Story-telling Yoga Workshop
Saturday 11th July, 10am-11.30. Online via Zoom. Booking here. Pay what you wish.
Come and hear the story of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of abundance, beauty, harmony and love.
Lakshmi brings sweetness to our lives, and when she is gone, Alakshmi appears – dissatisfaction, greed, hatred. Join us for a yoga practice where we’ll join the sky god Indra on his journey to find Lakshmi, so that we too can appreciate all that beauty our lives offer us.
This workshop is best suited to those who have done some yoga before 🙂
New Moon Yoga and Intention Setting Workshop
Sunday 21st June, 6-7.30pm. Online via Zoom. Book here. Pay what you wish.
Our monthly workshop is usually themed around the new moon. This time the new moon falls on the summer solstice so we’ll celebrate the height of summer in our workshop, through a yoga practice, journalling and intention setting. Sara will teach us how to make flower crowns – a traditional practice in pagan and celtic parts.
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.
Sivananda Yoga Masterclass
Saturday 27th June, 10am-12noon, pay what you wish. 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.
