Affirm with Asana “I am resilient’

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Sunday 3rd December 10.30am @ Davistown Progress Hall 

Nicole teaches a Hatha style which she calls Namaste Yoga or ‘joyful and nurturing yoga’.
Hatha (Ha- Sun Tha – Moon) Yoga is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that emphasises posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), visualisation, and integrative relaxation.

Nicole’s classes/workshops are relatively gentle and slow flow, great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style. She enjoys teaching a dance of harmonious movement of the body and breath connecting us to our true self.

This workshop teaches a sequence which flows through warrior, balance, forward and side bend practices complete with affirmations. Nicole created the sequence, able to be done on the beach and without a mat (in Nicole’s case), called ‘I am resilient’ . You will discover that reliance in these practices rests on your own body its breath, this in turn builds resilience of body, mind and spirit.

The session begins with Pranayama (breath practices) and progresses through warm up postures and the individual asanas which then evolves into the gentle but powerful flow practice ‘I am resilient’. The session completes with a guided meditation in Savasana (lying down).

As always modifications and variations will be offered so that the sequence can be adapted for individual practice.

Please bring a blanket, cushion and yoga mat (I have spare mats if you don’t have one).

Workshop is $16
Places are limited. Booking and prepayment required.

A Taste of Balinese Yoga workshop

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 

Workshop is Saturday 14th October

10.30am-12noon

at Davistown Progress Hall

for bookings see below

Guru Made Sumantra (GMS) teaches that yoga is a life practice that brings happiness. This yoga is a ‘smile in your heart’ experience and it is with a joyful heart that I share the teachings.

This workshop is an experience of Balinese yoga as taught by GMS received from RSI Markandaya*.
Nicole is a member of the Indonesian Yoga Teachers Association.

The workshop is suitable for the beginner through to more experienced practitioner of yoga and will focus on Hatha practices that train us to unite, awaken and harmonise Surya (Sun) energy and Chakra energy( our energy centres).

Hatha Yoga emphasises posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), visualisation, and integrative relaxation. GMS sees it as the dance of body movement which is harmoniously united with breath as we connect to our true self.

Please bring a blanket, cushion and yoga mat (I have spare mats if you don’t have one).

Workshop is $16
Places are limited. Booking and prepayment required.

YOUR YOGA HOLIDAY in Bali

Posted by: | Comments (0)


Are you interested in a yoga holiday like ‘Namaste Bali’  

but would rather share it with  your own group rather than

join the regular Namaste Bali groups? 

‘YOUR YOGA HOLIDAY’ IS NOW ON OFFER

Nicole and Guru Made Sumantra are now offering private Yoga Holiday groups based on the Namaste Bali experience but tailored more specially to your needs. These are on offer around May-September each year, depending on availability.

‘YOUR YOGA HOLIDAY’ can be a week like Namaste Bali  or just a few days, it will be up to you and your friends/family. Namaste Bali caters for women 18+ but with the freedom of ‘YOUR YOGA HOLIDAY ‘ anyone and any age can join in.

This is an individual service and prices will vary depending on what is requested and how many are in ‘YOUR YOGA HOLIDAY’ group.

It can include more yoga, less yoga, more temple visits, less temple visits , purification blessing and/or healing sessions with Guru Made Sumantra and/or Balinese Yoga.  It will definitely always include the same number of eating experiences!! and this can vary depending on what you like…currently I share a range of restaurants which offer exquisite raw dining experiences as well as fine dining in a traditional and western way as well as catered in villa dining experiences.

The base price begins around $A700 – $A1300 per person (land content for a 3-6 night package) with a full Namaste Bali experience costing around $A1700 pp at the Ubud Art Villa.

Minimum number is 8 , maximum is 14 (depending on whether twin-share or singles).

If you already have accommodation booked and prefer to have ‘YOUR YOGA HOLIDAY’ offered at your own villa this is also possible, we will come to you! The options are endless and we are very flexible yogis of mind and body!

Please feel free to start a conversation with Nicole and see what evolves.

To get an idea of what it might look like check out Namaste Bali 2018

A ‘Namaste Bali’ Catch up event.

Posted by: | Comments (0)

AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECONNECT WITH THE ‘NAMASTE BALI’ EXPERIENCE AND OTHER BEAUTIFUL WOMEN THAT HAVE SHARED THE SAME.

SATURDAY 11th NOVEMBER FROM 11AM-12.15PM (YOGA IMMERSION, $15)

AT DAVISTOWN PROGRESS HALL

             FOLLOWED BY CATCH UP AND LUNCH AT THE LITTLE TEAPOT

This is an invite to all the lovely women that have ever attended a Namaste Bali Yoga Holiday.

Recently Namaste Bali groups have reconnected on the Central Coast to share some yoga, some memories and of course laughter with the common experience having been spending a week together experiencing Namaste Bali.
Great friendships and connections have been forged and I think it is time to share this with the larger group of women that have attended since I began these groups.

A get together is proposed at the lovely Davstown Progress Hall with some yoga followed by lunch and catch up time.
I’ll share some nurturing yoga, ring that Bali bell and recreate a bit of Bali magic to nourish you and sustain you. Then we can share a scrumptious lunch at the Little Teapot Cafe , just a short stroll from the hall.
Sound good?? I haven’t checked in with any of you so I am just putting this date out there, we will go ahead if at least 15 of you say YES!! , if not, we won’t!! Please RSVP as soon as possible.

Yoga immersion is $15. Lunch at your own expense.

I will be on the beautiful Indonesian island of Sumba where this photo was taken last year during some spontaneous beach yoga with a gorgeous group of school girls on their way home from school.

One of the attractions of this place is a complete break from the computer/social media and mobile phone reception……bliss!  So please be patient if you are waiting to hear from me 🙂

If you have any enquiries please email me nurtureworks@netspace.net.au

and I will reply when I get back to Bali after 21st August.

Namaste Bali 2018 appears to be FULLY BOOKED. I am establishing a wait list so  if any of the 13 women who have said YES have a change of mind then I can offer a place.

I will be checking in with the current group of women on my return from Sumba but if they all remain a YES then Namaste Bali 2018 is FULL.

If I have enough new enquiries or you would like a private Namaste Bali experience (minimum number required is 10 to proceed with a second group) I will look to organising another group.

I am already taking bookings for 2019, dates will be Sunday 23rd June-Saturday 30th June 2019, if this interests you.

Just a reminder to all my students or students to be that I am still in Indonesia after just finishing running Namaste Bali, A Yoga Holiday.

I am immersing myself in all things yoga while in Ubud and then off to adventure around Sulawesi, Flores, Sumba then back to Bali.

Yoga Circle classes will resume week commencing Monday 25th September. I will provide an update as the time gets closer.

Namaste, Yoga Love and keep smiling in your heart 💜💚❤💛💙
