Wild Herb Wreath Making
Spend a relaxing hour entwining and winding all sorts of seasonal garden wild foliage and create your very own Wild Herb Wreath at The Norwich Yoga Festival. This gorgeous session will be hosted by Katie at Wild Oak Workshops.
Katie will show you how to create your stunning wreath using ivy tendrils and divinely scented wild herbs all from the garden: mint, lemon balm, oregano and lavender. Using a willow woven wreath base you will learn the art of Wild Floristry creating an everlasting circle of Herbs.
Allowing the herbs to naturally dry, you will then be able to use them in teas, infusions, pop them in ice cubes, or collect them in herb bags to enjoy in your home.
Katie will share her Love of Nature and explain the healing properties of each herb, where you will discover fascinating facts to help you reconnect with Nature.

With Shani Bella
I invite you to enter the spiral and join your sisterhood tribe as we honour the turning of the wheel.
Join us in our Goddess Temple and sit in a Women's Circle Sanctuary at the Norwich and Norfolk Yoga Festival as we honour the sacred lands of Norfolk and enter the Portal of ‘Lammas’, the harvest season between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.
It is now high summer (YES!) and the union of Sun and Earth, of God and Goddess, of Masculine and Feminine Energy has produced the First Harvest.
Lammas is the celebration of this first, Grain Harvest, a time for gathering in and giving thanks for abundance. August is His sacred month. In this Lammas Women's Circle you will go on a journey to remembrance, to awaken your feminine and call in the abundance of the harvest to create your vision for the turning seasons.
Join me in the Zen Tent at 3:30pm

Want to experience clarity, strength and stability? To discover the power to choose your responses as you move through the world, so that you can make choices that will nourish you and in turn others?
In this 35 minute teaching, British Wheel of Yoga qualified teacher Catherine Rolfe will guide you onto this path as she introduces you to the practice of mindfulness meditation, known as Shamatha in the Buddhist tradition.
Shamatha means resting in peace with whatever arises. We’ll be covering the building blocks of this practice, as well as how to build a habit of daily practice and the benefits of doing so. There’ll also be time to ask any questions.
Whether you are an experienced practitioner looking to refine and refresh your meditation practice, are completely new to meditation and unsure where to start, all are welcome to join this session and can expect a warm welcome, as Catherine demystifies and simplifies mindfulness meditation.
10:20-11am @ The Norwich Yoga Festival
The opposite of stress - Maitri or loving-kindness meditation
What do Patanjali, Buddhist teachings and 21st century neuroscience all have in common? They all tell us that through practice we have the power to choose what we cultivate in our minds. So, what if instead of our normal natural negative bias, we could cultivate friendliness, compassion and happiness?
In this workshop, you’ll learn how to do just that, as British Wheel of Yoga qualified teacher Catherine Rolfe introduces you to and guides you through the practice of Maitrior loving-kindness meditation.
Maitri, sometimes also known as unconditional friendliness, involves placing our awareness on feelings of compassion and kindness, allowing us to reconnect to these natural qualities that we all possess. You’ll be taken step by step through this contemplative practice, as well as how to build a habit of daily Maitri and the benefits of doing so. There’ll also be time to ask any questions you may have.
Whether you are an experienced practitioner, are completely new to meditation, or somewhere in between, all are welcome to join this session and experience the clarity and serenity that arises when the qualities of the heart are cultivated.
1:05-1:40pm @ the Norwich Yoga Festival
Join Fi for an immersive yoga workshop, Journey to the Heart.
Working with the original and purest ceremonial cacao (Keiths Cacao), a sacred plant medicine, we will create a space filled with intention and love inviting you to journey into the body. Using yoga practices (breathwork, asana and meditation) and the magic of ceremonial cacao, we will move together, through a heart centred yoga flow and free movement, to expand and energise mind body and spirit.
This is a practice available for all levels. Please be aware of the contraindications of ceremonial cacao, if you have any questions please let Fi know.

Awaken the chakras
Feeling a bit out of balance or just want to find out more about these ancient practices? Whatever your reason for joining me, you’d be very welcome!
Join me, Theresa Samworth in the zen tent for a revitalising and restoring session aimed at balancing your energy by working through the chakras.
The word chakra means wheel in Sanskrit. According to yoga philosophy, there are 72,000 energy channels in the body called nadis. The Chakras are the spinal column regions where the nadis (or energy channels) cross. It is believed that when the chakras are fully functioning the kundalini energy or life force can move up the body’s energy channels (i.e through the chakras) and reach the Sahasrara chakra, the ‘bridge to the cosmos’.
Using the ancient practices of pranayama (breathwork), visualisation, the chakra bija mantras and a specially written meditation practice by ‘insight timer’ app meditation teacher Theresa, together we will awaken and balance the chakras (hopefully!) leaving you feeling beautifully balanced.
