The Yoga of Sensory Awareness
Is it possible to attend only part of the intensive?
Because we want to create the very best environment for learning, partial attendance is not permitted. We do sometimes have participants who for work, family or travel arrangement reasons need to miss 1-2 sessions. The cost of the intensive remains unchanged as you would otherwise be taking the place of someone who could attend the entire 4.5 days. If you are travelling from out of town we strongly recommend you purchase travel and/or cancellation insurance to cover such an eventuality.
What if I want to cancel after 15 February?
We understand that circumstances may arise that require you to cancel just before the event. If we are able to fill your space with someone waitlisted (there is no guarantee that will be possible) we will endeavour to refund you less the approx. $50 bank charges, however this will only be possible after the event.
Is there a discount if I only attend part of the Intensive?
We understand that circumstances may arise that delay your arrival or require you to leave earlier. The cost of the intensive remains unchanged.
Can you hold a place for me while I decide?
Because there are only a limited number of places available, in fairness to everyone, we are unable to hold spaces.
Can I pay by installments?
We are unable to offer installments due to the structure of our online booking system. Paying by credit card enables you to pay your bank by installments.
I'm not very experienced, is it still suitable for me?
This 4.5 day intensive is for practitioners of Yoga and somatics with at least one year's consistent personal practice. This does not imply, however, that you need to be practicing challenging movements such as Headstand, Handstand or movements such as deep backbends, as this is not the focus of the intensive study.
I'm pregnant, is it still suitable for me?
If there are no complications with your pregnancy and you were practicing Yoga prior to becoming pregnant, yes. That said, even in the first trimester women can tire easily, so we encourage you to adapt and modify your involvement during class. If you are in the second or third trimester, many supine and prone practices will no longer be appropriate. We will either suggest adaptations and alternatives, or ask you to simply rest and observe if a practice is unsuitable.
Are meals included?
No, however, we will have a selection of teas, milk, and bio cups for your use. If you live locally could you please bring your own cup, clearly labelled, to reduce waste.
What time does each class start and finish each day?
Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the official start time of each class:
- Friday 20 March: 6.30-8:30pm
- Saturday 21 March: 10.00am - 1.00pm, break for BYO lunch, then 2.30pm-5.00pm

What will I need to bring?- 1 yoga mat

- A bolster if you have one
- 1 yoga block (brick-shaped rather than tile-shaped)
- 1 yoga belt
- 1 thick bath towel
- 1 thin hand towel
- 18cm Muscle Release Ball or Gertie Ball (you can purchase the muscle release ball from www.embodiedwisdom.pub)
- A week or two before event, we will send you a list of handouts to download and bring to the intensive
If you flying into Melbourne and need a props package, please contact Gene Kelly: firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't have some of the items on the list, what can I do?
We do recommend that you purchase items you do not already have as these will help you continue many of the practices that you’ve learned at the intensive. However, there will be some extra props at the venue.
Will I get CPD points for this intensive?
Check with Yoga Alliance. While we understand that some participants want to accrue training hours, it’s much more often that people attend these intensives because it’s an investment in their own practice and teaching, rather than to accrue credits.
Refunds and Cancellation Policy
The price less $50 bank charges and booking fee is refundable until 15 February 2020. No refunds can be made after midnight 15 February 2020 unless your place can be filled by another person.
In case of cancellation by Donna Farhi (trading as Ladino 2004 Ltd), you will receive a full refund.
In case of an emergency where Donna cannot travel, Donna will assign a senior teacher in her place (this is highly unlikely).
All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver to participate on this intensive.
