. She loves sharing the tools that help us to stay in the state of magic that brought us together in the first place.
