ONLINE EVENT: SATURDAY CIRCLE

with SHIRA HESS

Sat, April 10, 2021

11:00 a.m. - 01:00 p.m.

£ 12

An impromptu invitation to join Shira for a Saturday morning circle.

‘Be a lamp unto yourself’, said the Buddha in his last days, when asked for his successor. ‘Be a lamp unto yourself, be a refuge to yourself. Take yourself to no external refuge’.

And on Saturday, weaving together a flowing vinyasa practice, meditation, yoga nidra and chat, we feel what sustain us from the inside when all else has fallen away. We feel the warmth of this inner light.

This circle is designed to give us more space to steep into the teachings, reflect on our practice, ask questions and support one another in a sangha (community). Think of the chat part as those moments of connection and conversation after a class, you know, when we met IRL…

You really don’t have to say anything, but if you would like to, we will focus on questions like: how are you? what are your current challenges and how can your practice better support you? And how can your practice better support any intentions you have for yourself? Or just bring any question/reflection you have about yoga. And should no chatting happen, we will close with a quietening meditation.

Strengthen your practice, deepen your rest and make connections. Hope you can join us.

Open to all levels of experience in yoga.

ONLINE EVENT: Yoga for self-care

with ALMON CASPERSZ

Sat, April 24, 2021

11:00 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.

£10

‘What can I do to take better care of myself?’
This session will give you a range of tools to help you look after your own wellbeing.

We will start with a guided reflection on how we are feeling physically, emotionally and mentally, in order to set an intention for our practice. Once we have ‘checked in’ with ourselves, we will explore a range of practices to meet our needs, such as:

– self-massage
– developing a steady rhythm of breath
– a flowing practice of physical postures
– mindful meditation
– restorative postures for deep relaxation.

You will leave the session with ideas on how to put these tools into use beyond the session, and as part of your yoga practice whether it is new or established.

Practical tips on alternatives to yoga props that you can gather from your own home will be
provided.This class is suitable for everyone, whether you’re an experienced practitioner or new to yoga.

STUDIO EVENT: Vinyasa, meditation and gong retreat 2021

with SHIRA HESS

Every 2nd Saturday of the month, June to September, 2021

4:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

£50-£180

This unique, Summer event in four parts is designed to offer you a luxurious opportunity to take time and dive heart first into yoga, the whole of it, physical, meditative and philosophical. Whether you join us for one or four afternoons, you will re-tune and re-boot, and each time leave more ready and open to embrace life, with all its promise.

12th June
We open as the promise of Summer looms and restricitons are progressivley lifted further, with a heart-warming practice around abundance, tuning ourselves to the vibration of generosity after times when we may have felt challenged, isolated, contracted.

10th July
Our practice will focus on the throat, Vishuddha, chakra and will be themed around expression as we embrace a season of warm sunlight and blossoming nature around us.

7th August
The bright light of Summer is an opporutnity to reflect on how we can see ourselves and others more clearly, more truthfully. Surrender is the theme for our third Saturday. Such a full word. We surrender to this healing light in a practice peppered with forward folds and inversions to challenge and refresh our perspective.

11th September
We close just as the season has peaked and autumn awaits, with the theme of wholeness. Celebrating the whole of our experience and limitlessness. Our physical practice will bring together all that we worked on over the other sessions in a dance of breath and movement and sangha (community).

Each retreat afternoon will offer a complete sadhana (spiritual practice) including a flowing, rounded vinyasa practice, pranayama (breath control exercises) and a restorative sequence to close. After a short break with homemade snacks and a drink from our cafe (included), we close with a gong and sound meditation to relax completely and rest deeply. Throughout the afternoon there will be ample time for conversation and for you to ask any questions about your experience and your practice to move you further along the path.

Warm, welcoming and nourishing, this will be a beautiful opportunity to deepen your practice and your experience of yoga’s rich and profound impact.

In this 4 week course we will explore simple and effective tools and techniques to help us live our lives with more openness, kindness, resilience, and less reactivity, frustration, anger and stress.

STUDIO EVENT: Gong bath

with ALESSANDRA MARGARITO

Fri, June 18, 2021

6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

£20

A special event to experience the meditative and healing wonders of sound!

All you need do is turn up and lie down, and be bathed in the sounds and vibrations of the gong, a sacred instrument that has been used for thousands of years for the purpose of healing.

There is a science behind this experience. The gong’s sounds and vibrations create an alpha brainwave state, where mental activity includes daydreaming and imagination. This is then followed by a theta brainwave state, where activity includes sleep, dreaming and deep meditation.

Theta brainwave frequencies are most often where the gongs will take you. Even though you still feel present, you have entered a dreamlike, deep meditative state. Theta is a good state of consciousness to be in for healing to occur.

Even though there is a science behind sound therapy, this special experience can also be explained by quoting Kabir’s Ecstatic Poems translated by Robert Bly:

‘…..near your breastbone there’s an open flower. Drink the honey that is all around that flower. Waves are coming in: there’s so much magnificence near the ocean! Listen: sound of big seashells! Sound of bells!’

Open to all. Tea served at the end.

YOGA AND QIGONG SERIES

with JAYNE MILLER

6 videos

All levels

£12

Yoga and Qigong weave together beautifully. Both can be flowing forms, helping us to tap into and use our energy, and yet instil a deep inner calmness. Yoga can often seem linear (e.g. Sun Salutations) with an emphasis on extension and strong asana, while Qigong movements are often softer, circular and rhythmic, with a big emphasis on grounding.

Qigong practices are closely linked to five elements and in turn these relate to seasons as well as organ systems within our bodies, to bring us into harmonious balance with ourselves and our environment. The five elements of Qigong do not correspond exactly with the five elements of yoga, but together they help us find our natural balanced state.

These six short practices embrace the rich backgrounds and traditions of both and introduce you to the five elements of Qigong. Close the series with a meditation and breathing practice focused on the middle and the lower dantian (energy points).

The videos can be practised together, individually, whenever as you please.

Part 1: Wood (13:30)

METTA BHAVANA MEDITATION SERIES

with FLORENTINA LAM-CLARK

The practice of Metta Bhavana meditation (universal loving kindness) is the systematic cultivation of our capacity for loving kindness. This method helps us to feel more positive, accepting, kind, and patient toward ourselves, in order that we can be more compassionate and loving toward others. With practice, Metta flowers into compassion and equanimity.

The practice of Metta Bhavana has 5 stages, in which Metta is cultivated towards: ourselves, a good friend, a ‘neutral’ person, someone we find difficult and finally all beings. Explore each stage in depth through the first 5 videos, and then put together the elements explored into a complete practice.

This series is suitable to beginners and those with a more established practice alike.

CHAKRA MEDITATION SERIES

with FLORENTINA LAM-CLARK

9 videos

All levels

£12

The Chakra Energy System is an organised system that operates in the Pranamaya Kosha, or energy body, through which prana, the vital life-force, flows. This is where the health of our energetic, emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual being is integrated, expressed and reflected. When we feel vitalised and vibrant, our emotions are balanced, and energy levels feel abundant. When we are feeling stressed out, pushed to the limit, this is reflected in poor energy and health. Each energy centre is a sphere of information, with qualities and characteristics relating to health and wellbeing. Through meditation and reflection, we can tune in and tap into the inherent wisdom within and connect to their positive attributes.

Meditation is a wonderful way of getting to know and tune into the vibrational energy of the chakras. In this series, you will find a meditation on each individual chakra, that will guide you through their specific qualities and traits. There is also a complete chakra meditation to practice.

Bundle content:

Part 1: Introduction (11:24)

Part 2: Root Chakra (14:00)

Part 3: Sacral Chakra (11:31)

Part 4: Solar Plexus Chakra (11:53)
