Gratitude Workshop

Saturday 2nd July 2016, 1000 – 1300

Instinctive Health, Unit 13 Yoga Studio, Neepsend Triangle Business Centre,
1 Burton Road, S3 8BW

£30 pre-book or £32.50 drop in

This yoga workshop puts the emphasis on gratitude being another way for expressing our intrinsic interconnectedness with the rest of the universe. The first part of the workshop will be a physical asana session with poses that can unleash feelings of joyfulness, creativity, love and compassion. As we move, we will contemplate the chakras, the energy points that according to yogic philosophy run along the spine. Mindfulness and meditation will pave the way for us to a creative exercise – filling and decorating our own Gratitude Jar. Tea, biscuits and smiles will fuel our inspiration.

We will finish the workshop with a relaxation including time for a sankalpa, or personal affirmation to leave us feeling great.
This three hour workshop includes your own take home Gratitude Jar!

Core Yoga and Pilates Workshop

Saturday 30th July 2016, 1300 – 1530

Instinctive Health, Unit 13 Yoga Studio, Neepsend Triangle Business Centre,
1 Burton Road, S3 8BW

£20 pre-book or £22.50 drop in

This workshop will examine the importance of engaging and using the core muscles in yoga postures. The core muscles are essential for maintaining a healthy spine and posture. They give us inner strength, allowing us to hold arm balances and strength poses for longer, giving us a renewed sense of confidence and control. We will be using some pilates exercises to strengthen the deep abdominals (mula bandha and uddiyana bandha) and using some balancing yoga postures to help us improve our inner steadiness. The small pilates ball will also come into play! Mindfulness of breath will bring about an inner stillness, allowing this focus on our centre to reconnect body, mind and spirit. There will be a tea break mid way through this workshop and time to chat and relax in friendly surroundings. We will round off the workshop with some lovely restorative stretches.
