TumbleDown.jpg

Tumble Down the Rabbit Hole

Yoga for the Soul

Tumble down the rabbit hole and into another world deep within. Step into the room; warm, safe and dimly lit. 

Arrive on your mat and bathe in the joy of not having to talk to anyone or do anything, other than just be with yourself, gently and quietly. Be like water – flow and yet at times be still.

In the background, the sound of beautiful music playing; a heart-warming voice, a hand drum, melodies sent from the angels and the vibration of the singing bowl; a true feast for the ears.

Tantric yoga practices will be woven together – pranayama (breathing exercises), gentle floor-based asana (postures), mudras (gestures), mantra (sound vibration) and a 20-minute Yoga Nidra (deep guided relaxation) – to help develop a greater awareness of the subtle energy body and the Divine that permeates all life.

The session may take you into that liminal space, where true healing takes place and where magic awaits.

A delight and rejuvenation for the body, mind and soul.

Good Friday Yoga to celebrate the Full Pink Moon
Apr
19
10:00 am10:00

Good Friday Yoga to celebrate the Full Pink Moon

The Full Pink Moon heralds the appearance of ‘moss pink’, one of the first spring flowers and falls in Libra, the sign of balance.

There is a notion that sometimes you have to shake things up in order to find a better equilibrium. We might think of balance as quiet steadfastness, but in fact balance is in constant motion; a dance. Life is one big dance, requiring flexibility, adjustment and the ability to hold steady and yet allow the movement.

Join me to acknowledge with full respect and gratitude the significance of Good Friday, and at the same time celebrate the energy and light of the full moon and all that this gives to us.

Together we will link breath with movement to flow through a sequence, designed to encourage the dance that is the balance, not too tight, not too loose, creating steadiness as we balance strength and flexibility, and creating a sense of calmness and centeredness in the process. The session will finish with relaxation. Breath awareness will be encouraged throughout.


WHERE: St Martin's Community Centre – downstairs in the main hall.

COST: £12 adult drop-in or £50 for 5 tokens payable in advance, £7 student drop-in.

WHAT TO BRING: A yoga mat and blanket

WHO CAN ATTEND: Everyone is welcome including beginners. No need to book.

“Everything that happens in the Universe starts with Intention” - Deepak Chopra

VENUE: St Martins Community (downstairs)

COST: £11 for adults, £6 for students or usual voucher system applies.

In the Indian tradition it is said that what you do on the first day of the year sets the tone for the new year. So what better way to begin 2019 and set your CLEAR INTENTION for the year ahead than by getting on your mat and PRACTISING YOGA (ditch the resolutions, they don’t work and merely make you feel bad about yourself!).

Together we will CELEBRATE the NEW YEAR with an active and energising yoga practice, linking breath with movement so that we can clear our the old and create more space for the new. We will finish with a short and yet powerfully transformative Yoga Nidra where you may truly plant your seed of intention for the year ahead.

At the end of the class, you are invited to join Emma as you privately write down your intention(s) for 2019 on a piece of paper and seal this in an envelope which Emma will retain and send to you at the end of 2018 – there is power and magic in clear intention!

Together we will enjoy a flowing ASANA (posture) practice linking breath with movement and checking in with our own wisdom to see where we can adjust things (alignment and thought process). It’s in this way that we can start embodying change, encouraging us to LET GO and do things differently! We will finish the session with a chakra balancing RELAXATION, leaving you feeling centred and grounded ahead of the new year.

Those who wish will then have the opportunity to stay on and join Emma in a BURNING BOWL CEREMONY where we privately write down all the things we do not want to take with us into 2019 before popping the paper in an envelope, which Emma will take home and burn in her bowl.

Glastonbury Yoga & Wellbeing Retreat

Join Emma for another truly empowering and enriching spiritual adventure in the heart chakra of the world, Glastonbury.

This heart warming and transformative retreat will be held at the stunningly beautiful and peaceful Lower Coxbridge House, a rare gem located three miles away from Glastonbury.  Surrounded by quintessentially English farmland, this really is the place to get away from it all, where you cannot help but slow down and feel a greater connection to nature and your inner Goddess too.  

The yoga classes will be taught in the light and airy yoga space with large French windows opening onto wooden decking offering panoramic views of Glastonbury Tor.

Accommodation is available for up to nine people in a combination of twin rooms, double rooms and single rooms in the main House and a yurt in the field.  There’s one double en-suite room available, with all the other rooms sharing both a shower room and a bathroom. There are also outdoor showers for those wanting to get closer to nature and shower with a view of the Tor in the distance – sublime!

Yummy vegetarian food made with locally sourced and predominantly organic produce will be lovingly prepared by the amazing chef, Olga, who is truly passionate about healthy vegetarian food. Olga has many years of experience catering with both raw and cooked foods for yoga retreats and this is evident in the quality and love of the eating experience.

There is no doubt that the retreat will be an unforgettable experience, which will allow you to take time out from your daily routine, enjoy the spiritual and Goddess energy of Glastonbury with its powerful ley lines, stunning Tor and amazing crystal shops, and indulge in some uplifting, healing and rejuvenating yoga. 

What does the retreat include?

  • Accommodation (single rooms at an additional supplement for the weekend).
  • Yoga sessions including asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), guided relaxation, guided meditation and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). Bhajans (singing of devotional songs) offered too.
  • Healthy and delicious vegetarian breakfasts, lunch & evening meals.

Bank holiday Monday - a class to celebrate Beltane

Beinspired Yoga_ Flowers_26.JPG

Join me on bank holiday Monday to celebrate the cross quarter festival of Beltane and tap into this marvellously uplifting and energising energy!

Beltane represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer, when Earth energies are at their strongest and most active.  All of life is bursting with potent fertility and at this point in the Wheel of the Year, the potential becomes conception. Abundant fertility is the central theme! It is about sexuality and sensuality, passion, vitality and joy. A brilliant moment in the Wheel of the Year to bring ideas, hopes and dreams into action, and have some fun in the process. 

So together we will aim to have some fun, as we link breath with movement, while having awareness of energies of alignment and finishing with a relaxation. Hopefully we'll gain greater clarity on our ideas, hopes and dreams and putting these into action, as we tap into the strong Beltane energy. All welcome, no need to book.

Where: St Martin's Community Centre (whole downstairs room)

When: Monday 7 May 2018

Time: 10-11.15am

Cost: £11 adult drop-in, £6 child drop-in, £45 for 5 tokens paid in advance

Who can attend: Everyone! Please ensure I am aware of injuries, pregnancies etc.

What to bring: Mat and blanket for relaxation

Do I need to book? No, drop-in class, turn up on the day
