Come and join us in celebrating the Winter Solstice with an afternoon to give you time and space for reflection, rest and ease.

The winter solstice marks the shortest day and longest night of the year; and the official start of winter. The darkest night invites us to fully turn our awareness inwards, to dive deep into the depths of our beings and shed light on the places we have perhaps forgotten or neglected. Like a tree that sheds its leaves, showing the bear bones of its being, we too have the opportunity to shed what no longer serves us and fully stand within the core of our being. It is a wonderful time to reflect back on the year; acknowledging how far we have come, how we have grown and evolved and what still needs nurturing and tending to. By honouring the shadow within us, we bring light to our soul's innermost desires; that which we wish to see manifested out in the world. The darkness within and without is a time then to nurture the soil, the earth of our being, so we can prepare to plant the seeds of our dreams in the Spring time. It is a wonderful time to slow down, rest and gently fall into a greater state of being rather than doing.

We will start with a slow flow yoga practice to allow us to arrive in the body and prepare for the journey inwards. There will be a guided Meditation to allow space for reflection and introspection and explore what we’d like to let go of and what we’d like to plant as seeds for moving forwards into 2019. We will move into a carefully designed and nurturing Yin Yoga practice which will be accompanied by a Gong Bath. We conclude this delightful afternoon with a long Savasana, allowing the cleansing sounds of the gongs to wash over us, and our intentions to settle and take root.
