Cellulite tips!

Ten Best Cellulite Tips  – Your Essential Questionnaire!

Now a Yoga Trainer and Wellness Consultant, I am often asked about ‘toning’ for cellulite. Having worked in Paris in some of the oldest and most traditional Thalassotherapie spas, la cellulite was something spoken about in the hushed sanctums of the treatment rooms.  Cellulite, for most women, will not respond to the modern concept of ‘toning’. Is it ok that I share that blunt truth with you straight up? If you would like to know what we know as professionals in health and beauty, read more for extra info.

Moving back into working for Modelling Agencies [diet and exercise], then into Kinesiology, natural therapies, nutrition, emotions and relationships work, and ultimately Yoga, I have coached hundreds of women – and some men- in and around the topic of cellulite from both a beauty and a health viewpoint. Altogether,  I have been around women and cellulite tips and techniques for over 35 years now!  Ssshhh!! That’s me a few months ago in the photo below.

Cellulite is all about Health!  - The Personalised Approach

There are many reasons for cellulite appearing and the reasons for it are multi-faceted. That means that the ways to deal with it are muli-facedted as well. If you are looking for cellulite solutions and they haven’t worked for you, imagine that you need 12 pieces to the puzzle, and you have perhaps 8 of them, but the outcome will kick in when you find those last 4 pieces. [This is where my Health Coaching/ Lifestyle Coaching works with you individually, and specifically...just saying!].  I will share my Most Popular 10 Best Cellulite Tips Questionnaire below.  These are the essential questions that any solution needs to address. With this answered, you can review your lifestyle and body specifically.

Your approach needs to be ‘inside’ and ‘out’. That means you need to look into the cause of your cellulite as much as you look into its removal. You will need to understand cause and effect ‘what goes in’, and how this influences ‘what goes out’…or ‘stays’…on the body.

Ten Best Cellulite Tips Questionnaire

  1. Are you overweight?
  2. Assuming your cellulite is on your thighs, Is your lower body bigger [proportionally] than your upper body?
  3. Do you move your hips joint area around [for example, in yoga poses for hips]?
  4. Are you adequately hydrated – with clean, pure hydration?
  5. Yes! We have to go there – how are your bowel movements…Every meal…..daily…..?
  6. How would you rate your stress levels? High. Medium….Constant…
  7. Emotions – do you get the chance to express your emotions in a way they are listened to, and validated?
  8. Anger and resentment – specifically looking at these two. Is there anger/ resentment in your life?
  9. Do you move your body – as in, some form of gentle exercise…I’ll suggest yoga because I am biased…or other!
  10. If you look at your diet, how much lifeforce and oxygen does your diet provide you? You could ask yourself how much you get greens into your diet, how processed your foods are, how much fibre you get…
  11. BONUS! – Are you getting enough sleep?

Now what?….Free Tips to overcome Cellulite

Each of the Ten Questions leads to a strategy to improve your Health, Vitality, How you Feel, and How you Look. If you answer the questionnaire and would more information, then comment below with your answer, or email me at mail@susanwanmer.com.au and I will post answers for you. I am quite happy to post a 10 Part Free Series on Cellulite if you are interested.

The more specific you are in your comment or email, the more I will tailor the post for your particular situation – the better answers you get. Remember, comment below, or send me an email. [privacy protected - I will not publish your name, photo, or details, promised]

Visioning Workshop

This Saturday 24th January 2014 : Design your Life.

Visioning Workshop – Oh, but so much more!

Visualisations, Meditation for Intention, Morphic fields, The Seven Levels of Change, How to bring you Vision and your Physiology together to create and manifest effotless, exciting, and sustainable changes.

What's YOUR Vision?
What’s YOUR Vision
Hello, I’m Susan Wanmer and for this event, I am drawing on over 20 years experience with Kinesiology, yoga, meditation, and personal development training in a unique workshop for embodied visioning. Thousands of my clients have used some or all of these techniques to move forward towards freedom in their desired 8 areas of life and wellbeing.

Choose the medium where you would like to capture your Visioning. Bring any magazines, scissors, pens, textas, glue and paper or chart paper with you to create a Vision Board. If you don’t have any, I have lots of A3 and A4 paper for you and mags as well. If you are adventurous and prefer computer generated images, bring your laptop and connection and you can start your own Vision Board or Vision Movie online.

More than vision boarding which you could do on your own, my specialty is grounding you into reality, so what you will really gain from the workshop is the Embodiment of what is Authentic and Possible for you in Creating a Life of Choice – Your Life by Design.
Did I mention that my bigger specialty is to bring you over the hurdles that might block your vision, or hold you back? That is where my expert facilitation and 30 years experience come in – and why my clients and workshoppers get such great results!

Master Visioning Workshop. EMBODY and create a Life by Design.

Susan Wanmer guides you on a Visioning Workshop

where you will embody, and create results.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Choose the medium where you would like to capture your Visioning. Bring any magazines, scissors, pens, textas, glue and paper or chart paper with you to create a Vision Board. If you don’t have any, I have lots of A3 and A4 paper for you and mags as well.
  • If you are adventurous and prefer computer generated images, bring your laptop and connection and you can start your own Vision Board or Vision Movie online. However, more than creating a Vision Board to record your mission, my specialty is grounding you into reality.

What you will really gain from the workshop is the Embodiment of what is Authentic and Possible for you in Creating a Life of Choice – Your Life by Design – Effortlessly.

Did I mention that my bigger specialty is to bring you over the hurdles that might block your vision, or hold you back? That is where my expert facilitation and 30 years experience come in – and why my clients and workshoppers get such great results!

  • Wear comfy clothes as we will be sitting on the floor cutting out pics and moving around for the embodiment and willingness to move forward exercises.Bring a folder or notepad also for capturing snippets of valuable information and notes.
  • You are welcome to bring snacks, hot or cold drinks if you need. There is boiling water and kitchenette at my Studio and a sort of coffee shop upstairs, Fundies and other coffee shops up the road at Paddington

Masterclass: Teach Corporate and Diverse Groups with Ease!

Masterclass: Teach Corporate and Diverse Groups with Ease!

How to Teach Groups that are outside of your peer group. Groups love, and respond well to, facilitators who are confident and heart-centered. They also need to see that you are real. Authenticity is important. But what do you do if you are authentically shy, not sure about your gig, or don’t know the venue or the group?

Often Corporate work will provide groups for you with less-than-ideal Studio settings and it is up to you to provide the experience of the YOGA you know and love admidst the photocopier noise, people arriving late and under flouros.

Perhaps you have been asked to run a workshop or a higher-paying wellness initiative that will bring people into your Yoga who have all sorts of body shapes, sizes and issues.  You have approximately 7 minutes to establish rapport that will determine if they return, or joke about it over dinner party chit-chat.

Do you want to see that “I Love Yoga” look on people’s faces…[you know that look don't you - a sort of smile, glow and shiny happy eyes]. Do you want to know that you could create that look through the experience you offer even if you step outside of people who are regulars at Yoga.

There are a myriad of techniques which combine to make you a successful and safe group facilitator.

  • Your Presence
  • Eye Contact
  • Posture
  • Pace
  • Humour
  • Confidence
  • Languaging
  • Articulation [that's words, not joints!]
  • Volume and speed of your Vocal Cues
  • Learning Styles
  • Hand Gestures [that's instructing, not mudras!]
  • How you Guage Trust
  • How you Guage Ability
  • Strategies for Speedy Group Risk Management
  • How you Meet Needs of Attendees – spoken and unspoken and much much more.

Are you prepared to be challenged? Are you prepared to have fun stepping up and stepping out of your usual comfort zone and into a more professional way of teaching and instructing.

Why do you think that someone like the talk show host “Ellen” can come on stage and barely move her hips and the crowd goes nuts, and yet a contestant on Australia’s Got Talent can dance her butt off and no-one reacts – it is all about Presence, Confidence and Connection.

Two One-Day Masterclasses combine to form a Weekend of Hands-on Training and Mentoring for Yoga Teachers/ Pilates and movement instructors. This is a rubber-meets-the-road chance to improve your skills and receive feedback and try again until you reach a new level. Safe, fun, challenging, growth-enhancing for you. Good facilitation is about putting yourself completely aside to be there for your participants. It is the true nature of ‘service’ :)

Radically Limited Numbers: It is only open to a small group so we have a chance to work you personally and you can observe others.

This is not about yoga technique, but abut connecting to the diverse people you share yoga (or other movement ) with. I will, however, work on your technique as there are definite ways to tweak your technique for the general public to provide low-risk quality yoga. I can work with you irrespective of your style of yoga or how long you have been teaching. Thanks to my long association with Simon Borg-Olivier and his wealth of knowledge, there are certain key principles that apply to all human bodies, and I can pass some of the fundamentals on to you.

These masterclasses are open to anyone just recently qualified, thinking about starting [great way to start], or if you are a veteran. Not based on how ‘good’ your yoga is, how flexible you are, or how long you have been doing yoga, this is based on how much of a good time can you give your group.

Details:

Please Contact us for the next dates. Masterclasses are a boost in your own skills, and essential to become part of the Susan Wanmer Team of Wellness Instructors – yoga, pilates,  movement of all types.

New Years Resolutions that work 2012

New Years Resolutions that work 2012

Location: 47 Castlemaine St Milton, Brisbane [Work Life Balance]

New Year. New Resolutions. Get Real. Get authentic, and honour yourself by plotting 2012 from your heart – not the head!*

New Year's Resolutions that work!
New Year’s Resolutions that work!

This Saturday,  7 January, I am combining my Goal/ Vision skills training, with Clare Apelt, Masters in Creative Arts Therapies amongst many other body/mind talents. Clare is facilitating a workshop with me this Saturday 7 January, where she is drawing all her creativity into a New Year Visioning “Playshop”. In putting this together, we decided it would be fun to really enter the journey of the heart, to follow the heart’s compass, and that lead to thinking about Treasures of the Heart….and, well….it had to end up with a personal Treasure Map/ Pirate theme, didn’t it!

While the year is still fresh, get clear about what you don’t want to drag along with you, get clear about what you LOVE and want more of, and let Clare guide you using experiential exercises, drawing, writing, small group exploration, and yoga to create your own personal Treasure Map, plotted for the Year 2012. Yes – you really take home a Map of your year!

Bookings and enquiries through (me) Susan on 3369 7404, 0410 570 41, or email. So we have lots of space for the group on this afternoon of Intention Setting and Visioning, we are using my Milton Yoga Studio plus the 2 seminar rooms of WorkLifeBalance [same building for those who know the Yoga Studio]. You will have time for personal reflection, plus access to your two expert facilitators. *I will also share with you the brain science of what heart is, what head is, and why you need both working as a synchronised team for true health and progress.

If you want to read the post on the WorkLifeBalance site, click here: http://worklifebalance1.com/blog/2012/01/02/new-year-visioning-playful-workshop/

Warm regards, and PS, we have made it very inexpensive and offer a discount if you bring a friend, because the more we are, the more we play – you’ll get to create the vision and the goals for you personally that you can convert to an action plan, but not in a dry format!

End Time: 17:00

Cost: $65 or $99 for couples

Yoga Teaching and Fitness

Yoga Teaching and Fitness

There was a homework question about the 7 safety assessments. They are completely common sense as we won’t be taking people’s blood pressure or measuring BMI body mass index.

If you look at your  Anatomy  & Physiology text page 355 12.5 there is the simple list for you which I have recopied below.  

 Observe the person’s weight, skin colour, mobility etc. Train your eye to observe people as they approach you. Do they sit down heavily? Do they grimace or wince in poses? Do you detect cigarette smoke smell? Is their face pale or red when they exert themselves?SS

Yoga Teaching and Fitness Factors to be considered include:

i) Lifestyle
ii) Blood pressure
iii) Resting heart rate
iv) Amount of body fat
v) Aerobic capacity
vi) Flexibility
vii) Muscle strength

You need to keep these in mind when you are learning, because if the others in your group are similar to you, you won’t think of how to construct the poses for people who are at the more extreme end of the above list.

Static poses and dynamic poses will bring different variables to this mix. Dynamic poses may require more strength, and cardio-vascular fitness. Inversions will affect blood pressure – so will raising the arms and standing up. Be aware of your group and ready to adapt your poses or change direction if need be.

Also look at point 12.4 in your READING A & P Set Text Simon Borg-Oliver

[ To buy go to:     http://anatomy.yogasynergy.com/book/friend/wanmer  ]   page 355, which has another list to keep in mind. This one relates more to injury, loss of muscle tone, loss of range of movement in joints. I have a client with MS at the moment and we check this out to see her functional movement before her monthly YPT sessions.

Looking forward to your comments. ?

Learn yoga chakra workshop

Location: Milton Yoga Studio is inside ‘Work Life Balance1′ which is at 1/47 Castlemaine St Milton
Description: A lovely afternoon of Nei Qi Gong indulgence at my Yoga Studio in Milton. Ravikesh Singh Singh and Nei Qi-Gong teacher Karen Reid present an afternoon featuring Indo-Japanese improvisation, meditation, traditional Indian music and authentic Indian nibbles for an unbelievably low price!

Just $12 each, or $20 a couple. The seminar will provide a variety of demonstrations where everyone can safely explore the chakra/ s most consciously available to them.
As well as interactive demos, you will learn explanations on how we can access organic support to further develop our energetic resources.
The feedback so far has been that its easily understood and not in the least mystifying.

Karen writes “in explaining these things, I’ve found unless we have an experience of this type of exercise it is difficult to go on words alone – hence Nei Qi Gong is hardly ever mentioned by Masters writing about Qi Gong”.

Easy on street parking for this event on Saturday 25 June 2011. Bring a friend – we supply everything else. Enquiries are welcome and bookings are essential for catering.

Yoga Teaching update 2011

learn to be a yoga teacher in Brisbane, with Susan Wanmer

Yoga trainees…..

Yoga Teacher Training update 2011 in case you are wondering about my silence. I have 4 areas of professional development that I was working on last year, but the flood has wiped out my free time and free thinking. I won’t hide the fact that not the flood, but the months of uncertainty and loss of control following have had a very big effect on me.

 I have been staying true to my feminine and taking small steps as I am able. The Studio itself has been open for a few weeks now, and this week I ran my first Yoga BootCamp for the year as I finally felt strength enough physically, mentally and emotionally, to take on a group again.

 This period of time has driven me back to basics. For months, my body has ached from the lack of movement combined with stress. I could feel the muscles, fascia and everything tightening due to stress and was unable to do more to prevent it. I was able to mentally note my body adapting to the new lifestyle, but couldn’t do more physical asanas. I was able to go back to my yamas and niyamas and observe how I responded. I was able to meditate and give myself strength and stability in the face of uncertainty and chaos. I was able to do joint mobilisation and subtle movements for the spine and whole body which kept me afloat.

 Yoga Bootcamp heading into week two, I feel strong, buoyant, and able to schedule around my PD commitments interstate. I have also been reworking the Yoga Teacher Training manual, competencies, and structure ever since I’ve had the new computer.

 So there hasn’t been much apparent movement, but lots happening under the surface! Stay tuned – or send me a smessage as I am rebuilding all my records from scratch.

I have set myself the goal of having sme of the Yoga Teacher Training modules scheduled bythe new financial year 0from 1 July). Itrust you are well, and have received my email about the Tuesday and Thursday class opportunities at Milton Yoga Studio.

Yoga of Relationships “Yoga Bliss”

Yoga of Relationships “Yoga Bliss”

This beautiful weekend is held December 2010, and will run again early in 2012. Please ask for the dates for 2012 if you missed 2010.

This weekend touches your toe into the more mystical elements of yoga and tantra. Ultimately, yoga is about connection – to self and to the greater picture of the universe. Over two days we will explore relationships using yoga poses to make the connections tangible, moving into the breath connection to self and then self to others. Yoga, used in a balanced way is a template for deep and intimate relationships. Come and learn to teach, or come and learn how to make your own body healthy, and to connect in a calm, serene life.

I am often asked what sort of yoga I teach, and often critised by people for being too physical in my approach, or too spiritual depending on the person’s belief systems. Unravelling yoga and the teaching of yoga is not an easy task and one that I take seriously.

Susan Wanmer Yoga Teacher Training - awareness

This post is simply to provide a link to an article on chakras that is quite clearly explained. I do believe strongly that ancient traditions should be taken seriously and that certain practices exist for a reason – even if they don’t make sense to us.

Yoga – physical or spiritual?

An excerpt from the article is quite sobering:   “ According to much contemporary spiritual literature, and the field of Transpersonal Psychology, it is not considered wise to engage in any of these practices without the guidance of a credible teacher or without thorough psychological preparation and education in yoga. Any form of intense contemplative or spiritual practice without the support of a cultural context, or without the support of thorough psychological preparation, is usually considered to be unfortunate, and in some cases even dangerous. ”

“Traditional teachers of kundalini meditation also warn neophytes of the potential dangers of experimenting with kundalini Yoga techniques. These warnings should not be underestimated. A growing body of clinical and psychological literature notes the growing occurrence of meditation-related problems in Western contemplative life. Among these we find the Kundalini Syndrome (which is presented more closely later in this article) and different forms of “wind illness” described in the Tibetan tradition.”

Yoga and chakras

Western technology eventually catches up with Eastern understanding, and in the 1980s, two machines were developed to measure and verify meridians and chakras in the body. The books which followed these studies by Japanese scientist Motoyoma help us as yoga practitioners to make informed choices when deciding for ourselves what to include and what to exclude from our practice.

Susan Wanmer Yoga Teacher Training will encourage you to look at the big picture, become informed, place your yoga in the context of where you are and respect the traditional lineage. This is a serious post, the training takes place in weekend modules where we equally have a lot of fun whilst learning.

Susan Wanmer Studio, Seminar or Yoga room

Susan Wanmer’s Consultancy and Yoga Studio at Milton are heading into the sixth year, and she needs to bring more people in as she can’t keep up with the requests.

There are many opportunities to fill the timetable, as people are looking for yoga and work/life balance related services (and stress management), and the studio room and small groups room aren’t always being used all the time.

If you are interested in bringing your skills into a fully equipped yoga studio (20 of everything: bolsters, mats, blocks, straps, blankets, broomsticks, folding chairs and more, plus wall ropes), please get in touch.

There is also interest in courses run for 3 – 4 weeks in the evenings/ luchtimes/ mornings on stress management, any work/life balance topic, relaxation, self-help and related areas.

Looking to create a synergistic hub where the websites, noticeboard and street frontage offer a wide range of constant sources of information and care for the clientele. Think of the Relaxation Centre in Brisbane – a little in that style.

Susan’s contact is (07) 3369 7404, 0410 570 441 mail@susanwanmer.com.au. If you are not from Brisbane to use the consultancy regularly, there are practitioners who use the rooms once a week to see clients, or run an annual or bi-annual event through the studio.

Love to hear from you. Susan

Yoga ‘guru’ Simon Borg-Olivier

YOGA!. Simon Borg-Olivier Anatomy and Physiology Brisbane Byron Bay Yoga guru – I might be criticised for calling Simon Borg-Olivier a Yoga guru, so in case that is contoversial to hear me say that, let me re-iterate my thoughts from an article published a couple of years ago when I called Simon one of Australia’s ‘National Living Treasures of Yoga’. Like to know my reasons? Email me, or comment on my sites and I will tell you why. mail@susanwanmer.com.au

PS – Simon would NEVER call himself that! Simon has agreed to join me in Brisbane and present Applied Anatomy and Pysiology of Yoga Intensive over two weekends (36 hour intensive) plus a 5-day Intensive at Byron Bay between. Attend one, or both locations.

Yoga Teacher Training – your set texts

Hello trainees!

I will provide course notes for every module and give you links to pertinent information on the web. There are two set texts for your Yoga Training. One is the best YOGA  Anatomy and Physiology book on the planet and it was authored here in Australia by Simon Borg-Olivier and Biance Machliss.

Best way to purchase it is directly through their site  http://anatomy.yogasynergy.com/book     It is available both as hard copy and pdf – I have both and use them differently. Thanks to my students who wanted to buy directly from them rather than through Amazon – yes the price is the same and thank you for your desire to honour the authors and put the money back to dedicated Australian yogis who did so much research for us.

http://anatomy.yogasynergy.com/book 

The second is The Kybalion. You can buy the hard copy [make sure you get the original by the three initiates published in 1912], or you can see it online at this site in English:

http://fliiby.com/file/242518/r3xit5n7tg.html  

When you attend the YogaPhil module, I will direct you more specifically to Indian traditional texts.

Who Is Simon Borg-Olivier?


ABOUT SIMON BORG-OLIVIER, CO-FOUNDER OF YOGA SYNERGY

Based in Sydney, Simon runs Yoga Synergy, established in 1984 – one of Sydney’s largest and most respected yoga schools. In fact, the Yoga Synergy style has emerged as a uniquely Australian style and the largest ‘style’ of yoga in Australia.

Simon’s scope of knowledge enables him to instruct classes for beginners to advanced students based on a deep understanding of yoga anatomy, yoga physiology and traditional hatha yoga.

This Yoga Synergy style has been developed over 30 years by physiotherapists (physical therapists), Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss, and continues to develop as yoga becomes more and more popular in the west. They describe the Yoga Synergy effect like “a flowing self-massage, that is very effective in developing strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, internal health, energy, grace, meditative bliss and the ability to deal with stress.” Simon’s passion as he lectures and teaches internationally is his specialisation of adapting the traditional Indian teachings safely to the western body.

The Yoga Synergy system incorporates all the asanas (postures or poses), vinyasas (exercises) and pranayama (breathing control) used in the main yoga styles as well as special execises developed from those we use in daily life. Simon runs special workshops and courses for regular students and for Yoga Teacher Training in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Byron Bay and Adelaide as well as internationally in places such as Ubud (Bali), Japan, Thailand, New Zealand, Malaysia and occasionally in Europe in America. He regularly contributes to the Australian Yoga Life Magazine and the Australian Yoga Journal.

Simon will be in Brisbane presenting two weekend seminars 12 – 14 November and 19 – 21 November on safety and skill in yoga from beginner level right up to advanced teacher level. [There are no pre-requisites to attend either weekend.] Tickets are available for his Brisbane events.  Open to anyone – no previous yoga required. Just an interest in intelligent exercise – correct use of the body through understanding the anatomy and physiology of good alignment in yoga suits pilates instructors, personal trainers, musculo-skeletal therapists as well. Enquiries: (07) 3369 7404, 0410 570 441. synergy@susanwanmer.com.au

Or you can catch Simon at Byron Bay 15 – 19 November 2010 doing daily yoga workshops (some previous yoga required/ recommended). Attend 1 up to 5 days. same contact details as above.

All tickets can be bought directly by clicking on our secure site below:

Relationships Weekend

Love is something that needs work and some people are lucky enough to have the skills for an intimate relationship – and others need to learn the skills they didn’t gain through childhood. One of the most interesting aspects of building a conscious relationship is that the laws which govern your relationships are as strong as the laws of nature.

Once you understand them, you can use them to your advantage to build a deeper relationship. Spend two glorious days workshopping at Gunnebah Retreat all accom and and organic food, complimentary yoga sessions included.

Spiritual texts – The Kybalion

For those of you who are scared of your spiritual self, I sum it up broadly as the sum total of the part of you that is not your physical, or mental, or emotional self. In kinesiology we called that the Essential self, or the X -factor meaning [stuff we can't name - that was before the tv series].

In the Yoga Training we honour the lineage that has come through India and the influence of china and the martial arts – but we need to contextualise that in history and integrate that understanding into the whole planet. So, I have chosen the Kybalion as a set text as it contains 7 Principles which you can find in nature. If you can find it in nature, you will find reference to it in all religions, all cultures, all nationalities, all eras.

Plus - our new age, western spiritually lacks the anchor of traditional and I think it is important to ground our sprirituality. So, for the Susan Wanmer school to go forward with a congruent set of ethics which are inclusive of others and differing beliefs, there needs to be some kind of common denominator. In the Yoga Teacher Training program, you will be lead to the traditional and sacred texts that are the root of the yogic tradition. The Kybalion will take you back even further.

For this reason the Kybalion – Seven Principles has been chosen as an essential text as its seven principles are found in all religions, living and dead.   You can buy it as hard copy through Amazon, or you can find a free version of the original in English:

 http://fliiby.com/file/242518/r3xit5n7tg.html   .    By the way, whether you are part of my Yoga Teacher Training or not – if you agree or disagree with me, please feel free to leave your comment, won’t you.

Possum symbolises Opportunity?…

Who would believe that a possum would gain a couple of people an extension of discount to the forthcoming Anatomy and physiology Course. Because of the possum stuck in the office’s downpipe, I spent a lot of last eek co-odingating a rescue and wasn’t able to get through my workload.   Truly – see it on Animal Rescue later in the year.

 The possum ended up taking up about 4 days of my week. We ended up with the RSPCA, animal ambulance, plumbers, landlords and a whole heap of interested  neighbours.

It wouldn’t have been so intriguing except that the drainpipe is inside the office. We cut a hole in it to try to save the possum, but then risked the office flooding if it rained (which it hasn’t in Brisbane for a very long time, but did of course that week.  (See the photo and article in Westside News of 4 November, page 4.)

A psychologist who works with me said that in Animal Dreaming, a possum represented Opportunity.

Discount extended for A & P

Due to my lack of computer skills and the number of enquiries for Simon Borg Olivier’s Applied Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga Course, I have had to extend the special offer. Save even more: Due to a technical meltdown, I need to extend the earlybird offer another few days. Those who book and pay by midnight 31 October. Pay only $799. These tickets finish 31 October, or if sold out before that. (07) 3369 7404, This will give me the chance to answer all enquiries when I return from the Womens Retreat this weekend and give people time to pay. If you interested, email or phone me to register your interest, so that you don’t miss out!  (07) 3369 7404, 0410 570 441 synergy@susanwanmer.com.au

Flexibility with Yoga ‘BootCamp!

A unique way to start yoga, or to build your flexibility… and not as radical as it sounds!

There is just one week left for sign-on in our ‘Flexibility Intensive’. Every so often we put together a magnificent combination of postures for a 3-week program and this is one of those times.

Yoga Intensive (BootCamp) runs for 3 weeks from July 6 at 6 am. We offer you 12 sessions, but you can choose your favourite days to attend. It is a whole program including a goal-psetting for your body, so you will need to sign-on by 4 July so that you can attend your individual appointment gooing through range of movement and familiarising you with some of the postures.

Sometimes in Yoga BootCamp we focus on stronger ‘power’ postures, but this one fits right in with the time of year and will push the circulation through your body and joints to warm, limber and dramatically increase your flexibility – so this will suit all levels all ages as it will not require muscle strength or muscle flexibility beforehand to attend. Plus it’s great to work in a team and Yoga ‘BootCamps’ are a lot of fun.
