Please note the new website and email addresses below. The old ones will work for a little while but are being fazed out. Don’t forget to add this to your contacts or your emails from The Yoga Shed may be lost:
This workshop introduces you to your Emotional Landscape and asks the questions, how do we identify emotions? Why is it important that we acknowledge them and what happens if we ignore them? What is the role of the body? And how can yoga help?
This 2 hour workshop is an introduction to self development and how to gain a deeper insight into your own feelings, thoughts and somatic responses.
You will also explore:
How to identify emotions psychically and mentally and why it is important to do so.
To name feelings and identify where they may be stored somatically.
To use yoga practices to allow emotional identification.
To gain an insight into emotional resilience and how working with the body can encourage it.
The yogic and psychotherapeutic approaches to our emotions – similarities and differences.
This workshop works well as a stand alone session for those looking to start their journey into self development and emotional work. Or as part of a 6 week course, that will be offered only to those that have already attended this 2 hour introduction.
What to expect:
During this 2 hour online workshop you will be invited to participate in discussion about emotions, listen to tutorials on emotional accessibility and participate in gentle yoga practices. There will also be an opportunity to explore what emotions mean to you and what part they play in your physical experiences.
This is not a group counselling session as there will be limited time to explore individual process, however you will be asked to participate in the discussions, at a level that feels comfortable to you…. no pressure and certainly no expectation that you will share any more than you feel ready to. It is understood that we may all be at different places and this will be respected at all times.
How much we cover during this initial workshop will vary each time depending on group participation and needs.
Tracy Gaillie is a yoga teacher, yoga therapist and counsellor. With many years of experience of working somatically. She has more recently specialised in working with the body for emotional release and has a special interest in bringing together traditional yoga wisdom with psychotherapeutic knowledge to facilitate wellbeing.
This will be hosted via Zoom, you will therefore require a Zoom account and will be emailed with a link 30 minutes before the session.
It is with a very heavy heart that I have made the decision to temporarily close The Yoga Shed until further notice.
Whilst Im sure this is no surprise, I have very much wanted to stay open and this is a really tough decision, but your safety is paramount and following recent government guidance, it seems the right thing to do at this time.
As always, I appreciate your support and already miss seeing you here and very much look forward to opening again and restarting the classes when possible. I will of course contact you at that time…..
Fees already paid will be carried over for when we return. If this represents a problem for you please do get in touch for a refund. These fees can also be used towards the online classes.
However, in the meantime, I would love us to stay connected and so to the good news……
You have probably already heard of the online classes I am planning and here are the full details as to how you can get involved……..
The Yoga Shed Online
Due to these unprecedented times, where we are currently no longer able to meet to enjoy our yoga together, I wanted to offer an alternative for the time being to keep you connected to the Yoga Shed Community and keep up your practice at home.
With more and more of us working from home or in isolation, it seems like the perfect time to create a positive connection to ourselves and our practice and I hope this helps to keep you relaxed, strong and grounded at this unusual time.
So, how does it work?
The Yoga Shed Online is a closed group on Facebook where, from next week I intend to Live Stream Yoga Classes, relaxation sessions and possibly meditation and breathing practices. There will be a minimum of 2 new practices a week, to include a gentle therapeutic practice, a hatha yoga practice and/or a relaxation. You can join in with these classes either Live, that is as I am doing them and get the feel of being here at The Yoga Shed, or later if that suits you better, the content will remain on the site for you to access for at least a week.
The timetable of classes will be added to the group on Friday 20th March and I anticipate putting a live introduction on to the page this week also.
How do I join?
From your facebook page search The Yoga Shed Online and request to join the group. Look for the mandala picture (as there is more than one). Answer the questions required to join.
I know some of you may not already use Facebook but it’s really easy to join and this will give you access to this service, at least until we have classes together and hopefully also give us all some contact in this isolating time. I am more than happy to help you set up, just give me a call.
Additionally, if this proves a success there is potential to continue to add classes after the Yoga Shed is up and running again, so you need not miss a class again.
In order to access the group, you have to be a regular practitioner of yoga, an existing member of the yoga shed or someone I have worked with in the past or have an quick assessment before joining in order to assess your needs. This will be a chargeable service.
Classes are attended at your own risk. It is a one way feed and I cannot see your practice, therefore it is expected that you have sufficient experience to adapt the class to your needs.
I appreciate that for some these are going to be challenging times and if, like me, you have recently lost your income for the time being I would like you to still have access to this content. I feel it is important that this is accessible to everyone that would like to join in.
Therefore, I have made the decision to offer a selection of payment options, so that you can choose how much you want to pay. No matter what you pay you will receive the same content and I know wholeheartedly that you will all choose the most suitable amount for you at this time, according to your individual circumstances. I therefore suggest that you choose from the following 3 options:
£10 per month 2. £15 per month 3. £20 per month.
If you would like to choose another amount please let me know. Free Concessions are available on request for those adversely affected by the Corona Virus.
Payment can be made in 2 ways. From enrolment fees you have already paid (simply advise me and I will deducted them and keep a record here). Or to set up a standing order to the usual BACS details ( I will send these to new members via PM).
I hope this all makes sense but please do contact me should you need any further assistance or, sincerely, if you just need a chat.
Following the popularity of this class last time and the many requests to add another date for this deeply restorative and healing practice, we have listened and here it is 🙂 and this time its a slightly longer class to fully immerse yourself in the vibrations of the sound and shift into the deeply restful restorative postures.
Another opportunity to experience this relaxing combination of restorative (supportive) postures with an immersion of sound. Gongs, singing bowls and other evocative sounds will ease you towards serenity as you rest in deeply restorative postures. Limited places so please book soon:
Wow, wow, wow what an absolutely incredible response all of you wonderful people gave to the event this week. I am overwhelmed and full of gratitude for those of you that attended the events and also for the many of you unable to come, that generously donated too. You raised an incredible £734.60 for the Winter Night Shelter MK and I know this will go a long way to help this incredible charity ease the burden of homelessness this winter and throughout the coming year. They are a fantastic organisation that not only offers immediate help to get people off the streets in these cold months, to offer food and a bed, but they continue their work through the year, they “….aim to relieve poverty, distress and help homeless people rebuild their lives
YOU HAVE DONE A WONDERFUL THING. I can’t thank you enough. Wishing you peace and joy, you deserve it.
Why not visit the facebook page to see more photos of the events that took place…..
