Friday 21st October
6-8pm Restorative Inversions and Pranayama
Understand the essential use of Yoga props to find a still and subtle understanding of the classic asanas. Learn intelligent sequencing in your restorative practice to bring about a profound change to the inner workings of your practice.
In the practice we will explore standing forward bends to prepare for the main focus of restorative inversions and pranayama. With the full support of various props one can easily sustain long holds in theses asanas. Feel the therapeutic effect of the restorative practice on both the physical and subtle systems of the body, including the glandular and nervous systems.
Understanding the Doshas will give us a practical means to find our balance and to live harmoniouslt with Nature.
Each of the Yoga Workshops will take an experiential approach for the practitioner to understand
- the qualities of Elements that form the Doshas,
- the function of the Doshas in the balance of the bodily systems.
These practical workshop's will relate specifically to understanding the Doshas and their place in the body. The asana sequence will specifically work on stimulating and balancing the particular Doshas in the body.

“My profound love for all forms of yoga started at an early age, and has inspired and influenced me through the years, as I continue to learn. It is as much a spiritual journey as it is a physical one, for me.
Alignment based Hatha Yoga classes include Pranayama/ Meditation
I believe that by connecting deeply with breath and a body aligned for optimum energy flow, you are supported to connect even deeper, with the inner essence of who you truly are.
Hatha Yoga for Women's Health
I am passionate about women's health at all ages and about maintaining balance and well being as we get older. My women's health classes have a holistic approach, integrating ayurvedic principles along with yoga asana.
Restorative Yoga and Pranayama/ Meditation
By drawing on my background as an alternative therapist, I aspire to create a balancing and nurturing space in my Restorative Yoga classes. This allows you compassionate conversation with your body and mind, teaching you how to relax deeply, in order to heal on every level."
