Yoga Retreat

27
to Apr 28

Yoga Retreat

Saturday 10:00 - 15:00 & Sunday 10:00 - 15:00

New to Walworth Garden, Ella White presents 'Elemental Fundamentals'; An introduction to Yoga guided by a journey through the elements. 

Join Ella and journey through the elements using gentle body and breath work, creative visualisations and meditations to dive deep into our human experience, supported by the beautiful surrounds of Walworth Garden on this unique, urban mini-retreat in our London town. 

Starting with earth as our foundation, we will begin the practice and exploration of yoga (union) as experienced through our connection to earth as the basic force of creation.

We then move to the element of water, how is it felt both within and around us? What are we able to 'flow with' in life? Where is our resistance, and how can we ease into it?


Beyond water, we will stoke the inner fires of our passion as we travel into the more dynamic element of fire. What ignites us? How can we learn to transmute our anger into passion and our impatience into acceptance?

Air then becomes the vehicle of flight to deepen our elemental experience through the power of a yogic approach, and practice. What fills our sails and blows us forward into better connection with both the natural world, and our own inner landscape? How can the element of air be harnessed to heal and inspire us in our day-to-day lives? 

Beyond this, and all becomes oh so subtle! Ether is our final destination... can this element actually be experienced within a human body? In fact, what even is it? Can we tap into the force of sonic spaciousness?

Friday 18:00 - 21:00 & Saturday 10:00 - 17:00

The session will be for any women, gender non-binary and trans folk for whom the issues are of interest.
All welcome - whether you’re new to some of these ideas/conversations or want to contribute of your own body of knowledge
.

This workshop will use Threads - a DIY, not-for-profit book - as a basis for information exchange and shared conversation about anatomy, sex & gender, and the various differences and commonalities of experiences throughout the menstrual cycle. It will look at what gets called ‘PMS’, and also at what gets called ‘mental health’, and will critique biomedical stories we are given about the body/mind as part of opening up space to explore our different and similar lived experiences, and to consider both what health and what ‘self-care’ mean in the context of social justice and social change. We will also look at herbs and self-care for some common related health issues.

Facilitated by Lisa Fannen
