Unless stated otherwise they are £15.
"The word OM is the Universe. Everything that exists in the past, present and future is OM. And that which exists beyond the threefold division of time is OM" ~ Mandukyo Upanishad
We use OM in every class, but this moring I will explain a little more about it and the actual symbol. You will also use asana with OM and we will incorporate OM into our pranayama practice. No session on OM would be complete without chanting OM, so we will have some fun around that.
~13.00 to 16.00~
For those that wish to stay we are having a 'crafting' session during the afternoon. The idea is that we eat our own packed lunches and then share crafting skills. Do let me know if you are coming...just some fun time to share skills. Think we have knitters, crochet, beadwork, sewing, painting....
November 28th - 10am to 12.30pm - Stillness and Dynamism
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.
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.
