Yoga Workshops

Workshops provide the opportunity to explore our yoga practice in more depth, immersing ourselves in the experience of yoga for either an afternoon master class or a whole day event.

Each workshop investigates a theme, so we have a chance to view an aspect of our yoga practice in greater depth. This can help to enrich our understanding. As well as our popular indoor events we also offer a seasonal experience of yoga, connecting with nature outdoors alongside an ecologically guided walk of our grounds.

Workshops can also allow us the opportunity to explore different “styles” of yoga in greater depth.

Yoga Styles Offered at our Workshops

Hatha Yoga is the yoga tradition most familiar to Western Culture. It involves moving slowly into yoga postures with an awareness of the physical alignment of the body.Postures are gently held whilst breathing steadily.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a series of connected postures that flow from one movement to the next in combination with our breathing. This active style of yoga builds heat in the body and helps improve strength and stamina.

Yin Yoga uses a series of mainly floor based postures said to stretch the connective tissue and help facilitate the flow of energy (that the yogis refer to as “prana” or “chi”) through the body. It is believed that the connective tissue houses the energy channels (nadis or meridians) through which the body’s energy is believed to flow. In yin yoga the quietening postures are held for a period of time and the postures are performed with the muscles relaxed in order to help access this deeper connective tissue.

Restorative Yoga is less concerned with strengthening or stretching the body but instead we position the body in such a way as to help restore our energy levels. Props passively support restorative poses, so you don’t have to use the body’s energy to perform the postures.  For this reason restorative yoga is ideal at times when our energy levels feel depleted as it may help us build stores of energy and, if practised regularly may prevent us from feeling drained.
