WORKSHOPS & COURSES

Restoring Equilibrium Workshop with Renee Jones at Embody Wellness

Yin Yoga Workshop: Restoring Equilibrium

Saturday 10th October | 2.45pm to 4.15pm | £20
Has ‘survival mode’ become the new normal? It’s no surprise that the body and mind might manifest the stresses and challenges faced this year. For many the answer is physical exercise such as running which releases endorphins to momentarily make us feel better, but if the body is already in fight or flight this signals to the body that we are still in danger, and keeps us in a state of overdrive.
 
To restore balance we need to call on the parasympathetic nervous system. Our rest and digest response, to undo the work of sympathetic division after a stressful situation and to find a state of Yin.
 
This Yin workshop led by Renee Jones will allow us to still the body and quiet the mind. To hold a safe space. To soften, reflect, nurture and unwind.
Yoga for Stress & Self-Compassion with Tash Sekar

Yoga for Stress & Self-Compassion

Sunday 25th October | 1.30pm to 3.30pm | £25
It’s an increasingly well-known fact that stress negatively impacts us on a physiological, emotional and cognitive level, and that it both contributes to and directly causes disease. Understanding how to manage stress at each of these levels is therefore fundamental to achieving and maintaining optimal health and wellbeing.
 
In this workshop led by Tash Sekar you will be guided through a gentle and nourishing yoga sequence with a focus on slow, somatic movements to ease our nervous system out of the ‘fight or flight’ response into a calmer ‘rest and digest’ state. You will come away with a better understanding of why we stress, how stress is stored in the body, and how you can reduce stress with simple yoga practices that help you feel more grounded and relaxed.
