DECEMBER 2019

  • Feldenkrais Workshop with Anne Robertson – Saturday 7 December 2-5pm – And breathe… There is no one correct way to breathe, rather it is important that our breathing is adaptive. When we have choices, awareness and the potential of movement unrestricted by habit, our system can make the adjustments required to serve our needs. This workshop will put you more in touch with and give you a better understanding of this vital function. These workshops take place in Bodywise yoga studio and cost £35 or £30 concession, each with a different focus of Feldenkrais. Book with Anne annerobbo@talktalk.net tel: 07951728862. More information about what Feldenkrais is – Feldenkrais Method

  • Resting Deeply Workshop with Padmadarshini – Saturday 21 December 2-5pm Winter Solstice Restorative Yoga Workshop. Open to everyone including complete beginners. In nature Winter is the slow season. Animal and plants rest up and conserve their energy awaiting the new life and creativity that comes with Spring. We too as humans can really benefit by honouring these cycles of activity and rest. So in this workshop we will rest. We will follow a sequence of restorative yoga poses that support calm, relaxation, a softening of body, heart and mind. £40 or £35 concession. Please book through Bodywise: 0161 833 2528 health@bodywisenaturalhealth.co.uk

Our Studio

We have a beautiful purpose designed studio here at Bodywise, a quiet oasis in the heart of Manchester city centre.

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.
