Winter Solstice Restorative workshop with Divya Kohli

Date: Sunday, 16th December
Time: 3-5.30pm
Price: £30

Heading into mid winter, this is a practice to both celebrate and prepare for the longest night of the year.

We will turn in and engage in deep long held and supportive postures in the restorative style, and then awaken from the physical to the deeper consciousness through a guided meditation. Physically the body will be invited to release tension and relax muscles, tissues and joints. While in the postures, guidance will be given on how to navigate distraction and discomfort.

The mind and body settled, meditation can be accessed and experienced more optimally.

Suitable for everyone (aged 18 plus): men, women, beginners and more experienced practitioners.

Gong bath with Leo Cosendai

Date: Saturday, 12th December
Time: 6.30-8pm
Price: £25

Gong meditation is a powerful sonic practice. Gongs have been used as shamanic tools and celebratory instruments for thousands of years, and are truly part of the tradition that is sound healing, which uses techniques such as chanting, drums, and Tibetan bowls to name a few.

The gong produces harmonic and dissonant tones which give you the opportunity to experience altered states of consciousness, where the mind is aligned with the body. From being exposed to the tones of the gongs you may notice a major improvement in the quality of your sleep, a better ability to cope with stress, and a sense of familiarity with stillness and contentment.

”Leo’s treatments are equally transformational and healing. His work through sound is remarkable.” – Wendy Mandy (Shaman, acupuncturist, counsellor)

Leo is a Prana Kriya Yoga teacher and a ”London’s foremost kundalini gong master” (The Times, 2016), and a composer born in Switzerland.

Handstands workshop with Sylvia Garcia

Date: Sunday, 13th January
Time: 2.45-5.45pm
Price: £35

In this workshop we will be looking at the foundations of handstand and its practical application to a yoga flow. We will be coming at the handstand alignment from an acrobatic perspective in order to find a straight line that is not only more functional for transitions but much safer for the shoulder girdle than the more commonly seen yoga handstand alignment.

Sylvia taught herself how to stand on her hands over many years but really saw a huge change in her inversion practice when she started training it acrobatically. In this workshop she will share tips on how to improve your line, find balance and look at some of the transitions we commonly see in flow yoga styles today such as Dharma and Rocket.

This workshop is suitable for all levels. Whether you have never attempted a handstand before and are looking to start or have a strong practice and want to improve Sylvia will find something appropriate and suitable for you to play with.

Come along to soak up the knowledge, enjoy the warm atmosphere, and share your experiences.

Yintentions and pranayama: a New Year workshop with Nicola Croucher

Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019
Time: 6-8.30pm
Price: £30

A solid foundation of deeply nourishing Yin yoga, pranayama, meditation and focused intention. This workshop takes place at the end of January so you may well be reaffirming your intentions from the very start of the year to help you stay on track, focused and aligned, or setting a completely new sankalpa (intention).

The practice of Yin yoga is a slow moving meditation on the more subtle elements of the body: connective tissues, fascia, organs, emotions, psychological processes, subtle energy body. It is an intuitive, explorative, therapeutic meditation to nourish the body and calm the mind. The practice is entwined with ancient wisdom and knowledge from Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Daoist tradition.

Prana (“ki”, or “chi”) refers to a basic, universal, all-pervading life-force energy long recognised by Eastern thought, which is now being more fully appreciated and studied by Western science. Yoga practitioners over the centuries have found that by practicing pranayama, or yogic breathing, we can access this energy, and harness and utilise its power. Yogic breathing is thus a wonderful tool for good health, longevity, presence and a calm relaxed mind. We will finish with a beautiful guided third eye meditation, and gentle sound healing to align our intentions and make manifest our best year yet. Come and join Nicola for this beautiful workshop and tap into the power of prana.
