Yin Workshop

with Belinda and Claire

Saturday 28th July

12.30pm-3.30pm

In general, summer can be a good time to turn down the heat and intensity of your asana practice and spend extra time with Yin Yoga.
The heart sets our rhythm in life. When we are resistant to the movement of life we may experience feelings of emptiness and sadness. We can’t have a raging continuous fire nor can we have a flame that is near extinction, we need the flickering movement of flames to allow us to respond appropriately to the demands of living. The fire energy inside sparks us to come alive, to be open and to feel abundance. This flame allows us to become conscious of ourselves and others, to express love and gratitude and to become awake in our lives. This tiny spark of divine love residing in our hearts is what radiates out into the world as the light of our individual awareness.

Priced at £28, please book via reception.

Hips and Hams Workshop

With Dave Glover

Saturday 18th August 1-3pm

Do you struggle a little with flexibility in the hamstrings and hips?

You’re not alone! The majority of yoga students (Dave included!) initially struggle with flexibility or strength in the hips and hamstrings.

If touching your toes or sitting comfortably in lotus seems impossible, then this is the workshop for you!

Join Dave for an afternoon workshop and learn the anatomy and function of the hips and hamstrings, and why they can be a source of frustration in your practice. Learn drills and techniques from Dave’s own experience to safely open up the hips and lengthen the hamstrings, bringing lightness and ease to your practice.

Suitable for all levels of experience.  Priced at £20, please book via reception.

    Jivamukti Chakra Balance Workshop

with Emily Lacy

 

Saturday 8th September 2-4.30pm

In the yoga tradition the human body has seven main energy centres called chakras. When these energy centres are open and balanced, we feel well and can connect with others in positive and uplifting relationships. When our chakras are blocked, we may feel disconnected from ourselves and others, and struggle in our relationships.

In this innovative healing program we will explore the attributes of each of the seven energetic centres. You will be guided through a series of postures, affirmations and mantra chants to awaken and balance each of the seven chakras, finishing with pranayama and meditation.

The practice will instigate a sense of wholeness, peace and shift in perception to make way for discovering these inherent qualities.

“When chakras are blocked through injury, illness, or disconnection from others, we are blocked from being our best selves. Rooted in ancient teachings, Chakra Yoga is more relevant today than ever. At a time when many people feel disconnected from themselves and others, it can heal your body and free your heart to move into the future with joy.” Sharon Gannon

Priced at £25 please book via reception.
