Exciting Taunton Yoga Workshop: March 25

Taunton Yoga Workshop
Gravity, Grounding and Somatic Practices

Have you ever wondered how to create classes that create a sense of being grounded, balanced and stable?

Join Catherine for this full day Taunton Yoga Workshop where we will be exploring gravity, grounding and somatic practices and how they affect our nervous system.   We’ll investigate how our bodies respond to gravity, discover ways of releasing unnecessary tension, unravel habitual movement patterns and find ease in yoga and everyday movement.

When we move with simplicity and can really lean into the pull of the earth, something magical happens.  Our nervous systems naturally let go and move into a quieter space.  This is one of the key reasons we practice yoga – to downregulate, and to understand how to consciously relax.

Post pandemic, we now have a beautiful opportunity to join together and explore how group energy can enhance our practice.

During this Taunton Yoga Workshop we’ll:

* discover how our connection with the earth generates stability and steadiness
* investigate how to work with gravity rather than against it
* explore our personal relationship with gravity and how that helps us become more fully present and centred in ourselves
* explore simple somatic movements and the relationship between sensory awareness and relaxed psychological states
* enjoy the experience of working in-person, observing how group energy can enhance our practice
* leave feeling grounded, de-stressed and re-energised


A light vegetarian lunch is included

Catch the bus

Somerset has an extensive public transport network and offers an immediate alternative for individuals to reduce their energy use and carbon footprint.

Buses of Somerset run regular services into the town centre and to other parts of Taunton and its surroundings.

Slinky is an accessible bus service funded by Somerset County Council for people unable to access conventional transport. This service can be used for a variety of reasons such as getting to local health appointments or exercise classes, visiting friends and relatives, going shopping or for social reasons. You can also use the Slinky as a link to other forms of public transport.

If you don’t fancy taking the train, a cheaper option may be by coach.  With regular services running to various parts of the country, it can be a more financially viable option than driving the car.

National Express coaches operate a bookable service from Taunton bus station to many locations across the country including London, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff and Torquay. You can find out more on the National Express website
