Extended time for your body, mind and spirit
Honouring Yourself; Setting Boundaries
If your summer was a blur of social events, holidays and lack of routine you may have fallen into some bad habits with food, exercise and self-care. We all do it!
If you are in need of a reset, give yourself some time out and join me for an afternoon of focus on YOU.
We will be using myofascial release techniques to tackle any embedded tension or stiffness, then enjoying a relaxing yoga flow with an emphasis on fluidity and deep stretch.
After a nourishing afternoon tea, we will spend some time on goal setting with a wheel of life exercise to assess your current situation in terms of happiness, boundaries and balance.
Most of us have never been taught how to create boundaries and sustain them. We believe that by saying no, people may no longer like us. Yet boundaries are indispensable - together with kindness and decency - to honour our own wellbeing and balance.
The workshop will conclude with a deeply restoring Yin yoga session and yoga Nidra so you will leave relaxed, released and renewed.
Give In To Yin
Press pause and go deeper.
Yin Yoga is a practice which encourages a softening or surrendering of activity and observation of present moment awareness.
Integrating the Chinese Five Elements into our practice and life, we become more balanced and healthier as we are each an embodiment of Earth, Fire, Water, Metal & Wood.
This workshop will include a slow, vinyasa flow class with an emphasis on releasing tension in the upper back and shoulders. Suitable for everyone, this practice will create space and softness in the upper body helping to improve posture.
We will then explore some yin yoga postures to release the lower body—the hips, pelvis, legs and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. If our connective tissue and fascia are not stimulated and stretched, they can become hard and even crystallised, which can lead to stiffness, stagnant energy flow, poor posture and pain.
Yin is excellent for those with joint pain and stiffness or those with long-standing inflexibility or movement restrictions.
The workshop will conclude with a relaxing yoga Nidra to allow you to access deeper levels of rest than you may normally experience.
