Foundations of Self Practice: A Series of Yoga Workshops
Having a self-practice is highly recommended for anyone who wants to reap the full benefits of yoga.
Self practice is not just an essential for when you travel or can’t make it to class, it’s a wonderful way to build your body awareness and connection. It’s not about watching videos online, it’s about learning to listen to the body and move in a way that makes you feel not just better but whole.
A strong self practice compliments your time spent in the studio. You can build on what you learn in class or use your self practice to explore the areas that might be weaknesses for you. It can be creative and exploratory time – but you need to know the fundamentals to build your best self-practice.
This series of workshops starts with Asana then moves into the more subtle or lesser known aspects of yoga including pranayama and meditation. All 5 are highly recommended for anyone serious about progressing their practice. We’ve planned them in a progressive manner, though it’s fine to dip in and out as your schedule permits.

Restorative yoga offers huge benefits for balancing the nervous system. We do not always want or need to choose a dynamic yoga practice. There are times when a restorative practice is much more indicated. A restorative practice can easily be cultivated in the comfort of one’s own home and can truly offer a sanctuary of peace and insight in a busy day to day to life. We will learn and practice a few simple postures and how to put them together in a coherent and beneficial sequence to bring a deep state of relaxation and to release body tension. This module is suitable for all, regardless of experience. Limited to 10 spaces.
