November Workshop

Make my body feel better

your teacher Sabina

Restoring balance and releasing blockages through yin yoga

Yin yoga uses long held, meditative postures which let you unwind and unblock tension in the meridians (energy channels) of the body.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, meridians are energy channels through which energy (Qi) flows. If blockages occur within energy lines the body will not function properly. In this workshop we will explore how meridian channels can be unlocked with movement and breath leaving you working better.

To embed all the information Sabina will end with a Meridian yoga nidra, a guided meridian cleansing meditation. In the hustle and bustle of city life, dedicate some precious time to yourself to pause.

Date: Saturday 23rd November 12:30- 14:30
Cost: £25

Workshop

Mini Retreat with Carla

calrq

The act of withdrawing into safety. A place where you can seclude yourself and put aside your daily duties. A private refuge of discovery and connection. Sound good? Join me for a two hour escape where you will have the opportunity to ground your body, still your mind and reconnect to yourself.

Carla has been a freelance yoga teacher in London just just over six years and is General Manager at Time + Space Yoga. The success of her first yoga retreat in France last year has encouraged her to give people more chances to rest, reflect and replenish at their home yoga studio for a longer time period that a usual yoga class allows for.

Treat yourself to this sacred time for yourself. Carla hopes for you to walk away feeling rested, rejuvenated and inspired.

Suitable for all.

April Workshop

Introduction to Yin Yoga

Sabina Ahmadov

Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to Yang (Dynamic) Yoga and a Yang lifestyle. It is a passive, yet challenging practice as we hold poses for a few minutes and place an emphasis on releasing and relaxing the muscles.

We will move and breathe through a grounding sequence which will allow you to enter a deep state of relaxation and release. Holding these healing and prop supported poses between 2 – 5 minutes will open thicker layers of connective tissue around the joints. This workshop is suitable to everyone and we will explore the physical postures, and build your understanding of why these poses are beneficial for your body.

June Workshop

Yin + Guided Meditation with Sabina

ZS-230419-YOGA-83
Indulge yourself with an afternoon of relaxing Yin yoga, followed by guided chakra meditation. In this workshop we will explore the meaning of chakras and how Yin yoga can be used to guide us into restoring equilibrium in our body.
The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates as wheel or disc. In yoga, meditation and Ayurveda this refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. Yin yoga is a meditative practice of slow, deep poses that are held for longer periods of time. Each pose in the sequence will awaken a particular chakra energy centre, allowing us to explore inner landscapes of our physical body, as well as delve into the deeper levels of our being. We will close the session with a meditation session designed to awaken each chakra.
Date: Saturday 29th June 12.30- 14.30
Cost: £25 (Half Price Monthly Members)

Guest Workshop with Soulcity London

Kirtan with Rādhikā Dāsa

IMG-20190604-WA0069

 

Kirtan – call and response chanting – can seem a bit strange initially, but just like yoga, skydiving and falling in love, it’s one of those things you need to experience to truly understand what it does and how good it can feel. 
Kirtan refers to chanting – one of the main practices of yoga. Classic Indian instruments, such as the harmonium and drum accompany the chant, while simple Sanskrit mantras are repeated in a call-and-response fashion, from the leader to the group, building in energy and tempo.

Rādhikā Das is a core manager for the Kirtan London project and helps to oversee its 6 Hour Kirtans, retreats, workshops and courses, as well as leading soulful sessions himself.

Date: Friday 28th June 19:00 – 20:30

Cost: £10
