We warmly invite you to join us for a cosy, candlelit yoga and meditation evening to help you relax body & mind, in comfortable surroundings. A great start to your weekend and ideal for entering winter and the festive season with warmth and stillness in your heart. Or you may be interested in developing your own meditation practice and wish to understand it better.
Meditation is an ancient practice which in very general terms, involves softening the body and stilling the mind. It’s becoming very popular and effective in Western cultures as a preventative ‘tool’ for positive mental health. Whilst we have brilliant, creative minds – our lives are full of distractions and commitments – and our head space gets incredibly busy.
Yoga postures prepare the body for stillness and meditation itself helps us arrive at a quiet, unique place within ourselves.
During the evening, we will practicing some gentle yoga asanas (postures and sequences) to build physical contentment in body (suitable for all abilities). For the more stilling aspects of the evening, we will introduce a Pranayama practice to bring awareness to the breath and improve it’s quality. This will be followed by a guided meditation introducing you to techniques you can take away for further practice at home.
This event is suitable for all abilities and if you prefer to sit on a chair or on the ground the choice is yours. No previous experience of Yoga or Meditation is necessary…just bring yourself in comfortable clothing, warm socks and your favourite blanket.
Light, warm refreshments will be provided.
If you have any questions or would like more information please don’t hesitate to get in touch. If you’d like to sign-up click here to book.
We look forward to welcoming you. With love, Rona & Lis xx
‘Every Moment Matters’
Sunday 7th October 2018, 10am-12.30pm, Daviot Village Hall, Aberdeenshire
A morning of Yoga with Lis Barron & Rona Main to help you ease into Autumn with your feet on the ground and an open heart.
After a beautiful and active summer this event helped us align with the energies of Autumn. As nature slows, the leaves changing colour is one of the first signs of winters approach and while our bodies want to move in natures direction, our minds can conflict and insist on charging ahead regardless.
This session focused on brining the body and mind into balance. We enjoyed an energising sequence of postures followed by a warming pranayama (breathing exercise) to help clear and cleanse the system and slow the mind in preparation for a beautiful ‘Autumn focused’ guided meditation. We all left feeling grounded, connected with the time of the year and rejuvenated to enjoy the months ahead.
