WINTER SOLSTICE – YIN & RESTORATIVE YOGA, GONG BATH AND SOLSTICE DINNER with Sasha Gabbé + Yogic Sound

14th December 2019 | 15:00 – 20:00 | £50 early bird before 06/12/19 | £60 thereafter | £40 for workshop only

We gather to welcome the arrival of Winter Solstice, with the second of our workshops that will culminate in a shared seasonal dinner.  Darker days can be viewed as opportunity to rest more and do less, so that much like nature we are then ready to be galvanised by the more upward energy of Spring.  In the Yin yoga practice, we shall focus on balancing our Kidney and Bladder energy that relates to Winter. There will also be the opportunity to deeply rest in supported restorative postures with the help of plenty of lovely props.

What to expect:

  • A two-hour Yin + Restorative Yoga practice guided by experienced Yoga teacher Sasha Gabbé.  Yin yoga is a floor-based form of Yoga that works the deep fascia of the body and can help to release tension, through long held postures.  Yin postures work the energetic pathways or ‘meridians’ and can be deeply healing.  Restorative yoga postures are where the body is fully supported by props, allowing for deep relaxation.  Sasha has been teaching Yoga since 2012, has trained extensively in Yin Yoga and assists leading Yin Yoga teacher Norman Blair on his London teacher trainings. Sasha trained in Restorative yoga with Judith Hanson Lassater.
  • An hour-long Gong Bath with Martina Saorin aka Yogic Sound. A sound bath is a form of sound therapy where the gong and other instruments are played in a therapeutic way to bring relaxation and healing.
  • A nutritional and seasonal sharing feast in the beautiful sanctuary of St John’s Church in Lewisham.
  • Full studio equipment
  • Parking is available
