Weekend Workshops from 17th - 19th June 2022

"THE HEALING GIFTS OF YOGA” 

17th-19th June 2022

WEEKEND Workshops with Andrew Mournehis

 

During this period of global unrest, there is an increasing need for safe, healing spaces where we can gather in community and nourish our bodies, pacify our nervous systems and calm our minds. Only then can we truly allow our body's innate intelligence to do its vital healing work. Its major role is to return us to a space of balance, equilibrium and homeostasis. 

These last few years have taken their toll on many of us and these weekend workshops have been designed to assist those of us who are wishing to rebalance, recenter, restore and maintain a sense optimal health through this ever changing landscape of the world.

These weekend classes and  workshops have been designed for anyone on the yoga journey, whether you’re a teacher with many years of experience, or a student just taking their first steps on the path.  It draws on specific examples from philosophy, mythology and yogic literature to inspire, uplift, and connect you to the most potent and powerful examples of strength, inspiration, hope and healing.

Join us as we explore and embody different aspects of the yogic path which will inform your practice, your classes, and your life as we learn from history’s most amazing teachings.

ANDREW MOURNEHIS BIOGRAPHY 

 

Andrew Mournehis started his career as an Optometrist looking into the “Windows of the Soul”, before giving it all up, after facing a life threatening illness, to fulfil his dream to dance and see the world. This lead to an incredible opportunity to choreograph for Tina Turner on her 1996 ‘Wildest Dreams’ world tour to rave reviews.  At the peak of his career, a knee injury and declining health forced him to return to Australia, where he became extremely unwell and sought out a healing path. He turned to Yoga to heal his heart, mind and body. He immediately fell in Love with the practice, studied vigilantly, and in 1999 began teaching yoga to packed classes. 

Andrew went on to study Transpersonal Counselling, graduating from the Phoenix Institute of Australia in 2001.  He had a very clear vision that his gifts and passions were best directed in the power of group, mythology and the potent healing energy that is exchanged in each other’s stories, both personal and Universal. Being an already well respected and established yoga teacher, he spent the next decade combining his love of Yoga with his passion for healing Transpersonal work to create Transformative spaces for his students and participants to heal and become more whole. 

His unique teaching style is imbued with Heart and Soul, rich in Tantric Philosophy and his classes are filled with Inspiration, Storytelling, Mantra and the Spirit of the Divine. 

Andrew has spent over 20 years facilitating many healing groups, workshops, intensives and retreats both nationally and internationally working with the healing potential of Yoga, Movement, Tantra, Mythology, and Transpersonal Modalities. He brings to his work over 18 years of experience in Transpersonal Counselling and Art Therapy Techniques, 23 years of Yoga Teaching and over 25 Years experience in the Creative Arts Fields.

His qualifications include:

  • Diploma Of Health in Yoga (CAE)
  • Senior Level 3 Certified Yoga Instructor With The Yoga Teachers Association (YTA)
  • Part Of The Teaching Faculty and Assessment Co-coordinator for Academy of Yoga Learning (Formerly known as The Advanced Diploma Of Yoga Teacher Training CAE) (2003 – 2017)
  • Lecturer at the Phoenix institute of Victoria (2010 – 2015)
  • Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling (Ikon Institute Of Victoria)
  • Andrew is also Creative director of Divinegrace Yoga and Dance of the Deities
