After a warm up, we’ll flow together through a practice of 54 sun salutations (half Mala). We’ll then conclude our time together with a soothing Yin Yoga practice, deeply restoring Shavasana and drinks and snacks.
Its a time to come together and renew energies for the year ahead. Move in union, breathe as one and enjoy the benefits of this powerful healing Yoga Mala.
£20 for the workshop
This is a Yoga Workshop for those looking to develop their inversion balances. Inversions are not just handstands, they include anything where the head is lower than the heart.
In this intensive morning session we will be getting fiery with a strong morning flow, working into asanas that specifically strengthen our upper body and a series of inversions.
There will be some partner work to enable us to feel supported when upside down and to give you an idea of how to assist a friend, child, colleague or student in inversions.
The physical elements of the session will run from 11.30am – 1.30pm.
Everyone is invited to bring a small vegan or vegetarian dish which we will share – or there is a great cafe just below if you fancy grabbing something there (maybe pop in before the workshop so they can prep it for you).
Shared lunch is 1.30pm
Following lunch we will drink a cleansing Turmeric Tea drink which I will prepare and discuss the session a little more, benefits of inversions and anything else that comes up.
It is recommended you have some experience in Yoga and/or Inversions. Any questions on your level of experience please don’t hesitate to ask.

Yin & Yin // Yang, Chakra meditation with Senior Yin Teacher Rebecca Shepherd
Fresh from her studies with the creators of Modern Yin Yoga – Paul and Suzee Grilley – Rebecca will offer an introduction to the “Yang side of Yin”. The Yang practice is the dynamic partner to the deep, relaxing Yin practice. This beautiful, flowing practice targets muscle tissue. The movement helps to stimulate the flow of Chi energy through the body.
This will be followed by a relaxing Yin practice which targets connective tissue and helps to “unclog” the meridian pathways in the body through which Chi flows. We will discuss the meridian system and introduce the Chakric system. We will finish with a short-guided Chakra meditation.
The afternoon will consist of an unhurried, Yin practice expanding on Chakra theory. The session will end with a pranayama session and a longer-guided Chakra meditation.
The whole day is suitable for all levels of Yogi’s and all equipment is provided.
£30 for morning session, £25 afternoon, £50 full day
