Namaste

Welcome to December – another year seems to have whizzed by!!  Thank you all for sharing your yoga with us @ Whispered Secrets and I know I speak for all of us – Clare, Monika, Nicola and myself  – it’s an absolute pleasure sharing our yoga with you x

Your yoga, your studio and your feedback wonderful – please let us know if there are classes you would like to see on the timetable next year.  An extra lunchtime Swiss Ball session has been proposed and Jeffree will be offering a weekly daytime Meditation class on Wednesdays from 12.00 – 1.00pm commencing in February.  This will be an awesome session to do and give you a regular meditation practice.  I would also like to get the Pranayama & Meditation class back on the timetable and we have requests for the monthly Reiki Share Group to re-commence.

Please let me know if you are keen for any of these and preferred days.

Just a couple of events on this month to enjoy:

Sunday 14 December 

1.00 – 4.00pm

This monthly event is a wonderful opportunity to connect with Jeffree’s easy and flowing style of meditation and enjoy his peaceful music in surround sound.

This month Jeffree is interviewing Stephen Strongman and offering guidance, insights and wisdom on the power of meditation.  Trish Moore from Serenity Crystals will also be there sharing her knowledge of how you can use crystals to enhance your everyday life and will have plenty on hand for you to browse and purchase.

This day is offered by donation and will be the perfect chance to recharge and breathe in all the Christmas season madness.

Eco – Wrapping your Christmas

Here’s a wonderful idea from one of my favourite websites by a lady called Aime Sue:

http://www.nouveauraw.com

image

 

Wrapping paper is full on toxic chemicals and can’t be recycled or burnt so she offers beautiful photos and step by step instructions for wrapping your gifts in fabric.  It is a Korean tradition and the idea being that you keep the fabric from your gifs and reuse for others.   And of course doing something for the environment.

image

 Gifts Vouchers & Shop

There are lots of items in the shop: malas, silver & gemstone pendants, glassware, soy candles, lamps, bracelets, crystals, yoga mats, Morroccan lamps & beautiful glass oil lamps.  Or simply purchase a gift voucher which can be redeemed in the shop, Reiki/Sacred Geometry Energy Healing session, or for yoga classes.

Class Timetable

Classes run right up to Christmas Eve with the last class for the year being Tuesday 23 December @ 6pm.  We re-open on Monday 5 January with 5 classes:

Mornings @ 9.30am on Monday, Tuesday & Friday

Evenings @ 6.00pm on Monday & Wednesday

Jeffree will be offering a SIMPLY SUNDAY on Sunday 18 January as an introduction to his ‘Simply Stillness’ Meditation class starting Tuesday evenings January 20 & 27 and Feb 3 @ 7.30pm.

So here’s wishing you all the very best for a special Christmas Break with much laughter, joy and blessings.

Within us all is a unique potential to heal ourselves and help others.  In this workshop we will help you tap into your own healing abilities and in trusting your own inner guidance and intuition.

There are many systems and methods of healing to train in and each offering sound steps to start your journey as a healer. These provide you with a solid grounding but no doubt, you will find that as you work with clients that you receive little nudges or guidance to modify, or add, other elements to your healing work.

This is ‘hands-on’ day with the opportunity to work along side professional healers, each coming from different methodologies and sharing their own insights, experiences and practical tools.

For those of you wanting to move into Energy Healing we hope this day will offer clarity and confidence to take that step. For practitioners – we hope this day will encourage you to explore your uniqueness and gifts as a healer.

Join:

Pat Waldin – True Lifeforce Healing. Pat channels universal healing energy in a combination of light, crystals and sacred sound to guide you on your journey to complete wellness; physically, emotionally, mentally & spiritually.

Trish Moore – Serenity Crystals. Trish is a clairvoyant, medium and intuitive healer working through her guides. With her special connection to the crystal realm Trish offers wonderful insights as to how you can incorporate these beautiful allies for healing work.

Michelle Henderson – connects with her guides and offers channelled and crystal energy healing by way of a crystal globe guided healing. Michelle is intuitively guided and uses her knowledge to share with others to awaken or gently guide.

Annie Van Den Bergh – owner of Whispered Secrets Yoga & Healing Centre is an intuitive yoga teacher, reiki & crystal energy healer with Sacred Geometry training. Annie loves teaching, sharing knowledge and enjoys seeing others connecting and finding their own passions.

YIN YOGA

with AMBER WILSON

image

SAT 6 DEC Spine Series 2.00 – 4.00pm

SUN 7 DEC Kidney Series 11.00 – 1.00pm

Cost: $40 a day $72 for both days

In this workshop we will be exploring the fundamental principles of Yin Yoga by approaching the practice in two distinct ways. First by understanding the physical benefits of the practice then by focussing on the subtle body. Understanding these practices and how they can be effectively integrated into a regular yoga practice can have profound and lasting effects on a persons overall health and well-being.

With 80% of the Western World experiencing some form of chronic back pain in their lifetime, greater awareness is needed in how to maintain health in this core region of our body.

The first workshop will look at how to safely work the spine to illicit the body’s natural healing response and counteract effects of deterioration and degeneration.

In the second workshop we will look at the subtle body and learn the path of the kidney meridian, working specific Yin poses that stimulate Qi flow to draw refined energy to the deepest layers of our body. The kidneys, described in Chinese medicine as the ‘root of life’, will replenish all the organs of the body when balance and health are maintained.

AMBER WILSON has been a student of Yoga since 1991. She began in NZ before moving overseas where she met her principal teachers Sarah Powers and Richard Freeman. While travelling extensively she has had opportunities to study with many senior teachers of Yoga, Meditation and Buddhism. Amber began teaching while living in New York and draws on her continued studies of the wisdom traditions, is a graduate of Insight Yoga (which interweaves the practices of Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism & Transpersonal Psychology) and also Ashtanga yoga and mindfulness meditation.

October brings: Sunday morning Yoga, Meditation, Breath Workshop

image

NAMASTE

As the clocks move forward this weekend it’s time to freshen up for Summer and no better way than with a SUNDAY MORNING YOGA session… finally!!!  Join our new teacher to Whispered Secrets Team:

image

 

Nicola Simpson – she is fun, engaging and passionate about her yoga.  You can read her profile here: https://whisperedsecretsyoga.com/profiles/

Nicola will be teaching Sunday mornings from 9.00 -10.15am – so plenty of time afterwards to go out, fresh and vitalised, for the rest of your Sunday.

First class is Sunday 5th October.

Please note that the Tuesday lunchtime Pranayama & Meditation class is postponed for awhile – hope to get that back on track soon as I love that session.

GLASS ECO WATER BOTTLES

At last some water bottles that I don’t mind using.  We all know the importance of keeping well hydrated but I hate using plastic sipper bottles, or the special canisters out there on the market.  Just arrived in the shop are these great glass bottles with screw lids and decent sized openings.  The pink and blue ones are $20.  The black ones are $25 and have an infuser which unscrews at the bottom allowing you to add fruit, or your favourite herbal tea.  I like to add fresh fruit, carrot swirls or fresh herbs straight into the top of mine.  You can purchase these bottles at the studio.

Once again we have a busy month – please remember to book your spaces for the workshops nice and early to avoid disappointment.

YOGA and MEDITATION WORKSHOP

THE HEALING PROPERTIES OF OUR BREATH

SATURDAY 25 OCTOBER

10.00 – 3.00pm

$50

Our breath is with us from the moment we enter this world until the time we depart from the body.  We can learn a lot from our ongoing changing breath.  As we become more aware of our breathing, the breath will help us become more aware.

In this workshop we will explore some of the innumerable ways of how we can work with breath to become more relaxed, centred and balanced, creating harmony in our day.

Whatever stage, age, condition or situation in life you are dealing with, you can consciously make use of the life giving and healing properties of your breath.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced yogis (to deepen your experience).

Lucia Haines is facilitating this workshop. Lucia is an experienced and qualified Yoga and Meditation teacher and encourages people to listen inside and connect with their soul.

Bookings Essential – for more information and to book your space please contact Lucia: 021 266 9464

July Updates – Concession Card info

image

NAMASTE

Some more exciting events are happening at the studio but first I need to put on my business hat.  I am changing the validity of the concession cards from 6 months to 3 months as I seem to be sitting with a number of expired cards and I want to encourage you to make your yoga count.  The effects of yoga are cumulative – it’s not the intensity, or difficulty, of a practice that reaps rewards but the consistency.

I am offering a three month amnesty – so if you bought your card within the last year (July 13 – June 14) you can still come in and use up your sessions.  They will be valid until the end of September.

The monthly AP is now $120 per month and for a minimum of 6 months duration.  Do check out the website: https://whisperedsecretsyoga.com/class-timetable  where you’ll find some great pricing incentives to keep you a regular yogini.

Also I do encourage you all for hygiene reasons to purchase your own yoga mats for class –  I now stock the Gaiam Yoga Range.   Not only are they good quality, durable but thick enough for the wooden floor and are very well priced at $40 each.  Plus…. at last – Eftpos facilities are on their way!!

Now to the fun stuff…..

We still have spaces for the YOGA, MALA & MEDITATION DAY – these photos are malas made at the last workshop

 SUNDAY 13 JULY  10.00 – 4.00pm

This workshop is with Trish Moore and myself.  Wooden beads & silk cord are included in the price and we will have extra crystals, findings, beads to accent your mala.  The day will start with a yoga and japa meditation session to get you tuned in and then its your turn to get creative.

SELF HELP CLASS – SATURDAY 2 AUGUST

I have been introducing this amazing healing modality in the classes: so simple, so effective and available to us all – a bit of finger yoga.  Simply holding your thumb, as shown in the diagram above, will reduce worry, stress and tensions as well as clearing the meridians of the stomach and spleen.

The Jin Shin Jyutsu organisation offer Self Help Classes and I have asked them to present one at the studio on Sat 2 August.  Simple holds for breathing, stomach cramps, nausea, fear of flying, headaches are just some of the hand positions you will be taught to practise on yourself and family.

I am not sure yet of the price and length of the course (I’ll know next week) but please email: whisperedsecretsyoga@gmail.com  or text me: 021 379 286 your interest and we can book you in.

CONNECTING WITH YOUR GUIDES
Sunday 15 June
10.00 – 4.00pm

Our day to day lives keep us busy and it is easy to miss those little ‘I knew it!’ moments and then we forget……until the next time.

We all have a spiritual support network only too willing to help us – if we would just ask and listen.

Some of us have flashes of insight, a knowing or vision.  How do we deal with these and use our insight to help ourselves or others?

Join Trish Moore and Annie van den Bergh in a day of learning tools and exploring ways to connect and communicate with your spirit guide network.

Annie (Whispered Secrets) will use yoga techniques to quieten the mind, move into stillness and heighten our perception of our etheric (energy) body and intuition.

Trish (Serenity Crystals) will guide you through simple techniques to explore your senses, to understand, recognise and trust the message and guidance that you are being given.

A hands-on day of shared knowledge and experience to allow you to open up to the magic of your unique gifts.

Cost: $85

Please book your space with Annie: whisperedsecretsyoga@gmail.com

Please bring a plate for a shared lunch on the day.
