Celebrate International Women’s Day with our yoga workshop in aid of ActionAid
Friday 12th March 2021 – 7pm
This year for International Women’s Day we have partnered up with our friends at Yogamatters to offer you an evening of yoga, meditation and self introspection. This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #ChooseToChallenge, and throughout this two hour workshop we’ll be tuning inwards and exploring how we can choose to challenge and stand up for equality. Change starts from within!
The workshop will be guided by Movement for Modern Life yoga teachers Gabriella Espinosa and Yvonne O’Garro, who will take us on a journey through mind body and soul. It is open to everyone and suitable to all levels and abilities.
Embodied Movement and Intention Setting Practice with Gabriella
Gabriella will guide your through a gentle embodied movement practice to create a stronger connection between your body, your emotions and your mind. This will be followed by a guided visualisation and intention setting practice to inspire you to choose to challenge.
Restorative Yoga practice & Poetry reading with Yvonne
Restorative yoga is a deeply restful practice that requires stillness from you. When the body is relaxed, you feel rested which is likely to provide an increased sense of wellbeing. During the session, Yvonne will share some beautifully inspired poetry alongside guiding you into 4 or 5 postures, providing the body with a total sense of ease, supporting you to choose to challenge.
We are really excited to be running this International Women’s Day event in aid of ActionAid; an international charity supporting women and girls living in poverty.
The two hour workshop will run from 7pm to 9pm and will be hosted on Zoom. It will comprise:
- Welcome and introduction from MFML and Yogamatters
