This live streamed online class is run on the Zoom platform. For details on how to use this please check the online yoga class brief.

You will need some yoga props such as 1 mat, 1 belt, 4 blocks (or more), 2 blankets, 1 bolster, 1 chair or stool, a firm plank or wooden stick, a light piece of material to cover your eyes when lying down on your back. You may use alternative props, such as,

* Blanket = Thick towels, cushions
* Bolster = 2 big kitchen rolls or a thick pillow rolled on tightly and secured in a blanket
* Brick = a thick book, e.g., dictionary, a kitchen roll on its end, thick cushions
* Belt = a long - non stretchy - scarf

Number of participants will be limited to 12. Zoom login details will be sent to those who have booked.

If you would be interested but this time is not suitable for you let me know in case I may be able to arrange yet another slot.

Yoga for the immune system with Laura Potts - Virtual workshop

Sun, 17 May 2020
10:00am - 12:00 pm
Sheffield Yoga Centre (S6)
Laura Potts
£12
Open to all

This is a virtual workshop.
This workshop will show students how to practise to support the immune system, using sequences devised by BKS Iyengar and Mira Mehta. Inversions are really valuable to enhance immunity, so ideally students should be able to practise Sirsasana (head balance) and Sarvangasana (shoulder balance) but alternatives will be given so the workshop can benefit everyone.
Laura has been practising this programme often over the last couple of months and will be happy to try and answer any questions as well.

Restorative workshop with breathing awareness with Pascale Vacher - Virtual workshop

This is a virtual workshop.
This restorative workshop focuses on breathing awareness. It presents (a much simplified version of) the “Iyengar Yoga for the Respiratory System” sequence by Lois Steinberg, an Advanced Iyengar Yoga teacher. We will look at the keys mechanisms of the physical breath (and immune system) and explore how to adapt some some yoga poses to practise when breathing is restricted and energy level are very low.
It will be a 2 hrs programme suitable for students will at least 2 years of Iyengar yoga experience and would be limited to 14 students. This programme involves some (optional) supported inversions.

Developing a home practice with Emma Rattenbury - Virtual workshop

Sun, 31 May 2020
10:00am - 12:00 pm
Sheffield Yoga Centre (S6)
Emma Rattenbury
£12
Open to all

This is a virtual workshop.
It can be challenging to start and maintain a regular home practice, especially now that we are all staying at home for long periods of time. But your home practice is going to be so important to you during these different times and at home is where you are truly doing yoga. Home practice will transform your yoga and your life as a whole.
In this virtual online workshop, we will consider why it matters, what the challenges are and how to overcome these, as well as going through at least one practice routine to get you started.
