Movin’ On Up ~ with Liz Lark & Jean Hall
1.30 – 4. 30 pm, £45
Through a combination of somatic movement patterns, creative vinyasa sequencing and personal enquiries, culminating in a
sound bath for deep relaxation, this workshop will explore ways to harmonise with and embrace the uplifting energy of spring. By learning how to root, we can awaken
our capacity to rise with a renewed sense of inner steadiness, resilience, resourcefulness, flexibility and purpose.
In this workshop, we will explore:
– The breath’s cycle of renewal and release, expansion and condension, rise and fall.
– The principle of yielding into the earth to provide an upward rebound and reach into space.
– An understanding of the tendons and ligaments in the body, and how they relate to creating flexibility, mobility, resilience and strength.
Jean and Liz met whilst studying a masters degree in Performing Arts and since have taught workshops
and retreats together every year since 1998.

Travelling towards Summer Solstice where light and dark are equal,
we dive into practise exploring the terms “Vikalpa, Sankalpa, Kalpana”, cultivating mind support
As well as body support in our asana ( breathing seat). Meditations and biofeedback with cooling pranayama will
balance a steadying, structural flow practice.
Autumn Equinox we turn inward to nourish the interior world, return to Earth & prepare the heart hearth for winter.
