Please note that in light of the current circumstances I am not teaching classes in person at the moment.

 

I am in the process of exploring ways of holding classes and one-to-one yoga and mindfulness sessions online and will post about this shortly.

 

Sending much love out there during this difficult time. Warmest, Anna x 

workshops

 

Workshops provide an opportunity to dive a little deeper into your practice. Open to all levels they enable us to take a little more time with ourselves and this beautiful practice. 

 

therapeutic yoga for stress and fatigue 

 

Saturday 21 March| 14.00 - 15.00 | Yoga On The Lane, E8 2EB

Stress affects us all at points in our lives. Whilst short bursts of stress can be necessary to stimulate and activate us, operating in this mode over long periods of time simply depletes us. When suffering with stress we can feel a huge tiredness in our bodies but spinning activity in our minds which make the rest that we crave hard to access.

 

This workshop will explore what happens in our bodies when we get stressed and yoga tools that we can reach for to restore a sense of calm and access deep rest. The session will incorporate the gentle but powerful 'pawanmuktasana' joint-releasing series which will ease tension from tip to toe allowing energy to flow freely but calmly through the body again. Once the body has found some ease and the mind has found some calm we will drop into restorative stillness to soak up deep rest.

 

Places are £30. Open to all. No experience of yoga necessary.

embracing quiet - a yin & restorative yoga workshop

 

Saturday 16 May| 14.00 - 17.00 | The Life Centre, Islington, N1 8QH 

 

Eastern traditions recognise that true wellbeing comes from balancing the opposing energies of yin (calm and cooling) and yang (energetic and fiery). Modern, city culture which often promotes striving and achieving over resting and reflecting can make this balance hard to achieve. 

 

This workshop will seek to redress the balance. In the initial yin practice (a largely floor-based practice - not a downward dog in sight!) poses are held for 3 minutes or longer allowing muscles and connective tissues to gradually release. We will then drop into deeper stillness through restorative poses. With the body supported by props, but before the edge of stretch our nervous system can drop into a deep relaxation so we return to our lives a little more balanced, revived and refreshed. 

 

Places are £35/£40. Open to all levels.
