What is yoga? The word literally means to yolk, to unite, to bring connection. The practice of yoga is an ongoing journey of discovery, never really complete. A practice of continually aligning and restoring the self, our values, and our connection. Particularly when we have chosen to live within society, we have to keep practising our re-connect due to the complicated structures and distractions around us.
If you are new to this practice of yoga, the above may sound quite hefty and intimidating so we start slowly, we begin by opening the door back to the self to reconnect with our breath, our body and start to regain a little composure and perhaps control over the mind.
I always try to teach from a space of respect for the lineage of this practice, we have some profound masters that have shared their wisdom and enabled us to take this path. Using pranayama (breathwork), mantra (affirmation), mudra (gesture), meditation techniques, Sankalpa (intention) to help establish a deep unity within. My offering is to teach the student more than just movement.

Ollie will guide us through our Qigong session. Practised standing, the main focus of this healing art is relaxation; about sinking deeper into relaxation while moving… mindful movement. It is an excellent way to release tension out of the body and calm the mind at the same time.
Charlotte will share a calming Yin yoga session. Yin is gentle, embodied movement, focussing on stimulating and compressing deep connective tissues in the body through long holds. A passive and contemplative practice in which poses are held for 3-5 minutes. Supporting the body with cushions, blankets and other props and will include restorative resonance breathwork, this is an opportunity for you to slow down and move inward.
We will end the morning with a beautiful relaxation session; Yoga Nidra accompanied by the sounds of the handpan and koshi chimes. Opportunity to stay and chat to us over a cup of ginger tea 🙂
