Mobility, Creativity & Fluidity @ Indaba Yoga, LONDON

Mobility, Creativity & Fluidity 

When we think about yoga asana quite often we picture a set of shapes that can be made if we follow certain alignment principles. Theres no doubt that this can be really beneficial for many practitioners. However so often it can have the result of alienating and frustrating the student when they feel that they are not able to arrive at the perfect place.

Neurologically speaking this packs quite a powerful punch. 

The creative teacher (and practitioner) is able to craft a practice that feels inclusive for all levels of ability. An understanding of how joints move - how to get better range of motion, as well as building strength, control and working playfully can often open the practice of yoga up for many people. The missing part of the jigsaw is often neurology, what we’re thinking when we move, how our brain fires and wires new neural pathways and what result that has within the body.

When we think beyond asana, beyond the shape as a definitive we are able to place more importance on the awareness. It becomes elevated, joyful and creates change in the brain and the body. 

This workshop will help you to understand how to move in a way that feels really good. 

A must for all teachers interested in understanding better how to help their students get more from the practice and for all practitioners wanting to take their practice to a much deeper level.

Workshop @ Yogarise, Peckham, London

POWERFUL PRACTICES

Most of us really have no idea just how powerful we are and what we have access to within ourselves. Deeply entrenched conditioning has turned many of us into docile, caged animals. We have become too comfortable, too passive, we tolerate ill health, settle for less, cope badly with stress and ultimately all of this serves to disconnect us from our own great power. When we deeply connect to our highest self through the complete practice of yoga we begin to dissolve old ways of being and tired limitations. Understanding and experiencing the potential of the mind, the body and their effect on the nervous system and immunity keeps us awake, healthy, aligned and anchored to our purpose and deeply in touch with ourselves.

This workshop will encourage you to locate the part of you which resonates with the universe and rekindle and reaffirm that connection for extremely powerful self-healing. We will move through a potent combination of creative and out of the box asana, mantra and breath work to unlock the force of the spirit and create change in the nervous system.

This will be a dynamic full spectrum, explorative yet inclusive practice for all levels, with an emphasis on asana, pranayama and mantra to awaken the energetic body and spirit ready for transformation. Expect your notions of your own body and mind to be challenged - let go and feel all kinds of glorious!

Suleyman's Garden Retreat - Turkey

IMG_0971.JPG

Magical & Wild Turkey

a complete return to nature July 13th-20th 2019

INTO THE WILD!

“Quite simply the best yoga retreat I have ever been on. Richer, fuller, deeper and all encompassing.”

- Greg 2014

"I felt so clear and determined when I arrived in London last Saturday. Naomi, your work definitely has effects beyond the body, I felt with the energy and power of a dragon when I arrived to my normal day to day life which is absolutely uncommon in me."

- Gabriela 2018

"Thanks so much for the last week, it really was incredible. I'm so happy to have found a teacher that is basically packaging up all of the things I'm interested in - an amazing set of practices with heavy weight knowledge and experience to back it all up"

 - Jonathan 2018

 

Suleyman's Garden is an incredible venue which offers the best of everything you could possibly want for a yoga retreat - sunsets over dinner, mountain views, clear blue waters to swim in, shady spots to lounge in, plus a beautiful space with a cool breeze to practice in. It is right in the middle of nature, it's quite hard to articulate the powerful effects of this - but trust me, it's special. You will feel it. 

Attendees can look forward to two sessions of transformative yoga practices a day; a powerful, dynamic and creative morning practice followed later on by a mixture of restorative, breath workshops, yin, and meditative sessions.

The retreat includes three vegetarian meals a day - the vast majority of food prepared is actually grown by Suleyman himself who lives and works on the land. It is delicious, varied, plentiful and full of nourishment. 

In between practices most people head off down the track to a truly beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline and swim in the sea. We spend the day chilling in the shade, lounging on the rocks and swimming and snorkelling before coming up for our evening practices. 

This retreat will challenge you, guide you, help you to release some of the things that bind you and get you ready to move forward into the rest of your life – a fitter, healthier and happier YOU!

Most people arrive on yoga retreats on their own - which is perfectly normal and totally acceptable! In terms of accommodation we can pair you with someone wonderful or you can stay in your own cabin and have some space to yourself. Very little time is spent in the rooms but regardless - there is so much space around, everyone gets time to themselves whenever they want it!

PRICING:

£850 in twin sharing / £935 in twin ensuite

£935 in single cabin / 

£935 in twin ensuite / £1070 in single ensuite

To book a £200 deposit is required to reserve your space made payable to:

Naomi Absalom, Halifax sc: 110665 ac: 00251693

TRAVEL:

Travel days are Saturdays so look for flights leaving and arriving on Saturday 13th and departing on Saturday 20th July. There are options to arrive earlier and leave later and we can help you with sorting that and spending a few days in Gocek nearby. We can help you out should that be what you wish to do. 

For more info or to book please just send an email and we'll get back to you asap!

We look forward to welcoming you…

The Electric Body @ Harbour Yoga, Farnham

The Electric Body

In the past few decades, there has been a revolution in how we perceive the body. What appears to be an object, a three-dimensional anatomical structure, is actually a magical and ever evolving process, a constant flow of energy and information.

In yoga the concept of Prana is very specific. when we speak of Prana we mean the original life force, which is the very basis for health and well being both for body and mind. When your body is alive with Prana, you feel alert, energetic, clear - literally buzzing with vibrancy. You start to see the world differently and the world starts to see a different you!

This workshop will help you expand your awareness of the energetic body to build all the power you could possibly need to create a new reality by locating the part of you that resonates with the universe and rekindling and reaffirming that connection. We will move through a potent combination of asanas, while applying bandhas, mantra and breath work to unlock the force of the spirit.

This will be a full spectrum practice for all levels, with as much emphasis on pranayama and chanting as there is asana to awaken the energetic body and connect you to source. 

Please contact vicky@harbouryoga.co.uk for more info and to book.

The Liberated Teacher @ Indaba Yoga

The Liberated Teacher @ Indaba Yoga

There is a need more than ever to support teachers in taking a necessary step into the deeper layers of their teaching practice which can only be accessed through continuous and regular mentoring in combination with ongoing self-practice and reflection.

Learning how to sensitively balance and integrate our own necessary exploration with the essential techniques for holding space for others in a powerful, yet non-intrusive way creates liberated, assured and established teachers. 

This workshop will introduce you to practical ways in which to create an anchored and grounded space for your students development. We will look at key techniques for structuring well rounded and inclusive classes, plus tips on when and how to confidently move beyond a typical 'class plan' and into actively listening and responding to the room. We will also discuss how to weave aspects of philosophy, meditation, pranayama and mantra into the practice in a clear yet accessible way, plus game changing techniques to build confidence in your own voice and ability. 

The workshop will end with an extended Q&A session.

Naomi is the founder and creator of ‘Liberate & Elevate’ - one of the first mentorships for yoga teachers to appear in London. She is deeply passionate about supporting teachers and has been leading sold out programmes and retreats for teachers for over 6 years. Her last Liberate & Elevate workshop for teachers at Indaba sold out overnight.
