This restful Friday evening session will introduce some of the fundamentals of yin yoga.
Yin yoga is a delicious, leisurely practice. Our focus will be on longer holds of postures to achieve a greater depth of stretch and promote flow of energy through the fascia of the body and the meridian pathways serving the organs.
This session is a mainly floor based practice and will be suitable for those with a reasonable level of movement.

|28 - 29 October 2017||10am - 4pm Sat, 9.30 - 3pm Sun||The Reality with John Stirk ALMOST FULLY BOOKED!
The reality of yoga concerns its depth. The deeper the experience the deeper the reality. Tension is found on the outside and inside of the body and deeply within the mind. As tension dissolves we unfold into understanding and realization. Further inquiry and analysis is rendered unnecessary as the transformative power of freedom reveals itself.
This workshop challenges our perception and our potential for ‘going inwards’. Working with the body, breath and mind, participants are invited to pass through and beyond familiar sensations into a way of being that transcends conditioning and habit and in so doing uncovers a profound truth.
Please note this event is not suitable for beginners

|02 - 03 December 2017||10.00am – 4.00pm||Beyond Anatomy with Peter Blackaby
The study of anatomy is a significant part of our yoga practice and teaching. However it is important to realise that we don’t end at the physical borders of our skin.
How we know and interact with the world goes well beyond our physical boundaries, we change and are constantly changed by our encounters with the material world.
How we respond and how we notice how we respond to the world goes a long way to shaping our physical and emotional stances in life.
Explore these themes through practice and discussion.
Please bring your own lunch.

Does sleep elude you? Is the quality of your sleep poor, leaving you feeling weary and unrefreshed the next day?
Insomnia affects many of us in a variety of ways and can be debilitating and have an effect on all the systems of the body if left unattended.

She will also offer practical tips and solutions, ‘super sleep’ yoga, meditation, useful breathing and relaxation techniques and other energy practices to work with.
All of this combined with a little ‘sleep science’ will help you increase your understanding of sleep PLUS improve your chances of actually enjoying some!
The ‘Super Sleep’ yoga method was created by Lisa Sanfilipo in partnership with The Minded Institutes research base and is accessible to all.
No experience of yoga necessary!
