Yoga Workshop - Developing a Home Practice

Saturday March 16 2-5.30pm

Evergreen Centre – Letchworth

 

Spring is a great time to start new activities or projects. Our energy is rising after the Winter hibernation and we are ready to embrace something new or maybe tweak something old!

 

Would you like to practice yoga at home but don’t know where to start? This workshop is for you!

 

We'll look at:

Reasons to have a practice of your own...

What might be stopping us...

How we can create a simple practice that works for us - and will keep us coming back to our mats.

 

The focus in this workshop will be on listening to what we as individuals need in our practice rather than on following "set" routines, although we will consider those also.

 

The workshop will include a Spring yoga practice as well as time to feel,  think about and discuss relevant issues arising from our subject.

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.

 

 

Summer Half Day Retreat – Fundraising event!

The proceeds from this workshop will go to Mind in Mid Herts

https://mindinmidherts.org.uk/

 

Sat 15 June 2019

Evergreen Centre

2-5.30pm

 

Join me for a half day retreat, encompassing Seasonal Yoga practices for the Summer with a focus on the Heart and Small Intestine meridians. Because of the location of these meridians our practice will include lots of shoulder movements and chest openers.

 

As well as a yoga practice (mainly Yang but with some Yin) and plenty of relaxation, we will explore ways of optimising the high energy of Summer without burning out. And consider what signs of “unbalanced” energy might be like at this time of year…

 

With an open heart we will dedicate our practice to Mind in Mid Herts. All profits from the workshop will go to this charity.

 

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

For further details or to book your space, contact me.

 

“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”.
