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 or bank transfer).

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.

Shed and Shine for Spring – An Evening of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Join me at the beautiful Jasmine Trust for this Friday ‘pop up’ yoga session.
As we begin to see and feel the very beginnings of Spring, our natural urge is to cleanse, slough off the heaviness and rise from our winter hibernation. In this session we will send some love to the liver and gallbladder to help support them in their work of filtering toxins and processing the fiery emotion of anger. The practice will be following by a relaxing yoga nidra (deep relaxation)
Grab the bolsters and blankets 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 flow of energy through the fascia of the body and the meridian pathways serving the organs.
This session is a floor based practice and will be suitable for those with a reasonable level of movement.
When: Friday 9 March 2018, 6.15 – 8.15pm
Where: Jasmine Trust Yoga Centre, Babworth, Retford, DN22 8EW
