This all-levels Dru Yoga workshop will work specifically on how to deal with challenging and heightened emotions such as anger and frustration, and burnout from activism or caring for others, with a focus on political and social change.
Yoga for Change workshop at The Tetley, Leeds
Lucyoga’s Yoga for Change workshop explores how to practically use yoga to help you deal with change. This workshop will look at change related to political and social events, and things that are happening in your life that affect you but that are not determined by your own actions.
We will work specifically on how to deal with challenging and heightened emotions such as anger and frustration, and burnout from activism or caring for others.
This workshop focuses on how you can keep yourself healthy and well at times of great change. We will look at how to acknowledge, and then move on from, negative feelings which can hinder our ability to change, and learn how to progress forward in challenging circumstances.
“Excellent – really powerful, friendly and nurturing. What I needed!” – Karen M
“Gentle, relaxing, supportive and thought-provoking.” – Sophie B
“I love the affirmations, which work for me even though I’m very non-spiritual! I also always feel safe and comfortable coming into Lucy’s classes, despite having chronic pain.” – Zoë
What is Dru Yoga?
Dru Yoga is a beautiful flowing form of yoga that will help you to relax, unwind and stretch out your body. It can help revive tired muscles, reduce back pain and combat stress. Dru Yoga gives the mind and body much needed rest and relaxation, to help you find a still point in a busy world.
What to expect
The first part of these workshops will focus on physical movements. We’ll work with yoga postures, breathing techniques and visualisations to help us find our inner strength and energy, and let go of stress and anxiety which can hold us back.
We’ll then take an extended relaxation, helped by the movement and stretching we’ve just done, and supported by bolsters and blankets so you can be as comfortable as possible. All equipment is provided, free of charge, so you don’t need to bring anything other than water and yourself!
The workshop will be completed by a short meditation to help open the mind to new courses of action.
