yesterday’s workshop…

By | Blog | No Comments

…was a great success! Thanks to everyone who came down to the village hall to spend the afternoon with Julia and I. If you missed this workshop, we were looking at the core muscles, exploring uddiyana bandha through yoga asanas and pranayama and how to work up to some of the more challenging yoga postures through the pilates method. We focused on a few key balances, including bakasana (crane pose) – and saw some fantastic balances including side crane!

Dean Row Village Hall is a truly lovely little venue, very rustic and cosy, light and airy. It was described by one of our yoginis as something out of Beatrix Potter! The next workshop will be at the same venue on 23rd June – this time we will be exploring postures that release the spine, using a fusion of pilates and yoga. This workshop will be slightly longer, and as usual we’ll be providing a variety of tea and biscuits to keep us well fuelled!

Please get in touch if you would like to book.

New Yoga course starting in Wilmslow from June

By | Blog | No Comments

I’m going to be starting a 10 week hatha yoga course from June. Each week you will try out different postures, as well as picking up breathing techniques, ways to achieve a quieter mind and time to enjoy a short relaxation. It’s fine if you’re an absolute beginner or already further along on your yoga journey.
The classes will be taking place on a Wednesday morning from 10-11am in Wilmslow at Dean Row Village Hall. This is a truly lovely place to do yoga! It’s centrally heated with lots of natural light and a calming ambience.

Each session costs £7 to drop in on the day, or you can book your place for the full 10 week course for just £50.
