DROP YOUR MIND INTO YOUR HEART AND MOVE FROM THERE
Opportunity to spend a serene weekend in the beautiful surroundings of Temenos Retreat Centre combined with an introduction to one of the most innovative, rewarding heart-opening movement practices of the 21st century.
FEEL AT HOME IN YOUR BODY
Whether you are an experienced yogi or an absolute beginner, I relish the opportunity to introduce you to this outstanding postural alignment system that has revolutionized my own practice and many others around the world. Wherever you may fit on the movement spectrum, I invite you to bring your Beginners Mind so that we may grow together.
This confidence building practice takes into account that the body is not a linear regimented affair; instead, it is curvy, dynamic, light and springy. This is the Bowspring alignment.
It is yoga in the true sense – the word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root Yuj– to yoke, commonly referred to as union; a united synthesis of body, mind and spirit. This is yoga and this is the effect a Bowspring practice offers.
On Saturday morning we will begin with a short mindfulness practice, after which we will explore the basic principles and movements of this postural alignment system.
If the weather is fine, we have the option to practice in the garden.
In the afternoon we put together what we have learnt so far followed by a guided meditation practice.
The evening is yours, to relax, sit in the beautiful atmospheric Well or simply take a stroll around the gardens, enjoying the evening air.
On Sunday morning, we take a look at what we have learnt so far, putting into practice our new found bodily freedom techniques. We will conclude our practice by setting intentions and walking the labyrinth, followed by a short meditation practice.
Finishing off our workshop at midday.
You may opt to take advantage of a free nights stay in your room at Temenos or use the afternoon to return home.
It is my wish that you go home with a lighter sense of ease and well-being that comes from moving from the heart.
This programme is suitable for all levels and all ages.
