Your sound bath is played by Jean Habron, sound baths offer us a spa-like session and they can be just what you need to relax and restore. Sometimes in life, we feel anxiety or we feel stressed and we can find ourselves holding on to negative energy or feel heaviness in our heart. A sound bath will give you the opportunity to let go of all of that and just return to a state of calm and well-being.
This is an opportunity to relax and heal your inner self. You’re likely to feel calm, centred and balanced. You’re also likely to feel uplifted and inspired as you connect with your own positive energy.
Yoga Nidra Workshop
Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is the practice of profound rest.
This ancient practice of the yogis allows the body and mind to drop into a state of deep rest and relaxation. It is said that 30 minutes in Yoga Nidra, is equivalent to 2-4 hours of sleep. In this place of deep relaxation your body and mind are able to rest and restore. Much healing can take place.
It is also in this place of deep relaxation, that you can be receptive to your own innermost knowing and inner guidance.
During the practice, your mind will be guided toward awareness of sensation, feeling, imagery and the space of peace and calm that resides within. You will be expertly guided through this experience and out the other end, feeling rested, recharged and refreshed.
The practice requires nothing more of you than to show up. The majority of the class will be laying down and staying still.
Nothing is required from you at all. Simply to be there is enough.
Sunday 6pm to 7.30pm …… 13th Feb 13th Mar £15 each
Welcome to this space for women to come together in a safe, nurturing and supportive environment.
Every month we hold a yoga circle for women of all ages, abilities and ranges in yoga experience (including none at all). It’s a wonderful way to ease into movement, find peace in your mind, and connect with a community of other women.
During the session, you will be invited into a combination of yogic movement, meditation, breath, and sound to transport you on a journey into deep inner listening, self-nourishment, and restoration. The session is specifically designed for women: respecting women’s bodies, connecting to their essence and celebrating their power.
It’s yoga, but it’s not your “ordinary” yoga class. There is much less focus on physical exercise and so much more focus on deeply restful, radical, joyful healing and fun!
If you have never tried yoga before, this is an easily accessible movement, suitable for absolutely ALL women. If you have done yoga before, this will take your yoga experience to a whole new level.
All women are welcome, exactly as they are. Come and join the sisterhood and nourish your soul.

Yin Yoga – A Journey of Self Discovery
Welcome to this space and time for you. On this 4-week course, you will indulge in yourself; exploring slow movement, breath and meditation to move you into a calmer, quieter space. Yin Yoga is a slow, stretchy style of yoga where you will pause in positions for longer. Holding longer means that you can feel into and experience the body, mind and emotions. Yin yoga is also a more calming form of yoga which works on the connective tissue of the body (fascia) and energy channels (meridians)
This course is a fabulous balance to high intensity exercise, a busy lifestyle or just a lifetime of built up stress and tension.
Each week you will be guided through a tailored sequence with a specific focus. There will be opportunity to explore deeply, process, and share as the group moves through the course together. You will be expertly guided throughout, using a gentle approach, breath and meditation techniques.
This course is suitable for absolutely everyone, even if you have never done yoga before. It is ideal if you want to slow down, connect inward, or even just have a really good, yet relaxing stretch.
This fabulous course is facilitated by Rachel Gosling, who specialises in therapeutic styles of yoga and their healing effects.
Well Women Yoga
Welcome to this this radical, empowering and enriching course that explores yoga and its therapeutic benefits for women’s health and wellbeing. Well-Woman Yoga not only respects women’s changing physical, emotional and mental needs through all stages of life, but it actively celebrates them.
During this four-week course, you will explore:
• The needs of women in yoga, according to their anatomy and physiology
• How yoga can support menstrual health, fertility, and menopause
• The impact of patriarchy on the practice of yoga
• Practices that actively enhance a woman’s connection to inner power
• Practices that celebrate the divine feminine
The course encourages sharing and discussion. As we come together as a group of women, we are united in many of our experiences, understanding and deep inner wisdom of what is right for us.
The main focus will be an experiential journey, using yogic movement, meditation, breath, sound and deep rest. The practices that will be shared are beautifully crafted for women: respecting women’s bodies, encouraging deep inner listening, allowing women to feel nourished and nurtured, and giving each woman access to that which she already knows.
You don’t need to know anything. You don’t need to practice yoga already. It doesn’t matter if you have specific health needs. ALL WOMEN ARE WELCOME!
