Hatha Yoga & Meditation Drop-In Class @ Brighton Natural Health Centre
Feb 21 @ 18:30 – 19:45

A yoga journey from explorative movement towards settling into stillness to end with a guided meditation, with space left for silence. Emphasis in the moving practice will be around awakening body connection and awareness, through a focus on spinal movement and how we open out from the centre to the periphery. Postures can be standing, sitting; dynamic or restorative and are sequenced to ease open muscles and posture in a safe and body intelligent way, lead by the breath and kind, mindful attention. Students will be supported to practice at the level of their body needs. The ending meditation can be practised seated or lying where needed, and support for meditation posture will be given. It will be 10-15 minutes of the class and follow differing focuses, all lead in through Mindfulness of Breathing.

Yoga and Somatics to help relieve Stress & Burnout Workshop at The Get Well Show, Olympia, London @ Olympia
Feb 23 @ 11:45 – 12:45

As outlined in her book The De-Stress Effect (Hay House 2015), modern psycho-social stress is difficult to escape and has profound effects on body and mind. As yoga is a system for ‘stilling the mind’, its inherent mindful attention and embodied awareness can help unravel habits of racing mind and holding tension in key areas like the lower back, shoulders and neck. The Somatic component includes rocking and pulsing movements with the breath, that soothe the nervous system and provide a focus for the mind. This will be a slow and gentle physical practice, suitable for everyone – you will be encouraged to listen to your own body and needs.

Healing Yoga All Levels – Drop in @ Brighton Natural Health Centre
Feb 24 @ 11:30 – 12:45

This is a restorative class with gentle, somatic (deeply felt) movement to help facilitate recovery from illness and injury, but also perfect for anyone looking for stress-relief and deep body connection.

Charlotte safely and intuitively helps students to reconnect to their bodies at a pace that suits them. Classes include yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (yogic breathing) and meditation – all at levels and depths that can be modified to suit individual needs. Props are used to help the body open up and support muscles that need protection as they are encouraged to strengthen at a safe rate.

There is a strong emphasis on connecting with the breath, to help guide students to feel embodied, to cultivate presence and to accept whatever arises in each moment. Inviting tension release from the body and stilling the mind in this way helps us both cope with and facilitate recovery from a wide range of conditions, including stress-related illnesses, ME and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Teaching Yoga for Stress and Burnout – with Leah Barnett @ Yogacampus - London Finsbury Park
Mar 6 @ 09:30 – Mar 8 @ 17:00

Stress is a major part of 21st century living, with the World Health Organization estimating that by 2020, stress-related disorders will be the second leading cause of disabilities in the world. This epidemic is an underlying cause of low energy, anxiety, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), loss of sex drive, insomnia, depression, tooth-grinding, high blood pressure, skin problems, infertility, weight gain and heart disease.

Yoga and meditation practices offer a very real (and well-researched) method to allow heightened body systems to calm back down and teach individuals tools to self-soothe. The aim of yoga to ‘still the mind’ through body awareness and connection, intercepting the chattering monkey of the analytical left brain, so dominant in Western cultures.

Burnout is a term used to describe the emotional and physical collapse that can occur after long-term or chronic stress. At this point where the mind-body is on ‘constant alert’, teachers need to be able to guide students into a sense of safety and stillness so that they can notice and be with intense sensations without exacerbating reactive tendencies.

This course will explore how psycho-social stress – the ‘neck-up’, ruminating stress we tend to get stuck in in modern societies – can affect people and how the modern body needs special consideration for the way the average student lives their lives. You will understand how to teach yoga in a way which is effective, gentle and appropriate to the individual with stressed body systems, their particular responses, energetics, mind-sets and postural considerations. Grounding, mindful and somatic work will be explored to help you promote healing, energy and positive change in your teaching.

The course can be taken on its own or followed (at any time) by the one for Teaching Yoga for ME/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (see below) for accreditation for the full 5 day course, on completion of a final assessment.
