Mindful Yoga and Yoga Nidra Workshop
The next dates for these popular workshops are Saturday 28 March and Saturday 6 June, 11.30 to 2.30, at Butleigh Pavilion.
If you ever feel tense, stressed, anxious or too busy, this 3 hour workshop including tea and cake will help you to breathe more deeply, relax and create space for yourself.
The first part of the workshop focuses on gentle yoga and somatic movement; you do not need to be flexible and you won’t break into a sweat! No yoga experience is needed. You will then lie down with warm blankets for a one-hour yoga nidra. This deep relaxation will take you to a place between being awake and asleep leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Tea and cake will be served around 2.00.
There are a maximum of 10 places available for this workshop. All previous Mindful Yoga Workshops have sold out so early booking is advised to guarantee your place.
Props and some blankets are provided but you may like to bring your own blanket or a small cushion for your head for the yoga nidra so you are warm and comfortable. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.
The workshop is £28.00 and must be booked in advance.
Developing a Home Practice Workshop
Next date coming soon.
Attending classes and workshops enables you to practice as part of a community, experience the energy of the group and receive individual advice and guidance. If you would like to go further, establishing a home practice is a great way to deepen your experience and explore yoga at your own pace, and at a time that works for you.
Many students say that they would like to practice at home but aren’t sure what to do. This 3 hour workshop will get you started. The workshop starts by exploring the benefits of home practice, timing and frequency and then moves on to a practical 90 minute session looking at how to put poses together and sequence your practice. After a short break for a cup of tea, there will be a 20 minute session on pranayama and then a 30 minute yoga nidra so you leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Resources will be provided to enable you to start sequencing your own practice at home after the workshop.
Free the Back and Shoulders Workshop
Saturday 2 May, 11.30 – 2.30.
Modern living, computers, driving and mobile phones can leave us with tension and pain in the upper back, shoulders and neck. Many of us also carry stress in these areas.
In this two hour workshop, Carolyn will share the personal practices she researched and used to tackle the tension, upper back pain and restricted mobility she was left with after over two decades of working at desks and sitting in meetings plus a fall which resulted in back pain.
The workshop includes strength and mobility work, practices to release tension and a 30 minute yoga nidra (very deep relaxation). The practices are designed to encourage a sense of freedom and spaciousness physically and emotionally.
Resources will be provided so you can continue with an upper back and shoulder practice at home.
No yoga experience is needed for the workshop but you will need to be able to get up and down from the floor easily and kneel down on all fours.
