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 ?

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.

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.
