Sivananda Yoga Masterclasses
Saturday 28th July and 3rd November 2018, 10-12noon at Santosa on Albert St, £12
The Sivananda practice is a set sequence of yoga. It is a beautifully designed sequence which leaves you feeling balanced and calm. It doesn’t flow in the same way as our regular classes and involves more relaxation between postures giving us more time to pause and experience. Practicing a set sequence can be really rewarding as it helps you see changes in your body and practice since you last did the sequence and practiced particular poses. It’s a fairly slow practice which is done mindfully. Read a blog I wrote for Santosa on the Sivananda practice here.
New Moon Yoga and Intention Setting Monthly Workshops
Sunday, 15th July 2018, 6-7.30pm, Yoga Stable, 3a Montgomery St Lane (off Montgomery St). £15
The beginning of a new cycle of the moon is a naturally reflective time. Join us to use this special time to set intentions for the month to come.
We’ll open with a little info on lunar astrology and explain the energy of this particular new moon. We’ll then flow into our yoga practice, designed specially to help you experience this emotional energy for yourself and discover what it means for you. The final half hour will be spent setting our intentions for the next four weeks. It’s the start of a process of planting seeds under the new moon to bring into the light as the moon waxes towards fullness.
Whilst this is all done in a group, the wonderful thing is that we can each work individually but supported by each other.
I run this workshop with Sara who has run new moon circles in the past. If you’ve never been to anything like this before we would love for you to attend. And don’t worry – we’re not massive hippies! Just two women who have found that this practice of living intentionally has been beneficial in our own lives, who would love to share this with others.
Autumn Equinox Workshop
Saturday 22nd September 2018, 9.30-1pm Yoga Rooms, 5 Forth St. £30
Autumn Equinox – when day and night are equal and the darkness starts to tip the balance in its favour. It’s a wonderfully reflective time of year. Traditionally it is harvest time, a time of abundance so for us it is a time to reflect and take stock, giving gratitude for all we have.
Join us for a themed hatha flow yoga practice. Sometimes we do a storytelling yoga session, other times the theme is woven in through ideas and words. We then do a meditation and set our intentions for the autumn.
Some feedback from people who attended our previous seasonal workshops:
“I absolutely LOVED today! Thank you so much, both of you. I thought the day was really cohesive, balanced and balancing. A total joy!”
“The workshop was just what I needed, it had a great impact on me and over these few days since I have kept returning to it and I really look forward to the next one.”
