YIN yoga with Vanessa

  • Sunday 6 July 2014

Here's what Vanessa says:

A Yin practice is less about the external experience in the final execution of a posture, less about building muscular strength and stability, but is more about the internal experience, a practice that encourages balance and healing of the body systems, emotions and a quieting of the active mind.

Yin has been described as "Indian Hatha Yoga postures with Chinese Taoist Philosophy".

Yin Yoga is a quiet, still and passive practice that uses long held postures to activate meridian points and breath work to encourage Qi/Prana flow.

The experience of a Yin session can be described as an acupuncture session without the needles!

Know Your Body Type workshop with Sarah

  • Sunday 17 August 2014, 1pm

Ayurveda is an ancient healing and medical science that categorises people according to their Doshas (body types).

Once you understand your body type a bit better (and most of us are a combination of 2 or 3 types), you can understand how to keep it in balance a bit more easily.

Sarah says 'Knowing your Dosha can give you suggestions about where to live, who to hang out with, food choices, colours, holiday types, jobs and much more. Come on the journey...'

Alignment workshop with Mary

  • Sunday 14 September 2014, 1pm

Mary says:

In this workshop we will look at some anatomical differences that restrict our movement. These restrictions influence our postures.

We soon learn that no two people will experience the one posture in the same way and that striving to reach a 'perfect posture' may not be within our means.

Beginning with awareness in Tadasana/Mountain pose, we will explore our alignment in other poses.
