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.

Turning Yin 

An evening of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

Join me for this late summer/ early autumn practice where our focus will be on turning inwards as the frenetic, yang energy of summer begins to slow down.

Yin is a practice of movement toward stillness which by its very nature encourages reflection and self enquiry. In preparation for the emergence of autumn we will begin to work with the lungs and large intestine meridians.

This restful and quiet evening practice will be an antidote to the busy business of everyday living and will be followed by a yoga nidra (deep relaxation).
Grab the bolsters and blankets and settle in.

All are welcome

When: Friday 14 September 2018, 6.15pm – 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
