Letting go of fear and opening the heart with Tamara James
June 22 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm£60
I am so excited to welcome one of my most influential teachers from Australia to our little Falmouth studio in June 2019. This really will be a rare chance to learn from a wonderful and deeply knowledgeable teacher. Enjoy a day of asana, pranayama and meditation practices to explore and dissolve fear.
YOUR SADHANA DAY WITH TAM
Our day will commence with an invigorating pranayama to open the heart and energize the soul.
From there we will dive into some stronger inversions and backbends… paced in a way to keep you safe but challenged; you will have the opportunity of seeing where fears hold you back in your practice and with this awareness overcome negative emotion .. you heart will blossom!
The afternoon will involve an asana session to wind down, before a relaxing yoga nidra.
Saturday 10.30-4.30pm with a break for lunch
£60 bookings essential
