Restore and Rejuvenate – a Yoga Day workshop with Daksha Rajagopalan

Restore and Rejuvenate
Incorporating Meditation, Pranayama and Yoga

with Daksha Rajagopalan

Sunday 26 June, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

We all need time to go inwards, to dive deep and be gentle. To nurture ourselves. This workshop is a graceful time for exactly that. Let us practice gentle self-care and mindful compassion towards our hearts: let us restore, and then emerge rejuvenated.

During the workshop we will work with the energies of colour and sound, play with breath and movement, journal, talk and also experience silence. The workshop will include walking meditation, mantra meditation, pranayama/breathing practice and gentle, deeply restorative yoga. Restorative yoga is a practice that is fully supported with blankets, cushions and your willingness to let go and relax. We will also explore different breathing techniques and delve into a variety of meditative and healing practices, some of which you can ‘take home’ and turn into a daily home-practice. I would be happy to support you with this. We will also play
together with the energy of colour, especially the energy of green—the chakra colour of the heart centre. The spaces of healing that we can experience through meditation, breathing, and yoga can become even deeper, more powerful and supportive, when in the company of others.

So come, let us practice together and restore, heal and focus ourselves in the company of other like-minded well-wishers. Calm the nervous system and just allow yourself to be. This workshop is open to ‘complete’ beginners and seasoned practitioners alike.
