OTHER YIN YOGA WORKSHOPS

 

1. YIN YOGA & MYOFASCIAL RELEASE RETREAT (2.5 hours) – HERE
Unlimited replays with 12 months access

Join me for a deep and restful Yin Yoga & Myofascial Release Retreat.

You’ll need a thick warm blanket and a soft fleecy one, a bolster, bricks or books, 2 small balls (like tennis balls), giant ball or chair, eye pillow and semi-filled hot water bottle optional.

 

2. YIN YANG YOGA RETREAT – HERE
Unlimited replays with 12 months access

Take some time out for yourself to enjoy a full workshop of deep Yin Yoga, Somatic movement and rest boosting your energy levels.

The retreat session begins with a led Meditation followed by a somatic Yang Yoga flow, strengthening and enlivening pranic/ qi flow, interspersed with Yin Yoga postures to mobilise qi into the deeper connective tissues then gradually  leading  you into deeper more restful postures to help you  fully restore  your  energy levels. 

This promises to be an uplifting and ultimately restful session giving you ample time for Meditation and transition between postures. Sarah will demonstrate the postures throughout so that you can practice along at the same time.

 

3. THE SPIRIT OF YIN YOGA (3 hours) – HERE
Unlimited replays with 12 months access

The spirit is an essential part of us which is often dimmed with an overactive nervous system. Reigniting this part of ourselves and finding the resource within us to flicker the flame of creativity, spontaneity and joy can be found when we move towards ourselves allowing the nervous system to reset in deep stillness and rest, with our mind/intention guided towards lighting up our spiritual essence.

Sarah will guide you through the meditative process of relighting and remembering this part of yourself through both long held Yin postures in this restorative and nurturing workshop setting a new memory bank within yourself to practice and come home to again and again.

So often in our Yin Yoga practice the message becomes convoluted and we find ourselves trapped in the theory and the science behind Yin Yoga and forget that the essence of the practice is to deeply let go of perceptions, ideals, beliefs and rhetoric and to come home to your own true state physically and mentally. The invitation and reminder to find this again in a beautifully led and safe environment can be the perfect way to rediscover that part of yourself which is inherently free and liberated from the confusion and discontent in life.

Here’s what people said from the workshop today!:-
“That was just bliss. I defintely feel a shift. It is practice for sure to tap into the shift. I am keen to learn more now. Thank you. So beautiful.”

“Hello xx my first session with you xx absolutely amazing xx thank you so much xx a beautiful practice xxx”

“Thank you Sarah for such a lovely healing practice.”

Feedback
“I have never done a practice where I’ve felt so relaxed with a lightness of being.”.

The heart, the ‘queen’ of our emotions and the one when in balance allows us to feel a deeper sense of ease and satisfaction in our lives, what we could come to learn as our version of happiness. When it is out of balance it can affect every aspect of our lives.

5. YIN YOGA & COMPASSION (3 hours)


EDUCATIONAL SLIDES PROVIDED THROUGHOUT

Join me for a Yin Yoga and Meditation workshop. The cultivation of compassion is at the heart of our inward journey in yin yoga. Practicing how to cultivate compassion can seem elusive let alone trying to explain how to do this in our teachings. Science has shown that a truly compassionate view improves our mindset and overall mood which has a direct effect on the health of our heart. Wouldn’t we all want others to be free from suffering and to help others be free?

This workshop will offer helpful practices with explanatory slides on the practice and sequence to guide you in cultivating deeper compassion to help forge the way to a happier contentment, stability and connectivity with ourselves and most importantly with others too.

“Thank you Sarah,
For an amazing, powerful workshop.
I felt really relaxed and so grateful to be guided by your voice.
I just realised it’s so crucial to fill in our own cups before attending to others. And you held the space  for that today. Reminding us compassion isn’t just an emotion but so much more.”

It takes a huge amount of courage to take a closer look at the dissatisfaction of our lives and it’s not possible to just use the word compassion as an antidote to our difficulties or to just turn it on or off. Being together as a group can help to provide the motivation and inspiration to remember to include compassion in our daily practice and to feel the difference this makes to our day.
