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).

Upcoming Workshops and Courses

Nourish your Reservoir

As winter beds in, hunker down, stay calm and self care. In this, the next of the organ body series, send some love to your kidneys… the complex little power packs which are thought to form the foundation of our being.

Kidney health underpins general well being and their association with the harsher season of winter can guide us to stay warm, move with ease and top up our reserves of fluid.

The manifestation of fluid in the body comes in many forms, yet how often do you really feel connected to your own internal flow? Winter with its darker days plus the yang activity of Christmas holidays can be an exceptionally challenging time, and can leave us feeling brittle in body and mind.

Stop for a while and re-balance with this session of yin and yang pre Christmas nourishment.

The session will include breathwork, meditation, yin and yang practices, and slow flowing explorations in yoga and relaxation. All are welcome …..

 

When: Friday 13 December 2019, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Where: St Andrews Church, Chestnut Grove, Nottingham, NG3 5AD.

Cost: £20

Nurture Your Flow

Our Friday pop up session this month will guide us in sending some love to the kidneys. These amazing organs help maintain the balance of all bodily fluids and are thought to form the foundation of our being.

Kidney health underpins general wellness.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are associated with the harsh season of winter. Our practice will be one of self nurture, being gentle with ourselves and cultivating ease of movement and flow within the breath, body and thought. Topping up our Jing… essence of being, serves us well at this time of year.

If you are feeling fragile or depleted as 2020 picks up pace…join me for this evening practice to reconnect to the gentleness of your natural flow.

The session will include breathwork, meditation, yin and restorative  practices, and slow flowing explorations in yoga and relaxation. All are welcome 

 

When: Friday 28 February 2020, 6.15pm – 8.15pm

Where: Jasmine Trust Yoga Centre, Babworth, Retford, DN228EW.

Cost: £20
