September Slow Down
Monday 26th ~ Friday 30th September
Online 9-9:30pm GMT
🍁 September can be an exciting time of year.
The start of autumn, the new school year, a fresh start.
It can also be pretty hectic ~ a time of increasingly more tasks to juggle after all of the summer fun and the lead up to winter and the holiday season.
🍁 Energetically, autumn is a time for discerning what you’d like to prioritize in your life - “separating the wheat from the chaff” after the harvest of the year...
this can be a tall task without any time to slow down and take stock.
🍁 If you like the idea of slowing down but find the reality a lot more tricky to navigate (as most of us do), then September Slow Down is for you.
September Slow Down is a chance to:
🍁 Dedicate some time to yourself everyday beyond the roles of mother, daughter, co-worker, caregiver etc.
🍁 Self soothe and regulate your emotions.
🍁 Relieve tension and aches and pains from your physical body.
🍁 Create space for mental clarity & decision making.
🍁 Gain perspective on your life currently.
🍁 Learn some new tools for how to slow down & rest more frequently.
🍁 Improve your sleep.
🍁 Increase your flexibility & keep joints healthy.

FAQ ~ Your questions answered
🌼 What kind of yoga will we be practicing?
Throughout the sessions we'll practice a very slow, passive, gentle style of yoga known as Yin. Most poses are seated or lying, and are a passive style of deep stretching that is amazing for flexibility & slowing down.
🌼 What kind of meditation will be included?
As well as simple seated focusing on the breath and body, we'll explore a style of yoga called Yoga Nidra. This a guided style of meditation focusing on relaxing not only the physical but the mental body, leaving you feeling rested and refreshed.
🌼 Do I need yoga or meditation experience?
No. The pace will be slow and steady and hopefully very accessible wherever you are on your yoga journey - from complete beginner to long time practitioner.
🌼 Is yoga suitable for me with ___ injury or condition?
Please consult your doctor/health care practitioner before trying yoga for the first time if you have any concerns. This may not be suitable for you if: you've recently had an operation, have recently given birth or are navigating certain health conditions. It is sadly not suitable if you are pregnant.
After consulting the above please feel free to email Marie with any requests for specific modifications.
🌼 Do I have to make the live?
Each session will be hosted live, 9-9:30pm GMT via Zoom. An email with a link to re-watch the recording will be sent out afterwards and will be live until the next day's session. This means you can catch up or re-watch at your own convenience.
🌼 Do I need to have my camera on for the session?
While I prefer to see your lovely faces where possible, it's up to you whether you have your camera on. That said - if you've emailed asking for specific modifications in regards to your health concerns, being able to see you is an important part of being able to guide you.
🌼 Can I join part way through?
Yes, you can join at any point of the event. Your welcome registration email will contain the link to join that evening's live session - if you have missed this you will need to wait until the next day to be added to the list.
Anything else not included here? Feel free to drop Marie an email.
