Summer Weekend of Yoga with Barbara Benagh
Over many years, Barbara Benagh’s way of
practicing and teaching yoga has evolved into an inquiry
of applying the mindfulness of meditation practices
with the physicality of asana. And she has slowed the
practice way down, allowing for a flow that offers an
opportunity to examine the potent sensation of action,
reaction and adaptability in an increasingly nuanced
Barbara style is unhurried, alignment based and rich with
story. Her voice and cues carry students into the deep
currents of movement that ripple through the whole body.
These deep currents pulse with the rhythm of breathing
and the body’s innate memory of its aquatic origins
of the sea.
This weekend is for experienced students and teachers
and will include breathwork, mindfulness practice and
asana suitable to intermediate level students.

Benagh & Down Under Yoga School are thrilled to
host the magical Sarah Powers this spring.
a daily yoga and meditation practice into our life keeps
us attuned to the importance of living ordinary moments
with awareness. Nevertheless, even the most dedicated
practitioners hit plateaus and need opportunities to
become re-inspired. In this workshop Sarah will provide
an atmosphere for balancing the body, heart and mind
through active and passive yoga poses, as well as offering
teachings on Mindfulness meditation so that we can deepen
or develop a skillful and committed meditation practice.
Yin yoga is an essential compliment to our more active
styles and offers a vehicle to develop our contemplative
nature. The Yin style also keeps the body supple
at its core while encouraging stagnate chi (prana) to
flow throughout the joints, engendering a quality of
steady ease. The flow practice helps maintain core stability
while enhancing our creative, active energy.
On Saturday we will focus on standing poses and inversions,
a Kidney Yin session and mindfulness practice, with
teachings about turning the mind toward meditation on
a daily basis.
On Sunday Sarah will share a flow sequence focused
on backbends with a liver enhancement Yin session, some
pranayama, and a longer mindfulness meditation practice.
These practices encourage an integration of our Yin
and Yang aspects of being, demonstrating how yoga practices
can value both vitality and insight. A guided and silent
mindfulness meditation will be included in both days.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who has been doing
Yoga for at least one year and has a strong interest
