Jivamukti Yoga Day

Jivamukti Yoga Day

Saturday 9th September 10-3.30pm  
With Andrea Kwiatkowski

Jivamukti yoga is a path towards enlightenment for all beings through compassionate ways.

In this Jivamukti workshop we will be exploring teachings from the Ramayana, an ancient text telling the stories of Sita, Ram and Hanuman which tell about the relationships between these deities and the teachings of the heart. When our hearts open we find our love for everyone is infinite. Sayings such as "to have a big heart" , "open the heart" are common place in our society. We will be exploring the link to the Anahata Chakra, in the centre of the chest. The heart is considered as a symbol of love and the Anahata regarded as the seat of love. When our heart opens to divine love it includes all beings, all of our relationships are strengthened and deepened.

Workshop will include mantra, scripture study, meditation, asana sequences which we will explore the location of the Anahata Chakra, described in the Chandogya Upanishad as "in the centre of the body there is a shrine, hidden within the shrine a lotus blossoms”.

“The best thing you can do for your own life is to do all you can to uplift the lives of others"

Certified 8 Week Mindfulness Course 
Certified 8 Week Mindfulness Course
With Justin Illes

24th September – 12th November - Sunday afternoons 4-6pm
Full day session on 5th November 10am-4pm

We call the kind of moment to moment awareness invoked by tuning into your breath and to every other aspect of your life MINDFULNESS. It is developed by purposefully paying attention in a non-judgmental way, to what is going on in your body and mind, and in the world around us. Staying in touch in this way from one moment to the next, this shift in awareness, may lead to seeing things somewhat differently, perhaps to feeling less stuck, or to a sense of having more options, more strength and more confidence in your possibilities, more wisdom…

The course aims to assist you in taking better care of yourself and in getting the most out of living. The majority of people completing the programme report lasting physical and psychological benefits including:

  • An increased ability to relax
  • Greater energy and enthusiasm for life
  • Heightened self-confidence
  • An increased ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations

The aim of the programme is to learn new ways to handle challenging physical sensations, feelings, moods or social interactions.
£225 for sessions, materials & personal support

Yoga Workshop
Yin Yoga Workshop
Friday 8th September 7-9pm
With Jo Davey

Yin yoga is often described as the bridge between yoga and meditation. The practice involves slower movements, longer-held postures and deep breathing, resulting in a feeling of nourishment and quiet. During the workshop we aim to release long-held tension around the joints, improving range of movement. Once in a pose we can soften and relax, both physically and mentally. An evening to help find ease and freedom of movement in the body, calmness in the mind.
Open to All Levels 
£14 or £12 for series pass members
