Practice becomes firmly grounded when well attended to for a long time, without break and in all earnestness.

Activate and release –
neck, shoulders, back

a 4 week course, live on Zoom

Tuesdays 9 – 30 March 2021, 18:00 – 19:15 UK time

Working from home at the moment? With hours hunched over in front of a screen… Or looking after a baby or toddler? With the heavy lifting that comes with it…

Our ways of moving – and also not moving – often mean shoulders are tight, the neck stiff, and the back achy. This can be a result of poor posture, muscle tension or overuse. And these parts of the body also tense when we feel stressed or worried…

To release some of this tension we need to activate the muscles around neck, shoulders and back as well as mobilise them and create freedom of movement and flexibility – so essentially strengthen as well as release.

Over the course of 4 sessions we’ll look at strengthening core and upper body, including neck, back and shoulders, as well as actively creating more mobility and passively releasing tension in these areas.

There will be time in each session to ask questions, add comments, and receive individual attention – during the session as well as in the end.

A fully edited recording of each session will be provided, so that you can repeat in your own time or catch up if you need to miss one or several sessions.

Inner strength, inner light

a yin & yang workshop live on Zoom

Sunday 11 October 2020, 10:00 – 12:00

There’s an idea in psychology and medicine that fundamentally, the path your life takes depends on just three causes: how you manage your challenges, protect your vulnerabilities, and increase your resources. These causes are located in three places: your world or environment, your body, and your mind.

In this 2 hour workshop we will work particularly with the body and mind to connect to and build on our inner strength – physically, mentally, and emotionally. We’ll start with an energetic vinyasa flow sequence guided by the breath – a great way to metabolise stress hormones and send signals to the nervous system to relax. We will then transition into a slow, calming restorative sequence and finish with a deep guided relaxation (yoga nidra). 

We’ll explore tools for body and mind to build resilience and calm strength, so that we can start to tap into places of lightness, ease and calm.

For all levels apart from complete beginners.

Transition & transform

a yin & yang workshop

This 2 hour workshop explores themes of transition, how we relate to change, and what in our life can be transformed. We start with an energetic vinyasa flow sequence guided by the breath, balanced with a slow, calming restorative practice – a chance to stay longer with any physical or mental experience bringing consciousness into a calm, meditative space. The workshop closes with a long, deep yoga nidra (yogic sleep) – a guided relaxation practice to bring about physical, mental and emotional ease.
