Friday 6-8:30pm | The Ralston Method Signature Flow

Seamlessly integrating The Ralston Method signature Strong, Centred, and Inverted elements into a moving meditation deeply connecting to the rhythm of our breath to ride us through strong standing postures, arm balances, inversions, backbends, twists before we melt into delicious seated folds. A strong yet enjoyable flow to get you out of the head, fully embodies and present to the moment. Come with an open heart and ready to learn. 

 

Saturday 9:30am-12pm | Journey To The Psoas

Drop deep into a somatic experience and reconnect with your life force. Work through and embodied asana practice to release stored tension in this deepest muscle of the human body. Our fast paced modern lifestyle (which runs on the adrenaline of our sympathetic nervous system) chronically triggers and tightens the psoas - making it literally ready to run or fight. The psoas helps you to spring into action - or curl you up into a protective ball... The psoas is far more than a core stabilising muscle; it is an organ of perception composed of bio-inteliigent tissue and "literally embodies our deepest urge of survival, and more profoundly, our elemental desire to flourish".

 

Saturday 1:30pm-4pm | Heart Chakra Explosion

Having the courage to embrace our vulnerabilities and fears is one of the most powerful and liberating things we can ever do. This class invites you to break out of your misperceptions and shift into a fresh perspective. We will work on building confidence and strength in our shoulders, chest and abdominals through foundational postures like handstand and forearm balance. Floor and standing backbends will teach us the grace of opening our bodies by unlocking the upper back, chest and shoulders, as well as our quadriceps and hamstrings. These exercises strengthen our lower back and open the front of our body, allowing us to tackle more advanced inverted backbends like Scorpion and Hollowback postures.
