Immerse yourself in 90 minutes of invigorating Yoga flow designed to bring balance to mind and body.
Taking time out for yoga and meditation has proven benefits for your immune system and mental wellbeing. This nurturing group yoga class, held in the spacious event space at The Swan and overlooking the river, will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready for the New Year.
This class will lead you gently through a series of poses with variations offered to suit all levels. Yoga strengthens and tones the body, improves flexibility and a general sense of wellbeing. The closing meditation will help clear the mind and prepare you for the year ahead.
This workshop is run by Grace & Gravity, our in house Yoga partners. Your teacher is Suze. With a background in dance, capoeira and as a fitness professional, when Suze first began practising yoga, her main focus was on the well-being of the physical body. However, regular yoga practice showed her that the physical benefits were only a small, but important, part of the impact Yoga had on her.
Through self-study Suze found that life’s experiences can really get stuck and ‘calcify’ in the nooks and crannies of one’s body over the years. As the physical practice began to free her body, it brought an understanding of the roots of the emotional baggage that had caused the blockage in the physical and energetic body. Her focus shifted to accommodate the importance of meditating and being present, and how getting to the bottom of thought and behavioural patterns, feelings and emotions, may also result in the release of tension in the physical body.
In her classes Suze encourages self-awareness and aims to create an environment where everybody can leave frustrations and competitiveness behind, be in tune with their ‘present’ body, and focus on the breath that has the incredible power of restoring body, mind and soul.
Please bring your own yoga mat along with anything else that makes you comfortable – blanket, bolster, pillow.
The workshop will last approx. 90 mins, after which we will enjoy a restorative and replenishing light lunch together.
