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

Nourish – The Yin of Digestion

An evening of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

Autumn is a predominantly vata season where the elements of air and ether rise to the fore. This can sometimes leave us feeling a little unsettled in our digestion, and ungrounded in our thoughts. The change in foods we eat as it grows colder plus the blowiness and dampness of the  environment around us can lead to changes in the way we digest our food and thoughts.

Yin is a practice of gradual coaxing movement toward stillness which by its very nature encourages reflection and self enquiry. To support our digestion in its fullest sense, in this session we will begin to work with the stomach and spleen meridians.

This restful and quiet evening practice is 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 19 October 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

Sweet Spine of Mine

The spine is an amazing and intricate physical structure which literally provides us with backbone…bringing us strength,structure and the capability to move, dance and enjoy yoga. Yet it is often only when we are in pain that we pay attention to the spine.
There is also much more to reveal as we delve into the spine as an energetic structure enabling the movement of pranic energy through the channels of the nadis and the distribution centres of the chakras…..
If you are interested in exploring your spine as a body of energy as well as bones, joints and nerves….join me for this evening exploration of yoga, movement and meditation.
All are welcome. 

When: Friday 26 October 2018, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
