Peace comes from within: a workshop with Naomi Reynolds – SOLD OUT
“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without” – Buddha. As Yoga practitioners practicing peace, we look for stillness in body, mind and heart, experimenting with ways we can ‘drop in’ as a gateway into meditation. The workshop will begin with a clear intention and then will move skilfully through a very slow warm up vinyasa practice that will lead us into restorative asanas perfect for finding the peace within. Suitable for all levels of practice.
When: 3-5.30pm 14th December
Feel it in your Bones: A workshop with Elisa de Grey
Your skeleton is a beautifully crafted frame that supports, protects, and offers the possibility of vast and expressive movement. At birth a collection of 270 objects, at death 206, which exist long after we have departed.
In this workshop we will meditate on our bones; delight in their strength and flexibility; play with their weight and gravity; and explore how much of yoga asana is available to us before the will and ambition of the muscles takes over.
We will discover how effortless effort starts with our marrow. Bring your skeleton and an open mind!
When: 3-5.30pm 22nd December

Releasing Neck and Shoulder Tension with Sarah Scharf
For most of us this is the area we carry stress and physical tension. This afternoon will be about letting it go, unburdening our shoulders from the weight of the world and letting our necks move freely. We start with creating some healthy heat in this congested area, getting familiar with the anatomy and structure along the way. We will look at some common Yoga postures that can be used to create balance, and ease tightness in the shoulders and neck when done intelligently. Deep stretches for the neck and jaw will invite freedom to this area, with some self-care massage tips to top it off. You will learn some simple stretches you could sneak in anywhere, and some basic principles of how to stay healthy at desks and seated situations. Expect to leave lighter.
When: 3-5.30pm Saturday 8th February
