Beginners Yoga Workshop

Ever wondered if yoga is for you but don’t have the time to commit to a course? If the answer is yes or you’d like a refresher, this could be the perfect workshop for you.

This two-hour session will be part discussion and part class and will end with savasana (relaxation) to leave you rested and refreshed.

Through a mindful and relaxed approach, we’ll explore the key asana (postures), energetic patterns and themes explored in yoga. This foundation will be a stepping-stone for you to leave feeling confident to join group classes.

We’ll explore the many benefits a yoga practice has to offer us both on and off the mat by gaining an awareness of the connection between body, mind and breath.

Workshop for cyclists and runners

Cycling and running are very intense activities for the body. Repeating the same movement over and over again creates tensions and stiffness, which can lead to bad posture and chronic pain (or even injury) in different parts of the body, mainly the back.

Yoga can complement your training well. In this workshop, through a Vinyasa practice, we will target releasing these tensions to give your body the ability to move more freely, to prevent pain and injury.

The sequence is specifically designed for cyclists and runners and focuses especially on the hamstrings, quads, hips, gluteus and back. Throughout the practice you will learn some tips you could incorporate into your own yoga practice and/or training.

We will finish the workshop with some deep stretching and relaxation.

This workshop is suitable for all levels, from beginners to more advanced yoga practitioners. If you are new to yoga, you will also find that beyond the physical benefits, yoga can offer much more, such as relaxation, stress management, a feeling of wellbeing, breath control, etc.

Yin Yoga Workshop with Yoga Nidra meditation

In this 2 hour Yin & Yoga Nidra workshop we will focus on soothing and grounding postures to help turn off the overdrive switch.
 
The long, supported holds in Yin yoga can help the body and mind to relax and release tension mentally, emotionally and physically.Yin yoga creates a gentle traction and compression that helps to flush out toxins and lubricate joints while releasing tension from the surrounding connective tissues.

Following the grounding practice we’ll finish with yoga nidra, or yogic sleep. Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious deep sleep. 

Yoga Nidra brings an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading awareness through many levels of mental process to a state of supreme stillness and insight.

No mediation experience is required. This workshop is open to all levels. Please wear comfortable clothes and you are welcome to bring additional blankets and warm clothing for the yoga nidra.
