About the class

Join Jambo to enjoy a full weekend of working and playing with breath and balance.

There are numerous yoga practices that are often overlooked, including pranayama and meditation. With the ongoing growth of yoga, it's possible to become uncertain about the true essence of the practice. Have you ever felt anxious about your place within the yoga community throughout these changes?

There will be a range of workshops and play-shops available to delve into the newly developed branches of yoga. These sessions will allow us to become more self-assured and empowered as yoga practitioners.

* SAT AM : Invigorating inversions

We will be delving into the therapeutic benefits of inversions such as forearm balance and handstands.

By familiarising ourselves with various progressions, we will be able to customize our inversion practice to meet our unique needs and aspirations. Furthermore, gaining knowledge about the natural alignment of the human body within inversions can help identify areas where we may not be stacking our bodies properly.

This play-shop offers a playful and relaxed environment for refining your handstand techniques.

* SAT PM : Breath Work and Pranayama

Explore the difference between 'Breath Work' and 'Pranayama'.

Although 'Breath Work' is a translation from Chinese 'Qi Gong', both practices have roots in traditional yoga and pranayama. As a yoga practitioner, it is important to understand that we are essentially breath work practitioners due to the nature of pranayama practices.

This class will focus on two pranayama sequences that have been studied for their benefits, as described in traditional yoga texts. The first sequence has been shown to aid in managing anxiety and improving concentration. The second sequence is particularly popular among those who practice manifestation work.

* SUN AM : Back bends

Are you interested in incorporating the therapeutic benefits of back bends into your practice?

In this class, we'll explore the academic debate between back bends and power poses as methods for enhancing self-esteem and accessing untapped energy.

During the workshop, we'll focus on mini back bends that offer an invigorating experience.

* SUN PM : Mantra chanting, soul-stirring songs, and delectable cake.

Join us for an invigorating and delightful event featuring mantra chanting, soul-stirring songs, and delectable cake.

This is the perfect amalgamation of a celebrity-style spiritual practice with a fun-filled party atmosphere.

Revel in the power of mantras that invigorate the soul and songs that uplift the mood.

Your participation is highly anticipated, and we kindly request that you bring your favourite instruments and cake to share with the group.
