“Compassion in action”
09.30 - 10.20 Short talk, compassionate breathing exercises and meditation
10.30 - 12.00 Compassionate yoga flow
We may often associate self-compassion with turning inward but this morning we are going to apply self-compassion in action. We allow our yoga practice to become a laboratory in which we can study and observe our habitual responses to strong sensations or discomfort. This will help to dissolve unconscious patterns like judgment and impatience and find (self) compassion instead.
12.00 - 13.30 Lunch break
13.30 - 16.00 Self-compassion in rest
A mindful Yin Yang yoga practice that leads into a loving-kindness meditation.

“Learn how to add functional movement exercises to your yoga practice”
09.30 - 10.30 Pranayama and Meditation
10.30 - 12.00 Shoulders and hips yoga flow with functional movement
A fluid yoga practice in which we increase body awareness through adding functional movement exercises to our traditional yoga poses. We'll learn to actively engage muscles we may not be accustomed to engaging, rather than only using those muscles we habitually use. This helps us to protect specific joints. Notice your practice transform and become more free and light!
12.00 - 13.30 Lunch break
13.30 – 16.00 Yin yoga finishing with a long and luscious Yoga Nidra
Peace is experienced when the body and mind are relaxed, so let this afternoon help you to do just that!
