Menu of delights:

 

Holistic Yoga classes - suitable for beginners and the experienced. Nourish the mind and the body. Our classes are 75 minutes to allow for deep relaxation. No long term commitment, we believe our classes speak for themselves. Book on line. £10 per class.

Gong and Sound baths

Gongs and sound baths are not new, they have been used for thousands of years. They are a form of deep relaxation where you are immersed in the vibrations of the instruments. They are very helpful for creating a sense of rest and harmony in the body. No previous experience is needed. Gong baths are not suitable for women who are pregnant, people with epilepsy or conditions adversely affected by sound or people with psychotic illnesses eg schizophrenia, bipolar disorder.

Full moon gong and sound bath - the full moon helps us to celebrate our path through life and reflect and let go of what no longer serves us. 

Dark moon gong and sound bath - a time for deep relaxation and letting the sounds surround you like a healing blanket.

The themes are entwined with the seasons and time of year. 

Gong and sound baths last 90 minutes and cost £20. Places are advertised

on the website when they become available.

Breath better programme - although we breath every moment we are rarely aware of how much our breath can affect our total wellbeing. When we are under stress or over busy our breath goes into fight or flight mode. This was useful 1,000 years ago when we needed to flee from preditors but today it can result in a range of issues including IBS, high blood pressure, lowered immunity, depression and migraines. In holistic yoga we use a range of tecniques that can turn this responses around and result in better digestion, lowered heart rate and a calmer and positive outlook.

You get:

- an initial 1 hour assessment session

- 3 further 1 hour sessions to develop a range of personalised techniques to help you breath better

- exercises and activites to do between sessions to help you progress 

- A final programme to take away to help you continue your progress

Book your dates by contacting us.

Whole programme costs just £180.

Restorative yoga programmeRestorative yoga uses passive stretches supported by bolsters/blankets etc and works at a deep level on both physical/mental/emotional/energy issues. Each pose is held in comfort for longer than in a normal yoga class. It is delicious and feels so good!

It is particularly good for people with busy minds or lots of responsibilities, those who feel tired a lot of the time or have trouble sleeping, people who find it hard to relax, have issues with depression or anxiety, have balance problems, are recovering from illness or injury or just want to slow down and experience a deeply relaxing and renewing practice.

You get:

- an initial 1 hour assessment and restorative yoga session

- 3 further 1 hour sessions of restorative yoga based on your individual needs

- mini restorative techniques to try at home to maintain your wellbeing 

- A final programme to take away to help you continue your progress

Sound therapy programme - coming soon.

 

Our Yoga - Holistic Yoga for Everyone

Ever wanted to try yoga but thought you were not flexible enough, too old, wrong size ?

Anybody can access the benefits of yoga, yoga practice is a uniquely individual experience even when attending a class -  its not about making perfect shapes, being super bendy and looking good in Lycra. 

 

The yoga we offer is about improving individual well being regardless of size, shape, age - Yoga for Everyone.

In our yoga practice we can begin to breath more efficiently, understand ourselves and our bodies better and become more at ease with ourselves. Our classes are centred around a mindful approach, helping us be more aware and resilient in all areas of life. As well as that, some laughter and joy can be experienced in class, as important in yoga as it is life. 

 

We aim to guide our students with transformational techniques, including physical (Asana) practice, breathing practices (Pranayama) and meditation, relaxation, in order to bring about a state of harmony, balance and ultimately contentment.

Our classes are suitable for all levels and we like to encourage people new to yoga and mature people. We do not currently offer pregnancy Yoga.

Our Studio

The Yoga Studio offers a unique, intimate and welcoming atmosphere with cosy underfloor heating, especially comforting when sitting/lying on the floor!

 

We have found that practising yoga in a beautiful space really enhances our practice. After many years of teaching in rather grubby, stark halls, when we built the Yoga Studio we prioritised creating a special sanctuary of warmth and calmness for the yoga community of Mapperley and surrounding areas. We also have an extensive range of yoga equipment to help ensure that your practice is as comfortable and developed as possible.
