All master classes will be held in Allestree Memorial Hall, 1 Cornhill, Allestree. Derby. DE22 2GG
November 28th - 10am to 12.30pm - Stillness and Dynamism
£15 per session.
Autumn is the season of great change, harvests are coming in and the excess of summer has gone. We start to welcome the opportunity to look inward. Just as the trees release their leaves before tucking in for winter, this is a time for us to create space.
The lungs transform oxygen into energy, and the large intestine releases waste. Energetically, the lungs relate to our ability to accept and move on, while the large intestine helps us cope with separation -- easing us gracefully into the quieter pace of autumn.
So we will work with a practice that is based around Yin yoga to deepen and release. It will be a steady, perhaps slow practice, holding postures a little longer than we normally would...but great to notice how we transform physically and mentally.
The class will include guided meditation and Yoga Nidra.
December 28th - 7.00pm to 9.00pm - Reflections
The call for peace is a powerful means of restoring order and purpose. It calms agitation, strengthens our inner resolve, and nurtures the sense of ease that allows us to perform our actions skillfully, and with full heart.
Come and join me for a class where we will share OM Shanti in a relaxed and nurtured way. Remembering ourselves and honouring those with us and without us. The intention is this will be a deeply relaxing session.
January 16th - 10am to 12.30pm - Meditation for Change
We arrive in 2016, there isn't really any space between 2015 and 2016 but we seem to need to make promises we rarely keep! I get asked a lot about the difference between mindfulness and meditation and even concentration. So lets look at it...what are they all about. We will have time for a discussion on it and how you feel. Then we will take it simply to look at them, with practice and see if we can move towards a simple meditation. For those that already meditate this is a reminder, but itme to practice in a group, which does make your meditation deeper on some levels. So we don't get too caught up in the head I will also use a little sound. There will be a short asana practice.
