Hippy Therapy TYQ Exclusive

with Michael Eley
9th September and 14th September at 1.30pm - 75 minutes

A lot of yoga is just sitting around on the floor, in fact that’s where some of the best stuff happens! Sometimes sitting on the floor’s not so easy though, especially if you’ve got tight hips. In fact most of us do because we spend so much time sitting around on chairs. This workshop will concentrate on the hips: whether your goal is to be able to sit in lotus pose for hours on end or just to get up and sit down more easily, you’ll improve strength and flexibility of the hips. Getting the hips to move more freely often takes the pressure off the lower back and knees, and can be therapeutic for the whole body, especially if you spend a lot of time sitting (or cycling or running or lifting heavy weights or gardening or cooking or cleaning or pretty much anything...).
The workshop won’t be held in the heat, and is suitable for all levels.

Kirtan Meditation

Kirtan.jpg

with Cristian and Keiko Liotta
16 September, 1.30pm 90 min

Kirtan is a practice that belongs to the Bhakti Yoga tradition (Yoga of Devotion). It is considered to be the most effective form of meditation, as it reawakens man’s dormant love for the Supreme, by purifying the heart. It was introduced in the West by its foremost modern exponent, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Anyone can participate and benefit from Kirtan, regardless of age, gender, nationality, beliefs or social status.
Keiko and Cristian Liotta, our beloved Jivamukti teachers, are back for one off only Kirtan and meditation event before they move for good to Japan. Join for this farewell of chanting and wish them bon voyage.

Gong Bath 

with Melanie Fismer
7 October at 8pm, 1 hour and every first Sunday of the month thereafter

Relax, release and rejuvenate with the Sound Bath.
Lie down, relax and journey inwards, as Melanie  will guide you through a soothing sound journey. Experience a healing high frequency of gongs, native flutes & shamanic drums, luring you into deep meditative states of sonic bliss...

Everything is made of vibration... everything moves, oscillates, breathes & sings with resonant frequency. Stress, an annoying tube journey, negative thought patterns, traumatic events can knock us all out of alignment...

so relax & receive a soothing sonic tonic that will subtly begin to spin your cells back into harmony.

The gongs send out pressure waves, that stimulate neurones in your frontal cortex - usually only achieved through years of meditation - so the gong takes you into deep theta states, releasing a whole orchestra of happy chemicals into your brain & body...from dopamine, seratonin, endorphins & beyond!

The healing will contribute to balancing out both hemispheres of the brain, stimulating your immune system, releasing toxins from your body & coaxing you into a happier, healthier state of mind...

Inversion Access

with Chris Gillet
21 October at 1.30pm, 2 hours

Access the wisdom and techniques behind Inversions and see without fear what the world looks like upside down. What happens when a house is built on an unstable foundation? Like any structure, inversions are only as strong as their support mechanisms. With the necessary strength, flexibility, balance and technique, we can overcome the fear of going upside down and develop a strong base for our inversions practice. 

In this workshop we will explore the techniques of various inversions focusing on establishing solid foundations which will help build confidence to access these postures and specific variations. Offered as an extended asana practice, we will look at inversions from a number of different perspectives including preparation, technique, execution and modifications. We will begin by warming up the wrists and shoulders, then work on some strengthening exercises.

Next we will move through a graceful vinyasa sequence incorporating various inversions along the way.
Detailed explanations of the techniques will be offered for those working on inversions such as crow pose, tripod headstand, and supported headstand. We will also explore side crow, forearm balances and handstands as well as variations for practitioners with a strong base level inversion practice. 
All levels welcome to this challenging and playful workshop.

TIMELESS SUNDAY YINDULGENCE

Treat yourself to the luxury of time with Laura McDonald
Sunday, 4 November 2018, 1.30 to 4pm, 2.5 hours

This November treat yourself to the luxury of time with an extended Yin Yoga practice that will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and rejuvenated. 
We never seem to have enough of it these days. We are always rushing around, checking off to-do lists and being dictated to by our smartphones.

In the Yin Yoga practice time is the magic ingredient. We hold the postures longer to allow our muscles to relax and to target the deeper tissues of the body. A longer session means more time for the body to unwind and relax, and more time for the mind to relax and let go, aided by the sweet, calming voice of Yin Yoga teacher Laura McDonald.
Yindulge yourself timelessely!
