The Wild Woman/Man – The Fairy Tale of the Red Shoes part 1 – Feb 16, 10 am - 1 pm
The intention of this workshop is to connect to the untamed parts of yourself. It’s about being uncompromisingly wild and expressing who you are through your practice rather than forcing yourself to be a certain way thus curtailing your true nature. The workshop creates space so that anything that needs to emerge can come to the surface and can be made conscious. The workshop uses the fairy tale of the red shoes and a Forrest Yoga hip and inversion sequence to deepen the connections to the parts of yourself that are authentic, untamed and utterly vibrant.
Vitality & Vibrancy – The Fairy Tale of the Red Shoes part 2 – Feb 16, 3 pm - 5:30 pm
The afternoon workshop explores how much we are embodied, where we are carrying our defences and where there is more possibility for aliveness. The afternoon uses process work, body psychotherapeutic principles and partner work to explore our patterns of holding.
The Deception of Short Cuts – The Fairy Tale of the Red Shoes part 3 – Feb 17, 10 am - 1 pm
Sometimes we have the feeling that life should be easier and that our patterns should be dealt with by now. We can be seduced by seemingly quicker and less painful “solutions” to our problems. However, those “quick fixes” and short cuts cannot replace the organic process through we which we must move in order to feel more alive and embodied. As much as we’d like to sanitise life, it’s messy, it’s often beyond our control and it moves in mysterious ways that we rarely can predict – as much as we’d love that. This workshop holds space for what we call in Forrest Yoga the “organic rate of release”, which means that the body, the psyche and life in general unfold in their own time and in their own way. The process cannot be forced. A Forrest Yoga Backbend sequence, as well as the fairy tale of the red shoes are used to help you explore your own process.
