Family Yoga Workshop: Autumn - Rest, Reset, Revitalise

A collaboration with Charlotte Solomon of Little Yogis Manchester

Sunday October 20th - 2.30-4.30pm

One Yoga Studio, Chorlton, Unit 14, Albany Trading Estate, Chorlton, M21 0AZ

What comes to mind when you imagine autumn? The leaves falling off the trees, the dropping temperatures, going back to school, the harvesting of crops, less light in the early morning and late evening and cosy jumpers perhaps. The days become shorter, we are exposed to less sunlight, work and school schedules pile up, and as we approach the end of the first half term of the school year, lots of little people will have tired bodies and minds. No surprise then that many of us spend the transition between summer and winter rushing around, not looking after ourselves so well, fighting off colds and flus!

But autumn can also be a revitalising and replenishing period of supporting ourselves and our families to stay well and supporting our physical and emotional health. This workshop will offer yoga and mindfulness practices and activities on the theme of Autumn for the whole family. There will be ample opportunities to rest, reset and revitalise as we look at tuning in with nature to start preparing our bodies and minds for winter.

Family yoga is open to everyone- children aged 4 and up, teens, mums and dads, grandparents, carers, uncles and aunties and family friends. You do not need to be strong, fit or flexible to come, just prepared to take part, enjoy, calm and connect. No prior experience of yoga is required. Everything you need is provided although of course you may bring your own mat.

This workshop will offer you:
- breathing practices to calm the mind and body
- partner and family postures
- relaxation
- mindful activities for everyone
- the experience of sound
- time together to nourish

Investment is £20 for one adult and one child, with each additional adult or child costing £5

Family Yoga Workshop: Gratitude

A collaboration with Charlotte Solomon of Little Yogis Manchester

Sunday November 24th - 2.30-4.30pm

One Yoga Studio, Chorlton, Unit 14, Albany Trading Estate, Chorlton

As we settle into winter and move towards December, ‘tis the season of giving as well as receiving as Christmas time also approaches. This is a great time to practice gratitude as a family to cultivate the strong intention of giving thanks for what we already have in our lives. Society frequently tells us that we need ‘more, more, more’; it takes regular practice and effort to become aware of what we already have and to be content with this. Adults and children can often teach each other about gratitude: children have a different view of the world and often experience daily events in a completely different to adults which can be refreshing, playful and loving.

This workshop will offer yoga and mindfulness practices and activities on the theme of Gratitude for the whole family. There will be ample opportunities to reflect, move, breathe and play as we learn together in families and as a group. Plus, of course, a deep relaxation as we nurture our bodies and minds in this mid winter period.
