A Workshop to Harvest our Ground of Being with Joanne King

'In contrast to our frenetic, saturated lives, the earth offers a calming stillness.The patience of nature enjoys the ease of trust and hope. There is something in our clay nature that needs to continually experience this ancient, outer ease of the world. It helps us remember who we are and why we are here." John O Donohue

Join Jo at the powerful time of the Celtic Harvest festival, Lughnasa for a day of grounding yoga accompanied by the words and philosophy of the great Irish poet and mystic, John O Donohue. Our ancestral Celts believed that these festival times were a portal in our calendar to set deep intention and harvest the fruits. Join us for a rich earthing movement practise weaving breathwork and meditation to guide you safely home.

Mindfulness in motion with Anna Taylor

Mindfulness in motion with Anna Taylor

Mindfulness invites us to bring our full awareness to our present moment experience - opening up to ourselves with a gentle, loving attention. Through cultivating qualities such as compassion, curiosity, acceptance and non-striving we learn to explore our experience as we find it, rather than falling into our habitual patterns and stories. 

Whilst we often consider mindfulness in the context of sitting meditation, in truth it expands out to every aspect of our lives. This workshop will explore how embodying these qualities can enhance our yoga practice. Through a slow, flowing practice and moments of stillness we will cultivate a listening presence to our moment-by-moment experience so that we can take the insights we gain to support our lives off the mat.

Cost: £30.00

Therapeutic Yoga for Stress and Fatigue with Anna Taylor

Stress affects us all at points in our lives. Whilst short bursts of stress can be necessary to stimulate and activate us, operating in this mode over long periods of time simply depletes us. When suffering with stress we can feel a huge tiredness in our bodies but spinning activity in our minds which make the rest that we crave hard to access. This workshop will explore what happens in our bodies when we get stressed and yoga tools that we can reach for to restore a sense of calm and access deep rest. The session will incorporate the gentle, but powerful 'pawanmuktasana' joint-releasing series which will ease tension from tip to toe, allowing energy to flow freely but calmly through the body again. Once the body has found some ease we will drop into restorative stillness to soak up deep rest. Open al all. No experience of yoga necessary.

Tender care and rest is always a good idea to support the adjustments of our Circadian Rythym and our bodies as they begin to reawaken. These transitional phases between seasons offer us an opportunity for reflection, a brief pause to go inward and think about what seeds you will sow for the season ahead.  What and how would you like to grow this year? To accompany the inward nature of restorative practice, Leo will guide us on a vibrational sound journey, taking us deeper into our inner world and the vast space within. The body rested and supported will be ready to receive the healing of pure vibration and the deep nourishment of the breath. Together we will be carried into the Spring in harmony with our surroundings, and renewed like nature, ready to bloom.

Catching the Spiral: Managing Anxiety through Yoga with Naomi Annand

Yoga is a great way of reconnecting with your body. And it’s wonderful tool for people who are already anxious but might it be well used as a way of preventing, not merely managing our anxiety? What if we get on our mat and use it to lament the day’s concerns before they start to spiral? Naomi’s workshop is all about catching thoughts before they run away from us, watching how and where the body holds patterns of tension and finding ways to deeply rest as a profound tool for self-care and self-compassion. In the session she will help you develop ideas for your own self-practice as well as understand a bit of the science behind restorative practices and why they are good for us.

Go with your Flow: Get in Tune with the Female Monthly and Life Cycles with Maren Weege

Women’s bodies are designed around cycles: both the monthly cycle as well as stages or cycles of life from menarche through childbearing age through menopause to post menopause. In this workshop, we are going to explore yoga practices, ideas and exercises that help us look and feel into how we can respect ourselves as cyclical beings in this linear world. We will tune into being in the flow of life in a woman’s body - in our beautifully individual ways – as a doorway to better health and a lifted sense of self-worth as a woman. The intention of this workshop is to make all women feel welcome and is of value for women of any age with or without a monthly cycle.

Restorative Yoga & Sound Harmonisation with Clive Fogelman

Clive and Tracie invite you to work with these two complimentary modalities by incorporating sound harmonisation techniques alongside the beneficial and restorative effects of yoga. These two modalities, in combination, allow us to really embody sound and movement to create a true harmonising of the body & mind. Yoga Teacher Clive Fogelman and Tama Do Vibrational Sound Teacher Tracie Storey have harmonised their techniques to offer you this unique class. Restorative yoga cultivates the practise of acceptance and letting go. It is an effortless and gentle practise harnessing healing, inner calm and replenishment. By introducing the element of sound into the space we open up a new field of possibilities and a deeper awareness. The acoustic sounds works with your body on a vibrational and cellular level, encouraging a deeper more profound release from your physical and energetic body. The sound stimulates a clearing in your auric field allowing you to literally feel lighter whilst the overtones allow you to tune yourself back to your natural balance. The workshop will also include guided meditations, visualisations and poetry.You will leave the session feeling replenished and more in harmony with your own true inner nature, in a clearer, calmer and happier space. The perfect way to start the week.

Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself with Naomi Annand

‘If you can think of times in your life that you’ve treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings. The ability to do that with ourselves. To treat ourselves the way we would treat a really good, precious friend. Or a tiny child of ours that we absolutely loved more than life itself. And I think it’s probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we’re here for is to learn how to do this’ David Foster Wallace

New year, same you! Time to befriend yourself with some heart opening practice and physically enlivening flow. Using mindfulness meditation techniques and yoga asana, this workshop will be an opportunity to meet yourself where you are and where you might be. All levels welcome.

The pelvic floor is an elemental support structure in our bodies both physiologically and energetically. We can’t see it and it is kind of taboo to talk about it, so it’s very common not to have a relationship with this part of our anatomy. In this workshop, we will explore the pelvic floor through yogic practices from yoga nidra to physical exercises and breath work. With her in-depth experience in teaching pregnancy and postnatal yoga, Maren will take a light-hearted approach to the topic and leave you feeling recharged, empowered, connected with yourself and the group. This workshop is valuable for women of any age.

An upside down look at intention setting and inversions. with Katrina Kurdy

Yoga Sutras 1.12-1.16 talk about practice and non-attachment. To maintain steadiness toward our highest life we must put consistent effort in our practices that take us there (1.13). I love this set of yoga sutras, and we’ll apply them to this new year workshop. We’ll use pranayama, asana and meditation to help us find greater clarity to set intentions that are meaningful and lasting for the New Year. We will also break down some difficult poses (looking at the family of upside down inversions such as handstand and headstand) so that we can shift our perspective in the way we work toward them. In the end we’ll circle back and have a fun ceremony to release our intentions into the world. This will be a strong workshop, but you don’t need to be able to do any of these inversions to attend.
