YOGA AND MEDITATION FOR WELLBEING -
For wellbeing, the body benefits from movement and the mind benefits from stillness.
Here will be both.
We will be using Yoga movement to release and stretch the body.
Each week will highlight different aspects of meditation practice.
It is open to advance booking as a course of 6 sessions over consecutive Thursdays. If spaces remain, drop in will be available in September.
There will be introduction to Yoga asanas and also different styles of Yoga, with Hatha, Yin, and a little flow, some restorative yoga too. The Yoga will build week on week expanding the sequence begun in week 1.
The emphasis is on using Yoga as a moving meditation, release of tension, and preparation of the body for sitting meditation.
Whether it's your first time meditating and doing yoga, or you have an existing practice, come and join us for what will be some beautiful sessions!
Building to a longer period of sitting meditation, from 10 to 20 minutes.
We will be using deep rest and relaxation as the essential starting point for breath awareness leading into meditation.
The meditation has no religious or spiritual emphasis. We will use mindfulness techniques which have been found useful for wellbeing and mental health.
We are looking at some of the basic techniques which offer a clear method and a simple, enjoyable way to get you started on your journey of meditation.
The sessions will be less structured and less taught than a formal course, the emphasis is entirely on practice, rather than instruction or discussion.
The Yoga is set at a level for a reasonably active body, without at all requiring any special level of fitness.
Normal aches and pains, lack of flexibility, weight issues and so on are great to bring to Yoga. Please contact me if you are unsure about beginning, the level of fitness needed, or any special requirements.
Please do get in touch, I am really happy to answer questions, and prepare to be both energised and calmed!
The course lasts 6 weeks, and I hope to have one or two sessions as taster drop ins before it starts.
Look forward to meeting up with you in September, Mysie
