Yoga for Women, Woman-Aligned & Pregnancy

Tuesdays, 19:00-20:00 London Time, via zoom

Classes will be back soon!

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

Restorative Yoga

Tuesdays, 20:15-21:15 London Time, via zoom

Classes will be back soon!

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)
    • Alternative: sofa cushions have a good firmness
  • 2-4 yoga bricks
    • Alternative: large heavy books
  • 5-6 cotton or wool yoga blankets
    • Alternative: any thick blanket at home, or large towels

Teacher's Co-Practice with Theo Wildcroft

After 18 months of collaborative practice, diving deep into resources from poetry, somatic exploration, and academic research, Theo Wildcroft is relaunching her Teachers’ Practice. This time, the practice will run as two courses of 6 months each. Students can take each course in either order. Each month’s practice consists of practice and discussion, accompanied by multiple resources, on themes that build to deepen both your practice, and your teaching. The sessions are on Zoom, and while they are recorded, we strongly recommend you attend live when you can. This is an immersive, shared and collaborative exploration, open to any yoga or movement teacher. Sessions will feel gentle, contemplative, relaxed and physically accessible. We will move together without moving in unison. Students from the first cohorts of this practice will find much of value to return to. Join us – this is research in action.

This class is open to any yoga, movement, dance, somatic teachers. If you are interested and would like to chat to us first please contact the Nourish team.

Teachers’ practice 1: Sensing the self

This course will unpack the nature of transformation and integration in practice, the hidden assumptions behind our choices and preferences and what we think ‘good’ practice looks like, and what it really means to come together, to stand and be counted, as a community of yoga practice.

Teachers’ practice 2: Telling untold stories

This course will unpack the somatic experiences hidden in our language, the way awareness is born in sensation and movement, how everything from our neurology to our species shapes our world, and the journeys we can take people on, with the power of rhythm and a good story.
