Leading with trust
A peer-led exploration of enough-ness with me and Nathalie Joel-Smith
Friday 27th July
If you’re anything like me, the thought ‘I don’t know enough’ and/or ‘I’m not enough’ will have, at some point, crossed your mind in your teaching experience.
A grappling to find affirmation of worth from external sources is slippery and exhausting.
It’s also a big ask to expect worth to land and root when the foundations are insecure.
To nurture a sense of trust in our ability, our brilliance, our us-ness we have to stop searching externally and go in, to figure out what it is that’s feeding the doubt and to stoke the fire of trust - in where we’re at and what we know.
This extended gathering will be a day of shared digging and discussing, to shed, reframe and free up. We’ll explore looking at what we know with a new perspective, to see the wealth of what’s already in our experience and knowledge bank.
We’ll test out how it feels to sit in the seat of the ‘sharer’, rather than the ‘knower’ and shake off the weight of authority that can so effectively crush inspiration and trust.
The day will include an opening movement practise, group discussion, time for self-enquiry through free writing, visioning and a guided relaxation.
We’ll all eat our lunch together in the park.
Total cost: £55
An initial deposit of £30 will secure your space with the remaining balance to be due on 1st July.

SMALL GROUP WORKSHOPS
Breathing Beyond Pranayama
with Dan Peppiatt
Sunday 28th October
10am - 1pm
This workshop takes us on a journey of understanding ourselves through not only the breath, but the breath in connection to the body and the mind. We will consider whether traditional yoga pranayama is really the most effective and useful set of tools for most peoples poor breathing habits and if not, then what should we be working with?
Explore the full potential of your breath and why it is the most powerful tool the ancient yogis chose to work with. Combining the best training and breath correction techniques from free-diving training, Wim Hof method as well as breath work tools from Russian Systema to Taoism, join Dan to investigate the outer limits of where your breath and the absence of it can take you.
Topics will include:
· Anatomy and physiology of how and why we breathe
· Examining the most common poor breathing habits in ourselves and the general population
· Correcting breathing patterns and breathing more efficiently and easily
· Breathing games, tools and drills from various disciplines
· Breathwork for anxiety and stress
Open to practitioners and teachers; discover how to improve your own breathing and that of your students in totally new and unfamiliar ways.
