In the New Year we often tend to think about change. We set our resolutions with eager plans to start the year as we mean to continue. In the yogic tradition, we often set our Sankalpa – a Sanskrit word for intention or resolve. We set this as a determination, to become or to do something fresh in our lives. And I’m sure you’ll agree that so many of us have experienced both subtle and dramatic changes in our bodies and lives as a result of yoga!
Lets start 2018 with a cleansing and rejuvenating workshop to detox our bodies and to explore the power of transformation both on and off the mat. Through our practice together we can, at least personally, build hope, love and optimism into our lives!
We will start with a Yin sequence to clear and nourish the kidney meridian (energy pathways according to Chinese Medicine). Our kidneys filter and purify our blood, balancing our bodily fluids, especially in times of physical and emotional change. This soothing Yin sequence will prepare our bodies for an energizing, spicy, twisty Yang flow to bring fresh buzz and creativity into our minds and bodies to leave us feeling clean and fresh again. As always, we will round up with a long, deeply restorative Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation). We will also practice lovely pranayama (breath work) and meditation.
The workshop is appropriate for mixed ability so beginners and more experienced practitioners are welcome although a degree of physical fitness is definitely advisable.
Cost – £35 including refreshment and all equipment is provided.
