In this Gentle Yoga class we move slowly – taking extra care of the low back, shoulders and neck. We mindfully explore movements that nourish us and release tension. While we use gentle strengthening movements to support a healthy spine, the main focus lies on relaxation. Recent research has shown that stress can lead to pain-causing inflammation in the connective tissue of the body. Breathing exercises (pranayama) and restorative poses throughout the class will help to calm the nervous system, relieve stress and reduce pain.
This class has been developed based on my research on low back pain, and hence is suitable for most people with injuries such as herniated / bulged discs as well as those seeking relaxation and stress relief. Please inform me of any injuries / medical conditions you may have before your first class.
The Be Here Now workshop explores relaxation, gentle movement, breathing and mindfulness. It is taught by Lynn McCutcheon (B.A., P.G.C.E.) Lynn is a Reiki Master also trained in stress management. She works with individuals using various healing techniques. She has practised meditation and yoga on a daily basis for over twenty years.
Open to all regardless of vocal experience, these workshops are a lovely mixture of:
These workshops combine working with sound and movement (yoga postures), seated work with sound, and also seated Vedic chant. The sound work is accessible to anyone: my aim is to help people find their own “voice”. Working with sound is potentially empowering and freeing – as well as very enjoyable!
The workshops can help people who have lost confidence with singing or any type of performance. The aim is to connect more deeply with our selves from the inside in a safe way and to explore our own resonance and creativity.
‘Before I became a yoga teacher, I was (and still am) a flute player specialising in early and contemporary music. I always had a fascination for the power of sound to open up energy within our system, and of the therapeutic potential of resonance within the body.’ – Eleanor Dawson
