Yoga for Women, Woman-Aligned & Pregnancy

*RETURNS THURSDAY 9 SEPTEMBER 2021*

Thursdays, 10am-11am London Time, via zoom

WHAT TO EXPECT
In this class, we share practices that are empowering, grounding and gleeful with you, creating space for you to thrive and flourish. We can begin to see this practice as a vital movement which enables space, community and time to acknowledge your experiences, cultivating a deep awareness of yourself and your body.

Despite approximately 80% of yoga practitioners in the UK being female, contemporary yoga is largely built upon a foundation and understanding of anatomy and alignment for men, by men. This isn’t to say that we should leave behind our dynamic, strength & heat building practices. Instead, perhaps there is the opportunity to explore a complement that is more grounded in experiences of women and woman-aligned, appropriate for all stages and cycles of life.

In general, this is a slower, softer class, which combines meditation, pranayama (breath practices), yoga postures and gentle somatic movement to help you attune to your body, cultivating ease and space.

WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR
This class is for you if you identify as a woman or woman-aligned (this is intended to be language which includes trans women, genderqueer people and femmes), it is fully-accessible if you a pregnant or postpartum, are menstruating or experiencing endometriosis. This class does not include prone (front-lying) or supine (back-lying) positions.

WHAT YOU NEED
A yoga mat (maybe, a carpeted floor is also probably fine!), a strap/belt/scarf, a blanket, a yoga bolster or a large cushion, and a block are all nice to have, plus anything else you like to have for your yoga practise.

HOW MUCH
Single class – £8
5 Class Pass (Community Price) – £35

Restorative Yoga

*NEW: COMMENCES TUESDAY 7 SEPTEMBER 2021*

Tuesdays, 4:30-5:30pm London Time, via zoom

WHAT TO EXPECT
Join Harriet for a 60 minute class, dedicated to rest, replenishing and grounding.

You can expect to rest in 3-4 postures each class, beginning with more upright/seated postures to help us unravel our days/bodies/minds, and ease into reclining postures, which a long savasana.

This class spends more time in postures (anywhere from 2-5 or 15-20 minutes) and also offers more silence from the teacher. We provide a playlist if you’d like to have background music playing. 

WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR
Suitable for beginners through to experienced practitioners and yoga teachers. Something for everyone with opportunities to tone up or down depending on your mood, energy levels and needs. This class will involve some prone (i.e. front lying) postures, so modifications will be offered if you are pregnant. Feel free to contact us if you have a specific question or concern you’d like to chat through.

WHAT YOU NEED
All the comfy props! We’d recommend: 

  • A yoga mat
  • 2 bolsters (one round and one rectangular is ideal)

Teacher's Co-Practice with Theo Wildcroft: Second Series

Due to the popularity of the first series of this co-practice, we are delighted to announce that, in collaboration with Nourish, Theo Wildcroft is looking for a second small group of yoga teachers to join her on a yearlong, once a month journey into collaborative practice together. Each month’s practice will be accompanied by a resource or two, chosen to help us explore a theme together. We will meet up on Zoom where Theo will lead us through a gently-led, shared practice of invitations and suggestions to guide our collaborative exploration. After the practice, we will have time to talk and share.

Themes will include:

  • Rooting, resilience and rising together;
  • Pushing edges, finding centres;
  • Balance in movement and stillness;
  • and Journeys and travelling.

This offer is open to any yoga or movement teacher. We are looking for a small but committed group who miss the community of moving together without moving in unison. Sessions will feel gentle, contemplative, relaxed and physically accessible.

This series begins in May, and spaces are very limited.
