Yoga for a Monday Morning

A class that will help de-stress, create cheer and calm in equal measures, leaving you ready to take on the week ahead. A combination of a mini meditation, stretching, breathing and relaxation, this Hatha Yoga class is suitable for all abilities and ages.

Somatic Yoga

Start your week with an hour of calm.  Somatic yoga combines mindful movements with deep stretches to release stress and tension from the body, allowing you to wind down and find more ease at the end of the day.  Each class is a little different, weaving in elements of strength, balance, stretch, and flow, with guided meditations and breathwork.  This is a trauma-informed class meaning we focus on how the practice feels and how our nervous system is responding, not on how it looks.  Everything is optional and lots of props are provided.  This class is a wonderful support for stress and anxiety relief, as well as supporting your overall health and wellbeing.

This class will involve flow of poses matching the relevant season energy along with breathing exercises followed by final relaxation/guided meditation. 

Gentle Hatha

Our Traditional Hatha Yoga class will focus on breathing and exploring postures individually rather than as part of a sequence. Other aspects of yoga will be explored also, including pranayama breathing, mantra chanting and relaxation/meditation. This is a good way to get involved in yoga for newcomers and an opportunity for the more experienced to widen their practice.

Heartfulness Meditation

Modern life makes heavy demands on us and we often feel rushed and pressured.  Through meditation we learn to create a place of calm and peace inside ourselves.  Just as a tree with deep roots is able to withstand strong winds, meditation increases our capacity to cope with the challenges of our busy lives.  Heartfulness offers a simple and practical approach to meditation and relaxation which is easy to learn and integrate into your daily life.  Based on an ancient form of Raja Yoga, it has been simplified and updated to suit a busy modern life.  We meditate on the heart, bringing our focus and attention to the place where we connect with our feelings.  As we tune into our hearts through regular meditation, we find ourselves more in touch with our feelings, more compassionate, less judgmental, better able to understand ourselves and other people.  Our intuitive understanding grows so that our decisions are guided by a deeper sense of what is really right for us, and this in turn gives us greater confidence in ourselves.  Heartfulness uses the subtle energy of yogic transmission, making it easier for our attention to move deeper within. This can best be understood through direct experience.  We invite you to experience Heartfulness, and the unique benefits of this transmission, for yourself.  Sessions are always free, and open to anyone interested.  Donations to cover room hire and to support our work, are always welcome.

Breathwork

Breathwork is a therapeutic practice that allows us to dive deep and tap into our own healing potential. Breathwork is a somatic or bodywork practice designed to take us out of our busy mind and drop into our body where true healing and release happens. It is a unique journey where we are able to discover our true essence and connect with our inner wisdom. People are often blown away by the level of growth and transformation!

We use a style of Breathwork known as conscious connected Breathwork. This is done in such a way that we can literally tap into our nervous system and effectively hit the override button!

It is a powerful tool to move you from the fight and flight state into the more relaxed parasympathetic state and even times into altered states of consciousness.
