Dive into Stillness – Winter Yin Workshop
Yoga Garden, Horsham. 18th January. 10.30am – 1.30pm.
Winter is the time of the year to slow down, to be still, to process the year just gone and to recharge the batteries to get ready for the new growth of Spring. In Chinese medicine this is the time to be nourishing our Kidney Chi. The Kidneys are the source of our Yin and our Yang energy, they are like our batteries. A sign when the are out of balance is when we feel like we are running on empty, when no matter how much we rest we still don’t feel replenished. The Chinese say the Kidneys hold our “Jing” which is our essence energy that we are born with for our life span, the energy from our ancestors.
This workshop will be focusing on nourishing your Kidney Chi through acupressure, Yin poses, meditation, breathwork and Yoga Nidra.
Location – the Yoga Garden at Knepp Wildlife Safaris near Horsham
£35 in advance
£40 on the day

Feedback from a yin workshop:
“Just to say: this was the slowest, deepest and physically effortless Yoga workshop ever. I felt exquisitely calm all day Sunday – in fact, the sense of quiet seemed to deepen even more. What a miraculous process!” Ruth
If you are interested in immersing yourself more in Yin Yoga you might be interested in Louise’s Yin Teacher Training courses in Brighton and Goa.

How To Centre Yourself
A useful tool in times of stress.
1. Feel your connection to the earth, bring awareness to your feet and sitting bones, if you are seated. Straighten your spine as if pulling energy up from the earth right up to the crown of your head.
2. Breathe long slow deep belly breaths. Make the out breath longer and as you exhale let go.
3. Relax the middle line of your body; between your eye brows, your mouth, tongue, jaw and finally your belly.
