Hips Hips Hooray 

Friday 4th May

6-8pm

£18/16

I'll be running another juicy hip opening masterclass on Friday 4th May. I love working into the hips - we hold so much tension in this area from sitting a lot, poor posture or injury. It's also the place we store our emotions so it's good to get moving deep into this area to release tension and stagnant energy.

I'll be combining some gentle flow and longer held yin postures to work deep into the hips - oiling the joints to allow you to move more freely. The class will finish with a lovely yoga nidra leaving you relaxed and restored.

Exploring the Chakras Workshop

with Carla Webster

Friday 18th May 5.30-7.45pm £22

During this workshop you'll be offered an introduction to Kundalini yoga. We will be moving our awareness through the seven main chakras of the body, practicing postures, chanting, mudras and pranayamas to enliven and balance each one. The session will culminate in a long meditation to help harness the Kundalini energy. Come along to find out more about the subtle energies of the body and how it can powerfully help to deepen your yoga practice. Namaste!

Sadly, more and more people have to rely on food banks to feed themselves and their families. Our event is called We Are One to remind us that we are all connected and that none of us should ever have to go hungry. The staff at Hamilton District Food bank do a wonderful job, and I'd like us to do all we can to help them purchase the foods and sundries required to keep their stock up. For ideas of preferred donation items please click here: https://hamiltondistrict.foodbank.org.uk/2015/12/23/6-unexpected-things-foodbanks-need/ 
You are welcome to donate here:  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/pranayogastudio or give cash on the day in exchange for your class or you can donate foodstuffs at the studio or any donations towards prizes would be warmly welcomed.

Hope to see you there!

Katie Boyle is back at Prana with her first Forrest Yoga Morning Intensives.

Dive Deeper Within 
These 2-hour morning intensive practices involve a short ceremony of intent setting, drumming and song, followed by a luxurious 90-minute Forrest Yoga asana practice. 

In each morning intensive, we will work with a different intent in order to weave a healing thread through our practice and use the time on the mat to build connection to our inner self. The poses will be sequenced to engage the core, build strength, awaken the senses, stimulate feeling in the body and deepen connection to the intent. 

The ceremony element of the practice will get us grounded and bring the wisdom of the Four Directions (North, South, East and West) into the practice. The drumming and song will raise our energy and help us prepare for the healing work that we will do in the asana practice.

Prerequisites?
This practice is open to all levels. Pose variations will be offered to make the practice both challenging and accessible. Some experience of Forrest Yoga is recommended but not essential. It is suitable for anyone with a regular practice in another yoga discipline and those who are physically fit.

Other requirements include:
A willingness to work in a gently heated room. 
An open mind and curious spirit.

Whether your a novice or an experienced yogi the emphasis of this workshop is on enjoyment and individuality. Yoga doesn’t have to be perfect it just has to be fun! This workshop will leave you feeling uplifted and energised, and at the same time allowing you to feel grounded and rooted to your inner self. Keeping an asana alive with breath and natural movement allows us to relax, open, soften and explore the body and mind with self acceptance. 
Energising sequences to uplifting energetic beats will help to stretch and strengthen both body and mind.
Get out of your mind and into your body. 
The workshop will conclude with a tranquil guided meditation allowing you to enter into a state of deep relaxation and stillness. 
 
Raw treats (courtesy of Ruth's Raw Kitchen), snacks, refreshments and chat will be available afterwards 
 

Cat is a yogi with a passion for life and a love for yoga, her intention is to make yoga accessible and fun to all encouraging a healthy mind body connection. Cat believes in practicing what she preaches and has the opinion that yoga isn’t about how flexible you are or how an asana looks, it’s about how it feels in that moment. 
Her classes are interesting, encouraging in a light hearted yet nurturing playful way.

We are now offering Seasonal Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training (RYT200) Accredited by Yoga Alliance International

SYTT HAMILTON

This 200 hour course is designed to help you explore Yoga on and off the mat. We will support the growth of your understanding of the postures, breath, and anatomy. And just as importantly, we would like you to learn more about your mind, impulses, relationships, happiness, through the theory of Yoga and its application into your every day life.

This is the first level of teacher training and is open to all those who are starting their teaching journey, or wish to develop their Yoga practice with a structured course.

It is called Seasonal Yoga because we teach how to harmonise your yoga practice and energy with the seasons, drawing from the Chinese cyclical understanding of nature, to create more of a balance within our lives.

The course includes Yogic philosophy (in particular, Patanjali's yoga sutras), Asanas (postures), Kriyas (purification techniques), Pranayamas (breathing techniques), Mantra, Anatomy and Physiology, Meditation (The Self Enquiry method of Ramana Maharishi), the energy systems of the body, Chi Gung and other traditional energy practices. The practice focuses on the Vinyasa styles of Seasonal Flow and Ashtanga Yoga, although you will also gain experience of Yoga for special circumstances, yoga for children, kundalini yoga, and more. We also cover nutrition, N.L.P., how to run your classes, David Keil's anatomy course and much, much more.

We provide you with 2 comprehensive manuals, a Seasonal Yoga book, Seasonal Yoga DVDs, year-long access to SYTT online resources and a log book as part of your course.

The Seasonal Yoga Teacher training course meets and exceeds the National Educational Standards of Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. You will be a Registered Yoga Teacher upon completion.

This training is for you if:

  • You have been practising yoga for at least 2 years and want to know more in detail about postures, anatomy and physiology.
  • You would like to go deeper into the asana, philosophy, anatomy, and seasonal information.
  • You would like to truly understand what a seasonal practice is and how it can help everyone to live happier, healthier lives.
  • You desire to solidify your meditation practice and understanding of the chakra system.
  • You want to teach Yoga asana, Seasonal flows, meditation, pranayama techniques and Yoga Nidra.
  • You would like to spend a year with like minded Yogis, studying and discussing Yoga over delicious breakfasts after a great practice.


This course will take place on one weekend on average every 4 weeks, over 12 modules. 

We are authorised to certify you as a 200 RYT on Yoga alliance, on completing and passing our course.
