This workshop will celebrate the time half way between the Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice, marking the end of harvest time, and welcoming in the darker winter months. It’s a time for thanksgiving, of death and rebirth; a time to reflect, give thanks, recharge and renew.
Our focus for this workshop will be creating more balance in our lives, working with Yoga techniques and breathing practices that encourage us to become grounded in our bodies, helping to calm the nervous system to promote a deeper, healing sleep. We will combine carefully crafted flowing asana and breath work with deep restorative poses to unwind the body (from the inside out), release deep rooted tensions, relax the mind and invite us to fully let go.
In the Ayurvedic world, Autumn is a very vata season and we need to slow things down, take our time to move and breathe and live. Creating simple rituals and routines can be really helpful at this time of year and this workshop will provide you with some simple tools you can take away to use at home in your own practice. It will provide us with a welcoming space in which to take some time out of our busy lives to breathe, relax, nurture, ground and balance ourselves.
– Revitalising essential oils and warm chai and chat will deal off our practice.
The workshop is suitable for women of all ages and stages of life, including complete beginners to yoga. Some lovely treats will be provided at the end of our session and we will wrap up with a long deep restful Yoga Nidra practice.
