An immersive weekend of exploring the perfect compliment to your dynamic yoga practice

 

Having recently gained authorisation to be one of the few teachers based in the UK to teach Matthew Sweeney's Moon Sequence, Eleanor invites you to immerse yourself into the flow of self exploration through the body, mind and breath over a full weekend.

 

This  is a gentle, flowing sequence that both opens and strengthens an area we all identify with as being a challenge: the hips.

 

By drawing from over 7 years of teaching, and more recent training in Remedial Massage, Eleanor will explain the importance of hip mobility, strength and flexibility for better posture, functional movement and good health both on and off the mat.  Having the luxury of a full weekend will also allow us the time to go beyond the physical and explore the fascinating realms of pranayama (breathing techniques) and dhyana (contemplation and enquiry).

 

Whether you are just starting on your yogic journey or whether you are a seasoned practitioner, Eleanor welcomes you along to share the benefits of this wonderful practice and some of Matthew's insightful teachings. After a weekend of familiarising yourself with the sequence, you'll be fully equipped to integrate this into your self practice... or come and join in the weekly Led Moon Sequence class starting Wednesday 9th January 2019 (more details soon!)

Moon Sequence (Chandra Krama)

Full Weekend Workshop

Ashtanga Self Practice Workshop

© Sarah Koury 14

Everything you need to know about Mysore Self Practice.

 

Mysore Style classes can seem intimidating and scary – but this workshop will leave you feeling confident and ready to practice.

 

Mysore style classes are a central aspect of the Ashtanga Yoga system, enabling you to practice at your own pace whilst receiving one to one attention and assistance from an experienced teacher.

 

In this workshop you will learn the basics of Mysore Self Practice – the history, how it works and what to expect when you attend your first class.

 

You will be guided through the basic techniques of breath and bandha. You will learn sun salutations and the first few poses of the sequence so you have a good foundation for your first class.

 

You’ll also get 4 complimentary Mysore classes to use within 28 days (from the day of your workshop) so you can practice what you’ve learned.

 

You do not need to have any knowledge of the Ashtanga sequence or any prior experience of Yoga to attend, all are welcome.

 

As Ashtanga can be a sweaty practice we ask that you bring your own mat or a yoga towel to cover our mats.
