Hygge

Sunday 22nd March 1500 – 1700

With spring on its way we take our final foray into all things cosy. We like to reflect the seasons with our yoga practice and have planned a winter season of the most delicious Hygge Yoga sessions to sustain you through the colder months. Hygge – pronounced Hue-geh – is a Danish word that encompasses all things snug and cosy. Think woolly jumpers, knitted socks, soft blankets and the smell of spice and warm gingerbread. Join us this winter to explore Hygge Yoga and the art of cherishing yourself on and off the mat.

Allow Christine and Bel to lead you through a nourishing two hour practice with elements of gentle flow, deepening yin, releasing restorative and meditation. Each session will end with long and luxurious Savasana. Our snug studio is the perfect place to explore connection, soothing rituals and the simple pleasures of moving the body whilst stilling the mind.

Growing Compassion: An introduction to Jivamukti

Sunday April 26th 1115 – 1245

With Sharon Price. You’ve probably heard of Jivamukti – it’s the Method of Yoga developed by Sharon Gannon and David Life and popularised in the 1980s in North America. It is often known as the yoga of choice for celebrities and has some rather well-known practitioners such as Madonna, Gweneth Paltrow and Sting (but don’t let that put you off!)

Jivamuki is a combination of physical, spiritual and ethical practices and is often noted for being strongly connected to social activism and environmentalism.
According to the founders: ” Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, … states that asana should be sthira (steady) and sukham (joyful) … [asana] becomes more than mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility; it becomes a way to improve one’s relationship to all others and thus lead to enlightenment – the dissolution of the sense of separateness, the realization of the oneness of being, the discovery of lasting happiness.”

Want to understand how ASANA can help you develop connection with others? Join us for 2 and half hours of exploration of this style of Yoga favoured by so many.

Partner Workshop : Therapeutic Yoga Massage

April 19th (Sunday) 14:00-16:00

Grab your friend/sister/brother/mum/partner and join us for an afternoon of blissful therapeutic Yoga Massage.  Let Alli guide you through the key principles of giving and receiving this absolute marvel of a massage. Connect on a deeper level with both yourself and your partner as you work together to release the body and emotional blockages.

What is Therapeutic Yoga Massage?

Rhythmical pressing, rocking and gentle joint manipulations based on yoga Asana, are used to release physical blockages and energetic blockages. Awareness of one’s body is increased, as is the flow of energy and vitality through the body. Stress levels are decreased, physical pain is decreased, greater joint mobility is achieved. With this comes greater physical balance, and, ultimately, balance of the mind.

One ticket for 2 people.

YOUR’E JUST OVER THINKING IT, it’s all in your head, you’ll be fine….its likely people said these words to you, and despite being well intentioned, have ended up making you feel MORE isolated,  MORE helpless and MORE anxious.
Anxiety is difficult to explain to someone who hasn’t experienced it first hand – it saps your sense of control, robs you of pleasure and leaves you physically and emotionally drained. So many of you work tirelessly on a daily basis to navigate your anxiety and believe yoga can give you a road map to do so.
Physical yoga poses, simple meditations and breathing pracrices are some the most effective self-care strategies to regulate the stress response and rebalance the nervous system.
Our Yoga for Anxiety Workshop, will take you on a journey to explore yoga as a powerful tool to find the breath, balance nervous system, soothe the mind and develop the self regulation response.
All levels and experience welcome.
Suitable for absolute beginners.
