Movement Playground : Cultivating Mindful Play in Practice
Open to all.
£35 (£30 early bird until 24th August)
The practice of yoga does not have to end up becoming yet another piece of labour.
Play is an ideal state of mind for creativity and learning because the mind is focused on the means instead of the outcome. So, what can play mean in the context of yoga practice?
Utilising partner work and props, we will learn to invoke play in both our own practice and in others based on David’s highly researched framework of play. As a community of players, we will have the opportunity to devise our own games, exploring how varying degrees of playfulness can be incorporated within the practice of yoga.
What can I expect?
Expect lots of games rooted in free movement, both on your own, in partners and bigger groups. Lots of props and partner work to be anticipated across the session, all with a hands-on experience towards play. There will also be an opportunity to devise your own game (with plenty of guidance).
What will I gain from this workshop?
A reinvigorated sense of curiosity with a clear understanding of how play can be incorporated within your yoga practice on and off the mat. Hopefully you will also leave with confidence that your yoga practice is what you need it to be, one that is less serious and more curious.
Open to anyone and everyone looking for a good time including children over 10, also particularly relevant for self-practitioners and teachers interested in facilitating play and free movement in practice.
