The Intro to Yoga Course aims to share the underlying principles of yoga and to lead you through the basic poses. You will become familiar with using your breath in both posture work and meditation.

with Vinnett

We are delighted to be offering this new class with Vinnett. This Thursday night feast is influenced by the flow and heat of the Ashtanga practice with the unlocking of kundalini energy. Through these practices we increase our coordination, self-esteem, strength and ease tension in both the mind and body.

Vinnett’s generous attention to detail gifts all of the senses; expect poetry, music, candles and fragrance. Vinnett guides us into a moving meditation, yoking the mind, body and spirit, in a flowing dynamic approach. ~ Trust the process ~ Commit to the flow

Mindfulness and Insight Course

Mindfulness & Insight Course
with Mark Dunn

If you suffer from stress, anxiety, or mood swings or if you just want to learn how to feel happier and more content then Mindfulness is for you.

This six week course includes the key aspects of Mindfulness: meditation and enquiry. These techniques are very simple yet have profound impacts on our lives when we start to put them into action. In each class we will start by practicing simple meditation techniques that help us to step out of our thinking minds and back into the present moment. A regular practice of Mindfulness meditation, even only 10 minutes a day, increases our feelings of happiness and contentment throughout our day and reduces our negative reactions to 'stressful' events.

After meditating we will explore the types of thoughts that cause us to feel stress and learn to use enquiry to turn negative, painful thinking into positive patterns that enhance our daily lives and leave us feeling relaxed and enthusiastic.

Each 90 minute session will focus on a different aspect of Mindfulness and will include discussion and feedback about your own experiences. You will be fully supported to develop a practice that works for you.

Week 1: Being mindful of our breath. Enquiry into the causes of stress.
Week 2: Deeper breath awareness. From frustration to peace.
Week 3: Body awareness. Letting go of worry and anxiety.
Week 4: Deeper body awareness. Letting go of guilt and regret.
Week 5: Mindfulness on the go. Understanding addictive patterns.
Week 6: Positive Meditation. Managing self-judgements

Pilates Course

Pilates Course
with Celia Stubbs

Pilates is remarkably effective and medically-approved. Great for toning and strengthening, it can help to relieve back problems created by a lack of core strength. It is of a holistic nature, being based upon a well-constructed philosophical foundation. Central to the Method is 'awareness of your own body' and each and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles:

Relaxation
Co-ordination
Alignment
Stamina and Concentration
Centring
Breathing
Flowing Movements
By working on the deep architectural structure of the body, 'core stability' is achieved, and then maintained, through increasingly complex movement sequences. Specific problem-areas can be targeted by an exercise, but always in relation to the rest of one's body.

Baby Massage

A six-week course for parents and their babies from birth to crawling.

This course provides an opportunity for intimacy, positive touch, playful interaction and bonding with your baby. Leonie provides an easy-going, baby-centred environment for joyful and relaxed parent-infant interaction as well an opportunity to share and connect with other parents.

Throughout the course you will learn a step-by-step oiled massage sequence to use at home with your baby. My aim is to help you gain confidence with your intuitive touch and support your baby to feel secure and confident also.

As well as baby massage, each class will allow some time for gentle postnatal yoga, a baby yoga sequence and some age appropriate developmental support. We go at a pace that supports you and your baby so I allow plenty of time for questions and recapping the massage sequence.

The yoga:
Baby yoga is a dynamic and fun extension of baby massage. It offers quality physical stimulation through rhythmical movement and stretches, new ideas for holding and carrying your baby and playful communication through rhymes and song. Postnatal yoga offers you creative ways to exercise whilst being with your baby. It promotes healing and recovery after giving birth and offers you a chance to unwind and resource yourself.

Babies of any age up to crawling are welcome. Massage oil is provided. Please bring a towel for your baby to lie on. Space for prams is very limited.

“I now massage Heidi before bath- she just loves the touch and it’s our most calm and precious time together.” Sophie

Mum-Baby Yoga Classes

Mum and Baby Yoga
with Laura Gilmore

A chance for mum and baby to enjoy the benefits of yoga and interact in a joyful way. Mums benefit from postures to aid postnatal recovery, alongside deep relaxation techniques. Babies development is supported every step of the way with suitable yoga poses, songs and movement. Baby yoga relieves common ailments such as colic, wind, constipation, develops muscle tone and co-ordination and promotes deep sleep.

Classes are taught in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with the understanding that sometimes babies just need to feed, cuddle or sleep whilst others crave lots of physical stimulation and the chance to practice their latest developmental skills. The yoga is suitable for beginners as well as those with more experience and is a safe and appropriate form of exercise for the postnatal period.

Please bring a blanket for your baby to lie on. We have large blankets for softness, but prefer these to be covered with baby's own for hygiene reasons. All the yoga equipment is provided.

"My baby seems to sleep better on the night after a class, as well as having a good sleep straight afterwards" Camille, mother of Savigne, 5 months.

"You helped me to remember that I need to look after myself, I feel much better after the class." Helen, mother of Harriet, 4 months.

Ashtanga Yoga

The most physically challenging form of yoga, this flowing sequence of postures is threaded together on the breath. The practice is designed to cleanse and purify the physical body and nervous system in preparation for the practices of meditation and pranayama. The specific features of this practice are the continued awareness of breath to carry you in a "vinyasa" system throughout the practice. This gives a meditative quality to the movement: over time the breath itself carries you through the postures. The practitioner learns to use specific energetic locks or "bandhas" to stimulate movement of energy through the body and to focus the mind by engaging specific focal points for the eyes ("drishti").

Ashtanga Vinyasa is traditionally taught as a 6 day a week practice with classes in the early morning. This is a way of transforming your life, your energy levels, your physique and your mind- creating stillness through breath awareness.

Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy Yoga
with Laura Gilmore

These classes provide a nurturing, supportive environment for pregnant women to share and embrace their journey through pregnancy to motherhood. Yoga during this time prevents and remedies common problems you may experience such as backache and restricted breath.

You will work according to your own energy levels and need to maintain strength and fitness during pregnancy. The practices allow the body to open gently, to release physical tension and to recognise and work through emotional fears in preparation for birth. Through the practice you will become more in tune with your own body and breath and learn how to use these skills towards a positive, empowering birth experience.

Students may begin course at anytime from week 13 of pregnancy.
Pre-booking is essential.
You may start this course on the Sunday of your choice.
You then commit to 8 consecutive weeks from that date.
Classes must be taken consecutively to avoid over-subscription

"The pregnancy yoga classes were certainly the best thing that I did for myself whilst pregnant. Not only did the sciatic-type pain that had been dogging me for months disappear, but the warm nurturing at the classes really touched me each week. It was a protected space to slow down and connect with my experience, myself and my baby. I often felt quite close to tears by the end of the classes, having opened up to the daunting and amazing reality that I was pregnant! So thankyou! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your classes, which you, in particular, made so right for me in a weird and wonderful time." Jael
