Spring is a time of growth and rebirth. We will use this opportunity of the natural change of season to support us in shredding unwanted layers and making a conscious effort in moving forward. The concept of this challenge is to open and focus on certain topics that when developed could help us with our conscious evolution.

During our 3 weeks together we will access our bodies through the introspective practice of Yin Yoga, using it as a gateway into the subconscious mind. We will explore our abilities to connect more deeply to ourselves and others through experiential exercises and learning simple practices to integrate into daily life. During this time of year the environment is dancing with powerful fresh prana (life force energy) and so we will give attention to breathing techniques to refresh and rejuvenate our systems after a long cold winter. It’s time to feel, heal and share.

Week 1 Topics:
– Intention
– Gratitude
– Listening within
– What is prana

Week 2 Topics:
– Trust
– Power of Heart
– Forgiveness

Week 3 Topics:
– Listening to others
– Support and Community
– Silence

You do not need to have Yin Yoga experience to join the challenge, as all the main points will be covered during the sessions. But you do have to be interested in a slow, reflective, mindful way of practice and to have an open and curious attitude.

Victoria Simpson is originally from England. Each year she returns to India for spiritual encouragement. Living under the guidance of her teacher in the foothills of the Himalayas, she has participated and assisted intensive yoga courses and developed the tools to encourage personal growth. An unquenchable thirst to explore and understand her true Self deeply awakened during her mid-twenties, encouraging her to expand her practice and knowledge of Yoga. She thrives on experiences of Eastern culture and philosophies, practises body work therapies and takes part in intensive silent retreats. Healing in her life came through community and safe spaces. In these open and supported spaces there were many opportunities to work through self-limiting beliefs and doubts and this inspires her to share her practice. She completed her 500-hours in Akhanda Hatha Yoga and a further 100-hours in Yin Yoga; each style providing her with valuable techniques, lessons and experiences. Victoria feels incredibly blessed to have learnt and to be supported by great and compassionate teachers and healers through all of her trainings.
