5 Day Early Morning Yoga Intensive

dec workshop

7th – 11th December 2015
“Symbology For The Soul”

GET IN QUICK TO REGISTER FOR INTENSIVE
When:  Monday 7th – Friday 11th December 2015 
Time:   6.30am – 8am  
Location:  Breathing Space Yoga Studio, 217 Chapel St. Prahran 

Symbology is —derived from Greek word, “Symbolon” which means to join, reunite or “bring back together” 
—Originally referred to the 2 halves of an object which 2 parties broke & later brought back together again.
When restored & “thrown together” with its partner it became whole.This Re-Union reflects Completion, Health, Healing, Wholeness and Resolution.
Hence a symbol suggests both incompleteness and the hinting Power of Secret Meaning, Reunion and Oneness.

A GREAT WAY TO END 2015 IN WHOLENESS

Come spend these beautiful last days of 2015 exploring your deep and personal symbols…through Yoga and Art Therapy Practices
DAY 1: TOTEMS/ Personal/Individual and Totemic Symbols
DAY 2: LOVE SYMBOLS/ Relationships, partners, loved ones, family or friends
DAY 3: TRANSPERSONAL SYMBOLS/ Those that extend into spirit, beyond physical and also connected to those past away onto another plane
DAY 4: SHADOW SYMBOLS/ Those we have disconnected with, disowned or rejected that hold the potential Gold for our Soul (Golden Shadow Symbols)
DAY 5: SOUL SYMBOLS/ Reunion with the Symbols of our Soul

Symbols hold energy and consciousness of their own.
They are profound expressions of the human psyche & occur in all cultures at all times
They speak to our intellect, emotions heart & spirit representing some deep intuitive wisdom that eludes direct expression.
Symbols serve as the essential means of ascending and returning to the Gods, as each and every soul was created unique, yet in union with Divinity and Divine symbols constitute the Soul’s Essence to be awakened or reawakened through the Union or Re-Union with their Sacred Symbols.

“I don’t know whether you can look at your past and find, woven like the hidden symbols on a treasure map, the path that will point to your final destination.” 
― Jodi Picoult, Handle with Care
Symbols often come out in dreams and our unconscious, sometimes from through the shadow (or disowned parts of ourselves)
They generate themselves from the unconscious as a spontaneous expression of some deep inner power of which we are but which we cannot fully express in words…they inhabit us and we inhabit them.
—The gathering of diverse objects or symbols is in itself an expression of unification
………it provides intimacy and connection……
“Symbols are miracles we have recorded into language.” 
― S. Kelley Harrell BOTH YOGA AND ART THERAPY create a deep connection to that which speaks to our Soul and both art forms hold profound and powerful symbols.
Our yoga practice and its many postures, poses connected to nature and the animal kingdom, Gestures (Mudras) and Deities (Gods and Goddesses) are symbolic expressions of our Deepest Core and the Meaning it brings to our lives that is seeking expression and actualisation in the world. 
Come discover what these symbols are for you… exploring both yogic practices and art therapy techniques in a rare and unique early morning intensive that will never come again in quite the same way…
If it calls to your Soul… answer the call…

*Scroll down the event page for more info on Eventbrite link and to register*

Mythology is a wise and stunningly insightful way of identifying traits within our Human Psyche that reveal Truthful and often concealed aspects of ourselves (e.g. undeveloped/unexpressed parts of ourselves or shadow aspects), bringing these to the foreground of our Consciousness and into the Light. These parts often illuminate our hearts and minds and turn that, which is often heavy and leaden, into something Radiant, Light and Gold.

The Myths are infused with archetypes which translate our human experience into a Universal Language of the Heart, and one of the beauties of Mythology is that they are open to our own interpretation and our souls way of deciphering the messages that speak Truth to our Heart and our Soul.

The Yogic Myths have been passed down for 1000’s of years and are filled with Great Wisdom and Truth, still relevant today, emphasising Universal messages of Hope, Union, Power, Service, Beauty, Joy and Love

During this 4 day Morning Yoga Intensive we will be exploring and unpacking the most powerful Myths and pivotal Archetypal Gods and Goddesses, there qualities, gifts, weaknesses/flaws and Divine Archetypal attributes that express themselves through us.

Come engage in a deep and every expanding philosophical conversation through the practice of Yoga exploring these Divine Deities and Archetypes within. 
·       Participants and Students will be able to unpack and explore the Universal messages that lay embedded and infused within the Yogic and Hindu Myths.
·       Explore ways that we can translate and transpose the teachings and Messages into our current lives… revealing the Joy, Light, Love, and Hope available to us.
·       Find ways to take our struggles, challenges and “dark times” in our lives and Find the Light and Illuminating lesson within them.
·       It will help with our relationships, not only with others, but more importantly with ourselves.
·       For Yoga teachers it will deepen their understanding of the yogic myths and tales, and discover ways in which they may be able to translate those into their day to day lives, and assist their students to do the same, through their classes and teaching.
·       Ultimately bring us to a space of Higher Consciousness and Divine Love…

So if you have been going through a challenging or dark time and wishing to see the Light, are wanting to understand deeper aspects of your Psyche, or simply are interested in the Mythological aspects of Yoga and their relevance to us today, then this is the intensive for you!

Each Morning will be filled with both dynamic and restorative yoga asana, pranayama, music, inspirational stories and tales, deep personal self enquiry( svadhyaya), and Yogic Philosophical teachings through Myths in a joyful uplifting way,

Spring clean newsletter

with Andrew Mournehis

Breathing Space Yoga Studio, 217 Chapel St. Prahran

Investment: $ 100 Full/ $85 conc.

We all know about spring cleaning our homes, de-cluttering our lives and throwing out the old to make way for the new.

Well what about a “Spring Clean” for the Soul?

Inside each one of us is a radiant, joyful, blissful Being filled with Infinite possibilities just waiting to be creatively expressed in the world!!!

This Brilliant Light however can, over time, through fear, sadness, anger, stress, poor diet, toxic emotions and lack of self worth or motivation get veiled and shrouded with what are called “The 3 Malas” in Tantric Philosophy.

These Mala are the “dust” that cloud, taint and blur the mirror of our hearts and minds so that we cannot see our True Reflection.

  • One Mala Veils our Hearts so that we find it difficult to Give and Receive Love.
  • One Mala Veils our thoughts, knowledge and mind so we can’t figure out what the “right thing” is to do and we cannot access our Intuitive selves and Higher Voice.
  • The Other Mala Veils our ability to take actions on the very things that are most important In our lives, and we spend much of our time procrastinating or being stuck in the world, when we know we have so much to give, do and Be.

Right across the window of the SPRING EQUINOX this 3 Day Morning yoga intensive we will explore these 3 Malas discover ways to effectively clear the Mala from our Beings to Reveal our brilliant TRUE NATURES.
Through discovering your predominant Dosha which gives rise to a particular Mala in your life, we will learn the relevant “cleaning agents” to clear the “Mirrors” and cleanse the soul…Im sure we can all do with a little Spring cleaning in some area of our lives :)))

So If you have been looking for a renewal of Spirit and Life direction, have been a low in energy, stuck, feeling depressed, overwhelmed, have lost perspective and motivation or are simply looking for a revamp, fresh start and a refreshment of body, mind, and soul then this is the intensive for you!!!

Each Morning will be filled with both dynamic and restorative yoga asana, pranayama, music, poetry, inspirational readings, Svadyaya (Deep Personal Self Enquiry) and Tantric Philosophical teachings, in a joyful uplifting way,
You can be certain there will be Humour and Laughter weaved into our practice… one of the BEST tonics for the Soul!

PLEASE BRING A YOGA MAT IF YOU HAVE ONE (There are some spares at the studio if you don’t)… A JOURNAL AND A PEN
All else will be provided including handouts, with informative and wonderful tips to continue your journey…
If your SOUL is calling your Heart for a cleanse… then follow that call and get your body on the mat…

Spring is Here and Your SOUL WILL LOVE YOU FOR IT!!!
Namaste Andrew

Am THRILLED TO BE SHARING this Early Morning Yoga Intensive.
THE THIRD EYE CHAKRA HAS FASCINATED ME FOR DECADES, and there have been some very exciting developments and research done around this amazing energy centre both physically, energetically and psychically in recent years.
I cant wait to share my years of exploration through Transpersonal work,  Art Therapy Techniques, Yoga and Intuitive Development over 17 years.

Ajna Chakra is the sixth chakra and is our portal of Higher Vision.

Where our natural eyes are the tools to perceive tangible outer objects, our Third Eye offers us the ability to “see” things for which we have no concrete evidence. It’s Sanskrit name is Ajna, which means “to perceive”, “to know” or ” to command”. Hence, it is the center of inner knowing, higher sight, wisdom, intuition, clairvoyance, psychic abilities & dreams (all aspects associated with the right hemisphere of the brain). It is also responsible for our intellect, reasoning, logic, and rational thinking (associated with our left brain). A powerful and centred Third Eye Chakra is one that is able to tune into and balance both hemispheres of the brain and can embrace both  logical, rational thinking with lateral and esoteric views. The Third Eye takes  information from our Lower Mind( Manas) and its connection to our senses, and through deep yogic practices, concentration techniques, meditations, and visualisations is able to Transcend the Lower mind and Access Higher realms and Higher states of Consciousness.
I am thrilled to be able to marry and unite my yogic teachings with some really valuable Transpersonal practices  to explore the mind blowing, consciousness expanding possibilities available through this portal into Higher Vision.I will also be sharing some wonderful Hindu Myths which beautifully illustrate the power of this glorious energy centre.
So if you are ready to open your
Inner Eye and Expand your Vision into Higher Realms then this is the intensive for you…
 PLEASE BRING A YOGA MAT IF YOU HAVE ONE, A JOURNAL AND A PEN.

All Else will be Provided

PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR THE COLOUR PURPLE OR INDIGO
I Truly Hope you can join us for this WONDERFUL YOGA INTENSIVE, DEEPLY EXPLORING THIS FASCINATING CHAKRA

A Wonderful Opportunity to tap into the Healing Energies within and Let them GROW!!!  The First Step begins by registering today…
“The Colour Green”

The color green is the color of balance and harmony and is the great balancer of the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart. Green is also the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. This is why there is so much of this relaxing color on the earth, and why we need to keep it that way. Green is an emotionally positive color, giving us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally. A natural peacemaker, it relates to the counselor, the good listener, the social worker. It loves to contribute to society. It is the charity worker, the good parent and the helpful neighbor. Green promotes a love of nature, and a love of family, friends, pets and the home. It is the color of the garden lover, the home lover and the good host. It is generous and loves to share, and is the color of prosperity and abundance.


Green is the heart centre of the body.


Positive Effects of Green:
Rejuvenating: The color green revitalizes us when we are physically, mentally or emotionally exhausted.
Nurturing: Because of its link with the heart, green urges us to nurture ourselves and others. Green is also nurturing to us – another reason why it is the most predominant colour on earth.

Dependable, agreeable and diplomatic:
The colour green helps us to see situations clearly from all sides.”
excerpt from Colour psychology to empower and Inspire youI have always viewed Yoga as a path of Self-discovery and Healing, and I have gained so much through tapping into the vast expansiveness in the Hub of the Heart….a place where we have 108 vital pathways and “Rivers of Life” (Nadis) pooling into and out of… as such, it is an integral centre of Healing, Health, Personal Growth and Spiritual Unfoldment.
Yoga teaches us many things, amongst the most valuable are how to work with the dis-eases, challenges, and obstacles on our path. The Healing and Growth comes from Within.
When we can see the Heart centre as a 12 petalled lotus flower, with 3 petals opening and unfolding for each of the 4 levels of our Consciousness, we discover the extraordinary potency that lies within the power of our Hearts and radiates with the colour Green.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU WEAR THE COLOUR GREEN TO THIS INTENSIVE.
Each Morning will practice both Dynamic and Restorative Yoga Asana, Various Beneficial and Healing Pranayama, Ancient Mudras and Kriyas that enliven and bring balance and harmony to the Heart, Tantric  Philosophies and Esoteric teachings on the Power of the Colour GREEN. Classes will be accompanied  by Inspiring Music, Poetry, Prose, Creative Visualisations and Meditations, Svadhyaya (Deep Personal Self Enquiry) and practical teachings toward creating more balance, health and healing within oneself.
This Intensive will be crucial for all those of you wishing to bring health, happiness, joy and healing into your lives, and really living from the HEART!!!
I will be bringing in some Valuable AYURVEDIC Gems on how to Balance and Heal oneself Emotionally.
Come give this offering to your HEART AND SOUL!!!
PLEASE BRING A YOGA MAT IF YOU HAVE ONE, A JOURNAL AND A PEN. All else will be provided including useful practical and informative handouts.
Please Note: Numbers are limited, and places fill fast, so early expressions of interest are advised. Contact Andrew to register.

“I am what I am.
In having faith in the beauty within me, I develop trust.
In softness I have strength. In silence I walk with the gods.
In peace I understand myself and the world.

In respecting all living things, I respect myself.
In dedication I honour the courage within me.
In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.
In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.
In freedom I have power. In my individuality, I express the God-Force within me.
In service I give of what I have become.
I am what I am:
Eternal, immortal, universal, and infinite.
And so be it.” Stuart Wilde

INFUSED WITH GREAT GROUNDING POWER… RED IS A COLOUR OF MANIFESTATION, GROUNDING, SECURITY, PRACTICALITY, POTENTIAL, PURPOSE, PROSPERITY, PASSION and PLAY….

COMING FROM A TANTRIC YOGA TRADITION,  colour, the elements and the use of colour in our healing and energetic fields has played an integral and vital role, and over the years I have frequently worked with colour in order to promote and enhance energies in our Pranic fields and lift the vital energy centres of our Being. A sometimes neglected and very often “out of balance” energy centre is the Base chakra, particularly in relation to the other energy centres ( chakras ), particularly in the areas of security, stability, money/ finances, the physical world and most importantly with regards to the KUNDALINI SHAKTI SERPENT which lays dormant awaiting its reuniting and union with its Divine consort SHIVA (Pure Consciousness and Awareness)
It is relationship between the base chakra and the crown (the Chakra of Awakening, Spirituality and Unity ) that is crucial in our evolutionary awakening and when we can discover that we are Spiritual Divine Beings in this Physical manifestation called a “Human Being”, then we can awaken more powerfully to our True Spiritual Purpose (dharma) here on the great Mother Earth and find practical and life affirming ways of expressing that in the world. The colour red ignites and awakens……..

What does the colour red invoke within you ???
Come explore this powerful primary colour…


“The color red is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful energy. Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. It signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination. It is also strong-willed and can give confidence to those who are shy or lacking in will power.
Being the color of physical movement, the color red awakens our physical life force. It is the color of sexuality and can stimulate deeper and more intimate passions in us, such as love and sex on the positive side or revenge and anger on the negative. It is often used to express love, as in Valentine’s Day, however it relates more to sexuality and lust, rather than love – love is usually expressed with pink (A combination of Red and White). Being surrounded by too much of the color red can cause us to become irritated, agitated and ultimately angry. Too little and we become cautious, manipulative and fearful.
In Eastern cultures such as China red is the color for good luck and in the Indian culture it symbolizes purity.” Excerpt from “Colour psychology to empower and Inspire you”
