Winter a magical season and a time for nurturing, self reflection and rest. However we seem to do anything but, as the festive season sees us burning the candle at both ends. It’s no wonder we find ourselves comprised and exhausted.
So why not give yourselves a well deserved break and join me for an opportunity to explore the self through movement, relaxation and meditation. The yoga will include slow vinyasa flow, and grounding restorative postures to release any accumulated tension and restore balance. We will complete the afternoon with an aromatherapy infused Yoga Nidra (often referred to as yogic sleep) to fully relax the senses and to set an intention (sankalpa) for the season ahead. Workshop includes herbal tea on arrival and healthy treat to finish.
2pm – 430pm Saturday 21st December 2019
Held at Hale Yoga Studio, Ashley Road, Hale WA15 9SD
Workshop costs £25 – booking is necessary as this is a small studio and spaces are limited. Book via the Button below
Enjoy this free recording of the Mantra So Hum. This mantra can be used during your meditation or yoga practice as a way of quietening the mind. So Hum translates to I am that – I am that ultimate reality or ever pervading presence that exist within us all.
Begin by chanting a few rounds out loud then go into silent chants mirroring the breath to each sound. e.g So – on the inhale and Hum – on the exhale
Take as many rounds as you like, then sit for a while at the end of your practice to soak all the sensations from this mantra in.
Yin Yoga for Deep Rest – upon arrival you will be greeted with a relaxing herbal tea. We will then begin the practice with a seated meditation to find stillness preparing us for a grounding Yin Yoga flow.

We end the session with an aromatherapy infused Savasana and Yoga Nidra (guided Relaxation)

Enjoy this Buddhist inspired meditation using the mantra Om Ah Hum for inner peace and calm.
The mantra is chanted silently with each sound representing a different part of the breath. The sound Om is chanted in the inhale and held at the heart centre to cleanse our physical body. Ah is then for the speech and chanted between the inhale and exhale the awareness of this sound is held at the throat for clarity in our speech, and finally the Hum sound is for the mind inspiring a sense of peace and chanted silently on the exhale.
Listen below for further guidance and this blissful mantra that purifies our body, speech and mind
The Ganesh Mantra one of my favourite mantras and one I use for when I personally feel unsteady and in need of grounding.
Ganesh is the god of beginnings and the remover of obstacles. We turn to Ganesh when we feel we need guidance on our path. Perhaps there’s a lot of change occurring in your life or you’re going through some kind of transition, making you feel unstable and in need of grounding. If this is the case then this mantra is perfect for grounding us back down to earth. With the head of an elephant on the body of a teenage boy, Ganesh represents, strength, courage, willpower and wisdom as he uses his trunk to clear the way of obstacles from his path. You too can embody the qualities of this deity to find your own inner power.
During this meditation we’ll recite the mantra Om Glaum Gam Ganapataye Swaha 9 times however you can do this for the full 108.
