Letting Life In Yin-Yang Yoga Workshop with Rebecca
Mar 3 @ 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm

 

 

As you come out of winter, are you ready to let new life in?  Do you feel content? In good spirits? Sometimes the end of winter can leave us a little flat-spirited, life feels a little mundane, we can feel impatient for change. And yet, while spring isn’t quite here, this is ​also a perfect time to explore how yoga can fight the blues, reconnect us with life’s ​energy and realign to the​ meaning in our ​lives. Partly, Yoga can help to get our energy flowing, to raise our spirits. The practice also allows us to enquire into how we can tune in to an innate joy and happiness in our daily lives, especially through cultivating feelings of gratitude and wonder in all that we experience.

 

​The workshop will be inspired by ​Santosha. Santosha is a Sanskrit term and underlying principle in yoga meaning satisfaction and contentment. Contentment doesn’t mean complacency here or a short-term fulfilment of desires. Rather, understanding and practicing with Santosha helps us to see how we tend to always wish things were different or judge ourselves as inferior to others. These are merely habits that make us miserable. Santosha helps us fall back in love with the minutest of details in how we experience our bodies, our relationships and the world around us. In Stephen Cope’s words; “Through practice, I’ve come to see that the deepest source of my misery is not wanting things to be the way they are. Not wanting myself to be the way I am. Not wanting the world to be the way it is. Not wanting others to be the way they are. Whenever I’m suffering I find this war with reality to be at the heart of the problem”.

 

Come and join me in Letting Life In and explore what it feels like to be thankful for being alive!

 

As in previous workshops, we will combine Yin followed by Yang Yoga. In the Yin session we will target the Spleen and Stomach meridians to cultivate a feeling of harmony and acceptance; a feeling at ease with who we are, wherever we are. We will then allow this ease to flow into the Yang session, which will combine an uplifting anti-blues flow with some simple partner yoga to explore trust and compassion in the postures. We will explore how being fully present in the postures, breath, relaxation develops a warm sense of connection with life’s energy.

 

For the partner yoga, you may work with someone you’ve brought with you or with someone else in the room. It’s all good.

 

Cost: £35 and refreshments are included. Full payment is essential to confirm your booking. Please email me at Rebecca@theriverroom.org.uk for bank details.

Putting Yoga into Practice with Pete Blackaby
Apr 28 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

 

To be effective it is important that our Yoga practice is underpinned by a reasonable theoretical understanding. Arguably there are three main things we need to consider. Firstly do we know how to lose tension by finding effective support through the floor and our bones. Secondly, within any personal constraints are we capable of carrying out the full range of normal human movement? Thirdly do we know how to listen to our sensory nervous system closely enough that we don’t move unnecessarily into discomfort.

This workshop will consider these aspects of yoga largely through practice, but with time to consider what and why we are doing things.

The workshop is principally for Yoga teachers or for Yogi(ni)s with a regular practice.

Cost £45 and please email Rebecca at rebecca@theriverroom.org.uk for payment details. Please note that full payment secures a place.
