2.30 -4   - reconnection - breaking free with family constellations  Mark Reeves

Together we will create an exciting space of potential in which we can explore some of the patterns and limiting ways of being that hold us back in life. Constellations provide a very immediate and engaging way for powerful breakthroughs and healing to happen. They reveal the hidden dynamics and can be surprising and empowering in what they bring to light and the issues they can help shift and resolve. Come along and explore any aspect of your life whether that is family, work, relationships, finances, personal projects or anything else.

 

4.30 - 5.30 yoga sutra discussion - Ann Mathie

This workshop will explore the nature of consciousness and the manifestation of our perceived reality (prakṛiti) according to Patañjali.  We will look at how our reality is comprised of the 3 gunas (subtle and gross matter) and how the practice of the eight limbs of yoga has a direct effect on the gunas.  We will look at how and why certain practices provide us with a clear path towards different stages of samadhi or deep absorption resulting in our final liberation or kaivalya.  To conclude, there will be guided meditations to support sensory withdrawal, concentration, meditation and absorption.  There will be a short discussion at the end. 

In Indian culture, there are three pathways to God: 

Yoga Sanskrit, and Music . 

In this workshop we will explore and ancient Indian melody through the teaching method of ,call and response’.

10.30 - 12  - partner yoga - all ages Sharon Gibson

 

12 - 1.30   -   indian singing - Miriam Kisters.

 As Indian music is purely devotional, the act of singing itself is prayer and the purpose is to dedicate yourself to the music. This way, we can get lost in the sound, bringing joy into our singing. 

 

I will begin this workshop by singing a Raga, so you can relax, take in the melody and enjoy.

Following that, we will gently start by exploring breathing and opening up the voice.

 

From  there, I will guide you through the basic melody of the Raga, through call and response. 

 

Indian singing is an amazing experience that is deeply relaxing, nourishing and does wonders for the tone of your voice.
