Monthly Mindfulness Meditation Session

Monthly Mindfulness Meditation Session

If you are looking to find ways to create some quality 'Me Time' away from the busyness, to be quiet, to be with like-minded people - normal people just like you (not super meditating, levitating yogis!) navigating as best they can through life, then this could really be perfect for you.  

Can you imagine having more peace, calm and balance so that whatever arises you are able to deal with it with more ease?  And feel more like yourself? And how would it be if you could learn and practice ways to reduce stress, overwhelm, fear, anger and anxiety? 

Come along - this workshop is open to everyone.  We have walls you can sit up against, even chairs if needed.  This workshop and series is designed to help undo the complications and tensions of daily life and allow in more simplicity and relief.  These practices are easy to do and will help you in daily life too, so you will learn tools to take home and to work and to wherever else you are seeking to bring more simplicity and peace.

Kirtan with Jac & Andy

An evening of Kirtan, Satsang and Supper
with Jac and Andy

Sunday, 25 November 2018 from 18:00-21:00 - Mokshala Yoga (Saffron Walden)

A joyful evening of Kirtan, Satsang and supper to warm your, heart, body and soul!

Bhakti, the yoga of open-hearted devotion and compassion is said to be the swiftest way to lift the spirit, transcend the heaviness of life and discover one's own true nature. Kirtan is one of the main tools of the bhakti yogi - it is the yoga of sound, using sacred mantra, each syllable of which creates a vibration within the physical and subtle body.

All welcome no physical yoga experience necessary.

Go With The Flow - A Jivamukti Yoga Workshop

Go With The Flow - A Jivamukti Yoga Workshop

In these dizzying times we are facing constant distractions that can leave us feeling unbalanced, anxious, overwhelmed. Life can seem complicated and difficult to navigate with a sense of ease and calm.

This workshop will use different classical yoga techniques to bring you back to a place of focus and balance away from the busyness of your day-to-day lives.

You will discover 2 things to help you more easily go with the flow. Find out how a single point of focus may be all you need.

If you are looking to simplify, reduce complications and find new ways to be more easeful in life, then book now. Click on the link below to reserve now as final spaces remain.

Expect a flowing vinyasa sequence of yoga asana alongside mantra meditation, philosophy, an uplifting musical soundtrack and having fun finding how you can get into the flow regardless of the challenges that appear.

Learning the art of flow has never been so much fun!

“To overcome the anxieties and depressions of contemporary life, individuals must become independent of the social environment to the degree that they no longer respond exclusively in terms of its rewards and punishments. To achieve such autonomy, a person has to learn to provide rewards to herself. She has to develop the ability to find enjoyment and purpose regardless of external circumstances.”

― Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

"Regularly entering the "flow state of mind" makes us happier and more relaxed human beings. But how do we know when we're in it and how do we get there?" Esther Ekhart.
