Yoga Courses, Workshops and Retreats

 

Yoga Workshops:

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

Yoga and Mindfulness for Mental Wellbeing

We may be finding ourselves less stable and connected due to these strange, shifting and challenging times of the post-COVID recovery, with a sense of wobbliness 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, focusing 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 - 1pm

Date:  Saturday 26th November 

Cost:  £20 - 25

 
Soften, Soothe, allow - 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:  10am - 1pm

Date:  Saturday 21st January 2023

Cost:  £20 - £25

 
Yoga for Cyclists

Whilst cycling offers many health benefits, it also creates tension and stiffness in the muscles of the legs, hips, back and shoulders. During this workshop, we will work to release the legs - hamstrings, quadriceps and the psoas muscle (hip flexor), bring more mobility to the spine and open the shoulders and chest. This is a slow-paced class, suitable for beginners to yoga.

Time:  2 - 4pm

Date:  Saturday 21st January 2023

Cost:  £20 - £25

Yoga for Healthy Backs

Most people will suffer from back ache at some point in their life, whether you spend a lot of your time sat at a desk or standing on your feet, have poor posture or are recovering after a mild injury. During this workshop we will work to release the back with forward bends and twists, support the lower back by strengthening core muscles and free up chest and shoulders with gentle back bends. Yoga postures for all, beginners welcome, although if you are suffering from a serious back problem and find it difficult to lie or sit on the floor, please contact us first.

Time:  2 - 4pm

Date:  Saturday 18th March 2023

Cost:  £20 - £25
