On the night we will start by learning the weaving technique. This is the easiest approach, works for most garments and is quick to do. We will also touch base on another technique called Swiss Darning. Bring a variety of garments for discussion. All yarn and darning needles will be provided.

No yoga experience is needed for Yocella.
This is a self-care practice of yin yoga, live cello, silence and poetry to support the body when life gets a little too yang, fast and busy. Beginners very welcome and Yocella is suitable during pregnancy.
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin yoga teaches us to be more flexible with our emotions, not just our body. Yin is a wonderful compliment to all other energetic exercise and busy lifestyles which are Yang elements. Yin yoga is the stretching side of yoga (yin) with no strength (yang) work. During Yocella we hold a pose between 3 – 8 minutes. Throughout this time the body gets the opportunity to de-stress and slow down. As we hold our yin poses the fascia/connective tissue (webbing that covers our muscles) releases the stress/stories held in our body, giving the nervous system a proper rest and a chance to let go. Yin Yoga reminds us to take the time to nurture, slow down and not be so tough on yourself.
Helps prepare for meditation, improved circulation and energy flow, de-stress and improve flexibility, mobility in joints and ligaments, calmer, improved self awareness and self care throughout the body can be experienced from adding yin yoga to your world.
