The art of balancing Yoga-movement workshop

The workshop is now taking place on Saturday 12th September, 2-4pm. In case of bad weather we will relocate in a studio space nearby.

Do you want to improve your balance, be fearless and get more confident at weight bearing on 1 leg, 2 arms, 3 knees, 4 hands? Balancing can indeed be taken lightly and playfully with the right tools and skills to launch yourself into your pose.

In this outdoor workshop we explore yoga asana on the grass and on the mat, using our natural environment to support our practice.

I will give you some practical tools and tips to achieve and refine our equilibrium. 

We will start with some movement and somatic exploration relating to finding a strong sense of support, elevation and shifting the body weight in an effortless way. Alongside this physical and anatomical exploration, the participants are invited to dig deeper into the somatic and experiential level of what it is to balance.

Playful exploration games will be followed by an asana lab and a sequencing flow, involving simple to more complex balancing asanas on 1 leg, arms, pelvis and belly.

    Feedback from the workshop:
    ‘The workshop was lovely. I had been slightly anxious over whether I would be able to do the balancing poses and also enjoy yoga without being distracted by the sights and sounds of the outdoors.  However the class flew by! I did not feel conscious of anyone else in the park and it was easy to get into the flow of the class. Starting off with a foot massage was magical and grounding. Your pace and calming energy was ideal for the surroundings. Lying back and looking up at the expansive blue sky made me realise I had not done this since way before lockdown back in March. It really helped me to take my thoughts off of my daily issues and relax my body and mind.’ – Lianne
