From Surviving to Thriving with Serena Louth - Workshop at Yoga House, London - Catford and Lee

From Surviving to Thriving with Serena Louth

Tuesday 11 May | 6-8pm | £15 | Online

In this workshop we’ll be diving in to what it is that lights you up so you can move from a place of surviving to thriving. If you feel like you’re living life on autopilot, disconnected from your self-worth and exhausted from giving away all your time, this is for you. Serena will be sharing how to shift your energy and mindset so that you can feel more empowered, purposeful and joyful every single day.

Self Worth Coach Serena’s mission has been to help prevent as many people as possible from feeling as lost, directionless and disconnected as she once did. To guide others towards a more mindful and intentional way of living, one where they value themselves, feel connected to their bodies, find community with like minded sisters and feel fulfilled every day. Most of all Serena strives to empower people to take their happiness into their own hands and to have the courage and self-belief to go after their dreams.

However, Gong Bathing is not advised for those who are in the first or third trimester of pregnancy, have a pacemaker, or who suffer from Menieres syndrome, have a history of psychotic episodes, or who experience epileptic seizures in the state between sleeping and waking.

Opening to Joy | Creating a Calm & Tranquil Heart + Sound Bath with Sasha Gabbe & Martina Saorin - Workshop at Yoga House, London - Catford and Lee

Opening to Joy | Creating a Calm & Tranquil Heart + Sound Bath with Sasha Gabbe & Martina Saorin

Saturday 22nd May | 2-5pm | £30 | Catford Studio

A workshop of Yoga Flow with Qi Gong + Yin Yoga + Sound Bath

Yoga House opens the doors in May and welcomes the community back to share practice together.

We are emerging from a crisis and perhaps you are feeling uncertain about the future, anxious about returning to ‘normal’ or overwhelmed about what comes next. The last year has shown us that we are all interconnected. Perhaps some of the positives that have come out of the crisis is that we have become more open to developing caring and compassionate relationships with our family, our friend’s and our neighbours.

Sasha will share practices that can help you connect to the heart and open to change. These will be useful tools to navigate our relationships with others and the wider community, through the path of compassion, peace and empathy.

Sasha will weave these principles into the workshop as we gather. She will guide you through grounding practices of Mindfulness meditation, a Yoga Flow with Qi Gong and Yin Yoga to help create a calm and tranquil heart, as we transition into the Fire element (which relates to the heart) + season of Summer. These practices can help you manage your emotions and anchor you in the here and now.

We shall close with a blissful Sound Bath journey, to help open your heart.

At the end of the Yin Yoga practice you will be encouraged to settle into a supportive Savasana to experience a blissful one-hour Sound bath led by Martina. A sound bath is a form of sound therapy where the gongs and other instruments are played in a therapeutic way to bring relaxation and healing. (The term gong bath means that you are bathed in sound waves.) It is a simple yet profound way to connect with the core of our being and tune our body at the cellular level through the gentleness of its resonance. It requires nothing but receptivity to be fully experienced, but it has to be experienced in order to be completely understood.

When the Gongs are played, the sound vibrations immediately quiet the mind, allowing relaxation in the whole body and beyond.

Mindfulness meditation

We will start by sitting together and settling into the body, bringing awareness to breath and mindfulness of thoughts. Sasha will share simple yet transformative mindfulness meditation techniques.

Qi Gong / Yoga Flow

Sasha will then share a practice which will be a fusion of Qi Gong and Yoga Flow. Qi Gong means ‘energy cultivation’ and the exercises will focus on creating a calm and tranquil heart. These gentle rhythmic exercises will be weaved together with more familiar Asanas of a Yoga Flow.

Yin Yoga

The final phase will be a Yin Yoga practice which helps release the deep fascia of the body, which also supports our joints and organs. This can be useful to increase our range of movement and to create more ease within our bodies. Yin Yoga can also create a smooth flow of Qi throughout the body that has the potential to be beneficial both physically and emotionally. The Yin practice will focus on opening the heart and upper body Meridian pathways. Sasha will also share acupressure points for balancing the emotions.
