|Saturday 23 January 2021||10.30 - 3.30||Face the Day with Monica Voss - ONLINE VIA ZOOM
We are delighted to have Monica join us to kick of the new year with a workshop which is open to both teachers and students.
Face the Day!
Spending time releasing the face will expand the breathing, lengthen the spine and create a shift in our outlook that may last the whole week and become a touchstone, a faithful pandemic strategy.
We will squeeze and stretch and palpate, soften and stimulate tissues, joints and sutures, including our sticky jaw furrowed brow, tender skull, the delicate throat and tenacious neck muscles. We will use relaxation, breathing techniques, postures and sound. What a beautiful wake up for our yoga practice and our lives!!
Timings include a 1 hour break for lunch at 12.30
|Saturday 15 May - Sunday 16 May 2021||Sat 10.00 - 4.15 and Sun 10.00 - 12.30||Deeper Still - A Weekend Exploring Consciousness through Sensation with John Stirk
A Workshop Exploring Consciousness through Sensation
The reality of yoga proposes that we are asleep and yet to awaken to an abiding sense of totality. Initially developed to transcend our conditioning, yoga demanded an austere approach. The exercises are effective but the problem of conditioned minds is deeply embedded. For some, the reality may be the pleasure of the bodywork, for others it may be a deepening sense of self, or a shift in habitual behaviour. The philosophy not the bodywork has sustained yoga’s appeal over many centuries. At its core, yoga’s reality confronts and transcends our limits. We are aware of the physical limitations but generally unaware of the limitations of a conditioned consciousness. Addressing the problem of us takes more than bodywork, but our attraction to the sensory aspect can be used as a door to a deeper and sustainable transformation on other levels.
From Deeper Still by John Stirk
This practical workshop highlights the potential for transformation by approaching consciousness through the sensory aspect of simple physical attitudes.
Suitable for all levels.
