Join Kate on a dark, cosy, winter evening to explore chanting & singing bowls.

This workshop will be a light & enjoyable evening of teachings, sound & restorative yoga. Kate will introduce the topic & explain the meaning of the chants that you will practice with her, followed by restorative poses & the sound of Kate's own singing bowls & drums. You don't need to 'have a good singing voice', you don't even have to make a noise. Simply be open to learning & experiencing something new, the joy of chanting & relaxing together. 

We have loads of soft, warm blankets, cushions, bolsters & props. The studio will be candlelit, smelling divine & calm, the right environment for the deeply relaxing vibrations of the chants & bowls to wash over you. A perfect evening to refresh & retune your body-mind in readiness for a beautiful weekend ahead of you.

This gentle, non-judgmental workshop introduces the idea that we have a choice in the way we live in our bodies. So many of us rely on our habit-patterns - we can't remember when we started but now, we've been doing it so long, we can't seem to stop. Yoga calls these habit-patterns 'Samskara', if we become so ingrained in our patterns that they alter our body chemistry, we may find we physically cannot stop.

Habit-patterns might include food issues, starving or overeating, bingeing (on anything & feeling shame or guilt because of it), debting, shopping, drinking, relationships, gambling, using drugs prescribed or otherwise, over-exercising, co-dependency, love-avoidance & a whole lot more. Anything in fact that we might use to change the way we feel. This workshop may also be helpful to those who live with or love people who seemingly cannot stop repeating unhelpful life-patterns.

When we practice yoga, we attune to our body & our breath, we can learn to take ownership for the way we feel & gain control over our actions, we can recognise our cravings when they occur & not attempt to avoid them or give in to them, we may be more able to cope with & manage these feelings if we are more physically aware of them when they occur.

Easy yoga, followed by a factfilled presentation on brain chemsitry & yoga's suggestions for habit-patterns, followed by yoga nidra & relaxation.

No. 1 Question asked by students in their first two years of finding yoga - Am I doing it right?

In these 120 minute workshops suitable for teachers, long term practitioners & those new to yoga, Lucy will deconstruct four familiar postures & then help you reconstruct them with renewed attention to detail.

Asana Lab will take you on a journey through the asanas, helping you discover new ways of transitioning through postures & discovering what suits you prop & modification-wise, in each pose. The aim being to find your own way to feel stable & light in the poses.
