Relax, Rejuvenate & Rebalance
This candle lit restorative yoga class is a perfect way to unwind and close out your working week so you're fully recharged & ready for the weekend ahead. In restorative yoga, otherwise known as the art of relaxation, the body is fully supported by props in passive yoga poses to gently stretch, relax and open the body, adjusting the nervous system and resting the adrenal glands to melt away physical and mental tensions and promoting deep release, rest & relaxation in the mind and body. They also assist the body’s processes of healing injuries and recovering from illness by releasing tension that would otherwise impede recovery. Taking place in a calming setting of candlelight and soothing music, this yoga class is the ideal opportunity to take your mind off your busy life & indulge yourself.
Open to all ages & abilities - No experience necessary.

Bathing In Stillness
A Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra Workshop
Sunday 15th October | 11am - 12.30pm
Sunday 12th November | 11am - 1pm

Stacks Image 26866
A special Sunday workshop to indulge in the quiet and gentle practice of Yin Yoga and soak up the transformative power of Yoga Nidra.
Yin Yoga is a healing practice of long-held poses where muscles completely relax & surrender to allow us to access the deeper layers of the body. It works on releasing constrictions in the connective tissue, ligaments, and tendons that support the hips, pelvis and lower spine. It also stimulates & opens the energy meridians of the subtle body, often described as a “needleless acupuncture session” for the body!
This nurturing workshop will take you through a specific series of seated & supine poses. Aimed at improving joint mobility, cultivating flexibility and help you heal yourself by releasing deep seated tension, breaking up blockages and thus encouraging easier flow of energy around the body, moving you out of negative emotions. You’ll discover balance and find a deep peace in your body & mind.

After the physical part of the practice you will release yourself totally with a Yoga Nidra Meditation. Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep, takes you into a deep state of relaxation & ease which shifts the nervous system to a restorative and healing mode. It brings an incredible sense of calmness, quietness, and clarity.
Sooth, restore and relax deeply in this bliss bubbling Sunday yoga workshop.

Come and enjoy!

Pranayama & Meditation Workshop
with Rachel Woolhouse
Sunday 29th October | 2 - 4.30pm

Stacks Image 26987
Join Rachel for this 2.5 hour Sunday morning workshop, where you will use pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation to encourage introspection, stillness and an increased awareness of the connection between the body, mind and breathing process.

We will explore different meditation and reclining (lying down) pranayama techniques, allowing ourselves the time to enjoy their physical and mental effects. Each technique will be carefully guided to encourage you to awaken to your current experience of body and breath.

After our initial session of meditation and pranayama Rachel will guide you through a gentle sequence of active postures to reinvigorate your awareness of the body, and to allow for greater comfort in sitting meditation. This will be followed by gentle restorative postures to help you tap into a feeling of effortlessness.

From this place of effortlessness, we will move into our final period of pranayama and meditation, leading you towards deep inner stillness. Expect to feel uplifted, easeful and deeply relaxed.

This workshop is suitable for students of all levels. If you are not experienced at sitting meditation, that’s no problem, the periods of sitting will be short 20-30 minutes and you may change position when you need to. If you would prefer to sit on a chair that is also a perfectly good option but please mention this when booking.
