// HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015! //

Florence Lefebvre

Very best wishes for this New Year, everyone!

It is always a great period to set an intention to act as a guideline for the rest of the year. We are often fired up and tempted to go in all directions at first though, so endeavour to keep it simple: a healthier / calmer/ more forgiving / more understanding version of who we are are all great intentions and actually encompass a lot under one key word. You will find various avenues that support your intention and with a nice dose of willpower, you will be the witness of your own transformation!

Namaste.

Props Workshop : Tribute to Mr Iyengar

Florence Lefebvre

// SUNDAY 30TH NOVEMBER 2014, 13.15 - 15.45

Christmas is going to come our way pretty fast and before everyone gets busy getting in the festive spirit, I would like to invite you to join me for one last 2014 workshop!

As some of you might know, Mr B.K.S. Iyengar passed away last August at the ripe age of 96, having dedicated his life to yoga and improved its accessibility to a wide range of practitioners worldwide through the use of props. He left an incredible legacy and touched many people' lives.

This Props Workshop comes as a modest tribute to a great man. Please be aware that it is not an Iyengar workshop. We will work on deepening or revisiting familiar poses using walls, bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps, chairs and even Pilates balls! You will be able to see how props can "awaken the intelligence of the body" - in the words of the man himself - and give you a better sense of what poses are supposed to feel like.

Where: Embody Wellness Studio

St George Wharf, Vauxhall, SW8 2LE

Tel: 020 7099 0048

Cost: £30. Click here to book your space or call the studio if you prefer.

And as always don't hesitate to get hold of me at floyoga.mail@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Bring it back! Workshop

Florence Lefebvre

// SATURDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER 2014, 15.00 - 17.30

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer either abroad or here in London.

Holidays are a wonderful thing - discovering new places, relaxing, enjoying friends and family - but they can also be a time when we let slip many of our healthier habits: our practice can become irregular or non-existent, BBQs and drinks can throw our digestive track off balance, and we generally make the most of the longer days which often leads to less sleep than usual.

In this workshop designed to help us transition from holiday mode back onto our mats, the focus will be less about advanced poses and more about "re-oiling' our joints and wake our muscles up through stretching and twisting to help unravel the power of our spine, and a more creative flow allowing us to enjoy the beauty of movement.

Where: Embody Wellness Studio

St George Wharf, Vauxhall, SW8 2LE

Tel: 020 7099 0048

Cost: £30

Bookings are taken directly by the studio

Please get hold of me at floyoga.mail@gmail.com if you have any questions.

See you soon!

Hands and Forearm Balancing Workshop

Florence Lefebvre

// SATURDAY 17TH MAY 2014, 15.00 - 17.30

In this workshop, I would like to deepen with you a category of poses which at first glance, can either be awe-inspiring or terrifying depending on where you are at in your practice! I can still remember the first time I saw my teacher gracefully lifting herself into Crow; I experienced these feelings all at once.

To explore these poses, a sense of curiosity and play are essential, and of course, no wrist injuries! It is also important to keep in mind that in the same way that balancing on one foot can prove difficult (on some days, my Tree Pose has to be renamed the Shaaaaa-ky Treeeee), hands and forearm balances require patience, determination and is a process of trials and errors.

We will prepare for these more challenging poses through vinyasa flow sequences and will experiment with variations of Bakasana (or Crow), Astavakrasana (Eight-Angle Pose), Koundinyasana I and II, Eka Pada Gavalasana (Flying Pigeon) and a few more… Surprise!

This workshop is open to intermediate and advanced practitioners and will be limited to 16 people.

Bookings are taken directly taken by Embody Wellness.

Cost: £30

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Upside Down Workshop

Florence Lefebvre

// SATURDAY 15TH MARCH 2014, 15.00-17.30.

In about a month's time, spring will be with us, meaning more daylight, hopefully more sunshine (hum…) and also more energy! It is a season marked with a sense of renewal and it is in this spirit that I would like to share with you this Upside Down workshop.

Inversions are a challenging category of poses and can be difficult to practice safely in a packed class but their benefits on the body and the mind make them worthy of our time. 

Plus I like to think that they are fun too since they take us completely out of our comfort zone, test our concentration, our patience (oh yes…) as well as our capacity for adaption and overcoming our fears. You need to practice again and again, fall again and again until, ah-ah, you find yourself standing on your head, hands, forearms or a combination of these!

This workshop is open to all levels except complete beginners and will be limited to 14 people. Bookings are taken directly taken by Embody Wellness.

When: Saturday 15th March, 15.00-17.30.

Where: Embody Wellness Studio

St George Wharf, Vauxhall, SW8 2LE

Tel: 020 7099 0048

ww.embodywellness.co.uk

Cost: £30

Mats and props are all available at the centre, so just bring yourselves and a sense of play.

If you have any questions, please contact me at floyoga.mail@gmail.com

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Cleansing & Rejuvenating Workshop

Florence Lefebvre

// SATURDAY 18TH JANUARY 2014, 15.00-17.30

2013 is coming to an end in style, as every year does, with its share of celebrations and partying!

This Cleansing and Rejuvenating workshop will welcome you into 2014 and help you reboot after the festive season. Although the body has its natural ways of removing toxins, yoga assists this process. 

The practice will mostly be dynamic, but we will also make time for rasayana or rejuvenation with restorative poses. Bolsters, blocks and blankets will all come in handy! 

Leading to the workshop, feel free to start your "cleanse" by keeping hydrated, taking it easy on (or cutting out…)  sugar, caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, etc, and by focussing on a diet rich in fresh vegetables!

All levels are welcome apart from complete beginners.

To book your space, please contact Embody Wellness directly or book online at www.embodywellness.co.uk.

Places are limited to 15.

When: Saturday 18th January, 15.00-17.30.

Where: Embody Wellness Studio

St George Wharf, Vauxhall, SW8 2LE

Tel: 020 7099 0048

Cost: £30

Please reply to this mail if you have any questions.
