Workshops and practice on cultivating Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a way of being and we can create this by practicing being present and in the moment by coming out of the head and into the body through using the senses to tune into our immediate environment. Techniques include breath meditation, mindful eating, mindful movement and mindful walking. We may also choose to pay awareness to an activity we regularly undertake such as cleaning our teeth in the morning. Scientific evidence from the Oxford university has shown that over time these practices rewire the neural pathways in the brain so and can reduces stress, increase overall wellbeing and reduce pain and depression.

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is a nice flowing solid style of yoga and perfect for beginners. It is a branch of yoga that emphasizes physical exercises to master the body along with mind exercises to withdraw it from external objects. The word haṭha literally means “force” in Sanskrit, and may have this association because the early Indians believed that its practice was challenging and “forced its results to happen” on the yogi.The term “Hatha yoga” connotes a system of supplementary physical techniques within the broader concept of Yoga

Yin yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—for beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. Its teaching in the Western world, beginning in the late 1970s, was founded by martial arts expert and Taoist yoga teacher Paulie Zink.

Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

Yin yoga  is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but rather as a complement to more active forms of yoga and exercise
