Sankalpa: An Alchemic Yoga Immersion
“Practice is the key that unlocks Yoga’s potential to transform your body, your mind, and most importantly, your life.” – Yogarupa Rod Stryker
A skillful teacher holds space for you to experience the practice both on the mat and the residual effect off the mat. A consistent practice will improve the way you look, think and feel. It will transform the relationships you have with friends, family, colleagues and yourself. It will support the clarity needed to help you find your path, to progress with a greater sense of peace and fulfillment.
Sankalpa: An Alchemic Yoga Immersion blends asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation, visualization, yogic lifestyle, and energetic work. The immersion offers 130 hours of technique and philosophy, learned from my studies with Rod Stryker (founder of ParaYoga), Judith Lasater (founder of Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga), Katheryn Templeton (founder of Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist program), Cyndi Lee (founder of the OM Yoga) , and John Immel (founder of Joyful Belly). I am honored to share this knowledge with you to deepen your practice and illuminate your path.
The curriculum runs weekday mornings Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9.30am to 1pm. Asana classes Bodhi Yoga Studio and Dharma, from January to May. The format allows ample time to practice and can be integrated into flexible work schedules and home life.
In this intimate group format we will develop the teacher-student relationship: to create personal adaptations, develop your self-trust, enlighten your inner knowledge and become the person you are mean to be.
Sakalpa: An Alchemic Yoga Immersion is structured in accordance with Yoga Alliance Requirements. Additionally, if you wish to become a Registered Yoga teacher this immersion’s hours count towards my 200 Hour Teacher Training Program.

Introduction to Ayurveda
We each have a unique constitution, a combination of air, water, fire and earth and that denotes how we function, look and feel.
By understanding our contitution we can make choices that suit and support us optimizing our energy and productivity as well as counteracting the way we feel when we are out of sorts whether it shows up as anger, anxiety or lethargy.
By understanding who we are we can better make lifestyle choices that make us feel balanced rather than tired or stressed.
This 2 hour experience will combine breathwork with gentle asana, self care tips for optimal digestion, better sleep and self massage thechniques, to reduce stress and experience deep rest.
Digestion: Self Care.
Our seratonin (happy hormone) is produced in our gut. Our ability to digest food affects the way we feel energetically and emotionally...
This is a 2 hour workshop to help you understand how to optimize your digestion and address common imbalances by understanding your own constitution and which foods best suit you and the season. How to support your organs through the taste of our foods and to stimulate the your bodys ability to process what you put in it and how to use herbs and your yoga practice to support you.
Yoga nidra is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the 5 senses (pratyahara) with four senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only hearing still connects to any instructions given. The goals of both yogic paths, yoga nidra and meditation are the same, a state of meditative consciousness called samadhi.
It is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. In lucid dreaming, one is only, or mainly, cognizant of the dream environment, and has little or no awareness of one's actual environment.
A workshop experience to bring out the best in YOU
(on enrollment you will be sent a Dosha, or personal constitution Quiz, as well as a suggested materials shopping list with ingredients for delicious smoothie, oils for self-massage, hair and Ayurvedic cleansing herbs.)
We will begin by briefly looking at Doshas, what they are made of how they show up (physically and emotionally) and go to measures to prevent them from going out of balance. Each Dosha reacts to food and routine differently so it is super helpful to know how to recognise your own warning signs before they cause havoc!
After this we will take refreshment and make a simple electrolyte boosting smoothie (if you have a blender).
Then we will enjoy a simple guided Asana and breathing practice to open the body and balance energy. Followed by 5 guided fully supported restorative poses (no yoga experience necessary).
We will conclude with a guided Self massage and a 20-minute, deep relaxation Yoga Nidra practice.
You will be left with tips for the night. An oil treatment for luxurious hair and herbal formula to detox the body while you sleep.
