** TOMORROW **
We are pleased to officially launch Movement For All - PWYC ( pay-what-you-can $5-20 ) outdoor movement sessions commencing at Empire Park ( Bar Beach ) Monday 24th September
All our permits are approved, we are ready to go and session times will run as follows :
Sessions will be co-taught by Louise Savery ( keep an eye out for more about Lou ) and Lyssa Spencer
Our intention with these sessions is to incorporate the key principles of a yoga practice ( breath, strength, flexibility and mindfulness ) with resistance and mobility training to help you to work on areas of weakness in your own body in a wholistic and mindful way
More to come about Lou’s background but needless to say we are very excited to be launching Newcastle’s 1st PWYC Movement classes 💜
“Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination.”
—Brandon Sanderson, the Stormlight Archive
Journey before destination.
We all have dreams and goals. However, we are often too locked onto the outcome of a path to realize we have wandered off of it. We will arrive at our destination in due time, if we diligently follow the path we have set ourselves on. This means being present here and now. What is your destination? Do you remain on the path that will get you there?
Anyone else have tight hamstrings? Here's a gem of a stretch to start gaining some more range of motion in the hamstrings. It may be intense at first so don't push yourself too much and give yourself time after you do this before using your legs for a workout. Tag a friend that has tight hammies😎

Welp, not in a challenge for the weekend, so might as well post a #randomassyogapicsaturday We love Saturday! Play time with the neighborhood hooligans, football, cool fall day (sweatpants and hoodie weather today 😍). Not a huge fan of how dark and cloudy it is, but hey. 🤷♀️ Happy weekend, loveys!
Quick handstand session this morning before Strength Class.
It’s over 2 months I think since I last did any form of handstand training. Unfortunately, something has had to give in favour of other calisthenics training and starting up the running again.
I wasn’t sure at all where I’d be at, but I’m pleased to say I’m pretty much where I left off a couple of months ago! I’ve started doing yoga every morning, and it’s helping to open up my shoulders and hips, and improving my flexibility. That’s the most important thing for now - once I have addressed these weaknesses, I’m certain it will open up so many possibilities for me.
Throwing back to the most awesome workshop with @osteoflexwes and @forma.gst. Absolutely in love with handstands at the moment! As a dancer, I spent many years relying on lower body strength, jumps being my forte 😉 but have been spending more and more time upside down! We generally spend time doing what we do well. This year I have been trying to address my weaknesses and stop bee-lining for the things that feed my ego.
