The ancient yogis understood the science of the breath as a way to actually master your mind & energy - using the breath as the agent to calm fluctuations and agitation of the mental space, slow down and step away from tidal wave of thoughts, to regulate, calm & restore your nervous system, harness the subtle energy for greater vitality & health, and the capacity to transform ourselves from the inside out!

Chaturanga Dandasana is a really difficult and challenging pose. It is also intrinsically linked within vinyasa flow transitions and sun salutations. We use the whole of the body when we come into it and hold it, and this requires high levels of strength, integrity and skill. The most common alignment mistakes that we make in Chaturanga Dandasana occur because we haven’t given ourselves enough time to lay the ground-work and build up the necessary strength.
Yoga teaches us about slowing down the fluctuations of the mind. To find the steadiness & ease. To sit in our heart and intuition and be guided. The answers are not outside of us, (or on google!)
In the stillness we receive.
In next months 'Flowing Into Stillness' and April’s ’Emerge, Radiant, Renewed: Spring Cleanse Workshop’ we’ll be including a variety of stress-relieving Breath Kriyas which are similar to pranayama for moving our subtle energy (Prana/ Life force) to help promote our vitality and open to deep levels of presence & relaxation, and also some cleansing kriya techniques for purifying the physical body to awaken a sweet clear mental state.
We are super happy to be finally making this long awaited announcement to you that we are planning to reopen the doors on Saturday 15th August! We're so looking forward to welcoming you back very soon to your much loved home for Yoga in Saltaire/ Shipley.
Every single day it takes work and commitment, especially when we’re 'not in the mood’ to work on ourselves. But the result is the better feelings, the kindness and compassion in our thoughts, words, actions, the conscious choices we make for ourselves and our environment. And with this, we can inspire and have a positive impact on at least one person, which is how we are contributing to the solution, helping to move the needle to some degree. and making a difference to the whole.
