This accessible 3-hour workshop will give you a pragmatic exploration of the foundations of viniyoga. Moving, breathing, and structuring our practices towards the calming and stilling of body, breath and mind. It will give you time and space to experience and practice yoga in a supportive and friendly environment. The practices will be physical and breath-centred, but try to maintain the focus of meditation throughout, rather than over exerting the body we will maintain a slow rhythm to enhance the cultivating of stillness in body, breath and mind.
You will be supported to explore and experience the core principles of yoga practice at your own pace and level. We will work with core postures, intelligent sequencing and structure, and a 'moving meditation' moving towards calmness and stillness. You should leave the workshop feeling relaxed and refreshed, and inspired to continue practicing.
It will be a friendly and informal workshop where all abilities, levels of fitness and experience are welcome from those who have never tried yoga before to those who have attended group classes but are curious to explore further. There will be breaks and refreshments provided, plus a chance to ask questions and to explore your experience in a supportive environment. There will also be handouts of yoga practice and meditation techniques that you can take home and try. Sitting cross-legged is not required (chairs provided) and all equipment is provided.
Suitable for all abilities and levels of fitness including complete beginners.
