Rupert Eyles_picMindful Flow – coming soon!

9:30-10:30am

Mindful Flow with Rupert Eyles. Each class becomes its own original story. We’ll drift into our bodies and follow a steady arc, often tying in a crescendo of twists and balances to deepen self-acquaintance, before moving to hold a pose or two for longer, and rest.

We’ll focus on cultivating greater self-compassion, softening to strengthen body and mind, and decluttering within to create space for the true self to bloom. You’ll be equipped with plenty of options along the way, tuning inward to consider what would serve you.

Rupert has been been deepening his practices of self-enquiry over the past 10 years with a variety of teachers and ashrams in the US and India, coupled with channelling self-reflection through writing. After years of practice, I completed my Hatha, Vinyasa, and Bhakti teacher training in Thailand.

Rupert is a Director of Wellbeing for a health and fitness app, and leans on his communications experience to support mental health charities.

The cost of this class is £14 drop in or 6 classes for £72 (please note that the 6 classes must be taken within a two month period from purchase date).

New Yoga  resizeYoga for Stress – ONLINE

1-2pm

This class will help release deep-seated tension, sometimes long held and so engrained in one’s physique, that it is often unnoticed until an issue/problem arises.

Using the breath and increasing awareness in movement and asanas (yoga postures) this tension can be let go of, so the body can open, the breath can restore and the mind can settle and clear.  From here the work in strengthening, integrating and harmonising the mind, body and breath begins.

Audrey has been teaching yoga since 2002 and practicing since 1985 and is qualified in the tradition of Krishnamacharya, as well as holding a British Wheel of Yoga diploma.  She is influenced and inspired by John Stirk, Vanda Scaravelli, and TKV Desikachar.

Visit Audrey’s website here.

The cost of this class is £14 drop in or 6 classes for £72 (please note that the 6 classes must be taken within a two month period from purchase date).

6:45-7:45pm

This Vinyasa Flow class emphasises the synchronisation of breath and movement both to enhance physical alignment and to deepen the emotional experience. Fast pace sequences and longer held asanas are blended together to create a unique harmonious balance that can benefit the body, mind and soul.

Classes are built around creative, meaningful themes, sometimes calling on the exploration of the physicality, other times focusing on certain energy centres and feelings. Movement is highlighted as the art of the body, a powerful tool to awaken every muscle and a magic gift for self – expression, exploration and understanding.

Classes are beginner friendly as variations and options will be given throughout and suitable for all levels of curious, brave souls.

Esmeralda is a certified and passionate vinyasa flow yoga teacher holding a Yoga Alliance certification. She thinks that Yoga is for everyone and deeply believes that this ancient practice starts on the mat but really begins when we move in the real world, everyday. Her teachings stress the practice of asanas as a fabulous way to honour the subtle yet powerful connection between the body, mind and soul.

The cost of this class is £14 drop in or 6 classes for £72 (please note that the 6 classes must be taken within a two month period from purchase date).
