Workshops

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.

Candlelit Yoga for the Full Moon - Todmorden - Friday 13th December

In yoga the moon represents the feminine energy within us. It's qualities are said to be fluid, creative, calming and reflective. The moon influences the water element of nature, affecting tidal levels, the growth of plants and our own internal cycles. The more we become attuned to the cycle of the moon, the greater our understanding of how we experience these changes. At the full moon there is a heightened sense of creativity, energy and activity.

Wrapped up in the warmth of our practice space and starting late, we will enjoy an evening of candlelit yoga with light of the full moon shining brightly in the dark night sky. Centred around Chandra Namaskar, our practice will be inspired by the qualities of the moon. The evening will be flowing and mindful in nature and will include asana, mantra, meditation and guided relaxation. Filled with candles and toasty warm this will be a wonderful way to create a sense of peace and restore energy levels in the lead up to Christmas.

Suitable for students with some experience of yoga. Please bring your yoga mat, blanket and extra layers for the final relaxation.

A Day of Yantra & Mandala - Todmorden - Saturday 1st February

An uplifting day, learning how to create Yantras & Mandalas. These diagrams are sacred symbols representing wholeness and can be used as a tool for meditation. In this workshop with yoga teacher and artist Helena Turner, you will be guided step by step through the construction & painting of Gayatri Yantra.

Gayatri is the Goddess of collective wisdom and is worshipped as the light of learning. She protects us as we move towards deep inquiry and self-reflection. Gayatri Yantra is said to illuminate our path on that inner journey.

Creating a Yantra in this setting is a great way to immerse yourself in this ancient spiritual practice. You will gather all the tools necessary to create your own unique mandalas, learning valuable techniques to apply to future works of art and personal expression. Creating a Mandala or Yantra is a ritual which allows us time for deep self-reflection & healing, as well as tapping into our creative spirit.

Suitable for all, no previous art experience is required, all equipment will be provided along with an instructional booklet to continue this art form with confidence.

Cultivating a Home Practice - Hebden Bridge - Saturday 29th February

The motivation to try yoga varies enormously from one person to the next. Whatever our reason for attending class, we often find there is much more to yoga than we first thought. In time, the changes we experience from a regular practice, encourage us to make yoga a more integral part of our lives.

Along with attending workshops and retreats, it can be incredibly helpful to develop a 'sadhana' or home practice. Maybe you've tried it already, but didn't feel confident enough to keep going or perhaps, life just got in the way! By developing a simple practice, that fits our current needs, we create a space to support our development and growth as human beings. We are more in touch with our body which improves our health, but the real benefit is often seen in the space that is created for self-reflection and growth.

If you would like to learn more about practising at home, this day workshop is a great way to start your journey. Practical and interactive in nature, there will be periods of guided practice along with time for discussion and sharing of ideas. You'll be guided through creating a practice space, finding a good time and length for your practice, along with being given some suggestions and handouts and on what to include. We'll also talk about the barriers to practice and how we might overcome these.

The day will be suitable for students with some experience of yoga and will include asana, pranayama, guided relaxation, simple meditation and mantra chanting. If you're unable to attend regular classes and have been using online yoga resources, you may also find the day a helpful way to develop your own practice.
