‘Yoga and Relaxation’ Workshop
10am – 1pm
Relaxation is a skill that can be cultivated. This workshop teaches you techniques to relax both the mind and the body through Yasodhara Hatha Yoga, breathing practices, relaxation techniques and meditation.
This is an opportunity to slow down and reconnect to a place of inner peace and calm.
Yasodhara Yoga integrates classical asanas with spiritual practices of mantra and meditation. These workshops empower students to accept and listen to their bodies. Non-competitive and compassionate, open to all levels.
This is the perfect way to enter in to the dream workshop, calming the mind, and allowing the intuitive and subconscious mind to begin to open.
Vegetarian, gluten-free lunch (organic where possible)
1pm – 2.15pm
Enjoy a delicious and healthy vegetarian lunch, home cooked by Jane.
Enjoy the company of other like-minded individuals in a relaxed and informal setting, held in Jane’s homely, spacious dining room/kitchen or weather permitting, outside on the decking overlooking the garden.
‘Dream Yoga’ Workshop
2.30pm – 4.30pm
The dreaming mind speaks to us in symbols.
In this workshop we will explore our dreams and help to learn the language of the subconscious dreaming mind to see what messages it is trying to tell us.
Our dreaming mind can become our best friend and teacher once we begin to understand its language.
Bring notebook and pen.
N.B. This is not a physical yoga class.
5pm – 5.45pm
A joyful time of Mantra, Meditation, Aarti and Bhajans. Satsang is offered in the Saraswati lineage tradition, and includes aarti, a celebration of light, chanting, and either a talk or a reading on an aspect of spiritual life.
‘Satsang, means literally, “in the company of the wise” – the wise being those who seek a deeper meaning in life and who sincerely want to make progress towards their own ideals’.
‘It is a time of prayer, reflection and chanting, a time to see the personal challenges of life from a different perspective.’
Quote from Time to be Holy by Swami Sivananda Radha.
You can leave at your own pace, either after Saturdays workshops, or on Sunday morning.
It’s possible to extend your stay or arrive earlier, and, to attend different parts of the weekend on a non residential basis depending on availability.
