Master Classes and Workshops for Focus

Yoga Workshops and Master Classes 2020

Kick start your New Year with a gentle, kind and loving way to feel not the body that has been so active over the holidays and a mind that may benefit from something slow and delicious.  Allow yourself to take time for YOU.

When we take more time to focus we begin to feel deeper into the benefits of our yoga practise and the natural dynamic that comes from slowing it all down.  This brings confidence to enter the intensity that washes over in the stillness and  from the meditative ease of  breathing.  In this we receive what yoga is,  being present.  Yoga Workshops are worth taking the time, for they never stop giving.

It is true what they in that 1920’s negro spiritual song .. “Neck bone connected from the shoulder bone, shoulder bone connected from the back bone, back bone .. “.   This goes beyond the body.  Everything we are think and do is connected and that includes, mobility in the body as well as movement in the mind.

In this workshop we will look at interconnectedness.  We know the pain of feeling disconnect.  So no better way than to end with a coming together, a unity of yoga that is Yoga Nidra.

Fee:

Just as everything in life, the body, the universe and nature is interconnected, we call this the non dual teachings the are tantric in nature. From a yoga perspective this may be referred to as Tantric Yoga.  Within this focus, we may also include our joints.  Joints are complicated.  They offer the body a way of direction, a different kind of mobility to joints and ligaments.  Symbolically joints may be likened to how we take direction.  If we go too far there is pain in the skeleton and musculature, or even damage to a joint which may then hold us back in life as it echoes a level of ‘pain’ and to re-consider our options.

In this workshop we will look at options we often take in yoga that may be out of habit rather than being ‘good’ for the joints. We will explore how empowering feeling into a joint and making a different choice feels as opposed to ‘overdoing’ or hyperextension.

Yoga is about finding space, whether we call it peace of mind, sense of ease in the body or a sense of connecting to the universe or even simply something greater than what goes on inside a busy mind.

In this ‘dance’ we will explore the seasons through our sense of touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste guided by a natural pulse that drives our need to move and to be still as we listen and feel into an eclectic mix of world sounds.  Suitable for every body.  No experience needed, just curiosity.

Dec 6 Rainbow Warrior Chakra Dance Workshops

Venue:  Tythe Barn RH12 5JF
Time:    
1030-1230
Fee:    
   £20

We are made up of a system of ‘energy’ field that may be felt as ‘a dance’ beyond the physical body.  In this workshop we will explore the seven main elements of this system known as the Chakras.  In reality there are hundred and thousands of these chakras, or nerve plexuses that make up our energy field.  

We will relate to our personal system through colour, sound, breath, movement and stillness.  No experience needed just a willingness to be with your ‘Self’ no matter what moves, changes, arises, falls and dissolves back to whence it first came.  We will end with an all encompassing meditation.

Thank you very much Kathryn for a really enjoyable Yoga Workshop, liberating both physically and mentally.   Qi Gong felt natural, warming and loosening specially working outside. I loved the free movement.  At the end the yoga nidra was so absorbing I felt transported and I came home feeling renewed.  Zee

Enlightening yoga workshop which has enabled me to start to understand the need to live in the present through the body and the breath, and resist the pull of the ever-chattering mind which can live in the past and the future, thereby re-writing historical facts or distort the future. The present does neither of these things; it is simply that, the present. The other key takeaway for me was a sense of compassion both for those around the room and for myself. This was experienced through the listening sessions. Quietening the mind facilitates the capacity to truly listen to others and connect with my own heart with compassion.
