    Cultivating Mindfulness through sKum Nye (Tibetan Yoga) with Gretchen Faust

    10-1 Pre-booked/paid £30 per session. Drop-in rate £35.

    An integrated practice that links Buddhist inquiry with the bodymind. It is an excellent for beginners or as an adjunct to an already established Yoga or Meditation practice, as well as having an inherent integrity as a practice in and of itself. Kum Nye cultivates the environment for meditation to arise effortlessly and organically the result of which is the establishment of an embodied presence: physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. It is hard to describe so best just to come along and see if it might be the practice for you! All levels are welcome.

    Yin Fascial Yoga workshop with Dominique Preston

    2-5pm. £30. Please contact Dominique directly to book a place: dominique_100@hotmail.com.

    "Yin Fascial Yoga is a system of yoga that combines elements of Yin Yoga, Myofascial Release, Daoist Yoga and Mindfulness, exploring the many ways we can help release tension, tightness and emotional & physical trauma held within the physical and energetic body.

    In this workshop we will move through a traditional Yin yoga practice, accessing the deeper aspects of the body with long held seated postures, as well as working with eastern movement practices, myofascial release with the use of tennis balls and blocks, and aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine, to stimulate and release tension and energetic blockages held within the meridian pathways and the fascial network system".
