6:00pm-8:00pm GMT, £25, on Zoom
Over these past three years, many of us have struggled with the reality and the aftermath of the pandemic and the toll it’s taken on our ways of thinking, feeling, working, socializing and planning. Using breathing, relaxation and simple meditation techniques, we’ll notice the myriad of thoughts and emotions rippling through us and practise discerning which tracks to follow – the road not usually taken? or no road? – and how to ground, move and stretch for utmost
succour, release, kindness and satisfaction for body and mind.
Creating Space for Bandhas, using Movement, Pranayama and Relaxation: a yoga workshop with Monica Voss on Zoom UK
Saturday, December 2
10:00am-1:30pm GMT, £40, on Zoom
The usual translation of the Sanskrit term ‘bandha’ is ‘lock’, which suggests closure, control, even confinement. Another definition, I’m told, is ‘connection’ within the body and between earth and sky. Using relaxation and simple meditation techniques, generous movement, breathing and yoga poses, we’ll practise creating spaciousness and freedom. We’ll locate and release the area of the bandhas and discover how they interact. We’ll learn how accessing the bandhas gently and carefully contributes to increased circulation, equilibrium and energy. There will be time for personal exploration and Q&A. Please join – everyone is welcome!
