For 30 days, we invite you to practice hot yoga (or Pilates) and dive into cold water immersion. This challenge combines many disciplines into one invigorating month. Throughout the challenge, you’ll attend an invigorating & strengthening workshop each week at your local studio. We believe that you’ll develop physical and mental strength and finish the challenge feeling strong, focussed and empowered.
Book into a daily class at your local studio (consider livestream or yogaholics too) and build momentum with your physical practice. We know that this can be a lot of physical load on the body and can require a lot of energy, so it is recommended that you choose to break up your week with yin classes, Pilates classes and perhaps meditation classes too if you need physical rest. There is also no shame in taking a day off! This challenge is for you so find your own edge and define your own effort level throughout these 30 days.
Expose yourself to the healing benefits of cold therapy, daily. This health practice has gained international fame in recent years for its health benefits. We are joined by Kade Fallins who will share his secrets of mastering cold water immersion and the reason that he believes we should all include this in our daily routines. For this challenge simply
In this workshop, we will explore the preparation, activation and application of how to get ourselves into Headstands, refine our shoulder stand and maybe play a bit with handstands. Inversions are a pillar around which the practice spins as far as they can be utilised to shift the energy of the class and the space when done with accurate anatomical integration as well as effective modification for the individual student. On top of this, when done with poor form, they can be more detrimental than good, so we will explore ways to give you power and strength in the exploration of inversions and explore the king of asana, Headstand!
In this workshop we will explore how to use calisthenics principles to help improve your physical yoga practice. We will be training with ‘parallettes’ which are incredible for strengthening wrists and shoulders as well changing the angles and perspective on yoga postures and movements. Expect to sweat and work hard in this very fun and interactive workshop.
In this workshop we will explore how to use Pilates exercises and principles to improve your yoga practice. Pilates trains the body in certain ways that yoga doesn’t and through this workshop you will be able to feel and understand the benefits of incorporating Pilates in your weekly movement practice. Expect to feel the burn in this fun and interactive workshop.
Learn and apply the biochemistry and biomechanics of functional breathing through principles from The Oxygen Advantage. Through proper breathing we can decrease stress and anxiety, improve health, performance, sleep, digestion, recovery, spinal stability and more! Explore how functional breath can improve life on and off the mat.
An extraordinary opportunity to find your true edge & benefit powerfully in the process. In this workshop we explore the innate capability of the human body, break through fears and inaction, and experience elevated states of performance, clarity & drive. Here we truly come alive. Including a dynamic combination of experiential learning around Breathwork and Cold Exposure, this Workshop will reset and rejuvenate the physical body at the minimum, with the potential for profound inner transformation. By stepping out of our everyday comfort zone and facing the unknown and discomfort, we unlock our true capacity to thrive in this life.
Experienced in the arts of Breathwork & Cold Exposure and engrossed by his own pursuit of physical and psychological self-mastery, Kade Fallins has guided hundreds of people into the deep realms of the mind, along with freezing water. He believes these practices have the ability to enhance anybody’s life by releasing trauma, reprogramming stress and awakening life changing insight, like it did for him. He is an accredited Integrative Health Coach, Master Breathwork Instructor, and a Functional Breathing Coach.
