Winter is a season to draw inwards, to restore our energies and nourish ourselves at the deepest level preparing for the Spring, the season of rebirth, rejuvenation and renewal.
During this week we would like to offer an exploration into the meditative aspects of yoga asana: moving through slow flowing sequences and integrating Chakra Vinyasa, meditation and self- observation into our practice. This will involve deep relaxation, releasing tension and unwinding to find the natural meet our essence within our movement and within
We will practice keeping a 'dont know mind' moving our security point from being defined externally to 'our internal knowing and sense of ourselves'.
Fuid Vinyasa Yoga, Yin nurturing practices, breathing into presence – moving in the direction of release, expansion and freedom. Daily Pranayama, Meditation, learning to create sacred space for self care and 'listening', inspiring talks, nature walks, , chakra work.
We will learn basic Ayurveda and take a gentle spring detox program home .
A healing and rejuvenating approach, suitable for beginners as well as those who want to deepen their yoga practice.
We will complement our asana practice and meditation with some bodywork this week, learning simple massage techniques for self-healing and to connect with others.
