Love is at the centre of our lives. It is what we long for, cling to, wrestle with, avoid, reject and despair at losing. Through its philosophy, yoga addresses this relationship with love and with it makes a compelling promise: practise yoga and you will succeed in your relationship with others and with yourself. In this workshop, we will look at what love means in yoga, where it manifests and how we can work towards a healthy relationship with it. Using movement, breath, sound and visualisation, we’ll take a step towards radically wholehearted and well-balanced relationships.Read More
Yoga philosophy lays bare our all-too-human tendency to self-sabotage and lead ourselves into trouble. It provides a framework for understanding this universal struggle, inviting us to question: if love is so important to us, why do we behave in ways that deter it? Why do we repeat actions that hurt the ones we love? Create distance when we long for closeness? And what are we hoping for as we do so? Through this workshop, we’ll use breath, movement, sound and visualisation to explore what a yoga practise can do to help us overcome the painful challenges of love.Read More
We all have ways of getting by in our daily lives, techniques we use to get through situations smiling when on the inside we’re drowning. Rather than working through the causes of our discontent, these techniques allow us to muddle through while the symptoms of our pain persist. This façade can make us feel protected while keeping genuine connection at bay. In this workshop, we’ll look at how we can address the root cause of the issues we face, work through them and wipe our emotional slates clean, leading us to deeper, meaningful connection with others and a fresh start in love.Read More
