WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Friday 27 October | 7.30pm to 8.45pm | £20
Join sound therapist Chai Francesco for a very special and very blissful evening of relaxation as you bathe in the sublimely healing tones of crystal singing bowls and the oriental gong. The resonance of these instruments is tangible, making it not just an auditory experience but also like receiving a sound massage!
Throughout the ages, sound has been used to heal, strengthen and soothe. During a sound bath, most people experience a wonderful feeling of relaxation, and you can expect to leave the session feeling balanced, restored and ready to enjoy the weekend ahead.

Refresh and Recharge Wellbeing Workshop
Saturday 28 Oct | 2pm to 4.15pm | £25
Feeling like you’ve lost your spark? Exhausted and can’t stop adding to your to-do list? Or maybe you’re wanting to find a way to maintain that summer inner-glow to sail through the rest of the year feeling energised? Then join life coach Danielle Brooker and yoga practitioner Sue Rahmani for this very special workshop focused on encouraging personal growth through a strong mind, body and soul connection.
Combining a gentle yoga sequence (no yoga experience required) with group life coaching and a guided meditation, the workshop is an opportunity to get to know yourself better so you can reconnect with your core needs, helping you to discover why it is you do what you do, what things really light you up, and how to keep navigating back to the true you so that you consistently feel refreshed and recharged despite the many stresses of urban life.

Yoga Improvers Workshop: Twists, Binds and Backbends
Saturday 4 Nov | 2pm to 4pm | £25
This special 2-hour workshop with Lynne Fugard will build through an invigorating “Fire” Mandala Vinyasa sequence: spinning fluid spirals 360 degrees around the mat in preparation for the body to weave itself into deliciously deep twists, binds, backbends and beyond. Whilst opening the shoulders, chest, and side body, we will also cultivate a strong and powerful core, the centre from which and around which we move, expand and explore our natural range of motion.
Using props and partner work there will be time to break down and work towards those more challenging twists, binds and backbends from the yoga asana practice – including standing, seated, balancing and inverted poses – leaving you plenty of ideas to take back to your self-practice and weekly classes. As potent antidotes to our forward-facing, desk-ridden lives, these transformative poses encourage new perspectives and creative ways of moving, strengthening around the spine, enhancing posture and breath-capacity, all whilst lifting the mood, stimulating the nervous system, and clarifying the mind. All levels of experience are welcome: there will be something for everyone!
