Our beginner course is perfect for those with little or no experience and for regular students wishing to rebuild the foundations of their practise…there’s always something new to learn! In this course you will be supported every step of the way as you learn more about how your body moves and how to work with certain conditions as well as developing a deeper connection to your mind, body and spirit.

What to Expect:

  • Fundamental postures (known as asana) & Sun Salutations
  • Anatomy & Modifications for conditions
  • Meditation – Yoga is an ancient form of meditation. By including simple, accessible mindfulness techniques, often enjoyed lying down, we invite the mind into a less reactive, calmer state.

“There is nothing so wise as a circle” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Begin your journey of self-realisation as we come together as we are, our defences dropped and masks removed in the safest place where you are free to just be and become.
Women’s circles provide a safe place where every woman is invited to try out something new, maybe speaking up for the first time, acknowledging feelings or just experiencing the sense of connection and belonging with like-minded women.
You are invited to join us on a journey of self-realisation and empowerment as you begin trying out your wings. Together we will respect and honour one another and feel respected and honoured; hear one another and be heard; and see one another and truly feel seen.
Expect meditation and movement, journalling and the usual beautiful connections we make as we join together in this shared space.  You will leave illuminated!

This is a not-for-profit event, all contributions go back into the loving care of the space and time nurturing the Circle.

108 Sun Salutations

Saturday Dec 17th |13:00-15:00 | Free (donations to our chosen charity welcome)

The practice will be divided into 9 sets of 12 rounds (1 round = right and left side)
The internal heat that you create during this practice is cleansing, detoxifying, and awakening and the pauses in between sets are very releasing so prepare to build and let go.
Other benefits to practicing 108 Sun Salutations:
•Sun Salutations heat the body and activate Prana (vital life force)
•The active flow of the class helps create and move energy and stuck emotions
•The pauses in between cycles help release energy and emotions that no longer serve you.
•During the practice you will think “why on earth did I sign up for this?” Just keep going, this is totally normal, you will find a state of ease, and even a sense of flow.
•Surrendering to the practice will arrive and when it does you can begin to acknowledge what arises emotionally, and then let it go. When you finish, you will feel lighter and find meaning.

Sound Bath

Sunday Jan 8th |18:00-19:15 | £20 10% discount for members
With Tracy

Sound Healing uses sound, music and specialist instruments played in therapeutic ways, combined with deep self-reflection techniques to improve health and wellbeing.

Sound Baths are a powerful experience wherein you are bathed in the sounds & vibrations of crystal bowls, chimes, singing bowls and other instruments that will take you on a healing journey, creating 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.
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 well-being. Many people express a sense of clarity, freedom and transformation following a sound journey, which can last for a number of days.

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 the duration of the session.

Baby First Aid (for 0-12 months)

Saturday Jan 28th |13:00-14:00 | £20
Lead by Kim from Daisy First Aid

Being a parent is definitely one of the toughest jobs in the world. Raising young children is no easy feat, especially since these inherently curious toddlers are always at risk of bumps and bruises. What if these injuries are serious or even life-threatening – do you know what to do next?

This is where first aid training comes in. By taking a paediatric first aid course, you’ll gain the right knowledge to recognise the symptoms of injuries or ailments and the skills to administer first aid to your child properly. Training for these situations can truly save your child’s life.

Such matters are undoubtedly serious, but Daisy First Aid courses are not scary, we take the fear out of first aid and instead give you the knowledge and confidence to deal with the situation .

Chakras, Yoga & Sound Workshop

Sunday Feb 26th |15:00-18:00 | £30 10% discount for members
With Tracy Barber

In this workshop you will learn about the energy system of the chakras.  Chakras are the energy centres within the body running along the spine from the base to the crown of the head.  If we feel out of balance or alignment with ourselves, we can look to the chakra system as clues to how to return to harmony.

Each of the seven major chakras are affected by specific movements, sounds, tones, mantras, and musical instruments. In this workshop you will learn how to activate each chakra through gentle yoga postures and sound. 

What you will learn:
•The Chakra System and their corresponding physical and spiritual aspects
•The Earth and Soul Star chakras
•How to stimulate and balance the chakras through yoga postures and sound
•Chakra sound frequencies and sacred syllables
•Solfeggio frequencies

What to expect:
•All level Yoga postures designed to increase your awareness of energy
•Sounding the sacred chakra syllables
•Full body healing meditation

This is a journey of self-discovery, to guide you into becoming more aware of your physical and energy bodies, enabling you to tap into your innate healing resources.
