Power of Yin
to Nov 5

Power of Yin

  • Whangarei Heads Yoga Retreat (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This 7 day retreat touches all levels helping us anchor into our individual nature as a unique expression of ONE universal power. In Chinese medicine that ONE power is viewed as the two complementary energies of Yin and Yang. Yin power is like the Earth; substantial, grounded and contracted. It is a receptive, magnetic feminine energy relative to Yang which is masculine, active, stimulating, and outgoing

Opening and letting go

Opening to Yin power gives us access to our deep, hidden reservoirs of energy. Letting down and letting in offers us the direct experience of original source energy. On this retreat we awaken to Yin as the feminine, gathering, harmonising, cohesive power of life itself. Using restorative Yoga, meridian based breath and movement practices we activate the nurturing, grounding Mother energy helping to balance the blood and fluid production, regulation and circulation.

Who For ?

This retreat is designed for Yoga teachers, healers and others who want takeaway teachings and practices for empowering and healing themselves and others. 

Theories of Tibetan Yoga and Chinese medicine are explored as foundation for the practices.

Braided Womens Gathering - Staveley

For details of full gathering please visit


The Power of Yin is an exploration of feminine power as it expresses through our inner life and energy. Like the subtle pull of the moon Yin energy is receptive, magnetic and potent by its quality of being. In contrast, Yang, like the sun is an active, doing, outgoing masculine energy. 

Many of us do not have language for what we feel and sense inside, even though our instinctual wisdom is all the time attempting to guide us in our lives. In this session we introduce simple wisdom teachings with body centred guided meditation to explore what’s calling you forward right now.

Tapping into our embodied knowing supports us to take wise actions in the world, a natural outcome of balanced Yin and Yang.  Filling our Yin reservoirs through nourishing our collective potency as women, can help us restore our energy and gather the power we need to flow with our larger life possibilities. When the volume of Yin is strong, like a river full of water, the propelling action of the currentcan naturally transform blocks on our path to nourish the unfolding of our destiny.                                                                      

Revealing a life of purpose and meaning and showing up to what life is offering, is a day by day step by step journey - there is no magic door ! Opening to the receptive power of Yin prepares us to welcome the inspiration of the unseen and call it into being.

In this Power of Yin session we introduce seven steps to help us engage feminine power. We look at Life as a journey emerging from the Source essence, embodied in the deep Reservoirs, enlivened by the power of Flow, revealed through the strength of Presence, grounded through how we Mother ourselves, held sacred in our Homes and partnered by the Great Mystery.

Know and Flow Your Energy - Beijing, China
to Sep 19

Know and Flow Your Energy - Beijing, China

From the moment of conception your Qi directs the growth, development and evolution of your life. The energy of life itself flows through your body creating meridians/energy pathways as your personal link to the Qi of the whole universe. Aligning with the free-flow of universal qi  - harmonises all movement in your world; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. 

In this Yoga teacher training program we explore how to know yourself as an energy being so you can drive your energy in the best way possible for YOU. We introduce how to energise and balance free-flows with traditional medical Yoga practices -  a fusion of Chinese and Indian medical systems. 

You will take home a clear understanding of how energy is produced, circulated, regulated and maintained in your body. During the training we use Traditional medical Yoga practices to re-establish energetic balance. You will also be introduced to how inherited, and/or conditioned emotional and mental patterning impacts the flow of energy in your life. We give you tools to help clear any inherited blocks and free yourself to be yourself. 

This training is about personal empowerment and you will take home tools to transform inherited and conditioned patterns of being which may be blocking the expression of the real you. Knowing how to access and flow from your deep energy systems can support you you to discover your inner courage and bring your gifts forward. You Being You is your greatest offering to life - give generously !

Viewing ourselves as energetic layers

Knowing ourselves as energy beings, gives us language for how our inner lives express through our physical, mental and emotional balance. When we have language to connect with how we feel,  we can begin to communicate and express the essence of our true nature.

We can also free up and transform old stuck energy which may be blocking our relationships and flow in life. When we are more aligned with the natural free-flow of our lives we discover the power of our courageous Hearts and inner sensations background JOY and happiness.

Your Open Heart ~ the Doorway to Love Melbourne

IN this workshop we explore the Yoga of relationships through a fusion of Tibetan Yoga, gentle touch and interactive sharing on the ways to open the doorway to love.

Every day in my clinical practice of Chinese medicine I hear stories of people struggling with relationships. It’s not surprising for in our mainstream education we have little or no education on how to create and sustain loving, healthy relationships.

Yoga is about connection and yet many yogis only feel connected when they are in the Yoga studio. In this day together we explore how to open to more loving relationship to ourselves, others, and life as an interactive energy system.

Most of us will recognise how at the Heart of us all is the deep longing to love and be loved. Love has many expressions and to love with our whole hearts it is useful to learn the simple language of love and how it is often trying to be revealed.

In this day we practice the physical opening of the Heart while observing and exploring the ways we all communicate through the subtle sensing of our Heart’s deep knowing.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.

~ Rumi

Leading With Heart - Queenstown

This retreat focuses on the archetypal framework of the Four Fold Way by Dr Angeles Arrien PHD (1940 - 2014)

The four fold way grew out of Angeles Arrien's research of perennial wisdom teachings i.e. what the ancients knew They are a synthesis of her lifetime studies of indigenous peoples and shared ways of being. In ancient cultures the awareness of a spiritual dimension is central to their worldview. This mystical perception of our world invites us to see life as a mystery, something to be revealed rather than solved. Living the mystery of life, we are not heading for an end point, rather we are engaging with the journey step by step. 

In the FFW the way to access life as part of an interconnected energy system is to engage the awareness of each of the four archetypes. The four ways are: Showing Up and Choosing to be Present - the way of the Warrior. Paying attention to what has Heart and Meaning - the way of the Healer, Be Open, not Attached to Outcome - the way of the Teacher, and Tell the Truth without Blame or Judgment - the way of the Visionary.

Living the FFW we are encouraged to give our attention to the now moment, as this is where the power to create life anew exists. When we let go of focus on end points, we start to engage with the living energy current of life in the present - here is the power to co-create our lives, relationships and all experience. As we learn to focus the collective attention, by opening to the guidance of the mystery at work in our lives, we can facilitate a collective shaping of the future.

Heart centered living (1).png

Jing Luo (meridians) embody the fusion of heaven and earth as circulatory flows of energy infused in the blood, body tissues and fluids. These circulatory flows are formed as deep channels (Jing) and more superficial collaterals (luo) which enliven and connect all the body tissues and parts. 

Being in flow with our lives is dependent on the free-flowing of these nourishing, self-balancing systems. When our body is relaxed and free-flowing with energy, the regulation of our emotions, thoughts and attitudes to life maintain a lightness of being. From this place we can adjust to the changes of life.

In this workshop we provide a simple view of the meridian system function and dysfunctions. We draw upon Chinese medical theory to understand the free flows and how disease patterns develop. Theory is integrated through the Tibetan Yoga practices to both experience and resolve blocks in energy movement.

Free-Flow the Jing Luo

Professional development training - Practitioners with TCM knowledge only

NZ $130 - book via email: camerontukapua@gmail or TEXT 027 588-5886

In Chinese medicine health is defined as the ability to adapt to change. Flowing and transforming with our changes is the essence of a fulfilling life. Many people present in clinics with liver Qi stagnation and Kidney deficiencies. To access true qi first we must uplift and free flow the Jing Luo. Irregular lifestyles, poor diet, emotional stress and overwhelm by life’s happenings, are common in today’s fast changing world. 

This workshop has two main ingredients. The first is “hands-on” and includes checking and clearing blocks to treatment and balancing left right meridian flows. We will use muscle testing, akabane testing and superficial needling to check and clear blocks to healing. The second ingredient introduces Kum Nye - Tibetan movement practices for opening connections between Zang Fu and Jing Luo.

Free-flowing the Jing Luo is central to general health and well-being for both ourselves as practitioners and the people we help. The workshop focus is on moving the energies to help clear and resolve stagnation in the channels and introduce simple practices for helping others help themselves.
