EVENT! Backbends & Heart Openers - A Jivamukti Masterclass with @luisvalentineyoga Saturday 27th June, 2-4pm £12.50 Booking link in bio We’re so excited to have the wonderful Luis leading this masterclass for us. Expect a beautifully paced vinyasa style practice that builds and opens the body, without rushing. A moving meditation that connects, breath, body and spirit. From Luis: Many of us find the backbending practice challenging and are unsure of how best to access these asana - how deep to go and how to avoid the common pinching sensation of the lower back. Perhaps we don’t even attempt this part of the class, believing that the deep backbends we see others in, simply aren't possible in our body. The practice does require a good balance of strength of the limbs and muscles of the back body, as well as a softness and openness to the front body - the perfect combination of effort and grace. On a spiritual level, backbends are heart openers and help us connect to Anahata chakra, the seat of unconditional love, compassion and forgiveness. They are related to those who have hurt us in the past and moving forward, into the future with ease. The masterclass will be a full length balanced practice with a focus on opening the front body, preparing for and exploring some of the most popular backbending asana in greater detail. Expect a strong, steady vinyasa style practice with intelligent creative sequencing and options to progress into deeper backbends. We will work slowly and with precision to enter and exit the poses safely and with ease.

EVENT: Take Flight Masterclass with @thespacebetweenthethoughts Saturday 20th June - 2-4pm 2 hours - £12.50 (100% of your £12.50 will be donated to the Runnymede Trust - the uk’s leading independent race equality think tank. Find out more about them @runnymedetrust ) Join Miles for an afternoon of taking flight off your mat. You'll be guided through a two-hour class drawing influences from Rocket yoga and Yogasana - with an extra focus on building towards inversions. You'll work through all the necessary poses to prepare to get upside down - as well as taking some time to break down some of the asana’s such as pincha mayurasana and handstand. Miles is trained in ashtanga vinyasa yoga but along the way has found a strong affinity for rocket yoga and yogasana. His lessons are intertwined with his deep love for the philosophy of yoga and the physiology of the human body, not only trying to develop his students physically, but also spiritually. Miles’ classes are strong and challenging, following lines of tradition but also bringing an element of play and exploration. You will work hard and leave feeling grounded and connected to your mind, body and spirit. This is NOT a workshop.
Friday night reflections. The dictionary describes ‘normal’ as ‘conforming to a standard’. It doesn’t say whose standard. So, as things start to open up around us. Before we simply slide back into what we did before without thought. Perhaps we could press pause and stop to consider for a moment, what standards we might set for ourselves. 📸Photo credit: @santigoperez
