Love Yourself Mindful Yoga and Meditation Workshop
This workshop is Onsite
While it is generally easier to express love towards other people, it can be a bit more difficult to show love and acceptance towards ourselves.
In this workshop, we will make time to cultivate the healthy and healing self-attention we all need.
We will begin by connecting to our body and opening those areas of the body where emotions often get “stuck”. Cultivating awareness of the breath and a kind meditative attention to our body will guide us to noticing how we really feel.
A slow mindful asana flow will provide the opportunity to linger quietly and savour the simple sweetness and deep relaxation within each pose. We will practice some restorative and well-supported poses to soothe the nervous system and rejuvenate the body. We will continue with a guided meditation focusing on self-compassion and love to quiet the mind and nourish the heart.
You will leave feeling emotionally and physically stronger, and deeply relaxed.
This workshop is open to everyone and does not require any prior experience. All you need are some blankets and cushions, and warm comfortable clothes.
All levels are welcome
Day & Date: Saturday, 11th February
