A Day to Explore - Gentle Yoga and Somatic Practices with Charlotte Preston

Somatic - 'of the body' tuning in, noticing what we may feel or experience within the realm of our body, beyond the everyday level of awareness. How it is if we really take the time to notice, and drop in to a deeper experience of body, breath, movement?

Join Charlotte for a day of exploration, and discover how gentle yoga can be at the same time strengthening and invigorating! Alongside yoga postures, we will be exploring 'somatic' movements, movements which help form a connection from brain to body, and encourage greater ease of movement. We will be moving our bodies in a variety of different ways, with care, and allowing time to rest as well.
The aim of the day will be to awaken, strengthen and also relax the body and mind through our yoga practice.

10.30am - 12.30pm Morning session : we will explore how to wake up the body through movement, and a gentle, unhurried, at the same time challenging and strengthening approach to yoga - inspired by Vanda Scaravelli
12.30pm-2.00pm Lunch
2.00pm - 4.00pm Restorative yoga, body-focused (somatic) meditation, a long relaxation.

Suitable for everyone.

Yin and Yang workshop with Freddie

There many types of yoga nowadays. Most could be described as either having a yin or yang quality, according to which energy they cultivate. A yang practice consists of steady, unrushed, warming movements, while a yin practice consists of longer-held, restorative, cooling poses. Ideally, we should try to incorporate both practices into regular weekly classes. Often though, due to time restraints, one is prevailing.
A longer workshop can integrate the reinvigorating effect of yang and the grounding effect of yin into a balanced whole practice, which helps us maintain optimal health and wellbeing. Invest in yourself and experience how a comprehensive yang into yin journey through movement, poses, flexibility and stability, breath-work, mindfulness and relaxation can allow you to restore a sense of balance, and feel nourished, calm, strong.
Suitable for students with some experience of yoga.
