Somatics Workshop: better movement for head, neck and shoulders - £30

Do you suffer from a “tech neck” sore neck, tight shoulders and aches from too many hours on a ipad, pc or phone?

Come and work it all out in a 2 hour Somatics workshop. Somatics movements involve gentle movement that free up chronic pains and tightness by rebooting the brain to muscle communication. When you put your muscles under habitual stresses, you don’t fully release the muscles which means that you use up energy even when resting. By practicing somatic movements you retrain your muscles to relearn their natural resting length. Giving you ease of movement in those areas. All welcome.

Glow Yoga Bliss: A Spring Restorative Workshop - £30

Let go of Winter and embrace Spring with a Sunday morning restorative workshop.
Hit the pause button on your busy life, restorative yoga helps you to recalibrate your mind and body back to your natural rhythm. The slower pace and focus breathing triggers the rest, digest and repair responses from the very first pose. This activation of the parasympathetic nervous system helps to dampen down the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can, over time, be damaging to your well-being. The calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class that comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level. We start with gentle mobilisations of the joints and muscles that get stuck in stress patterns and then we will release it all into held poses fully supported by props. We end with a 20 minute yoga nidra, a guided meditation, you will leave feeling rejuvenated and ready for the Spring.

Deepening the Conversation - £30

Every time we step on our yoga mat we have the opportunity to start a conversation with ourselves and deepen our connection to both physical body and mind. A vinyasa yoga practice can allow us to explore, through the dance of movement and breath, ways in which we can respond to self on a deeper level.

But like any conversation which veers into the territory of rote sometimes this dance becomes predictable; we're uninspired, we rely on learned movement patterns, get stuck in what we know or don't know, or lose trust in what we instinctually know but aren't sure about and the conversation stalls. When we allow ourselves to step beyond the asana, trust our technique and allow our own unique movement patterns to unfold we can begin to find the sweet spaces within the shapes and the language evolves beyond the prescribed movement, and instead we become the creators rather than just allowing the practice to be something which is "done to us". As we flip that switch to "creator" we open up to a new level of sensation and understanding.

In this workshop we'll begin with a vinyasa practice to get ourselves moving, creating links, chains of reaction, waves of movement and explore how each movement is as important as the one before, after and during. We'll open up the dialogue by exploring the spaces inbetween, the connections, the journey into and out of the asana and the asana; itself a constantly shifting entity rather than a rigid, posed shape, so that we deepen the conversation just as we shape and form spoken and written language. We'll delve into phrases of movement, seek how we can utilise the breath to make the experience richer and fuller, and learn to trust and make movement uniquely our own.

Movement exploration as medicine for the soul!
