Yoga House | Your Sunday Just Got Better

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

NEW BREATH WORK CLASS
 
STARTING SUNDAY 13TH JUNE | 4PM | CATFORD STUDIO
Our breath is the key to our life and yet we are so disconnected from it. This class will look at the power of the breath and how it can transform your mood, release tension and change your life.

New teacher Pippa will work through practices to charge your breath to gently shift any stuck emotions or energy that are held in your system. You will then integrate anything that showed up in the charge and ground your energy back into the body with a more meditative flow.

Each week is themed slightly differently. As you immerse yourself in each journey using music, words and intentions, it will help you break open and elevate your soul. Classes may also include play with somatic movement to express emotions from the inside out.

Breath Work is a truly transformative practice. You can work as slowly as you wish and will have full support from Pippa. 

Pippa Raine, a graduated of the Alchemy Of Breath and a Breath Work Facilitator

YH | Choose Your Class

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
It’s officially Summer and as we head towards the Solstice in just a few weeks, we have so much to look forward to.

We recently asked you to tell us your thoughts of the classes, studios and community in a survey. We were thrilled with the response and have been busy implementing changes you requested. 

We have added lots of new classes to the schedule, as well as new teachers for more variety. But what class is right for you? Take a look at our styles below and maybe treat yourself to a new class this week.

We also have a new Breath Work Class that will be on Sunday’s 4pm at Catford. Our breath is the key to our life and yet we are so disconnected from it. This class will look at the power of the breath and how it can transform your mood, release tension and change your life. 

If you are still craving some deep self care, we have two magical workshops coming up. We welcome back Kate to celebrate the Solstice with us and Cacao Master Carlos joins us for a beautiful Ceremony. 
 
WHICH CLASS IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Yoga has evolved so much over time, with new classes and styles to help suit everyone. There is not one yoga. There is just your yoga.
After pretty much a year of being away from the studio and many changes in life and routine, it may be time to try a new style of Yoga, or Pilates, or a sound workshop. Our practice should change to meet our needs and we need to listen to our bodies and act accordingly. 
Sometimes we need to shift energy and other times we need to hold it. Sometimes we need precision and other times we need to flow freely. 
Follow our guide below and find the right class for you.

Dynamic 

When our mind and body is in flow, our life is in flow. Dynamic classes move through postures creating prana (life force). Prana flows through the body releasing stagnate energy and held emotions.

Try one of your Dynamic Classes
Mandala                        Vinyasa
Elemental Flow              

Strong Flow

Yoga is for the mind and body. We need to be strong in both. Our Strong Flow classes include Ashtanga which uses and series of postures in breath lead movement. Our Power classes focused on strengthening core and allowing the mind to unwind. Our Hot Yoga classes allow for a deeper opening in the body. Rocket is a fun and energising class to leave you feeling stronger, lighter and more flexible.

Mid Flow

Our Mid Flow classes offer connection. Slower paced so there is more time to move with the breath and take your practice deeper. Our Pilates classes offer stability in the body which brings balance and grace. 

Other Mid Flow classes to try are:
Akhanda, Forrest & Yang to Yin

Slow Flow

Life can be so fast we sometimes need to take action to slow it down. Joining a Slow Flow class maybe your one opportunity a week to stop. Our Mindful Flow class weaves beautiful poetry with peaceful postures. Flow to Meditation allows you to open up while being securely held. Our Hatha classes bring the balance we all crave. 
 

Restorative

We all need more rest, more sleep, more nurture. Our Restorative classes offer you a chance to switch off. Let your nervous system sing with one of these classes:
Yin + Restore 
Nidra
Alchemy Bowls
Qigong 
Breath Work 

Head to our time table to book a class now!

We also have a great back to studio offer below.
TIMETABLE & BOOKINGS
NEW CLASS | BREATH WORK

Join Pippa Raine Sunday afternoons at Catford 4PM
for a beautiful and healing Breath Work Class.

Each week you’ll be guided on an inner journey, as we use the conscious connected breath (through the mouth.)

It’s a circular breath to dive into your bodily sensations and the spiritual realms, connecting to intuition and authentic presence.

The initial part of the journey, I’ll guide you to charge your breath gently, to shift any emotions/energy stuck in the system and as you release any holding you’ll feel a deeper sense of bliss.
The latter part, we will integrate anything that showed up on the charge, and then ground your energy back into the body with more of a meditative flow.
Each week is themed slightly different, and as you immerse yourself in each journey the music, words and intentions, will touch, break open and elevate your soul.
Be ready to dive as deep as you want to, you’re always in the driving seat, and I’ll be with you to facilitate and support.
We will start with a short meditation to get in-touch with your felt sense, and to connect to your inner world.
Also we will play with somatic movement/dance to express emotions from the inside out. You’ll feel lighter, brighter and re-born.

Everything in creation has a frequency. Each thought and feeling, every part of our bodies, every atom reaching out to the furthest galaxies and when these vibrations are in harmony we can experience peace and natural transcendence.

YH | Hello June! What’s Happening?

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Our doors are open, the nature is in full bloom and the sun is out. Could we ask for anything more?

We hope you are slowly settling back into your new (yet again!) routine and finding all you need to feel balanced and grounded. We are so happy to see students back and feeling your energy and movement in one room together. This is what yoga is about, community, togetherness, ability to raise each other up, sharing the space and energy.

As always apart from the regular schedule we have put together some beautiful events to celebrate the power of getting together as community. With two amazing Cacao Ceremonies coming up, we thought in would be a good time to look a little deeper into this powerful plant. 
TIMETABLE & BOOKINGS
Cacao literally translates to ‘Food of the Gods’ . For centuries Cacao has been seen as sacred and used in ceremonies. Used as a potent tool for inner growth and inner connection, encouraging self exploration and self discovery.

The most important active ingredient of Cacao is Theobromine. It acts specially on the cardiovascular system by raising the heart rate and dilating our capillaries and so increasing the blood flow. It literally opens the blood vessels in the body allowing more blood flow through the heart.

It’s also the biggest vegetal source of magnesium and contains large amounts of iron and other nutrients like polyphenols. It also helps create serotonin which giving a sense of wellbeing and joy in a natural and safe way. In Cacao Ceremonies, we use this sense to provide an introspective and meditative state that allows us to bring our physical energy into the emotional level.

Raw Cacao is the Earth’s natural medicine that allows us to connect to something personally within ourselves, it allow us to transform in numerous ways with our self discovery. It’s a powerful and potent medicine that can assist the ‘inner work’ and creative guidance we all need to stay balanced.

This ancient & powerful plant helps us to navigate our path back to our true essence.
We have two different workshops coming up where you can experience Cacao.*

*if you have any medical conditions please check first if this is suitable for you.

SUMMER CAKE RECIPE
This is a super easy and super nice summer cake filled with fruit of your choice! Give it a try. 
(recipe from make life easier blog)

What you will need:
cake tin  – ideally square 20″
3 eggs
200g flour 
150g icing sugar
120ml oil (olive oil or sunflower oil)
1 tub of small natural yogurt
1 white chocolate bar (100g)
around 500g of apricots or other fruit you might want to use (could also be a mix 🙂 – cherries, rhubarb etc.)
zest of one lemon (use unwaxed lemons)
1 tea spoon of baking powder 
1 teaspoon of natural vanilla essence 

How to make it: Wash the apricots (other fruit) cut them into halves, and dispose of the stones. Whisk the eggs with icing sugar until light and airy. Add a tablespoon of oil into a small pot and melt white chocolate on low heat – keep on low heat for only few seconds, then place the pan aside – the warmth will melt the chocolate without burning it. Add yoghurt, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and the remaining oil to eggs and sugar, and mix thoroughly. Slowly pour sifted flour with baking powder.  Add melted chocolate. After combining all ingredients, turn the oven to 180ºC. Line the baking tray with baking paper.
Now cover the bottom of the baking tray with fruit (keeping some space between them), pour the cake mix over them and add the rest of fruit on top (* handy tip – place the apricots inside up, otherwise the juice will travel down during baking and may make the cake soggy).
Bake for approx. 40-45 minutes (until it is slightly curdled). Sprinkle it with icing sugar before serving.

Yoga House | Looking after your Mental Health

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Continuing on from last week’s Mental Health Awareness Week, today our teacher Sasha is sharing valuable tools to help look after yourself, and those around us.

This Saturday Sasha will be guiding a beautiful workshop at our Catford Studio. Joined by Gong Master Martina Saorin, they will take you through a host of calming & tranquil practices to leave you feeling restored and rested.

What is Mental Health and what can we do to help others and ourselves….

We all have mental health and just like our physical health it needs looking after.  One in four of us will experience a mental health issue in any given year.  The economic cost of mental ill health is estimated at £74 to £99 billion a year and the human cost is incalculable. 

There are different ways of defining the term mental health some definitions emphasise positive psychological well-being, whereas others see it as the absence of mental health issues or mental illness. 

The World Health Organisation defines health as: “health is a state of complete physical mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Health is a resource for everyday life, not the object of living. It is a positive concept emphasising social and personal resources as well as physical capabilities. 
Mental health is: “emotional and spiritual resilience which allows us to enjoy life and survive pain, disappointment and sadness. It is a positive sense of well-being and an underlying belief in our own worth and others dignity and worth.”  Health education authority, 1997
 
Stress is a big influencer to our mental health as well as our frame of reference or filter of reality.  This could be physical stress such as late nights, lack of routine..  Environmental stress – poor housing, unemployment, social isolation.  Emotional stress – relationship problems, conflict in cultural values + beliefs, peer pressure.   Other factors that influence stress levels include genetics, our adaptability to changing circumstance and ability to process thought.  There are six strands that may also have an effect on our mental health: age, gender, disability, race and ethnicity, religion or belief and sexuality.

There are many forms of mental ill health ranging from depression to anxiety, substance misuse, self-harm, eating disorders, personality disorders and psychosis.  To support someone we think may be suffering from mental ill health we should approach them and assess and assist them, by asking open questions. We should try to listen and communicate non-judgmentally. Give support and information, encourage the person to get appropriate professional help. 

Ways that we could support our own mental health include looking at what are stresses are and our ability to cope with them and assess what are helpful coping strategies are, as well as perhaps our unhelpful coping strategies.  This is referred to as the stress container. 

A strategy to developing good mental health, could be to include a happiness hour in our day every-day. Doing something that makes us feel good, is fun, boosts our mood and encourages mindfulness.  Some key lifestyle choices which people can make to improve or maintain their mental health. 
These are known as the five ways to well-being:
  1. Connect with the people around you.
  2. Be active go for a walk or run, step outside, cycle, play a game, garden, dance  – exercising makes you feel good. 
  3. Take notice be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment.
  4. Keep learning: try something new. Rediscovered an old interest, sign up for that course, fix a bike, learn to play an instrument or how to cook your favourite food, set a challenge you will enjoy achieving. Learning new things will make you more confident as well as being fun. 
  5. Give: do something nice for a friend or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out as well as in, your happiness is linked to the wider community – it can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.

Opening to Joy | Creating Calm & Tranquil Heart | Sound Bath with Sasha & Martina

Yoga House will be donating all revenue from all classes next week (starting this Sunday 02nd May 5pm class) to this cause so it would be amazing if you could get on your mat and show your support. We have a link below for donations also where we are also raising £1000 for charities in India.
