STUDIO UPDATE

MATS ARE NOW FREE FOR ALL!
We will no longer be charging for mats!
We do still encourage you to bring your mat along. Practice on your own mat is a really beautiful thing and allows a deeper connection to your own space. 
However, if you don’t want to take your mat to work with you before practice, there will be a mat waiting for you. 

THIS WEEKEND’S WORKSHOP | STRENGTH FOR YOGIS

With Alice Billerey 
Our wonderful Alice is back this weekend IN STUDIO with a fantastic workshop. 
Strength for Yogis is a workshop that invites you to explore how we can adapt and modify postures and shapes that already exist within yoga, in order to improve and increase our strength.
Who is this workshop for?
✨ Yogis who already practice passive stretching styles and wish to bring about more balance to their bodies
✨ Yogis who are interested in strength training but don’t know where to start / are intimidated by the gym
✨Yogis who wish to improve their mobility (strength & flexibility)
✨Yogis who might have a reoccurring ‘niggle’ or pain whilst practicing & wish to explore how strength training can help to build more physical resilience (and possibly reduce pain).
This workshop will be highly practical and explorative with some anatomical discussion. I hope that you’ll also take away a sense of empowerment and understanding that there is no 1 correct alignment for many of the yoga postures. Instead there are endless possibilities depending on what the intention is behind the pose.
Curious?! Come along!

SATURDAY 6 AUGUST | 2-4PM | £20 | LEE STUDIO

BE A WARRIOR, NOT A WORRIER

Take a journey with us into yogic philosophy and learn why the Warrior Poses became a part of our practice
Warrior Poses – also known as the Vira poses or the Virabhadrasana series, were exercised to pay homage to the exploits of Vīrabhadra, a mythical warrior in Hindu texts.
The tale begins with the failure of priest Daksha to invite his daughter, Sati and her husband, Shiva (the ruler of the universe – and the first yogi) to a ceremonial sacrifice.
The Story of Virabhadra
Angered and saddened, Sati takes herself to the sacrifice nonetheless. Here she enters a row with her father and is left humiliated, leading her to throw herself onto the sacrificial fire and perish.
Devastated and angry, Shiva tore out some of his hair, where it fell to the ground. From this lock suddenly rose a fearful and dutiful warrior named Virabhadra.
Primed and ready to defend, Virabhadra is sent by Shiva to kill Daksha and his guests. Once Shiva arrives to see the revenge complete, he is filled with sorrow and regret. Shiva finds Daksha’s body and brings him back to life.
Later Shiva assimilates the dutiful warrior back into his own being once more, and begins to grieve in meditation. Finally, Sati is reborn and the two are in love once again.
While open to interpretation, this famous tale acts as a reminder that violence and revenge aren’t effective to reduce one’s suffering, which will only take on new forms like Shiva’s regret or sorrow.
So where do the poses come from?

Warrior I represents Virabhadra arriving at Daksha’s ceremony with a sword in each hand.

Warrior II represents Virabhadra focusing on his victim preparing to strike.

Warrior III represents Virabhadra throwing himself and his swords forward during as he kills Daksha.
