Wintering: a season survival workshop with Lolo Lam
£35 in studio / £15 online
Embrace the coming winter months by joining Lolo for this 2.5 hour workshop in Peckham. Shake off that nagging hibernation fug with some energising yang practice. Then nourish the system with some grounding yin… And then finally soften and release into a deep and immersive yoga nidra!
According to Ayurveda, winter is a Kapha time of year. Kapha dosha relates to the water and earth elements. In balance this element makes us feel stable, steady and secure however out of balance and we start to shut down, feeling sluggish, unmotivated and tired.
The first part of the workshop will be a dynamic flow designed to warm you up from the inside out. With fluid movement we aim to stimulate the mercurial nature of water and shift through the dense and heavy nature of earth. By moving with our breath, we will find space and lightness, shaking off any stagnation and blockages, both physical and mental.
The second part of the workshop will take us in and back down to the earth. Through a mixture of yin and restorative poses we will reconnect with our sense of centre and grounding. By releasing all conscious effort and softening through any muscle tension, we can get into the deeper connective tissues of the body and observe what we have been holding in the shadows during our busy lifestyles.
The third part of the workshop is the yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep! In yoga nidra the less you do the more you benefit! Lie down, make yourself comfy and fully surrender, allow yourself to be guided through this deeply relaxing, restoring and meditative practice.
