Seasonal Yoga Workshop – Winter

 

Saturday 26 January 2019, 1.30-5pm

 

Evergreen Centre – Letchworth

 

Winter is the most Yin time of the year – our energy levels (and the energy of nature around us) are at their lowest and our tendency is to hibernate until the Spring.

We need to rest in both body and mind.

 

After the very busy end to the Autumn with the festivities around Christmas and New Year, January is an excellent time to recuperate, to take time out to look after ourselves.

 

This workshop will focus on self care with a mainly but not exclusively Yin yoga posture practice and plenty of meditation and relaxation. If you find the festivities exhausting and January a difficult month this may be just the workshop for you.

 

Price: my weekly students £25 (in advance), others £28 (in advance) £35 on the day.

Yoga Workshop with Ellen Lee – Yamas and Niyamas, on and off the mat

 

Saturday Feb 23, 2-5.30pm

 

Evergreen Centre – Letchworth

 

The Yamas and Niyamas are a suggested code of conduct, a model for looking at the behaviour of self and others, that come from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras (one of the classical texts of yoga philosophy).

This workshop will look at the model that Patanjali offers; seeing how it comes into practice on the mat, and how we can use it off the mat. We will also ask whether this model is still relevant to our modern society.

The workshop will include a physical yoga practice as well as time to sit and discuss our thoughts, feelings and experiences.

 

Ellen Lee is current Chair of the Independent Yoga Network. She has been teaching yoga for more than 26 years in a huge variety of settings.

 

Price: my weekly students £25 (in advance), others £28 (in advance) £35 on the day.

Yoga Retreat 2019

Tuesday 21 – Thursday 23 May

Dower House, Hexton, Herts

 

Join me for 2 days of yoga, meditation, good food, companionship, peace and quiet. Time to wind down and re-energise. Time to just “be”.

 

You’ll get to delve deep in to your practice – experiencing a balance of the dynamic and energising with the restorative and meditative. There will be plenty of free time to relax inside the house, or outside. There are also countryside walks nearby.

 

Our venue, the Dower House, is a large but homely Manor house, set in its own beautiful gardens in the pretty village of Hexton. We will have exclusive use of the house and grounds during our stay. There is a spacious and light room in which to practice yoga, and 10 large bedrooms over 2 floors. The bedrooms share 5 bathrooms.

 

The food provided is vegan; delicious, nourishing and plentiful.

 

All-inclusive price includes accommodation, yoga practice and discussion groups, food (from dinner Tuesday to lunch Thursday), unlimited drinks.

Spaces are limited to 12 people.

 

Contact Rachel for full details.

 

“The fruition of a committed yoga practice is the capacity to deeply relax the inner struggle with life’s paradoxes. Someone who is steeped in yoga is better able to tolerate the extremes of heat or cold, agility or immobility, sadness or joy, free from psychological confusion, resistance, or struggle”.
