Nikki will be offering 4 sessions at Amber Tree Yoga this December.
Two are skillfully designed mentoring workshops for teachers – that will help to re-inspire, reassure and refresh your teaching journey. Both workshops work together to create an entire package of learning, or can be taken alone.
Two are open classes, where everyone is welcome – The Ralston Method Signature flow on the Friday night and a Sunday evening outdoor party class – Call of the Wild!
Friday November 30
Signature Flow – $50 – Everyone welcome!
6.15 – 8.45pm class for students and teachers
Curious to know what The Ralston Method is? In this luxurious 2.5hr practice Nikki seamlessly integrates the Strong, Centred and Aligned elements into a moving meditation. Connecting deeply to the rhythm of our breath to ride us through strong standing postures, arm balances, inversions, backbends and twists, before we melt into delicious seated folds. A strong yet enjoyable flow to get you out of the head, fully embodied and present to the moment. Come with an open heart and ready to learn.
Saturday December 1
See beyond the surface – $200 – Teacher development
10.30-1.30pm (60min lunch break) 2.30-6pm
Before we can effectively assist our students we need to cultivate our ability to see beyond the surface of what is being presented. In this training, you will hone in on your ability to see and understand the mechanics behind what you are seeing. We will look at how to assess posture, dysfunction and range of motion in students, empowering you with skills to approach each student with clear intention and guidance to enhance their practice and awareness. Learn how to create language that promotes personal learning, exploration and skilful choice making.
Sunday December 2
Hands on Guidance – $200 – Teacher development
9.15 – 12.15pm (60min lunch break) 1.15-4.45pm
Learn how to assist your students with proprioception when your verbal cues don’t yet land. By the clear use of our hands we can assist students to feel and find ease within their practice. Many of us have experienced forceful adjustments trying to make an ‘ideal shape’ in our yoga lifetime, for many this has lead to injury or intrusion in our practice and we may have shied away from touching our students as a result. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the art and grace of safe, effective, mindful assists in the yoga studio that promote grounding and connection over flexibility and range. You will get to feel and remember just how great hands on assists feel.
Sunday December 2
Call of the Wild party class with DJ Andy Dub – $50 – Everyone welcome!
5.30-7.30pm – 90 min outdoor class followed by post class drink overlooking the river.
Join Nikki and fellow Kiwi DJ Andy Dub for a fun filled outdoor class, to kick off the festive season. These two have worked together of various festivals here and in NZ and can’t wait to get Brisbane moving and grooving. This class has been a festival favourite for many and now it’s your chance to join the tribe! One of our most powerful survival mechanisms is to be part of a tribe, to contribute to and gather from a group of like-minded people. This class is a playful collaboration of music and movement. We get firmly connected to the earth, providing us with roots from which to rise from during this juicy heart expanding, hip shaking class. Bonded by the love of yoga we heed the call of the wild, journeying together through playful asana and tribal beats. When you dance to your own rhythm, life taps its toes to your beat! After the class we will have a sunset toast (drinks included) and $5 from each ticket sold will go to the Hope Uganda Appeal.
