Alongside weekly classes, I also run weekend workshops in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire during the year. They are a wonderful opportunity to delve a little deeper in to areas that interest you. In a workshop, its possible to cover much more than during weekly classes.

Sunset Alpaca Yoga - Thursday 2nd September
Always wanted to meet an alpaca? Come and join me for an evening of outdoor yoga and acquaint yourself with our furry friends!
With a commanding view of Stoodley Pike, we'll roll out our yoga mats on the hills above Hebden Bridge for an evening of 'alpaca yoga'. At Apple Tree Farm Alpacas in Blackshawhead, we'll be joined by a friendly flock of furry blow-ins!! Gentle and inquisitive animals, I'm told that these lovely chaps are always up for a bit of fun and what better way to enjoy their company, than from a yoga mat.
As the sun sets for the evening, have fun, relax and practice yoga in the countryside, with these gorgeous chaps. Nosey by nature, they'll be keen to say hello and see what we're up to. They love to interact with visitors... if you take you attention off them, you may get a soft muzzle in your back reminding you where your attention should be!
Suitable for all. Grab your mat, bring some layers/sunscreen/midge spray and enjoy!

Movement, Mantra & Meditation - Sunday 21st November
What is yoga? According to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali:
'Yogaschitta vritti nirodhah - To block to the patterns of consciousness is yoga.'
The Yoga Sutras - all 195 of them - explain how this state of being, can be achieved. Cultivating awareness of our mental patterns, learning to analyse the influence of the three gunas - the three qualities of all nature - allows us to eliminate the negative influence of a particular guna and cultivate the positive qualities of the opposing state. Gradually bringing us to a point where the oscillating mind becomes steady.
During this day workshop with Claire Thomas, we will explore the meaning of this simple, yet profound, second verse of the sutras. Learning how we can draw on the different elements of yoga - as a science of living - to cultivate a state of constant and unbroken awareness, in meditation and in life.
The day will include guided asana, pranayama and yoga nidra, along with periods of mantra chanting and seated meditation. Suitable for students with some experience of yoga, who wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding, of the yogic philosophy which underpins the practical tools and techniques of yoga.
Sunday 10:00 - 16:00 £45 —> BOOK NOW
The workshop will run at The Zen Space, Broad Street, Spalding, Lincs PE11 1TB.
Please bring a packed lunch. Alternatively there are a number of cafes and sandwich shops within a few minutes walk of the venue.
