Yoga for Emotional and Physical Strength with Gillian Shippey

Sun 3rd January
11.00am - 4.00pm
Teacher(s): Gillian Shippey
Ability Level: Mixed Abilities
Yoga workshop Leeds Happi Healing

In this workshop we focus on strengthening the physical body during the morning, and on strengthening emotionally, psychologically and soulfully during the afternoon.

As a qualified Yoga Therapist with 20 years experience, Gillian combines classical and modern yoga postures and movements, structural anatomy awareness, Yoga Nidra, storytelling, movement, breath work, Polyvagal Theory, Attachment Theory and meditations to bring strength to the body, mind, heart and soul.

Through the art of storytelling, Nidra and meditation we will be connecting to the part of us that cannot be wounded, burdened or traumatised, the part of us which is the agent for psychological healing. Whilst at the same time acknowledging, honouring and listening to the parts of us that are wounded. So our focus will not just be physical strength … it will also be soulular strength.

The intention for this workshop is for you to leave feeling empowered, strong and with a sense of belonging.

Whilst this workshop will be physically challenging in places, it is also accessible. Everyone is welcome. Please contact Gillian if you wish to talk.
