  • ashtanga yoga : all levels
  •  
    Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic high heat flowing practice to tone, strengthen and detoxify. Repeating and building on elements of the Primary Series.
     
    In this class you will repeat the same sequence of poses each week, ultimately committing it to memory and moving on to self practice.
     
     

  • ashtanga yoga : level 2
  •  
    Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic high heat flowing practice to tone, strengthen and detoxify. Repeating and building on elements of the Primary Series.
     
    In this class you will repeat the same sequence of poses each week, ultimately committing it to memory and moving on to self practice.

    In this class there will be an assumption that you are familiar with your sun salutations, but there is no expectation that you can memorise the sequence as it is a taught class. You will be introduced to some more challenging postures in this class.

  • vinyasa flow yoga : all levels

    Deep stretching for strength and flexibility leaves you energized yet relaxed.


    All levels - everyone welcome, differing abilities are catered for. Complete beginners should be aware that a minimum level of fitness is recommended as these classes may be faster paced or more physically challenging.

  • CPD for teachers and teacher trainees: Modifying challenging asanas

  • A Continuing Professional Development workshop for yoga teachers and teacher trainees, accredited by Yoga Alliance
     
    How can you modify those challenging yoga asanas often featured in class to safely support your students and encourage them to progress?


    We all know what it feels like to have a pose that we would love to do but that never seems to get any easier. For some students, the struggle towards that elusive asana can have a huge effect on their entire practice, physically, mentally and emotionally. This workshop will give you practical ideas on empowering your students, giving progressions and variations of poses (with and without props) to take them a little further on their journey, feeling that they have achieved something and going away happy.


    Through a selection of typical asanas, we will cover the following areas:

    • Encouraging compassion and ahimsa (non violence), the first ‘rule’ of yoga.
    • Always offering options for students to feel the right action, the essence, and the joy of any posture, whatever their body.
    • Intelligent krama (steps): highlighting the pathway of progressions so everyone can build up at their own pace, never feeling stuck.
    • Appreciating the journey: struggle fosters humility, teaches tenacity, and develops patience!
    • Language: not encouraging competitiveness, praising the essence and effort, not the final shape.
    • Observation, a bit of psychology and a dose of good humour helps: to discourage risky or forceful behaviour, and to support the fearful, the defeated or embarrassed.

    Discover what you can do with modifications to help bring all your students along for the ride!


    This workshop is open to all yoga teachers regardless of training and lineage, all yoga teacher trainees, and any advanced yoga student interested in teaching skills.


    Feedback from previous CPD's:

    "Both workshops were a real confidence boost and I have been able to apply what I learnt in my classes already. Can't wait to go to the others!" (teacher Imogen)

    "The workshop made me feel both humble in recognising that we all encounter the same difficulties, and enthused with renewed willingness to research, deepen my understanding and become every day the best teacher I can be" (teacher Francesca)
