Grace Notes, Sunday 5th February 2017, 10-1pm, £18/23*

In music grace notes are fleeting, optional, and easily missed, but if you can play them they add a special depth and texture to the music. A yoga practice is full of grace notes, but you have to be able to embody the breath in the moment, in order to observe them. This then, will be a gentle, still & subtle practice that makes a space for joy, balance and light to play.

This workshop, taught in an engaging and interactive way will quickly have you planning short practices for yourself. There will be plenty of yoga practice as well as practice planning. This morning will teach you the basic rules that guide viniyoga practice, giving you the means to practice safely, confidently and creatively.
