YOGA NIDRA WORKSHOPS - a Practice for Change
with Louise Handy
STUDIO & ONLINE 
Sundays 26th September, 24th October & 21st November 2021 
5.00pm - 6.15pm

A series of short practical workshops looking at the practice and uses of yoga nidra to effect change in our lives.

Whether that desired change is sleeping better, coping with anxiety or changing the habits of a lifetime, yoga nidra can supply the tools to not only relax but also to reprogram ourselves to shed deeply ingrained and learned patterns of behaviour and response.

 

Each session will include some background to nidra and the theory/philosophy behind the practice, and then a 30-40 minute yoga nidra practice.

Attend one, or (even better) all three for fuller understanding and deepening practice. Yoga Nidra Workshop pass available to buy all three for less £££s. 

Choose to join in the studio or live online - use the correct option for your choice in either "Workshops" or "Online Yoga" when booking.

PLEASE NOTE:

This is not a physical practice. No previous yoga or yoga nidra experience needed. All are welcome. 

Yoga nidra is a technique designed to effortlessly guide you into a state of complete "non-doing". Your body is completely relaxed and you can rest in a space where you may enter a state of expanded awareness and deep relaxation, where peace is accessible beyond reliance on external circumstances. It has been shown that a session of nidra is equivalent to up to 4 hours of sleep due to the type of brain waves experienced along the way. This restorative practice can be applied in many different ways, and in these sessions we will explore its use for making change. Whatever you want to get out of it, nidra's regenerative meditative state helps benefit both body and mind, restoring and rejuvenating, for greater mental and emotional balance and resilience. 
 

Why not try it and find the magic...

RHYTHM OF LIFE (Group Sound Therapy)

with Carly Seller

STUDIO EVENTS

Wednesday 15th September 

8.00pm - 9.00pm

Rhythm of Life (Group Sound Therapy)

Wednesday 15th September

 

By reflecting on our daily rhythms, we are able to see where there is rhythmic imbalance in our life. In this dynamic Rhythm of Life session, we use rhythm, movement, and mindfulness to find balance and harmony.

 

Using the sound of the drum, we will explore rhythms and how they impact us on physical, mental and emotional levels. You will be guided to identify the predominant rhythm in your life, and then use a counter rhythm to help restore balance to your system.

 

Carly is currently undertaking her Group Sound Therapy training with BAST (British Academy of Sound Therapy). For some sessions, you may be asked to complete a short questionnaire to contribute towards her case study research.

SILENT YIN
with Jason Searing (skinnibuddha)
STUDIO WORKSHOP
Fridays 1st October, 5th November, 3rd December, 7th January 2021 
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.

Sound offers us a powerful way to explore our resistances and transform them, so that we may find release and return to a feeling of flow in our lives.

 

This Group Sound Therapy session invites you to explore your personal challenges or unhelpful beliefs by combining the therapeutic effects of the sound bath with deep self-reflection techniques, to enable you to gain insight into your personal experience.

 

Sound baths using tonal and rhythmic instruments have been shown to effectively improve health and wellbeing by inducing a deeply relaxed state. All of the instruments I use have specific sound signatures that evoke a range of responses in the body and mind. In this sound bath I will be playing a combination of Himalayan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, sun gong, chimes, and therapeutic percussion.

ARM BALANCE WORKSHOP 2
with Jason Searing (skinnibuddha)
STUDIO WORKSHOP
Saturday 6th November 2021 
10.00am - 12.00noon

Building on the arm balance 1 workshop and back bend work shop this Arm Balance 2 workshop takes arm balances to the next level. One reason arm balances are so challenging is they require both strength and flexibility, so having a regular vinyasa style practice and/or having both strength and flexibility should give your the foundation for you to try out the more demanding set of arm balancing postures.

 

Once your yoga practice starts to leave the ground, you begin to fly and add another dimension to your postures. However many classes do not incorporate advanced arm balances and when they do we have no idea what to do. Technique, alignment and tristana (three elements which bring focus to the posture) are vital for some of the more challenging arm balances. . In addition, learning how to fall without injury (if you haven’t already done that) will be a stepping stone to improving the chances of success in some of the more unusual arm balances.

 

The practice of poses that include weight bearing on the arms not only helps prevent osteoporosis but also builds upper body strength. Arm balances help strengthen the balance reflexes, coordination and propioception.

 

Give yourself a physical challenge and blast the winter away.

 

Postures analysed and explored are:

Pincha Mayurasana (variations), Ganda Bherundasana (chinstand), Devaduuta Panna Asana (fallen angel), Koundinyasana transitions, Mula Check up (wide legs or back pack), Astavakrasana

Galavasana, Vrischikasana (scorpion)

BACKBEND WORKSHOP
with Jason Searing (skinnibuddha)
STUDIO WORKSHOP
Saturday 2nd October 2021 
10.00am - 12.00noon

Back bends open up the front of the body and expose our vulnerable parts, including the heart and organs. Backbends have been associated with fear. Going deep into a backbend can help us over long standing fears and energise the body.

We will explore the safe way to enter back bends and look at which areas of the body need to be engaged and aligned for backbending to take pressure off the spine.

Safe entry and exits for backbending is vital. You will practice step by step techniques in order to achieve this. You will get to practice fascial stretches and anatomical range of motion techniques as a way to reprogramme your brain. The mind may tell you that backbending is impossible but there are shortcircuits to allow backbends to deepen.

Find out what backbends are all about and how they can be incorporated into your personal practice. Postures explored in the workshop are salabasana A and B, ustrasana, bhekasana, danurasana, parsva danurasana, laguvajrasana, kapotasana A and B and urdva danurasana

This workshop is not suitable for anyone with blood pressure issues or spinal injuries. No physical adjustments will be made during covid-19 safety measures
