Kirtan

First Sunday of every month £0 (Free)

Kirtan is the practice of chanting in a group.  The word ‘kirtan’ stems from a Sanskrit root that means ‘to cut through,’ it is a practice for cutting through the idea of separation, for connecting to our hearts and connecting to the moment through sound.

Traditionally, Kirtan is sung in a group with the Kirtan walla, or chant leader, (Tim Rowe) calling out words or phrases, which the group repeats back in kind (call and response). The singing is often accompanied by a harmonium, a freestanding keyboard instrument that sounds similar to an accordion.

In Kirtan, we sing chants that revolve around a particular mantra— a sacred sound formula that has a specific focus and energy.  Mantras are words, phrases, and syllables that are repeated until they become integrated into the chanter’s consciousness. This practice allows you to access inner peace, calm and connection in a fun and joyful way.

Women’s Circle

Held monthly on a Saturday £20
(10% discount for members)

Begin your journey of self-exploration and growth as you are guided and supported through monthly Women’s Circle’s that will be a culmination of shared experiences and connections with others around you as you feel respected, lifted and heard.

Each month will follow a theme, a thread for us to weave into the time we share together. We will open the circle with a meditation and intention, followed by drinking Cacao – a warming drink ethically sourced from the Asháninka tribes of the Peruvian Amazon – to open our hearts and lift our spirit.

Vulnerability – “Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome”.  Brene Brown

Building on February’s theme of Courage, this month we journey into the realm of vulnerability, a word often seen as a weakness.  We will share stories that have left our hearts wide open to vulnerability; what that means to us and how we move from vulnerability to strength and courage.

During the Women’s Circle you will be guided through meditation and taken on a journey of self-exploration and growth as you are surrounded by like-minded women. There are ancient ceremonial elements involved, including a Cacao celebration which will unlock heart-warming states, and allow space for negative emotions to be released while being able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.

Monthly Sound Baths 

Last Sunday of every month £20
(10% discount for members)

Sound Baths allow us to take much-needed time out for ourselves, resulting in a variety of noticeable benefits such as reducing stress, enhancing creativity, releasing emotional blockages and improving our overall wellbeing. Many people express a sense of clarity, freedom and transformation following a sound journey, which can last for a number of days: the key is to arrive with an open mind ready to relax.
This powerful experience creates space for healing on multiple levels, which often leads to a deep state of relaxation. You may find yourself taking an inward journey similar to meditation or simply enjoying the beautiful layers of sound around you.
Attending a Gong Bath can be a very profound and unique experience. As you lay on a yoga mat curled up with your blanket and pillow, you are bathed in waves of sound and vibration from sacred instruments. There is no actual water involved.

What to bring: it is important to be warm and comfortable, so be sure to wear layers and bring anything you feel that would help you to relax i.e. blankets, pillows/cushions, eye masks, socks etc. Remember that you will be lying on the floor for an hour.

Please note each person must have their own account created and a purchase on that account. Please do not purchase tickets for groups of people, each person in the group must have their own account & ticket.

Wild to Wheel
With Tracy Barber

Sunday 24th March
13:30-16:00 £30
(10% discount for members)

In this 2.5hr workshop we will break down two joyful heart opening poses – Wild Thing (Camatkarasana) and Wheel (Chakrasana).  Once the components and confidence foundations of both poses have been laid we will learn how to make the transition from Wild Thing to Wheel tapping into a deep level of physical and mental trust.

 

Camatkarasana, which has an extremely poetic translation “the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart” reflects the joy many experience when practicing this pose.  This pose builds strength and confidence while energising the mind, body and spirit.

 

Chakrasana, a playful pose reminiscent of childhood (crab) energetically connects the legs and pelvis with the arms and shoulders to give you the ability to lift up through the entire body, opening the heart to the sky.

 

Benefits of both postures:

 

  • Opens up chest, lung, and shoulder areas
  • Opens the front of the legs and hip flexors
  • Builds strength in shoulders and upper back
  • Strengthens the and lengthens the vertebrae creating flexibility in the spine
  • Enhances the nervous system and improves hormone secretions that keep your body in optimal health
  • Improves respiration
  • Ignites all seven of the chakras, keeping all the processes of the body in harmony with each other

 

Not suitable for anyone with the following conditions:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Shoulder pain or injury
  • Back or spine injury

Intuitive Eating & Living Workshop
With Pandora Paloma of Rooted Living, author & nutritionist

Saturday 6th April
15:30-18:30
£30
(10% discount for members)

When did we start focusing solely on what we were eating, and forget the why behind the foods we choose?  When did we lose the ability to use our intuition to lead us in life?

Intuitive Eating and Living helps you to become an expert of yourself and find the ability to distinguish between physical and emotional cues of hunger and live a life with satisfaction. It sounds easy but with the modern world adding layers and layers of stress and imbalance, our intuition is fighting its way through the noise.

Pandora Paloma is an Intuitive Living Coach, specialising in Intuitive Eating and Living.

This workshop stands to connect to our deeper intuition. To connect to our bodies. To find true self-love.  To make peace with food.

You will learn:

• How to get back in touch with your body, yourself and your purpose in life

• How to break free from yo-yo dieting and body shaming

• How to love your body un-conditionally, feel body positive and great in your skin

• How to release emotional ties to food and eat more intuitively

• How to connect to your intuition and the tools to let it guide you in life

• How to use meditation and the power of positive thinking

What to expect:

Arrive at 15:30, get comfy, meet Pandora and other like-minded guests.

Pandora will lead us into a ‘finding your intuition’ meditation before you dive into Intuitive eating: the principles followed by Intuitive living: bringing it into life.

After a short break (tea and snacks will be provided) Tracy will lead you into an intuitive yoga class suitable for all levels.  A gentle sequence designed to integrate your new knowledge with intuitive movement, an opportunity for the information to land in your body in an integrated and intuitive way as only your body knows best.

Yoga for People with Disabilities
An intensive training for Yoga teachers

Learning to teach yoga to someone with a disability, whether someone in a wheel chair or with an “invisible” disability, requires a teacher to adapt their idea of a yoga practice to the person who is in front of them. This workshop will not only prepare you to reach a wider range of students, it will also offer you a different way of approaching your own practice and teaching.

Over the 3 days this training will:

• Explore the use of props to set up students in asanas.
• Discuss and work with the various effects and manifestations of disability.
• Learn the language of disability.
• Discuss contraindications and alternatives.
• Consider sequencing in classes for people with varying needs.
• Examine the need and responsibilities of teaching and assisting.
• Includes experience working with students who have a wide range of disabilities.

As a yoga teacher, having the skills and confidence to teach this growing population gives you the means to expand your classes and offer yoga in new settings, care homes, support groups and day centres. Calm Collective and local teacher Clair Yates have links in the local community and there will be opportunities after the training to assist and teach in current local classes for those with disabilities.

A maturing population, a rise in chronic conditions such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and stroke survivors – working with students with disabilities and hearing their stories will bring a new dimension to your teaching as well as prepare you to adjust your teaching to meet the needs of everyone who walks or rolls into your yoga class. This workshop will open you to the potential of these students who many see as people who “can’t” and help you see that, yes, they “can.”

Pre-requisites:
Minimum two years continuous personal practice, plus completion of a 200hr teacher training program, though teacher trainees will be considered, please contact us to discuss.

Certification:
Upon satisfactory completion of the course you will receive a Certificate of Completion. This course meets the criteria for BWY CPD points.
