The Course;

There is so much yoga available these days, it can feel like a circus, adding to feelings of inadequacy, comparison, worry, self doubt - taking us away from the essence of yoga. 

However we are all different; in our range of movement,  patterns in our minds, where we hold stress and how we breathe. Sometimes yoga can feel like we are trying to fit our bodies into shapes, forgetting about these differences and knowing how to work with rather than against them. 

This course aims to provide a space to explore your individual needs & adapt your practice to meet your unique needs. 

Expore a range of Mindfulness and meditation practices to cultivate a still more present mind.


This 5 day course will cover the 4 corner stones of a yoga practice; 

  • Asana - Postures -  mindful movement, using the body to realise holding patterns. Balancing strength & softness.
  • Pranayama - Breathing practices - learning how to breathe effectively - understand the link with your nervous system. How to use breathing to manage stress, anxiety and mood, quickly  and effectively. 
  • Yoga philosophy - Patanjalis yoga sutras - learn the art of compassion, patience, acceptance, gratitude - qualities  at the heart of yoga, 
  • Mind -Meditation , mindfulness, concentration, mantra 
  • Relaxation - Yoga nidra, the queen of relaxation practices,


Deepen your awareness and understanding of the link between the body, mind & breath. Exploring Yoga frameworks such as the Koshas (sheaths |Layers) & Chakras (Energetic maps).


Take these practices off your mat and into your everyday life - learn to live with more ease, compassion & connection with your body & life.
