Joyful & Open: An Autumn Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshop

Saturday 16th October 2021 | 2.00 to 4.15pm | *£20 recommended price

(*sliding scale pricing available – see below)

Venue:  Online via Zoom

A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS (AT LEAST 50%) FROM THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE DONATED TO LOCAL CHARITY, BRIXTON SOUP KITCHEN.

My seasonal yoga workshop series continues with this Autumn-themed practice:

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there are Five Elements that are central to nature’s cycles and are reflected in the cycles of our bodies. They are Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth, and each element is connected to a specific season, organ system and emotion.

Metal is linked to Autumn and the Lungs and Large Intestine – all are about transformation. Just as Autumn is a time when nature begins to draw its energy inwards to prepare for the colder, darker months ahead, precious metals can be found deep in the earth ready to be discovered and transformed without ever losing their true essence.

Part one of this workshop will be a Lung and Large Intestine yin yoga practice, where physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together). In this slow practice, each pose typically lasts for three to five minutes. This will prepare us for part two of the workshop – a yoga nidra practice.

Imbalanced Lung and Large Intestine Qi (energy) can manifest as respiratory problems, sadness, fatigue, low immunity and colds. When Lung Qi is balanced we feel present, optimistic and more able to face life’s ups and downs with acceptance and courage.

This workshop is open to all levels, but it is not suitable for pregnant students.

Feedback for previous Seasonal Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshops:

“Thank you so much for the Nurture & Nourish yoga session today. As a perimenopausal woman close to burnout with some full on events concerning my son’s health I can honestly say that I joined the session feeling so jangled and desperate to get out of fight and flight, and left the session feeling totally calm and restored. I feel like I’m me again. I love your work.” – Frithe

“The workshop was really special for me and you held the space so beautifully. I have been trying some of the poses you taught at home.” – Leila

Feedback for The Rest Sessions:

“That was really great Paula, thank you! I have C-PTSD and typically struggle quite a lot with calming my nervous system and being present during contemplative type practices. I found this really really effective and definitely want to carry it on.” – M

“Thank you so much for that practice Paula! That was so nourishing and wonderful – exactly what I needed.” – Yvonne

“Thank you Paula! I absolutely love your offerings and feel so relaxed and ‘at home’ when I take your classes. You have a gift for holding the space. Your classes are just really special.” – Deb

“I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for the session on Saturday. It was wonderful, and I didn’t realise how much I needed it until I was there. I also wanted to say that I really appreciated your approach (caveat, I am also a yoga teacher). I find that many classes I attend are not permissive and do not allow for the personal exploration or autonomy that I really value in the practice/teaching of yoga. I felt so safe in your class, and learned so much, while at the same time feeling that I could adapt the practice to what I needed it to be. Thank you so very much, it really meant a lot to me on Saturday, and I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed it and how much I appreciated the space that you held for all of us.” – Lauren
