Yoga Courses, Workshops and Retreats

 

Yoga and Mindfulness Workshops:

The following live workshops are taking place at the Bristol Folk House:

Wellbeing for the Whole Body
 

This workshop will combine yoga (mindful movement) with some mindfulness-based techniques to explore and connect what is going on in the mind with that of the body. We will learn how to pause and feel into the body and then base our movement on what is showing up. In this way we learn to listen to the body and work with it. Therefore, supporting us to soften, soothe and allow. In this way we learn how to follow the breath, flow with that wavelike movement in a holistic and joined up manner. We are then able to move more softly, mindfully, and kind-fully taking care of our mind, body and heart.

Time:  1pm - 4pm

Date:  Saturday 27th January  2024

Cost:  £26 - £33

 

Introduction to Mindfulness for Stress Management

We may be finding ourselves less stable and connected due to these strange, shifting and challenging times and left with a sense of wobbliness, stressfulness and helplessness. This can be so unsettling and really knock us off kilter. The mind and the body are completely interlinked systems, so we can affect our mood through working with the body and vice versa. In this workshop we will explore moving with the breath, focussing inwardly and bringing our awareness back to the present. Therefore, we will gain experience of how using both mindfulness and gentle mindful movement (somatic awareness) can help us to feel more grounded, present, connected and alive.

Time:  10am - 12 noon

Date:  Saturday 24th February 2024

Cost:  £19 - £24
