BACKBENDING II

with Elisa Devlin

A strong and flexible spine is an important part of your practice. In this workshop we will establish the foundations for back bending. Working from the ground upwards, examining the legs in standing postures and how they affect the spine. We will move up the arms and work shoulder opening exercises to facilitate greater space during big backbends like the wheel (Urdvha Dahnurasa) and eventually once we’re all warmed up work our drop backs from standing.Be prepared to arch back, often there is a lot of fear and emotions around backbends. It’s normal, and we’ve all been there. This workshop will create a safe environment for greater discovery of what your body can achieve. Open to all levels accept complete beginners. It doesn’t matter how stiff or flexible you are, back bends are for everyone. Building step by step, only going as far as you’re comfortable, but definitely beyond where you’ve been before.

Come and explore!
Elisa teaches vinyasa flow with an emphasis on original sequencing for a continuously evolving practice. Incorporating a sound knowledge of anatomy and drawing upon her BA in Maharishi Vedic Science she provides a challenging and safe class environment for all levels.
Asanas are the external play, but the inner work is the most rewarding. Practicing with awareness, patience and compassion, we train the heart, mind and the body to be strong and flexible.

INDABA BASIC COURSE

Designed with those brand new to yoga in mind, this three week course focuses on breath and body awareness. Each week new principles and postures of yoga will be integrated into a well balanced class which will leave you feeling both energized and at ease in body and mind. The course is designed to give you a basic knowledge of postural names and alignment, breath control, and conscious movement. Everyone has to start somewhere, and this small group setting allows you to feel comfortable with learning the postures of yoga and how to modify them to your body.

Bryony loves to teach beginners as it the best time to explore the basics and evaluate which style of yoga will be best for you. Bryony teaches with compassion, humour and relaxed shoulders.

She was first introduced to Yoga during her teens by her Mother. Since then she has deepened her own practice through studying with many teachers and being open to all styles and systems. This exploration has allowed her to engage with her body and most importantly get to know herself.

Bryony undertook teacher training in order to further her understanding of yoga and found sharing her knowledge and communicating with students was a natural progression.  She continues to be inspired all forms of yoga, being particularly intrigued by the subtle details of alignment, different body types and the energetical body.

This course is open to six students only, booking is required

£50 for three weekly 90 min classes

HEALTHY HAMSTRINGS AND FORWARD FOLDS

with Nathalie Mukusheva

Hamstrings are a common source of frustration for many yoga practitioners. In this workshop the focus will be on why the hamstrings are so important to a fulfilling yoga practice and exploring tips and tricks for healthy hamstring stretches.
The hamstrings are intimately connected to the health of the lower back and pelvis. Many back injuries and lower back pain issues are directly related to the hamstrings. Often the urge to go deeper into forward folds means we tend to ‘pull’ on the hamstrings to go deeper which can cause stress to the connective tissue in the lower back.In this workshop we will explore in depth specific actions in yoga poses that will help make progress in elongating and lengthening the hamstrings, leading to greater ease inforward folds and helping to ease back pain.

Tension in the lower body, particularly the soles of the feet, the calves and the hamstrings translates up the whole body. Tension in the hamstrings or lower legs tends to cause tension in the lower back and the neck and even tension around the head that is related to tension headaches. So lengthening the hamstrings is not just for the benefit of the legs, it’s really for the benefit of the whole body.Open to all levels of practioners, this workshop will particularly benefit those who feel tight hamstringshamper their practice and those who have hyper extension in the legs.
Nathalie found her yoga practice around 2000. After studying ballet and rhythmic gymnastics from early childhood and later branching out into other disciplines including Aerial Hoop, Floor-Barre® and Contortion training, her initial attraction to yoga was to regain the flexibility and freedom of movement she had enjoyed so much when she was younger.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF ASANA

with Lizzie Reumont

Our bodies were designed by a master architect to house the most precious creation. Nonetheless, life can be complicated mentally and physically, and too often we end up living without an awareness of what it means to be in the body, without knowing how to use the resources that we have to enrich our day to day existence and to deepen our asana practice. This three – part workshop, which will include plenty of dynamic asana practice, aims to shine a light on the segmented body’s function and potential so that we may re-integrate the parts in a meaningful way.

Sunday, October 5th, 1.30-4.30pm
THE CENTRE COLUMN
The Centre Column: the viscera and spine. The core body not only has a boney casing of spine on the back and rib cage in the front, but it has top and bottom boney landmarks in the girdles of the shoulders and hips. These hard surfaces offer containment for the vast and oceanic underlying visceral world. In this 3 hour workshop we will explore the dimensionality of the spine in conjunction with opening of the lateral body to create space. Asanas will include side-bending, twisting and back bending (front extensions).

Sunday, November 2nd, 1.30-4.30pm
THE CUPOLA
The Cupola: the neck and head. An awareness of the head, jaw and neck in asana practice is crucial to being balanced in body and mind; after all, it houses all of the nerves that help us to function physically and mentally. This three hour workshop will focus on the cranium and neck and their relationship in key asanas and pranayama. We will also explore techniques for releasing tension and emotional holding patterns.

Lizzie was first drawn to yoga as a philosophy student over 15 years ago as a way of deepening her understanding of the relationship between the body and the mind. As she increasingly integrated the practices of yoga into her daily life, the healing benefits transpired and yoga eventually took over as her fulltime occupation. She has intently studied with a variety of internationally renowned teachers and schools including Iyengar, Sivananda and Ashtanga, and most notably, the Jivamukti method which she has been teaching since 2007. She is also certified as a thai yoga masseur and a craniosacral therapist.

Having recently undergone a liver transplant, the philosophical, anatomical and experiential knowledge of yoga has helped her to overcome the challenges of a chronic illness and of the physical changes one goes through during this type of invasive surgery. During this time she has also been studying Rolfing at the British Academy for Rolfing and Structural Integration, both of which have made a tremendous impact on her life and yoga practice.

DHARMA MITTRA WORKSHOPS

with Rebecca Kovacs

Saturday, October 11th, 1.30-4.30pm
INFRASTRUCTURE OF INVERSIONS

Whether you are a seasoned hand-stander or be it your first glimpse at the world upside down, you will discover something new you can do. This workshop is taught from foundation to float-using specific principles and body mechanics to improve core stabilization and precision of movement.
It will consist of drills and inventive flow to create patterns in your body and mind so you may feel safe and comfortable when inverting. Through the discipline, we will find freedom.
This workshop is complete with breath, bandha, movement, mantra and meditation.

Sunday, October 12th, 1.30-4.30pm
BREATH WORK AND BACKBENDS

The breath is instrumental in moving through your practice with sthira-steadness and sukha-ease. Both are required for strength, flexibility and grace. It, the breath, is the keeper of life and rhythm and will inform accordingly, creating grounds for tension when breath is short and shallow, and space and clarity when consciously directed slowly and steadily.
In this workshop we will coordinate breath and movement in asana and transition as well as practice pranayam techniques from the lineage of Sri Dharma Mittra. With the expanded inner space from the breath work we will move, with breath, into our hips and shoulders, the framework of the spine. Through breath, proper form and alignment, patience and consistency, you can create pain free opening. This workshop is complete with breath, bandha, movement, mantra and meditation.

Rebecca has been living as a traveling yogini for over a decade. She had long since realized her passion for travel but in realizing her dharma, sharing spiritual knowledge through the Yoga Arts and Science, she merged the two and found herself globetrotting, with a mission to spread the teachings of her beloved teacher, Sri Dharma Mittra. Rebecca’s primary focus is to uplift the hearts of humans through her playful and grounded practice and transmission of these Classical Hatha/Raj Yoga techniques. Rebecca will celebrate you where you are in your practice and encourage you to soften into the possibility of something new. Her workshops are informative and foster expansion of awareness, compassion and potential. She inspires others to find and follow their dharma.

£35 for each and £65 for both workshops

Saturday, October 18th, 1.30-4.30pm

GO UPSIDE DOWN!

with Stewart Gilchrist

Up is not always up, down is not always down. When we reverse our visual field and our base of physical support by doing an inversion, we dance with energy without attaching to labels or preconceived notions.
In this workshop Stew will take you on a journey to the upside down world with a fresh perspective. When one can remain upside down with calm abiding, it is the beginning of the ability to stay centred when our world turns topsy-turvy. To prepare you for that Stew will take you to poses like headstand and shoulder stand.
Headstand and shoulder stand are considered the king and queen of all yoga asanas because they offer so many powerful physical benefits. Sirsasana, headstand, stimulates the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain, the master glands of the endocrine system that controls chemical balance throughout the entire body. Salamba Sarvangasana, shoulder stand, stimulates the thyroid and parathyroid glands, which regulate metabolism.
Also, both asanas stimulate your crown chakra, which is our connection to the universe. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the source of our beliefs and it’s the source of our spirituality. When this chakra is developed, it brings us knowledge, wisdom, understanding, spiritual connection, and bliss.
Apart from inversions Stewart will incorporate plenty of other asanas in this 3 hour workshop with an ongoing dialogue! His teachings are filled with loads of laughter and years of insight into the practice!Not suitable for beginners.

£35 for 3 hours / £30 before October 4th

THE ART OF YOGA: STRENGTH AND GRACE FOR ADVANCED PRACTITIONERS

with Naomi Absalom

This workshop is for practitioners looking to advance their understanding of yoga through incredibly elegant and mindful transitions.

This will be a strong yet playful practice sprinkled with core work, arm balances, inversions and backbends but our main focus will be the form and quality of intelligent and well controlled movement which leads to such postures. It is in understanding and experiencing all of these moments to their fullest that limiting and learned behaviours and fears are faced and longstanding habitual patterns broken down. Greater form, attentive alignment and strength of mind are the gateway to an advanced practice.

When we practice yoga our weak points come to the surface, the mind most often chooses the path of least resistance and draws the body to that point. This workshop will get you to connect physically to the midline, hugging muscle to bone to draw into the central channel of sushumna – the place of grace where energy rises. You will feel stronger in every single way, more energised and inspired.

Students must have a good knowledge of surya namaskar A & B to attend.

Naomi’s skill is in leading students to a place of great clarity and understanding of themselves. Therefore this workshop will be a strong and challenging practice on every level and really for those who want to get clearer on their stuff!

£35 for 3 hours/ £30 (before October 5th)

TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATHING AND MINDFUL MOVEMENT

with Rebecca Dennis and Aimee Hartley

This 3 hour workshop combines the powerful and cutting edge technique of Transformational Breath with mindful movement.

UNRAVELING HABITUAL TENSION IN THE HIPS: A FORREST YOGA WORKSHOP

with Kristi Johnson

A lot of the struggle and inflexibility we find around our yoga practice and life in general is very much governed by our habitual thoughts, actions and attitudes, and the way that we approach things. We limit ourselves by holding onto belief patterns, and behaviors that keep us locked up in the same place mentally and physically.The body holds a huge amount of emotional memory. The hips in particular store a fascinating amount of memory based on our earlier experiences in life. What we ‘chose’ to store or hold onto here very much effects how we react physically, energetically and emotionally to our physical world without even being aware of it.

Through a steady Forrest yoga sequence of Pranayama, Core Work, Standing Poses, and Inversions, we are going to dig that little bit deeper into the mysteries of the hips and begin to unravel those habitual patterns that keep us stuck in our old, inflexible ways. We will work to generate an energy that grounds, sparks creativity and most importantly begins to unravel this habitual tension in the hips.

A certified Forrest Yoga Teacher, Kristi’s classes are strong, grounded and inspiring, based on the four pillars of Forrest Yoga – strength, breath, integrity, and spirit. It is through Forrest Yoga that Kristi found healing, and discovered the true power; and beauty that had unfolded in her own life. She believes in working hard, but working mindfully, and offers modifications for different levels and injuries, sharing compassionate hands on assists.

Now sharing that discovery with his students, he teaches a fluid power vinyasa yoga that emphasizes strength, flexibility and a constant sense of play and adventure.
