Braver Than You Think
Time & Location
About the event
This workshop is based on a retreat that I ran in January. It is all about helping you to rediscover your inner strength, that I know is already residing within you. This theme initially came about with my daily sea dipping. On September 1st 2019 I decided to commit to getting in the sea every day, as I had experienced the benefits of my cold water swims and didn't want to lose that as the weather got cooler. I had always been scared of the sea, and it would always take me the whole of summer to overcome my fears of jellies, waves and of course, sharks (not even joking)...and by then I'd usually decide that it was too cold to continue and the cycle would begin again the following summer. However, with my commitment to getting in every day I learned to face my fears, and received countless (and still do to this day) comments from onlookers, telling me "you're brave" - particularly after dipping on those bleak and frosty winter days!
Little did they know, the cold was the last thing putting me off entering the water each day! I have never thought of myself as brave, and probably would have declared the opposite; but I have come to recognise and understand the techniques that I had naturally adopted to help me overcome my fears, and now I'd like to help you to utilise them too.
We will use journalling, movement, breathing techniques an guided meditation to overcome any fears or blockages that have been holding you back, to enable you to embrace the challenges that arise, with practical tools to face them with.
Everybody is welcome to this online workshop - beginners and advanced practitioners alike. The movement parts of the workshop will allow for various abilities with lots of options throughout the session, encouraging you to make the practice your own by doing what feels good for you.
You will need a pen and paper / journal, it might also be nice to have a blanket, cushions / pillows and a yoga block / sturdy book (or something similar).
