The Power of Breath in Vinyasa Yoga (Flo Fenton) - Flo Fenton
The breath is a tool that can create enhanced energy, detoxify the system, and balance our physiology, and thus our mental state. When used intelligently within our asana practice, both the effect of the breath, and the asanas are increased. But how aware are you of your breath during your asana practice-and how much importance do you give to the quality of your breath? Which movements or postures are improved with which breath? Join Flo at Spiritfestival 2018 for an exploration into making breath the focus of your practice-and be challenged in a whole new way!

Fear to Freedom - Gwyn Williams - Gwyn Williams
The yearning for freedom and the limitations from fear are found in the entire human condition. One of the most common characteristics of humanhood is fear .
Whilst  we get good at managing fear we are not so steady on becoming free from fear. This session is based on widening your perspective to develop a new relationship with fear , become conscious of all the fear based tendencies held in our posture and the choices we make each day . You will be invited to courageously release the Protective mechanisms we hold in the backs of our bodies ( bladder meridian ) and other little corners of our psyche and physicality to invite a new paradigm based around fluidity and freedom .

Is it possible to be free of fear ?

Ecstatic Embodiment Journey - Rob Weber
A playfully prayerful music and movement journey of liberation, from the stillness of the womb through heights of ecstasy and back again to the deep peace of a heart wide open.

The journey is an uplifting and energetic fusion of yogic practices, vocalization, and movement.  We are carried by a continuum of beautiful live and dj’d music through realms of communal chant, ecstatic dance, and meditative sound healing.  Together we sing our hearts free, dance like nobody’s watching, and settle into an ocean of bliss.  A time to be absolutely sincere in our prayers and completely at ease in our joyful celebration, expect to go deep, fly high, and have a whole lot of sacred fun!

Raio is the resident ecstatic dance DJ at the Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali, where he also leads cacao ceremonies, kirtans, and sound healing journeys.  This workshop is a fusion of his favourite practices into a dynamic and seamless mind-body-spirit activating flow.

Intro to Acro Yoga - Zoe Braithwaite
“You can get to know a person better thru an hour of play than in a year of conversation” , Plato stated, because thru play, we drop our inhibitions and connect to each other on an equal playing field. We learn to trust and feel safe with each other from early on, establishing a foundation for supportive and successful relationships.

This year, at the Byron Spirit Festival we are inviting you to come play in the world of Acroyoga .
Acroyoga is a functional movement practice where by we learn how to work together in challenging and playful ways.
Utilising partner and group exercises the focus on body alignment, core strength and balance brings about strength, stamina and flexibility, inspiring the mind and body to create personal change and improvement.
Thai Massage and therapeutic flying balances the active and dynamic aspects of the practice with nurturing therapy and establishes a pathway for rejuvenation and injury prevention. The group/team atmosphere adds an extremely fun and social element and attracts a community of adventure seekers that understand playing keeps us young at heart.
No experience or partner necessary

Masterclass: Asana is Hatha Yoga — The Non-Dual Tantra (Mark Whitwell) - Mark Whitwell
This workshop is an opportunity to work with one of the most experienced yoga teachers in the world. Asana is Hatha yoga and Hatha yoga is tantra, the non-dual practice of participation in reality. What does this mean? “Ha-tha” equals “strength receiving,” and this simple principle has profound implications for our yoga, our health, and our intimacy with life. The question is, how do we make sure our asana is actually Hatha yoga? Mark explores this, revealing how life is a nurturing force for us all.

Sound waves can move through even the densest matter.  Through sound we can meet and release stored tensions creating space, fluidity, balance and health.
The sound of the Didgeridoo (yidaki) has a deep harmonic resonance connecting us to the earth, our physical bodies and the ancient ones. The crystal bowls, and voice carry higher vibrational frequencies connecting us to higher aspects of ourselves.
Through this guided 90 minute exploration of sound light and movement we journey deep within to refine our harmonic resonant field and release what separates us from our true authentic self.

Light on Moksha - Yoga’s Next Wave - The Path of Knowledge (John Weddepohl) - John Weddepohl
What is Happiness? Self-Awakening? What is the difference between doing a yoga practice and Self Realisation? Understanding the true nature of happiness. Like being on ecstasy 24/7 for the future yogi Bliss ANANDAM is non-stop. Called SATCHITANANDA  - the bliss of ecstasy - this is yoga for the 21st century.

Just as the wave in the ocean is inseparably part of ocean so we are inseparably part of the ocean of joy, love and happiness. Until we learn to see this through the teachings of Self-knowledge - we just don’t know it!

Creating Awe by Travers Ross
Diving into the dream’n, the adventure and curiosity on this planet in out of space (so they say) and giving yourself permission is a task for most.
To be completely and uninterruptedly pulled into the presents to re-develope the childlike desperation with in is to achieve the most out of all. When excuses can be so in the way that we have forgotten how brave we truly were and free of opinion.
To see a tree for the first time again or a human like an alien like you once did. There are no ordinary moments! To be reminded of the abilities your given individually as a human to allow the magic and mind to spark deeper then ever, light that fire and be witnessed burning in your truth. Travers will humbly and confidently facilitate a dance and expressive space to take a lil walk down a scary rabbit hole completely protected by his heart armour for you to be as vunerable and brave as you wish and to return if you wish. Travers will work through movement on relationship reflection work with inside and out. Help clear past stuff and future dreaming doubts for you to manifest towards a positive and glorious AWE-some life, a life that may feel boxed, moved into a life free and open with in that box. You may not even realise but in Travers work it seems to unlock closed doors people have dreamt of opening again that had no idea they were blocking. Come by yourself and be with all! Watch when you leave your reality shift!
