Yoga & Thai Yoga Massage Day
JUNE 9, 10am – 5pm, Beechwood Hall, Cooksbridge
Picture yourself in the countryside, with a nourishing and energising day of yoga and Thai yoga massage, delicious vegan lunch and a silent walking meditation in nature?
Start your morning with a grounding meditation, allow yourself to arrive and let go of the stresses of your everyday. Then mantra and an opening, slow-flowing and deep yoga asana practise to prepare body and mind to settle into the breath. Explore pranayama breathing techniques to invigorate and cleanse the system of tension and stagnant energy, and then luxuriate in a deeply relaxing yoga nidra to stir, awaken and reconnect you to your creative and positive intentions for yourself.
Following a home-cooked vegan lunch, we will (weather allowing) walk barefoot in nature in silent meditation to ground our awareness and connect to our proprioceptive senses, how we connect with the world.
Then, open, spacious and receptive, we will reconvene for mantra, heart meditation and to share an afternoon of guided Thai Yoga massage. Learn simple but deeply effective techniques to work with the energy and physical body to further deepen your practise and expand into a more conscious and connective state of being. You will have the opportunity to both give and receive a full body massage, through guided demonstration.
You will learn to dance from the heart, to trust and flow with your intuition!
