‘Peace on Earth’ Yin Masterclass

4.00pm - 5.30pm on Sunday 15th December 2019

An invitation for you to take a sacred pause, to come home to your beautiful body mind vessel, to quiet the mind and ease the heart, returning to your natural rhythm within the external expansion of time…this is how we cultivate Peace.

Allow Claudia will guide you in this session~ a delicious blend of sweet yin poses to help you unwind and unravel, releasing tension and residue in the body, find expansiveness and down regulate the nervous system through nourishing restorative practices, concluding in guided heart opening meditation. Our journey through the wonderland of our own Being, lovingly held in the soothing resonance created by Katie Jane on crystal bowls.

By cultivating Peace in our own hearts, we can then share this peace with our families and our communities. With each individual attending to their own inner landscape, we begin to, little by little, create a shift in the collective unconscious …the great togetherness unto which we are all responsible….this is our journey through this season…..Peace on Earth and Goodwill to All

Vinyasa

Vinyasa classes are dynamic, energetic classes with a strong emphasis on following the breath as we flow from one pose to the next. These are dialogue led classes with vitalising and energising standing postures.

The classes are sequenced to smoothly transition from pose to pose, with the intention of linking breath to movement. Linking physical movement with breath allows us to be really “present” with what is happening on the mat.

Continued focus for an entire hour reveals a clear and open mind. These classes involve a lot of dynamic movement and the emphasis remains on steadiness. We move from, and return to a place of balance.

Vinyasa will help you to build your strength, flexibility and balance in your body and mind.

Yin Yoga

Yin classes involve passive floor poses that are held for several minutes. Bolsters and blocks can be used to ease into the poses.

Each Yin posture has a “target area” and support and guidance is offered throughout class on how to best “sit with” and explore the physical sensations. The deep stretches allow the body to release tension and improve flexibility.

Yin helps to open the body, relieve stress and calm the mind.

VinYin

VinYin provides the benefits of Vinyasa and Yin in the one class.

During a VinYin class, the sun salutations and flowing standing postures of Vinyasa lead into long hold Yin stretches in a very slow moving progressive sequence. Class closes with short guided meditation which facilitate balance and deep rest.

This is a restorative practice which leaves us with a relaxed and steady sensation in the body and a happy and peaceful disposition.

Rise and Shine

Monday morning Yoga practice beginning with Pranayama & Meditation and moving into a gentle Vinyasa flow warming body, mind & spirit.
Increasing flexibility and encouraging strength of body/mind..
Completing class with Pranayama Meditation.
All levels welcome.

Claudia’s classes are designed to help people be in their bodies and to develop the awareness and ability to remain present for all of the physical sensations, emotional fluctuations and thought formations that bubble up through the layers of the body-mind during the practice.

    Students are guided to refine their sensitivity and ability to listen to what is happening in their body.

            Yoga Teacher

            Kimbali began practising yoga in 2008 and was introduced to Ashtanga yoga a few years later by her first teacher, Yumi Kaneko.

            Through teaching Kimbali hopes to share her love for a practice that changed her life, and which continues to support her daily on many levels. Working as a Mental Health Social Worker for over 10 years, her yoga practice has been the most important tool in supporting her capacity to continue to carry out therapeutic work – through assisting her to manage the associated pressures and attend to her own self care needs.

            Kimbali’s practice and teaching involves a devotional enquiry into self, arrived at through attention to breath and dristhi while practising asana. Through practising this method, she experienced more space in the body and mind, building steadiness and strength within – and her hope is to share with others’ that the qualities of peace and grounding cultivated through practice can be carried into daily life.

              Natalie’s Vinyasa Flow style incorporates mindful strength and restorative mobility to energise and uplift. She aims to create a relaxed and open energy in the room for students to be themselves. You’ll feel empowered & positive after her classes!

                About

                Junction Yoga is a small family business with a passion and commitment for doing good in the local area.  Why? It’s in our blood.  We are three siblings of the third generation of the Sullivan Family to put our energy and effort into the Coorparoo Junction via Sullivan’s Building.

                Parents, adventurers, conservationists, business people and budding yogis. We have each been on our own journeys in fitness, yoga and complementary therapies.  We are not your yoga teachers, but we will ensure you get the best teachers possible.  We have come together with a shared desire to create an environment and business that is good for people.  That is the foundation of Junction Yoga.

                A little family history:

                With a vision for the local community, James (J. A.) Sullivan, our grandfather, built the Sullivan’s Building in 1952.  J.A. sought to do good in and for the community and became well respected in this regard.  J.A. had instilled the same values in his children, and our father, John Sullivan, followed closely in his footsteps.

                Dad had an incredible determination and was known for his exacting standards and generosity to the local community.  He was charitable in the support he offered to organisations that did good in the world also to the local businesses at Coorparoo Junction.

                Dad and Mum married in 1959, and then we came along.  James, Katrina and Claire are three of seven siblings.  Growing up in the local area, the Coorparoo Junction and Sullivan’s Building have always been a part of our lives.  While we all have had our own adventures, lived and worked away, family and community has always remained central to our lives.  In 2008 we came together in business and strive to continue the Sullivan family involvement in the local community.

                We are generally all-round good sorts.  Our goal really is to create the best environment and instruction for you to get what you need out of your yoga practice.  Contact us if you have suggestions, feedback or just want to know a little more about what Junction Yoga could offer you.

                Namaste,

                James, Katrina and Claire

                We are in the back of the “Sullivan’s Building” at the corner of Old Cleveland and Cavendish Roads.  Our address is Level 1, 164 Cavendish Road, Coorparoo.  The studio entry is via Cavendish Road.  Just down hill from Oishii Sushi, you will come across a driveway.  About 2 meters up the drive you will find a glass door which is the entry to Junction YOGA.  Doors open 15 minutes prior to class.  Follow the stairs to the top and you will come to our reception and waiting area.  Your teacher will be there to greet you!  Don’t be afraid to call us if you need directions – 0498 213 203.

                Please bring your water bottle and yoga mat if you have one.  There are mats available to use at the studio if you don’t have one.  We have a change room and shower available, so bring a towel if required.  We provide other props such as blocks, bolsters and straps if required.

                Dress in comfortable clothes that allow you to move and stretch.  Fitted clothes allow the teacher to observe your posture and offer adjustments when necessary, but it is most important that you are comfortable.  The studio is air conditioned.  You may wish to wear layers that can be removed as you warm up and put back on for relaxation.  Yoga is practiced bare foot but you might like to wear socks during relaxation.

                Classes run for 1 hour, except the Monday evening Yoga and Meditation class which is 1 hour 15 minutes.

                Congratulations! You are about to embark on a journey that will change your life. Most of our classes are suitable for all levels however if you are completely new to yoga, it is best to start with our “Beginners Yoga Class” or “Beginners Course”.  Other classes suitable for beginners include “Slow Flow”, “Rise and Shine” and “Yoga / Meditation”  allowing you to learn the basics and alignment of each pose  at a slower pace before you progress into more challenging flows.   These are colour coded green on our class schedule.  You can expect your first few classes may be challenging as you begin to learn the poses, and find your breath. Remember to always work at your own pace and communicate with your teacher. It’s ok to take a break at any time that you need to, rest as long as necessary, then join the class again when you feel better.  Our teachers will ensure you are comfortable, relaxed and made to feel welcome.

                We recommend you purchase your pass or membership and reserve a place in the class you want to attend online before arriving at the studio to ensure you have a spot!  If not possible, you can simply show up and we will help you out at the studio.  Our teachers will ensure you are comfortable, relaxed and made to feel welcome.

                Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first class to meet the teacher and get acquainted with the studio.  Studio doors open 15 minutes prior to class and are locked at the start of each class.  Bring some water, wear comfortable clothes and bring a mat if you have one (if not, we can provide a mat and other props).

                No.  If you have a Junction YOGA membership you just need to pre-register for the course, there is no more to pay on top of your weekly membership cost.

                If you have your own mat, then please do bring it along. Otherwise, you are welcome to borrow a mat whilst you are starting your practice and figuring out if you want to continue long-term. After you have practiced for a while, you might like to invest in your own mat which may also encourage you to practice at home! With regards to other props; straps, blocks, eye pillows, bolsters and blankets are provided in the studio. You are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

                There are no facilities for storing personal yoga mats or equipment at the studio.

                The studio is a “shoe free zone” and is to be clutter free to ensure a safe and comfortable environment.  Shoe storage is in the reception area just outside the studio door.  There is shelf space inside the studio for other personal belongings.  Please remember to turn off / silence your phone while in the reception area and before bringing it into the studio.

                Yes.  The studio has toilets and a shower next to the reception area.  No need to “grab the key” and go outside – ahh, luxury!

                Please ask your teacher any questions you might have and inform them of any changes to your health as it may still be possible to continue with your practice. They will offer modifications where necessary.

                Please follow the advice of your health care provider as to whether yoga practice is appropriate for your condition.  Junction YOGA staff are not medically trained and cannot provide medical advice.  However, based on the advice from your medical provider, they may be able to offer modifications to your postures.

                There is no dedicated studio parking.  Parking is available in surrounding streets and there are shopping centre car parks near by.  Street parking is restricted at various times during the day. Be sure to double check parking signs around the Junction as it varies quite a lot within a small area.

                For example:

                • Kitchener St, at the rear of the studio, may have parks available to suit the 6 am, evening and weekend classes.
                • Old Cleveland Rd, outside Coorparoo State School, is no parking from 7 – 9 am, but generally there are spaces available outside these hours.

                Also, Coorparoo Square (across Cavendish Road) has free 2 hour parking in their Aldi carpark.  Why not drop in to one of the local stores after class..!

                There is fantastic public transport with major bus stops on both Cavendish and Old Cleveland Roads, just a few meters from the studio.

                Coorparoo Train Station is a 10 minute walk from Junction Yoga.

                Please arrive a minimum of five and a maximum of fifteen minutes before the class begins so you have time to set up and settle in your place.

                Generally classes don’t overlap, however, please be mindful of keeping noise to a minimum in the reception area.

                Use the bathroom before class to avoid disruptions later in the class – you can still use the loo if you need to though!

                Leave shoes outside the studio and place other belongings on the shelves in the studio to keep the floor as clear as possible for comfort and safety.  Remember to switch off / silence your phone.

                Keep your teacher informed of any concerns you have or changes to your health.

                Please stay for final relaxation (savasana), as this is where much of the benefit comes.  However, if you need to leave class early, please do so before we start savasana.
