What you'll do

Enter an explorative journey held in sacred space in this yoga experience. Move from a yang-based flow to a slower yin practice, followed by a nidra meditation, a kirtan (a traditional Indian yoga practice where chanting is accompanied by classical Indian instruments) and a philosophy share.

MOVE FAST: This segment of the workshop will be an explorative and playful yang yoga practice. George takes a functional approach to teaching that puts you in the driver's seat of your own body. It gives you autonomy to move how you 'feel' and deepen your experience of each pose with curiosity and depth.

Through this approach, the intention is to allow guests to drop into a more intuitive understanding of how each moment feels, with the support and guidance from George as an experienced practitioner. George will encourage a playful curiosity whilst remaining in a state of deep respect and understanding of each of our bodies and minds.

MOVE SLOW: The practice will then naturally transition into a slower yin practice, with less guidance from George. This teacher's approach to yin is not to overload you with information about your bones, bodies and muscles. Instead, George will consistently encourage you to drop deeper into an awareness of how you feel. What arises will be unique to you. This practice will give you the time, space and challenge to explore those depths.

The finishing shavasana will be a guided yoga nidra meditation (or 'yogic sleep'), allowing you to take your hands off your experience and drop behind the veil into the subconscious realms. This practice holds a vision to release emotional tension, slow down the nervous system, and allows muscles to relax.

BALANCE: Arising out of the state of nidra, you will slowly lift to the sounds of mantra and song. George will play the harmonium, an Indian instrument used for meditation and mantra. George will be inviting a series of a few songs that will incorporate sacred mantras from the Hindu tradition, whilst weaving in the stories, mythologies and philosophies behind them.

During this phase, you will be welcome to remain lying down, or you can rise up to seated and will be provided with a song sheet to join in. If the feeling takes you, you are welcome to dance and play around the room, releasing any emotions that arise in this deeply held sacred space.
