Here is a list of our Yoga Workshops in Stirling

July 20th – Mindfulness Continuation of Practice

6pm – 8pm

This is for anyone with an experience of mindfulness – perhaps through Susie’s courses or events, or perhaps via another teacher or online course. The aim of the continuation sessions is to allow us to expand deeper into our practice, and to share this space with others. Community is a really important part of mindfulness, and the experience of practising with others is so different from practising individually.

The theme of this two-hour practice is yet to be decided – so if you want to come along, and there’s a particular topic you’re interested in, do get in touch.

Having some understanding of practice is really helpful, as these sessions don’t start at the beginning!

Please get in contact with Susie with any queries, or to book directly to avoid the booking fee – susie@pauseandbreathe.co.uk

July 22nd – Yin Yoga Workshop

2:00pm – 4:00pm

£15

2 Hour mindful, slow and deep practice

This workshop is suitable for all levels; time will be spent going over each posture to ensure that everyone get the most out of their practice

Yang Yoga (think Power, Vinyasa, hot Yoga, Ashtanga) Is great for exercising our Yang tissues, our muscles. Yin Yoga on the other hand allows us to work beyond the muscles, and carefully and safely exercising our Yin Tissues (our connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, bones, joints) The postures will all be done on the floor; we will hold the postures for between 1-3 mins

Although Yin is a simple practice this is not restorative yoga, we are gently and mindfully stressing our yin tissues. It can be very challenging to hold the postures for the length of time required, it will test you in a very different way than your yang practice.

Please contact Carly to book on 07769179352 or carlyramsayyoga@hotmail.com
