Creatively Conscious - Goal Setting & Journal Making Workshop.

Join Visual Artist Yvette Hawkins and Creative Self-Development Mentor Claire Newton for an afternoon workshop to ignite and add purpose to your Spring Time season.


Using traditional book making techniques, Yvette will guide you through how to make a series of seasonal journals with beautiful paper based material.    Learn a book binding technique you can use again and again to make beautiful notebooks for gifts for you or your loved ones. 


Claire will then lead a workshop and ceremony on how to frame and implement your goals and aspirations for the Spring season ahead focussed specifically on creativity, productivity and wellbeing.



In your new white space you’ve created you can put pen to paper and sketch out the story of your conscious goals for Spring 2019 and beyond.  

Whether it’s starting a new hobby, picking up an old one, self-care activities, space to journal each day, carving out time for a regular meditation practise, daily rituals – you can decide what your journal will become and bring it to life as the flowers start to bloom for Spring.   

 

£45; includes tea and cookies, all materials to make journals and a gift box and a set of self-development worksheets.

A Weekend of Workshops with Erica Mather; Backbending & Body-Positivity.

We are so excited to invite Erica Mather back to Newcastle for a weekend of signature workshops.




Join us for the whole weekend or book individual workshops;

Schedule

Saturday, 10am until 5pm

How to Become a Person of Integrity: The Ethics of Yoga Embodied.

At it’s best, yoga asana helps us learn about the underlying ethical principles of yoga so that we can realize them not in an intellectual fashion, but in an embodied way. In this weekend workshop we will go over the eight limbs of yoga, and begin to explore the yamas and the niyamas, and feeling for their presence in our asana work. We will look for the ways that these underlying principles show up in Forrest Yoga, often not by their original names. This workshop will help you identify ethical themes in your yoga practice, and to begin to observe their workings in your life off the mat.

Sunday, 10am until 1pm
The Head and the Heart

The head and the heart contain their own distinct virtues and treacheries. In this back-bending class we will ex- plore the energies of the tow and the physical relationship between them and the channel connecting them: the neck. You will leave with a clearer path from the head to the heart—and the heart to the head—so they can better partner for your highest good. Sunday


Sunday. 2pm until 5pm

Adore Your Body. Discover Session.

This session revolves around the theme of Erica’s upcoming book, and is a rich discussion, in which we will identify what is the obstacle to Adoring the Body, how you want to feel in your own skin, and conclude with at least one actionable step you can take forward towards that goal.


Booking opens Jan 19

New Year Yoga Mala, Deha Shuddhi & Fire Ceremony
Dec
30
12:00 PM12:00

New Year Yoga Mala, Deha Shuddhi & Fire Ceremony

Yoga Mala (the practice of 108 sun salutations) is traditionally undertaken at times of progression, and of change.

This New Year event has become a very special day in the calendar for us at YT, and we are looking forward to its continuing evolution and sharing this powerful experience with you again. 

Each salutation represents one of the 108 stages on the journey of the evolution of the human soul, and as such represent both the journey we have already taken, and the new adventure waiting for us in the new year.

The day will begin with a guided meditation process, celebrating the past year, but also working with the elements we are ready to leave behind, and the new energies we all looking to manifest in the coming year before moving into the Mala itself, and the physical experience of redesigning our energy.  To close the practice we will have an indoor fire Ceremony, to commit our intentions and our wishes to the universe.

PAYG £30

Monthly Members £24
