Exciting news! New classes coming soon!

I’m starting not one, but two new classes, in the Yurt at Lifeworks by Rio Pools, Charfield. From 3rd May, the 9:15 class will be a Vinyasa Flow, suitable for most people, friendly and welcoming. Props will be offered to help access the variation of the pose that’s right for you at that moment, on that day.

The 12:15 class will be an exploration of some other limbs of yoga: concentration (dharana), meditation (dyhana), breath work (pranayama), withdrawal of the senses (pratyahara), study of the yamas (“right thinking”) and niyamas (“right doing”) , and also the most well-known aspect of yoga, the postures, or asana. (For more information on these, here is an decent article.)

Halfway through the working week, this class is designed to reset your body and mind, helping you access clarity, creativity, reduce stress, and counter some of the physical effects of working or studying. I’m really excited to offer a class geared towards the lesser-known aspects of yoga, especially because meditation and breath work have been so helpful for me personally in my mental health journey.

I’m also really excited because the venue is stunning! Check it out:

In the grounds there’s also a meadow, perfect for walking meditation or outdoor practice, and a little stream. It’s beautiful- you’re bound to leave feeling so laid-back as to be horizontal!

I am also starting an early-morning class for the larks out there: Mondays at 7am in Whitminster Village Hall. This class will start on the 5th June and will be a general level Vinyasa Flow class, suitable for most people. I know it sounds a bit brutal, but at that time in the summer it’s so worth getting up early, and the class will make you feel energised and ready to face the week ahead- what’s not to like really!? Surya Namaskar, Salute to the Sun, around the summer solstice. Perfect!
