WORKSHOPS

Experiential workshops pave the way for an exploration of yoga through practice and theory. Creative and insightful, workshops are an opportunity to take time for ourselves in a peaceful environment.

 

Through movement and breath, sound and stillness we will explore just some of the many possibilities that yoga can bring both on and off the mat.

June 2021
19th June – Pause for the Sun – A day to Honour the Summer Solstice in community.

 

To celebrate the longest day of the year, and our chance to come together in community I am offering two events to honour this special occasion:

 

Part 1: FREE EVENT: Solstice sunrise walk to Mellor Cross – 3.30am-6.30am.

 

Raising money for Sharewear Clothing scheme, helping to raise awareness for clothing poverty in the UK.

 

A guided, peaceful walk to one of the highest and most iconic viewpoints around; Mellor Cross. Some of this walk will be taken in silence and form a walking meditation as we absorb the sounds of nature and notice the subtle changes in light as we go. Upon reaching Mellor Cross we will take in the view and the power of dawn breaking. We will practice a short meditation, reflecting upon the qualities of the sun and our deep connection with nature.

 

When we have completed I will guide a short movement practice to prepare ourselves for the walk back to our meeting point, or you are welcome to take yourselves peacefully home in your own direction.

 

This walk will be accompanied by Karen Webber who will help me to co-ordinate the group, numbers are limited to 30.

 

You will need a head-torch and suitable footwear for this event. Please read the full disclosure before confirming your place. 

 

Book via Eventbrite

Part 2: Pause for the Sun – A 3 hour yoga retreat

 

2.30-5.30pm, St. Martin’s Church Hall, Brabyns Brow, Marple Bridge.

 

Celebrate the Summer Solstice in a guided yoga workshop inspired by the Sun.

 

This transformative afternoon will be anchored in the deep tradition of yoga and inspired by nature, creativity and seasonal change.

 

The Summer solstice is as an opening into the second half of the year and provides us with an opportunity to pause and reflect upon the journey so far. As the sun stands still and changes direction so to can we, noticing the beauty of nature’s response and that of our own.

 

Through yoga we can take a mindful approach towards connecting to our internal rhythms and breath, whilst generating heat and inner strength before setting time aside to let go and listen inwardly to our own transformations. 

 

This is space and time for self-care; to connect to intention, to uplift and to celebrate wholeness. Transformative practices enable space to boost confidence, energy and lift mood as well as expand our own sense of potential and possibility.

About the approach

 

In every yoga class Helen invites us to move and breathe in ways that are supportive and joyful, connecting to new and helpful movement patterns whilst letting go of deeply held tensions.

 

There is always time spent in some form of breath-work, meditation and deep stillness as well as the option to use sound and mantra. You will also have the opportunity to share and discuss your experiences as a group.

I recently attended a yoga workshop with Helen. She is so calm, open and knowledgable. A true Yogi. I would highly recommend a class or workshop for anyone interested in finding out more about the amazing benefits of yoga.
