Get your Sh*t together at the Indigo Project.
Have you been a bit all over the place lately? Feeling anxious and stressed? Is your mind in the clouds? The Indigo Project is a fresh new boutique psychology and mindfulness studio based in Surry Hills who are here to get your s**t together. Their vision is simple and straight to the point: help people get their s**t together by utilising modern psychology and mindfulness. By applying the use of yoga and meditation, the Indigo Project looks to exercise the mind as much as the body.
The local Sydney studio offers access to professional and down to earth psychologists and holistic practitioners, workshops, courses and events, creative yoga and meditation classes for those of all skill levels. Plus they have transformative retreats both locally and in Bali.
The team behind the Indigo Project stand firm that yoga and meditation aren’t just for hippies but rather provide essential skills everyone should carry for a healthy, s**t free life. The Indigo Project has come up with a bunch of different themed classes that focus on different areas. This isn’t your average yoga studio.
Regretting all the times you skipped nap time at kindy?
Naps aren’t just for the kids at The Indigo Project. The team believe that ‘adulting’ isn’t pulling an ‘all-dayer’ but instead fitting in a quick siesta to get your mind in order. Short sleep breaks can improve ones mood, alertness, concentration and overall productivity – good news for all those who may have had a heavy night before and need a little pick me up!
The Indigo Project have put together a comfortable, safe space for you to get relaxed with some calming meditation followed by half an hour dedicated to napping off that stress (or hangover). A single class costs $12 so skip that Double Quarter Pounder meal and throw it towards some mindful sleep time instead.
If you can’t fight it or flee from it, just float.
Mindfulness meditation is exercise for your brain. The more you do it, the more you’ll see the benefits. And with so many classes to choose from, there’s no reason not to explore your mind. Expert or novice, there’s something for everyone and every need at the meditation studio.
If you’re just starting out and think meditation is just about staring at a wall in a cross legged position for an hour think again. The Mindfulness will teach you all the basics of zen and how you can get it on. If you’ve missed your weekly soak in the tub one too many times, the Relaxation lesson will make up for that by giving you the chance to simply soothe your mind and spirit. Unknot those tired tense muscles and float away. Is this buzzing city getting the better of you? Join the Love and Kindness class to call positivity and compassion upon yourself and those around you.
Swap the Gin and Tonic for a Yin and Tonic.
We’re told that regular yoga activity has been proven to increase one’s physical strength, flexibility and balance. It also extends from benefits of the physical sense and soothes your nervous system, dissolves stubborn physical tensions and teaches you to learn acceptance and empowerment. Sounds good to us! Shed that extra baggage you’ve been pulling around with you and learn to let s**t go with any one of the innovative yoga classes the Indigo Project offers.
There are classes to unwind and de-frazzle your mind after a heavy week, those for when you need a little more focus in your life or even those for when you need a little more education on balancing both the mind and the body.
Twist yourself into a pretzel, melt into your mat and breathe your worries away with these hour long yoga sessions. Classes start at $22 or for full benefits, invest in a membership to the studio – $40 monthly for all the yoga, meditation and nap classes you can handle.
