  • Yoga and Meditation WorkshopSaturday 31st January 2015

    ‘Let go of the old and bring in the new’

    A Yoga and Meditation Workshop
    with Sallie & Sunnah Rose

    Saturday January 31st 2015, 2pm – 5:30pm

    ‘Let go of the old and bring in the new’

    New Year can be a wonderful time to make changes in one’s life - a way of reassessing,
    letting go and opening oneself for what is to come.

    Join us for an afternoon of Yoga and Meditation.  We will work mindfully, using gentle yoga postures to encourage our bodies to release tensions that we may be holding on to in a kind and compassionate way.  As the afternoon unfolds we will see where this new freedom will take us using Meditations to focus our minds, open our hearts & release all that is no longer needed in our life.

    There will be an opportunity for tea & a chance to chat.

    All levels are welcome including beginners.

    Cost: £35

    Location: Holy Trinity Church, Church Lane, N2 0TH

    Yoga
    Sunnah teaches a combination of Hatha and gentle Vinyasa yoga to release the spine, tone and mobilise the body and help generate a healthier and clearer mind.

All are welcome including complete beginners and pregnant ladies.

    Meditation
    Sallie teaches Mindfulness Meditation. This practice helps you to deal with life’s stresses in a calm and centred way. By developing a regular practice you will experience increased awareness, feel more present, more connected and able to cope with the inevitable challenges that occur.

    Meditation involves amongst other things focussing on the breath as the object of concentration. In this way we learn to train the mind, reduce stress and deepen our awareness.
