What the half day offers...

Time spent in the kind and gentle company of;

* The wonderful & talented Yoga teacher Jackie King (www.jkyogaflow.com) who will be leading her practice:

Before lunch:

SMR Myofascial Release with small balls and your very own massage foam roller to enjoy learning about SMR

Self Myofascial release is designed to help you move through the various muscles in the body, finding pressure points, and working with these points to help you release tension that has been stored away in your body. Using the tools and movements offered in this workshop will help you find more comfort in your own body as you slowly release tension over time with the use of foam roller and small balls.

This session will give you some great tricks to take home, and will be the perfect way to start the day.

A seasonal Yin yoga, restorative practice cuddled up to bolsters, all props blankets provided.

Then yummy vegan lunch time to mingle and meet some like minded yogis.nourish you inside and out.

Finishing off the day with a magical sound bath of gong a bath with wonderful talented Anna Lees🙏

Gong baths can help you with physical or psychological ailments.

The vibrations work through every cell in the body helping them to heal themselves and therefore YOU!

The pure penetrating sound waves of the healing gong will enable you to break free of old patterns and regenerate and re-balance internally

Working within all the parameters of the body there is nowhere that the resonance of the healing gong cannot penetrate.

Mats and blocks and bolsters will be provided (but please feel free to bring any of your own cushions, rugs etc)

All in the peace & serenity of a Saturday day...for yourself.

Yin yoga is an increasingly popular style of practising. The reality is that many of us lead fast-paced, demanding and intensely stressful lives. We can seem like graceful water birds: gliding serenely on the surface while in fact we are paddling frantically below to stay afloat. We are so familiar with tension and tightness that rarely do we consciously realise the deep need for relaxing and releasing – for ways of reducing the significant stress that we experience.

Yin yoga gives us the space to slow down and stay with our experiences rather than always rushing and striving to achieve. Yin yoga is a practice in which floor-based postures are held for several minutes. Within these long holds there is an encouragement of softness and an emphasis on relaxing muscular tissue. Through this stillness, we can become aware of the various sensations within the body and the fluctuations of mind, emotions and breath. This brings a sense of harmony and peace: so there is a greater ease, a deeper sense of balance, feelings of calmness and acceptance. The Yin practice invites us to explore our inner landscape with qualities of self-reflection, acceptance and equanimity. We learn to pay attention to what is, as it is with an attitude of kindness. Life is precious and a practice such as this can give us space for appreciating the great privilege of being this body. Yin Yoga is beneficial and suitable for all levels.
