Upcoming classes / workshops

The workshops, what to expect:

A typical yoga session begins with 3 deep breaths with the hands in prayer position - to balance the left & right hemispheres of the brain. We then tune in with the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo) to centre us and to link student and teacher together in our practice.

Pranayam - a set of breathing exercises designed to purify the blood and integrate ourselves into our yoga practice

Warm ups - may be used depending on the Kriya and the weather!

Kriya - a kriya is a sequence of postures / breath / sound which flow together to induce a stable state in the body and mind

Meditation - typically this will be seated, with an eye and hand focus in order to bring the mind into a state of awareness

Yoga Nidra or 'Yogic Sleep' - is a period of relaxation to allow the body and mind to absorb the yoga practice, and to let go of any remaining stress.

We then tune out with a Mantra (Sat Nam) to end the session by awakening the soul.

Hip opening & Patience

Hip opening, and emotions go hand in hand! On an emotional level: I have heard some yoga teachers describing the hips as: ‘the emotional junk drawer of the body’.

Considering that so many of us have tight hips there is no wonder that we can explore the relationship between the tightness of the body and emotional discomfort.

The hips sit within the second chakra ‘Svadhisthana’ and contain a large amount of negative emotion- such as fear, guilt, and sadness. In this workshop we will be working on loosening up the hip joints and releasing deep set tension and emotion.

We will be completing a series of Kriya’s to open the lower back and hips and to rebalance the entire pelvis. We will be releasing tension, both physically and emotionally and finding our way towards patience. For when we practice with patient persistence, transformation can occur.

Shoulders & Liberation

It is often said that the ultimate goal of yoga is liberation.  But what does that mean? How do we become liberated?  And what are we being liberated from?  Sometimes the language of yoga can be intimidating and a little confusing! 

Within this 2.5 hr workshop we will be exploring liberation in relation to the shoulders and upper back.  We will be setting our sights on attaining freedom in the shoulder area, therefore pinning an abstract idea (liberation) on an attainable freedom (liberating the shoulder blades).  We will do this by following a series of physical kriyas focusing on the shoulder area and finishing with a beautiful meditation for liberation.

This workshop is suitable for those of us who have aches and pains in the shoulders / upper back, for those of us with poor posture, for those of us who wish to work on our own understanding of liberation through yoga and for those of us who spend too much time sitting or slouching.
