Gentle Yoga & Meditation

A weekly gentle yoga and meditation course which is suitable for beginners and those looking to develop their yoga practice. Emphasis on breathing techniques, gentle movements, body awareness, while strengthening the body and calming the mind.

Each week we will deepen our practice and skill, using gentle yoga sequences to bring us into our bodies and creative practices such as breath work, guided meditations poetry etc. to develop awareness and bring us into this present moment which, if practiced regularly, can truly help to ignite your own natural healing process.

There are so many benefits to developing self awareness and mediation, here are just a few;

  • Calm Your Mind - by bring your attention to your breathing, your normal busy mind will begin to let go of it's busyness allowing you to relax.
  • Focus - you can use the techniques in this class as a daily practice, some are so simple you can do them at your desk or in place of a coffee break. This will bring your focus into the present moment allowing you to control your thoughts and better focus on what's important.
  • Reduce Stress & Anxiety. Our minds are often worrying about what happened in the past or what might happen in the future which creates stress and anxiety in our lives. Bringing our mind into the present moment relieves us from these patters of worry and stress and thereby bringing more peace into our lives.
  • Listening. By taking the time to calm our mind and focus on what's happening in our bodies right now, physically, emotionally and spiritually we can begin to really listen to ourselves, get to know ourselves more intimately, increase our own intuition and begin to live more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
  • Community/Connection In this digital age where we have so many ways to connect with each other, we often find that we have less physical connection and social interaction with each other. Coming together gives us the opportunity to practice together, which increases the intensity and power of our practice, and also to meet other like-minded people.

No experience necessary.

What you need: 

Wear comfortable clothing, Water (optional), Cushion/blanket (optional

Sacred Voice Circle

In this Sacred Sound Circle we will come together to explore using sound to balance, restore and harmonise the many energetic layers of our human body, connecting also to the earths energetic field. We use intention and sound to offer healing for ourselves, others and the entire planet.

Starting from stillness and a deep listening, we will use different techniques such as gentle movement to connect with the body wisdom, rhythm, vocal toning, chanting, vocal improvisation.

Focusing on creating or listening to sound is a meditation in itself and is very effective at stilling the mind and allow the body's natural healing to occur. The vibrations we create will have a profound affect on ourselves, the group and will continue out to the wider field.

Absolutely no experience or musical knowledge needed.

We will meet at the Kelly Room at the Urban Co-Op on the last Monday of each month - pre-booking is essential.

Please contact me if you would be interested in coming along.

Date: Last Monday of each month

Poetry Dive Workshop

A Poetry Dive is an immersion in poems, music, movement and silence designed to take you beneath the surface and liberate the flow of your feelings and free your unique expression — through words, voice, body, sound and silence.

There are messages hidden inside poems that become alive to you as you hear, speak and take them into yourself. Through this immersion, we begin to discover and reveal more and more of our true nature.

You don't need to be a poet, or even a lover of poetry to attend this workshop.

Inspired by the work of Kim Rosen (author Saved by a Poem) and many amazing poets, I invite you to dive with me and others as we journey together towards this path of self-discovery and awakening.

 

Glimpse by Chase Twitchell

It was as if a window suddenly blew open
and the sky outside the mind came flooding in.
My childhood shriveled to a close,
just like that, thread of smoke
that rose and touched a cloud - or the cloud’s
replica adrift on the slow river of thinking -
and disappeared inside it. In that dark water,
a new lily was opening, sky- white out of the muck.
It was only a glimpse, quick,
like a bird ruffling,
but I saw the flower’s
beautiful stark shape, an artichoke
brightened from within by the moon.
A path lay shadowy under my feet,
and I followed it.

Sounds of Devotion (Clonakilty)

An evening sharing Heart opening Songs, Mantras & Poetry. 

We will sing together and discover the beauty of mantras, sacred songs and, in the stillness, I will offer some spoken word from some of the most beautiful and sacred poets from around the world.  It is a devotional gathering which has been described as a way to come home to yourself.

Everyone is most welcome. No experience of singing or chanting is needed, just a desire to express universal love through singing and being together. 

KEEPING WATCH

In the morning
when I began to wake,
it happened again–

that feeling
that you, Beloved,
had stood over me all night
keeping watch,

that feeling
that as soon as I began to stir

you put your lips on my forehead
and lit the Holy Lamp
inside my heart.

Breathe, Move, Sound

So many of us believe we have lost our voice, or that it is not good enough so we bury it deep, losing a deep sense of who we are. This workshop invites you to rediscover your voice, our most powerful tool of expression and connection. I invite you to join me to discover true nature of your own voice. Using gentle movement, breath, voice and chant work we reconnect and bring honour back to the ever present voice of your soul. Contact me for more details
