September Back to Basics Workshop!

IMG_1825

Our next workshop is in the diary for Saturday 26th September from 2.30 – 5pm.  This Back To Basics workshop will be led by Allison and Heini and will breakdown the Sun Salutations and Vinyasa Flow as well as some of our key poses from the hot Yoga and Hot Vinyasa sequences.

We will study the purpose of each pose, look at correct alignment and muscles groups used, and will cover hints and tips to enable students to safely develop their practice.  This workshop is ideal for students who are familiar with many of our poses, but would like to improve their technique and develop their practice further.

This will be an interactive session with lots of time for questions and discussion and will finish with some gentle stretches and a long Savasana, leaving you feeling relaxed and energised.

This workshop will be limited to 15 students and will cost £25.  Pre-payment is required to book your place,  we recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment!

**Please note that the studio owners are holding an all-day event at Gathering Essence studio on Sunday 27th September so we will not be able to hold any of our regular Sunday classes that weekend**

Thursday 27th August

6.15pm Hot Vinyasa & Yoga Mixed Class – a dynamic vinyasa flow with some of our favourite balancing and floor poses from our Hot yoga sequence, a full body workout and a great way to try out a vinyasa style class if you’ve not tried one before.

7.30pm Hot Yin – this is a slow paced class where each pose is held for 3-4 minutes to stretch both the muscles and the deep and connective tissues.  These long stretches focus on key areas around the spine, hips, shoulders and knees.  Modifications are given for poses so that each student can find their own maximum stretch.  Yin yoga can start to release tensions held within the body and will leave you feeling deeply relaxed.

Don’t forget that we have a change to our regular timetable on the weekend of Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th June.  The owners of our studio hold a full-day workshop on the last Sunday of June and so we are not able to hold our regular classes.  We will therefore be running 3 classes on Saturday 27th June and NO CLASSES on Sunday 28th June.  Our timetable for Saturday 27th is as follows:

1.15pm Hot Yoga

2.30pm Hot Yin

3.45pm hot Vinyasa

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience, we will be back to normal the following weekend!
