Empowering Me: Masculine & Feminine

What does masculine & feminine mean to you?

Do you embrace one energy more than the other?

Do you want to ‘speak up’ more for yourself? Or be less quick to react?

Are you wanting to feel more at ease with who you are?

In these workshops, you will explore things that might be holding you back in life and create space to embrace more of who you are.

We will play with these polarities utilising various therapeutic techniques including movement, expressive arts, and heart connection exercises; within a space that is both safe and challenging, both inspiring and grounding, and with depth and humour.

£25
OR £60 for all 3 workshops if booked together.

Journey to Arm Balancing

Join Laura for this fun afternoon workshop. This is suitable for anyone who already has a yoga practice - this a great introduction to some more advanced poses that we don't always get time to explore in regular classes. This is a great way to advance your practice, helping you to discover new poses and new possibilities for how to move!

We’ll learn to build strong foundations so we can feel confident about balancing on our arms and hands and going upside down. These poses help us to feel empowered and energised.

Expect lots of upper body strength building, tips on how to find a way into arm balances for YOUR body, and lots of laughter!

Spaces are limited as I'd like to keep the group quite small. Follow the link to reserve your spot!

Price: £20

6 week mindfulness meditation
Sep

to Oct 14

6 week mindfulness meditation

Explore and experience in a fun and relaxed way how to apply the principles of zen to improve your health and wellbeing through meditation and mindfulness.


Bompu zen (zen purely for health and wellbeing) is recorded as early as the 8th century and provides approaches, concepts, tools and techniques to allow you to live more freely and fully; without stress, anxiety and frustration impeding the body’s natural state of vitality. By seeing and responding to things with more awareness, you can spend more time feeling good, relaxed, calm and alive, and less time struggling, with substantial health benefits.


The six week course, created by Daizan Roshi, a British zen master now based at Zenways in London,  takes a new concept each week (e.g. role stress, time pressure, taking care of yourself) and introduces the zen attitude with practical tools (including various meditations), peer-reviewed articles and opportunities to discuss specifically how this applies to your own life situation.


The course is given by George Watson, a qualified Zenways teacher, who has over a decade of meditation experience including two years in Japan, sitting and serving on various retreats, and trying to hang on to some sanity in corporate London.


Everyone gets a recording of the guided meditation with the aim that you try to meditate daily and can give George a call/message any time with any questions or uncertainties as you go.

Committing to an hour early on a Friday morning for six weeks can be tough, and 25 minutes of meditation every day even tougher, but ideally you can start to establish a habit, alongside your yoga and other activities, which has over thousands of years helped countless people to live freer, fuller lives.

Yin Yang Day Retreat

Yin Yang Day Retreat

Back by popular demand we are hosting another day retreat! The yoga studio has beautiful views out to the hills at the foot of the West Highland Way. It is a real treat to visit and we are super excited to go back here with you!

According to Eastern wisdom, everything is made of a balance of opposites - yin and yang. In the West, we live in a non-stop 'yang' culture, without much yin, and our tendency to rush around can lead to us feeling exhausted and on edge.

We'll look at the concept of yin and yang in our minds, energy systems and bodies, enjoying a balanced yoga practice based on both.

Schedule
I0.30 Energising yang asana practice
12.30 - 1.30 Healthy Lunch
1.30-2.30 Walk along West Highland Way or do a thai massage session in the studio
2.30-4.30 Yin yoga asana practice

£70 for full day including lunch. We can organise car sharing for people who don't drive!
