Yoga House | What’s new

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Dear Yogis, 


Our hearts sang last week with all the love that was shared on our birthday and then over the Valentine’s Self Love & Acceptance Weekend. 
We had such wonderful responses from Sasha’s Love Yourself Yin & Restore Workshop and we want to highlight more upcoming workshops. 

Recent research has shown that lockdowns have caused a reduced commitment to self care and we are finding it increasingly hard to keep to our schedules and routines. To help remedy this, we have some great Class Offers including Bring a Friend for Free Passes.


We have some amazing YH Live Guests to tell you about – this weekend Andrew McGonigle (aka Dr Yogi) joins us to discuss injuries in yoga and caring for your body. You can catch up on all our YH Live chats HERE

We also take a look at Alex’s Intermediate Pilates Workshop which offers a deeper and progressive view at mat work.
Alice has her Building Resilience Workshop in March and shares a 15 minute Yin reset sequence for you. Our four other upcoming workshops offer chances to
play, explore, rest & restore. 


And finally, if you have missed your favourite class or weekend workshop, drop an email to support@yogahouselondon.co.uk and can arrange a recording to be sent to you through our On Demand Service.

 
 
We have just opened up some great offers 

12 Online Classes for £70 (instead of 10 classes)
*offer open to purchase until mid March – once taken passes expire within 3 months from purchase date.

For members – invite a friend for FREE during February and March *1 free pass per member per month. Just email us at support@yogahouselondon.co.uk the clients name and we can add the free pass.

Are you looking to take your Pilates practice further? 
Take a look at Alex’s Intermediate Workshop coming up on February 28th.

The classical Intermediate matwork was created by Joseph Pilates and originally designed to move smoothly through each exercise with transition, without stopping. During the workshop we will be introducing this idea of moving from one exercise to another and learning some of the transitions. Take a look at the below video to get an idea.

There will be lots of time to play and get to grips with the new exercises. This will be a dynamic workshop, involving mostly intermediate and a few advanced exercises as well as some inversions, followed by a long stretch. We will also use this workshop to troubleshoot any other exercises, helping you feel confidence and strong within your practice.
 
Book Alex’s Workshop
Here’s a 15 minute yin yoga sequence designed to help you relieve tension in your body and mind. The sequence is short enough to be incorporated into your lunch break or you might enjoy it at the end day to unwind. The sequence focuses on opening the front and sides of the body, often areas which can become restricted, especially after prolonged periods of time on the computer. We recommend using a timer on your phone, setting it to 3 minutes for each pose, although if 3 minutes feels too long make sure you come out of the pose and rest whenever you need to. 
Props
1 bolster or bed pillow
2 bricks or 2 books (optional)
Constructive Rest
Begin on your back with knees bent and feet on the floor. Allow your lower back to settle and the belly to soften. You may wish to close your eyes and have hands on the belly. Focus on the inflow and outflow of the breath in the nostrils and take this time to consciously slow down your breath – breathing into the full circumference of your rib cage. Imagine any stress or strain from your day so far melting away. You may wish to hug the knees into the chest at the end of the 3 minutes.
Twisted Roots
Take the arms out wide with the palms facing up, if you are limited with space create a cactus shape with your arms instead. Lift the feet off the floor and draw the knees towards your belly, then lower the legs over to the right, keeping both shoulder blades in contact with the earth. The knees can either stack on top of each other or you can cross the left knee over the right as shown in the picture. Consider bringing a bolster or pillow under the legs for extra support. Breathe into the left side of the body and allow the shoulders and arms to relax fully into the earth with each outbreath. Repeat on the left side. 
Sphinx
Roll over onto your belly, you may wish to lie here for a moment and feel the breath move into the back of your body. When you are ready place the elbows under the shoulders with the forearms parallel to each other. If this back bend feels too deep then move the elbows forward beyond the shoulders and fold the forearms in front of each other so more of your belly and ribs can rest on the floor. Breathe slowly into the front of the body and keep the jaw relaxed.
Reclining Butterfly
Place the bolster (or pillow) length ways behind you and ease yourself back, consider supporting the back of your head with a rolled blanket or small cushion should you need to. Bring the feet together and open the knees wide, consider using blocks (or books) under the thighs to support the legs. Breathe slowly into the front of the body and allow the arms to drape alongside you, becoming heavy with the exhale.

Final Note
In January Walkers crisps and KFC took over our Catford reception area for their new prime time tv ad, it took us a good 4 hours to strip out the reception of all our plants and furniture for a 2 day build of a barber shop. Spot Catford Shopping Centre and Us –  You can watch the ad here It’s amazing how much work goes into a tv ad for a few seconds.

Yoga House Birthday, Re:Earth, juice cleanses, workshops and IGLive sessions, recipe and more..

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Dear Yogis, 

IT’S OUR 3rd BIRTHDAY!
On Wednesday 10 February 


What a three years it has been! We have evolved some much, growing stronger and learning to adapt and change. At the core of Yoga House is Yoga. A gift we are blessed to share with you.

We have some party plans to share with you and you can enter our great birthday giveaway for prizes including a membership, yoga mat and €100 voucher.

This February, we have teamed up with the wonderful Re:Earth to help restore Mother Earth with the practice of Yin. We have six fantastic workshops coming up and Lydia has joined the list with a Water Mandala Master Workshop. 

We are so excited to announce some new YH Live Sessions – Andrew McGonigle (Dr Yogi) will be joining us on Instagram to discuss supporting students with injuries.

And for our 3rd birthday we’ve teamed up again with presscription juices to give you a discount code on their super healthy and extra delicious juice cleanses. 

And finally what is a birthday without cake?
Check out the yummiest chocolate peanut butter treats. 

As we can’t have a party this year, to celebrate we have a free, relaxing sound bath for you.

Join Kasia on Wednesday 10th February
at 1pm for a FREE Birthday Sound Bath
.

.
The perfect way to spend your lunchtime. We hope you can join us. 
Join Our Birthday Sound Bath
We have a fantastic GIVEAWAY with some amazing prizes from us and our sponsors!

LOOKING BACK
 
We have partnered up with Re:Earth – created to restore Mother Earth by planting more trees. For the month of February we will be donating £1 for each student that attends Kasia’s Yin & Alchemy Bowl Class | Fridays | 6pm.

Blue Carbon coastal ecosystems – like mangrove forests – are 5-10 times more effective than a rainforest at removing carbon from the air. They protect from rising seas and flooding and provide important habitats for marine life – meaning that protecting and restoring coastal habitats is a good way to reduce climate damage and replenishing our ecosystems.
 

In February Re:Earth are supporting Tree Nation in Madagascar. They hire local villagers to plant trees in two locations in the North West of the island (Vilamatsa and Papamena).
We have SIX amazing workshops to offer you from our wonderful teaching family. 
All workshops include recorded access if you can’t attend live

PRESSCRIPTION JUICES
SUPER HEALTHY, SUPER TASTY JUICE CLEANSES


Thank you to everyone that has asked about our juice cleanses on IG stories. 
We’ve been trying different cleanses from Presscription Juices and they are delicious, refreshing and super healthy. 

The juices are formulated using old-press machines and are 100% raw and unpasteurised, you can choose your cleanse programme HERE
 
The shots are also delicious and give you a great, smooth kick during the day! We can also highly recommend the almond milk and cacao cure, the best chocolate milk ever….(without dairy or refined sugar).

It’s a wonderful way to cleanse, filter and look after your body, skin and organs. They deliver really quick and the guide that comes with the juices are really useful and informative.

If you have any questions they are really supportive and have an experienced team of experts from nutritionists and chefs to holistic and homeopathic practitioners and can personally guide you through what is best.

The last time we wrote about the Presscription cleanses lots of our students took up the cleanse programmes and their feedback has been great.

Here’s a 15% discount on all their cleanses using code yogahouse15 at checkout.

Dear Yogis, 

We may be still just be in January but this year has already been packed with new adventures and new challenges. Here at Yoga House we have been keeping busy and we are super excited to update you with all the new things we have in store for you.

Coming up we have:
Six New Workshops

Two New YH Live Sessions
New Teacher to announce


Our workshops are designed for you to find some precious time. We have workshops to help you develop your practice, to help you find rest, to boost your mood and to play. You will receive a recording if you can’t attend live to do in your own time. 

We have two amazing guests joining us on our Instagram Live Sessions, each an expert in their own field. These sessions are free and you can catch up on our growing back catalog any time you like. Click Here

We are also starting a six-week beginners yoga course for any yogis out there who are just beginning or would like to learn the fundamentals of yoga. This course is great for all levels as you will have time to understand the basics of the posture that you may have missed in a faster paced class. 

And finally, we introduce the newest member of the YH family – Annie Edwards. Annie has been teaching with us for two weeks now and her Mindful Flow classes are blissful magic (Every Wednesday 18.30 online)

We have SIX amazing Workshops to offer you from our wonderful teaching family.

We are so happy to have Catford local Annie Edwards join the Yoga House teaching family. Annie has been teaching yoga in London since 2007. She is inspired by the joy, fearlessness and enchantment of movement – but only truly came to know the power of yoga during injury and deep heart healing.
During Annie’s 18.30 Wednesday classes expect explorative movement accompanied by her favourite poems, sutras and playlist. Annie’s favourite poem is Wild Geese by Mary Oliver. 
 
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting–
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Welcoming 2021

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Dear Yogis, 

We made it! What a journey 2020 has been with so many twists and turns – we all had to learn to adapt quickly. We had to continually find our inner centre, to try and find some form of balance and stability in the world around us, we really do hope your yoga practice helped you in some way with this.

In today’s newsletter we build on hope with 10 reasons to be grateful. We also take a look at our ability to embrace change and how we can take it forward in a positive way.
 
We also take a look at what’s happening in our expanding online schedule with a new class and a new teacher for you. We have a great online workshop to help boost your immunity and mood this Winter. 

Have you got your 2021 Mantra yet? We have some great ideas from our community. We also have a healthy treat recipe for you and some top podcast and book recommendations to inspire you into the New Year. 

Welcome to Yoga House 2021.

OUR ONLINE SCHEDULE | SEVEN DAYS A WEEK

How to Boost Your
Immunity & Mood in Winter
Yoga & Nutrition

With Kasia Blackwell
& Zannie Krogh

Saturday 30th January  
2-4pm | Online | £15
BOOK HERE
They say humans are creatures of habit. We don’t like change and fear the unknown. This can seem strange as the only thing certain in life is that things will change. John Lennon once said: “Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.”
 
Why do we fear change? Why do we stay in jobs we don’t like, relationships we have outgrown and hold on to habits that no longer serve us? This is part of our survival instinct. We want to know the outcome to feel safe. There is nothing wrong with this, but when the fear becomes overwhelming, it can hold us back from truly living our lives.
 
So how can we embrace change? Firstly, we can take a look at how we were able to adapt to last year. We had to change our daily routine, our way of life and how we interact with others. And we did it and are undoubtable stronger for it (whether you know it or not). We didn’t ask for this change in life events, as often is the way, but we were able to change.
 
It’s now time to look at what we do want to change in our lives. Draw on the lessons from the past and know we are able to make the changes necessary to step closer to the lives we truly want. Know that however rocky the journey, we can get ourselves to a more stable place.
 
Yoga is powerful in assisting change. It cultivates a deep grounding in our body, mind and spirit to help us navigate challenges more calmly. It helps us draw on our true inner intentions and ability to trust our intuition over the many outside voices. Our practice is also always there for us, no matter what is happening externally.
The cheer and pretty lights of December maybe fading away, but that doesn’t mean it’s time crawl back under the duvet until Spring. If you are struggling for joy, we have put together 10 reasons to be grateful this January.
 
1. Sunrise | A true gift of nature that occurs every day. As less of us are commuting, we have more of a chance to watch the dawning of the day. You can also join our weekday sunrise classes at 7am.
 
2. Our Bodies | This may be the time of year you are meant to look at your body and point at the bits you hate and vow to change. These body parts are actually quite valuable and we should be very grateful to have them. You can try doing a body scan from your toes to your crown of your head, naming each body part and giving it love. 
 
3. Our Health | While being surrounded by adverts for this diet and that health fad, just take a minute to be grateful for the health you have. The breath in your lungs, the beating of your heart and all the body functions that work silently to make you you.

4. A Cup of Tea | A hug in a mug. There are so many wonderful teas in the world, each with their own healing properties and all with the ability to bring a smile to your face. We can’t wait to be back in the studios filling our teapots for you.
 
5. Music | Smell is meant to have the strongest memory tigger, but everyone has at least one song that takes them back to an exact time and a place again. Music has the power to change your mood in minutes.

6. Quiet Moments | When there is no work, no chores and your phone is out of battery and you can just be. When was the last time you had a quiet moment? If you can’t remember, you should try our Tuesday night meditation class with Ryan at 8pm.
 
7. Yoga | Yoga means different things to different people and that is the beauty of it.
There are many styles and ways of teaching and it evolves as we do. The word Yoga means ‘to yoke’ – to come together, a union. Yoga has given us a community that we
are so very grateful for.

8. Love | Love may sometimes be hard to see, but it is always there. The missing we have for family and friends – that’s love. When you step on to your mat to practice – that’s love for yourself. Take time throughout your day to notice the love around you.

9. Ourselves | We often think about ourselves as just a container. Many new year’s resolutions are how to change/improve our external appearance. We need to give some appreciation and love to ourselves within – we are pretty great.

10. This one is for you | What are you grateful for? There are many studies that show a practice of gratitude leads to a happier mind. You don’t need a journal to do this, you can just write on any bit of paper, or in your calendar or notes section of your phone, one thing a day you are grateful for.
Mantra – A tool used to plant an intention deep within your unconscious mind.
Use the mantra to grow your intention and let it blossom into reality. 

Your thoughts become your beliefs
Your beliefs become your actions
Your actions become you habits
Your habits become your values
& Your values become your destiny
– Gandhi

 
If you haven’t set a Mantra for 2021 yet, why don’t you take a look over some of the ones shared by our community on Instagram:
I am at peace because I am good trying my best
Just keep breathing
The body of mine is strong and can overcome anything. Keep pushing and don’t give up
I’m a good person and I have good intentions
I am strong
I am loved. I am loving
I am well. All is well
Calm acceptance
I have faith in my capacity to rise to challenges
Trust in Love
Live in the present
I am here

Yoga House | Looking Ahead

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Dear Yogis, 

As the end of the year draws near, it’s time to reflect and notice what this year has brought us.

Today is the Winter Solstice. Although the darkest day, it marks the start of the return to lighter days. We are going to take a deeper look into this powerful and potent day and the positive change the astrological charts have in store for us.
 
We are here for you throughout the festive period with a special online schedule. Only closing on Christmas and Boxing Day but you can request any class recording should you still wish to practice. We also have a special online New Year’s Day Gong Bath from Junior. This will be magical way to start the year by tuning into the universal vibrations.
 
We have a big thank you to you all and Kasia shares a beautiful playlist to enjoy on this powerful Solstice Day. 

And there’s still a chance to buy Yoga House gift vouchers as presents, that can be emailed on Christmas Day.

Today we welcome the Winter Solstice. The darkest day of the year. The winter solstice is the day of the year with the fewest hours of daylight, and it marks the start of astronomical winter. After the winter solstice, days start becoming longer and nights shorter as spring approaches. It’s seen as time of death and rebirth. With the light coming back, it’s a time for growth, expansion and stretching ourselves & becoming more of who we are.
 
Some believe this Solstice marks the start of a new astrological age – The Age of Aquarius.
Planet Saturn has been in power over much of this year. Saturn has a controlling element, a patriarchal feel, lots of rules and discipline. Planet Jupiter has been rising and is more expansive, it holds wisdom and deep spiritual learning. This dance between Saturn and Jupiter has led to the breaking down of systems and conflict – which we have all felt.

Today they come into conjunction at 0 degrees of Aquarius. This is seen by some as the launch of a new time.  As the planets begin to move apart, the feeling of constriction and rules will also be released. It will bring an energy of highest alignment and consciousness.

WINTER SOLSTICE RITUAL
At the darkest day it is most important to find rest and time for yourself.  The winter solstice celebrates the longest hours of darkness or the rebirth of the sun and is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection. In Pagan times the winter solstice was referred to as Yule and was a celebration of the Goddess (Moon) energy. It was believed that on this day, the moon would give birth to the sun.
Gather a candle, any sage or incense you have and a note book and pen.

Find a quiet place at home and light a candle. Watch the flame dance, hold in your mind the eternal cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth. Reflect on the year past, and consider that which would benefit you to let go of. Blow out the candle and sit in the dark and the quiet for as long as you wish. When you are ready, light the candle once more, and cast intentions for the year to come.
Journal any thoughts that arise. Light the sage and incense from the candle and cleanse yourself. Bathe in the scared smoke and begin your rebirth. 
PLAYLIST

Kasia has put together this beautiful playlist for you to enjoy on your Solstice. You can listen to it during your ritual, in a bath or just when you can get a few moments of peace.

Yoga House | Tier 3

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Dear Yogis, 

As London heads into Tier 3 from midnight tonight, we will need to close the doors to Yoga House once more. We are getting quite use to this and have our online yoga schedule ready to go, including pilates, online Gong Baths and alchemy bowls, our On Demand Service (for when you can’t make a class time) is also full of great content. We will continue to support you, seven days a week with our wonderful set of teachers to keep your yoga and pilates practice as stable as possible and provide all the encouragement we can.

All members have been emailed separately and all class passes will be extended for when we open again, you can also swap in studio passes for online by emailing us at support@yogahouselondon.co.uk. 

This time of year can already be difficult for our emotions and energies levels. It’s time to take Yoga off the mat and make sure we are checking in with ourselves and really doing what serves you, instead of what we think we should be doing. Letting go of how we think things should be and accepting how things are.
 
This year has shown us how important Yoga is to our mental health and wellbeing. Being able to ground and centre ourselves as life continues to provide challenges is a true gift. This gift is also the best thing we can do for our families and loved ones. Your self care provides a more nurturing and available soul for those around you.
 
We have been overwhelmed with all the love and heart warming support the Yoga House Community has given us this year. We hope we can continue to support you and ask that you support us by finding your mat and joining us online. We have many classes, passes and membership options available. Please get in touch if you want to find out more.
