Finding space with Hilary Norman and Eleanor Dawson
An online Yoga weekend with Hilary Norman and Eleanor Dawson
This weekend retreat is intended for yoga teachers, or more experienced practitioners.
It is an opportunity for reflection and practice, led by the needs of the group and guided by us.
Our intention is to create a space for mutual support and self-reflection, and there will be some periods of silence during the weekend.
It is a common experience among Yoga practitioners to find a depth of equanimity on a retreat that it is difficult to sustain in everyday life.
We had hoped to teach at Woodbrooke this year and to concentrate on the quiet, contemplative aspects of Yoga and practice.
We now have to teach online, however, so while it can’t be the same as being on retreat, we would still like to concentrate on those aspects.
What might come relatively easily on a retreat, when we’re away from home, can become a challenge at home.
So, since so many of us are having to spend more time at home (for obvious reasons), we would like to explore more deeply what is possible.
Can we make more effort to find spaces and to prolong a sense of equanimity at home? Do we explore all the possibilities that are open to us,
or do we fall into old habits which inhibit that exploration?
