Here are some simply and effective reminders and suggestions to help you feel a little more grounded this season :-) I can't wait to share more on this in Autumn Flow & Deep Relaxation Online workshop on Sunday 18th October 4-6pm at Heather Yoga
We would like you to know that our yoga centre is such a safe space for you to come and explore your practice in, at any time :-) Right now with the Health & Safety protocols we’ve implemented in the building and changes to our operations, we’ve exceeded the Government guidelines and yet the shala still feels as beautiful and special as ever - even with the new set up!
These two books can really help you to access and interpret the Yoga Sutras with fresh eyes. If you can link relevant examples from your own life experience then you are more likely to be able to digest, remember and apply them. They can act as fun and enjoyable introductions to the classical Philosophy of Yoga. Allowing you to capture a little of your own yogic insight which may ignite the beginning of a journey of self-study...
Our home for Yoga in Saltaire has reopened with studio classes now up & running again after over 5 months! We’re over the moon to welcome you back and cannot wait to see you in 3D again sharing this practice together at the space as we journey towards some kind of ‘normality’ :-)
Please make sure you have everything you need to support your practice and body in a very skilful way, and that investing in props can allow you to really experience the different yoga poses with a sense of space, steadiness and ease.
One of the definitions which really struck a chord with me, is when being embodied was likened to that feeling we've all experienced, when you know deep down whether a situation or event feels right or wrong. Our minds might be telling us one thing, but in my experience, that wiser intuitive feeling never lies. This was the moment that I knew there was more to this, and it had my full attention.
Following on from our big announcement last week, we are sharing some more information with you about the planned grand reopening on 15th August*, and I wanted to firstly say THANK YOU for all the kind words that have been shared about you missing the space and how much you're looking forward to us being back together there soon.
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.
Over the years I have learned a few important lessons and I wanted to share the four reasons why I think yoga and fitness training are the perfect pair.
Whether you are an olympic lifter, cardio lover or a weekend walker, hopefully you will find something useful!
For some of us, Savasana is the best part of class. A welcome surrender, an invaluable opportunity to release and rest, a moment of complete suspension as we happily absorb all of the positive energy and movement from our practice... For others however, having ‘nothing to do, nowhere to be’ can become an experience of inner conflict and provokes a deep feeling of discomfort. Given the opportunity it would be part of the class which some might prefer to skip, especially during lockdown!
