Event description

Description

Gardening can be peaceful, enriching and bring us into deeper connection with ourselves, each other and the natural world or can feel more like hard work, leaving us stiff and sore. Learn how to make your gardening sustainable for your body, while developing your mind and appreciating the great outdoors.

* Practice Hatha Yoga postures for stretching and strengthening the parts of the body most used in the garden and helpful movements for specific gardening tasks;

* Learn simple breathing exercises, meditation practices and nature connection activities for relaxation and regeneration, increasing awareness and seeing the world with fresh eyes;

* Practical tips and demonstrations on how to move well in the garden while lifting, twisting, bending, reaching and carrying.

Weather permitting the session will be outdoors.

For gardeners and others doing physical activities. No experience of yoga or mindfulness needed.

Bring your own mat, plus a cushion (and yoga block/s if you have them.) Chair option provided for meditation and discussion.

Sally Ramsden is a qualified yoga teacher with a love of gardening. She runs Natural Connection, offering well-being programmes combining physical movement and mindfulness with nature connection.

In her part-time community engagement role at Cody Dock she supports community gardening sessions with volunteers across a 2.5 acre site on the banks of the River Lea. She also teaches yoga for meditation at the London Buddhist Centre and elsewhere. She is an experienced trainer and facilitator with many years of working with diverse communities and organisations.
