ABOUT THIS EVENT
This 5 week course offers an introduction to the Vishrant yoga postures and relaxation techniques used in classes at Restful Waters. There is a strong focus on building awareness and trust for the needs of your own body.
Vishrant Yoga is a restorative and meditative yoga practice designed to return us home to ourselves, to live in balance and equanimity.
Using the breath, the body and subtle queues to encourage restfulness and letting go, each week experienced yoga teacher Prema will guide you through specific parts of the body including hips, legs, lower back, stomach and heart. Each class will include teachings of self-acceptance, openness and surrender inspired by Buddhist teacher, Prem Vishrant.
In the practice, restful postures are held for longer periods to allow the body’s ability to open naturally and release resistance slowly and gently bring about a restoring balance. Vishrant Yoga is a passive form of yoga and can support healing and rejuvenation.
In this amazing introductory course, you’ll learn how to use yoga props to support your practice and the different variations available in each pose, so you can tailor your own practice to suit your body.
Here are some kind words from previous attendees:

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Through intention, meditation, pranayama and asana, students leave Prema’s classes feeling uplifted, refreshed, relaxed and with a sense of stillness and peace. She provides a sanctuary and teaches in a way that is gentle to allow for slowing down while still providing a challenge for those wishing to deepen their practice. Prema brings a sense of humbleness, softness, aliveness and deep care into her classes with one clear message: let go, let go, let go.
She practices and teaches Vishrant Yoga, Hatha, Yin which include longer holds and a slower pace and a gentle reminder to come back to the breath, as well as Yoga Nidra and Meditation to help cultivate stillness, allow for emotional healing, motivate self-acceptance, feel nourished and encourage relaxation.
Prema has taken the Bodhisattva Vows so her life is dedicated to service, truth and heart. She shares her own life experiences and Buddhist teachings throughout classes to provoke contemplation and inspiration.
Throughout her journey, Prema has completed over 500hr of yoga teacher training specialising in Yin, Hatha, Restorative, Yoga Nidra, Vinyasa Flow and Prenatal yoga. She also holds a Certificate in Health Coaching with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and is currently studying a Diploma in Counselling with Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors. Additionally, she has spent the last 7 years involved in personal development, group work and exploring the workings of the mind.
