13:15 - 14:15: Move from love – Yoga as an embodied self-inquiry
Instead of looking outside for what we can get from the poses, this practice encourages us to look within, to explore, feel and work with what is already there. It’s a fluid, slow-flow practice – sometimes strong, sometimes meditative. The invitation is to unwind our body through spontaneous and intuitive, non-linear movements. There’s also some strengthening work to ensure we’re stable enough to allow for (and revel in) this freedom of movement. All this is interwoven with some space and silence so we can check in with ourselves and move from a place of deep presence.

12:00 - 13:00: Stable as a mountain – Yin yoga
During this Yin yoga class we establish a mountain-like presence within – solid and stable. When we feel connected to the earth there is a palpable sense of groundedness, which in turn helps us to feel a connection to the centre of ourselves and the centre of all things. The invitation in this class is to rest effortlessly within ourselves, leaving everything as it is. This is a way to make peace with ourselves, the world and everything in it, because that is what peace is: to be okay with the reality of the present moment.
