Winter: Finding space in busy times (for busy people)

Winter is an introspective, grounding time, where nature withdraws energy back into itself to replenish, restore and prepare for the next cycle.

Despite the “slower” nature of these introverted months, often this time of year can be one of the busiest and most stressful for so many of us.

Energy can feel sluggish or dull and it can be difficult to stay motivated. We can get a little distant from ourselves as we meet the needs of others.

I get it, this time of year gets busy.
Lots of to-dos, demands and plans.
Hopefully many of them are exciting and delightful!

But sometimes, there´s a feeling that we´re not inbalance. Continuously pouring from our cup, without refilling and refuelling with some “me time”.

The symptoms?

Stress.
Overwhelm.
Exhaustion.
Lack of motivation.
Low immunity.
Stagnancy.

You know the drill.

Often at the root is the urge we have to meet the demands from the season. From ourselves and from others.

I feel you.

And there´s a lot of things i´ve learned on my personal and teaching journey that can help, so these workshops are an offering designed to support you through the busy season. So you can be more centred + present + charged - especially when you feel you are too busy for all of that

So, here´s what´s on offer:

  • Deepen you yoga and meditation practice with mindful movement, stillness and breathwork practices
     
  • Learn tools and techniques to help you manage stress in the busy season.
     
  • Charge up your energy levels to support you through the shorter days and longer nights
     
  • Practice slowing down to a sustainable pace so you can feel more balanced and connected
     
  • Cultivate compassion and awareness, going inward to tune into what you need so your practice (on and off the mat) is sustainable.
     
  • Give yourself a gift this season and treat yourself to some time and space to fill up your cup so you can feel more nourished, uplifted and balanced this winter season.

WORKSHOP 1:
RADIANT RECHARGE

Bergen Winter Workshops Radiant Recharge

Charge up find your glow this winter! 
This workshop is designed to cultivating radiant energy that is balanced and sustainable. Boost your energy and circulation and warm up from the inside out.

Let´s reignite our charge and give ourselves a big ole warm hug. That´s kind of what this practice is like. An actual hug. Especially if we´re feeling a little tender or disconnected.

Expect some immediate state-shifting using some fun and refreshing breathwork and movement studies focussed on upper body and particularly shoulders (desk hunchers unite!) hips and spine, plus lots of hugs of course (yes!). Hope it warms you up and inspires gratitude for yourself.

Focus is on interplaying effort and ease, tuning in to what you need, whilst experimenting with options to shift stagnant energy. An energising, dynamic yet balanced flow class exploring our connection to centre and releasing unecessary tension in the process.

A full and rounded rejuvinating practice with enough heat and softness. Potential spicy meatballs but babes, you choose your seasoning, ok? ok!

Recharge and create more space, fluidity, expansiveness and gratitude, all whilst being radiantly you.

WORKSHOP 2: 
REST + RESTORE

Bergen Winter Workshops

Intended to be a “balm for your bits”, this workshop will explore somatic and restorative practices to encourage grounding, relieve stress, anxiety, unravel the chest, hips and spine.

This will be a deeply relaxing and meditative workshop designed to help you unravel tension and find ease.  

Deeply gentle, relaxing and restorative, this class will take the rhythm of our (Take care of you) Yoga + Self Care Workshops.

A safe, intimate, nourishing and rejuvenating environment for your body and mind. Journey through a grounded, quiet, calm and restorative self care practice.

Feast on tools and techniques that encourage you to slow down and delve a little deeper into yourself.

Time out to get to know yourself again, thoughts, body, guts, home. Reacquaint, explore how to come back to yourself and discover ways to maintain self care when we return to the outside world.

A sumptuous and sensual exploration discovering the best methods to nurture and support yourself. Addressing how to integrate self care into daily life. More space, stress less, refuel and replenish.

This tends to be a deeper and more intuitive self study, combining movement and stillness. I´ll be guiding the session but exploration and deep listening (to yourself) is encouraged.

What to expect:

  • Slow, gentle, tender movement, mostly on the floor:::
  • Detail::::
  • Stillness:::::
  • Fluidity::::
  • Self massage::::
  • Breathwork::::
  • Discovery::::
