Saturday 17th February 2018:  Heart Over Head Workshop  (1pm – 4pm)

Manchester Yoga Central, M17 1AB

Come and join this Valentine’s Day special workshop, where we will focus on inversion practice and opening up the heart chakra.  As Valentine’s Day arrives on the 14th February, it is the perfect time to encourage our hearts to take charge and become receptive to love from ourselves, as well as others.  Expect lots of backbends and meditations on Anahata so you can move forward with an open mind and open heart.
This workshop aims to give people the confidence to move further into their backbends, as well as the courage to tackle inversions (so you can physically start placing the heart over the head!)  The workshop will start with some breath work and meditation before then moving through an invigorating flow, interlaced with breakdowns and tips for achieving deeper backbends and sturdy inversions.
There will be a small goodie bag for each attendee and light, healthy refreshments at the end of the session to leave you glowing and optimistic for the year ahead.
Any level is welcome.
Price:  £25 per person

Saturday 8th September 2018:  Inner Strength Day Retreat (10am – 4pm)

The Annexe, Woodstock, OX20 1QQ

As the sunny days draw to a close and autumn begins to set in, it is important to manifest strength and stability within ourselves so we are ready to hibernate and rest.

Finding physical strength is an easier goal then maintaining an unwavering strength form within and it is this which we aim to turn towards during this magical day retreat.  We will be embracing strong asana throughout the day, channelling our inner strength and endurance.  Yet we will also focus on that strength we all have within ourselves –  the power we hold, which helps us to push through the day to day trials and tribulations we each encounter.

Held in a beautiful countryside setting, just outside Woodstock, this venue is a stunning mini getaway.  The day will involve two sessions of asana practice, along with some meditation and delicious vegetarian lunch.

This day retreat hopes to leave you empowered and inspired with yourself – a feeling which we so often lose in times of strain but is within us all.
