FRIDAY EVENINGS - MYOFASCIAL RELEASE & RELAXATION


One of the most profound practices that help you to release the body deeply, this is a low impact class combining long Yin yoga holds, myofascial release and guided relaxation with essential oils & soothing sounds. Our bodies hold tension, physically & emotionally. From the body holding its posture from day to day, injuries, imbalance, muscle weakness/ tightness and habitual patterns we can feel achey, tired and sometime clunky in our bodies. This delicious practice releases the whole body. We take our time to move slowly through the postures. We also use a ball or hands to massage, spread and manipulate the fascia (our inner spider web like fabric). After rolling and massaging the different fascial meridian lines we arrange ourselves into our Yin postures, using cushions and all things supportive to settle into the pose for 2-3 minutes.


Monthly Friday evenings 6.30-7.45pm

£10 per person

STARTING - Friday 12th Jan!


+ Enjoy a slow practice working with the muscles, joints and connective tissues.

+ Myofascial release to unlock tension in specific areas.

+ Yin yoga to deeply stretch the whole body, increasing flexibility & improving range of movement.

+ Deep relaxation for restful sleep.


What is Myofascial release? Fascia is a fabric like web that surrounds and supports muscles, organs, bones and nerve fibers. It interweaves itself within the WHOLE body.


This connective tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. When stressed, it tightens up. It’s designed to stretch as you move and if we are doing repetitive movements that over work an area of the body, when we become sedentary and if we experience trauma like an injury/surgery even emotional this will cause the fascia to tighten around muscles, which can then limit mobility and cause painful knots, aches and tightness to develop.


+ Reduces stress & anxiety

+ Improves circulation

+ Aids sleep

+ Calms the mind

+ Improves range of movement

+ Increases flexibility

+ Aids in rehabilitating injuries


Within this class we learn techniques to release fascia, loosing and lubricating tight and tender spots. You will leave practice lighter, more spacious, the body will feel easier to move, calmer and more fluid. Opening the physical body unlocks the mind, hand in hand they are connected, a stressful mind = tight and stressed body.






 



SATURDAYS - SOUND BATHING IN THE FOREST


Come and settle in the beautiful forest space at Wyre Forest, this is a beautiful wooden building with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the forest. This is a sound bath only session without a yoga practice, so enjoy a restful practice where you lie down, soak in nature and be guided into a deep state of rest. You will be guided through a gentle body scan meditation to ease any tension or discomfort, alongside that will be gentle sounds to draw the mind into the soundscape that soon unravels. Rest and let the mind be soothed by crystal singing bowls, tibetan bowls, gong, angelic voice, drum, rain stick, chimes and many more beautiful sounds. This is a live set played by Victoria, unplanned, just flowing with the energies of the space and participants, truly magical and unlike anything you would have experienced before!

Accompanying the guided relaxation will be live sounds, from singing bowls, chimes, drum, rainstick, hand pan, gong and voice this will then lead into a full sound bath experience allowing your body & mind to move through a journey of resting and releasing.
