The most powerful and accelerated ways to improve your life & the connections with those around you, are often through Svādhyāya (self-study) & Sādhana (your personal spiritual path). Both Prānāyāma & meditation are integral parts of a Yogi’s spiritual practice, & the techniques selected must be considered in the context of lifestyle & outcome.
This workshop describes Prānāyāma techniques such as Nadi Shuddhi, Sama Vrtti & Chandra Bhedana incorporating breath wave, bandhas, mantra, visualisation, digital count & metronome. Attendees new to these techniques will have the opportunity to practice & work with Jess towards proficiency ahead of teaching their students.
You will also learn how to work in collaboration with clients & students to prescribe the most appropriate Prānāyāma techniques for physical, psychological & spiritual wellbeing.
The second component of the workshop focuses on Yogic Chakra meditation which builds on the Prānāyāma techniques already described. This complex method works with the Chakra system to balance body, mind and spirit through a multi-layered approach. The technique is used to accelerate spiritual evolution & insight, & activate higher brain centres.

About the Presenter:
Jessica teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa and Restorative Yoga, focusing on much more than the physical practice (Asana) and includes breathing techniques (Pranayama) and meditation in her classes. Her methods support students to accept where they find themselves, assist them to progress along their own unique path and reconnect them with their inner Guru. She uses variations to ensure students are safe, but appropriately challenged.
Anchored in the Ashtanga tradition – with gratitude for the wisdom and teachers that came before her – Jessica began practicing yoga in 2001 and fell so deeply in love with the discipline, she now teaches private, group and corporate classes in order to share its gifts. Her more focused learning was born under the tutelage of Gregor Maehle and Monica Gauci, commencing in 2016, where she realised the invaluable benefits of the teacher/student relationship. She now wants to share this with you.
Jessica holds a degree in Psychology and studied Astrology and Reiki from a young age. She has undertaken Vipassana in the Indian Himalaya and has worked with Bill Bennett on what he calls the ‘Personal Guidance System’. Jess also worked with the High Commission of India, Canberra as lead demonstrator for the 5th International Day of Yoga 2019 celebration.
