Yoga for Beginners 4 Week Course
Sundays 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th June | 10:00-11:15 | £55 | With Emma Levy
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.
- Breathwork (known as pranayama) – how we can use simple breath practices to boost mood and re-balance the nervous system
- Relaxation – in our culture of permanent busyness, most of us have forgotten how to relax. We spend time on this incredibly important art.

“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.

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)

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 .
