January Guest TeacherWorkshop
FLOW and GROW Sundays
FLOW and GROW Sundays encourages you to find the balance between work and relaxation. This meeting of body and mind is created to support and guide people in achieving their goals. Surrounded by a supportive community, you can create the life you want and stay on top of your goals by de-cluttering your mind with yoga and becoming more action oriented through goal setting exercises.
FLOW (First hour)
In the first hour, we will flow through a vinyasa class based off the Ashtanga primary series of Yoga. The Ashtanga school of yoga is well known for its transformative basis with an energised sequence that helps you sweat. Producing intense internal heat will leave your muscles and organs detoxified, resulting in improved circulation and a calm mind.
GROW (Second hour)
Inspired by the GROW model of coaching, attendees will work in pairs using visualisation exercises and coaching questions to create a tangible action plan for you to walk away with. Recommended coaching questions will be provided for you to use in your pairs and your facilitator, Ore will be on hand to ensure you get the best use of the session.
Past Workshops and courses
Mini Retreat with Carla
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.

Introduction to Yin Yoga
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.
Air Mandala Masterclass: Flowing with the Heart Chakra
We will open with a yin practice to create space in the body and mind, followed by a dynamic Mandala vinyasa flow. Mandala involves moving 360° around the mat. We will focus on the practice of opening the heart, letting go of fear and nurturing the qualities of love and compassion. After this there will be standing and seated poses, working into deeper backbends with some funky variations. The practice with close with Yin yoga that will balance and restore the body. We will move to music with a focus on the breath. Prepare to feel uplifted and invigorated.
This masterclass will allow you to discover the elemental and creative power of Mandala, with plenty of chances to go upside down, if that’s your thing.
