HEART OPENING YIN WITH CACAO CEREMONY

with Laura Mcdonald
Sunday 10 June at 1pm (2 hours)

Chocolate and Yoga are two Laura's favourite things, so she will combine them in this collaboration with Iren Merdinyan of raw chocolate company Raw Bonbon.
Raw Cacao is a powerful plant medicine that has been used ceremonially for thousands of years across Central and South America. Cacao is unlike other plant medicines in that it doesn’t take you on a journey, but gently supports you wherever you’re at. Cacao is a more subtle energy that works with you based on what’s happening inside. Raw cacao is considered a heart opener due to certain active ingredients and people generally describe cacao as a heart-centered energy because it significantly increases blood flow and generates an expansive feeling, often centered around the heart.
The Workshop will start by drinking ceremonial cacao together and learn more about the cacao plant.
This will be followed by a heart-opening Yin Yoga sequence. The workshop will end with raw chocolate treats and a grounding meditation.

Hippy Therapy TYQ Exclusive

with Michael Eley
Sunday 8 July at 1.30pm (75 min) and every first Sunday of each month thereafter

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.

Sunday Yindulgence

With Laura Mcdonald
4th February 2018, 12.30 - 2.30pm (2 hours)

Take some time for yourself and discover how wonderful it can feel to let go and surrender into a slow Yin practice. With the body supported by props, the muscles can let go and we can allow the pose to sink into the deeper tissues of the body. This benefits us physiologically as we can target the deep fascia and safely exercise our joints, but the emotional and psychological benefits of letting go and accepting 'what is' are huge. Come and find out for yourself with this extended 2 hour practice. Laura studied with Bernie Clark, author of 'The complete guide to Yin Yoga' and 'Your Body, Your Yoga' in Vancouver.

Fire in the belly!  Mahabhuta, the element of fire

with Stewart Glichrist

Sunday 20 May at 1.30pm (2.5 hours)

Hot yoga demands the practitioner generates the heat to increase the suppleness of the body and mind.
With the room as warm as an Indian morning the asanas create agni fire in the solar plexus which increases strength and flexibility.
Forward bends are the basis of activating this fire of yogasana. The bhuta (element) associated with manipura bhanda and chakra is agni!
