Erica is a senior AcroYoga teacher having done her first AcroYoga Teacher Training in 2008 with co-founders Jason Nemer & Jenny Sauer-Klein and her level II training in 2012.

Bio

Tiffany sought out yoga as a way to rediscover movement and a connection to her body after moving away from dancing and as a counterbalance to the stresses of her busy events job.
The impact was immediate and bought a renewed sense of energy, vigour and curiosity into her life. The transformational power of the spiritual, physical and emotional practice compelled her to take her 200 YTT so she could begin to share this magic with others.

Breathwork practice for everyday workshop with Sjaan Van de Langenberg

An intentional daily breathing practice can set the tone for your whole day ahead.
Your next moment and your life.

The health benefits of breathing fully and optimally are boundless.
Breathwork can have a positive impact on both our mental and physical wellbeing, helping to balance your nervous system and bringing nourishment and fresh energy to all the organs and tissue of your body.

During this workshop we will start with some gentle movement and stretches to open the sides of the body, the intercostal muscles, ribcage, pelvis and hips to encourage deeper fuller breathing.
Sjaan will then guide you through some simple and effective breathing patterns to increase our lungs capacity and encourage the range of our diaphragm.
When our breathing is fuller and deeper the movement of our diaphragm gently massages our internal organs and invites an optimal flow of vitality.
We will include some kundalini based breathing patterns to either calm or re-energise.
These practices will be simple and effective enough to add to your own daily routine.

With the help of these practices when we are able to bring our nervous system into balance and feel healthier, it can have a profound effect on our levels of creativity and connections.

With a breath practice we can inquire into our inner landscape, notice our minds’ activity and how they co-create and shape our lives.
Breathing invites life into our bodies, it connects the outside with the inside.
It is the thread that sews together the seemingly separate.
Bringing awareness to the breath can help bring us right into the present moment.
Where we ultimately can feel and recognise our true nature, as not any one situation, circumstances, sensation or emotion but as pure awareness and being.,
