Sukham संघ joy and ease
an introduction to holistic yoga
Yoga is a systematic method to healing, balancing and understanding every aspect of ourselves. It was succinctly articulated by the great Indian sage Patanjali more than 1500 years ago and is more than relevant today! Modern yoga classes are still based upon this philosophy and methodology. This system of traditional yoga is comprised of eight 'limbs' which are articulated and expanded upon in our courses and classes at Kookaburra Creek.
The practices of Yoga are best learnt sequentially as it is very difficult (or even impossible) to practice the subtler, meditative aspects of yoga if there is stress or tension present in the mind or body.
Therefore we recommend the Absolute Beginners Course as a starting point to learn to manage stress, restore balance and wellness and increase the strength and resilience of the physical body. Relaxation becomes second nature and meditation becomes a joy!
Kookaburra Yoga's Absolute Beginners Yoga Course introduces the more physical aspects of yoga: asanas (exercise), pranayama (yogic breathing), pratyahara (deep relaxation).
The Introduction to Meditation Course goes deeper incorporating the more subtle practices and concepts: yogic breathing, deep relaxation, dharana (concentration), dhyana (absorption), samadhi (merging, bliss).
The Yoga, Relax and Meditate Course specifically focusses on the yogic understanding of the mind and its imbalances such as stress, anxiety, unhappiness, addictions - and provides the tools and solutions which can be found through integrating the wisdom and methods of traditional yoga. The Yoga, Relax, Meditate course complements the Absolute Beginners Yoga and Introduction to Meditation Courses, and also stands alone as an introductory level yoga course. We take a slow, steady and gentle approach in each session. The course is suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to learn and practice the yogic methods of relaxation and wellbeing.
