Stabilizing the core is vital in all movement. A strong core is not just about a flat stomach. Strengthening your core is fundamental for correct posture, back support, alignment and functional movement.

Living in gratitude yoga retreat

Living in gratitude yoga retreat

Join us on this 7-day journey that you will never forget.

From magnificent mountains to rugged cliffs, rice plantations and long black sand beaches, it’s no surprise Bali is known as the island of the Gods. There is a sacred and spiritual atmosphere in the Balinese land from sunrise, when local women spiritually greet the new day, right through until sunset.

Retreats are periods spent away from your everyday life. They offer time and space to do something different. More than a holiday, a yoga retreat adds a blend of physical movement, focused breathing, reflection, meditation and lots more, all of which create a more aware and connected self.

Your days will be filled with activities, as well as having free time to just hang by the pool, go exploring, shopping, and enjoy extra spa treatments too. Explore both Canggu, where you can enjoy the Balinese beaches and maybe learn to surf, and Ubud, the yoga capital of Bali with all it has to offer. It is without doubt that Bali has it all – the culture and people, beautiful locations, amazing cuisine, great spas, and world-class healers.

During this retreat you’ll explore the deep and nourishing qualities of gratitude and joy of what is. Being happy is about acknowledging our gratitude for what we have at that moment, for what we have done, for every success we have achieved. We will also offer you lots of tools to connect to your uniqueness, your purpose and what really drives you and lights you up.

You are here, on this earth, for a very specific reason. You were created with intention and have a purpose in life that is entirely unique to you. The difference between simply existing and truly living a life of passion and intent is having clarity on our purpose and understanding, on a deep level, how to flow with the universe instead of against it.

Now is the time for you to take the next step of your journey and break through the limitations that are holding you back from living the life you are meant for…

Move the way you are designed to move.

The human structure is a masterpiece. An organic creation capable of profound movement. So, why do we move like robots? Isolated movement and looking at the body as isolated parts. When we understand the design we can learn how to move like a human, with flow and synergy.

  • Three components of being in a human body
  • How to support the structure

Stabilising the core is vital in all movement. To create a strong central pillar and support the outer structure. To allow power in sports without compromise. To support the back and improve posture.  But what is true core function? Are the crunches you’re doing enough?

  • The difference between the deep core and outer core muscles
  • Stabilisers versus movers
  • The central pillar
  • Pelvic floor function and activation
  • Applying core stability in yoga

Anatomy Masterclass Series: Back It Up

Anatomy Masterclass Series

Back It Up
Saturday 6th April 2019 | 1:30pm – 3:30pm | $75 p.p
Practical awareness of back care in movement classes

Of course we know how fantastic yoga is for our wellbeing. It tones muscles, improves flexibility and encourages a mindful awareness. But the opportunity for injury does exist. With repetitive patterns of movement as in flows (etc.), plus unilateral positions like warriors and lunges, the concern for back issues arises regularly. An awareness on how to stay safe and keep participants safe will ensure a pain free experience and a long and happy yoga journey!

This masterclass is great for anyone participating or teaching yoga.

In this masterclass we will look at:AMC Back It Up

  • The anatomical structure of the back and pelvis and how this relates to postures
  • Transitions and the danger zone!
  • SI joint care and pelvic positioning in key postures
  • Core support

The session will start with a short theory based introduction, followed by a 60 min masterclass and a time for Q&A’s.
