Rest and restore with an introduction into restorative yoga followed by a calming and replenishing relaxation. Life is increasingly busy and our minds are often cluttered, overwhelmed and lacking in clarity and tranquility. Restorative yoga is a calming hug for the overstimulated body and mind, creating peace and serenity within. It gives us the opportunity to explore our body seeking out tensions. 

A deep connection with our breath and long supported postures help the body relax feeling comfortable, confident and safe. Our bodies start to unfold with no force, rushing or striving. We then begin to explore what happens we allow our tension to soften and naturally release what our bodies habitually hold. Restorative yoga is a gentle yet mindful practice, with the use of props restorative yoga allows you to completely surrender and relax into an asana. In a loving yet nurturing way. The parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated promoting relaxation, renewal And rejuvenation. If we offer the body patience, kindness and surrender to the present moment it will respond in a more positive way. The more we surrender the easier things flow. Restorative Yoga benefits Enhances flexibility Deeply relaxes the body Stills the mind Improves the capacity for healing and balancing Balances the nervous system Boosts the immune system Enhances mood state Develops qualities of compassion and understanding towards others and self.

Autumn - Time for letting go. 

Just as the trees shed their leaves we let go of the things that no longer serve us, clearing the way for new opportunities, new experiences. As we move through our yoga flow we’ll be focussing on the breath, drawing in the positive and releasing the negative from our lives. Setting our sights on the good things we want to draw into our lives. There’ll also be pranayama practice, meditation and a yoga nidra to leave you relaxed and restored as we move into the more yin seasons.

Go easy on yourself, smile, dream big, go wild in your imagination...

For moon gazers and all women yearning for time to connect with themselves and the ebb and flow of the lunar and life cycle. Gather together each month for lunar flow yoga, specific to the New Moon. Take time and space to listen, reflect and connect with your thoughts and feelings. “The wild soul knows what to do and when to do it-but only when we listen”, Clarissa Pinkola Estes. 

In the darkness of the New Moon shine the light inwards on you. Let your thoughts and feelings be your compass and the lunar cycle be your timetable. For centuries women have felt their powerful connection with the feminine “tha” moon living in harmony with the ebb and flow of filling and emptying, nourishing and releasing.

Each month we will gather and practice:

Specific yoga flow to harmonise the body with the New Moon and the part of life that it represents. 
Quiet our minds to find peace and space to connect the mind, body, soul 
Find focus and clarity - Ask yourself questions and explore the answers in worksheets personal to you, take them away and use the information to focus your actions for the month ahead – what we think we become!.

In this first workshop we are preparing for the new moon on the 9th October which is a great moon to start with as it’s a Libra moon. Libra is all about Balance-the Yin and the Yang the Sun “Ha” and the “Tha” Moon. Shining a light on relationships with others and retaining our own identity. 
Look out for the next date- Friday 2nd November

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 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.
