Description

End your week and begin your weekend by letting go of whatever it is that may be holding you back with a reflective gentle pranayama and restorative practice followed by yoga nidra (yogic sleep). You will be lead through gentle restorative postures, pranayama (breathing) practices and meditation followed by a long yoga nidra (deep relaxation). You do not have to have practiced yoga to benefit from this class. You will learn to relax your mind and body, improve your breathing and be guided through a yoga nidra to help you feel restored and enhance your sleep.

The studio is fully equipped but should you wish to bring along a along a blanket and pillow please do, eye pillows provided should you wish to use. Be prepared for a good night's sleep following the deep relaxation. Many people forget or don't know how to relax their nervous system, relaxing in a conscious way is very different from sleeping, watching TV, reading a book. Many people spend their lives rushing around and their bodies are in a state of 'fight or flight' mode much of the time, which can elevate the stress hormone 'cortisol'. In this session we aim to reduce high levels of cortisol and let the Parasympathetic Nervous system to do it's job of maintaining 'Homeostasis' and relaxing your body/nervous system.

Time: 19:00-20:30

Price £9

Payable in advance and non refundable. Limited Spaces. These sessions are very popular and I usually have a wait list. Book early.

Level Suitable for all levels and no previous yoga practice necessary.

Monthly (Thursday)  'Yin and Restorative Yoga with Myofascial Release'

28 March

This class is a very nurturing practice and focuses on restorative and yin postures where you will stay in passive poses for approx 5 minutes to allow for deep gradual release of the connective tissue.

Postures are supported using various props e.g. bolsters, blocks, straps, ball. This gives time and space for reflection, contemplation and cultivates receptivity while being deeply calming and rejuvenating.

We will use breath practices (pranayama) to soothe our nervous systems and channel our energy where it is needed. With lots of seated and lying poses held for longer periods of time which will encourage you to melt and release any tension you may be holding onto. This is a deeply nourishing, revitalising and restful practice.

During the practice we will focus on releasing muscular tension by using appropriate props and the ‘Yumuna’ ball to release our connective tissue and fascia. This class compliments a Yang yoga practice and is suitable for those who may have injuries or health conditions and those who prefer a slower paced practice. But also good for those who are always rushing around and lead busy lives – this class will make you slow down (for a little while). The class includes breathing practices, meditation and relaxation and the postures themselves are very relaxing.

The studio is fully equipped but should you wish to bring along a along a blanket and pillow please do, eye pillows provided should you wish to use. Many people spend their lives rushing around and their bodies are in a state of 'fight or flight' mode much of the time, which can elevate the stress hormone 'cortisol'. In this session we aim to reduce high levels of cortisol and let the Parasympathetic Nervous system to do it's job of maintaining 'Homeostasis' and relaxing your body/nervous system.

Yoga Mini Retreats

6 April - Hips Don't Lie

In the April workshop we will focus on finding the correct alignment to enable us to delve deep into our hips. Postures focusing on the lower body and specifically focusing on releasing the muscles and fascia that cross the joints and can restrict our movement. "Katy Bowman says, “your body adapts to what you do most frequently”. And the one body position that we as a culture tend to assume most frequently is sitting with our hips and knees flexed at 90 degrees. You may not think you sit a lot, or you may have a job which requires you to stand but you are forgetting all the other time you do spend sitting because it’s so ingrained in your daily lifestyle that you just don't realise it.
 
In our over-use of sitting it familiarises our brain with a position of shortened hip flexors (the muscles that cross the front of our hips) and hamstrings (the muscles that line the back of our thighs), as well as effectively “turns off” our otherwise powerful glutes, and basically just throws our whole hip area out of balance. The result is unhappy, "tight" hips.
 
What Does “Opening the Hips” Mean?
There are a total of 22 muscles that cross the hip on all sides and at varying angles, including your hip flexors in the front, your hamstrings, glutes, and deep lateral rotators in the back, your inner thigh muscles (collectively called your “adductors”), and your outer thigh muscles (collectively called your “abductors”).
 
A “hip-opener” is technically any stretch that lengthens any of the 22 muscles that cross the hip. This means, for example, that all hamstring stretches are hip openers, all inner thigh stretches (think baddha konasana/butterfly) are hip-openers, all standing poses (warriors, lunges, etc.) are hip-openers, many of yoga’s twists are hip-openers, and as counterintuitive as it may seem, all backbends are also hip-openers. Our whole yoga practice is basically just one big hip-opening opportunity.
 
However, most yogis are very (very!) good at compromising the work we need to do in order to stretch our hips in our poses. This is because we simply don’t understand how to position our joints (a.k.a. alignment) in a way that actually stretches our hips, and we end up leaving our mat without much change in our tight hips at all.” - Jenni Rawlings (Yoga Teacher).
 
In this workshop we will educate our bodies to find the correct alignment to release those ‘tight’ areas. There will be Yang postures and Yin postures to allow our bodies to access those deep layers of connective tissue and fascia.
 
When the Yin and Yang energies of the body are balanced we feel grounded. A balance of effort and ease, action and surrender. If we create space in our busy lives to nourish ourselves we can, in time with yoga, meditation, relaxation and mindfulness find that ‘quiet time' and nourish ourselves.
