Santosha means contentment it is about accepting and finding joy in whatever life brings you. If you are able to experience contentment in this way then happiness becomes your choice.
These occasional Saturday morning mini-workshops help you experience elements of yoga that you donít usually get the chance to spend much time on in your regular weekly classes. The key is to enjoy an element of yoga that helps you stretch, de-stress and embrace Santosha. This is a great way to expand and compliment your regular yoga practice.
We will be practicing slow non-standing poses, with focus on the breath, calming the mind and stretching the body. This will be a combination of Yin and Restorative Yoga poses Ė you will spend time in poses allowing your body to notice how it feels and educate your muscles to fully release so they are less tired and can be more energy efficient. This can help with pain management.
Each pose will be held for a few minutes which allows your body to gently sink into the stretch and providing you with a positive shift in your energy. The time in the pose is used to observe your body and focus on your breath. It is a great opportunity for some quality ďme timeĒ helping you feel calm and in control of your body, while you can forget about the never-ending to do list.
Whether you are tired and craving energy or over-stimulated with too much energy this is an ideal way to de-stress and bring your energy levels to a balanced state.
In the Restorative poses you will hold the pose in a way that is fully supported (with props where needed) and comfortable Ė they are all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. This allows your muscles to relax deeply and release tension stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, slowing the heart rate and regulating blood pressure.
In the Yin poses you may find some effort (or challenge) in holding the poses Ė I will help you find the pose that best takes you to your threshold (not too strong and not too soft) and so that works for you. By holding the poses for longer, your body responds by becoming stronger and more flexible.
If you are new to yoga, then itís fine to come along but be aware this wonít be the classic experience you may expect from all those Instagram images.
Dates: 16 November 2019, 14 December 2019, 26 January 2020 (Sunday) and 22 February 2020 - please go to my Eventbrite page for more information and to book.
A short yoga course for those new to yoga or who haven't practiced for a while. Come along to these four sessions to learn or remind yourself of the basic poses.

This can be bought as a gift for someone else - contact me after you make the booking and I will email you a gift certificate.
The next course is across the following 4 dates: 4, 11 and 25 January 2020 plus 1 February 2020. Please go to my Eventbrite page for more information and to book.
Have you ever wanted to bring yoga into your daily life but struggle because life itself gets in the way? Our days are filled with commuting, working, caring for families and looking after our homes.
On this mini-workshop we will look at ways of incorporating yoga poses and breathing into our normal routine. Maybe a stretching routine we can do at the desk, some chair yoga routines or some easy breathing if we can find 5 minutes and a quiet corner?
You donít always need a mat or to be wearing your yoga clothes to benefit from yoga.
We will discuss how to include yoga into your daily routine. We will look at your specific lifestyle and create/practice some short sequences you can include in your normal day.
This will be a practical workshop. We will work on some poses/routines together and finish with a relaxing yoga sequence.
This workshop is ideal for all yoga students whatever your level or style.
The next course is on 7 March 2020. Please go to my Eventbrite page for more information and to book.
