Guest Workshop with Soulcity London

Kirtan with Rādhikā Dāsa

IMG-20190604-WA0069

 

Kirtan – call and response chanting – can seem a bit strange initially, but just like yoga, skydiving and falling in love, it’s one of those things you need to experience to truly understand what it does and how good it can feel. 
Kirtan refers to chanting – one of the main practices of yoga. Classic Indian instruments, such as the harmonium and drum accompany the chant, while simple Sanskrit mantras are repeated in a call-and-response fashion, from the leader to the group, building in energy and tempo.

Rādhikā Das is a core manager for the Kirtan London project and helps to oversee its 6 Hour Kirtans, retreats, workshops and courses, as well as leading soulful sessions himself.

Date: Friday 28th June 19:00 – 20:30

Cost: £10

June Workshop

Yin + Guided Meditation with Sabina

ZS-230419-YOGA-83
Indulge yourself with an afternoon of relaxing Yin yoga, followed by guided chakra meditation. In this workshop we will explore the meaning of chakras and how Yin yoga can be used to guide us into restoring equilibrium in our body.
The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates as wheel or disc. In yoga, meditation and Ayurveda this refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. Yin yoga is a meditative practice of slow, deep poses that are held for longer periods of time. Each pose in the sequence will awaken a particular chakra energy centre, allowing us to explore inner landscapes of our physical body, as well as delve into the deeper levels of our being. We will close the session with a meditation session designed to awaken each chakra.
Date: Saturday 29th June 12.30- 14.30
Cost: £25 (Half Price Monthly Members)
Teachers: Sabina Ahmadov

August Guest Workshop with Soulcity London

ISIS Dance with Alessia Avellino

Soul City London Logo

Find out what ancient bellydance movements were really about and how they relate to the physical, emotional, spiritual body and the yogic chakra system.

Isis Dance is about connecting with our natural rhythm and feeling the movements from within, finding and releasing tension from deep places in the body and celebrating getting in touch with ourselves.

We will be looking at how dance movements relate to the chakras, and what that means for every person.

The aim of this workshop is to learn a movement and make it yours, so that your dance will always be authentic. This is why we dance in a circle rather than in front of a mirror. If you are performance oriented you will find that, having a knowledge and feeling of why you are moving in the way you are, will add great purpose and power to your dance when performing.

We will be dancing in a circle together for some of the time and at other times we will be moving freely around the space to practice and experiment feeling the movements we have learned in our own bodies.

Bring a scarf or coin belt (if you have one) to tie round your hips. I will bring some coin belts for you to borrow on the day. The scarf /coin belt is not compulsory, however, having a a scarf/ tassel or -best of all – a coin belt makes shimmying the hips easier as it brings awareness to that area of the body. The sound of the coin belt is also great for clearing the energy field around the body.

This workshop is open to all levels, ages and genders. You will get a great workout and sweat, so please don’t eat just before or if you must, keep it very light. Just show up and the dance will do the rest!

Date: Friday 2nd August 19:00 – 20:30
