HOW TO YOGA - Monthly workshop with Arjanna at Modern Organic
Whether you are brand new to yoga or a regular practitioner looking to deepen your understanding of the Yogic Practice, this monthly 90 minute workshop with Arjanna will provide or refresh your foundations to build your own authentic yoga practice, so you feel empowered to practice anywhere in the world at any given time.
We will take a fun, informative and methodical approach towards learning:
- the correct technique and alignment - breaking down some of the bread and butter asana and sequences -explore wisdom from multiple yoga lineages - use our bodies to embody wisdom from multiple yoga lineages - discuss and practice the 8 limbed yoga path (more than just about the body) - get to know each other and like minded individuals in a welcoming and safe space. These workshops are designed for beginners, but are great for experienced yogis to get back to the basics and spend a little more time than a regular class allows to correct your technique.
*** Each month for 6 months will be different, so you can come for one or all of the upcoming workshops!
Upcoming workshops: May 1st: 11-12:30pm June 12th: 11-12:30pm July 10th: 11-12:30pm Investment: $25 per session. Bookings essential and space is limited to just 15 yogis.

After experiencing trauma or difficult times you can feel stuck, alone, lost, exhausted, unsure of yourself and your future. Can you relate?
Trauma is an elusive word, which perhaps you wouldn’t consider is what you’re going through. Trauma is not just accidents but also: - Divorce/Break up - Death in family - Domestic Violence - PTSD - Career change/Job title - Moving - Family break down - Business change - Medical/Health condition/s -New changes or unexpected changes in life - And so much more
In this 3 hour immersive workshop we cover: * Mind – Understand the psychology of trauma. Practical information that will help in your day to day life. Take back control of your mind and overcome unwanted thoughts & emotions.
* Body – Learn about your biochemistry in tangible ways to discover how to help your body with healing and recovery.
* Heart/Soul – Reconnect to your true self, learning to feel again, trust again and integrate various types of wellness modalities to suit your personal needs and circumstances.
When I was recovering from my own traumas I was so frustrated that support seemed so 'fluffy' with their approaches. I wanted practical tools that were useful. I wanted science and understanding of what happened in my body and mind. I wanted tangible, logical resources that would help me move forward. That's why I created this workshop in this way. So that you will take away useful tools to feel confident and ready to move forward.

About your wild women:
ARJANNA: Arjanna is a fully embodied yoga teacher with a decade long journey with the yoga practice. Following her travels to learn from the most authentic teachers, healers and medicine workers, she currently shares her learnings in yoga and meditation to diverse communities, including here at the Central Coast and metropolitan Sydney. Arjanna feels a deep call towards sharing the 8 limbed path of yoga, and is as passionate about yin and vinyasa practices as she is about supporting others in the integration and transformations that are the byproduct of these ancient practices. This has led her to her past and ongoing work holding space at conscious festivals/movements, facilitating women’s circles, and hosting mindfulness retreats immersed in nature. Her wish for those who share space with her is that they deepen their connection with themselves - body and mind, and their surroundings - humans and nature, to live an authentic, meaningful and joyful life.
BRIDIE: Bridie has been a yoga teacher and healer for 11 years. Trained and working under guru's in Hatha, Satyananda, Vinyasa Krama, Tantra, Abode Healing, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Reiki, Yin. She is passionate about Womb Healing and specialises in Pregnancy through the Chakras which she teaches on teacher trainings. Having recently become a Mother herself, her practice has softened and deepened. She works intuitively with crystals and energy. Her offerings come from deep rooted rituals within her daily life. You'll find her equally on the beach, laughing running after her daughter or popping around to a friends house to do a healing or energy clearing. She believes in the duality of life. The pure joy of being here, in this moment. And she brings this wealth of spiritual depth and lightness to her offerings.

Are you yearning for an experience of deep connection with your spirit and the star ancestors?
Your system will thank you for bringing you to the sanctuary of Kurradji Dreaming where your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies will come into full alignment and be rejuvenated and recharged in a group meditation setting.
Indigenous Australian Medicine Man Jason Engelbrecht, known as a Kurradji, together with his partner Shelley McConaghy will lead you through an experience where you will: - Receive your own individual experience of connection with the star ancestors - Sense Jason using various techniques to lift and shift what’s not for your highest good including sound medicine and the use of crystal wands while he conduits medicine people in the spiritual hierarchy who are 100% aligned with the light - Finish with a ‘car wash for the soul’.
Jason and Shelley’s work is truly unique, as anyone who has received a spiritual alignment session with them will attest. The power and light that they bring through is something to behold.
Don't miss the opportunity to experience this bliss.
You will leave feeling lighter and more energised, with a deeper connection to the ground on which we walk, the ancestors who lovingly hold us each day, and the spirit residing within you.
What's being said about these events: “I attended a group healing with both Shelley and Jason and it was profound 🙏 It was the golden nugget to tip the scales on a lot of what I have been healing and integrating this last 10 months from previous trying years and aspects of my childhood trauma. I feel and see the difference and am also receiving comments from others which further validates the shift I know has taken place 💛😀
I am deeply grateful and look forward to partaking of their services again and I am whole heartedly recommending them to others 💖” Sumar Lovin
“I had the most amazing experience and emotional shifts today with Jason & Shelley! Such beautiful people with amazing gifts! Highly recommend! Xx” Jo Watt
"I attended a group healing with Jason and Shelley on the 25th of February this year in Dubbo. Prior to this healing I had begun to work through things on a spiritual level and had been struggling to keep on top of things. I was severely pushed by my guides to attend this particular session and through resisting against them, I finally gave in with less than an hour before the event starting. In fact it was so close that my payment had not even been electronically received upon my arrival.
With the time of each person sharing a little about themselves and why they had come to the healing, during my turn I declared that I wasn't exactly sure why I had been pushed to attend. However I did say that I had been on this journey for a number of years and that it was time to start pulling out all stops and hesitations with both my spiritual journey and abilities.
To this day I'm still unsure of what exactly happened that night, but there was undoubtedly a closed-door opened. The chain of events that have taken place from that night on has been a consistent flow of inner work that has left my head spinning these following months. I honestly don't have the words in the English vocabulary to describe the things that have happened since. The only thing that comes close is the Japanese word "Yūgen". Which is said to mean a profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of the universe and suggests that beyond what can be said, but is not an illusion to another world. It is about this world and this experience.
Thank you to you both and I certainly look forward to your next trip back to Dubbo." Dave Campbell... See MoreSee Less

POLLY WILSON - Like many, what started out as a purely physical practice with time Polly started to notice the shifts that were occurring as a part of this re-discovery of body, breath and mind. Polly believes in the power of introspection in Yoga, less about creating the perfect pose and more about balancing the nervous system in order to heal. Her classes can be meditative, with lots of fluid movement, breath awareness and space to go within. I have over 1000 hours of training and get my inspiration from many styles and sources including Embodied Flow, Tantric Hatha, Yoga Therapy and of course my own regular practice.
