Yin and Yoga Nidra - £25

This 90 minute session will take place in the Tipi, the space cosy and warm, lavender eye bags at the ready. The sound of birds singing outside and Ebony's soothing tones will fill the Tipi.

60 minutes of Yin yoga will prepare you physically and mentally for the later stage of meditation, slowing the body and the mind as you explore the body from deep within. Followed with a 2 minute break to refresh - please bring a water bottle and snack to refuel, and finally 30 minutes of lying Savasana with warm blankets and cushions to cocoon you as you are guided through your Yoga Nidra practice. You can of course bring your own blankets and pillows if you wish.

The workshop is suitable for anyone of any yoga experience, regardless of age, fitness level, health or knowledge. All are welcome - any queries let me know.

More about the yoga:

Yin Yoga - Yin yoga involves long held poses (3-6 minutes), to move away from the elastic muscle tissue and into the connective tissues of he joint capsules and ligaments. These tissues that normally are protected by about muscles in flow styles of yoga, are looking for a stress to encourage them to lengthen and strengthen. Yin poses tend to be seated to allow space to exploreboth body and mind and the time of poses gives mini meditation blocks to really focus on being mindful.

Yin is suitable for all levels and is a great addition to your practices, especially if you are a runner or cyclist, or even just a full on Ashtangi yogi. The simple postures of of Yin mean that you will not get a (physical) sweat on but simple doesn't mean easy, so expect to mentally get your sweat on.

Yoga Nidra - Yoga Nidra translates from Sanskirt as yoga sleep, it is said that 1 hour of this deep relaxation is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep. This is a very deep, restful state that allows for both the body and the mind to fully release. Yoga Nidra is the state of mind before unconciousness - by reaching this state, your mind clears, stress and anxiety levels reduce along with blood pressure and heart rate. Your body relaxes and your brain is given the chance to build new neuron pathways - Yoga Nidra aids in helping with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, a fast western life and stress - to name a few. Relax, unwind and enter the pure tranquility of Yoga Nidra.

Yoga for Runners - £15

If you run you have more than likely suffered the down side - twinged muscles, ankles that give way, Sciatica, dodgy knees, tight hamstrings and thighs. But you love the up side, and that's why you plod on! You enjoy the cardiovascular benefits, the strength, freedom and stamina. Or perhaps you find it therapeutic. Whether you wish to improve your running style or nurse/prevent an injury this workshop is sure to help you out.

Exploring poses which will help ease out any injuries caused by running and work into tight areas such as ankles, hamstrings, hip flexors, calves and thighs before moving on to a more dynamic 'flow' to develop a more efficient breathing style to incorporate into your runs. Slowing down again we will look into lengthening thespine, often compressed by running, and twisting it also as runners often only exercise in the sagittal plane (vertical) and opening the chest again to expand the breaths.

The workshop is suitable for anyone who does not have any serious injuries, broken bones and the like, and runs regularly.

Limited spaces available, book now via email.

Hip Opening Workshop - £20

This workshop is best paired with the August 10th Heart Opening Workshop for full benefits.

It is said that we store emotion in our hips, specifically trauma, and while we can't scientifically pin down a correlation between tightness in the hips and our emotions, we do know that when we are in stressful situations (“fight or flight” occurrences), we engage our emotional muscles, and we tighten our hips.

The tighter our hips, the tighter the lower back; with tension amassing in these regions, the Psoas is prone to shortening, making it harder to walk, sit, stand, and practice yoga. Our lifestyle choices of office work, sitting too much, attending the gym without stretching prior all result in hip flexor compression and shortening leading to hip, knee and lower back pain and problems. Running and cycling can also have similar impacts on the hips. Learning to open your hips safely is the prime goal of this workshop – we will use seated, supine and standing postures to increase range of movement, muscle, joint and ligament strength and flexibility.

This workshop will contain yoga asana that will help open and release your hips, through slow yoga and yin yoga we will slowly but surely delve into the connective tissue and safely increase flexibility.

Please wear comfortable yoga clothing, bring props such as bolsters, blocks and straps if you wish. Bring a water bottle with you and if you don’t have your own yoga mat, one will be provided for you.

Price: £20
Time: 4pm-5:30pm

Each chakra is associated with particular functions within the body and with specific life issues and the way we handle them, both inside ourselves and in our interactions with the world. Chakras become blocked by stress and holding on to negative emotions.

Practising yoga poses that correspond to each chakra can release these blockages and clear the path to feeling whole, becoming your true self and connecting to your higher consciousness. Lean to come into balance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
