SILENT WINTER YIN 

with Jason (skinnibuddha) Searing

Friday 4th December and 8th January 

7.30pm - 9.00pm

YIN is slow, YIN allows the body to stretch, YIN releases tension and joints Yin yoga works on connective tissues and balances the body organs. It is the perfect companion to a gym workout. Based on acupressure techniques we use the map of Chinese traditional medicine meridians to restore and activate various parts of the body. We will be using seasonal understanding of these points and where possible use wall and props (bring belt and brick/block) to go deep. In a world where everything has got faster YIN yoga means your body and mind get to slow down. Let go of everything. You will be introduced to the practice and then the remainder of the session is in silence. With silence comes the additional meditation that is unique to this style of Yin Yoga. If you have never tried a silent practice you may experience new sensations and awakenings. Come and try Plymouth's only SILENT YIN YOGA class and see why YIN IS IN.

WINTER SOLSTICE CACAO CEREMONY & TANTRA DANCE RITUAL

with Landa Love

Sunday 20th December

11.00am - 1.30pm

Dance with the darkness ~ find the spark of new born light within.

This profound dance ritual will work directly with the energies of the Winter Solstice; a special window of peace and renewal as we celebrate the beginning of a new solar cycle. We have the opportunity at this time of year to tend to the deepest aspects of our inner nature, to turn inward in the stillness and the darkness, away from the myriad of distractions and over stimulation to create ritual space to nurture the birthing of our own spiritual sun within. To realign our choices to the greatest of intentions for what the year brings and make progress in our journey of awakening.


We will start this deeply nourishing event with a cacao ceremony; including sound, breathwork, visualisation, light and intention setting. The ceremony will be followed by a tantric dance session and meditation. [The cacao mousse and a golden globe candle for each participant (which you may take home afterwards) are included within the entry fee.]


We will utilise the dance to release what is holding us back; making space for the new light to be born, dancing our intentions and our hearts desire, having the opportunity to have our intentions seen and strengthened by our fellow dancers, the power of visualisation and the holding of the greater field.

Moving upwards through the chakras from deep rooted connection to the physical and emotional in the lower chakras, into the birth of the new light at the heart centre, communicating our embodied intentions with witnessed dance at the throat chakra, using the power of the third eye to manifest our intentions and moving into union and surrender to the Divine at the pinnacle of the dance; working with the polarity of each energy centre in turn within a seamless wave of perfectly orchestrated music and insightful, heart-centred holding.

This is a profound and expertly held process, bringing a heightened sense of embodiment, inner and outer connection and increased energy flow within your system.

 

The space is lovingly held by Landa who has 14 years experience of holding deeply transformational spaces for movement, ritual, dance and meditation; facilitating energetic release, heart opening, embodiment, profound inner and outer connection and increasing experience of the life force within.

Please bring a cushion/yoga mat/sheepskin/blanket (or whatever you need to be comfortable on a wooden floor) for the cacao ceremony and meditation and a bottle of water. We dance barefoot, but if this is a problem for you please wear suitable soft dance footwear.

HEADSTAND WORKSHOP 

with Jason (skinnibuddha) Searing

Saturday 5th December 

10.00am - 12.00pm

Are you ready to turn your practice on its head? This workshop will explore one of the challenging aspects of yoga asana found in Rocket Yoga and intermediate Ashtanga Vinyasa sequences. By practicing headstands we get to check what it is like to balance upside down, and take on an alternative viewpoint. As such headstands are a good way to build strength and confidence. On an energetic level headstands also activate the highest chakra, sahasrara. This is the gateway to super-consciousness and is related to thought, connection to spirit, universal consciousness, enlightenment, wisdom, unity and self-knowledge. We will start building strength by isolating areas of the body, looking at how to maintain balance and then introduce shoulder strength and arm balancing sequences to 7 build up to headstands (Baddha Hasta Sirsasana A, B, C and D mukta hasta sirsasana A, B, C) within the context of short routines. We use group work to support the development of these postures using tristana (breath, bandha, dristi) whilst stimulating both sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Come and try out the king of yoga postures in a supportive environment and be ready for a sahasrara explosion.

BABY MASSAGE - 6 WEEK COURSE

with Louise Bowden

6 weeks 

11.00am - 12.00noon

We are offering a chance to learn how to massage your baby in warm, nurturing and relaxed environment. A lovely way for you to bond and spend time with your baby, it is a six week programme for babies from birth to 1 year.

The programme will teach you the skills to help relieve your baby from wind, colic, constipation and teething discomfort. It will allow you some special time with them helping you both to feel closer and support your growing relationship. It will also help you to gain a deeper understanding of your baby’s behaviour, crying and body language. It is a great way to soothe, calm and enjoy time with your baby. Long before babies are able to speak they are communicating with the world around them through various ways, one of these being touch. The power of touch to soothe and heal is instinctive, if a baby cries for example we often cuddle them and rub their back. Massage is an extension of this natural impulse and is a life long parenting skill.

 

All that we ask for you to bring is a couple of towels or blankets and an extra drink as babies can get thirsty and hungry after they have been massaged. We will supply oils and mats.

KIRTAN

with Landa Love

Fridays monthly

7.30pm - 9.00pm

11/12

No singing experience is necessary to enjoy Kirtan; you are welcomed into a joyful, supportive environment, which is open to all.

Bhakti Yoga is the yogic path of love and devotion and Kirtan/Devotional Singing is the musical expression of this. It facilitates a connection with the vibration of the heart and heartful expression.

During this musical yoga of the heart, after a yoga style warm up, we sing devotional songs and spiritually uplifting mantras which connect us to the ever present, vibrating field of love in a highly tangible way.

Kirtan chanting is a form of meditation. Think of it as ‘mindful singing’. Chanting uses mantra to focus the mind and create a state of heart-opening vibratory bliss.

People have been chanting the names of the divine for thousands of years. It’s an experience that opens the heart and everyone is encouraged to participate. Even beginners, and anyone new to singing in a group, will feel the joy of connection to spirit as you are lead through learning and chanting the ancient sacred names and mantras.

This devotional singing expression of Bhakti Yoga has a unique capacity to release long-held emotions, blocks and trauma; Walls constructed long ago come crumbling down. Wounds that we never knew were there begin to heal. Long-submerged emotions come to the surface. As we sing, we immerse ourselves in an endless river of prayer. And we effortlessly move into a meditative state that creates a safe haven for the flower of the heart to unfold.

The harmonium produces a unique sound that merges seamlessly with the voice, guides the chanting, holds the voices and encourages various harmonies to emerge within the group. As an acoustic instrument, played by the movement of air, it is the perfect yogic instrument; it becomes one with the musician and feels like a living, breathing member of the group.

As we co-create this field of sacred sound and share this experience of opening to love, the mind stills, we have a direct experience of our own energy and the energy field around us and can feel a sense of unity and oneness.

 

Places must be booked online.
