Breathing for Life

Central Wellness - A space for yoga and holistic health
Breath is essential to life. It is the first thing we do when we are born and the last thing we do when we leave. In between that time, we take about half a billion breaths. However we are not always conscious that the mind, body, and breath are intimately connected and can influence each other. Our breathing is influenced by our thoughts, and our thoughts and physiology can be influenced by our breath. 
I am very pleased to offer our first Transformational Breath® Workshop in May.
Transformational Breath®  is a gentle, simple technique that helps people to open up the full potential of their breathing system for better physical and emotional well-being. It teaches a pattern of conscious breathing that is natural, safe and healthy and which can have many benefits, including increased energy, better immune response and increased ability to deal with stress in a healthy way.  Open to all no yoga experience needed.

Jac Godfrey from Wildfire Yoga is also returning for the always popular Jivamukti workshop, Journey to the Heart Centre.

What Yoga Means to me - Julia Taube

Morning yoga with Aga makes my week. I am a University student, completing my Masters which is hard and stressful.  I have been doing yoga before, however not regularly. I knew it will be good for me to start it again and I was desperate to find a morning yoga class in Lincoln as I am very much a morning person. In October, an advertisement of the early morning yoga appeared at University. 

I stared to attend with my flatmate, and we have immediately fallen in love. Aga somehow has a feel to provide the exact class what I need as each day and week is different. I am always refreshed in my mind and body as well after attending Aga’s Yoga class. I feel energised and happy after each session. To be able to start the day with a great session of yoga is just wonderful. This is really important as I have a really busy and stressed lifestyle at the moment.

I am very grateful for finding Aga and the Central Wellness yoga studio. The studio itself is welcoming nice and inspiring. I have especially enjoyed to have the gratitude jar when each week I was actually thinking of things I am grateful for because if this jar.

Now yoga became part of my everyday life, I try to practice at home as well and I started to annoy all the people I know and not practicing yoga to do it, give it a go at least. 
Aga's Classes are every Friday morning at 6.30am

QiGong Workshop

QiGong and the Compassionate Mind

Saturday 20th May 10am-12.30pm
With Nick Strack

This workshop provides an opportunity to learn how movement and breath unite as Mind becomes still, and how Life Force (Qi) can be experienced and directed within the body through Mindful Presence and Calm Abiding in stillness and movement.
We will learn and use the well-known 18 Movement Tai Chi QiGong Form which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Relaxing into the repetitive movements, the body extends and withdraws in harmony with the breath. This is a wonderful form for paying mindful attention to the flow of the body, the flow of the breath and the flow of energy (Qi).

The Breath will be linked to our experience of Be-ing within the body. Using the practice of Deep Relaxation we “breathe” into parts of the Body, using our capacity for curious attention and inner kindness to hold and heal. Each part is honoured and appreciated. Stale energy is released and bright, fresh energy flows in.

Heaven and Earth Chi Kung unites the inner realm of the body with the outer field of Creation, principally the Earth and the Sun, the field of earth and water and the sweep of the Stars. All are brought together in a series of simple movements united with breath as your relationship with the Earth and the Stars, embedded in the body, brings light and joy singing within the realm of Calm Heart and Still Mind.

We finish with a Group Healing Meditation offered for all beings. You will find that all you have done in the Workshop is directed to this one end of compassionate abiding.
