    Calligraphy Yoga with Reuben Darling Khan

    Calligraphy Yoga with Reuben Darling Khan


    Calligraphy Yoga

    This movement practice originates from the lineage of the Shaolin temples of china, and is influenced by Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and more traditional Hatha yoga. It is an internal energy art form, with the focus of creating vitality, longevity and true inner health. Through unlocking the bodies natural desire to function in grace and equilibrium we aim to cultivate both inner peace, and outer strength, to better be able to meet the challenges of being alive in these times.

    I have been studying this practice for the past 4 years. More recently studying with Master Yang the originator of this work. My journey with embodiment practices started when I was very young, growing up in a family where dance, movement and music where and are very present. My passion for this work is rooted in bringing the joy of being alive through the physical expression of being in a body. Working toward cultivating the tools that are necessary for a grounded and healthy life.

    This practice is suitable for all ages, all levels of movers and has been shown to have amazing results working with injuries, imbalances and sickness. The movements meet you where you are at and are flexible in there expression, meaning that this is suitable for the advanced practitioner and the new comer, for the older and the young.

    The course will run for 8 weeks, meeting every tuesday morning from 7.30-9am starting October 30th and running through until December 18th.

    I am offering a discounted price for the whole course, this will be £50.
    For drop ins it will be £9 a session.

    Yoga Flow 'Spring Clean' Workshop with Gina

    Spring!! Inspired by nature- in classical Chinese five elements it is the 'time of the wood' – the time of birth, movement, strength and flexibility.
    The session focuses on ways to 'spring clean' the body and mind; eliminating toxins and increasing vitality. We'll find new pathways to 'release' and 'let go' as we explore the 7 chakras and major meridians; especially the Liver and Gallbladder (which represent Spring). Poses will be adapted to for all different levels but expect to be playfully challenged to your edge.
    Working with our senses we'll work our way to stiller, quieter postures finding deep nourishment and rejuvenation for mind and body. This is the necessary space and perspective to create Sankapla (intentions). Planting positive seeds for change.
    This workshop will include upbeat Yoga Flow, Detoxing kriyas, Meditation, Pranayama and lushiously deep relaxation to help us spring into SPRING!
    Xx Gina

    Change Your Posture, Change Your Life: CoreWalking with Jonathan FitzGordon

    Change Your Posture, Change Your Life: CoreWalking with Jonathan FitzGordon


    Change Your Posture, Change Your Life

    How much have you thought about the way that you stand? How well do you think you perceive yourself in space?

    The answer to both of those questions is likely "not much".

    Making simple changes to the way you stand can have profound effects on your daily life, pain issues and athletic performance.

    You will come out of this workshop with a whole new perspective on what it means to be upright in our world.

    Psoas Release Party!

    Deep in the bowl of your pelvis lies the body's most important muscle that you have probably never heard of. The Psoas muscle helps you stand, walk and is the warehouse for the unprocessed energy and trauma that can't be processed in the moment.

    Issues realted to the psoas can be both physical and emotional, including back, hip and groin pain as well as equally serious issues like depression and anxiety

    This workshop will teach you all that you need to know about the psoas and more. And it will set you on the road to healing and rebuilding your body.

    Introduction to CoreWalking

    The CoreWalking Program provides pain relief, healing, and techniques for aging gracefully. Using simple adjustments to the way you walk, stand, sit, and exercise—CoreWalking can have life-changing results. It offers specific bodywork tools that you can easily integrate into your daily routine to reverse whatever has been holding you back from your fullest life.

    This workshop is for people who suffer from any kind of pain, from discomfort to chronic, whether you deal with the impact of poor posture and alignment due to injuries, repetitive stress, excessive driving, and/or sedentary work, or struggle with sleep difficulties. Come learn to incorporate these movement techniques into every facet of your life, even while you sleep.

    Yoga Classes

    Jonathan's approach to yoga is both hardworking and fun with an emphasis on alignment and building core tone. The yoga classes compliment the Posture, Psoas and Walking Workshops.

    Bio
    With humor and a down-to-earth style, Jonathan Fitzgordon tailors his work approach to different needs, including people with sports injuries, women and men of all ages who are recovering from injuries, have undergone surgery, and/or want to avoid surgery; and those looking for ways to age gracefully in a world that puts up obstacles at every turn.
