THIS ONE DAY WORKSHOP EXPLORES MODALITIES THAT WILL OPEN THE BODY AND MIND RELEASING STAGNANT ENERGY AND REVITALISING MIND AND BODY:
10am - 5.30PM
10am - 11.15am Dance/Movement Meditation. The day will begin with Claudia Schrick from Zurich who will guide us through a series of easy movement and dynamic dance meditations. Her style of dancing has been inspired and influenced by the Hawaiian Hula Dance, a form of dancing deeply connected with spirituality. In essence it is a philosophy of life closely aligned with nature, showing profound respect and appreciation for all living things and it is a combination of meditation, imagination and dance.
Participants will be uplifting their energy with some freestyle dancing, guided by intentions as the body is invited to express thoughts with arm and hand movements. A person’s full potential is reached in this way because body and mind are symbiotically working together and supporting each other. The movements are repeated in a similar way that a mantra is recited. With repetition one dives deeper into calm. It is the expression of ones mindset though movement and is immensely liberating. Claudia is known as one of Europe’s most innovative teachers in this area.
11.30am -1pm Vinyasa yoga. This is suitable for everyone, both beginners and those who regularly attend classes. Each asana will have adaptations and the class will be slow, allowing those who wish to hold poses and focus on strength and alignment to do so whilst beginners may wish to do an alternative more relaxing pose. The class will finish with a 15 mins restorative/savasana.
1pm-2pm LUNCH. This will be vegetarian and most of the vegetables will be from the garden.
2pm-2.30pm. Walking meditation and guided sitting meditation. This is an opportunity to walk the new labyrinth which will be in the water meadow. We follow each other with conscious steps and enter and exit without repeating any of the path. This will take around 15 mins follow by a visualisation meditation in the Studio.
2.30-3.30pm Clarity Breathwork. An opportunity to experience the power of the breath and begin to dive into the sub conscious. It will be new to many of you and I encourage you to come to this session. It will be facilitated by Claudia and Sarah who are both fully qualified Clarity Breathwork Practitioners. Most of the time you will be lying down and there will be music so you are totally unaware of other people. It has without doubt been the most transformative modalities that both Claudia and I have done. There is more information on this website. There will be a short break between the next session.
4pm- 5pm: Gong Bath. Time to relax and feel the healing vibrations of the gongs. We know from research and experience that opening up the body with yoga and breath accelerates the healing power of the gongs as the body and mind reach deeper states of consciousness. Healing occurs when the body is fully relaxed and the mind is still.
5pm ..ish. Refreshments and teas. A time to ground and to chat to others at the end of this workshop. Claudia and I are there to answer any questions you may have.
