Gong Bath with Jemma

Wednesday 23rd August, 7.30 – 9pm

Join us for another deeply relaxing and restorative Gong Bath on the evening of Wednesday 23rd August.

Jemma blends sound medicine, Yoga Nidra and aroma-colour therapy together to help us unplug from daily life and receive the healing vibrations of the sound.

There are studies that prove that receiving sound healing and Yoga Nidra can result in the same benefits as 3-4 hours of sleep – amazing! Allow your mind to switch-off and your body to relax in the most blissful way just before summer gets busy.

So far these evening events have sold out so be sure to save your space.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Beginners/improvers ashtanga yoga – with Caroline

Mysore course with Caroline – 6 weeks

Tuesday 19th April – 31st May, 8-9pm (no class on the 3rd May)

Starting an ashtanga yoga Mysore practice

Beginners often feel unsure whether Mysore classes are right for them, assuming that they will need to know the sequence before they start. However, this is not the case and, in many ways, learning in a Mysore style class is the best and safest way to learn Ashtanga yoga as it ensures that beginners are working at their own pace and receiving individual attention.

This course is designed for beginners interested in the inspiring and dynamic practice of Ashtanga yoga and for those who wish to revisit the fundamentals of the practice.

We will cover the key elements of the practice including:-

PLEASE NOTE: No previous yoga experience is required, as this course is designed for complete beginners or those who wish to start Ashtanga Mysore classes. ALL are welcome, we will take time to explain all movements, showing variations to meet every age, shape and level of fitness. If you have any injuries, or health issues, you must inform the teacher before the class starts.
