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.

Befriend your Fascia

We are all fairly familiar with our bones and muscles…but often know little about our fascia.
 
Weighing in at around 60% of our bodys total weight, this amazing network of connective tissue, creates our internal form and structure. The whole body is touched and affected by this highly innervated tissue. When we suffer trauma and injury, have poor posture and movement patterns and even when we are under emotional stress, our fascia can become misaligned causing pain and restriction.
 
If you would like to know more and begin to befriend your fascia, join me for this all levels evening practice to discover, stretch and explore.
 
All are welcome.
 

When: Friday 12 July 2019, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

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

Cost: £20

Enjoy cooling heart centred practices, breathwork,meditation and nidra….. and consider how some of the philosophical teachings of yoga can help you avoid energy ‘burn out’.

All are welcome to join.
