WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Yoga Beginners Course
Thursdays 25 April to 23 May | 7.30pm to 8.45pm | £85
Embody’s 5-week yoga foundation courses are an excellent way to learn the basic principles of yoga and gain an appreciation of its many benefits.
Our friendly and knowledgeable teacher Claire Hawkins will guide you through the fundamental yoga postures with an emphasis on correct alignment and proper breathing techniques.

Life Coaching Workshop: Hit the Reset Button
Saturday 27 April | 2pm to 4pm | £25
You’re probably thinking if I can just do a little bit more, finish that to-do list and get that next achievement, everything will be okay. Yet the busier we get, the more stressed out we become, and the less likely we are to make clear decisions (let alone get that thing we really wanted in the first place).
You could keep going the way you’ve been going, or you could come up with a new system. One that keeps you feeling motivated and energised each day. Instead of burnt out and busy. One that prioritises you and how you want to feel.
Spring is the best time of the year to do a mini stocktake of where you’re at right now and to get clear on what it is you want in your life – and in this interactive group coaching session led by Danielle Brooker you’ll learn simple strategies to finally break up with busy for good, and instead bring more calm, peace and balance into your career, relationships and life itself.
(Plus, if you’ve ever wondered what Life Coaching is about, this is your chance to experience it first-hand, and get all your questions answered).
Yoga Improvers Workshop: Inversions
Saturday 11 May | 2pm to 4pm | £25
Focused on the fundamentals of yoga, our 2-hour improvers workshops led by Lynne Fugard are designed to equip you with the tools you need to make the very most of your yoga practice.
In this month’s workshop the focus will be on inversions. Starting with a dynamic and stimulating yoga sequence to open, strengthen and prepare the body and mind for going upside down on the mat, we will then take the time to playfully explore several exercises, techniques and tips that allow you to feel the safe alignment, engagement, fluidity and confidence required to float and fly in your yoga practice.
Together we will work towards shoulder stand, headstand, handstand and beyond, with safe and simple beginner versions of these poses offered alongside the more advanced and challenging options – so whether just beginning to contemplate going upside down, or wishing to build on your existing inversion practice, this workshop has something for you.
