Hatha “Now and Zen” Yin

Lauren Green 

Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

Tom Robb

Redefining purpose and passion through story stillness and movement. With a unique blend of compassion, play, and conversation, Finding Your Truth North workshops invite attendees to rediscover their ultimate potential through a series of powerful exercises and activities. Combining motivational discussions, guided yoga, meditation practices, and self-reflection exercises, this workshop brings your mindset to a state of wellbeing and clarity long after it ends. Because when you are able to operate from that feel-good place, you’re in a position to better serve yourself and your community.

Devotion to Motion class
17:00 - 18:30
Lyndall Kay 

Devotion to Motion is an ecstatic, shamanic, somatic dance practice that journeys through the 5 Elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether. These 5 Elements are the fabric of our existence, and Lyndall weaves these elements into all of her work. This Dancing Freedom elemental wave of sound takes participants on a journey, as the music starts off slow, builds to a crescendo, and completes with stillness. This intuitive dance practice encourages participants to freely move their body to music. It is shame free, shoe free, and substance free, but not free of substance. Dancing with pure breath has opened up Lyndall’s body, heart, mind, sexual centre, and spirit, giving her new ways of being and feeling. Physically it has made her more fitter, emotionally it has made her feel more balanced, mentally it has made her stronger, sexually it has allowed her to experience orgasms from pure breath, and spiritually it has made her feel more connected. Whatever Lyndall offers she supports people to find the inner rhythm inside of them. Lyndall has been working in health and social care for over 20years, is available to teach various workshops in this sector, and has numerous qualifications to support her work.

The 'Great Undoing’ an antidote for modern living.
08:00 - 09:00
Scott Nailer, Danielle& Tessa

Modern living has meant we often spend long periods of the day sitting at a desk, working on computers, driving, or looking at our phone. This can result in tight hip-flexors, shoulders and neck muscles, and pain in our lower backs and sacrum. Additionally, the pace of our modern busy lives can have an impact on our mental wellbeing and sense of peace. Fortunately...... through responsive and considered use of asana, pranayama and meditation you can undo the day, releasing overworked muscles and strained joints and through our connection to movement and breath find the stillness in the moment. Let's begin the Great Undoing. The class will be suitable for all levels of Yoga experience and with three of us there will be plenty of assistance available to participants.

Leah Cooper

A huge number of people suffer from back pain and injuries. Yoga has been shown to be a way to improve these conditions. So how can we use yoga effectively to improve our back health and reduce the chances of injury? In this class, I will guide you through specific therapeutic yoga to release tension in the back, improve blood flow and stabilise the core. Doing these exercises regularly will provide relief and assist people with back issues to feel stronger, healthier and more flexible.
