CULTIVATING CALM

with Holly Harman

Escape the busy Christmas season and join Holly for a calming and restorative workshop to explore yin yoga, yoga nidra meditation and tips on how to reduce stress in our lives. 

Yin yoga is about finding stillness in the body. Longer, static holds enable us to access yin tissue – fascia and connective tissue. On a mental and emotional level, the practice allows the body to drop down into the parasympathetic nervous system, and therefore becomes deeply healing and nourishing. Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful and accessible meditation technique that focuses on cultivating multiple levels of well-being. 

To round it off, the workshop will explore coping mechanisms and ways to reduce stress we can integrate into our daily lives. Mince pies and hot chocolate included!

INTRODUCTION TO
ARM BALANCING

with Sammy Furnival

Arm balances are liberating postures that teach us not only about our intrinsic power but about our innate playfulness, courage, fearlessness and agility. This 2.5 hour workshop/yoga intensive explores the foundations of arm balancing, and gives you tips and tricks to get your body off the ground and onto your own hands.

We will weave wrist strengthening, arm strengthening, shoulder stabilising and core work into a fun and playful vinyasa practice, before breaking down various different arm balances and looking at different variations to get into them. We’ll learn the essentials to have you soaring into postures such as bakasana (crow), eka pada galavasana (flying pigeon), parsva bakasana (side crow) and flying splits (eka pada koundinyasana b).

Expect laughter, sweating, empowerment and potential faceplanting. Bring any questions you have and take home a refreshed spirit and deeper awareness.
