Event description

Description

In this warming candlelit workshop we will celebrate and honour the last moments of darkness on the longest weekend night of the year before the Winter Solstice on the 21st of December. We will prepare to welcome back in the light from the Sun as from the 21st the days grow longer again! There is still a way to go with winter though - this practice will nourish our bodies and minds to see us through the coldest months.

In 2017, the December Solstice is on December 21st, 16:28 UTC.



Open with a Meditation

Intro to Workshop: Wheel of the Year, Solstice, Practice & Ayurveda

Meditation on Intentions

- We will set our intentions for the coming year ahead, aknowledge our experience of the present and reflect back on the previous 3 months of Autumn, letting go of anything not serving us in our lives.

Full 90 minute Asana practice, with Ayurvedic informed postures to build heat in order to work with and balance cold, dry Vatta, the Dosha most prominent in winter.

- Pranayama and Kundalini Kriyas

- Balance of Yang and Yin postures

- Long Relaxation: Savasana leading in to Yoga Nidra guided meditation.

- Sound therapy with chimes & Singing Bowl.

Closing Mettā Meditation


Golden, Tumeric Milk and Warm, Spicy Chai will be available after the practice. (Vegan/Non-Dairy)

Aromatherapy oils will be used throughout the workshop + Music to immerse your senses and bring you deep in to a space where you can relax and unwind from the everyday pressures of life.

Frankincense will be featured as an oil associated with meditation and the Christmas period, along with Orange and Clove.

You will leave feeling rejuvinated and ready for the New Year to come! Grounded and warmed in your body. Clear on what it is you want to manifest in your life in the future months, where you are at in the present moment, and how you feel about the previous months leading up to the Solstice.

This is the Second workshop in a Series based on the four major points of the Wheel of The Year - Autumn Equinox, Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice.

I look forward to practicing with you!
