Workshops and events
Embodied Voice Gathering ~ with Anna Grabner
Date: Friday 22nd January
The Embodied Voice Gathering creates a space for you to reconnect with your voice and experience your voice as an embodied expression of your Self.
The gathering will include a guided breathing and toning practice, to ground yourself and to be more present for anything that needs a more embodied expression in your life right now.
You will be introduced to vocal and non-vocal techniques from Voice Movement Therapy, to understand your vocal instrument within your body better. You will explore the resonant and healing qualities of your voice, and thereby reconnect with your innate voice wisdom and rediscover the sound of a more liberated voice.
You will be safely guided through the practices, hearing only the facilitators voice. This gives you the freedom to sound, move and sing from the comfort of your home.
To integrate the experience and to feel heard, there will be space for sharing and singing.
Anna Grabner is essentially passionate about the healing qualities of the voice. As a singer and psychologist she found an inspiring match in Voice Movement Therapy (VMT). Since her VMT training in 2012 she has been evolving her work based on this safe foundation to assist people in reconnecting with their authenticity through their voice. Anna has found that the playful nature of VMT encourages people to unfold their personal stories in guided voice movement journeys. In her sessions she assists her clients in connecting with their authenticity through movement and voice, inviting them to create their own life poems and songs. Her intention is to provide a safe playground for profound and creative self-expression.
Yin Yoga New Year Immersion ~ with Johanna Hellinger
Date: Saturday, 23rd January
Price: 15€ per person (online)
online session includes the recording
The new year is the time for new beginnings in our culture. In order to support yourself at this time of the year it is important that the energy in your body and organs is circulating well. Through Massage, compression, stretching and meditation you can effectively slow down, relax deeply and find physical, emotional and mental balance.
Yin Yoga originates from Taoist Yoga and is a combination of passively held positions to gently stretch the connective tissue and release tension that is deeply held in the body. The immersion starts by setting an intension and clear out stagnancy with Qui Gong purifying techniques. You will then relax into Yin Yoga Positions close to the ground that we hold for a minimum of 2-7 minutes. There are no adjustments or breathing techniques, you are simply invited to surrender and become the observer of your breath.
You will be given affirmations to repeat and observe your internal and personal response. At the end of the immersion you can write down whatever has come up for you. This helps to clear out old stagnant energy and emotions to see more clearly so that we can move forward into 2021 with renewed passion and purpose.
The immersion will take you into stillness and incorporates the theory and philosophy of Yin Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine and myofascial release techniques.
Johanna is a passionate yoga teacher, surfer and Thai massage therapist. After experimenting with different yoga styles and methods, she completed several yoga teacher trainings with Trimurti Yoga School in India on 5 Elements Yoga based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. Back in Lisbon she trained with Hadadi School to be a Thai Yoga Massage therapist. She is excited to share her experience and the benefits of Yin Yoga with you.

Scaravelli inspired Yoga Immersions ~ with Katrin Heuser
Dates: selected Sundays, 24 Jan, 14 & 28 Feb
Price: 20€ per person
A fun and in-depth exploration of movement and individual postures with the aim of finding more space in the body and accessing deeper strength and a more congruent alignment. We look for ways to create the conditions in the body so great movement feels effortless.
In these immersions we will focus on regulating our nervous system and finding ways to return into our own axis, physically, emotionally and mentally.
The Scaravelli inspired approach is an invitation to play with gravity, free the breath and find space in the body to allow it to move to its full potential. That way the body can start to work deeper and move more freely into yoga postures, exploring how these openings and connections can help us un-do habitual (and potentially painful) holding patterns. Then we can embark on a journey of restoration and transformation.

Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org (you will be sent a link to join the online gathering)
Womb Wisdom Circle is a sacred space where you are invited to relax into who you are, to drop into your womb and heart, to connect to your feminine receptive nature and to feel nourished and supported by your inner nature as well as by other women.
It is an invitation for you to learn to honour and respect your unique inner rhythms and to tap into your blood and womb wisdom. In this circle, Martina invites you to connect to your roots, to your essence, to your Inner Wise Woman. What wisdom is she holding for you right now? Can you slow down enough to hear her silent voice whispering what the earth is asking of you?
We will share, breathe, move and meditate together. Womb wisdom circle is a birthing circle, a place to connect with like-minded women, where we can remember our creative and birthing capacity as women, taking responsibility for ourselves and the earth. Let's birth a new world together.
All women welcome! This is an online event via Zoom.
