From February 1st we welcome the incredible Josh Blau to the Talalla Yoga & Wellness family.
Josh is an eternal student, always looking to to see what he can learn and discover through Yoga. His past work as an actor has shown him that through breath and communication great things can be achieved. Never taking life too seriously, Josh loves being upside down. You will often see him in a headstand or a handstand. He is here to play, have fun and remember that life is too short not to try anything at least once!
One of Australia’s leading Yoga and Meditation teachers, Josh is also known for his energetic, transformative and inspiring classes. Deeply respectful of the origins of yoga and acutely aware of modern day needs, Josh brings everyday balance and flow to his teachings.
During his time with us, Josh will be holding a number of private workshops and masterclasses to share his teachings with yogis from around the world:
Sunday 10th February “Awaken the Serpent”
This is an experience to the very core of who we are and the tremendous power that can be accessed in the human spine.

This class is for the yogis who are ready to experience the limitless strength and freedom that can be unlocked from within. Expect Yoga asana, pranayama, bandhas, chakra vibration and meditation.
** Saturday February 16th “Energetic Alchemy”
This masterclass will take you through a complete Hatha practice traversing the landscape of the grounding and centring lunar practice, towards energy generating and gathering solar practice towards stoking our energetic fire through the central axis of the body. This masterful sequencing will deliver us across the landscape of matter, energy and consciousness through asana, prananayam and meditation invoking the highest potency of the system of Tantric Hatha Yoga.
Josh will then explain the basis of using the asana and pranayama techniques as energetic tools in the practice. How we can best impact our students having them leave our classes with greater awareness and understanding of their body and themselves.
