SCARAVELLI YOGA

with FRANKIE WALKER

Fri, December 04, 2020

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

£20

A workshop introduction to Vanda Scaravelli’s approach to yoga, using the principles of functional movement, breath, gravity and the natural movements of the spine.

Scaravelli spoke of going with, not against, the body to get the most from our practice. This somatic approach encourages us to listen to our body knowing that there is a deep wisdom there, within the cells themselves.

The practice is therefore slow, yet challenging, and focuses on detail to find deeper layers of muscle tissues and deeper connections through bone and joint structures.

This is a great practice for those who want to explore the underlying patterns in yoga and in our bodies, to release tension, and to discover perhaps a different way to approach themselves with real kindness.

It is suitable for all bodies and abilities. Expect an explorative and playful class!

strong flow, deep beats

with SCARLETT PERDEREAU

Sat, December 12, 2020

5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

£20

Power through this strong, dynamic yoga session set to a playlist of deep grooves and beats. Forget the dark, cold season, and kick off your Saturday night feeling elated!
The music will be a bit louder, the lights a bit dimmer, so you can lose yourself in a sweaty vinyasa flow practice and on a musical journey, like a dance on the mat, ending in a deep relaxation accompanied by a soundscape specially mixed for the occasion.

Open to all levels, although not recommended for complete beginners.

To ensure safe distancing, numbers are limited.

GONG BATH

with ALESSANDRA MARGARITO

Fri, December 18, 2020

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.

ONLINE: CHRISTMAS EVE YIN AND YOGA NIDRA TREAT

with CATRIN OSBORNE

Thu, December 24, 2020

5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

£10

Join us for a cosy workshop to let go of all tensions this Christmas Eve, from the comfort of your own home!

This workshop also runs at the studio, so if you’d prefer to attend there, scroll down the page and book the STUDIO: Christmas eve yin and yoga nidra treat.

Yin yoga is a quiet, reflective practice that can help us slow down and look inwards, focusing on the meditative power of the breath, stillness and observing what comes up when we let go.

We will sustain long stays in floor-based stretching postures, with the use of props to help support the body. This opens up fascia, a layer of connective tissue covering the entire body.

We will then find true rest with yoga nidra, a practice done in Savasana (lying down comfortably) that leads us into deep relaxation, somewhere between waking and sleeping. Catrin will guide you around the body while you relax and really let go physically, mentally and emotionally.

Expect to end the workshop feeling like you have stretched the body, often going deeper as we hold the postures for longer, but also with a sense of inner calm, enabling you to feel less stressed, experience better sleep, and nurture your inner peace in busy or challenging times.

“Solitude is where I place my chaos to rest and awaken my inner peace.” – Nikki Rowe

Open to all levels.

A ZOOM meeting link will be sent to you 30-15mins before the start of the workshop.

We recommend you gather blankets, and cushions or pillows, to use in the practice.

10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

£50 per day or £180 for all sessions

Come and hang out with us this Christmas holiday!

2020 was a year like no other. Covid changed everything and forced us to completely adapt the way we live and practice. This four-day retreat is our opportunity to redress the balance and reclaim our practice.

This unique event 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. It will help you reconcile the unusual experience of the year, re-tune and reboot yourself, ready and receptive to embrace 2021 with all the promise it holds.

Each day of the retreat will offer a complete sadhana (spiritual practice) including a flowing, rounded vinyasa practice that will intensify over the four days, pranayama (breath control exercises) and a restorative sequence
to close our mornings.

After a short break with delicious, handmade snacks prepared in our new cafe on site, we will close the day with a gong and sound meditation to relax completely and rest deeply.

There will also 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 end to a complicated year!

You can book single days, or the whole four-day retreat.
