Yoga for Emotional and Physical Strength with Gillian Shippey

Sun 10th November
11.00am - 4.00pm
Teacher(s): Gillian Shippey
Ability Level: Mixed Abilities
Yoga workshop Leeds Happi Healing

This workshop will include very effective practices to develop core strength, whilst encouraging movement in the body and joints safely. Practices to address common postural issues will be explored, aligning the structural body and thereby releasing energy.

Whilst this workshop will be challenging, it is also accessible. Over the years I have found certain practices to be very effective in helping to awaken the body into alignment, strengthen powerfully, bringing greater ease of movement / flexibility.

I will also be delivering a new Nidra called ‘Unbreakable’ … connecting to the part of us that cannot be wounded, burdened or traumatised …. the part of us that is by nature curious, connected, compassionate and calm … the part of us which is the agent for psychological healing. So our focus will not just be physical strength … it will also be soul strength.

This workshop is loaded with structural integrity and you will leave this workshop feeling energised, vibrant, strong, alive and light!
