Autumn Equinox Weekend Yoga Workshop - Sunday 8th October 2017

  • Yoga Squirrel The Sanctuary Workshops, Sanvey Lane, Aylestone Leicester LE2 8NG (map)

The autumn equinox signifies balance, where the day and night are of equal length. As we gently move into autumn, watching the leaves change into golden hues of yellow, orange and red, feeling a slight chill in the air as we rise in the crisp mornings and return home to comfort and warmth in the evenings, we begin to feel drawn to the cosier things in life. But we may also feel a slight unease at the change of the season, as with change, we come into the unknown. This workshop will focus on rooting to the earth, feeling centred and balanced working through a sequence of grounding postures to help nurture and comfort our minds and bodies. An opportunity to reflect upon non-permanence and acceptance of the seasonal change. A reflective, restorative practice working on identifying subtitles in familiar poses, finding balance between comfort and effort. The physical practice will be followed by a guided breathing practice and an autumnal themed meditation. 

• Please bring mats, blankets, extra layers and socks to stay warm and cosy in the breathing and mediation part of the workshop... I'll bring everything else! 

• The workshop is perhaps more suited to practioners with some previous experience of yoga, but beginners will also benefit from the practice.

• The workshop will involve holding natural objects during the meditation and also may include subtle scents or incense in the room. If you have any allergies or dislikes to certain objects and fragrances, please let me know beforehand.
