Studio Closure from 21st March

Dear Yoga community

Please note that our studio timetable will close for 2 weeks, starting Saturday 21st March.

In this time we will do a deep clean of our studio and also create a plan for on-going classes. We will also hope to offer some classes while closed via ZOOM. Please look out for notice of these – we don’t want you not practicing! It will be a novel way to keep up your yoga and to feel that you’re a vital part of the community. We will also band together a group of *connectors* who will be available to look out for anyone who is self-isolating, our elderly or anyone needing a little tender loving care at this time.

Looking forward to keeping in contact with you (albeit on-line or by phone for a bit, as I will in isolation myself for 2 weeks, having been in Australia) and also in bringing back classes for you in a mindful and safe way at this rare time.

I would encourage everyone to develop a simple and daily deep, calm breathing and meditation practice. Perhaps this is one of the first things we could share via ZOOM.

Keep things local, enjoy your own home, stay in telephone or on-line contact with friends and family. Commune with nature and live simply. All good things.

Namaste all.

Support Matters

When we feel supported, we feel safe, we can rest. Discover through an embodied and mindful Yin Yoga practice how to get support by the elements that surround you. Teresa will guide us into an experiential journey to fine-tune yoursenses enabling you to identify your needs and craves beyond your superimposed conditionings. The practice of Yin Yoga promotes the stimulation of the connective tissue in the body where we hold the accumulated tension from our physical, psychological and emotional fatigue. Useful variations to simple exercises aim to improve our relationship with the floor, your body and the props, the breath and even your intention, reconnecting our parasympathetic nervous system, bringing us calm and freedom. We will be encouraged and enabled to be creative and playful to find out the most effective expression of the proposed asana.
