Move, Sit, Write
a yoga & journaling session
Sunday 30 September
“I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.”
– Joan Didion.
Just as the mindful movement of a yoga practise offers a powerful way of cultivating awareness and a greater connection to self, so does the act of putting pen to paper.
Writing doesn’t have to be something that’s done for others to see, it can be a practise solely for you; to release, reflect and reframe.
Through writing thoughts, concerns and ideas that might be swirling around in your mind are given form and can be seen from a different perspective and therefore understood more deeply. Turning up to the page, like turning up to practise yoga is a way of opening up a dialogue with yourself.
The session will start with an embodied movement practise to dive in, stir up and shake out, before sitting down with tea to explore some free writing and journaling practises.
Yoga and writing are two very powerful tools in my self-care arsenal. They give me a sense of physical and mental spaciousness, help me offload, and cultivate a sense of even mindedness. They have also becomes creative outlets and bring me great joy. I can’t imagine allowing either to fall away.
You don’t need to have any writing or movement experience – these practises are for you!
£25 – early bird price is £20 if booked before 15 Aug.
Location: Holdspace, Angel

On Sunday 22nd July i'll be sharing a collection of practical methods for managing and pacifying anxiety. We'll explore ways in which to cultivate grounding and settling by using mantra, breath work, physical yoga sequences and mindfulness practices that can be tested out and applied to daily London living. We'll also touch on the science of anxiety in order to greater understand why we experience it and how it's exacerbated.

These weeks are hosted by Sardinia Yoga and are a very relaxed affair. I teach a 2 hours class each morning overlooking the sea then the rest of the day is yours to explore, lounge around, eat good food and drink, socialise with the group / not socialise with the group. Perfect if you'd like to combine a holiday with a bit of yoga.
