What an incredible way to see in a new month with such a magnificent full moon.
By now most of us have either given up on our resolutions, reached the January end date or are still going strong. Regardless of where you find yourself, make certain that you are at peace with your decision and are moving forward with love as your main intention. This means self acceptance & self love, first and foremost.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Yoga Workshop: Beginners & Intermediate – The NEXT LEVEL
When: Sat 10th March from 9.30am-12.30pm
Where: Moredon Community Centre
Cost: £40 Includes learning materials. £35 Early Bird discount if booked by 20th Feb
This is the follow on to the Beginners & Intermediate workshop held in January. It will be a comprehensive 3hr workshop building on the yoga poses & breath work learnt in workshop 1. It is, however, not necessary to have attended the 1st workshop as modifications will be offered to those absolutely new to the practice. For those wanting to progress, this will give you the tools and confidence to keep your home practice moving safely forward.
We will open by touching very briefly on yoga philosophy and how this fits into modern day life. There will be an open discussion on the various types & styles of yoga and how best to choose the style for your own personal practice. We will recap all the postures and breathing techniques learnt previously, but with additional poses & intermediate variations offered to those willing and able to move beyond beginner level. Please note, this is still aimed at the BEGINNER level with a strong focus on alignment and breathing techniques.
No previous yoga experience is needed – just bring yourself & some comfortable, stretchy clothes.

Welcome to Sports Yoga!
What is Sports Yoga?
Put simply Sports Yoga keeps you moving fluidly like you used to. It builds strength, core, flexibility and balance. It builds a stronger, sharper, more supple, balanced body. A body that can stay at its peak for longer.
Up until now the Friday evening classes have been based around classic yoga moves. These moves have been focused on areas of vulnerability, prevalent in triathletes, with an emphasis on alignment & linked with correct breathing techniques. To those triathletes that have been coming regularly to class, I have seen incredible progression in flexibility, co-ordination and strength and I can only imagine how this has been helping you to balance out & improve your training.
This year brings a lot more focus into the actual movements and injuries associated with your sports. I am extremely fortunate to be studying with Sarah Ramsden, the Man United and Man City yoga coach. Having completed the 1st of 5 sessions I am already excited about bringing these teachings into class.
So what differences will you see? The yoga moves, while still classic, have incorporated elements of pilates and really gets into the root issues that lie deeply embedded in the areas of weakness like the tight lower back, weak hip flexors etc. There is a lot of focus on spinal mobility while still focusing on correct functioning of joints and breath control.
These group sessions will start to become more familiar the more you practice. The teachings also lend themselves beautifully for one to one sessions where we will begin with range of movement testing to assess areas that need attention, thereafter the sessions will be sequenced to target these focus points, releasing tension and opening up joints and lengthening muscles and fascia.
For those new to yoga and want to give it a try, the 1st class is free. Just book on www.earthyogasanctuary.co.uk
