Mindful Yin – Tuesdays with Monique – 1 hr of bliss – POP UP CLASSES
This pop up 60 min session is an invitation to sit with all that is rising moment by moment, acknowledging and honoring all that has come to pass. Letting the shift and changes of the year to gently wash over you, letting go of the need to fix or change anything. Just being with the movement, breath and body. This gently led session will include mindfulness meditations woven into the yin held shapes, allowing you to go yin-side. I look forward to seeing you on the mat. A wonderful to fully immerse in deep rest and digest as we carefully and curiously explore issues in our tissues.

This joyful and playful class is just the right amount of yang energy, offering invitational cues and movements that allow you to move mindfully with a sense of connection and purpose. Each breath guiding the movement. We begin with yang like flow and slowly and surely settle towards the earth finishing the class with yin like awareness and intentional slowing of the poses. Allowing the body to slowly cool down holding poses for more tensile stretch and finally finishing with a mindful meditation that will leave you feeling calm and peaceful.

Other ways to move and meditate online
As we are all adapting to these unprecedented times, I would like to acknowledge all the amazing opportunities we now do have to help us deal with our time of . This is a time for us during isolation as societies to band together more so than ever. We can see how powerful we are in doing so. I such a short time in Italy the waterways in Venice have become clear, dolphins are now swimming through the canals. With only 2 weeks in lock down the earth begins to heal. Yes the fall out from this will be magnificent but we can also see that there will be many positives from this time ‘out’.
Being at home means you may spend time with your loved ones, read books, cook, eat well, move your body in the comfort of your own home, catch up on rest and yes communicate with friends and family via facebook, skype, zoom and other virtual platforms. Make meditation a part of your daily schedule. If you have not had time before now is the time!
I also have recorded for your ease and comfort from home 7 days of Mindful Meditations (audio’s x 20 minutes each) and 7 days of Mindful Movement videos (30-40 minutes each). You can purchase these here. Or the entire package as a E-Book which has dialogue recorded and workshops for 7 days, meditations, mindful movement and inspirational quotes and reflections. This is a jam packed E-Book one of its kind for you to fully immerse in during this time.
My Mindfulness teacher shared this quote with us whilst we were in training. “Keep calmly knowing change”. And, so there it is. Change is upon us, and change is moment by moment. We cannot know the future, but we can have choice in how we respond and deal with these changes that are happening now with certainty that we are all in this together and united. Wishing you all metta and love, safety, health and wellness xx
