This workshop takes a look at how we can promote better sleep and when we just can't get it, how to rest and relax to compensate.

This class is perfect for yogis who would like to improve their flexibility. We explore poses that will open the hips and stretch the legs, shoulders and spine.

Shamanic journey group with Angie Litvinoff - Saturday 24th June

 

Saturday 24th June,  2.30-5pm
 
The root of shamanic journeying is ancient, and most associated with the Native American traditions. Through the beat of a drum which creates a calming meditative rhythm achieving a 'Theta' state, the participants lie down with eyes closed and go through a process which is guided through drumming. Whilst lying down, each person goes through a solo 'journey' which takes them into a realm described as non-ordinary reality. This process and realm happens spontaneously, and this ancient practice leads the person to undergo an experience where in a protective calm and nurturing space they can get their own answers to empowering questions.

Instead of ploughing your way through another yoga class, skimming over difficult aspects of practice like the Chaturanga, which most people do often without realising,
take the opportunity in this detailed workshop to spend some time discovering how to practice in a way that is not only therapeutic, progressive, and immensely gentle, but develops true strength in a gradual and intelligent manner which will sustain a lifetime of practice. This is not often taught in traditional classes or workshops.
