Arm balancing with Rosie B

Start your journey into Arm balances

sunday 8th October | 11.30aM

Ready for this! A super fun, challenging practice designed to teach you how to do arm-balances with greater mindfulness and ease.

Students often over-rely on force when working on these poses rather than learning to understand the essential actions and movements. 

This sequence will help your body understand the mechanics and leverage of arm-balances and make these inspiring poses part of your repertoire.

You will learn to;

  • Access your core strength and flexibility 

  • Discover (Bandhas and Asanas) for lift

  • Improve your balancing and awareness
  • Easy breath techniques for more stability

Introduction to Mindfulness

Become fully present and find your calm

Friday 13th October | 6.30pM

This Introducing Mindfulness offers a taste of mindfulness practice and theory for anyone new to mindfulness. It is designed for anyone interested in exploring some key mindfulness themes and practices in ways that might support them personally, in everyday life and work.

Mindfulness is a technique you can learn which involves noticing what’s happening in the present moment, without judgement. You might take notice and be aware of your mind, body or surroundings.

This workshop is guided by Yoga and Mindfulness teacher Madeleine, a guest teacher to The Modern Yoga.

Ashtanga // Pop-up special

An extended practice of fun, challenge and experimentation

Friday 20th October | 6.30pM

In this extended Ashtanga Yoga Workshop, which will be 90 minutes rather than an hour long, we will be able to fit together more of the postures that are traditionally part of the ‘Full Primary Series’ and take a bit of extra time experimenting with some of the postures that we don’t cover very often.

We will have the opportunity (should we want to take it) to spotlight our focus on particular poses that we would personally like to learn more about, ask questions about things that don’t make sense and get guidance in areas which are interesting to us as we progress through our Yoga journey. Of course you are also perfectly welcome to join the class and simply follow along with whatever comes up, same as your usual Tuesday. 

This class will be very similar to the way Rosie teaches your usual Ashtanga session, infusing fun and silliness into the challenge. She will encourage you as always to approach your practise as an experimentation, with childlike curiosity and playfulness. The only difference is there will be a little more time to fit more of your Primary Series together to better understand how all the postures work with one another and feel when completed as a sequence. 

Permission to Rest & Release

We're pressing pause; with breathwork, Restorative Yoga & Nidra

FRIDAY 27th November | 6.30PM

A monthly special where you’re encouraged to press pause and join Becs for a gentle practice of ultimate rest.

This is your self-care time. Your time to slow down. To become still. To reconnect with you. To receive what you need to receive, and release what you need to release. 

In this workshop we will practice gentle breathwork to soothe the mind, before surrendering to gravity through restorative Yoga and finishing by nourishing the body with Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep). 

Suitable for all levels of Yoga inc pregnancy. 

Deepen Your Practice

For when a hour Yoga class just isn't enough, this weekend is for you

SATURDAY & Sunday 6TH/7TH maY | 11.30PM - 5.30pm

Join Roise and Rosie for a deep dive into all things Yoga. Each weekend will have a different theme. This will guide the asana practice, history, philosophy, breathing exercises and meditation for each day.

 Each day will include a visit to the Asana lab, where peak and sometimes complex and challenging poses are broken down to ensure they are fully understood. Modifications will be offered so everything is achievable.

The days will be a blend of practical sessions and lectures covering history, philosophy, and the subtle body. You will also explore The different breathing exercises and kriyas. Each day will come to a close with a calming, quietening practice of meditation, Yin, Nidra, or restorative practice.

We’ll bring the course together with a final Friday evening practice where there will be plenty of time for Q&A’s, journaling, and group discussion and closing meditation.

Join us for one weekend (£120) or for 3 weekends (£300) (early bird until 15th April)
