Weekend Wind-Down Yin Yoga

Fri 8th Mar, 2019
Fri 26th Apr, 2019

Soothe your body, mind and soul at the end of the week with a mindful, nurturing yoga practice.
Release tension, relieve stress, find solace from the hectic pace of modern life and the pressures or expectations of work, family and social commitments.

This class is suitable for everyone, regardless of experience. We will take things slowly and mindfully, using gentle movements to connect to our breath and come into our bodies. The practice leads on to restorative yin yoga where we use longer holds in passive postures to allow for deep, gradual release at the connective tissue level. This gives time and space for reflection, contemplation and cultivates receptivity while being deeply calming and rejuvenating.

Practice will always include breath-work to soothe the mind and ease you into awareness. We close with savasana, total relaxation which may be guided or held in nurturing quiet, to access a state of deep, nourishing rest.

Suitable for: Everyone and anyone. Students who are new to yoga will find Yin a gentle enough style to follow along, and those with more yoga experience can go deeper into the mental, subtle and meditative aspects of the practice.

An evening of luscious relaxation, suitable for all, everyone welcome!

Breath practices to soften the edges. Gentle movement and restorative yoga to get out of your head and into your body, allowing your system to release tension and settle into comfortable rest.

We follow with a deliciously long Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) – a potent meditative guided relaxation practice for healing, insight, and empowerment. It’s a state of consciousness in which we are invited to re-encounter the essential truth of who we really are. Yoga nidra provides us with the opportunity to experience deep freedom and deeply nourishing rest. It welcomes us all home to ourselves. .

Saturday / Sunday Flow Yoga

Sat 16th Mar, 2019
Sat 6th Apr, 2019

A delicious, energising morning flow yoga class to help you start your weekend feeling great. There’s no rush in this 90 minute class. We find spaciousness in our bodies, minds and breath which in turn can help you find spaciousness in your life. We explore breathwork (pranayama) to calm and revitalise. As we move we gradually build heat and open our bodies where they may feel stuck or closed off.

There’s time to break down some more challenging postures giving you time to play with something new or work your edge. And of course there’s time to slow down and sink in deep, before final relaxation (savasana).

Suitable for: Anyone with some yoga experience or a reasonable level of body awareness and fitness. Great for students who have been practicing yoga for some time.

Join Anne and Claire for an extra special afternoon of luscious relaxation, restoration and renewal.  This session is suitable for all, no yoga experience is necessary – absolutely everyone welcome.

Anne will lead your through a slow paced restorative yoga practice, getting comfortable in long held floor based postures, supported by props and the gentle rhythm of breath.  The practice will be accompanied by Claire who will create a unique and exquisite alchemy crystal bowl sound bath.  Allow yourself to lie back and receive, to settle more deeply into yourself as you are softly enveloped in beautiful sound, receiving the healing, transformative vibrations and harmonising energy of the quartz crystal bowls.  This potent combination allows your system to gradually dissolve tension and create space for you to be and feel just as you are.  Experience a gentle release from the state of constant thinking and doing, and drop into a more receptive, peaceful state of feeling and being.  As the body, mind and nervous system are all supported, and your stress response is reduced your whole system can heal, deeply rest, restore and renew.  Whether this opens up new inspiration and fresh perspectives, or simply leaves you feeling nourished, rebalanced and rested this is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Fri 22nd Mar, 2019 - Sun 24th Mar, 2019
