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

Pause, Breathe and Move Forward

We live in frenetic and demanding times, especially so at the start of a new year when dreams, aspirations and goals drive us to shake our lives up and make changes. Yet the natural order of things in winter is to slow down, turn inward and replenish. Anxiety and stress levels rise as we battle to meet the demands of expectation and the harshness of January weather.

 

Balance the desire to create new beginnings with the pauses to reflect and appreciate what we really value in life.

Join me for this all levels evening practice of pausing to breathe and take stock.  Learn tips and practices to help manage anxiety and stress and their manifestation in the body and mind. Leave with a greater sense of clarity of what is really important to you as you move forward into 2019.

 

All are welcome.

When: Friday 25 January 2019, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

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

Cost: £18
