“I have been to a couple of Susan's Slow Yoga Sundays and I can honestly say it's been the best self-care experience ever - the lovely relaxed atmosphere and slow postures, beautiful aromatherapy scents and homemade treats all made the workshops feel very special and restorative. I am definitely booking onto more of these in future! “
What we'll do:
Opening with a centering and grounding meditation and time to connect to your breathing and yourself.
We'll start with some gentle slow-flowing yoga postures to gently warm and awaken the body, along with simple yet effective breathing techniques to restore balance and calm to the mind.
Moving onto some Yin Yoga. This is a wonderful practice, done seated or lying down, working on releasing tension through longer held poses and making space in the body.
Using lots of bolsters, blankets and props we'll experience some gorgeous Restorative Yoga poses, which allow the body to yield and release, calms the nervous system, and allows you to practice stillness in body and mind.
We'll end with a beautiful deep guided relaxation (called a Yoga Nidra which means 'yogic sleep'). This is a deeply relaxing practice (as the name suggests!) done lying down, that really calms the mind.
Accompanied by a beautiful gentle soundscape, aromatherapy oils, often some poetry and candlelight to add to the feeling of tranquility and restfulness in this lovely space.
How you'll feel:
You'll leave this yoga workshop feeling:
stretched and released
calm and relaxed
revived in body and mind
nourished and ready for the week ahead
