We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Sally join us to host workshops here in the Perth Hills as part of our annual ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ Project.
Sally Riddell is a Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist and teacher of Vedic Chant from Perth, Western Australia who has trained in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya. Her inspirational and inclusive practices stem from the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya, following the guidance of her personal teachers T.K.V. Desikachar, his family and the teachers from the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram. Sally uses all the “tools” of yoga in a way that includes each person in a way that is appropriate for them.
Her personal style of teaching is inspired by the resonance of chant, the wonder of storytelling and the relevance of metaphor.
With an early tertiary education in Fine Art Sally loves creating from the offerings of the natural world as well as through textiles, basket making and drawing.
Sally has led walking and yoga retreats in Western Australia, Spain and India. She is passionate about the power of Yoga, Vedic Chant and Meditation to guide and inform our daily life and the ways in which our lives intertwine with the rhythms of the natural world.
Common Threads Woven Through Community is a month long community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.
Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.
These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
