Preparing for Summer at Yoga House

*|MC:SUBJECT|*


As Spring draws to a close, we can see in nature that things are no longer buds, flowers are blooming into their full potential.


As nature prepares for Summer, it is time for us to do the same.


This is the time to make change that will ensure your Summer will be filled with even more happiness and abundance. June 20th we greet the arrival of the Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year. Arriving at the mid point of the year may feel daunting and bring up fears of lack of accomplishment. The truth is that we have just been planting our seeds, we still have time for a miraculous year, where goals are met and dreams realised.


Working with this season, Yoga House has put together a Workshop program to smooth and support your transition into Summer.


And talking of dreams realised, it has been a month since our 200HR Yoga Teacher Trainees graduated! You may have joined one of their community classes or cover classes. We are thrilled at how well they are getting on. We are so excited to announce our next shorter 20HR CPD Course for teachers – The Art of Sequencing & Theming with Kasia and Lydia.

JUNE WORKSHOPS

Working with the changing of seasons, we have YH Nutritionist Zannie being joined by experienced teacher Annabel guiding a Menopause Workshop. Both Zannie and Annabel are expertly trained in helping people navigate the changes and difficulties Menopause can bring. You will come away with a toolkit including nutrition advice, breath practices, a gentle flowing yoga practice and a restorative pose that you can use at home whenever you need.


It’s often said the Summer Solstice is a time of new beginnings; with the changing of the seasons, we say goodbye to a long, stagnant period of self-reflection and welcome the fiery energy of the sun to propel us forward. This very physical changing of the seasons is a powerful time to manifest spiritual transformations. Kasia and Patricia are hosting magical Workshop with Cacao Aroma Yin & Alchemy Bowl Sound Bath to nourish your body, mind, heart and soul during this powerful time.


We are also hosting workshops on Family Yoga, A.u.R.a Regression & Energy Clearing and Embodied Flow to Rest. Read on to find out more.

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

We have two Full Moon offerings for you this week 🌕

May full moon in Sagittarius comes with an invitation to believe in our dreams and to have more fun and adventure.


On Saturday you can get deeper into a state of mediation with our KIRTAN session by Dan then on Sunday move and unwind with a super soft and nourishing Embodied Flow to Rest with Kelly 🌀


This Saturday 25th May 5.30-6.30pm YH Catford Dan is back with a soul uplifting Kirtan session. ✨


Kirtan is a yogic practice of call and response mantra chanting. The chants we sing are ancient Sanskrit mantras which are both beautiful and have a very powerful energy when chanted in community. You will be led through call and response chants/ Bhajan’s. Bhajan simply means “sharing”. Through chanting we begin a journey that focusses the busy mind on melodious mantras that are thousands of years old and have been chanted by communities over the centuries in the ancient language of Sanskrit. Eventually we will begin to detach from the deceptive surface layers of our turbulent minds and dive deep into our heart centre. Come to chant with us. 💖

*usual class booking


This Sunday 26th May 4-6pm YH Catford Kelly will guide us through an extended practice of Embodied Flow to Rest.

Join Kelly for this 2hr practice, every last Sunday of the month where we’ll feel into our edges and expand beyond them through movement, breath and rest.
Building from the ground up, we’ll play with our relationship to gravity and unravel habitual movement patterns to make space for moving more intuitively. After weaving together moments of movement and stillness, ease and effort, we’ll invite our cells to simmer softly, landing into grounding restorative shapes. All welcome!

SCHEDULE UPDATE

HOUSEKEEPING

Continuing our freshen up, we wanted to remind everyone about a few housekeeping points. These are things that make the studios a nice place for everyone to be and classes peaceful for all.

  1. MAT PLACEMENT

    Please use black floor stickers for your mats – this gives everyone equal room.

  2. MOBILE PHONES

    Please don’t bring your phones into the studio with you, give yourself a little break from technology as you practise and store them in lockers.

  3. CANCELLATION POLICY

    Our cancellation policy is 4 hours before class + you must remove yourself from class via the online booking system. Late arrivals (over 5mins) will be classed as cancellation. This policy is to allow as many students as possible to practice + not disturb those already in class.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

TEACHER FOCUS

Imir has been with Yoga House since we opened in 2018. We are blessed to have her knowledge and experience on our teaching team. She has recently returned from her travels and we thought we tell you a little more about her…


Imir has been practicing yoga since 2000, consistently studying to deepen her understanding of anatomy, the eight limbs of yoga and yoga as a way of life. She explores the traditional yoga systems, particularly Ashtanga Yoga, Dynamic Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Krama (the linking of postures together in sequence, building towards a key asana).


Imir’s teaching style is calm and friendly, her classes deep and challenging.


Join her in class Thursdays and Fridays | Hot Flow | Catford.

We have two Full Moon offerings for you this weekend, for something magical to close February 🌕

February full moon in Virgo comes with an invitation to live a healthier life, to declutter from what is not serving us and to practise being more more grounded.


On Saturday you can book Tarot reading with Emily then on Sunday unwind with a super relaxing soundbath under the copper pyramids with Nicola



This Sunday 25th Feb 6.30-7.45pm YH Catford Nicola is back with her magical Sound Bath under the copper Pyramids. ✨🔺✨


Using sound as a form of healing dates back to ancient cultures from as early as ancient Egypt, Greek, Chinese and Mayan civilisations, just to name a few.

If humans are made of 60/70% water and sound moves 4 x times faster through water than air, it’s reasonable to understand the impact sound vibrations can have on our bodies – on a physical and energetic level.

Join us for this super special SOUND BATH under copper framed pyramids.

The pairing of copper pyramids, gongs and crystal bowls
creates a sonic meditation that is designed to enhance
altered states of consciousness, allowing you to move
beyond the physical and awaken an expansive inner
journey while deeply relaxing the parasympathetic
nervous system.

included:

✨A super sonic sound bath
✨Two copper frame pyramids, 6ft and 8ft
✨Third Eye gong for visions, Earth Sound Creation gong
for deep grounding and altered states of consciousness
✨Short information on pyramid geometry, the amplifier of
energy

Expand and nourish yourself this weekend


And if you fancy something even more magical Emily will be at the studio with her tarot reading – bookings only please see details below.

Pincha workshop

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

A closer look at Pincha Mayurasana ~ Sat workshop with Kasia

This Saturday 17th Feb 2-4pm in Catford, Kasia will breakdown this beautiful, but not easy forearm balance.  

A two hour workshop covering how to prepare and strengthen the body for PINCHA MAYURASANA aka Feathered Peacock or Forearm Balance Pose, how to safely enter, exit and transition in and out of the asana. We will cover biomechanics of the pose – which parts of your body need flexibility and which ones require strength.

The forearm stand is a great intermediate step between a headstand and a freestanding handstand. Pincha Mayurasana is great for strengthening your arms and shoulders while also stretching your neck, chest, abdomen and back. It’s a fun, but challenging pose and this worksop will give you some useful tips and exercises to work on.

Workshops are a great way to take your practice further and play with some more challenging poses, also suitable for those attending for the first time. Trust in your body, you’re capable of more than you think.


The workshop will include:

How to warm and prep the body? Covering drills and the use of props

✨ How to come up? Covering different entries

✨ How to hold the position, what to look out for

✨ How to overcome the fear of falling

Progressions after the standard Pincha



Who is this Workshop for?

For all students who want to explore and take their practice that little bit further.
