Practice Circles & Gatherings for Women
As we continue to navigate uncertain times, these monthly circles are an invitation to drop IN …
Through the autumn and winter we meet on the first Saturday of the month at and in the summer months we will continue to meet bi-monthly for yoga and hiking days. Both summer and winter we will begin at Eaglesfield Village Hall.
Summer Yoga & Hiking Gatherings:
These will begin at Eaglesfield Village Hall, where we will meet for a beautiful long yoga flow practice of around 90 -120 minutes. We will then head to the fells – each hike will be planned to suit those who wish to join. The hikes will go ahead in all but the most extreme weather so you should always come prepared for rain, wind, hail and SUNBURN!
The next Yoga & Hiking gathering is on Saturday 14th May.
These gatherings offers you the chance to “check out” of your busy schedule and take a morning for yourself. The sessions will all begin the same; we’ll find our breath as we take time to open our bodies. You’ll then be led through wave after wave of expanding movement, drawn gracefully through fluid flows towards deeper poses whilst cultivating peaceful ease. As well as kindling your physical practice these sessions are also about tending the heart fire and deepening self knowledge – we’ll explore intentional outcomes and themes through prose, poetry, music and journaling.
Throughout the autumn & winter of 2021/22 we considered the following themes:
- How to find the right path? – how self honesty paves the way to a stronger sense of purpose and fulfilment
- Leaning-in to disappointment, anger and sadness as teachers
- The Mountain is you/me – understanding how we get in “our own way”!
- Identifying the factors that have shaped how we think about ourselves
- Re-wiring self-beliefs, mastering the inner critic, learning a new language of self-talk so we can “unblock” ourselves and move forward more boldly
After practice you’ll be invited to stay for tisanes and “morsels” of nourishment.
Oh, and every month you’ll receive a little gift from me – a thank you for all I know you will bring.
Hear what they say:
“Thank you for running another excellent Practice Circle yesterday – I really enjoyed the yoga practice and felt privileged to be in the company of such fantastic women. The discussion flowed so well and hearing about the experiences of other women is something I find very helpful in so many ways – I really hope this is the case for everyone else too. It feels like a very safe place to speak freely and discuss ideas about navigating this life as women. It’s wonderful!”
