COURSES & WORKSHOPS

YOGA FOR BEGINNERS

Yoga courses for people brand new or returning to yoga, or anyone wishing to improve their understanding and confidence with yoga asana (physical yoga postures), breathwork and relaxation, perhaps with the intention of joining a regular weekly class or developing a self-practice.

Across the sessions we will explore the essentials needed to start you on your way to enjoying a yoga practice. We will address:

  • An introduction to the history & philosphy of yoga

  • Simple movements & stretches

  • The basics of asana (postures) & adapting them for you

  • Healthy alignment & using props

  • Breath awareness & pranayama

  • Relaxation & meditation

 

We will take time to explore the foundations before enjoying relaxation at the end of each class.

YOGA AT HOME: DEVELOPING A PERSONAL PRACTICE

A workshop with Rebecca.

Saturday 1st Feb, 2-5pm

Developing a home practice is an amazing way to to increase the depth and regularity of your yoga practice. Making time to practice on our own in between classes gives us space to explore our unique relationship with yoga and our own bodies and minds.

You’ll find the freedom to move at your own pace, listen to your body and respond to your needs, noticing how the practice affects your daily life and wellbeing.

Developing a home practice can be daunting - yoga is a huge subject! - so I have created this workshop for you, during which we will explore the tools you need to get going. We will work on asana (postures), pranayama (breath work) and simple meditations and how to connect them all together, along with other hints & tips on establishing your routine and finding out more about this ancient philosophy and how to bring it into your daily life.

Some previous experience of yoga would be beneficial but not absolutely essential. Please contact me if you are unsure.

Please bring: a new notebook & pen, water, your own mat & props if you have them (though all will be available to borrow if you do not).

Wear: clothing comfortable to move & practice in, plus warm socks & a jumper.

You will be offered the opportunity to purchase your own set of props closer to the time.

Investment: £38

MINDFUL MEDITATION

Run in mini-blocks of a few weeks, each mini block we focus on a chosen meditation.  Week-to-week we become more familiar with our meditation, traveling a little further on our journey each time.

This is time to breathe, reflect and go inside, with guidance through pranayama (breathwork), guided meditations and relaxation techniques.

Meditation is suitable for any ability or experience, complete beginners included.

Next start: 27th January (3 weeks)

Following: 24th February (3 weeks)

Whist we hope you'll be able to attend and enjoy each block in full, you are still welcome to book individual sessions if you cannot.

YOGA & CANDLELIGHT MEDITATION

Friday 7th February 7-9pm

Friday 6th March 7-9pm

A special series of evening yoga & meditation sessions with Rebecca, held over the darker, winter months.

I would love to welcome you to the studio for a gentle flowing yoga movement practice, sequenced to relax and soothe the body and nervous system before we settle in for guided relaxation, breathwork and guided, traditional "Trataka" candle gazing meditation.

The ancient practice is intended to purify and invigorating the mind, paving the way for a deeper meditation experience, releasing stress and tightly held emotions, so you come away feeling soothed and renewed.

Beginners and all levels are welcome.
