Past Workshops in 2019

Yoga Fundraiser for Women's Cancer Research - Saturday 30th November, 10am - 12pm

We raised just over $1,300 from this fundraiser event in November 2019. THANK YOU ALL WHO PARTICIPATED.

We hosted a Yoga for Cancer Fundraiser event to help all Victorian women affected by cancer.

Every year, 15,700 Victorian women are diagnosed cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, the good news is that the rate of women dying from cancer is declining. Throughout the last decade, the rate has been consistently decreasing by 1.5% per year. This is thanks to earlier detection of cancers through screening, reductions in tobacco use, and improvements in treatment.

At leaf+bird wellbeing and Thompsons Road Physiotherapy we are passionate about saving even more lives, so we helped Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Yoga Fundraising Morning. It was a full-house attendance, and was a success thanks to the generous yogis who came along and donated to the cause.

aromaZen workshop - Next dates TBA

Presented by our yoga teacher, Lisa Ray.

aromaZen is a practice that is suitable for people at all stages of meditation. It is a beautiful guided journey, to sit with inner peace and deep rest, to allow you to build inner strength and a deeper insight into your true self.

Participants are guided through a three part self healing journey, in a beautiful environment that supports you in feeling relaxed and inspired.

The session progresses through an internal visual contemplation of the 7 chakras, using the inhalation and application of 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils and deep breath. A Yoga Nidra full body relaxation follows, and then we close our meditation journey in a soothing sound bath of harmonic chimes, drums, and high vibrational crystal singing bowls, to uplift the spirit and soothe the soul.

This workshop runs most months. Email us to enquire about the next scheduled session.
