10am-12:30pm – Standing, Walking, Sitting Still
During most of our waking life, our feet are on the ground. They bear our weight, but more significantly, they are the parts of the body through which we experience the supportive pull of gravity. In this workshop, we will practise Standing Poses as examples of the daily activities of standing, walking, running and sitting and explore the positive, tangible effect of gravitational force on the body. Learn to sit, stand and walk with more connection to the earth and its energy, less effort and greater ease.
1:30pm-4pm – Yoga as Self-Compassion
We all encounter frustrations, experience loss, make mistakes, battle limitations, and fall short of our ideals at times, both in a yoga setting and certainly outside of it.How can we learn to go with the body, not against it and practise yoga and meditation with enjoyment, love and kindness, awareness and self-compassion?Join Monica in an exploration of relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, generous movement and posture, all supporting the development of increased happiness in any life circumstance.
