Somatic Community Practice Days
Specifically for yoga teachers with some experience of Charlotte's Somatic and Mindful yoga teaching (either through classes or courses) who welcome the chance to explore such practices in a group setting.
This will be a space to meet, practice and reflect - time with those who feel the deeper need for compassionate exploration and embodied awareness.
Coming together in-person gives us the chance to feel the very real effects of moving from emerging patterns and breath.
See the rough schedule below for ways we will look to practice in the middle space between fully guided and fully self practice.
Honouring both our communal and individual natures can help truly orient our needs.
11-11.30am - arriving circle; tea and check-in
11.30am-1pm - practice lead by Charlotte; things she's playing with currently - some formalised shapes and movements leading into exploration, and a respectful amount of space for restorative time and savasana.
1-1.15pm - reflections of previous practice
1.15-2.30pm - lunch (plenty of choice in Brighton nearby)
2.30-3.15pm - talk by Charlotte; eg the theme of allowing gesture and movement to emerge and guide practice – how self-practice in this way feeds into teaching by some direct and often non-direct ways. [A different theme for each day to feed into the practice to follow...]
3.15-4.30pm - loosely guided personal practice; a communal space for physical practice or meditation in silence - Charlotte will guide timings of starting shapes (lying, all-fours, z-legs etc) for you to explore what you need, with the agency to follow where that goes freely.
4.30-5pm - reflections of previous practice and anything that has come up during the day.
