Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga.

You'll be guided through a modified sequence based on the Primary Series sequence of postures practiced and taught by the late K. Pattabhi Jois at a slower pace, and with some instruction and demonstration.

Generally we will cover the first half of the Primary Series sequence before enjoying a very well deserved relaxation but may sometimes explore the trickier postures if time and energy allow.

Ashtanga Yoga combines a series of traditional yoga postures that you’ll probably recognise with fluid movements and a focus on breathing regularly and deeply. It’s a physically demanding sequence designed to create heat and maximise energy flow, improve flexibility, strengthen the body, increase circulation and get the heart and lungs working too.

Healing and balancing the physical body like this helps bring about good health and vitality, a clear mind and a calm approach to life’s daily obstacles.

This class is suitable for those with some experience of yoga but new to Ashtanga, for those with some Ashtanga experience who enjoy more instruction or for beginners with a good level of fitness and who are willing to give it a go!

Friday 10th August

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 yoga workshop is 80's- TASTIC and 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. The workshop will conclude with a tranquil guided meditation allowing you to enter into a state of deep relaxation and stillness.
 
Old skool music (dressing up is optional!) to get you out of your mind and into your body! Raw treats (courtesy of Ruth's Raw Kitchen), snacks, refreshments and chat will be available afterwards.

Hips Hips Hooray 

Saturday 25th August

10-12noon

£18/16

I'll be running another juicy hip opening masterclass. 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.

Sun 26th August

11am-1pm

£22/18

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.

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.

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 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.
