Winter Solstice : Return to Darkness Workshop & Satsang with Anna and Nikki December 2023  

This course is Onsite


Step into the darkness of winter with our Winter Solstice: Return to Darkness Workshop and Satsang. The Winter Solstice is a time when we enter into the depth of darkness, where the natural world slows down in order to restore energy for the next cycle. This time is strongly affected by the feminine energy, which invites us to offer presence to stillness, rest in order to renew ourselves.
In our 3-hour Winter Solstice celebration, you will be invited to experience the Kundalini yoga with Chakra cleansing energy practice, inviting you to notice the wholeness within emptiness. With these practices we began to prepare the spiritual and physical body for our winter time.
Winter is the most “yin” time of year.In order to tune in to the pace of the natural world, we will practise a nourishing yin yoga focused on folding forward, to help you turn inward.
We will then have the opportunity to rest in an extended relaxation practice.

This celebration is an invitation for you to show up for yourself, to explore the space within yourself to discover light in the darkness, wholeness in the emptiness.

Following the practices, we will have a sharing circle as well as food sharing – everyone is invited to bring some nourishing veggie food to share with others.

What to bring:

  • Comfortable clothes
  • Food to share
  • A journal if you like
