Soothe your body with a combination of two self-care practices from Sydney experts
If the adjustment to your recently more couchbound lifestyle has left you a little sore and creaky, it could be time to show your body some tender loving care, gentle stretching, and maybe even some self-acupressure.
Two self-care practices meet in one online workshop with You, Me & We, a “wellness DJ set” led by Sydney based yoga instructor Tara D’Cruz-Noble and massage and acupressure therapist Jessie Whittaker of The Calmm, an intuitive massage therapy clinic offering treatments in Bondi, Surry Hills and the Northern Beaches. With similar principles to acupuncture, acupressure is an alternative medicine technique that applies pressure to acupuncture points to clear blockages in the body.
The one and a half hour class involves a guided yoga flow designed to open those closed off places that will warm you up for some guided self-acupressure, wrapping up with a savasana and a sacred meditative practice known as yoga nidra. You’ll even receive a curated playlist to play during your practice if you wish.
This fortnightly Sunday morning class is open to all, the next edition is a Mother’s Day special (that isn’t just for mothers) from 9.30 – 11am on Sunday, May 10, that's all about grounding yourself in these upside-down times.
The class is $25 a session, and you can choose to participate every fortnight or on a casual basis. All you need is access to Zoom, a mat or towel, an uncluttered space, and pillows and blankets. Head to Tara’s website to book in and check out her other online offerings.
