Winter solstice, when the Earth has drawn in her energies to feed the complex and vital systems beneath her surface. Her work is visceral. This is a time that invites a free dive into the richness and subtle beauty of quiet. Within stillness, there is always potentiality. As we begin to move towards the light of Spring, it benefits us to first know ourselves in the darkness of Winter. This session is an embodied exploration of the deepest, most mysterious and powerful aspects of the body. Organs and glands silently orchestrate our moods, desires, energy and routines and yet they are the parts of the body we know least about. Join me in a dive into the crystal river of the endocrine system and the major vital organs which, when observed, can offer us a whole new resource for inner support and informed movement. Gentle flow, long-held restorative postures, soothing breath work and yoga nidra. Pyjamas welcome! grab a hot cup of something and snuggle up with your mat, a pile of blankets and as many cushions as you can get hold of. Restorative yoga is more than just gentle stretching, it's the practice of befriending yourself and learning to navigate the rich and endless landscape of your inner world with curiosity, kindness and compassion. In our restorative practice, we will hold postures comfortably for between 3 - 10 minutes with gentle guidance from your teacher, Morven. The postures are supported with props like blankets, cushions, bolsters and pillows. The focus is on allowing the body and mind to gently release tension in comfort and ease. Equipment will be provided but do bring your own if you like.
