Workshops

Yoga workshops allow for a deepening of your practice, an exploration of your inner landscape with time and attention to make some changes.

Yoga and the chakras, insight workshop

Saturday 20th January 2024, 10:00 – 12:00 CET (09:00 – 11:00 GMT)

The workshop is designed to introduce you to the chakras, or energy centres located in your body and connected to the central nervous system. In Sanskrit chakra means wheel, a wheel of moving energy. There are seven main chakras that begin at the base of the body, the pelvic floor area, to the very top of the head.

You will be guided to explore each of these energy centres with a view to understanding where there may be blockages or less energetic flow within your own mind / body.

Through exploring each of the chakras we look to cultivate inner balance and alignment throughout the body and simultaneously the mind.

The workshop involves physical practice, mental practice, a series of meditation sessions and breathing techniques.

You will need a yoga mat, cushion, blanket, eye mask / something to cover the eyes, tea / water.

The workshop will take place on zoom, the cost is €30.

Please get in touch if you wish to enquire further: satty.verbart@gmail.com.

Payment can be made in advance of the workshop by bank transfer, tikkie or paypal.

In this workshop I use a variety of tools and techniques from the world of yoga: movement practice, specific breathing and meditation techniques, mind analysis, and journaling. to help you to achieve the mindset and action plan required to be the best version of who you are on a more regular basis. The mindset aspect is key. This is about taking the time to really understand yourself and what gets in your way.

Yoga, meditation and creativity to unlock your flow state!

Saturday 12th December 10:00 to 12:30 ( group session, via zoom invitation)

An online yoga and creativity workshop to explore how yoga and meditation can unlock the creative portal within all of us. Studies show the correlation between yoga and meditation and a more open flow state 🙂

The workshop will incorporate vinyasa flow yoga, mindfulness and meditation practices and creative expression through drawing or painting.  It is not necessary to be an artist, or an experienced yoga practitioner, simply having an open mind and willingness to explore. The workshop will help enhance internal awareness, self-expression, and mind-body integration.

The materials are up to you, a pencil or lots of coloured pens or even paints, either a canvas or paper, big or small whatever you have! The object of study will be a plant if you have one or something else that is pleasing to the eye with enough form, shape and texture to explore. A vase of flowers is also an option.

(Please note the purpose of the session is not artistic show and tell or critiquing).

Materials required for the session:
Yoga mat, cushion and blanket
Any or all of the following:
Pencil / Pen / Felt tip pens / Paints
Journal or notepad for writing,  and any of the following A4 plain paper / A3 plain paper/ Canvas

I would like to pledge $100  from this workshop to the Centre for Contemplative Research in Colorado. The centre will be researching the nature and potentials of consciousness through a collaboration between scientists and highly trained experienced meditators. Whilst meditation is thousands of years old there is still more to be done to verify the many benefits scientifically. The centre has the blessing and support of the Dalai Lama.

Letting Go, Letting Be

Saturday 20th October 10:00 to 12:30

This workshop will look at what our stress triggers are, at home and in the workplace. What can we do to better manage the trigger and the response? How can we learn to become less reactive so that we don’t hurt ourselves or the people around us?

Letting Go, Letting Be, is about understanding the connection between the mind and body before we even reach the stress trigger.  The relationship is pivotal to our understanding, we can start to see how the trigger manifests itself, catching it early before we react. We will look at how we can change our habitual mode of reacting to one that is more skillful and more responsive.

There will be some yoga practice, guided  and silent meditation breathing exercises to help calm the mind during our stress triggers, and some journal writing.

Please bring a notebook and pen.
