From 9th June

These three sessions are an invitation to practice Yoga from the perspective of Listening Within. The Yoga will have elements of Hatha and Yin Yoga, of exploring the rhythm of Breath and awareness, of working with what we can feel and how to let go into a posture.

Its a practice of Being, Feeling/Sensing and Permission to Act (i.e. after some Yin postures you’ll feel like making sound or ‘appreciative groaning’ one might say!). In other words, we are addressing the themes of the first three chakra in the process which are to Be, to Feel and to Act (i.e. choose).
