Beauty & Abundance Workshop 10am-1pm

In the Hindu tradition, the mother goddess Lakshmi is a symbol of beauty, prosperity and good fortune. The wife and feminine counterpart of the god Vishnu, Lakshmi brings spiritual, material wealth and abundance to her devotees.

To invoke our inner Lakshmi we will use asana, meditation, pranayama, kriyas, chanting and self inquiry.   We will explore the qualities of femininity (regardless of gender), abundance, peace bringing these qualities into balance.

Lakshmi is connected to the sacral chakra and we will be look at yoga asanas targeting this area of our energy body.  We can use our power as individuals to create and manifest a vibrant world.  We all have the ability to transform and develop our potential.  When we create from our hearts rather than what we ‘should’ create, we heal ourselves, experience more beauty and live our life fully.

Lakshmi’s four hands link her to four qualities that make transformation in human life possible. One hand signifies the principles of dharma, the concept of living an ordered, directed life in accordance with cosmic laws. Another symbolises kāma, longing or desire for both spiritual and physical fulfilment. The third hand links her to artha, material comfort and abundance. The final hand symbolises moksha, or self-actualisation.

This will be a fun and interactive workshop where we can explore new ideas, take time for self-enquiry and discover how to take your yoga off the mat.  This workshop will be led by Jackie Dorrian and Julie Bladon.

Suitable for all abilities, beginners are welcome. Refreshments will be provided. We ask if all students could arrive 15 minutes beforehand, as the workshop will start promptly.

Kundalini and Yoga Nidra Workshop ~ 2-4pm

Come and join us for an afternoon of bliss, doing a beautiful Kriya followed by the magical yoga of sleep. We will explore Kundalini yoga and all that it has to offer whilst invoking Lakshmi the deity of abundance.
