a nourishing day of yoga for World Meditation Day – Saturday 21st May in Minehead
Through a seasonally-themed yoga practice and lots of playful inquiry, this is a day to delve deeply into what’s good for you and return back into the world feeling relaxed and refreshed.
I’m really excited about doing workshop days again, especially after such a long break, and I hope you’ll be able to join me. Any queries, please ask!
I think you’ll enjoy this day if….
- You yearn for a space to deeply relax and reconnect to yourself in uncertain times
- You want more depth in your practice than happens in a weekly class
- You like the idea of meditating, but haven’t found an approach that suits you
- You’re curious about why you do and say the things you do
- You find yourself saying ‘yes’ when you really mean ‘no’ (and vice versa!)
- The last two years have somehow left you wondering what it is you really do want in life
- You simply love spending a whole day enjoying your yoga and being in good company!
Email me to say “Yes please!” and reserve your place with payment of £60.
The day will run from 9.45am – 4pm. To keep it affordable, please bring a packed lunch and I’ll provide tea and coffee.
The morning session will be an indepth yoga practice, including pranayama and relaxation; and following a coffee break, we’ll explore movement as meditation.
There’ll be a generous break for lunch so you can go for a walk and get some fresh air (there’s an outdoor gym next to the hall, should you feel inclined to be more active!).
In the afternoon, we’ll delve a little more into what is good for us; exploring our Yes and our No; sitting quietly and listening for the voice inside that knows what we want; and exploring some postures from Embodied Yoga Principles that you can take off the mat and into life.
The day will end with one of my unique semi-scripted, seasonal yoga nidra journeys, to guide you into a state of relaxed daydreaming and deep-felt replenishment.
If that sounds delicious, get in touch quickly to book your space.
The day is aimed at people who’ve done at least a little yoga before, but it will also be interesting and accessible to beginners who are reasonably physically fit (able to move comfortably from standing to kneeling and sitting the floor).
