Go from stressed to relaxed in just 60 minutes
Join this beautiful gong relaxation, where you simply lie back and let the healing sounds of the gong cleanse, renew and rejuvenate you. The gong is a powerful tool for clearing the mind, reinvigorating the nervous system and stripping away any negative thoughts.
In this workshop, we’ll practice a few gentle yoga postures or meditation for about 15 minutes before a lovely long gong relaxation for the rest of the hour.
You don’t need any experience of gong or yoga – just an open mind.
(Those who are pregnant should only take part if they’ve experienced the gong before and feel comfortable with it.)
Please bring your own mat and any props you need (blanket, pillows) to lie comfortably.
Saturday 23rd July, 2 – 4pm
Are you curious about what Ashtanga is? OR, are you wanting to return to your Ashtanga practice but would like to refresh your understanding of the fundamentals? If so, this workshop is for you.
Jayne will guide you through all you need to know in starting your practice in a playful, inclusive and supportive workshop. An Ashtanga practice can help with cardiovascular fitness and the development of core strength, improved flexibility, feelings of wellbeing and the ability to focus.
Jayne will start at the beginning with Sun salutations and the first of the standing sequences of Primary series providing plenty of opportunities to find where each of these poses works best for you. We will finish with the finishing sequence, which provides opportunities for deep rest and restoration. There will be plenty of time for questions and to experience what makes this practice so special.
No need for any equipment or special clothing, just wear something that you can move easily and comfortably in. We have mats and props at the studio so just bring yourself and take the first step on this exciting journey to finding out why this is more than just exercise!

Join Debbie and experience the magic of a 5 day Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Workshop. In this workshop you will receive personalized, individual instruction for your practice while sharing the energy and inspiration of the group. Debbie will hold the space for your growth in the practice of yoga.
Debbie has trained with many of the top ashtanga yoga practitioners since she fell in love with the practice in 1999 and now practices regularly with Eileen Gautier. In 2012 she completed John & Lucy Scott’s teacher training and in October 2016 she received their 500 hour teaching certificate.
In 2013, Debbie qualified as a yoga therapist and feels that this, along with the teachings of those she has been privileged to study with, has given her a greater understanding of, and the ability to work more intelligently with medical conditions, injuries and body patterns, in a way that respects each individual’s needs. Debbie’s approach incorporates the use of deep breathing, bandhas and foundation and above all else, her hope is that her students realize the incredible things they are capable of, on and off the mat.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who has completed the standing sequence of Ashtanga Yoga.
Only 8 spaces available in each session.
