Yoga Flows for Body, Breath & Just Being – Saturday 6th October

‘Yoga Flow’ or ‘Flow Yoga’ is generally associated with a flow of movement, from one yoga posture to another. This full day workshop with Chris Noon, will certainly include flows of movement, pausing at times… to be and to breathe. However, the main aim of the day, will be to create a flow of awareness through our practice.

In the posture work we will look at sequences, where one asana (posture) can move into another, and then another. We will practice in a way that enables the breath to flow, without strain or struggle, in whichever technique we are using. When the breath flows in pranayama, it truly becomes an energy practice. The time when the benefit of pranayama for body & mind becomes apparent! In meditation, we aim to create an unbroken flow of concentration. This takes time and a whole lot of practice. Preparing the ground for meditation will be integral to the day.

We’re delighted to be welcoming Chris back to the studio this Autumn. Chris runs the Sheffield Yoga School with his partner Hannah Penn. He is a much loved and highly respected teacher, who makes the ancient teachings of yoga practical and accessible for modern life.

Suitable for students with a little or a lot of practice, the day will include yoga asana, pranayama and guided meditation . The day will focus on creating a balanced practice to cultivate a sense of harmony within us. As we learn to let go, we become stronger and more resilient. Over time we begin to appreciate more fully the wonder and the flow of life – this is Yoga.

10:00-16:00 £40 —> BOOK NOW   *** Note: Booking closes Wednesday 3rd October ***
Please bring a packed lunch, alternatively there are a number of local cafes and sandwich shops within a few minutes walk of the studio. There will be tea, coffee and biscuits.


Women’s Moon Circle – Friday 26th October

Moon circles are an ancient way of gathering women so that individually and collectively we can feel safe, heard, seen, loved and received for exactly the women we are and for the woman we may want to be. It’s the perfect place to come to create connection with yourself and with others in our warm, inviting and sacred sisterhood.

Our circles are led by Sharlene Belusevic, who has spent the last fifteen years learning, transforming, growing and training in the field of holistic personal development. Sharlene loves creating opportunities for women to experience feminine empowerment, allowing women to blossom and grow in their own right.

Each of our monthly circles has a theme. The theme for our October circle is Open to Abundance with the Empress.

This month we’ll be invoking the Empress, so that as women, we can call in and claim new levels of abundance. Our relationship with abundance is unique and powerful. How is it we can open to increased levels of abundance and flow in our lives? What would that look and feel like for you to create new opportunities for you to receive so that you can truly thrive?

As women, we deserve to flourish and in our circle this month, we will be invoking the Empress to support us as we learn how we can open and create new found levels of abundance and riches in our lives.

Candlelit Yoga for the Full Moon – Friday 23rd November

In yoga the moon represents the feminine energy within us, it’s qualities are said to be fluid, creative, calming and reflective. It influences the water element of nature, affecting tidal levels, the growth of plants and our own internal cycles. The more we become attuned to the cycle of the moon, the greater our understanding of the way we experience these changes. At the full moon there is a heightened sense of creativity, energy and activity. 

Wrapped up in the warmth of the studio and starting late, we will enjoy an evening of candlelit yoga with light of the full moon shining brightly in the dark night sky. Our practice will be inspired by these qualities. Centred around Chandra Namaskar. The evening will be flowing and mindful in nature and will include asana, mantra, meditation and guided relaxation. Filled with candles and toasty warm this will be a wonderful way to create a sense of peace and restore energy levels in the last weeks of Autumn.

Tools for Inner Peace – Saturday 1st December

When the mind is silent and peaceful it becomes very powerful. However, this inner silence can never arise when there is a continual stream of thoughts, feelings and emotions. Pulled this way and that, the state of inner peace we strive for, may be replaced by a feeling of being carried along by the tide.

Practiced regularly, yoga encourages us to explore our true potential. By tapping in to the innate wisdom within us, we can allow ourselves to connect with the sense of stillness and pure joy, so often masked by the overwhelming commitments of our daily lives. Taught by Claire Thomas, the day will focus on bringing steadiness to body and mind, creating space for us to connect with the quality of inner peace within.

A practical day, suitable for new and experienced students alike, we will explore a range of tools from the yogic tradition. The day will include yoga asana, simple breath practices, mantra, guided deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and simple meditation practice. You will be encouraged to take one (or more!) of the practices home with you, if you wish. 

10:00-16:00 £40 —> BOOK NOW
Please bring a packed lunch, alternatively there are a number of local cafes and sandwich shops within a few minutes walk of the studio. There will be tea, coffee and biscuits.
