Workshops

Each month we offer extended classes and workshops that give you an opportunity to go deeper in to the parts of your practice that are most compelling, demanding and fulfilling.

Our workshop content is designed with breadth in mind, we’ll cover a wide range of somatic and theoretical matters from how to use yoga to help manage mental health challenges to working towards a stronger physical practice.

Building a Confident Headstand Practice
Vanessa Joy

During this workshop we’ll practice some deep yin to open the body and move through some active, spirited physical sequences that’ll identify and engage the muscle groups that we need to support us when we’re upside down in a headstand.

We’ll sense, recognise and familiarise ourselves with the attitudes and reactions we apply to our practice when playing with challenging asanas. Vanessa will help you break down the process of controlling your ascent to tripod and supported headstand so that you can feel more comfortable and confident about approaching it in a regular class environment.

Birthing Workshop
Amanda Walker

A unique opportunity for mothers-to-be and their birthing partners to learn useful breathing, movement and massage techniques, each one designed to support you through every stage of labour. Amanda, an exceptionally experienced yoga practitioner with special interest and expertise in pre and post natal work, will guide you both through ways in which to conserve energy, relax and regulate during the birth. Prepare and equip yourself with the tools you need to experience as much comfort and ease as possible during your labour.

Follow-up notes from the session will be provided so that you can practice the techniques together in the lead up to delivery, a positive way to connect and work together as birth mother and birthing partner.

All are welcome (from week 13 of pregnancy onwards) and no previous experience of yoga is necessary for either participant.

Testament to the value of this work: the words of a past participant “It is without doubt that all the yoga and breath work helped me through and made for a calm birth and consequently a very calm little girl – so thank you.”

£30 per couple

Yoga for Freedom + Play
Barbara Antonino

Give yourself some time to play with, explore and experience yoga in your body in a brand new way during this liberating afternoon of mobility inspired movement. Babs will guide you to move from your bones strongly but softly, you’ll be encouraged to let go of rigidity and gripping and instead seek fluidity, expansion and light.

This open level extended practice will ask you to feel beyond the familiar and to shake off your fixed understanding of what yoga expects of you, you’ll learn to work with the body, not against it.

All levels of experience, as always, are welcome.

Move, Write, Rest
Clare Waters

Just as the mindful movement of a yoga practice offers a powerful way of cultivating awareness and a greater connection to self, so does the act of putting pen to paper. Writing doesn’t have to be something that’s done for others to see, it can be a practice solely for you; to reflect and reframe. Releasing the concerns and ideas that are swirling around in your mind onto a page can provide a different perspective, a deeper understanding and clarity, turning up to the page, just like turning up to a yoga mat, is a way of opening up a dialogue with yourself.

This ‘Move, Write, Rest’ workshop will begin with an embodied movement practice so that you can dive in, stir up and shake out before sitting down to explore some free writing and journaling practices. The session will end with an extended relaxation to let the dust from the day settle.

You don’t need to have any writing or movement experience – just bring along a notepad and a pen.
