What are The Connection Sessions?
The Connection Sessions are a monthly event on the first Monday of every month, grown from a vision I had to create an experience with greater richness than can be offered in a normal yoga class, and that provides space for you to check in with where you're at on a regular basis.
Held in the beautiful and intimate Holdspace in Angel, it's an evening to come together in a small group, to connect inwards as well as with the community in the room. It's something of a retreat-vibe in an evening in London, working with a theme as a guide for our explorations. The evenings are an opportunity to take a moment to pause at the start of the month, reflecting on what's gone and setting intentions for the month to come. They're an opportunity to check in with where you're at and ask what you need. And also, importantly, they're an opportunity to come together in community with others.
Sessions vary according to energy at the time, but will likely involve meditation, journalling, a sharing circle (option to share or just listen) as well as embodied movement.
Rather wonderfully, February's session happens to coincide with the February new moon, so we'll be honouring the general energy of a new moon, which is to rest, reflect and turn inward as we set intention for the next cycle, but we'll also look at the specific energies of the February moon which is in Aquarius (my sign!).
Researching the aquarian new moon, I found the following passage which I think nicely forms a theme for our explorations:
Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.
Expect more journaling, sharing and exploring release and freedom through embodied movement.
Feedback from previous sessions
"The connection session was an opportunity to re-connect with my true self, and sift through the noise and fuzz that often clouds my thoughts and just listen to the inner me!"
"I left the session feeling grounded and grateful and totally relaxed a beautiful way to spend a Monday evening."
"Thanks for sharing such a special and thoughtful experience. So look forward to the next."
I'm offering 2 super earlybird tickets for this event at just £12, then it's £15 (earlybird)/£18 (standard) thereafter, with a maximum of 10 people.
If you are interested in joining together in a small circle, an evening for yourself, where London-life will stay outside the door for a few hours, please come along.
