Relax Release Restore

With Adelene Cheong

To 'rest', to 'relax' and to 'restore' is essential to everyone especially in today's western society and stressful lifestyle. To 'rest' deeply is to experience absolute relaxation, where there is effortless in stillness, quietness and peace.

Restorative Yoga is the practice of relaxation for conscious deep rest.  A practice with the use of props to support the physical body in position of ease and comfort, to facilitate positive relaxation response, for energetic, emotional and mental equanimity​.

This practice-based workshop offers Restorative Yoga to support rest and healing, with time for stillness, reflection and meditation. Adelene is a leading teacher and trainer in Restorative Yoga and Meditation based in UK. Join her for an evening, a full day or the whole workshop.

 

' Restorative Yoga is a Relaxation practice for Conscious Deep Rest.
  Rest is not self-indulgence, Rest is not optional, Rest is self-preservation, Rest is respect for life.'  -- Adelene

 

 

"Relax + Restore + Stillness" : Friday 1 February, 18:30-21:00

 

This practice-based class is fully focussed on Rest and Silence. You will experience the art of Relaxation, shifting from sympathetic to parasympathetic dominance over this evening session. To heal, to grow, to renew, to restore, to reset for harmony and health.

The body and mind already know how to heal and rejuvenate, we only need to offer time, space and love. This is a process of supporting and allowing, minus the intention of doing and acting.

You will be guided through the process of Relaxation, to transition from the moment you arrive on your mat to the moment you leave the room. Great way to move into your weekend.

 


"Tension Release for Body and Mind" : Saturday 2 February, 10:00-12:45 and 14:00-16:45 


Tensed, stuck, painful, restricted, knotted, tight? What is tension? What is the relativity between chronic pain, mental or emotional tension?

In this experiential workshop, we will explore active release practices. This includes a combination of conscious movement and still poses to alter the tension structure and texture of the tissues. The intention is to increase the flow of Prana or Qi (life force), which translate to greater freedom of movement, offering a sense of space and agility from inside out. 
As the mind has a direct experience paired with the physical expression, chronic tension may very likely be a habitual patterning of the mind, or vice versa. More to be discussed in the workshop…

Adelene will introduce and discuss the causes of tension, recognition of symptoms, and finally how to manage and release unhealthy negative tension in our body. We will explore movements and various positions in relation to gravity to promote the undoing, dismantling, and releasing of tension and tightness in the ‘stuck’ or restricted areas, ie. reduced Prana. Only when the body feels free, unburdened and spacious, that the breath and energetic body may fully express its potential, restoring health and vitality in the process.

This workshop offers:
•    theory, discussions and experiential practices
•    improve sensory intelligence
•    somatic embodiment of recognizing and releasing tension
•    enhance flow of Prana
•    the process of conscious movements and still poses

Join Adelene in this transformational workshop to feel and experience sense of spaciousness whilst energised, openness and light, fluid and supple, resilience and organic expression of your being. 

Suitable for all levels practitioners. Teachers and body workers welcome.
