The workshop will focus on breathing, twists and spinal health.
We will start with breathing exercises and explore abdominal, thoracic and full yogic breath before continuing to the physical practice.
In this workshop I have chosen to focus mainly on the twists as they are often overlooked in a Yoga Practice.
Twists are very beneficial for the health of your spine. They rotate the spine and stretch the muscle of your back. By lengthening the spine you create space between the vertebrae and that facilitates better energy flow, decompresses the spine and energising the body.
Twists are also good for distressing, tension relief and back pain reduction as well as aiding with digestion and efficiently moving food through the colon.
The session will conclude with 15-20 minutes of Yoga Nidra. We have been incorporating 15 – 25 mins Yoga Nidra practices into most of the workshops and it has been always very well received. If you haven’t tried it yet – you are up for a treat! It’s one of my favourite Yoga practices and I can almost guarantee you will love it.
Yoga Nidra is a yogic sleep. It is a form of guided meditation – a state between being asleep and awake. Yoga Nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation. It helps to distress and cultivates peacefulness and release of long held emotions.
*Please take a blanket if you think you might need one*.
I am really looking forward to this workshop and hope you will enjoy this combination of breathing, mindfulness, physical practice and Yoga Nidra.
Your investment for a 2 1/2 hour session is £15.

You can purchase one of my handmade eye pillows for the session.
The eye pillows are filled with flaxseed , buckwheat, rice and lavender from my mum’s garden. The pillows have a removable cover and can be washed. If you would like it to be made with no lavender and in a different size, please let me know and I will do that for you.
You can also add a drop or two of your favourite essential oil to them. These are available in sparkly black, black, purple/lilac and burgundy red. The fabric is plush or silky (you can pick) and feels amazing on the skin. The eye pillows are great for Savasana (relaxation) during Yoga Practice or can be used any time of the day to rest and relax your eyes. Lavender aids relaxation and helps to distress. It is widely known as a natural stress relief herb. They are made to order. Please let me know what colour/size/scent you’d like them in.
