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.

If you want to keep up to date with upcoming workshops you're welcome to follow the Facebook page, join the Facebook group or join our Yoga Family below.

Cultivating Kindness - Online - Saturday 23rd May

"We cannot do great things on this earth, only small things with great love" Mother Theresa

In times of change, when we feel the earth moving beneath our feet, we can steady ourselves by 'being present'. Letting go of fear and uncertainty, even for a few short minutes, can create space to breathe. Time to re-set a busy mind. Space to remember we are still a human being, not just a human doing!

Whilst our normal routine might be a distant memory, we can improve our mental health through small acts of self-care and kindness. Whether it's having a quiet cuppa, catching up with a loved one or running an errand for someone. Each releases chemicals in the brain, which leave us feeling more positive and optimistic. In this morning workshop, we'll talk a little more about the neuroscience behind kindness and compassion, and how it is helpful for us.

Suitable for yoga students with a little or a lot of yoga experience, the morning will include slow, mindful yoga practice to bring you gently in to the present moment, along with the pranayama practice of tibetan brahmari. The morning will end with the Buddhist meditation practice of metta or loving kindness. The meditation practice can be done from a sitting or laying position. You will need a yoga mat, blanket, cushions/blocks for sitting and warm layers. Please also have a pen and note paper.

New or returning students, please complete and return a registration form.

An Evening of Yoga & Sound - Todmorden - Friday 11th September

Unwind in to the weekend with a fabulous evening of yoga and sound. Yoga teacher, Claire Thomas and sound therapist, Craig Winterburn of Tree Drum, will be combining their many years of experience, to bring you an evening of gentle flowing yoga and the deeply resonant sounds of a gong bath journey. At the end of a busy week, this will be the perfect way to help your mind, body and soul, relax and rejuvenate.

During the mindful, flowing posture work, you will be welcomed back in to your body and encouraged to be fully present, whilst gently releasing the physical and emotional tensions of your week. This will be followed by a deeply relaxing and restorative sound journey, letting go of any further held tensions, emotions, or energetic blockages, inducing a sense of inner peace. You'll leave feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated for the weekend ahead.

The evening will be suitable for students with a regular yoga practice. Please bring a yoga mat, blanket and warm layers.

19:00-21:00 £20 —> BOOK NOW (16 spaces)

The workshop will run at The Todfellows Space, Oxford Street, Todmorden, OL14 5PU.

Movement, Mantra & Meditation - Todmorden - Saturday 7th 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.


10:00-16:00 £40

The workshop will run at The Todfellows Space, Oxford Street, Todmorden, OL14 5PU.
Please bring a packed lunch. Alternatively there are a number of cafes and sandwich shops within a few minutes walk of the venue.
