Moon Sequence (Chandra Krama)
Full Weekend Workshop
Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th February 2019
Yoga Fleur, 356 Fishponds Road Bristol BS5 6RB
An immersive weekend of exploring the perfect compliment to your dynamic yoga practice
Having recently gained authorisation to be one of the few teachers based in the UK to teach Matthew Sweeney's Moon Sequence, Eleanor invites you to immerse yourself into the flow of self exploration through the body, mind and breath over a full weekend.
This is a gentle, flowing sequence that both opens and strengthens an area we all identify with as being a challenge: the hips.
By drawing from over 7 years of teaching, and more recent training in Remedial Massage, Eleanor will explain the importance of hip mobility, strength and flexibility for better posture, functional movement and good health both on and off the mat. Having the luxury of a full weekend will also allow us the time to go beyond the physical and explore the fascinating realms of pranayama (breathing techniques) and dhyana (contemplation and enquiry).
Whether you are just starting on your yogic journey or whether you are a seasoned practitioner, Eleanor welcomes you along to share the benefits of this wonderful practice and some of Matthew's insightful teachings. After a weekend of familiarising yourself with the sequence, you'll be fully equipped to integrate this into your self practice... or come and join in the weekly Led Moon Sequence class starting Wednesday 9th January 2019 (more details soon!)

Mastering the Jump Back
Thursday 31st January 2019
Bristol City Yoga, Backfields Lane, Stokes Croft
In this masterclass, Eleanor will take her experience and knowledge from the Ashtanga yoga method to explore the actions and movements of the jumping backwards from standing or seated poses.
Various approaches will be utilised to build awareness of how and where our body needs both flexibility and strength to make the safe steps towards a seamless floating back action to make your Ashtanga or vinyasa practice unfold seamlessly.
This workshop is open to all yogis but a regular practice and a basic understanding of the vinyasa from the Ashtanga method and surya namaskar (sun salutation) will be valuable.
