Singing Circle - Fill your heart, clear your mind, heal your soul
Dec 17, 2020 - Dec 17, 2020
 

Join Morven and JP for a candlelit evening of uplifting song. We will be singing soothing yoga mantras with JP on the guitar and Morven on the flute (if she's feeling brave enough). This evening is about finding your voice and experiencing the healing that comes from joining voices together in song. It's not about making a pretty sound, so if you think you can't sing then come along anyway!

In this time of very little physical contact between people due to the effects of the pandemic, we can share human contact through voice. The healing power of sound and sounding is well documented, with evidence showing that singing helps to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, release tension and increase overall wellbeing. Plus, it's fun!

We will be serving refreshments in a covid-safe manner - bring your own mug!

Online Restorative Series #2: The Life of Yoga Virtual
Dec 20, 2020 - Dec 20, 2020
 

Sunday 22nd November 2-4pm

Victory Hall, Uphilll, Weston-super-Mare BS23 4XG

The life and the inspiration of yoga can by found within the soothing, ever-present flow of the breath. The bridge to creativity and true inspiration is here, within you. Breath work helps to organise the flow of energy around the body and provides an abode where the mind can rest and regenerate. The breath represents the flow of life and is the element that connects all the moments in our life to this one. In this workshop we will be discovering the lightness of being that deep rest and conscious breathing can bring us.

We will start with simple breath and energy awareness, moving on to restorative yoga postures which naturally energise and support you to breathe well. You will learn pranayama (breath work) techniques to encourage the flow of energy around the body. Consciously guiding the breath not only creates a sense of physical lightness of being, but also releases mental knots and unhelpful repetitive thoughts. We will close this session with a practice of Yoga Nidra - a deep relaxation which helps you to feel grounded and relaxed.

Restorative yoga is a slow, meditative style of physical movement, which helps to release stress and bring about ease in body and mind. The gentle, supported postures are held for up to 10 minutes with a focus on comfort and the subtle release of muscular knots and tight spots. All of the props are provided, and we will be using bolsters, blankets, blocks and belts to ensure that the body is supported enough to completely relax and let go. The stress of daily life accumulates in the body in the form of holding patterns and chronic tension. When you encourage the body to release its held tension, stress begins to dissolve from the mind.

Homecoming - New Year's Retreat Day
Jan 3, 2021 - Jan 3, 2021
 

Homecoming

Renew, Reflect, Regroup

Hatha Yoga . Meditation . Mindfulness . Yoga Nidra . Restorative yoga . Refreshments

The theme of this year's New Year Day Retreat is Homecoming. A whole day of yoga and meditation to help you to come back to yourself, ready to start the new year

It has been quite a year! There is so much for all of us to process in this hugely complex time in which we live. A retreat day is an opportunity for you to let go of all the bundles that you carry around with you and take time to heal and rest so you can be stronger when you go back out into the world. In the yoga space, there are no to-do lists, no roles to fulfil, no responsibilities and no news. It is a space designated for being and becoming. Being is a state that is in opposition to doing. In the being state we are passive, receptive, creative and open to inspiration. As we drop into the being state, we discover our deeper selves, becoming integrated, aware of our true nature and informed by our inner wisdom. Through yoga, you become more who you really are.

The yoga space is one where you can nurture your inner world, observe the mysterious life force as it flows through you and remember wonder. With so many things to worry about, it’s easy to forget the billions of acts of kindness, acts of creation and moments of beauty that occur daily in the world. On retreat we nurture all the good things and plant the seeds for resilience and happiness for the future.

We will start off with two hours of immunity-boosting slow flow yoga practice to give the body a full recalibration, countering the contracting effect of the cold weather and the sedentary habits of the festive season. There will be time for meditation, intention setting and personal reflection.

After lunch there will be Yoga Nidra - a long, relaxing, guided practice which takes you into a trance-like state of deep but alert relaxation (or you might just fall asleep!).

Following Yoga Nidra there will be a long relaxing restorative yoga practice. The postures will be slow, supported with bolsters and blankets and designed for deep physical and emotional release. We will explore the body in relationship to breath and gravity, remove all remaining blocks to relaxation and journey into deep deep rest.

This day, held in warm and cosy Victory Hall in Uphill, is a celebration of who you are, with practices that support a transformation towards conscious, joyful living in an uncertain world. It's the perfect time to set intentions as we begin to journey towards the light after the darkest time of the year. No matter how stuck we think we are, there is always the possibility for transformation. This day is not a day for resolutions but for a revolution - a transformation into wholeness.

There will be afternoon refreshments - Pukka teas and delicious organic treats.

Online Restorative Series #3: The Heart of Yoga Virtual
Jan 17, 2021 - Jan 17, 2021
 

Sunday January 17th 2-4pm

Victory Hall, Uphilll, Weston-super-Mare BS23 4XG

This restorative yoga workshop takes us right into the heart of yoga. The physical and mental practices of yoga are designed to direct our energy back into our hearts. Why? because residing in the heart is the key to living a happy and peaceful life. By practising kindness, compassion and self-compassion we can transform negative energy and destructive emotions into unconditional love and acceptance. Yoga is a way of harnessing the energy of our emotions and using them to transform ourselves. It is the great work of your life.

We will be doing yoga postures, breathing practices and meditation with the focus on seeking out the pleasant and observing resistant or negative thought patterns with compassion and non-judgment. The ultimate practice in this session will be metta bhavana (lovingkindness) meditation. We will also be practising Yoag Nidra (yogic sleep) which is a practice designed to clear away unhelpful habits and beliefs, bringing you closer to your true self.

Restorative yoga is a slow, meditative style of physical movement, which helps to release stress and bring about ease in body and mind.
