Sunday Date: 16/12/2018 From: 14:30 - 17:00
This workshop is for the ladies only. Why? Because despite the vast number of women practicing yoga, there aren't many classes that focus purely on the female experience, taking into account the constantly changing nature of our bodies and the different flows of energy that accompany the stages of our monthly cycles.
In this workshop Kate hopes to help other women take ownership of their yoga practice in a way the promotes deep healing and nurturing of their bodies. We'll look at calming, restorative sequences to practice when menstruating (or when life feels overwhelming and you need to slow down), and explore ways of moving in a more dynamic practice that honours our wombs and helps to balance our hormones. We'll also look at ways of using breathing, meditation and chanting to celebrate the changing nature of our bodies and re-connect with the divine feminine energy within. This afternoon will be about carving out me-time and practicing in a safe and supported environment. A relaxing and rejuvenating treat for yourself and maybe a friend that will give you tools to take home and practice to feel empowered. Suggestion: wear comfortable loose, clothing and bring a light blanket or scarf.
