I AM - Pranayama, Asana & Naada Yoga
1:15 pm - 2:15 pm
Srimathumitha Mani

When one's yoga practice is merely physical, the yogam or union of body, mind and spirit is often far from reach. I AM takes you on a journey within yourself through different types of Pranayama, Chants and Restorative Asanas that unravel the koshas one by one, help the kundalini unwind and rise and help realise the beautiful connection that happens between individual consciousness and universal consciousness. When this connection happens, the yogi feels Paramananda or bliss. It is then, that the Chitta or intellect quietens and the core of our existence reveals itself. The addition of apt Naada Yoga mantras and music in Sri's soothing and resonant voice takes your practice to a whole new level and to unvisited depths of spirit. Aham Brahmasmi!

A vigorous flowing practice with emphasis on awareness. How can a practice like yoga that appears to be so very physical have such profound mental and emotional benefits ? It all begins with AWARENESS...... We don’t do these poses to compete or just to do something hard. We are doing this to observe ourselves. While our bodies move though flowing sequences, we turn inside and notice how we feel and what we feel

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Imma Denton

Hello beautiful souls, my name is Imma and I will be offering a space to learn more about your wondrous body and cycle. I’ve been called to raise more awareness around our bleed as the educational system has failed us immensely. So many women have no idea what happens to us during this month and more so how to manage intense pms. I have been on (importance/attnt)the menstrual health journey for about a year and I love to share my knowledge and help other women feel amazing about their bleed. It doesn't have to be a burden, I believe it's our ultimate power source as a woman. Come join me in a no judgement zone to learn how to connect to this gift we have been given. This workshop includes: How to track your cycle and a take home copy of a cycle chart. What happens during our cycle; to our hormones and body. How to improve period health to better manage pms. Connecting to our womb space and rituals for our cycle. Extra resources to further self learning. *My knowledge is based on countless books, courses and research. I will give resources out for further self learning and discovery. My aim is to purely change the narrative and bring awareness, I am not a professional cycle advisor.

Laughter Yoga
9:00 am - 10:00 am
Benedicte Henry

In a Laughter Yoga session you will gently stretch, move, breathe, connect with yourself and the other participants, and of course mostly laugh, for greater health and happiness. Created in India by a medical doctor in 1995, it is an exercise program which allows you to laugh even if you don’t feel like it. Laughter is induced by a body to mind process, where laughter exercises are combined with breathing, chanting and clapping. With eye contact and childlike playfulness, the laughter becomes unconditional and free flowing, rewarding your body and mind with its many benefits. A session typically starts with laughter and muscle warm-ups, then combines laughter and breathing exercises, which are followed by a laughter meditation involving free flowing laughter, and ends with a 10 minutes relaxation.
