  • CANCELLED Yoga Workshop with Manjunaga – Saturday 21 March 2-5pm – Relaxing on the Earth: Yin/Restorative Yoga Yin yoga is a deeply relaxing, restorative approach to practice. It focuses on the feminine with passive, meditative qualities. 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. During the workshop we shall also have an opportunity to explore the deeply profound and relaxing practice of yoga nidra together. Leave feeling refreshed and restored.

  • Yoga Workshop with Christine Howitt – Saturday 28 March 10am-1pm – Freeing tension in neck, shoulders and upper body. PLEASE NOTE THIS WORKSHOP IS POSTPONED. IT WILL BE RUN ONLINE. It may not be a 3-hour workshop. The shoulders, neck and upper body are often areas where we hold a good deal of tension. This is often related to tension held through the thoracic and pelvic diaphragms. This workshop will explore how we can begin to let go of these holding patterns by enlisting the support of the heart and lungs and understanding the interplay of the diaphragms with these organs. For those who have 3 months yoga experience with Christine or equivalent. £40 or £35 concession. Please book through Bodywise: 0161 833 2528 health@bodywisenaturalhealth.co.uk

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.
