A Very Special Midwinter Mythical Flow
What better time than a dark January night to gather round for storytelling, a warming Vinyasa practice followed by supper in great company. Come along to nourish soul and spirit with Tanja Mickwitz's much-loved Mythical Flow and the East of Eden community at beautiful 42 Acres in Shoreditch.
Mythical Flow forms a full journey through mythology, yoga, mantra and mudra which will take you into a deeper understanding of yoga as well as yourself. The stories act as a mirror reflecting back at us how we choose to act within the stories of our own lives. The symbolism of the myths is really about what happens within ourselves and connecting to different deity energies allows us to reflect over how these different aspects of ourselves shape our behaviour and who we are in the world. Through the tools of practice we can invoke exactly what we need to act more skilfully and live more fully. And in addition to being a great tool for reflection these stories provide great fun as a backdrop to practice!
The night will begin with Tanja gathering everyone around to begin the story and set the scene for the evening's tale. By candlelight we will then begin to move into our bodies, as Tanja leads us through an extended warming practice, letting the story guide the flow. As the story comes to a close, we will move into a deep and nourishing final relaxation.
Following practice, we will gather round once more for a delicious vegan supper from Tegan the Vegan, fellow E17 resident and vegan chef who believes 'being vegan doesn't have to mean missing out on all the good stuff'.
Expect food that will nourish the body and please the tastebuds.
The night promises to be a special treat. Come alone or with friends, and experience the perfect way to ground and slow down in the depths of midwinter.
