Spring Yoga & Qigong: The Green Dragon

Daoists believe that when the world began, there was only the Dao, a featureless, empty void pregnant with the potential of all things. The Dao generated patterns of energy, called qi. Qi eventually developed two complementary aspects: yin, which is dark, heavy, and feminine, and yang, which is light, airy, and masculine. Yin energy sank to form the earth, yang energy rose to form the heavens, and both energies harmonised to form human beings. Consequently, the human body holds within it the energies of both the earth and the heavens, making it a microcosm of the world.

The primary symbols of yin and yang in ancient China were the White Tiger and Green Dragon, also symbols of Autumn and Spring.

In this, the second of four seasonal workshops led by Wilmien Bos, we will explore the Green Dragon through a combination of yoga sequences and qigong. So that students can maintain the benefits derived for the workshop, instructions and guidelines for home practice for the duration of the season will be given.

When: Saturday 9th May
Time: 3pm to 5pm
Cost: £25
An Introduction to Forrest Yoga

With a focus on Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit, Forrest Yoga is a challenging and rewarding practice rooted in the principle of being honest with one’s own limits and potential abilities.

Pioneered by world-renowned yogini Ana Forrest, Forrest Yoga incorporates traditional postures modified to address the physical ailments developed from today’s lifestyle: lower and upper back pain, neck and shoulder issues, intestinal disorders, etc. It’s a powerful, internally-focused practice that emphasises how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life.

During this special two-hour workshop, Kerstin De Beer will introduce you to the characteristics and benefits of Forrest Yoga, guiding you through proper alignment, Forrest philosophy, and how to make your yoga practice work for you.   

Open to all levels, Forrest Yoga does not require strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to feel authentically and respond joyfully and honestly.

Lu Jong - Tibetan Healing Yoga

Lu Jong is a simple yet powerful practice that combines movement, mindfulness and rhythmic breathing to help attain a deep harmony of body, mind and spirit. Its many benefits include mental clarity, balanced emotions, physical stability, a more vibrant energy, and increased resistance to disease. It can be practised in any setting by people of all ages and physical abilities, and requires no particular background or beliefs.

During this special 3-hour workshop led by Dr Deniah Pachai you will be taught the foundational practice of Lu Jong (known as the Five Elements Movements). Once learned, this flowing series of exercises can be done in just ten minutes a day.

You will also be introduced to the theory of the Five Elements as they relate to both you and the universe around you, and be given insight into the subtle energy body where it’s thought disease and illness first manifest. And to keep you on track with daily practice, Dr Pachai will share with you a simple motivational tool that can be applied across any habit you wish to transform.
