Sivananda Yoga Masterclass
Saturday 21st November, 10am-12noon, £15, online via Zoom. Book here.
The Sivananda practice is a set sequence of hatha yoga (meaning we practice the same poses in the same order each time). We start in savasana, then practice two breathing exercises, sun salutations, and 12 different asanas followed by a long guided relaxation. The focus is on moving with awareness and breathing deeply. This practice aims to stretch and strengthen, moving the spine in all directions as well as moving the different energies in the body so that you feel balanced by the end – both energised and calm.
Practicing a set sequence can be really rewarding as it helps you see changes in your body and practice since you last did the sequence and practiced particular poses.
Read a blog I wrote for Santosa on the Sivananda practice here.
Autumn Equinox Celebration: Yoga and Intention Setting Workshop
Sunday 20th Sept, 6-7.30pm. Online via Zoom. Book here. £18.
Autumn is a time of transition.There’s a sense of longing, of loss, as we move into the darkness and away from the warmth and light of summer. This seems especially true this year when things haven’t been as we thought they might. Join us ot explore the themes of autumn in this workshop and to set your intentions for the autumn months.
This is a small, friendly group of people all doing this work individually and privately, but together in a supportive environment. It is part of a process of living with more awareness and intention, cultivating the ways we’d like our life to develop. Read about how the practice of living intentionally and running these workshops has influenced me here.
This workshop is led by me (Joanna of Shine on Yoga) and Sara of A Kitsch Witch (that’s us in the photo 🙂 )
If you’ve never been to anything like this before we would love for you to attend. And don’t worry – we’re not massive hippies! Just two women who have found that this practice of living intentionally has been beneficial in our own lives, who would love to share this with others.
Those who attend these workshops have given feedback such as:
“This was an insightful practice, and wonderful to give myself some time with lovely folk.”
“Haven’t really been to a nicer yoga practice ever. The new moon info was very interesting. Thank you. what a nice time to have to reflect and set intentions.”
“It’s been a rough three months and having this space and time on a regular basis has been a way to feel grounded and stable when everything else wasn’t.”
Please bring a little notebook and a pen so that you can write down your intentions.
If you have any questions about any of these workshops I’ll be happy to hear from you. Please email me on email@example.com
