Conscious Movement and Stillness


November 29 – December 1


Join Sue Everett for a general yoga workshop exploring what it means to live with a practice, how we move with it over a lifetime and how we can sit in stillness with it.

Carrie Owerko In Sydney


March 6- 8, 2020


Moving (and thinking) Outside of The Box

Exploring and increasing our movement and mental capacity and potential can be enlivening, exciting and fun. We can re-awaken curiosity and breathe new life into our practices if we are willing to play again. Our bodies (and brains) are capable of change and growth, and we can continue to learn new things throughout our lives. That can be a bit harder as adults but it is possible if we learn to pay attention and are intrinsically motivated to engage with ourselves and the world in new ways. Giving ourselves permission to play, to step outside of the box–even off of the sticky mat–move and breathe in novel (as well as familiar) ways is not only wonderful for the body but is especially potent for the brain. As we age, play (and learning new things) becomes even more essential for brain and body health, and overall well-being.

In this workshop we will work playfully, progressively, and intelligently while exploring how yoga, mindful movement and breath work can expand our ideas of what is possible. When we say yes to play, we say yes to continuous learning. Our practice can indeed become more joyful, more of a dance!

Carrie Owerko


Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate

Iyengar teaching credential and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous and in-depth studies with her teacher, Patricia Walden.

Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, performed at NYC’s City Center during BKS Iyengar’s Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005.Before studying yoga, Carrie worked as a Movement Analyst after having completed her studies at The Laban Institute in NYC. She studied theatre and dance in college and has spent years exploring human movement, meaning and communication.

Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
