Spring Clean Detox: September 16
We often feel a little sluggish, tired and heavy by the end of winter. Spring is a time of renewal and we naturally and often unconsciously begin the process of clearing out the house or we may decide to start a new healthy eating regime.
Come and join Carol for a spring clean of the body and mind. Learn kriyas, pranayama and yoga practices that can assist us in feeling clear, vibrant and energised. You will be guided through a yoga sequence that supports the body's natural detoxification process by increasing circulation and blood flow to the muscles. The sequence will include lots of twists and deep forward bends and a gentle inversion to enhance and promote good digestion and lymph drainage. After compressing and twisting the body we will rest the digestive system and activate the parasympathetic nervous system with poses that restore and rejuvenate. The session will conclude with a guided meditation and Yoga Nidra.
You will leave feeling energised and deeply relaxed.
Yin Workshop 30 September at 4pm
Allow your body and mind to be transformed into a state of peaceful bliss with this 2 hour Yin Yoga Workshop with Fiona. Research on creativity shows that we come up with our greatest insights and biggest break-throughs when we are in a relaxed state of mind. That is often when we experience those ‘eureka’ moments. Yin yoga creates space in your body and mind to experience such moments.
Yin Yoga is a more introspective practice that addresses the deeper, spiritual dimension of yoga with a focus on breath, meditation and the energy centres or chakras.
This workshop will run from 4 - 6 pm and suitable for all levels.
Bookings are required.
Calming Anxiety through Yoga: October 14
Anxiety is a big problem for many people. Our fast-paced and over-stimulated lives can leave us feeling too stressed to cope. If you have suffered with anxiety, you know it undermines your happiness and can reek havoc in your relationships. This workshop will explore strategies you can use to bring your anxiety back under control.
Yoga relaxation and breathing practices (pranayama) can help you calm a chaotic mind and develop healthier thinking patterns. Join Fiona for this special workshop to learn how you can make simple changes to your life, and build a stronger, more confident you.
You deserve it.
Restorative/Yoga Nidra Workshop
Restorative yoga is the antidote to stress! Taking time out to relax is essential to our health and sense of well-being. Discover a new way of nurturing yourself through the practice of restorative yoga.
During this 2 hour long workshop you will learn how to rest and relax deeply with the use of yoga props such as bolsters and blankets.
Gentle and supported poses are held for anything up to 20 minutes, the time it takes for the nervous system to completely quieten. Come and experience the myriad of health benefits and the healing power that come from activating the relaxation response.
This session concludes with a guided meditation (yoga nidra) that is designed to help your brain relax.
All of Glide Yoga’s teachers have trained with Judith Hanson Lasater, International Yoga Teacher and author of ‘Relax and Renew’.
This workshop is limited to 16 places.
