What is a workshop?

I hold regular (usually monthly) yoga workshops and occasional day workshops. The monthly workshops are generally 2 hours long and offer a great opportunity to explore a theme or aspect of our yoga practice in much greater depth. In addition to progressing in our asana (postures) I also offer varied teachings on yoga anatomy, philosophy, yogic myths and storytelling and areas of yoga which are not often covered in general classes such as mantra, mudra, meditation forms and yoga nidra. A really good way to expand your knowledge of yourself and your practice!

How to Book

Booking is essential for all workshops. I respectfully ask for advance payment to reserve your place. Please book and make full payment in advance (cash, cheque, bank transferor paypal where button is shown alongside event).

I cannot accept cancellations from one week before the workshop without payment. If you cancel earlier than the week, a 50% refund will be made.

Upcoming Workshops and Courses

Aligning with the Rhythms of Spring

As the kapha time of earth and water creeps slowly towards the pitta time of fire and water, align yourself with the natural rhythms of seasonal change.

Working steadily to build the intensity of the practice, we will create heat and movement to help release some of the congestion and stagnation of winter. Rise to a state of joyful stability with lightness and brightness and let your intention of easy renewal soothe you towards savasana and onwards to a happy spring!

All are welcome.

When: Friday 20 April  2018, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Where: Thomas Helwys Baptist Church, Lenton, Nottingham, NG7 1SJ.

Cost: £18

Arrive, Be, Wait and See – An Evening of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Join me at the beautiful Jasmine Trust for this Friday ‘pop up’ yoga session.

As a nation we are chronically fatigued. Life is busy with multiple and complex demands and it is so important that we care for and nourish ourselves with practices like yoga.All that is required in a yin yoga practice is that you give yourself the gift of space and time to simply be. The 3 tattvas or principles of a yin practice are simply to arrive into the shape or posture, exist there with awareness and interest and finally observe what arises without judgement.

This session is sure to be an antidote to the busy business of everyday living. The practice will be followed by a relaxing yoga nidra  to welcome in a sense of joy and well being ( nidra is a guided deep relaxation)

Grab the bolsters, blankets and eye bags and settle in…

Yin Yoga is a delicious, leisurely practice. Focusing on longer holds of postures to experience a greater depth of stretch and promote the flow of energy through the fascia of the body and the meridian pathways serving the organs.

This session is a mainly floor based practice and will be suitable for those with a reasonable level of movement.

When: Friday 4 May 2018, 6.15 – 8.15pm
Where: Jasmine Trust Yoga Centre, Babworth, Retford, DN22 8EW
Cost: £18
Pre-payment on booking is essential as places are limited. Book via Jasmine Trust linked here JT events
