Restorative Yoga & Deep Relaxation
Saturday 5th January 4:30 – 6:30pm with Emma Beattie
Emma invites you to join what will be her last workshop at Jiva before a move to the other side of the world! January is a time to shake off the indulgences of the silly season and set intentions for the year ahead. Give your body and mind a (non-sugary) treat, and indulge yourself with a detoxifying sequence of restorative poses, and nurturing breathing exercises.
Done in the soft glow of candles, with a relaxing soundtrack, we will open with a grounding meditation, and several breathing techniques, before moving into a variety of longer hold, deeply relaxing restorative poses.
We will use props to support us as we open the body and release tension from the muscles and joints. We will incorporate breathing techniques (pranayama) throughout to help bring an awareness to the breath, purify the body and to quieten the mind. To finish there will be a deeply relaxing, guided Savasana so you can float all the way home…
Restorative yoga is used to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for balancing and re-energising the whole body. Typically we hold restorative poses from anywhere between 10-20 minutes to really sink into our relaxation, and by stimulating this system, you experience a lower heart rate and blood pressure. This also helps to lower stress and anxiety, and boost your immune system… All welcome. Please wear comfortable loose clothing (bring layers so you stay warm and cosy!)

Are you are feeling stuck in work and disenchanted with what you are doing to earn an income, or unsure of which way to turn work wise? Then this 3 hr afternoon workshop is for you. We shall be exploring movement with Tish to discover our energy, sense of ‘I’ and to focus more on what we want rather than what we don’t want. And then with Sue. We can choose and get stuck in job roles that don’t reward us and don’t give us anything to find excitement, meaning and energy in our working lives. Do not remain in a job that drains your energy. Come and learn what you can do to reconnect to your existing work or find the job role that will be right for you in the future. Plenty of opportunity to ask questions and a workbook for each attendee with additional resources included in the price. Come prepared for an afternoon of information, inspiration and movement all designed to make work meaningful for you.
Open to all
