WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Friday 25 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.

Yoga Improvers Workshop: Arm Balances
Saturday 26th October | 2.00pm to 4.00pm | £25
October’s yoga improvers workshop with Lynne Fugard will focus on arm balances of all shapes and sizes: defying gravity one pose, one transition, at a time.
After a brief warm-up to prepare the body, we’ll be playing with several exercises to experience the inner engagement, alignment and buoyancy required to take weight into the hands and float the feet off the mat. There will be opportunities to encounter a whole ream of arm balances – from the firefly to the dragonfly – perhaps even soaring effortlessly between them. Rather than relying on brute upper-body strength, Lynne will offer expert tips and guidance demonstrating that the ability to fly in your yoga practice often comes down to finding subtle tipping points, working with counterbalance, using the whole of the body to express the pose, and all whilst breathing, breathing, breathing!
Whether just beginning to lift off into your crow pose, or investigating the possibility of gliding in between balances, beginner versions will be offered alongside more advanced modifications so that this workshop will have something for everyone.
