DEPRESSION: A HELPING HAND WITH YIN YOGA

A Yin Yoga workshop to help you find balance

 

 

 

Join Eleanor for a quiet afternoon of exploring practical methods to manage depression through a blend of yoga poses, breathing techniques and guided meditation to help you rediscover balance and peace.

 

Depression is not something to be ignored – it is on the rise within our society. In England alone, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week (mind.org). Though yoga in of itself is not a cure, mental health issues such as depression or anxiety could benefit greatly from using a holistic approach to their management. In this workshop Eleanor will share some simple practical solutions that she herself has found invaluable in her own daily life when finding herself entering into an anxious or stressful state.

 

The Yin Yoga style is one that offers a slow, deep practice helping you dig into the connective tissues that surround the joints and help release unnecessary and unconscious tension. For this release to occur, the poses in Yin Yoga are held for a few minutes at a time as you are encouraged to approach things slowly and gently to observe the correlation between mind and body. This workshop will also blend some supported standing poses to help lift moods, find strength and draw confidence in standing tall.

 

All levels of practitioners, from any school of yoga are welcome to join in the workshop to help restore balance and equanimity in their life.

 

Please notify me should you have any injuries/medical conditions that will affect your practice upon booking.

A CHANDRA KRAMA: THE MOON SEQUENCE

 

"By utterly connecting with your present feeling you can transform all that you are, and begin to realise one Universal truth: you are perfect already, here and now..."  - Matthew Sweeney

 

 

 

 

Chandra Krama, or the Moon Sequence, was developed by Matthew Sweeney to encourage a more holistic approach for his students' yoga practice.  The grounding and nurturing nature of this sequence introduces an intuitive and compassionate approach that really allows the student to honestly and fully meet themselves in each posture with acceptance and kindness.  

 

Laura has been studying yoga with Matthew Sweeney since 2011, and her introduction to the Moon Sequence and meditation revolutionised her practice.  The workshop is an afternoon spent in exploring and deepening our understanding of self.  Starting with a gentle meditation and pranayama a spaciousness is created through which a connection of the breath with movement is established.  Laura then guides the class through the sequence, which focuses primarily on the lower body, and finishes with deep relaxation and an opportunity to discuss aspects of the sequence.  Her sharing of the sequence is an authentic expression of her own experience of self-exploration and discovery of unconditional love and compassion.
