Christmas- cinnamon cookies baking in the oven, fairy lights twinkling, carol singing. Family obligations, extra housework, crazy shopping and meeting deadlines -the festive season can be a magical yet fraught time.
How often does our inner critic tell us that we are not doing enough at Christmas; not spending enough; not socialising enough; not being enough for our families? These self-mutilating, habitual thoughts force us to plough on through in a determined struggle to complete endless to-do lists. BUT, is the cost worth it? We ignore our bodies pleas for rest in a desperate attempt to prevent feelings of inadequacy emerging.
In Chinese Medicine theory, the winter is the time for dormancy, an opportunity to refuel for the brighter months. Overlooking these natural feelings leads to colds, flu, stress.
Hannah and Lena return to nourish, to care, to hold space and to remind you not to sacrifice your own essential needs for others. This Yuletide season, give your loved ones and yourself the most precious gift of all - presence over presents.
Join us for our last workshop of the year. Four hours to escape the festive madness filled with yoga, massage, mulled wine and mince pies.
