In the first part we will flow in and out of the asanas allowing them to work as gateways, portals to bring us back to our inner, open nature and especially to Mother Earth. Through the five elements of: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space we will explore new ways of moving: in spirals, up high and down low. During the workshop we will learn how to utilise and relate the quality of the elements to our bodies and later on, in the more philosophical part, to our every day living.
No experience necessary! Just bring an open mind and a willingness to explore new possibilities. The rest is the past. The present is NOW and the future is what you make it..
It is with great humility and gratitude that i am able to announce that the wonderful Jenny Bliss Bennett will play live music and sing at this event.
Understanding Any Asana
Delving into his own system of understanding any asana, join Dan as we explore the simple elements that construct every asana you have ever practised as well as asana that are yet to be invented!
There is nothing magical or mystical about seemingly difficult yoga positions. For the most part we are held back by one of three simple elements which Dan refers to as the M.A.P of yoga asana.
Underlying this MAP is the idea that if we understand certain principles about the body, the brain and alignment then we will approach our physical yoga practice much more logically and struggle far less.
In this session of investigation, using a range of teaching tools, theory and practical experimentation we will look at topics as diverse as motivation for practice; tensional integrity and alignment; muscle memory and proprioception and body proportions.
Get ready to take an entirely new look at your yoga practice.

Transformational Breath Workshop
Charity Yin-Yang Workshop for HOOP Peru
with Melissa Zelaya
9 April 2.30-5.30pm
Cost: Minimum £15 donation
This workshop has been requested, and organised by, one of our regular students, Stefania. For information, booking and payment please contact her directly on 07802716749 or Stefania_90@yahoo.it.
Join our Peruvian-themed charity Yoga workshop for HOOP Peru and help improve other people’s lives while doing something amazing for yourself. This 3-hour workshop will be combining the two mutually complementary energies of life; Yin & Yang.
Your teacher Melissa will guide you through a supercharged vinyasa practice, Rocket Yoga. This is a strong, yang form of yoga, designed by Larry Shultz to create incredible strength, flexibility and balance.
The second part of the workshop will be based on a healing Yin Yoga practice. Yin Yoga is based on long-held poses where muscles are completely relaxed to allow us to access the deeper layers of the body. It works on releasing constrictions in the connective tissue, ligaments, and tendons that support the joints.
In this nurturing workshop Melissa will take you through a specific series of seated & supine poses. By breaking up blockages you’ll encourage the easier flow of energy around the body, moving you out of negative emotions. You’ll discover balance and find a deep peace in your body & mind.
The last part of the workshop will be dedicated to guided Meditation and Pranayama. Pranayama is the formal practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our prana, or vital life force.
YO-MU Restorative Yoga Flow, Live Cello & Soothing Beats Workshop
with Lucy and Pepe Arias
Sunday 9 July 3-4.30pm
‘’Since both music and yoga can induce a transcendent state of mind, it’s only natural that combining the two will maximize your bliss’’
Based in Barcelona, Spain, for over two years Lucy, (London Contemporary Dance school graduate & Yoga teacher) and Pepe Arias (Cellist & electronic composer from Chile), have been developing their project YO-MU to offer a unique Yoga Flow and Live music workshop that aims to get you out of your head and into your body. This is an integration of music and yoga asana that aims to heal you from the inside out. The cello has the same tonal vibrations as the body and is used extensively in music therapy, combined with yoga asana the tones of the cello are easily digested into the body and helps to lead us back to our breathe. In this workshop we will move from deep breathing relaxation into gentle yoga postures to stretch and release the layers of the day accompanied by soothing guitar and voice melodies. The session culminates with a deep relaxation to the cello and head massage. A perfect introduction to yoga asana, or for those who want to take it slow, this session is open to all levels and music lovers alike.
