OVERVIEW OF COURSE / WORKSHOPS

There will be a weekly 3 hour Hatha Yoga and Meditation workshop every SUNDAY from 14 April-1 June 2019 (excl 21 April & the last workshop is Sat 1 June followed by a Brunch Social) from 12.30pm-3.30pm:
* A special focus on one Chakra each week;

* For more information visit the Facebook Page & Group: Inner Peace Wellness or email any queries to email@example.com
During each workshop, there will also be some Yoga Asanas (poses) for other Chakras, in order to have a balanced workshop. Sound is also powerful at moving stuck energy so each session will also include a Meditation to music and often Pranayama (yogic breathing) with Sound. This is a unique opportunity to explore the more esoteric aspects of yoga, not often taught in the West. If you feel called to join, it will be an honour to support you . My Intention for this course & workshops is for you to be able to connect to your Inner Peace and Joy, and to live a life of Grace and Ease.

GUIDANCE FOR WORKSHOPS & DIRECTIONS
Ideally it is best not to eat for 2 hours before our workshop :).
Please arrive around 12.20pm so that you can settle in before we start at 12.30pm prompt with an opening meditation. No entry after 12.40pm.
The venue, Elgin House, is a few minutes walk from Crossharbour DLR (exit via Pepper St, at end of Pepper St turn rt & it's next to the hairdresser) or 10 mins walk from Canary Wharf.
It is very likely you will leave each session feeling deeply relaxed and I would suggest allowing a little time for yourself after the session, rather than rushing to your next appointment!
"I really love the sessions you do, they are the most powerful I have ever experienced." Arabella, London
"Fouzia is a fantastic teacher, very patient and attentive. Her classes are very gentle but incredibly powerful with a focus on the spiritual side of yoga that is often sadly neglected in the west. I feel like I've had an amazing healing after her classes. Highly recommended!" Suzanne, London
"Fouzia's yoga classes are more than the gentle poses that stretch and strengthen, there is also deep, relaxing breathing, a meditation, and each time a discussion of a different aspect of yogic philosophy. I am left deeply relaxed and energised the next day. Fouzia's loving, nurturing presence fills the room with joy and I really look forward to each class. I've never been to a yoga class where the instructor and the other students become much loved friends, and I love that!" Alex, London
"I've been doing yoga for most of my adult life, and with it I've found a sense of balance and self, in some of the toughest of times. But your session on chakra meditation has opened me up to an awareness I always somehow knew I was missing. This feels like the beginning of something new, the next phase of my journey. I felt touched by the simple, direct way you speak from the heart." Thank you. Bruno, London

MORE INFORMATION ON THE YOGA
We practice a slow-paced, Meditative form of Hatha Yoga, in which postures are held for several minutes and work deep into the muscles and connective tissues. This allows for the mind to move away from the body, so that the physical body is allowed to release layers of tension, relax & heal, increasing your sense of wellbeing. The practice ultimately helps to cultivate Self awareness of your Divine Self.
This is an energy-based yoga practice, focused on moving energy through the body and activating the Chakras, which are potent energy centres that govern different physical, emotional/energetic aspects of our being. This helps to develop a deep sense of inner awareness, calm the nervous system, balance the mind, and improves health & flexibility. Suitable for all levels, it provides wonderful balancing and harmonising qualities to our busy lifestyles and perfectly complements more active styles of yoga.
Each session will focus on warming up the energetic body, Asanas (poses), Pranayama (breathing), Meditation and will end with a deep guided Relaxation. Each week, there will be a focus on a particular Chakra, including a Meditation to music on that Chakra and an introduction to the Chakra. The 2 hour Hatha Yoga and Meditation practice will be followed by a lecture on a topic of Yogic philosophy or purification with Q & A.
This is a gentle approach to Yoga poses in which we move slowly, and focus on the different chakras during the poses, in a non-competitive environment that is welcoming to all. You will feel a deep sense of inner calmness, relaxation, connection to your Divine essence and a state of increased well being. Yoga ultimately opens the path towards health, contentment, and inner transformation.
