Birthing Workshop
Amanda Walker

A unique opportunity for mothers-to-be and their birthing partners to learn useful breathing, movement and massage techniques, each one designed to support you through every stage of labour. Amanda, an exceptionally experienced yoga practitioner with special interest and expertise in pre and post natal work, will guide you both through ways in which to conserve energy, relax and regulate during the birth. Prepare and equip yourself with the tools you need to experience as much comfort and ease as possible during your labour.

Follow-up notes from the session will be provided so that you can practice the techniques together in the lead up to delivery, a positive way to connect and work together as birth mother and birthing partner.

All are welcome (from week 13 of pregnancy onwards) and no previous experience of yoga is necessary for either participant.

Testament to the value of this work: the words of a past participant “It is without doubt that all the yoga and breath work helped me through and made for a calm birth and consequently a very calm little girl – so thank you.”

£30 per couple

Yoga for Freedom + Play
Barbara Antonino

Give yourself some time to play with, explore and experience yoga in your body in a brand new way during this liberating afternoon of mobility inspired movement. Babs will guide you to move from your bones strongly but softly, you’ll be encouraged to let go of rigidity and gripping and instead seek fluidity, expansion and light.

This open level extended practice will ask you to feel beyond the familiar and to shake off your fixed understanding of what yoga expects of you, you’ll learn to work with the body, not against it.

All levels of experience, as always, are welcome.

Move, Write, Rest: Practices for Self-Healing
Clare Waters

“I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.”– Joan Didion.

A medley of three: space-creating, healing and connection-cultivating practices.

Yoga, writing and supported rest have the potential to be highly potent tools for self-healing. They offer a sense of physical and mental spaciousness and stoke the fires of self-connection and creativity. Just as the mindful movement of a yoga practise offers a powerful way of cultivating awareness and a greater connection to self, so does the act of putting pen to paper and laying down to rest.

Writing doesn’t have to be something that’s done for others to see, it can be a practice solely for you; to reflect, release and reframe. It is a way of releasing concerns and ideas that might be swirling around in your mind onto a page that can be seen from a different perspective and therefore understood more deeply. Turning up to the page, like turning up to a yoga mat is a way of opening up a dialogue with yourself.

Showing up to rest is also deeply therapeutic. Our doing should be balanced with non-doing. Rest isn’t idleness, it’s an act of self-nourishment and recognition of the fact that we are living, breathing human beings who need time to recover and recharge.

This ‘Move, Write, Rest’ workshop will begin with an embodied movement practice so that you can dive in, stir up and shake out before sitting down to explore some free writing and journaling practises. The session will end with an extended relaxation to let the dust from the day settle.

You don’t need to have any writing or movement experience – just bring along a notepad and a pen.
