Let go and Restore
Our restorative workshops get booked up quickly.
Take some time out from your busy life and practice the art of doing less (the Italians have an expression for this 'il dolce far niente". Restorative yoga calms your nervous system and nurtures your body and mind. Supported by blankets and props, we will practice passive yoga poses that will help facilitate ease, health and relaxation. The poses will be combined with guided relaxation and calming breathing techniques. Take home techniques to use in your daily life to help manage your stress level. No yoga experiences necessary.
Restore, relax and learn how to nurture your natural breath with some restorative postures. This workshop will reinvigorate you.
See you on the mat with blocks, bolsters, chairs, lots of blankets and pillows.

Get your chakras working
Relax and Renew
Building up from strengthening ankles, feet, legs to support the pelvis, which connects the lower limbs with the upper limbs, flowing gentle movements to encourage better flow of energy and information to warming up creating heat, to resting and observing the natural breath in deep meditation gave me glimpses experiencing bliss and connecting with the sun, moon, earth, plants, and other beings.
I experienced for the first time feeling like a playing dolphin after a very powerful and beautiful trusting water massage.
It includes a chakra fine-tuning asana practice (joint freeing and /or vinyasa flow inspired sequences, pranayama (breathing) and pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses to connect with your inner being) and meditation techniques.
We will discuss the 7 chakras and practice and reflect accordingly: Muladhara, Svadisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishudda, Ajna and Sahasrara. Each chakra is related to a specific organ and if unbalanced can lead to certain diseases and mental formations. The first step is to become aware of what is happening in your body and then find ways how to find the balance again. This could be through exercise, affirmative statements, food, and other techniques.
We also will work with positive affirmations and philosophy to go deeper into our self-enquiry.People feel better, more content and in general happier after this workshop. Open to all levels, we will discuss each chakra. Each chakra is associated with particular functions within our body and relate to specific life issues (e.g. confidence, feeling insecure) and the way we handle those issues (let fear overcome us, anxiety). We can learn how to handle those issues in our life exploring the Ayurvedic text books about chakras, marmas and energy lines can change our diet and exercise regimes. Come and learn more. The power of a right intention will lead to joy and stillness.
