Yoga Workshops

Inversion Immersion: 

Friday February 23rd 2018, 6:30-9pm + Saturday 24th February 2018, 10.30-1pm at Level Six Studio Peckham

Turning upside down is an invitation to playfully find courage, strength and a new perspective. In yoga philosophy it is symbolic of uprooting old habits of being whilst grounding the mind. By learning how to safely invert (putting our heart above our head) we discover a wonderful way to awaken awareness, elevate mood, enhance spinal mobility and core stability and reduce the effects of gravity whilst building confidence and trust in ourselves. 

Session One: In this first session we will safely prepare the body to explore basic inversions such as head stand, hand stand and shoulder stand. Working from the ground up we will learn the fundamental alignment points for inversions through a thorough practice and study of foundational asanas like downward facing dog, plank, chaturanga and the dynamic interlinked movements of a yoga vinyasa flow. 

Session Two: In this workshop we’ll further develop and utilize the key alignment principles and core awareness in the body gained from the previous day to learn forearm balances and free standing handstands to enjoy the art and power of being upside down. Partner work will be included… Come prepared to be challenged!

Deep Spring Cleanse Workshop:

April 20th  2018, 10:30-3pm at flow studios in tunbridge wells

£70 per day including delicious vegan lunch – to book please click here

Following the natural cycle of the seasons this workshop is dedicated to awakening from winter mode and shifting our awareness to the rising of the spring equinox and it’s transformative energy of renewal and growth.

This workshop will start with quietening the mind and bringing our consciousness to areas within ourselves that need clearing and releasing as well as nurturing and strengthening (be it physically, mentally and/or emotionally) in order to bring meaningfulness and power into the yogasana practice.

We will then move through a full flowing and focused yoga practice integrating pranayama, asanas and mindfulness to help remove stagnation, wring out toxins, banish winter sluggishness and activate and balance the major bodily systems (nervous, digestive, respiratory and lymphatic) to restore ourselves to full energy and radiance.

 

Full Moon Glow: 

June 29th  2018, 10:30-3pm at flow studios in tunbridge wells

£70 per day including delicious vegan lunch – to book please click here

‘Soma’ translates from Sanskrit as ‘the nectar of the moon’ and it is the cooling healing quality or elixir of our awareness which cultivates spaciousness and acceptance.

Through this slow, soulful workshop we’ll explore the potential for breadth and space within asanas to help foster the flow of soma (nectar) and release into the expansive nature of our essence.

The practice will include standing, seated, supine and inverted poses… and in particular variations of anjaneyasana (crescent moon) and chadrasana (moon).

 

Seasons of the Heart:

November 30th  2018, 10:30-3pm at flow studios in tunbridge wells

£70 per day including delicious vegan lunch – to book please click here

The heart is as the sun whose energy supports and radiates throughout the whole body. “As every living thing on the earth depends on the light and heat of the sun, so every living cell of our bodies depend on the immense living energy of the heart...” (Miranda Tufnell). And although the heart is our circulatory system’s centre it is not just purely a mechanical pump – its cells register and respond to all that takes place within our own body and the outer world.

During this daylong workshop we’ll be guided through a deep slow flow asana session and pranayama heart breathing practices to help renew energy, reconnect to the hearts’ essence + revitalise the whole body.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yogaria Aerial Yoga Workshops

Yogaria097Dates to be confirmed

Classes and workshops draw upon the authentic yogasana system and integrate it with the principals of aerial training using a rigged silken cocoon material, which stretches organically yet has tremendous strength, like another skin, to harness, support and lift us from the ground.

Every session begins with gentle mat based asana work to strengthen and safely prepare the body and mind for the challenges of aerial work. We then move on to develop the practice in to fluid sequences using the cocoon alternatively with floor work to both elevate and ground.

Fun and challenging as well as restorative and gentle, Yogaria Aerial Yoga invites you to develop your confidence, strength and agility whilst deepening your yoga practice mentally and physically both on and off the mat.

Important Notes on Aerial Yoga workshops: Aerial work is strong, so expect to be challenged, stretched and strengthened to the core!

Mat work and partner work are both integral parts of aerial practice, so please come prepared to work on the yoga mat as well as in the air, and to share the practice and work with others.
Please also bring along extra clothing: one long and one half-sleeved top (no vests) and a long or knee length bottom (not baggy) to layer yourself with, so as to avoid friction of the skin with the cocoon
