What is Yoga for Change?
Lucyoga’s Yoga for Change workshops explore how to practically use yoga to help you make change. Whether that change is within yourself, your immediate environment, or on a much wider scale related to political and social events. We will work specifically with how to deal with challenging and heightened emotions.
 
This workshop focuses on different aspects related to how you can keep yourself healthy and well at times of great change. We will also look at how to let go of negative feelings which can hinder our ability to change, and learn how to progress forward in challenging circumstances.

“Excellent – really powerful, friendly and nurturing. What I needed!” – Karen M

“Gentle, relaxing, supportive and thought provoking.” – Sophie B

“I love the affirmations, which work for me even though I’m very non-spiritual! I also always feel safe and comfortable coming into Lucy’s classes, despite having chronic pain.” – Zoë


What is Dru Yoga?
Dru Yoga is a beautiful flowing form of yoga that will help you to relax, unwind and stretch out your body. It can help revive tired muscles, reduce back pain and combat stress. Dru Yoga gives the mind and body much needed rest and relaxation, to help you find a still point in a busy world.

What to expect
The first part of these workshops will focus on physical movements. We’ll work with yoga postures, breathing techniques and visualisations to help us find our inner strength and energy, and let go of stress and anxiety which can hold us back.

We’ll then take an extended relaxation, helped by the movement and stretching we’ve just done, and supported by bolsters and blankets so you can be as comfortable as possible. All equipment is provided, free of charge, so you don’t need to bring anything other than water and yourself!

The workshop will be completed by a short meditation to help open the mind to new courses of action.

Who can come?
This workshop is suitable for all, whether you are totally new to yoga, have been practicing for years, or anything in between.

The workshop will be suitable for those with health challenges, who are pregnant or post-natal but it is vital that you inform me in advance if you have any current or chronic health issues, are pregnant or less than 6 months post-natal. Email lucy@lucyoga.co.uk to let me know.
