Saturday 17th July – 10am-12pm
Create balance between effort and effortlessness
In this two hour workshop with Kate Walker, we will flow through a full body yoga class with guided relaxation to target the hips, shoulders and neck.
The yoga class will build slowly and steadily to thoroughly strengthen and stretch the body from tip to toe. We’ll side bend, twist, forward bend and back bend with options given at every turn to suit all levels. We move with breath and mindful awareness so that, as we unstick the stuck in the body, we anchor our mind to arrive fully into the here and now.
After we’ve moved, breathed, stretched and strengthened, we’ll take it down into a carefully crafted short restorative sequence using props found around every home – towels, blankets and pillows to help shed stress, anxiety and mental tension. Ending with a delicious guided relaxation, you’ll feel cleansed, light, relaxed and clear, in body mind and spirit. This beautiful class with help you create balance – between strength and softness, effort and effortlessness.
