Meetup: Devils Dyke @ 2.30pm, at the bus stop / car park beside the Devils Dyke Hotel @ Dyke Road, Poynings, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 8YJ.

Do you feel like getting out of the city to de-stress, clear the mind, recharge your energy and practice some uplifting Dru Yoga and a meditation in a stunning natural environment?
Come join me on my late summer Saturday afternoon event on Devils Dyke. The afternoon involves mindful walking on the Downs, partly in silence, so that we can appreciate and take in the scenery, sounds and sights around us, without distraction, with the use of (optional) mantras (Sanskrit words in silent repetition) to help calm and focus the mind.
Along the walk, we will pause in various locations for some flowing Dru Yoga sequences (no yoga mat required) which help to rebalance and recharge each of the subtle energies (Chakras), from the Root Chakra through to the Throat Chakra. To complete the session there will be a Mindfulness Meditation to rebalance the Third Eye and Crown Chakras, savouring the tranquil views overlooking the Weald and the South Downs.
Practicalities: Please wear suitable walking shoes (trainers/Converse/similar will be fine), Yoga leggings (or comfy trousers that you can move in), a jacket, something waterproof, just in case of a shower, and/or sunscreen and hat in case of very hot day! Bring a small rucksack/bag to carry something warm to put over shoulders in the meditation / relaxation as we will be lying on the ground, and a light blanket or towel to sit / lie on for the ground based poses and relaxation. The standing poses will be performed bare foot on the ground, much better to connect to Earth’s magnetic energy:) No yoga mat required. Please also bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated, and or a flask of warm tea (if required), and any snacks that you may like for the end of the session (eg fruit, nuts).

What is the Karmiyoga Shamballa?* A two hour session involving mindful, restorative yoga to ambient music, culminating in a guided deep relaxation. It’s a synthesis of Dru Yoga sequences to uplift the Spirit and encourage positive intention, with restorative Hatha Yoga asanas (mostly floor based), pranayama techniques and guided meditation to relax the mind, and a deeply re-energising 40 minute guided relaxation (Yoga Nidra). The result: a recharge of energy, a deeper connection to Self, a sense of renewal, a spring in the step – and a BIG smile on the face!
Suitable for all levels. * Definition of Shamballa: a mythical kingdom, and place of higher consciousness.
