Root & Rest
Weekly Winter Online Yoga & Meditation
17 - 18.30 CEST
16 - 17.30 GMT
11 - 12.30 EDT
Join Naseem for a weekly online community class to move, breathe and rest together during these darker winter days.
We will gather during the witching hour at dusk to harness the magic, mystery and stillness available to us during the days leading up to the end of the year. A chance for body, mind, heart and spirit to unite with natures intention for us at this time of the year through slow, restful and intentional breath-filled movement.
The practice focuses on breathing our way back into an embodied state of being, incorporating slow and gentle hatha, yin and restorative poses, as well as breathwork, and guided relaxation/meditation. Offering plenty of space to sink into deep, nourishing and blissful rest. An ongoing invitation to return back home, reconnect with the endless pool of wisdom, strength, and creativity, and as our listening and relaxation deepen so does our connection to the world and wisdom within.
Depending on what each individual may need, Naseem brings her extensive experience of Hatha flow, restorative, yin, meditation, Yoga Nidra, pranayama, and deep relaxation together and crafts the perfect practice to soothe the mind, melt into the body and restore balance, harmony, and restfulness.
The practice can be profoundly healing in opening up pathways for the mind, body, and soul to experience deep rest and relaxation; soothing an over-exerted nervous system, opening a tender heart and gifting the body and mind a chance to drop and turn deeply inwards.
In these times of great uncertainty and change, it is natural that more support and connection is needed to root and relax within the upheaval. Welcome to join us in this compassionate container and invite friends and family too.
All are welcome! Men, women, beginners and experienced practitioners.

What you will need
Good internet connection
Fully charged laptop/iPad (or phone if neither of these is possible) which has a microphone, camera and speaker to fully benefit from the experience.
Good speaker with volume options, to improve/adjust the sound experience when being gently guided or when music is played.
As many cosy items as you can find! Here are some suggestions but welcome to get creative:
Blankets (ideally x3)
Bolsters to allow for a more restorative practice. And if you don't have any, a couple of rolled-up bed pillows will do with a scarf tied around them to hold them in place.
Blocks (or you can use hardback books).
Hot water bottle for extra cosiness
Candles, incense, oils to create a sacred space and support your practice
Sessions will take place on Zoom, which is a wonderful, simple and free downloadable software. To download simply click on the link provided in the booking confirmation email. Please make sure to download Zoom well in advance of our meeting and test your mic and sound to avoid any delay or technical issues.
Everyone's microphone will be muted on arrival into the space, to allow each of us time to arrive in silence and sink into ourselves/the space. You are welcome to write to me or the group via the chatbox. I will be available a few minutes prior to support with any technical issues. And from 16.30 pm (CET) I will need to direct my focus with those already settled in the space.
