Nourishing Seasonal Workshops

Workshops with a focus on improving self-care, through experiencing the effects of meditative and mindfulness practices, and taking home suggestions for easy ways to start to incorporate these powerful practices your daily life.

Each workshop is unique, according to the season, but has an underlying structure of Zen yoga (mindful movement), meditation and Yoga Nidra (sleep yoga). Zen yoga is influenced by the oriental system 5 Element system of medicine, so we work with nourishing the organ systems associated with each of the five seasons – a lovely way to focus your self-care throughout the year.

Physically you need to be able to get up and down from a yoga mat – flexibility and experience of yoga is not needed.

Some of the many benefits:

Bring your duvet, pillows, blankets – whatever you need to be really comfortable lying on the floor for an hour. You can’t do it wrong – just listen and enjoy.
