Yoga In The Air
Aerial Yoga Workshop
Saturday, February 16th at 5.30 to 7.30 pm
Come fly, Yogis! Join Winnie Au at Little Mandarin Yoga for a 2-hour aerial yoga workshop.
Aerial Yoga is a combination of traditional yoga postures with skilful manoeuvres using the support of fabric in space. Come learn to move in the air with confidence and grace as you gain strength in a supportive environment. Learn about the benefits of Aerial Yoga here, or read our blog.
In this workshop you will:
Enjoy the benefits of supported inversions on the hammock - relieving compression in the spine and joints;
Learn to safely move in and out of both simple supported inversions and more complex postures;
Build upper body and core strength, flexibility and coordination as we manoeuvre through the hammock;
Deepen the awareness and connection to the body by aligning intelligently to the natural design of the human body;
Have fun balancing between controlled and relaxed movements;
Get to know yourself on a deeper level, whilst observing, exploring and embracing your inner child (and fear) through the practice.
All levels are welcome! Whether you are looking to give aerial yoga a try, or are wanting to deepen your regular practice, all you need is to come with a fresh mind, be ready to explore and have fun!

Inverted Perspective Workshop | Phil Low
Sunday Feb 18th 3pm to 5pm
Have you ever been interested in incorporating inversions into your practice? Whether you are new to inversions or are familiar with it, come join Phil Low at Little Mandarin Yoga for a 2.5 hour inversion workshop filled with fun and laughter!
Inversions can be daunting but it can be made more accessible to anyone if we just change our approach to it. “Inverted Perspective” will not only change your perspective (literally by going upside down!) but will also give you the tools to change the way you think about inversions to make it more accessible and fun to begin incorporating them into your daily practice.
In this workshop:
Explore inversion preparation poses and their relationship to inverting;
Learn the fundamentals of inverting;
Build strength, flexibility and confidence to get upside down safely whilst having fun in the process;
Connect to poses in a flow to absorb the shapes needed to invert, without having to overthink each pose;
Create the awareness and confidence to prepare to take flight into handstand, headstand and forearm balance; and
Find the most effective ways to finding stability and balance in order to use the tools needed to add inversions into your own practice.
All levels of yogis are welcome! All that is needed is a little curiosity and willingness to explore the possibilities. Let’s approach each step with a playful attitude and acknowledge where we each are in our individual yoga journey.
Mats and props will be provided. Complimentary post-workshop nourishment from FINN Cold Press Juices and gifts will also be available!
