Hatha Yoga & Meditation Drop-In Class @ Brighton Natural Health Centre
Apr 26 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

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.

Teaching Yoga for Stress and Burnout – with Leah Barnett @ Yogacampus - Finsbury Park
Apr 26 @ 9:30 pm – Apr 28 @ 5:00 pm

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.

Healing Yoga All-levels Class

This is a restorative and gentle class which can help to facilitate recovery, but good 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, with the aim of correcting disordered breathing patterns that can add to our operating below our optimal physical and emotional potential. Moving tension from the body and stilling the mind in this way helps us both cope with and recover from a wide range of conditions, including stress-related illnesses, ME and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Mindful & Somatic Yoga Drop In – All Levels @ The Loft at Little Dippers
Apr 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Mindful & Somatic Yoga Drop In - All Levels @ The Loft at Little Dippers

A yoga journey to open up the body and soothe the brain and nervous system. Beginning with a meditative, somatic practice, we arrive into the body and meet ourselves where we are. From this grounding, awareness and attunement into our inner landscape, we can then move from the centre in a more integrated way, feeling out what we need moment to moment. So whether the journey through different postures involves floorwork, standing, dynamic or restorative, there is the space and kind attention for each person to move in ways that feel safe, supportive and opening. In this way we can ease open muscles, fascia and posture in a safe and body intelligent way, with an emphasis on the breath and kind, mindful attention.

No classes on bank holidays.

Yoga Weekends at Gayles Retreat, East Sussex @ Gayles Retreat
May 3 – May 5 all-day

Yoga, food, countryside and relaxation in a beautiful setting…

– including Soundbath Saturday night

Rejuvenate, relax and de-stress with Charlotte Watts over a long and luxurious weekend at a truly stunning location in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Your programme will include two daily yoga sessions, alongside options to join a silent walk, nutrition talk and evening mindfulness meditations – or simply take some time in the countryside, relax or chat with others.

Yoga content will vary according to time of day, more energising and opening in the mornings, moving to relaxing and restoring towards the end of the day and optional late night meditation. The teachings for the weekend will be somatic, explorative, restorative, meditative and influenced by Feldenkrais, Qi Gong and other practices that step away from an emphasis on reaching particular forms or goals within asana. Through embodied awareness, there will be an emphasis on recognising and offering kind attention to the habits and expectations we may spend our time retreading in our work and personal lives. See the full sample programme below.

There is also a treat on the Saturday night, with Ruth Summers of Dao Natural Health running a Therapeutic Soundbath. You can fully relax as the beautiful and therapeutic sounds of gongs, Himalayan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, rainsticks and therapeutic percussion wash over you; helping to relax the system on all levels of being; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically/spiritually, bringing calm to the body and mind and inviting a state of deep relaxation similar to meditation. The sound initiates a ‘conversation’ with the system and creates a space within which an individual may see themselves and their process more clearly, offering the potential for deep transformation.

Mindful & Somatic Yoga Workshop – Soften and Release Upright @ Brighton Natural Health Centre
May 12 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Open, breathe, relax, let go…. These mindful, meditative and deep workshops are suitable for anyone needing to make space and time to breathe deeply, reconnect with their bodies and still their minds. You will experience practical antidotes to the stresses of modern life – from the postural issues of sitting on chairs and hunching over computers to the ‘busy brain’ effects of constant stimulus and psycho-social pressure.

Gentle and opening asanas build up to stronger poses and back down again to a restorative practice; all sequenced to prepare the body for meditation, mantra, pranayama and yoga nidra (deep relaxation).

Each workshop will have different content and follow a theme to support an aspect of our bodies and minds relevant to the time of year or season. Suitable for all levels and a great complement to a more dynamic practice.

Soften and Release Upright Workshop:
Modern stress patterns and postural habits often have us curling into ourselves and shutting down the fronts of our bodies. This is often felt from the psoas muscle that allows us to stand upright and where tightness and tension can be the cause of many lower back, hip, belly and breathing issues.

Here we will explore this deep muscular channel in a progressively softening, loosening, fluid and opening manner to be felt into release in our whole bodies and minds, allowing easier upright strength.
