Meditation Made Easier
It’s time to make meditation even easier! Continuing from the practices we learned in Meditation Made Easy, this 3-hour workshop will focus on how to use the Bodymind Flow Meditation practice to “open the heart”.
We’ll begin with a guided practice that will recap the walking, lying and sitting Bodymind Flow meditation practices. Then, with a solid foundation and connection to ourselves, we can explore the somatic heart opening meditation practices that can help us to develop qualities such as loving-kindness and compassion that will lead to a more positive state of mind.
This workshop is ideal for compete beginners to meditation, and to those with some meditation experience alike. These practices are great for anyone looking to lower stress in their life, or deal with anxiety and depression. You’ll leave this workshop fully capable of committing to a daily meditation practice, with a full understanding of how the simple Bodymind Flow Meditation approach can improve your everyday life.
Yoga Gathering for Peace
2016 has been a turbulent year, and as we draw close to its end we still have much conflict and uncertainty in many parts of the world. Kelly is facilitating this year-end gathering to celebrate the light of humanity that shines through in dark times, and set our intention to make 2017 a time of peace and reconciliation across the globe.
We will come together in community to connect with our own peaceful intentions through a variety of yoga practices such as meditation, chanting, gesture and ritual. We can then take our inner peace back into the world, and facilitate change from a space of loving kindness.
Venue size is limited so please contact us to book your place, and don’t forget to bring a cushion for sitting on the floor (chairs available).
Sacred Women’s Space
As women we are always evolving, changing and creating, yet sometimes can lose our direction and the connection to our sacred ground of body, breath and heart.
Exploring our bodies through yoga practice, mantra, ritual and art therapy, we can re-establish the connection to this sacred ground. There we will discover the home of our inner warrior and creator, and reconnect with our creative energy no matter what stage of life we are in.
In this workshop, Kelly Davies and Arlene Kaplan-Newstadt will guide us in practices designed to help us tune back in to our powerful creative feminine energy.
For hundreds of thousands of years, mankind has sought the comfort and protection of fire, to bring light in the darkest of nights and warmth to ward away the winter cold.
From this outer fire, yogis learned to light the inner fires (agni) of the chakras and transform their energy to clear the obstacles that block the free flow of life force (prana).
Join Kelly for this practical exploration of the Five Yogic Fires. Through a series of ancient movement, breath and awareness practices, you will experience the power of your inner fires and find the way past whatever blocks you in life.
We will take an easy, playful attitude to practice, so this workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and ability. All you need is a curious mind and a desire to bring change into your life through self-empowering practice.
Opening the Heart of Yoga: An Introduction to the Yoga of Krishnamacharya
Sri T. Krishnamacharya, the Grandfather of Modern Yoga, is well known as the teacher of modern greats such as BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and his son, TKV Desikachar. His approach to Yoga is truly accessible to all, based on his fundamental belief that the practices of Yoga must be adapted to meet each student’s individual needs.
Join Kelly for an introduction to the basic principles of Krishnamacharya’s method, moving through the physical to the more subtle layers of the body. Together we will explore how practice can evolve over time, through a creative blend of movement (asana), breathing (pranayama), sound and meditation. This four-hour workshop will interest students and teachers who are seeking to open to a deeper understanding of themselves through Yoga.
A Kick Up the Asana: Discovering Integrity through Embodied Practice
The power of physical posture (asana) practice in establishing the connection between body, breath and mind, makes it an an essential gateway for most modern Yoga practitioners. Far beyond the simple benefits of moving and stretching, as we consciously develop embodied awareness it allows us to dive into the deeper freedoms of the authentic self.
Join Kelly for a few hours of play with movement and stillness, sound and silence. We will explore how embodied practice helps us move beyond habits (samskara) to a foundation of personal integrity (sthiram), and open into our subtle body landscapes.
With an easy, playful attitude, this workshop is suitable for everyone from athletes to couch potatoes, from total beginners to seasoned Yoga practitioners. All you need is a curious mind and a desire to bring change into your life through self-empowering practice.
