“I feel so lucky to have discovered your yoga classes. I have searched a long time to find the right class and I have never experienced a class quite like yours. You have a unique way of creating an energising, relaxing and inspiring class each week. The chakra workshop was the most amazing class” Hannah
Exploring Layers of Being – a Yin into Yoga Nidra workshop
Tuesday 16th June 7 – 9pm
Yogic philosophy teaches that we have 5 “bodies” called Koshas, or Sheaths in Sanskrit, they are like the layers of an onion surrounding our true nature, or higher state of being. Through this workshop we will gently explore these layers of being ending up with the Anandamaya Kosha – the bliss sheath, which the practice of Yoga Nidra can help to access.
An evening workshop to soothe your soul, nurture your heart and set you up for a peaceful nights sleep. Yin poses and acupressure to calm the spirit and Yoga Nidra to help you relax deeply.

4th July – Heart of the Summer – a Yin workshop at the Yoga Garden, Horsham.
10.30-1.30pm. (Booking through the Yoga Garden)
During this time together we will nourish the energy of the heart, the element of Fire, which is associated with Summer.
Saturday 3rd October 10am – 5pm
at The Loft, above Little Dippers, Brighton
Summer is the most Yang time of the year, the most social and highest energy. The transition between Summer and Autumn is a good time to slow down a little, to reconnect with yourself, to check in with how things are going, to settle after the busy past few months. It can have that back to school feeling and it can help to create some space to get clear about what is going to be best for you in your next season.
This day retreat coincides with the full moon, which is a time for practicing gratitude and to let go of what is no longer serving you. In Chinese medicine, just as in nature Autumn is the time for letting go, this day for yourself will be the opportunity for reflecting on this and connecting to your own inner wisdom to discover what will be most nourishing for you moving forward.
You can expect;
Yin Yoga to nourish the Lung Chi for Autumn
Guided self enquiry/journaling

He now lives in Taiwan so only comes back to visit here every now and then so this will be a real treat!

Feedback from a yin workshop:
“Just to say: this was the slowest, deepest and physically effortless Yoga workshop ever. I felt exquisitely calm all day Sunday – in fact, the sense of quiet seemed to deepen even more. What a miraculous process!” Ruth

How To Centre Yourself
A useful tool in times of stress.
1. Feel your connection to the earth, bring awareness to your feet and sitting bones, if you are seated. Straighten your spine as if pulling energy up from the earth right up to the crown of your head.
2. Breathe long slow deep belly breaths. Make the out breath longer and as you exhale let go.
3. Relax the middle line of your body; between your eye brows, your mouth, tongue, jaw and finally your belly.
