Embodying Tarot: A Yoga and Tarot Workshop

 

In this 2 hour workshop we will use the practices of Tarot and Yoga as ways to connect with ourselves, set intentions, and embody and map out our emotions and inner world. Whether you’re interested in learning about Tarot, or are a seasoned reader and curious about finding new ways of connecting with their magic, this workshop is a chance to playfully explore, move your body, and ground yourself.

 

On the day you will:

 

  • Get an overview of some of the major arcana and symbols used in Tarot reading.

  • Explore intuitive movement, and play with matching shapes, movement and meditation practices to the cards.

  • Move through a narrative driven flow led by the cards.

  • Take some deep rest and meditation in Yoga Nidra.

 

This workshop is intended to be accessible to as many people as possible, and no prior experience of yoga or tarot is required. Options will be provided throughout the movement practices, and you are encouraged to move in your own way, at your own pace

LGBTQIA+ Community Yoga

 

A monthly extended yoga class for the LGBTQIA+ community co-taught by Lou and Gabi. This class is an opportunity for us to come together in a safe and inclusive environment, to joyfully move our bodies, take deep, nourishing rest and be in community together. The class is made up of an accessible flow practice and restorative & yoga nidra practice, which Gabi and Lou will alternate teaching. We will conclude by coming together for a group discussion and check in (and maybe some vegan treats!).

 

This class is body positive, fat inclusive and very queer! We welcome people of all identities and backgrounds, and celebrate the diversity of our vibrant community. The movement-based yoga will always have options to suit your individual body on that day, but you do need to be able to get up and down off the floor unaided.

Priced on a sliding scale £10/£20/£30 and booking through About Balance,

Bits & Pieces: Life Drawing and Creative Writing

Bits & Pieces is a playful and provocative workshop series running in Brighton and London that uses life drawing and creative writing to create deeper connections with ourselves and our communities.

We are unapologetically queer: our workshops are part of community building, and about getting people together to socialise and connect. We are feminist, body positive, and dedicated to social justice which often informs our themes! We use themes to format sessions, so that we can play and explore with art to reflect on society, identity and ways of being in the world. We believe in art as community care and activism and are against the gatekeeping of creativity.

Our aim is to create accessible and fun art spaces that encourage everyone to get involved, regardless of experience, and without worrying about the finished product.
