Transformational Power Yoga Flow Foundations Course for Waiheke Island!

8 Jul

I’m thrilled to announce my Transformational Power Yoga Flow Foundations Course for Waiheke Island!

This course is for those who want to get more out of LIFE!

Power through winter, gain more energy, focus, strength, build muscle and lose unwanted kilos with a 4 week course that will teach you a basic 30-40 minute power-flow sequence you can do in the comfort of your own home.

Rocky Bay Hall
Waiheke Island

Thursday 6th of August
Thursday 13th of August
Thursday 20th of August
Thursday 27th of August

6.30pm – 8pm


Let’s face it. It’s hard to get out to a yoga class especially on Waiheke, with kids and family commitments. We all know yoga has the ability to bring incredible benefits to our mind, body and souls, yet one of the biggest challenges lies in developing and maintaining a home practice.

A regular power-flow practice can not only bring more zen into your life, but it can also help tone and detox your body while targeting trouble areas like leg and back tension; it also firms the glutes, core and arms, AND after just 30 – 40 minutes you will break a sweat and feel like you’ve had a decent work out.

I teach a modern style of yoga that blends exercise physiology making it a safer, and sometimes a more comfortable practice! It’s a common sense approach to ancient yoga teachings. Our western bodies are different from typical Indian yoga folk, so we aim to work from the basis of maintaining a neutral spine, and softening other parts of the body until we can build the strength and balance to take the practice further. It’s also about honouring the unique physical make up of each individual, so this practice can be for every-BODY.

It’s time to Move, Breathe & Sweat, and of course HAVE FUN!

[NOTE – It is not essential to have previous yoga experience to participate in this course, but a basic knowledge and understanding of yoga would be of benefit]

What will happen on the course?
Each week we will flow through the sequence to a vibing playlist, then we will use the remainder of the time to workshop each posture with correct alignment, also focusing on transitions in and out of each pose.

I will also include mini lectures on;
What is Power Yoga?
The Bandha – A Deepening of Awareness
Yoga and the Spine – The Control Centre of the Body
Ujjayi – The Breath of Victory (Vinyasa = breath with movement)

Each student will receive;
The Yoga Sequence hand out – In Sanskrit and English translation
A hand out on The Bandhas
A hand out on Yoga & the Spine
A hand out on Ujjayi – The Breath of Victory
A Drop Shadows Yoga Flow Mix Tape from RIA

What the people had to say….

“It was such a divine experience. It was the perfect harmony of Yoga, Dance, Rhythm, Movement, Breath and Flow. The amazing Kara-Leah Grant took us on a journey where you were able to completely let go of the outside world and blissfully melt into the present moment – energy flowing through the body and upwards – connected to Self, connected to each other, connected to the Earth, on an all natural high, collectively pulsing and vibing to the raddest tribal beats and tunes by the music Goddess Le Rire . I loved every moment and left totally buzzing and filled with Prana ♡”  – Rebecca White

“WOW what an incredibly freeing and wild experience we had Friday night at the Grey lynn community centre. Tribal bass , yoga and dancing are a few of my favourite things and to have them combined and facilitated by the beautiful powerhouse that is Karah-Leah Grant was just plain epic! Our energies were soaring afterward – full frothing! xxx” – Tara Cornelia

“What can I say apart from Wow!! It was just a great harmony between yoga, dance and flow!! It made me feel so alive, by the end of it I was buzzing naturally!! What I loved so much was how we were just practicing great yoga lead by Kara-Leah and then it just flowed into beautiful dance with epic music from RIA… ( really amazing tunes ). The transition of yoga to dance flowed so smoothly I didn’t know I was actually already dancing and really feeling the music!!
Thanks so much.,,, I really loved the vibe and can’t wait for more!! I’m totally hooked!!” – Laurie Flint

“I have to say – practicing yoga to music is a divine experience, especially when the selection has been made by someone who knows what they are doing. It was that much easier to let go of the outside world and melt into the breath, the moment, the body, the rhythm. As the energy spiralled up and up toward the peak of ecstatic movement, flinging ourselves around while maintaining connection to the earth and to each other, was a new kind of high that I haven’t experienced before. I am well-versed in losing myself to music, to my body – but Kara-Leah led us down a path that was entirely fresh – the key was in the connection. We danced while looking each other in the eyes. We moved outward and inward, and it felt beyond good to be so loose and wild while pulsing only to the inner fire – no other stimulants necessary (we-ell, except for the complementary glass of ayurvedic go-go juice handed out at the start).
My face hurt from grinning so hard. My body was sparked up with a healthy dose of prana. I left on a total high, and even thinking back on it gives me a buzz.
Thanks once again, you two sparkling beauties, for inviting us in and leading us along such a vivid journey.” Hannah Schenter

We were blessed to meet Ramin Krause, who is not only an exceptional photographer, but he’s also an entrepreneurial traveler currently moving around NZ, sleeping in a hammock and documenting his journey along the way. He was so keen on Wildlings, he hitched in from out west, and rocked up to the gig with a giant pack and camera in hand. He also joined us on our adventure to Waiheke. Ramin Krause, born 1994, is a photographer from Cologne, Germany that currently lives with Hippies in New Zealand.

Check out his incredible work HERE. Thank you Noodles!

VOIIAGE is a crowd funding campaign that will see him hitchhike all the way back to Germany, doing his unique style of multimedia blogging along the way. VIEW HERE
