Autumn Equinox candlelight Yin Yoga Workshop
A celebration of the Autumn equinox - the point of balance where day & night are the same length.
The session will begin with some Pranayama (breathing practices) & a short silent meditation
then move into some Yin yoga poses gently trying to restore balance in our body & finding some quietness in the body & mind.
The session will focus on physically balancing out the sides of the body ~ front, back line & lateral stretches and twists.
The Pranayama practice will look at releasing blocks (granthis) with the Nadi Sodhana (alternate nostril breath) and Nadi Kriyas (cleansing practices).
Session will end with a long Yoga Nidra and a short closing meditation.
Sun 17th Sept ~ 6-8pm @ Threlkeld Village Hall £20
Samhain Candlelight Yin Yoga Workshop
Welcoming the Dark
This Samhain Candlelit Workshop will celebrate a time half way between the Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice that marks the end of harvest time ahead of welcoming in the darker winter months.
It’s a time of death and rebirth; a time to reflect, recharge and renew. A perfect time to dream and drift.
Our focus for this session will be on ways we can create more balance, working with Yoga techniques and breathing practices that encourage us to get more grounded in our bodies helping to calm the nervous system to promote deeper sleep.
We will combine breath work with deep restorative poses to unwind the body (from the inside out), release deep rooted tensions, relax the mind and invite us to fully let go.
Limited to 15 people

Happy Hips, Legs & Feet ~ Therapeutic Yoga Workshop
This workshop is designed to strengthen & free up all those muscles that have been strained, shortened and tightened by all those years of running, cycling and sitting for too long.
The hips, hamstrings and spine (psoas) were designed to have freedom of movement, to bend with ease & to be supple.
In this workshop we will aim to cultivate a greater range of motion & flexibility in our Hips, Hamstrings and Psoas by using yoga stretches, supported Yin yoga poses & self massage - Myo-fascia release.
