Continuity + Fluidity:
July 5th 2019, 10:30-3pm at flow studios in tunbridge wells
£70 per day including delicious vegan lunch – to book please click here
We start our life bathed in fluid with softness everywhere within our body. We are like liquid gold with more sense of wholeness and continuity than at any other time.
In this day retreat workshop, we will look into the distinguishing qualities of the various systemic fluids (cellular, blood, CSF, synovial, interstitial and lymph) and draw inspiration from their spiralling inner currents to rediscover our own powerful nature and innate ability to flow, connect and move with energy, ease and joy.
We will also sense into this great, unbounded ocean of fluidity through our breath, as it finds its way into different forms and channels to create communication, nourishment and strength for our whole physical functioning and well-being.
The morning session will encompass an uplifting and energising Vinyasa flow practice. After breaking for lunch, we will return for a nurturing restorative yin session ending in deep savasana rest to leave you refreshed and fluid for the weekend ahead!
Further workshops at Flow Yoga, Tunbridge Wells in 2019 are: September 20th
Differentiate, Activate, Integrate: A series of weekend workshops to connect to ligaments, bones + movement
October 12th + 13th 2019, 10:00-5pm at triyoga soho
£40-45 per session or £150 for the whole weekend – to book please click here
Join Aki + Jean in a weekend of experiential workshop sessions to explore, feel and understand how bones, ligaments + joints have their own distinct functionality + role within the body. You’ll discover how they relate and work together to create wholeness of activation and full movement connectivity and integration. We’ll delve into the theory of our structure, but more importantly into creative movement explorations through experiential anatomy along with somatic yoga practices to cultivate and notice how subtle awareness and small changes within us have the most profound effect on how we feel, breathe and move our body in the circumstances of our lives.
12th Oct 10:00-1:30pm – Differentiation + functionality
The constellation of our bones create a functioning whole, offering a framework of support within us, and articulation through the connectivity of our joints. These bones begin their formation early in the fluid embryonic world, first as fibrous membrane, then cartilage, and by the seventh week the actual process of bone development has begun, visibly bringing the spine into life.
During this first session we will look into and feel differentiation of bones and joints, studying, exploring and enjoying their individual shape, form and functionality.
We’ll then move into sensing the pathway of our bones and the space of the joints to rediscover our inner architectural stability and motility.
12th Oct 2:30-5:00pm – Connectivity + Breath
When we find our capacity to yield we can access the pathway of the force through our bones’ architecture, enabling us to carry the volume of our body through space with more clarity and strength.
13th Oct – 10:00-1:30pm – Movement Integration + Wholeness
13th Oct – 2:30-5:00pm – Presence + Creativity
Yogaria Aerial Yoga Workshops
Dates to be confirmed
Classes and workshops draw upon the authentic yogasana system and integrate it with the principals of aerial training using a rigged silken cocoon material, which stretches organically yet has tremendous strength, like another skin, to harness, support and lift us from the ground.
Every session begins with gentle mat based asana work to strengthen and safely prepare the body and mind for the challenges of aerial work. We then move on to develop the practice in to fluid sequences using the cocoon alternatively with floor work to both elevate and ground.
Fun and challenging as well as restorative and gentle, Yogaria Aerial Yoga invites you to develop your confidence, strength and agility whilst deepening your yoga practice mentally and physically both on and off the mat.
Important Notes on Aerial Yoga workshops: Aerial work is strong, so expect to be challenged, stretched and strengthened to the core!
Mat work and partner work are both integral parts of aerial practice, so please come prepared to work on the yoga mat as well as in the air, and to share the practice and work with others.
Please also bring along extra clothing: one long and one half-sleeved top (no vests) and a long or knee length bottom (not baggy) to layer yourself with, so as to avoid friction of the skin with the cocoon
