Naturally Balanced

“Naturally Balanced” invites you to expand your awareness and embark on a holistic journey using pranayama, meditation, yin yoga, vinyasa flow and Ayurvedic based Quantum sequencing. 

This workshop is about connecting with the element of water and harnessing this energy within your body and your practice – we are 60% water after all. 

We will begin by working with the connective tissues, ligaments and fascia through yin yoga. By creating space in the “yin” tissues we allow for a greater range of movement through the joints and we can go deeper into our “yang” practice. We will seamlessly transition into sequential movement, embody the ebb and flow of the ocean through our breath and bring these two into union. Our Vinyasa flow follows the Quantum method which honours traditional Indian Ayurveda and the assessment of the “doshas”; a recognition we were born with a certain and specific balance, and any ailments we suffer with are due to an imbalance in our true nature or energetic make up.

We will work on postures to strengthen, root down and ground the Vata energy (air/movement) that tends to keep us up in our heads. Meditative core work helps to stir the Pitta (fire) in our bellies, create stronger support for our spine and encourages us to stay cool under pressure. Arm balances help challenge our sense of stability and inversions turn our world upside down stirring up the Kapha (Earth and Water) within us.

Like water we have the power to be as still as a lake or as wild as the waves. Use this workshop to explore your many sides and many layers. You will leave feeling more connected, mindful, grounded and energised!

Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.

The theme for the 2017 celebration, organized by the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, is 'Yoga for Health.' The theme highlights the fact that yoga can contribute in a holistic way to achieving an equilibrium between mind and body. The organizers believe that this approach to health and wellbeing can make a direct and useful contribution to humankind's quest to achieve sustainable development and move towards lifestyles that are in harmony with nature.

SURF FLOW VINYASA

SURF FLOW VINYASA

  • Swan Dive Pilates and Yoga (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

As surfers we are looking to develop many aspects yoga has access to - balance, agility, flexibility, breath holding, core stability...  

In the heart of Cornwall's surfing mecca Newquay, we explore the marriage and synchronicity between yoga and riding waves; diving deeply into functional movement to help become a better surfer.   

To keep those more seasoned on the mat we will be playing with arm balances and inversions, with plenty of preparation poses to ensure those new to yoga move safely and confidently into a stronger practice.  

With vinyasa, the focus is the breath so dedication to Ujjai pranayama is required, as well as curiosity, awareness and self compassion.  We approach the sequences just like we approach an incoming swell, letting go of our egoic concerns and opening our heart to the lessons (and potential bliss) that arise.  

Just like the ocean, we honour the gifts our practice has to offer - most prominently, time spent undistracted and present within the moment and our bodies.

Pricing: Drop in classes are £8

Surf instructors/competitive surfers/concessions: £7

Full 11 week course: £80 (1 week free)

NURTURE THROUGH NATURE YOGA WORKSHOP

Sunday 11th June, 9-10am

Using permaculture as the framework of wisdom, yoga philosophy as a traditional spiritual and physical practice and Ayurvedia as a tool for wellbeing we can apply integrating systems and inter-connection within the body, mirroring the concept of the macrocosm and the microcosm; spiralling down into the root of people care: SELF CARE. 

During my Permaculture Design Course in New Zealand, which incorporated yoga, meditation and satsang running parallel to the practical course I was inspired to unite my understanding and love of yoga with the pillars and principles of permaculture.

We will take a journey inward, exploring and energising zone 00, with the permaculture principles as our navigation and narrative.

Suitable for all permies, new to yoga or not, flexible or not, it will be postures and techniques accessible for all!
