Saturday 28th September 2019 >> YOGA Therapy for Insomnia @ Yoga Venue Oxford – £35

15:00 – 16:30

Deep restful sleep is a great blessing. We live in a time where increasing numbers of us suffer from the effects of not being restored through deep sleep. I spent many uneasy years with insomnia with little idea of what resources were available to help me rest again. My own journey back to sleep left me with a passion to help resource others so that their journey was not as long as mine. As a generalization, insomnia is caused by a stressed nervous system which remains activated when it is not softened and nourished through deep rest. Encouraging easefulness is the road to a cure. Ease cannot be induced through medicalization, so pills and potions which though occasionally offering respite offer no systemic route to reorientation.

Ease comes through self-care. So, the sleep deprived person has to be prepared to invest time in unknotting the stressful patterns that keep us all too awake. My work is to help educate people with programs tailored to their needs that they can use to help bring back sleep. This includes practical methods of alleviating stress some of which is yoga based. In private work I would also provide a listening ear where requested.

The workshop is designed to take us through an overview of the kind of work that is available to help the insomniac and includes some practical explorations. It includes something of modern sleep science and the physiology of sleep which are valuable resources. Insomnia therapy can be divided into three parts. Firstly, there is usually an initial reason why sleep got to where it is. This generally needs to be met and integrated at some point. Secondly is sleep management, which is surveying on an on-going basis the relationship of our lifestyle to sleep and introducing change where necessary. Thirdly are the practices designed to calm the nervous system including the ways in which we might soften the fears and anxieties that are generally concurrent with sleeplessness.

Insomnia needn’t be a permanent state of affairs, but it does take time for positive change to take effect. My own involvement with this area of therapy has clearly demonstrated that the restoration of sleep really does happen. The workshop will include time for questions and some conversation.

Friday 11th October >> The Day of the Deadbeats 10 @ Tap Social Movement

19:30 – 23:00

We’re taking The Day of the Deadbeats out on the road to the magnificent Tap Social Movement on Friday the 11th October and y’all should come along! It’s been a beautiful road over these last 2 years and when we look back over the quality and talent we have had grace the doors of this special evening we are astounded. Thank you to everyone who has played and come along.

To celebrate we have the very first crew who stepped out with us – our comrades-in-arms and masters of the musical dark, the very wonderful The Ragged Charms. With original songs that sound like you’ve known them all your life the Charms embrace a cornucopia of musical delights. Mixing up hard driving blues with a promiscuity of influences from punk to bossa nova, their music is at once timeless and contemporary. 2nd up and as the night closes in, we have the blistering rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll of the stunningly sexy The Long Insiders. Summoning the spirits of early Elvis, Link Wray and Dick Dale, these boys will chill your bones with a hint of voodoo, a touch of the ghoulish and a lot of vintage guitar. Loud, dark, fun and not for the fainthearted. The Long Insiders are self generated, like b-movie slime – holy moly Oxford – you ready for them? Us Deadbeats will then close the evening with some sweet soul music and Rock and Roll with songs from our new EP ‘Bring out your Deadbeats’

As always the night is free – its all about the music and making a night to never forget. Our amazing hosts at Tap Social Movement were founded in 2016, and grew out of a passion for good beer and social justice. A craft brewery which provides training courses for people serving prison sentences, offering courses in brewing and business start-up, and providing one-on-one support in securing permanent employment to assist in effective rehabilitation. Plus beautiful food vendor for the night is Sri-Licious – Sri Lankan Street Food – quite simply divine grub.

We hope to see new and old faces alike so please join us for a for a huge delicious helping of country, soul and rock and roll and to celebrate number 10 out on the road.

― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Saturday 12th October 2019 >> Yoga Nidra @ Turl Street Kitchen – £20

18:30 – 20:00

Join Laura for a nourishing & restorative Yoga Nidra practice.

Yoga Nidra is an incredibly profound and transformative practice. By creating a warm, cosy and safe space, students are able to nestle into a place of comfort and rest, where they are able to simply receive. Yoga nidra is a practice that guides awareness through the sensations of the body, the movements of the breath and into a state of deep rest. Experiences are unique to the individual as they travel through their own journeys within, but frequently report feelings of rejuvenation, warmth and a sense of being held. The nourishing and nurturing qualities of Yoga Nidra are incredibly supportive and all are welcome.

This workshop is £20.
