Mandala Yoga Flow with Alison Lane
Saturday 9th October 2021
11.45am-1.15pm
Studio & Online 

£15

Blooming symmetrically outwards from their centre, mandalas are sacred circles, representing harmony and infinite wholeness.  Mandalas have long been used as a point of focus for meditation –as their bold and beautiful designs soothe and fully absorb the mind.

Our meditation will lead gently in to a yoga flow in which, inspired by the balance and symmetry of Mandalas, will move in a circular sequence, 360° around our mat.  Establishing a connection between movement and breath, we will enjoy a meditative quality to our flow, further nourishing the sense of tranquility and wellbeing established in meditation.

Meditating upon Mandalas has many benefits;

  • Increases inner peace and calm
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Relaxes the nervous system
  • Improves sleep
  • Boosts creativity
  • Assists concentration
  • Decreases mental “chatter”
  • Releases emotional and mental tension
  • Enhances clarity and perspective

The Hog with Natalie Green
Sunday 7th November 2021
12.15pm – 1.45pm
Studio & Online 
£12.50
Back by popular demand! Have you seen the spiky piece of equipment in the studio that looks like a hedgehog? This is what we call The Hog. It was originally designed to be used as a back stretcher and a foam roller but has since been adapted to use in Pilates classes! Yippee!!! There are hundreds of exercise variations that can be done on The Hog. Some of you may remember using it in some of our classes pre-covid. In this 90 minute Pilates based workshop we will use The Hog to improve our flexibility, mobility, stability, balance, reaction and strength and of course, we will have lots of fun!
Headstands and Handstands with Gaby Cooke
Saturday 20th November 2021
2pm – 3.30pm
Studio Only
£12.50
Whether you are a regular aerialist and are missing the upside down world or you just fancy a new challenge, join Gaby for this accessible and fun workshop. You will be guided through a yoga flow to warm up and cool down. The middle section of class includes basic drills to increase your strength and mobility, preparing your body for some time to play!
For the class you will need both wall and mat space to dig into inversion poses, and there will be lots of options. Those with a strong practice will be given alternative ways to shake things up and if you’re new you will be made to feel safe and supported as you explore.
If there’s a little voice inside of you saying “what if I fall?” I dare you to reply “what if I fly!”. Losing our balance is part of the fun and reminds us not to take our practice so seriously. Are you in?

The Saturday workshops are brilliant. It's a lovely place. Very welcoming. I wish it was closer as I'd do so many of the classes
