New Moon Yoga and Intention Setting Workshop 

The Sunday of the New Moon, Santosa, 21 Albert St, 6-7.30pm, £18. Book here.

24th November – New Moon in Sagittarius SOLD OUT! (Join us for the winter solstice celebration instead – details below. )

New Moon in Aquarius (Feb 2019) alter

A yoga and intention setting workshop themed around the energy of the new moon.

This workshop involves a 45 minute yoga practice which will be themed around the energy of Scorpio/Sagittarius so that we can learn how we embody and express this energy in our own mind and body.  The second half of the workshop involves some journaling and setting intentions.
Please bring a little notebook and a pen so that you can write down your intentions. Yoga mats available at the studio but feel free to bring your own.

The beginning of a new cycle of the moon is a naturally reflective time and coming together in a group brings support and power to this practice.  This workshop is part of a process of living with more awareness and intention, cultivating the ways we’d like our life to develop.

I run this workshop with Sara who has run new moon circles in the past.  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.

Winter Solstice/New Year Celebration 

9.30am-1pm on Saturday 11th January 2020, Santosa, 21 Albert St, £35.  Book here

A workshop to celebrate the mid winter and to help you not only survive the darkness of the coming months but to thrive in it.

I run the Seasonal and New Moon workshops with Sara, who leads the intention setting part.

We’ll explore the darkness and the slowly returning light through our yoga practice, embodying the themes of being with our own darkness in kind, compassionate ways.
Next, we’ll do some guided journalling, helping you identify what was beneficial in the last year and what you need to let go of to be able to move forward in healthy ways. This will lead us into intention setting – an opportunity for you to set your intentions for the coming months as we move towards the light again. What do you want to achieve this new year? How would you like to feel?

We finish with a craft activity so that you have something to take home that will remind you, on a daily basis, of your intentions.
This is a small, friendly group of people all doing this work individually and privately, but together in a supportive environment.

This is a popular workshop and usually sells out so please book early! There are only ten spaces available. Please bring a little notebook and pen to write down your intentions.

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.”

This workshop is led by Joanna of Shine on Yoga and Sara of A Kitsch Witch (that’s us – pictured above!)

Sivananda Yoga Masterclass

Saturday 15th February 2020, 10-12noon at Santosa on Albert St, £15. 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.

If you have any questions about any of these workshops I’ll be happy to hear from you. Please email me on joanna@shineonyoga.co.uk
