Melbourne & Geelong Weekend of Workshops
With John Ogilvie, Byron Yoga Centre
Friday 24 October 6pm – 7.30pm
Dynamic Flow Purna Yoga
With over 25 years teaching experience, John Ogilvie’s Purna Yoga classes combine the different styles of Iyengar and Ashtanga along with the energy principles of Aikido.
Purna Yoga is alignment based classic hatha yoga and for this dynamic workshop John will flow through Level 3 asana, offering options for the less experienced and a few ‘ridiculous’ variations to challenge the advance practitioners!
Pilates & Yoga Styles
Level 1, 151 Pakington Street, Geelong West
Saturday 25 October
Workshop 1: 11.30am-1pm Introduction to Purna Yoga (FULL)
Workshop 2: 1.30pm-3pm Inversions and backbends (ONLY 4 places left)
With the first two workshops almost booked out already, we are pleased to announce a third session with John Ogilvie. This workshop will focus on a whole variety of twists plus some deep hip openers. The perfect counter session to the backbends of the previous workshop. Participants will also be taken through some pranayama and meditation to complete and integrate the Purna Yoga experience.
There are only 24 spaces at each session so you can expect a focus on one-on-one adjustments and corrections. There are still a few places available in the Inversions and Backbends workshop, 1.30pm to 3pm but limited places so book now!
In the first workshop students will be taken through a Purna Yoga sequence. The focus is on alignment with intelligent sequencing and variations are given for different levels of practitioner.
The second session will progress from preparation handstand to experimenting with more challenging inversions. The workshop will then move onto the major backbends to fully awaken the spine. You’ll be challenged - and surprised at the outcome!
316 Napier Street, Fitsroy
