Opening doorways to the intelligent heart of our body

Our bodies are designed to move and they love to move! Dynamic movement practices such as Yoga and 5Rhythms dance involving non-habitual movement, are now known to be especially beneficial for our holistic health.

When we move our body we not only feel physically enlivened, but our moods can lighten and shift, our mind can feel more spacious and we can connect with a sense of our soulful being. The simple act of engaging in conscious movement practices has a profound effect on every aspect of our life and living.

This is the power and wisdom of the moving body.

This weekend, with the guiding lights of 5Rhythms Dance and Yoga, we open doorways to the inherent intelligence of our being and our own transformative potential.

This workshop is accessible to all those with a willingness to move.

First session on Friday 7.30pm  (Dinner 6pm)
Finishing on Sunday 3pm

For the Friday evening … the Art of Resting Restorative Yoga

In this evening of Restorative Yoga, Neal offers a space to in which to spend a few delicious hours resting and relaxing. You will discover easy practices that may profoundly release shoulder and neck tension and ease back pain.

The session will include Restorative Yoga practices as well as iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation.

On Saturday and Sunday we continue with Dynamic Alignment:

But what is alignment? And why might it be important?

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras suggest that the posture of the body should be steady and stable, comfortable and easeful. That our posture and movement may be in a good space. The steadiness may be connected to strength, to being grounded, and the easefulness may be connected to being fluid, responsive, free of excess tension. Together, these two qualities of posture may bring us towards balance.

We can make these principles our primary focus when practicing Yoga. It is important to remember though that, as living beings, we are moving beings – posture is never static. We are in fact always moving – the rhythm and oscillation of our breath, the beating heart, we move through space, the moment to moment re-organisation of our relationship to gravity, ground and space, and much more.

In this workshop we let go of “holding” a posture and instead practice Yoga as a process, as self-enquiry, where each movement is like an open question. Rather than Yoga being about how far we can go, we cultivate an easy curiosity with how we go.
