Journey Into The PAST

To open the pop up, day one will begin with wellbeing, safety and security at the forefront as we journey into the past through a wholesome yoga practice and collective sharing circle. You’ll have the opportunity to delve into your senses, connect with others and share your own stories through objects, all whilst being held and supported from start to finish by dedicated wellbeing practitioners.

We, Anisha & Neelam, will begin by welcoming you into the community space and to the wellbeing practitioners that will be supporting you through the afternoon.

‌Yoga with Jaina

In this yoga session Jaina will take you on an experiential journey to ground into your body and the present moment. Jaina will deliver carefully guided instructions along with hands-on adjustments and assistance for those who would like a deeper experience. Through the power of movement, breath and energy you will regain a deep connection to yourself.

Once we have all arrived and connected into our body and felt into the collective group energy Jaina will guide us through a meditation to move our awareness and attention into the space of the heart.

‌Resting into the heart we can find a sense of love and compassion for ourselves and the feelings and emotions that we may be experiencing. The heart is the gateway to the soul and it is at this point that we will become more receptive to our soul.

The session will end with a guided relaxation where you will feel that you have fully arrived into the body, mind, heart and soul. It is here that you can rest, let go and trust in the experience and journey that you have taken and the journey that you are about to embark on in the sharing circle.

We do ask you to bring your own yoga mat on the day. There will be a limited number of spare mats available.

Sharing Circle with Anisha & Neelam Supported by Poonam (YSM8)

Objects have the ability to hold many stories, emotions and energy. After connecting to your body and soul through yoga with Jaina, we, Anisha & Neelam will welcome you into a beautiful sharing circle supported by somatic coach, artist and creative facilitator, Poonam Dhuffer.

Poonam will be supporting us to hold the sharing circle. She will invite you to ground into the space, relax deeper into your bodies, and express your stories.

Anisha & Neelam invite you to bring along an object that is special to you and holds a story or stories that you wish to reflect on and share. Objects could include an heirloom such as a piece of jewellery or an item of clothing.

Throughout the sharing circle you will have the opportunity to share your stories with the community, listen to the stories of others and reflect on the beautiful group energy.

There will be time throughout for moments of pause and reflection and we will close our circle in a collective ceremony. 

On this day we invite you to wear an element of green in your outfit, the colour of grounding, vitality and calm!

(Suitable for 16 years old and above: More details in the tabs below.)
