I enjoyed teaching this workshop so much earlier this year I am offering it again. This time at Yoga Kula in Leeds you can book here. So come and nourish yourself with an afternoon of heart lead hatha flow yoga, poetry and yoga nidra. Both yoga and poetry can be practices of intimacy which can lead us into the unknown or unheard realms of our being. When we uncover these less familiar aspects of ourselves we can start to feel and re-member them as a part of us.
In this workshop we will dive into the heart center as the doorway to this listening. We will work with a fluid yoga sequence that moves from the heart into relationship with the whole body. Inviting us to open and close, reach out and draw inwards, exploring the landscapes of the heart and the wisdom held within.
So often yoga workshops prioritise opening the heart, but there is a maturity in recognising that the close is equally as valuable as the open. This sequence lends itself to both of these polarities the reaching out and the turning inwards as well. The sequence includes balances, backbends, forward bends and twists and is combined with a beautiful soundscape to evoke your emotional and physical bodies. Thereby inviting you to feel how they interweave into expansion and return until eventually winding down to a heart lead yoga nidra to finish.

“Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
If it were always a fist or always stretched open,
you would be paralysed.
Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding,
the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated
~ Rumi translated Coleman Barks
