Hula Hooping Workshop

Hula Hooping(1)

Heard of parents hiding veggies in Spaghetti Bolognaise to trick their kids into eating them? That’s kind of what a hula hooping is like! A surprisingly good workout disguised as a bunch of fun!
If you’re keen to switch up your training, or just want to learn a fun new skill, this is the workshop for you!
Hula hooping works your whole body, with a main focus on your core & co-ordination. Regardless of where your fitness is at, there will be something in this class to challenge or excite you.

For beginners, we’ll focus towards on-body hooping & basic tricks, for intermediate to advanced Hoopers, the emphasis will be on splitting & drills.

Exercise aside, the main point of the class will be to have a giggle & some fun & to pick up a cool new trick or two!

When: Saturday June 16th, 3pm – 4:30pm

Birth Stories and Chakra Healing

Screen Shot 2017-10-28 at 7.47.16 pmThis workshop provides a safe & sacred womens circle to put a narrative to your birth story, and holds a space for you to share and receive.

During the process of birth the crown chakra of the baby passes through the lower chakras (root or naval depending on delivery) of the mother, resulting in enormous energetic shifts. The birth of a mother activates a massive opening in the energetic centre of the heart.

The workshop offers a chakra healing sound meditation to restore balance to these energy centres. The chakra rebalance is done with the use of quartz crystal singing bowls.

Birth is a sacred, intense, and pivotal experience that marks tremendous shift in the lifespan and lifestyle. It is the birth of a mother and a father, the end of much and the beginning of more.

It is an often unspoken about event, despite it marking the beginning of new life, a change of all you know, and for many of us, fear, pain, and overwhelm at the sheer level of transformation that occured.

Contact Bec for more information.

When: Sat, Dec 2nd
Time: 1pm – 4pm
Cost: $40

Bring: Pen and paper.
