What it’s all about?
Late summer is the ideal time to nurture our souls as we leave the warmth and joy of the summer, and head into the cooler seasons of the year. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, late summer is associated with the earth element and the sense of taste. This season is a time to draw our energies in, take stock of all that we’ve achieved this year and to reap the benefits of all our hard work. The earth element is the perfect opportunity to setup some routines and self-care practises to support us through the winter as we boost our immunity to help stave off seasonal colds and flus. And there’s no better way to engage in a bit of self-care than some yoga, and some chocolate!

What can I expect from this workshop?
We will embrace the earth element by using specially selected chocolate to helps us engage in a little nurturing during this Yin Yoga Workshop. A grounding practise will help us to make the transition between the seasons and begin to embrace a slower pace of life. As we enjoy some chocolate while practicing yoga, we can expect a greater sense of connection as we focus on the taste and melting sensations of the chocolate. This will take us into the heart of the present moment where we can experience a true union of mind, body and spirit. This is the essence of yoga and the source of self-care.
We will end our time together with a guided Yoga Nidra practise. Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep and offers a deeply meditative experience for the whole body and mind. . If you are looking for a chance to truly switch your focus inside and experience yoga in the present moment – then this is the workshop for you.

What do I need to bring?
Please bring your own yoga mat and any props you may wish to use, including a blanket for relaxation. Blocks and yoga straps will be used during this class and will be available to borrow if you don’t have your own.

Is this suitable for beginners?
This workshop is a perfect introduction to the earth element and working with the energies of the season. Some yoga experience would be preferred to allow you to fully immerse yourself in the workshop. Please get in touch if you are unsure about taking part.

** All chocolate offered will be of a high cocoa content and we aim to provide Vegan-friendly products. If you have concerns about the chocolate being offered at this workshop, please get in touch with me.
