Restorative Yoga Evening
This Evening Runs Monthly
Restoration and Relaxation- an evening of Restorative Yoga. Restorative Yoga can be a valuable tool for self-care, especially in challenging times. Restorative yoga helps to regulate the stress response and rebalance the nervous system, enhancing our capacity to heal.
This evening will not focus on stretching or strengthening, but on releasing tension in the body through long-held poses designed to support and comfort. In this deeply nourishing practice we will relearn the art of relaxation, and develop the ability to self soothe.
Finding Your Flow – Workshop
October 10th 10am
Building a home yoga practice.
Are you ready to invite your yoga practice into your home (or anywhere outside of the studio!), but aren’t quite sure where to start? If so, join me in this workshop as we explore and develop a home practice that is right for you.
Practicing at home can deepen your understanding of what yoga means to you personally, and allow your practice to evolve, connecting with your inner-teacher. After this workshop you will feel more confident and inspired to start, or build on, your home yoga practice.
Autumn Recharge – Yoga Retreat Day
Saturday, 3 October 2020 from 9am-5pm
“Autumn whispered to the wind’ “I fall; but always rise again.’ ~ Angie Weiland-Crosby
I Love Autumn, it is my favourite time of year. It’s a time to nurture and recharge both body and mind. In this workshop you will have the chance to refocus, rebalance and restore, leaving you with a overall sense of calm, clarity and deeper connection for the new season ahead.
This yoga retreat day will consist of two yoga sessions (90 minutes each), a mindful, silent, walk through the beautiful Loose Valley, where we will connect with nature, a group session giving us the opportunity to share and connect as we discuss yoga philosophy, and how we can invite it’s teachings into our daily life, as well as meditation and pranayama practices.
The morning yoga session will be a slow vinyasa flow class, focusing on opening the heart and throat chakras. The afternoon session will focus on the natural element of EARTH, which will be more of a restorative / yin yoga class, focusing on grounding in the base chakras.
There will be a small break in the day, where you can have your lunch, take a break, do whatever you feel.
Yoga Workshop – Foundations Of Standing Postures
Saturday, 7 November 2020, 10am – 11:30am
Standing Postures are the building blocks of an asana practice. In this fun and dynamic workshop, we will explore the fundamentals of standing postures in a vinyasa practice. We will be looking at the different variations of the postures to develop your practice further, as well as modifications, so that you can walk away with options which are best suited to your own practice.
We will also be working with transitions, along with correct breathing, and body awareness to promote a more fluid vinyasa practice. As a result of this workshop, you will have a better understanding of alignment in standing poses, and be able to move into and out of postures more easily and safely.
Poses included in this workshop are, but not limited to; Mountain Pose (Tadasana), Triangle Pose (Trikonasana), Standing Forward Fold (Uttanasana), The Warriors (Virabhadrasana), Extended Side Angle (Utthita Parsvakonasana), and everyones favourite Downward Facing Dog (Adho mukha svanasana).
This workshop is suitable for beginners, as wells those who are more seasoned in the practice. Props are provided and mats are provided, but if you have your own please feel to bring them along. Please wear comfortable clothing you can move freely in, and a bottle of water. Oh, and don’t forget your sense of humour! There are bound to be laughs and giggles
