Embracing Stillness with Tanya Cruz

Embracing Stillness with Tanya Cruz

Sunday 18th February

6pm to 8pm

£30

Tanya invites you to join an evening dedicated to embracing our inner calm. In a world filled with busyness and chaos, where we juggle numerous responsibilities, it’s crucial to grant ourselves moments of pause, seeking stillness and silence. Engaging in restorative practices enables us to gain clarity, reconnect with our authentic selves, and foster healing. Often, it’s only when we intentionally carve out time for silence that we recognize its profound necessity. Amidst the rapid pace of life, it’s invaluable to take a step back, inhale deeply, observe our surroundings, and cultivate gratitude.

Working through a grounding restorative practice, meditation, breathwork, somatics, yin, and closing with a beautiful yoga nidra, embracing our stillness.

“Silence and stillness have their virtues. Inner stillness is the key to outer strength”

Path to the Self: Part 1 with Philippa Bermingham

Path to the Self: Part 1 with Philippa Bermingham

Sunday 25th February

6pm to 8pm

 

Throughout this series of workshops, we will delve into getting to know ourselves on a deeper level. Within the yoga toolbox, lies a valuable teaching of the Koshas, which represent the different layers of the human experience. 

In Path to the Self: Part 1, we will connect to the outermost, physical layer. If you ever feel caught up in the mind, disconnected from the physical body, or tensions in the body, this workshop is for you. By dropping into the body, we can start to listen to what it’s trying to tell us. This can help us to build a balanced and joyful life. 

Through a Yang to Yin practice and breathing exercises, we will create balance in the body and mind. With essential oils and a dynamic playlist, we will evoke the senses. Through Yoga Nidra, we will release physical and mental tensions. 

 “I use the body to discipline the mind and to reach the soul. Indeed I often say, body is the bow, asana (poses) the arrow, and soul is the target.” 

 — B.K.S Iyengar

An Intro to Yoga Nidra: The Practice of Deep Rest with Emma Groome

An Intro to Yoga Nidra: The Practice of Deep Rest with Emma Groome

Sunday 3rd March

6pm to 8pm

Join Emma for an introduction to yoga Nidra, also known as yoga sleep. Contrary to the name, the goal here isn’t to doze off (sorry!). Instead, yoga Nidra, in its modern form, leads you into a state of deep relaxation and has numerous physical, mental, and emotional benefits associated with it, including improved sleep, physical relaxation, stress reduction, enhanced creativity and learning, and increased self-awareness.

Curious to give it a go or looking to deepen your understanding if you’ve tried it before? Either way, this workshop is designed for you.

In the first part, Emma will:

  • Explain what yoga nidra is (and what it isn’t)
  • Provide an overview of the technique and the 8 stages of yoga Nidra
  • Explore the benefits
  • Share top tips for getting the most out of your yoga Nidra practice.

In the second part, Emma will guide you through a yoga Nidra practice, incorporating some gentle physical movement beforehand, so you can experience the magic of yoga Nidra for yourself.

What do you wear? Wear comfortable, relaxed clothes that will enable gentle movement and keep you warm (layers and socks are a great idea).

What do you need to bring? The studio has mats and bolsters available, but you’re welcome to bring your own. You can practice either lying down or seated so bring a blanket that you can use for comfort or to wrap around you as well. If you use a yoga eye pillow, you can bring that too (some will be available at the studio).

Mastering the Headstand with Tanya Cruz

Mastering the Headstand with Tanya Cruz

Saturday 9th March

1.30pm to 3.30pm

Mastering the headstand requires no great strength. It is largely a matter of conquering fear and believing you can do it. 

The headstand (sirshasana in Sanskrit) is also called the king of asanas as the posture has so many benefits for your body and mind. By reversing the normal effects of gravity, it rests the heart, aids circulation, and relieves pressure on the lower back. Headstand practice helps to prevent back problems and improves memory and concentration. Inverting the body also deepens the breath, bringing a fresh supply of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. 

 “Change the mind, and you can change the body.” – Swami Sivananda

The session is aimed at children between 4 yrs and 12 yrs and their parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles/carers etc.

Celebrating Spring Equinox with Sian Bradbury

Celebrating Spring Equinox with Sian Bradbury

Sunday 24th March

6pm to 8pm

£30

The March equinox marks the day when day and night are the same length all over the world and the change of seasons as we celebrate the beginning of spring. This is the season of renewal and as the world transitions, so does our yoga practice. Setting intentions during the equinox becomes a contemplative exercise, reflecting on areas of imbalance in our lives. By letting go of what no longer serves us, to make space for new growth and positive change.

During this workshop we will open our bodies and awaken our senses.  Yoga, as a practice of balance and harmony, aligns seamlessly with the themes of the equinox and the movements we will take around our mat will deepen our sense of inner and outer balance.

Breathwork and meditation are integral components in attuning with the energy of the equinox and we will focus on renewal and letting go to amplify the transformative energy of the spring season.

In essence, the spring equinox invites us to synchronize our practice with the natural rhythms of the Earth. It is a reminder that, like nature, our journey is one of continual transformation and interconnectedness.
