Somatic Yoga with Henrietta     MB Difficulty  MB Slash     MB Difficulty MB Difficulty 

LQ & SF - Henrietta Brice-Smith

Although Embodied Resilience may resemble yoga it is not yoga, it is a practice where you do not require strength or flexibility. It teaches you to release tension as you flow through sequences where you will sustain necessary muscular effort to maintain flow, good posture and good alignment. 

Embodied Resilience is an invitation to know and be yourself more deeply and is simply a way of means to learn how to feel, by way of feeling sensations deeply within our bodies. This practice supports joint health, reduces stress, improves quality of life and increases self confidence.

The sessions are clearly grounded in step-by-step instruction which deeply supports the body within the postures, and invites each person to become more intimate with their personal experience. It recalibrates body and mind through repetetive systematic movements.

Yin Yoga
     MB Difficulty  MB Slash MB Difficulty  MB DifficultyMB Slash MB Difficulty  MB Difficulty  MB Difficulty
SP - Michelle Cotillard

Yin Yoga is a quiet contemplative practice. It works deeply into your body with longer held poses of 3 to 5 minutes whilst targeting and stretching both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas, helping to regulate the body's flow of energy.

When we begin to practice Yin & Restorative Yoga, we learn to listen to our bodies, slowing everything down. We learn to recognise our thoughts, to see them coming in and out of our mind, and to experience and digest them instead of having them race through our mind like an escaped rollercoaster.

This in turn increases our ability to be in the present moment and to practice gratitude, slowly bringing us closer to our authentic self. It is a truly perfect way to find space, to slow your mind down and to be guided deeper into your practice.

Suitable for everyone, from complete beginners to experienced yogis.
