Davos Workshop @ Yogazeit August 20th
Unknowing the Known: A Yoga and Movement Exploration
In this series of workshops we’ll explore the depths of ourselves through Yoga Asana and movement practices. What are we actually doing in our practice and why? How do we cultivate a deeply authentic and sustainable practice? How do we know what we know, how do we experience embodiment? Can we courageously challenge old paradigms and make space for new learning and growth? This workshop will invite you to explore all of these ideas and find your own unique expression and exploration of Yoga.
Natasha is a global citizen with a curiosity and passion for life, conscious living and embodiment. She has been teaching Yoga and Meditation since 2006 in Europe, Asia, and Australia and has over 17 years of experience in Yoga and Meditation.

Reciprocity: Embodied Flow Master Class with Tara Judelle November 22nd
Join international teacher and founder of Embodied Flow Yoga, Tara Judelle in Apollo Bay for an intimate evening of discovery and learning. The class is suitable for all levels.
Cultivating a mindful relationship to gravity and stimulus creates the bridge between the meditative mind space and our physicalization of that field. In this masterclass, we will play dynamic sequences using the rebound of the earth and the support of space in order to nurture fluid movement.
Embodied Flow is a continuum of movement and expression drawing from the discoveries of hatha, tantric and somatic movement systems to experience yoga as a living art form. Both philosophy and method, Embodied Flow provides the technology and pathways to a deep sense of ease, strength and connectivity in the human form, empowering practitioners to be their own greatest teacher as they expand, integrate and facilitate awareness in their entire body-mind, to remember and experience the unified field.
Location: Apollo Bay Surf Life Saving Club

A portion of all profits will be donated to help those at Standing Rock.
Our work is to care for the Mother Earth. Funds are needed to help those protesting the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline from being laid across the Missouri River, straight through ancient Standing Rock Sioux land.
Across the plains of North Dakota, thousands of people have gathered with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in recent months to protest construction of a 1,172-mile oil pipeline. What began as a legal battle to halt construction has grown into an international movement headquartered on an 80-acre campground in Cannon Ball, North Dakota. The community began with members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, and has now grown up to 8,000 people.
The pipeline’s path through four states not only threatens Native American sacred lands and cultural sites, but also compromises food security and water access for families who call the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and neighboring communities home. Without a guarantee that the pipeline will be halted, the community plans to remain permanently, even with winter approaching.” Watch this.

Weekend Workshop with Tara Judelle November 19-20th
Spaces within the architecture of our human bodies take on the realm of “sacred” due their amplitude of energy. Any access point in our body can be a portal to the infinitude of the Universe but there are few locations of particular interest that have been recognized through the yoga traditions for millennia. These are: our central channel, our heart, our core, and our crown. When our awareness in one of those centers is blocked or stagnated, the energy in the corresponding physical area will not flow optimally. Thus, we might feel disconnected, disempowered or even disembodied. In this workshop we will explore these sacred arenas within our bodies endeavoring to reconnect them through meditation, asana flows and lecture to reawaken the numinous space within.

Remembrance – Journey to the Ground of Being

SPACE, GRAVITY, AND STIMULUS – AN INTRODUCTION TO EMBODIED FLOW
Our entire self exists from the evolution of our being from a fluid body, existing in the ocean to the complex organization of ourselves that resulted from the push to land. As we moved to land our entire body plan evolved into the phenomenal instrument of living we have now become.
Through this workshop we will explore the story of our existence by remembering the sublime creation of our structure.
