The day begins at 10am, where I will welcome you into The Serenity Barn in the beautiful quiet corner of Bascote, near Southam. We will have a chance to settle, to find a place in the room where you’ll be comfortable and to set up your ‘nest’ for the day. We’ll introduce ourselves very informally and get some idea of what our minds and bodies need right now.
The morning typically consist of daily practices that can nurture us for the particular season we’re in. Please be assured that the practices are suitable for anyone including complete beginners. We then break for a hot lunch with seasonal ingredients - hand made by myself and my mum who makes the best cakes. All dietary needs catered for
In the afternoon we allow ourselves time for deeper nurturing, exploring a restorative / yin practice where postures are held for a longer time, giving us a chance to find space and ease around the joints and deeper connective tissues of the body. There follows an opportunity to have a sauna and/or reflect and rest in the meditation loft before we have a Yoga Nidra practice - deep relaxation
These afternoon practices will also be mindful of the season, looking at the elemental and energetic qualities of nature that inform what we might need in our bodies and our minds.
Please bring warm comfy clothes, layers you can add and remove. The studio is well kitted out with props, mats etc. Feel free to bring your own but be rest assured we have everything we’ll need! If you’re making use of the sauna, please bring swimwear and a towel. Upon booking, if you could let me know your dietary requirements, any injuries or conditions you have.
