Classes and Workshops

Sunrise Slow Flow

Join Jenny in our morning Gentle Morning Flow Yoga Class, a beautiful blend of mindful movements, breathwork, and meditation. This class is designed to invigorate your body and expand your awareness with the gentle embrace of the early day.

Jenny will lead you through a sequence of deliberate, flowing postures that harmonize with your breath, enabling you to move with grace and intention. Each movement invites you to explore your body’s potential and deepen your connection with the present moment.

Yoga Nidra

Often referred to as ‘conscious sleep,’ Yoga Nidra is a restorative meditation practice renowned for its profound ability to rejuvenate both body and mind. It serves as an invaluable remedy for sleep deprivation, allowing practitioners to access brainwave patterns associated with the ‘rest and digest’ phase of nourishment.

During Yoga Nidra, attention is delicately directed to the breath and systematically guided through the body, effortlessly inducing a state of non-doing. This practice is commonly undertaken in a reclined position, where meditators may experience various states, including drifting into sleep, a gentle de-focus, or allowing attention to naturally ebb and flow.

Transcending Limiting Beliefs Workshop

This transformative meditation Workshop will guide you on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment by systematically addressing an old limiting belief and embracing a new empowering ones. Through breathwork and visualization, you are encouraged to connect with the boundless expanse of infinite space, liberating yourself from past constraints and awakening to the possibilities of your limitless future. Your beliefs exert a significant influence on your life, and the longer you hold onto them, the deeper their impact. Meditation serves as a potent tool for transcending limiting beliefs by rewiring years of subconscious mental conditioning, allowing you to transcend the constraints of your body and environment while reprogramming your thought patterns. Furthermore, when you transcend the constraints of space and time, you gain access to a harmonious state of consciousness where novel beliefs can materialize and instantaneously become reality. In this elevated state, you can then reintegrate this newfound truth into your current physical being. This practice enables you to differentiate between restrictive, stagnant beliefs and expansive, growth-oriented ones, underscoring the importance of selecting positive beliefs to cultivate a happier and more fulfilling life.

RAIN Meditation Workshop

Jenny will guide you through our RAIN Meditation Workshop, helping you explore the steps of Recognizing, Accepting, Investigating, and Nurturing your emotions and experiences. Learn to skillfully navigate the storms of your mind, fostering a profound sense of self-compassion and inner harmony. Join us on this journey of self-discovery and emotional healing.

Reclaim Balance and Find Grounding Workshop
