Yoga for Beginners 4 Week Course - Sidcup Studio
March Wednesdays 18:30-19:45 6th, 13th, 29th & 27th with Lua Burrows
April Dates TBA soon
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.

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.

“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.
Kirtan - Sidcup Studio
Saturday 16th March 17:00-18:15
Free/Donations to charity welcome
Join us for a soul-soothing evening of Kirtan, a musical journey that transcends boundaries and connects hearts. This free event, open to all, invites you to immerse yourself in the uplifting vibrations of devotional chanting. Held with the intention of spreading love and unity, we welcome donations that will go towards supporting our chosen charity, creating a positive ripple effect in the world.
What to expect: As you step into the sacred space of our Kirtan event, expect to be enveloped in a harmonious atmosphere filled with the melodic strains of mantra, Kirtan will guide you through a meditative and joyous experience. The repetitive chanting of ancient Sanskrit mantras serves as a powerful tool for mindfulness, allowing you to quiet the mind and connect with a deeper sense of self.
Feel free to participate by singing along, clapping, or simply basking in the collective energy of the group. Kirtan is not just a musical performance; it's a shared journey of self-discovery and communal celebration. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or new to the world of Kirtan, you'll find a welcoming space to explore the transformative power of sound and intention.
Don't miss this opportunity to come together, raise your spirits, and contribute to a cause that amplifies the spirit of compassion. Join us for an evening of blissful Kirtan, where the music unites us, and our collective vibrations create positive change in the world.
Mantra Workshop - Bexley Studio
Saturday 2nd March 16:00-18:30 £30 10% discount for members
Mantra is a powerful tool that takes us beyond the thinking mind. Mantra is a Sanskrit word - Man means 'mind or thinking process' and tra means 'going beyond' or 'instrument'. When understood and used correctly, Mantra becomes the mind's instrument to evolve spiritually and bring about profound change.
As we chant a mantra, it affects our brain and thoughts, the body becomes like a sound box and vibrates with it reaching the level of organs and cells to bring about profound change.
In this workshop we will cover:
The different types and history of mantra
Sanskrit & energetics of mantra
Mantras for peace, health, harmony and prosperity
There will be many mantra meditations over the course of the workshop where we will be seated for periods of time (a chair can be provided). There will be gentle movement and breathing practices to open the lungs as well as voice warm-ups.
You do not have to know how to sing, speak sanskrit or sound perfect! Mantra is a vibratioinal feeling, a meditation that uses your voice as medicine. There is only one you and therefore only one of your tone and it doesn't matter how that sounds to anyone else, it matters only how it feels within.
You will be prescribed mantras to practice at home if you wish.
