upcoming special 'urban retreat'
saturday july 27th
8.30am - 5.30pm
cost: $50 (drop-in, no bookings req'd)

a chance to deepen your practice

last month's urban retreat was such a success that we've decided to run it again.

the normal saturday program runs, 3 yoga classes... and in between we will go deeper, with a strong focus on meditation - all guided by toby - as well as appropriate times for rest and lunch.

the idea of an urban retreat is that you can set your normal 'worldly dramas' aside, and put a solid block of time into investigating and developing the nature of your own mind. then you can go back home to your friends and family and see if you have new perspective... new skills...

it's not difficult. we pace ourselves comfortably. you can rest any time.

it's also great to share the experience with a group of like-minded people, in a quiet environment.

there's a feeling to be gained. you can't imagine it until you get there, at the end of the day. it comes from taking the time to practice.

no bookings required. just pay on the day. try it and see?

Sundays change to the sunday class

the 10am sunday 2hr class will now be considered 'advanced yoga'.
not advanced in terms of physical difficulty - just a more mature approach to the mind-based aspects of yoga.

 for years now we have had a regular group of participants, working together on our personal yoga practice. this class includes discussion, deliberate practical and theoretical learning, on a more advanced level than 'just stretching' or relaxation-type yoga. we focus on sharing our personal experience as we try to develop the tools, particularly breath-work and meditation.

this is a class for people who want to become part of a group, who want to take their practice to a new level. it's not about zoning out or drifting off. in this class we are focused on personal and spiritual development - and engaging.
all are welcome and we'd love new members to join our close group :)

- note: we are starting a book club again, looking at the buddhist teachings of 'how to be your own therapist' by lama yeshe -

suits any level

thursday breath class

toby runs this session. this is advanced training in yoga.

most people don't realise that their breathing is an exact reflection of their mental state. all psychological and emotional tensions directly alter the breathing. the yoga of breath-work is to unlock the unconscious mind and resolve emotional issues of the past.

we all know anxiety is linked to breathing. there are many levels to this, because all anxieties are built based upon the past experiences we have had. breathwork is designed to create openings in our lives we have locked away. it's also one of the fastest ways to unlock illness.

thursdays 6.15-7.15pm drop-in sessions cost $10

suits all levels. no bookings required.

free meditation downloads!

toby has been writing and recording a full meditation and breath-work training program, which is now finally available on-line for free. we used to sell these for $5 each, but we prefer that people have access to them for free, so that it is easier for people to try... we just want more people to meditate, more often :)

these sessions are part of an 18 part series: "path to enlightenment"
this is a full step-by-step easy-to-learn training of the basic and advanced principals of yogic meditation, how to understand each step of the way, and how to use simple tools to develop your mind and awareness.

now available on itunes, the series is also available on spotify, googlepodcasts, and at anchor.com
just search for "Land of Yoga" on these platforms.

please try them. any feedback will be welcome, thank you.
