Advanced Booking for Specialist Classes

For the first time, we are also running a few “pay to enter” workshops with well-known teachers including Esther Ekhart, Mark Freeth, Emily-Clare Hill and Tanja Mickwitz who are all internationally renown teachers and we’re honoured to have them join our teaching team this year. See below for the workshops this year:

ESTHER EKHART: DEEPENING THE YOGA EXPERIENCE
Saturday 11:30 – 14:00

Esther will guide you through a nourishing and insightful journey of asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy.
Yoga is an awareness practice, a practice you feel, not think about. Learn how to bypass the mind, to tap into your feelings rather than your thoughts. This way you start to experience the stillness around and within you that underlies everything, even when you are actively moving. Expect to flow, work on mobility and stability and sit still. All levels welcome, but not for complete beginners.

This workshop has a recommended donation of £10 to attend.


TANJA MICKWITZ LAKSHMI MYTHICAL FLOW – A RASA YOGA MASTERCLASS

Saturday 16:15 – 18:00

Enjoy a complete soulful vinyasa practice weaving the mythology of Lakshmi, the goddess of beauty, abundance and unconditional love. Mythical Flow is Tanja Mickwitz’s unique signature class incorporating storytelling into asana practice. Immerse yourself in the magical world of Indian myths, Gods and Goddesses – the symbolism of the myths is really about what happens within ourselves and connecting to different deity energies allows us to reflect over how these different aspects of ourselves shape our behaviour and who we are in the world. Through the tools of practice we can invoke exactly what we need to act more skilfully and live more fully. Suitable for beginners.
This workshop has a recommended donation of £5 to attend.

EMILY CLARE YOGA: BRINGING LIGHT TO THE SOUL

Sunday 11:45 – 13:15

Emily-Clare brings her knowledge of movement, yoga and anatomy to build a sequence to perfect balance. Expect all aspects of yoga to be woven through this creative space, there’ll be physical challenge with a spiritual sparkle. Suitable for beginners.
This workshop has a recommended donation of £5 to attend.

 

MARK FREETH: SHAKE SOME ACTION! A FREESTYLE YOGA PROJECT WORKSHOP
Sunday 13:30 – 15:30

Mark will take you on a thrilling ride through some groovy strength/mobility/stamina/ agility/endurance-promoting, movement-orientated sequences (rather than heavy on the static positions) that will challenge you (in a positive way!) and leave you feeling exhilarated & walking away like a superhero! All welcome! From whatever discipline & whatever level. But PLEASE – bring TONS of energy, a HUGE sense of humour and a WIDE open mind. Mask & cape optional… Suitable for beginners.
This workshop has a recommended donation of £5 to attend.
