From the MIND to the SELF

What if you found a way to use your mind as a tool to finding inner peace, clarity and contentment? To find a key to unlock a busy mind and to somehow move closer to a lasting stillness that’s underneath all the chatter?

Join Angela Jessup for this two hour workshop, suitable for yogis of all levels and experience. Through a carefully curated practice of tantric hatha asana, pranayama and meditation, we will explore how your mind works under the lens of the Antah Karana, or the four functions of the mind.

You will be given the tools to begin to master your mind, disidentify with your thoughts, unlock your ability to reach higher states of consciousness and move closer to your truth.

“Understand the mind; study the mind; and know this machinery well, and know also how to manage it.” Swami Sivananda

Mindful Living Book Tour
Apr

6:00 PM18:00

Mindful Living Book Tour

In early 2019 Katie will launch her newest book, 'MINDFUL LIVING, Everyday practices for a sacred and happy life' published by Rockpool.

The book is about the application of 'sadhana' in our lives. Sadhana means ‘conscious spiritual practice’, and it really has little to do with what you’re doing on the outside and everything to do with what is going on inside. For example drinking a cup of tea is a sadhana if it is done with gratitude and elegance; such as we see in the exquisite Japanese tea ceremonies. Sadhana can be applied to anything you do that is uplifting and elevates you beyond the mundane or selfish. Sadhana is always anchored in ahimsa (non-violence, or kindness), because for a practice to be spiritual – filled with spirit – it must not harm another. Sadhana means to act, to do something, to be in the world yet deeply connected to your spirit.

In this book, Katie focus' deeply on yoga practices and philosophy as well as activism, and the rhythm of the seasons according to ayurveda. Katie will encourage you to light candles and create alters as an awakening of magic and mystery. 'Mindful Living' is a tool for growth and transformation, where we come to expect the unexpected and intuition starts to arise in our lives.

The mindful living book tour session includes a free class with Katie Manitsas. The yoga workshop which is asana based (gentle and suitable for all) includes pranayama, meditation and relaxation and lasts for 1 hour, followed by a book reading and signing.

Restorative Yoga and Deep Relaxation
Sep
28
5:30 PM17:30

Restorative Yoga and Deep Relaxation

Traditionally the way that yoga was taught was ‘hatha’ which means forceful. In this way yoga can train the body and the mind to be powerful and strong but not necessarily to relax. A more feminine or life-embracing way to practice yoga is to go with the flow rather than to force the flow. In this restorative yoga practice with Katie Manitsas we will spend time deeply listening to our bodies and moving them slowly in a way that is truly relaxing, nurturing and responsive. We will engage rather than dismiss our senses and the feedback our bodies give us. You’ll feel deeply rejuvenated and energetically restored. This style of yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system which helps us to rest and digest. We will end our practice with a long guided Yoga Nidra relaxation.

Yin Yoga Workshop

Yin Yoga Workshop

Yin Yoga Workshop with Clare Lovelace: How to Cultivate Loving Kindness

This workshop has been designed to heal our connection with ourselves, our physical bodies, each other and our natural world through Yin yoga postures, loving kindness meditation, free movement and deep listening.

We have been conditioned to forget our true nature and slip into trance - identification with our ‘small selves’ that can leave us feeling separated from our bodies, each other, the earth and the truth that we are love. 

This workshop helps us to identify this trance and to bring a healing attention that frees us to live our moments with creativity, wisdom and love. This workshop is for the sole (soul) purpose of healing and you will be sure to experience a divine energetic shift. We will explore how to take these lessons off the mat and into the world, so every moment can be lived wholeheartedly and we can embrace live in all of its magic.
