Mythical Yoga


Sue and I have decided to offer this first 'Mythical Yoga' workshop for free (donations welcomed). The focus is on the elements--earth, water, fire, air and spirit--through storytelling and yoga. Utilising creative activities and drawing on stories from a variety of traditions, we will open the door for you to explore the meaning of the elements within your own life. Sue continues the experience with gentle, yet deep reflective yoga practices exercising body, mind and spirit.

All levels of yoga experience (or none) are welcome. Please bring a journal, pen and a sense of adventure Mats and blankets provided.

VENUE: The Yoga Room, 5a Forth Street, Edinburgh Scotland EH1 3JX
TIME AND DATES:
Saturday 28 May, 10am-1pm

FACILITATORS: Yoga/holistic therapist Sue Powell and storyteller Michael Williams.

Other dates to be offered in the autumn.

COST: FREE (donations welcomed to help cover our costs).

CONTACT: To register or for more info, contact Michael at iamthestoryteller[at]gmail[dot]com.
