Women’s Moon Circle – Friday 1st June

Moon circles are an ancient way of gathering women so that individually and collectively we can feel safe, heard, seen, loved and received for exactly the women we are and for the woman we may want to be. It’s the perfect place to come to create connection with yourself and with others in our warm, inviting and sacred sisterhood.

Our circles are led by Sharlene Belusevic, who has spent the last fifteen years learning, transforming, growing and training in the field of holistic personal development. Sharlene loves creating opportunities for women to experience feminine empowerment, allowing women to blossom and grow in their own right.

Each of our monthly circles has a theme. The theme for our first June circle is Energy with the Medicine Woman.

In our June circle our focus will be on increasing health & vitality, as we call upon the medicine woman to create harmony, interconnectedness & awareness of the medicine you need, so that you can be the woman you most want to be. 

What would it feel like for you to experience increased and steady energy levels? Discover what that looks like and what might be getting in the way of you achieving vibrant health and vitality, so you can fully embrace your potential and radiance as a woman. Together we will awaken the medicine woman within as we tap into unlimited resources and integrate her far-reaching medicinal gifts.

Yoga for the Four Seasons – Saturday 9th June

Have you noticed how the seasons affect us? Influencing the way our body, energy and mind feel. Since time began, yogis have observed the close relationship between our system and nature. Yoga is intended to take the mind into a natural, internal and steady state.

It is said that most of the yoga poses originated from this observation of animals and the natural world. Many of the asana (yoga poses) and pranayamas (breath practices) also mirror the elements, the Sun and the Moon. What we begin to learn is that the seasons are not separate from us, but that we are in a constant cycle of change, as the natural world around us also changes.

In this morning workshop with Regina Padma Rinchten, learn more about the characteristics of each season and how they link to the elements in nature, our body and the energy flows within us. This deeper understanding will allow you to become more sensitive to the four seasons, enhancing your ability to align with and take advantage of the energy of each season.

Suitable for all but complete beginners, the morning will include asana, pranayama, relaxation and simple meditation practice and will be taught in the Integral Yoga style in which Regina originally trained. It is a gentler practice than her regular Sun Power Yoga classes, making it more accessible to all.

Yoga for the Summer Solstice – Saturday 23rd June

An annual favourite in our workshops schedule, we have a fabulous morning of yoga planned to celebrate the beginning of Summer.

A few days after the solstice we will take our practice outside, on to the South Lawn at Ayscoughfee Hall. We will begin with a few minutes of quiet contemplation, as the sun rises over the ancient yew trees surrounding the lawn. There will be asana, pranayama and mantra bringing us closer to nature and the warming energy of the sun.

Taught by Claire Thomas and suitable for all, this is usually a fun and uplifting morning of yoga. We will meet at the studio on Broad Street at 7.45am before walking to Ayscoughfee Hall together. The morning includes tea and cake at Pacey’s Café and the chance to share time with our fellow yogi’s and yogini’s after our practice.

Come, bring a friend and keep your fingers crossed for the weather…

Yin Yoga for Summer – Saturday 14th July

In Chinese Medicine, the Summer season is associated with the Heart. Healthy Heart Chi promotes feelings of love, joy, compassion, connection, inner peace and harmony. In this morning session, designed specifically to work with the energy of Summer, you will be gently guided through a sequence that will maximise chi (energy) flow through the lung and heart meridians, into the organs themselves.

Taught by Kanti Freeman, Yin Yoga is a static, floor based practice, that blends traditional yoga poses, Chinese Medicine and Buddhist meditation/mindfulness practice. This morning will be suitable for all, even complete beginners with no experience of Yin Yoga. Join us to discover the deep stillness that arises in Yin Yoga and leave feeling completely nourished.

Kanti has been teaching yoga for thirteen years. She completed her Yin Yoga training with Sarah Lo, who has worked closely with internationally recognised author and yoga teacher, Sarah Powers. In 2017, Kanti attended a six day Yin Yoga & Silent Retreat with Sarah Powers, deepening her experience of Yin Yoga. Kanti has also assisted Sarah Lo with her Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
