Free Vinyasa Yoga Class

This is a free taster class as part of the Woodlands Community Health & Wellbeing events in July. Please text Sarah if you would like to attend - 07800 652367

Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic practice which coordinates movement with the breath and combines elements of both Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga.

This practice provides a strong physical practice and has all the calming effects of a moving meditation. The postures increase coordination, strength and flexibility, whilst easing tension and creating space in both the mind and body.

This class will explore some of the basic yoga postures and fundamental principles of Vinyasa Yoga. Much of the initial focus will be on breath work, alignment, learning to coordinate movement with the breath. You are encouraged to try different variations of poses which suit you and to work at your own pace.

Please come 10 mins early.
Mats are provided.

Free Yin Yoga Class

This is a free taster class as part of the Woodlands Community Health & Wellbeing events in July. Please text Sarah if you would like to attend - 07800 652367

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time— three to five minutes.

Yin Yoga is the practice of floor based postures that apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments of the body—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

The passive nature of long help postures gives time for deeper reflection and provides a more meditative approach to yoga; it aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence and peace. However, it is not a replacement for meditation itself.

In addition to people seeking a calmer, quieter practice, Yin Yoga is an excellent style of yoga to complement more active forms of yoga and sports in particular for professional athletes.

Please arrive 10 mins early.
Mats provided.

Rooted
Aug
6
to Aug 7

Rooted

The exhibition is free to attend and open Tuesday 6th of August from 2-4pm and Wednesday 7th of August from 12-4pm.

Presented in the urban setting of the Woodlands Workspace, Rooted features a newly commissioned art installation by Allison Smith. Visitors are welcomed into an immersive environment of sight, sounds and scents that encapsulates the delicate ecological balance of the natural environment of a Scottish woodland.

The devastating effects deforestation has on the planet and the need for humanity to reconnect with nature to tackle the manifestations of the climate crisis directly informs and fuels the work. Through a variety of natural materials and techniques the importance of trees to life on earth and the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature amidst the current ecological crisis are examined. It will reflect upon what the future might hold should the exploitation of the earth’s natural resources be halted and what the true long-term effects are of the mass-produced disposable society we now live in.

The exhibition is free to attend and open Tuesday 6th of August from 2-4pm and Wednesday 7th of August from 12-4pm. The Woodlands Workspace has full wheelchair access and accessible toilets. Metered parking is available on the street and St Georges Cross Underground station is less than 5 minutes walk away.

Rooted is accompanied by the panel discussion Ground Work: artists addressing the climate crisis, featuring Allison Smith, Ellie Harrison, Caitlin Connelly and Beatrice Searle. Exploring the methods and approaches contemporary visual artists use to raise awareness and change opinions regarding the ecological damage caused by the climate crisis.

Please note due to the venue size, places are strictly limited, please email the curator, Jeanie Black at J.Black1@student.gsa.ac.uk for further details and to book a slot.

Eco Printing in Woodlands

Eco Printing in Woodlands

Printing in Woodlands is a community project happening in the Woodlands Community gardens in the West end of Glasgow. Over several months we are using the natural technique of eco printing to record the botanicals growing in the garden. Banners, prints and hand bound books will be produced over time and shared with the community in a late autumn event.

To book: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/eco-printing-in-woodlands-tickets-64010797017

Eco Printing is a natural process creating beautiful prints out of steaming botanical material onto cloth or paper.

Over an afternoon of fun come and learn the basics and produce a piece of natural artwork, share coffee and cake with your fellow printers.

I am inviting you to come and take part in a 3 hours Eco Printing event and to become community eco printers for one afternoon.

You will be welcomed in the beautiful garden and be given a briefing on how to proceed. You will put a bundle together using local leaves and paper/cloth, and take part in the making of a communal piece, While our prints are steaming we will share coffee and cake and discover the beautiful community garden.

We will unrol the bundles around 4pm and share the good feel, you will be leaving with your beautiful unique work and a small record of the Woodlands garden. We will together open the communal bundle and take a group photo to be exhibited with our final work.

You will leave with your unique prints.

Eco printing is a natural dye technique, bring an apron and if you have some delicate hands latex gloves.

Please bring a piece of cake to share we will have a communal cake plate.

Mindful Movement Practice: Woodlands Health & Wellbeing Week

Movement From the Inside and Outside with Penny Chivas

Working indoors, and outdoors (weather permitting!), we'll explore ways of moving and feeling comfortable in our own skin. Penny will then introduce a version of a mindful movement practice - Authentic Movement - which we'll use a base in order to be with and around the beautiful Woodlands Community Gardens. We'll aim to slow down, relax and find a deeper way to be the natural environment.

Please wear comfortable clothing, and be prepared to be outside.  Meet at the Workspace at 11am. The session will finish at 2, with time allocated for a break as well.

This is a free event.

Glasgow Writers' Retreat with Writer's HQ

Glasgow Writers' Retreat with Writer's HQ

Look, we get it. We have the same problem. We make the grandest of plans – Booker Prize winning plans… Pulitzer winning plans! – but life gets in the way.

There’s always one more thing to do, or one more stupid thing to look at on the Internet. Before you know it, it’s gone midnight, you’re sitting in your pants eating Dairy Milk, and you’ve written 25 words. Ugh. That’s why we’ve developed our retreats, in which we turn off the wifi and make you get on with it.


Because the only way to get your writing done is to sit down and write.

What happens at a Writers’ HQ retreat?
Writing! More writing! Some more writing! A bucket-load of writing! Also much tea and biscuit eating
Spend the day in a room with a bunch of writers, limitless caffeine and – horror! – no internet
We’ll help you set your writing goals for the day and for the long-term, celebrate your successes, and break through blocks
Write in timed sprints with lots of breaks for hot drinks, non-stop eating, literary chat and leg-stretching
A score board, gold stars, general silliness and supportive competitiveness will help you reach your targets, break bad habits, and get your writing moving
No distractions. No excuses. Just writing. Perf
What’s included?
All the tea and coffee you can drink
Morning snacks, lunch, biscuits and cake
A supportive environment and gold stars
Lots of encouragement and the lovely warm glow of finally-getting-it-done satisfaction
Who are Writers’ HQ retreats for?
Everyone!
New writers! Emerging writers! Aspiring writers! Experienced writers! Not-sure-if-they’re-really-allowed-to-call-themselves-writers! (hint: if you write, you’re a writer)
Writers who want to tinker with some ideas or make a start on a brand new project.
Writers with a work-in-progress that’s stalled or been put aside while life takes over.
Writers who just wanna get shit done.
People writing fiction, non-fiction, scripts, academic texts, copy, articles, blogs, poetry, creative non-fiction, genre, high brow, low brow, and anything else that needs an alphabet shuffle.
People who want to drink tea and eat biscuits and write some words in a fun, supportive environment.

£37 per ticket. To book visit https://writershq.co.uk/class/glasgow-writers-retreat-3/?fbclid=IwAR0OjoX_aM1wlYSu5Ps7JpzWbBzoSERrFuzqaOHuMW-CuJiMxR5cTSrLWtA

People interested in or new to XR are very welcome to join us, too.

There will be tea provided :) feel free to bring cozy clothes and some nibbles (we have a wee kitchen), if you like.
