INTRODUCTION TO YOGA at WALWORTH GARDEN, tba

During this workshop, you will get a holistic introduction to yoga as a philosophy; We will practise two types of yoga together and explore various types of meditation, next to getting to learn more about Yoga philosophy, Chakras and the Ayurvedic health system.

Programme

Hatha Flow

We will start with a dynamic yoga class of 60 minutes which includes gentle stretches (Asanas), breathing exercises (Pranayama) and a short, seated meditation, also called Yang Yoga.

 

Tea and a small snack

 

Introduction to Yoga Philosophy, Chakra’s and Ayurveda

During this hour we will talk about the ancient yoga philosophy, which is over 4000 years old and the basis of many modern day (Eastern) religions. Furthermore, we will explore the interesting world of Chakra’s, or energy wheels, in our physical bodies and the Ayurvedic health science, which is used alongside Western medicine on the Indian sub-continent.

 

Lunch break

Bring your own (healthy) lunch from home; try to keep it light, so you won’t suffer from an after-lunch-dip. Think about a nice salad, some veggies or soup.

 

Introduction to active meditation

During this introduction, we will try out 3 varieties of meditation other than the standard seated meditation. Be surprised about the possibilities to attain a Zen-like state!

 

Tea and a small snack

Restorative yoga

During this session, we will go through a few restorative poses held for a longer period (a few minutes) to allow the body to fully calm down, prepare for the evening and the mind to focus inwards, also called Yin Yoga. We will use many props for this type of yoga to allow the body to fully relax, so we would ask you to bring some from home (e.g. small pillow or two and a blanket). Also bring along a nice warm pullover and comfortable socks, as the body will cool down during this session.

 

The workshop* is given on a regular basis at Walworth Garden. However, if you'd like to book this workshop for a group of friends, colleagues or family, contact me to have a chat.

*Workshop is amendable to specifics needs of the group.
