About this Event
Experience your breath and the balancing of your energy with this gentle class. Stress management, relaxation, healing + feeling supported are waiting for you, without needing to do or be more. You have everything you need already within you. Marion will guide you towards (re)connecting with your Self, with your inner unshakeable peace and joy. We will be moving though through gentle movements to prepare the body to relax and then tap into focusing and relaxing the mind. The practice of Yoga Nidra starts with a gradual relaxation, then moves through intention, breath, awareness and visualization. This practice is for EVERY BODY.
Your practice will be best supported with wearing comfortable, non-restrictive clothes (let the prana flow). Since you will be laying for a good part of the practice, we suggest bringing an extra layer of clothes, warm socks, maybe a blanket and eye-pillow. Support your body in a way that feels good to you, so your mind can explore freely.
Important things to know:
What to Bring: Please bring anything you need to feel comfortable - yoga mat, blanket, pillow, eye mask, bolster, water bottle, journal and wear extra layers to stay warm.

We look forward to seeing you and flowing together. ♥️
Charlotte SHOUT Elemental Yoga + Fitness Series
This outdoor series will be connecting Charlotte SHOUT visitors back with their minds and bodies. Being immersed in nature and connecting with the Earth. An ecosystem we urgently need to look after – our only home. Living a healthier more sustainable lifestyle by healing ourselves is the first step to healing our planet.
Movement - Eleven all-level classes will be offered throughout the duration of the festival. Each one will be a different sequence of postures. Participants will have a new experience with every class (Restorative, Vinyasa, All-Levels body weight workout, Acro Yoga, Sound Healing, Chakra Flow, Qigong, Slow flow, Meditation) to connect the mind to the body through movement.
Breath - Gain perspective by viewing the Earth at a close distance and slow down with various breathwork techniques throughout class.
Awareness - We only have 1 body, we only have 1 planet. Participants will gain awareness of how their bodies feel when they move with intention, which will tie back to the ways we move throughout life in relation to Mother Earth.
We’ve created this free mindfulness toolkit for you to refer back to throughout your everyday life for mindful ways to care for yourself and the planet. Keeping it electronic for sustainability purposes and for ease of having access to this information anywhere and anytime you need.
There are 10 other free classes in this yoga series for you to enjoy. Learn more and sign up to reserve your space at: https://www.thetravelinggypsy.org/shout
