JANUARY 2019

  • Yoga Workshop with Gaby Porter – Living and moving with ease: freeing the neck, shoulders and upper body – Saturday 12 January 10am-1pm Sitting for long periods at computers or driving, focusing on tiny smartphone screens, habits of ‘bracing’ ourselves – all these can lead to tension and pain in our neck, shoulders and upper body. This workshop brings together Hanna somatics and yoga. The workshops are suitable for you if you have at least three months’ yoga practice or an equivalent physical practice. £35 or £30 concession. Please contact Gaby for more information and to reserve a place: yoga@gabyporter.co.uk
  • Feldenkrais Workshop with Anne Robertson – Feldenkrais Facelift – Saturday 12 January 2-5pm We take some of the most obvious ways that our facial expressions relate to our emotions for granted, but there are many subtle ways that the movement or lack of movement of our lips, tongue, jaw, neck and eyes connect to our posture, breathing and sense of wellbeing, to our sense of self and to our relationship with others. In this workshop you will explore and update your facial habits, leaving you feeling refreshed and de-stressed. These workshops take place in Bodywise yoga studio and cost £30 or £25 concession. Please book with Anne annerobbo@talktalk.net tel: 07951728862. More information about what Feldenkrais is – Feldenkrais Method

  • Yin/Restorative Yoga Workshop with Manjunaga – Saturday 16 February 2-5pm Yin yoga is a deeply relaxing, restorative approach to practice. Through longer held postures, it aims to relax our musculature and work on the connective tissues, also stimulating our subtle energy systems within the body. Yin yoga is a perfect balance to a more ‘yang’ style dynamic practice, and offers deep peace within the stresses of a busy urban life. For more information: www.manjunaga.com.

Yoga & Movement Teachers

All our Teachers are fully trained with a high degree of continued professional development. Find out more about the Yoga Teachers and Movement Teachers.

What kind of Yoga?

We teach dynamic flow sequences harmonising breath and movement which build strength, vitality and fluidity. This is balanced by a quiet yin style yoga practice which cultivates relaxation and stillness. We limit class size to optimise personal attention. In a yoga class you will learn about the core movement principles that underpin the practice of yoga and experience how these develop strength in the body.
