Seasonal Yoga Flow Class 

Classes are suitable for all levels. The intention, pace and flow of classes changes with each Season, supporting our bodies and minds in the best way possible aswell as keeping things interesting. Yoga classes are vinyasa flow and always allow for a breath and meditation practice to close. Breath and mediation classes are an opportunity to find a moment of calm in your day and learn to use your breath to support your body and mind. In all classes you’ll learn something you can take off the mat into the rest of your day or week to support yourself.

6-7pm
 
EnChanting (singing class)
 
with Giulia Drummond
 
 
 Giulia Drummond a singer-songwriter from Brazil based in Edinburgh. Her project is called Magical Music, and she also teaches singing in a very magical approach.
Giulia‘s teaching draws on music from different roots – not only from Brazil and other South American countries, but also Celtic, Indian, Hebrew, Romani, Sefardi, amongst others. She also integrates sounds from nature, the animals, the wind, water, in a way to show that sound carries healing and even magical properties, a knowledge that has been explored by many ancient cultures.
Giulia has a degree in Psychology and has worked in mental health for nine years, so she approaches music and singing not only as a performative activity, but also therapeutic.
The idea is to find your own voice, surrendering to the flow of the body and notice how the body wants to sing. With breathing and vocal exercises you will develop a heightened awareness of your voice and how the whole body can assist in your singing.
Giulia will also introduce you to a repertoire of chants and songs. All these practices are an invitation to discover the many facets of your voice and being.
It’s a rich patchwork, in which each chant evokes the strength of the roots we all have in common, as humanity and as nature.

with Monika from Pink Hat

We are all Cosmic Sparks, children of the Cosmos. The whole Universe is infinite, conscious Energy and this is our source, our home.

How do you imagine your cosmic home? How could you paint it? As a portal? A shining perfect star? Maybe you would express the vision of the infinite Universe as a symbol?

During painting, I will guide you if you would like to, and will give you professional advice on how to paint and draw. The artwork will be yours to keep and your memory from the workshop.

5th December 2-4pm

Monthly Shamanic Circle with Giada from Invisible Caims 

The mood of our Monthly Shamanic Circles at the Art and Spirituality Centre in Gorgie, Edinburgh is  powerful, dynamic, charming, funny, artistic and relaxing. 

The theme of December will be the key to everything: learning to cultivate FAITH. Not in something, not in someone.

We will learn practical shamanic rituals that can help us tremendously in adopting a new method of thinking. You will be able to untie the knots of unconscious self-boycott and you will not be able to do anymore those things in which you do not truly believe. 

We need a new method of thinking capable of projecting us into a future in which we can rediscover man’s ancient, primitive capacity for faith. A natural, wild, free faith, is a continuous drive to go beyond oneself and what the mind claims to know, it is a faculty capable of leading to full self-realisation. In a society where easy answers are everywhere, just type in the question, it is difficult to remain face to face with mystery and imagination, which are the true gyms of faith, self-confidence and inner strength.

Those who, in these conditions, manage to cultivate the power of faith have great possibilities and can make an effective contribution to the world.

Expect Japanese Rituals from the Yamabushi Shamans oBe ready to take a shamanic journey accompanied by Giada’s drumming and be in touch with your spirits allies to ask questions for which you need guidance. 

Nature Within Me

with Bethan Elsdale and Stephanie Knight

 

A Midwinter Gathering to attune to the inherent wisdom within each of us, and honour the energy of the Feminine present at this time of year. The embrace of Winter and the prevailing darkness brings with it the opportunity for stilling and going within, creative gestation and self nourishment as we await the return of the Light.

If we Winter well, we can Summer anywhere.

It will combine Yoga with Meditation, Inner Enquiry and Ritual to support this.

You may wish to gift this to yourself or a special friend. Cost £40

[Please note: places are limited to 10 people]

Find your Ikigai, your passion and purpose in life

with Giada from Invisible Caims

Some people are lucky to find a job that corresponds to their true  passion, to their soul mission. But there are a lot  of people that do not have such a privilege, as they need to take jobs they do not resonate with their own hearts, simply to support their living costs. And this has a big impact on their mental health and well-being conditions. Some other people cannot instead find the  courage for such a big change. 

If you are one of them, the  Japanese people from the island of Okinawa have a word for you:  Ikigai. It’s your “reason for being”, the  mission of your soul that you can only understand with your Heart, not with your  Mind.

To find your Ikigai, you need energy, skills and gifts from your ancestors.

During this workshop together, we will start with a Japanese shamanic ritual to set this powerful intention. You will then visualize your fears and blocks and write on some paper that will go  inside your bowl. With full awareness, you  will firmly and safely break your pottery and with the help of  others, you will purify the space around you and inside yourself with an incense. 

It will be now time to easily repair your pottery with gold through a  modern reinterpretation of the art of kintsugi, that teaches that broken objects are not something to hide but to display with pride. This is the essence of resilience: the present situation that blocks you from joining your passions should be taken  in their positive aspect of imperfection, according to the Wabi Sabi philosophy. 

While repairing your unique piece in a very easy way, I will share with you more of what I’ve learnt through my Shamanic teacher about the Japanese Aesthetics principles of the Wabi Sabi and the Ikigai. 

To reach your ikigai, you need skills, talents and energy that are already inside yourself, just waiting to be unveiled. 

This will be a beatiful taster of a journey that requires time and that I normally start, as a qualified Ikigai Coach, with those people that are willing to dig inside their hearts to discover what is their true song this life.

What to take with you:

*a bowl of medium size, not too thin, not too thick

*your own mat or we have them here too

The rest of the material will be provided

Women’s Moon Circle
with Fay from Yoga with Fay and Cori from KOA
 
This is an incredibly busy and demanding time of year.  With the focus on home and family this can create its own demands and joy, but we are also aware this isn’t the case for everyone, and the absence of loved ones can be felt more intensely.  
 
So it feels a perfect moment to nurture the heart and rest in this heart and hearth time together.  19th December is a Full Moon which will have quite a different energy to we are feeling just now.  It is also the beginning of Venus retrograde, and is of course only a few days before the Winter Solstice and Yuletide.  A perfect time to tend to the inner fire.
 
For thousands of years women sat together in circles, to share, to listen, and to talk. To hear one another and to be heard.  They disappeared from view for a while but have gradually made their way back.  
 
These circles are a unique way of finding connection; with yourself and with others.  Through this space of listening and sharing we empower one another.  Amazing things happen when we come together!  
 
Fay has been holding circles for over two years, all safe and welcoming spaces.  Now Cori will be joining her in holding this beautiful space with you.  
 
In our experience, sitting in circle has become part of our health and wellness practice.  
 
You can expect sharing, guided relaxation or yoga nidra and then open the space for sharing if you feel called in a safe and supportive space.
 
These circles open to all self identifying women.
 
About Cori
Cori is an experienced wellbeing professional with a background in reiki, mindfulness, sound, yoga and coaching. Her offerings are deeply routed in the importance of listening to your heart and finding balance.  Cori has been offering mindful yoga and walks to women in Edinburgh since March 2019 and loves working in the community.  Cori is passionate about empowering all beings to celebrate the uniqueness of who they are.   With Cori you are in supportive and safe hands.
 
About Fay 
Fay is an experienced yoga teacher, massage therapist and reiki practitioner.  She has a background in health and an interest in women’s health for longevity, wellness and vitality, after finding the benefits of a unique practice in her own life. In early 2020 she completed additional training in Yoga Therapy for Women’s Health and Wellness which lead her to the path today of training to become a Yoga Therapist.  She holds open, accessible and welcoming spaces with a focus upon enjoying yourself as much as anything else.
 
Together, Fay and Cori have an incredibly strong yet soft energy. 
 
If you’ve not attended a circle before and feel a little nervous and curious that is normal, please DM Fay with any questions you may have.
