Part of the Breath and Embodiment Workshop Series
Do you find it hard to rest and give yourself the time and space to recover? Do you wish you could clear your mind and find deep relaxation in your body?
It’s really important to recognise the cycles and seasons of the year and our lives. It’s been a pretty tough year when many of us have been at home more but still feel as though we’ve been on constant alert and at risk of overwhelm. Supporting ourselves through this means finding our own way to deeply rest, replenish our energy and to feel we have the momentum to move forward in a positive and hopeful way to 2021.
In this two-hour workshop, we will explore the seasons and cycles of our everyday lives, using practical, embodied exercises to gain awareness and find a richer range of choice and permission in how to rest and recover.
- Exploring the seasons model and how it can inform our everyday lives
- Using movement, play and posture to gain awareness of our own patterns around the seasons and rest
- Creating our own personal energy map
- Learning how to identify and work effectively with different activities, whether they gobble, munch or nibble at our energy
- Finding new ways to replenish and recover our vitality
- A full yoga nidra session for deep relaxation and to tap into our innate creativity through rest
- Using the winter as a time to recover and prepare for the oncoming spring
What you will gain from joining us at this event:
- An understanding of how living in alignment with the seasons and cycles of the year can help you live a richer life with more choice
- Deeper awareness of your own behaviour patterns, where you get stuck in them, and tools to help you shift when they are not serving you
- A clear picture of how your own personal energy levels shift during the day and how to manage your time and tasks to maximise energy levels
- Experience a deeply restful state where you can access fresh ideas and new ways of looking at your life
- Practical embodied tools to take away and use to support your rest and recovery
