    Teacher: Christine Withiel

    Dates: 05:30pm - 07:00pm 

    christine withieleYin yoga is a practice for quietening the mind, the body and the breath. A time to sense what is held in the body, and to let go. Stress creates patterns in the body which become habits which set into posture. Yin yoga is a gentle way of easing the tissues back to their original patterns. In a yin yoga class, we move into a posture as far as your body goes comfortably, we call this the edge, we hold the posture for a few minutes in stillness. You will need a yoga mat, a block and a folded blanket.

    dorian haarhof 2019Looking at your image in a clear stream,
    you answer the question by your very presence

    I invite you to a zoom Zen Pen wordshop. Why Zen Pen?

    Zen (Chinese chán ‘quietude’) invites us to be present, to live and write simply.
    Pen (Latin penna ‘feather’) refers to both practising the art of writing and to the implements we use for writing. It also invites us to play in a safe place - as in playpen.

    In this wordshop we explore the connection between writing and meditation. Both these states of grace slow us down so we can live in the moment. They increase our awareness and wake us up. We look with new eyes and hear with new ears. We write and meditate on the many changes and transformations we experience as we journey along the river of our lives. We consider how creativity steadies the boat and how writing helps us dip the oars into dark water so we may navigate the river safely.
