Workshops

Our workshops offer members the opportunity to explore more unique and different styles of yoga, outside that of our weekly timetable. Different yogis come in and share their knowledge and practices. This can range from both balances to meditation, through to form adjustment sessions and specific muscle groups (eg. hip-opening, core, back).

Our upcoming workshop will focus on utilising the science behind yoga and hypnosis to help calm anxieties and deepen your practice. Kirsty Dickson will guide you through a 90 minute practice on Tuesday the 16th February 17.30-19.00. This workshop will be a strong vinyasa practice that pauses in restorative postures to delve into the science behind how yoga is benefitting you. Kirsty will also help you to begin carrying out self-hypnosis and highlight forms of pranayama which can deepen and shape your consciousness and awareness.

 

Tickets are just £5 and can be booked here:
