Qoya – Wise, Wild and Free – with Sonia Matthews
Quoya is an embodiment mindful movement practice based on the idea that through movement we remember our true essence is Wise, Wild and Free. Its an exploration of a theme and incorporates yoga, free dance, shadow contrast dance, shaking etc. I’m Sonia, and I’m passionate about movement and how it benefits the body, mind and spirit and how it reconnects us to our true essence. Qoya is a journey of movement through a theme, helping us to trust the physical sensation of truth in our bodies. It’s liberating and empowering. I believe the world can be a better place if we are all a little more connected to both ourselves and each other. And this is my offering to bring us a step closer to that
I would like to share my passion for yoga and complimentary therapies with you. I was lucky enough to be rated as one of the best 3 yoga classes in Doncaster by my students. My passion is to make Yoga accessible to everyone. I have had my own struggles with back pain, body image, shoulder and neck injuries, not feeling like I have a conventional yoga body (whatever that is). My journey into yoga has given me an amazing sense of well being and healing. I am hoping that anyone who comes to my classes finds that my teaching style makes yoga something they enjoy. I can’t wait for you to join me on the Yoga mat, teaching yoga I am in my absolute happy place!I So look forward to meeting you.

Ian Pepper – What Makes a Man
A three part workshop different subjects relating to masculinity:
1.‘Inside the Man box ‘ in which we look at what behaviour and feelings are permitted in society as a man and how we can change/challenge this
.2. ‘Heroes and Zeroes’ in which we look at the role models which had an impact on us as children and young men, who we might look to for advice and encouragement now, and what ‘good’ men look like to us. We will also look at ‘the Shadow’ and how accept and integrate our weaknesses.
3. ‘Who is the Modern Man?’ in which we explore some of the issues facing men in their changing roles from the job market to gender identity and unpack how we can traverse this new landscape. I am interested in helping to support men to lead happier and healthier lives.

We will discuss practical tips to simplify everything that has to do with feeding, and explore how to raise happy eaters and provide them with the foundation of a healthy relationship with food for their lifetime.
