“Regina is a truly inspiring yoga teacher. All of her classes and workshops are magical. Leave your drama at the door and immerse yourself in your practise. I have learnt so much from her and would not hesitate to recommend her classes and work shops. She is a true Yogi in every sense.” ~ Amanda
Come and join Regina Kerschbaumer for three hours of relaxing Yin Yoga while she shares her warm teaching style and extensive knowledge and expertise of the principles of Yin Yoga. All workshops are suitable for teachers wanting to learn about this practice as well as students of any level – even those new to yoga who want to try a more gentle approach to poses. Regina trained directly with Paul Grilley (the “founder” of Yin Yoga) since 2006 and regularly updates her knowledge of this transformational style of yoga through annual trainings with Paul & Suzee Grilley and Sarah & Ty Powers. The workshops also incorporate her extensive knowledge of anatomy, meditation and mindfulness gained in teaching yoga for over the years.
Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body: the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. The long held, passive nature of the Yin postures give time for releasing tightness within the joints, but also for a deeper journey to unfold into the meditative aspects of yoga – a bridge to living life mindfully.
Immerse yourself in the practice and theory of Yin Yoga, Meridian Lines, Chakras and Mindfulness while we analyse, observe and practice the yin postures in depth.
Suitable for yoga practitioners of any level. Especially for students and teachers who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the principles of Yin Yoga.
DATES FOR 2018:
25 August: Yin Yoga on the Earth Element – Late Summer Gratitude:
The element of Earth relates to late summer – a time to cleanse and support our Stomach and Spleen Meridians. The Earth is the balance of the yin and yang, the feminine and the masculine principles and strives to bring harmony, grounding and stability.
An opportunity to explore and balance the Earth Meridians during a Mindful Yin Practice while you reflect with gratitude on the past season. 3 hours to mindfully ‘chill-out’ while you reset and re-balance every level of your being. You will feel grounded, centred and able to digest the world from a better place, not only physically and also emotionally.
29 September: Yin Yoga & Mindfulness:
Gain a deeper understanding of the 4 foundations of Mindfulness during this workshop and learn how to apply it to your yoga practice.
The beauty of mindfulness training is that it will also transcends into your everyday life. Once you learn the basics of the practice, you can apply it in any yoga class and all daily activities. It will showed up in your life as increased patience, kindness, curiosity, the potential for a letting-go of agenda, the understanding of craving and attachment, the acceptance of the daily ‘suffering’ and the recognition of basic goodness in yourself and others.

10 November: Autumn Appreciation – Yin Yoga on the Metal Element
An inward journey…Autumn is a time of transformation – the end of the growing season – a falling away of outer-directed energy. A time of the year which encourages us to remember that life is a continuous cycle of taking in and letting go. This will be a rejuvenating and relaxing Yin yoga session to nourish, stimulate and balance physical, emotional and energetic systems – especially beneficial to anyone who finds this time of the year difficult.
Yin yoga serves as a platform for self – enquiry. During this 3 HOUR workshop we will turn inward, explore the Lung & Large Intestine meridians and observe the differences between one side of the body and the other.
29 December – End of 2018:
Rather than setting goals and planning what we want to achieve next year, let’s decided to first spend time in gratitude. Join me for 3 hours of deep, relaxing and rejuvenating Yin Yoga while we reflect in mindfulness with gratitude on the past year while we focus on rejuvenating the body’s Water Element – key importance for keeping healthy and vibrant during the colder winter months. Restorative yin yoga postures to improve your flexibility, deeply unwind inner tensions and balancing the Urinary Bladder and Kidney chi.
“Gratitude is such a simple way to access appreciation in your life. It can switch the mundane to the magical. To be grateful for all – good and bad – helps to unlock the heart. Cultivating gratitude increases wellbeing, happiness, energy, optimism and empathy.”
Prepare to become introspective as we hibernate the end of the workshop you will feel deeply nourished, restored, inspired and full of gratitude. Yin yoga postures and sequences specifically chosen for bringing in more light during the darker months of the year.
