This workshop is intended for anyone interested in attending an enjoyable Yoga session and continues the series of workshops the North Committee ran last year. 

This will be a 2.5 hour workshop with refreshments provided. 

Jacqui is a British Wheel of Yoga trained teacher and is on the BWY committee for the region as the Regional Training Officer. She has held regular workshops and classes here in the North East since 2007. 

The venue, Belmont Parish Hall, is not one we have used for workshops before, but it is a lovely venue on the outskirts of Durham and used for yoga classes during the week. It is closer to Cleveland than the venue for our first workshop, while still being accessible to those in Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and in Durham itself. It is easily accessible off the A1 and we hope that will encourage our members to attend. 

Jacqui says of her session:

The workshop brings together techniques from James Knight's "Gentle Somatic Yoga" and Ruthy Alon's "Bones for Life" programme, both of which have their origins in the work of Moshe Feldenkrais.

We'll be exploring how these simple practices can help increase body awareness, improve posture and general mobility and maybe make some familiar Yoga asanas feel that little bit more comfortable and accessible too. 

We'll be starting the session with a simple breathing technique designed to calm the mind and focus the attention and ending with a lovely relaxation. 

Please bring your usual Yoga equipment, a scarf and a small cushion or folded towel as well.
