Summer Workshops (Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Sound Baths)

14th July – Restorative Yoga with Katie Maughfling
10-11.30am (£15)

Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing style of yoga. Each asana is held anywhere from 2-20 minutes, depending on the pose and the student. During this time you are supported by blankets, bolsters or pillows and blocks. The asanas are based on those found in a regular hatha or vinyasa class and there is a special sequencing of the poses as in a regular yoga class, whilst being held and supported throughout.

In all yoga we aim to let go of the ego, and even more so in restorative yoga. We use props to support the body in positions of comfort and ease to facilitate healing and relaxation. We have here a number of mats, blocks, blankets and bolsters, however do bring your own if you have them.

Cost is £15 and payment must be made in advance. A deposit is required to secure your place. Please contact Katie for further details.

Restorative Yoga with Katie Maughfling – Summer/Autumn 2017 dates

Restorative Yoga with Katie Maughfling (Yoga with Katie)image1

Restorative yoga is a relatively new style of yoga. It was developed in 1937 by B.K.S. Iyengar to help students release into yoga asanas (poses) without stress or strain and so has the benefit of assisting in recovery from injury or illness.

Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing style of yoga. Each asana is held anywhere from 2-20 minutes, depending on the pose and the student. During this time you are supported by blankets, bolsters or pillows and blocks. The asanas are based on those found in a regular hatha or vinyasa class and there is a special sequencing of the poses as in a regular yoga class, whilst being held and supported throughout.

In all yoga we aim to let go of the ego, and even more so in restorative yoga. Holding these supported asanas for minutes at a time can be mentally challenging as we learn to watch the mind as the body stills.

Yoga with Katie is now offering Restorative Yoga classes at the Cheltenham Holistic Health Centre. We have here a number of mats, blocks, blankets and bolsters, however do bring your own if you have them.

These restorative classes will be 90 minutes long and will have the additional benefit of a yoga nidra meditation at the end.

Cost £12 per person, per session. Bookings essential. Email yoga@katiemaughfling.co.uk for more information and booking.

Katie also runs weekly vinyasa, hatha and teen yoga classes at the centre.

What people say about these classes:

“Bliss. Beginning with seemingly small movements to encourage your body to release tension. Using props, such as bolsters and blankets for comfort, very much guided by your own bodies’ needs. Surprisingly powerful poses culminating in a period of calming meditation. Katie expertly guides you through this so there is no need to be nervous for those joining for the first time! Really beneficial and great to take time out to restore and relax. Snoring optional.”

“The class was very gentle, but surprisingly effective.  I felt a lot more relaxed and peaceful afterwards and it freed me from the stiffness I usually feel in my neck.”

Yin Yoga Workshop – Sunday 11th December

Yin Yoga Workshop with Ann Morley
Sunday 11th December, 10.30-12.30. £20 per person.

A Guide to Yin Yoga - Ann Morley

Yin Yoga is a beautifully relaxed style of yoga where the focus is on the inside; the sensations of the breath and body, and observing our reactions to those. We hold the stretches for a few minutes at a time to allow the best benefit to our connective tissues. It gives the body time to relax fully into the postures, whilst calming and stilling the mind, take the time to just be.

 

‘Yin’ is the soft, relaxing, accepting counterparty to the ‘yang’, the fast, dynamic, need to achieve that dominates a lot of our modern lifestyles; we need both yin and yang to come into balance.

The class is suitable for all levels. If you have any health concerns, please let Ann know before the class. Most things can be accommodated with some adjustment to the poses. Yoga mates and props are available to borrow, just remember to wear loose fitting clothes that allow you to stretch easily.

For more information, please see: www.annmorleyyoga.co.uk/yin-workshop.

Ann is an experienced yoga practitioners, having practised since 2003. She trained to teach at Yogacampus, London and is accredited with Yoga Alliance.

To get in touch with Ann directly to book your place, please email on annmorleyyoga@gmail.com or ring on 07521 684883.
