Yoga House – studio offers and xmas gifts

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
It’s starting to feel a lot like…

Even if you haven’t got your tree up yet, the Christmas Season is on it’s way and we have you covered. 
It’s a magical time but it can also be very stressful. All the shopping, get togethers, families and pine needle hoovering can get too much. It may feel easier to give up on your self care but this won’t lead to a merry Christmas.

Prioritising YOU is the best gift you can give yourself and those around you. 

To help you with this, we have some great offers to tell you about. Including packages, intro offers, memberships and members can bring a friend for free! More details below. 

We also have some amazing workshops leading us to the end of the year. There is a strength focused workshop, Rocket Fundamentals, with Jamie and a pure relaxation workshop with Alice’s Winter Bliss – Yin, Nidra, Sound & Chocolate. We also invite you welcome the light back to the world by joining us for a special Sound Bath over the Winter Solstice with Lizzy. 

We have your Christmas shopping covered 🌲 
How better to treat a friend but with one of our 2022 Workshops! Gift cards and our studio shops are full of great gifts such as incense and candles. Our Therapy Room is also now open and who doesn’t like a treatment? Check out more below.

Join YH & Kate Fleur for this Astrological Event…

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
This weekend we welcome the Full Moon in Taurus accompanied by a lunar eclipse which happens when the earth sits between the sun and the moon and casts a shadow over la luna . This combination will up the emotional ante of all of us. The energy of the moment is often extremely intense and possibly even overwhelming. 

We are blessed to have Kate Fleur join us on the evening of Saturday 20th November to help us harness this energy and use it to dismiss what no longer serves us and make the changes we have been craving.

With this month’s astrological event falling in down-to-earth, sensual, security-focused Taurus — ruled by the planet of love Venus — shake-ups are most likely to be tied to romantic relationships, money and self-worth.

Kate will begin the session with a cacao ceremony and will then use her crystal sound bowls and her beautiful voice to guide you into a deep place of calm. 

Hurry to book your spot for this magical evening!

CACAO
Cacao is used as a Shamanic medicine and through opening the heart, it enables us to hear our true self, dissolve any pent up negative energy, and help us align with who we truly are. Sharing cacao brings us into the same energetic frequency. This often results in deeper more intimate connection with ourselves and each other

Kate originally started her journey into deepening her relationship with herself and the worldby practising Yoga.

She is passionate about creating sacred spaces for people to shed their layers and come back to a place of inner guidance, truth, understanding, compassion and connection.

YH Weekly | Protecting Our Planet

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

WELCOME TO YOUR YH WEEKLY

With all of the World’s leaders and greats gathered in Glasgow for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) we thought we’d take a look at what our community can do to help the planet. 

We have stories and tips from teachers and the team on the small changes they have made that have had a positive impact. It is interesting to see the changes we make to help the planet (for example, walking, cycling or taking public transport instead of driving to class) also help our own bodies too.

We also have SIX amazing workshops coming up, including a NEW Gong Bath with Junior next Friday and Full Moon Sound Bath with Kate on November 20th. And looking a head, we have Lizzy leading a magical South Bath for the Winter Solstice and Junior is back to Gong in the New Year.
These are always really popular so book NOW!
 

Our teachers and team have come together to share small changes they have made that have helped the planet. We hope they offer some inspiration to you. We’d also love to hear your planet friendly tips and habits. 


Yoga House Founder Kasia shares what processes, policies and products she has in place to keep the studios as environmentally conscious as possible. 
I created Yoga House as a space for people to come together and practice Yoga. It’s a community foremost and why I love seeing people having a cup of tea and sharing stories after practice. I am always trying to reduce our carbon footprint and protect this beautiful planet that gives us so much. 
I am vintage obsessed and much of the furniture and decoration of both studios has been sourced second hand. I am always in the local charity shops nearby or at vintage fairs. Where possible we refill and recharge on cleaning products, soaps and batteries. I try to limit the amount of toxins coming into the studios with eco friendly products. 
We only stock high quality brands, like Skimmed Milk who’s leggings are made out of plastic bottles!  
One of the projects we have contributed towards involved planting trees, but there is so much more we can all do together. It’s the smallest changes that can make a big impact.
I am always keen to learn and improve, so if you have any ideas or tips, please share them with me on email – support@yogahouselondon.co.uk 

Nutritionist Zannie shares her knowledge on plastic water bottles and how they damage the environment and our bodies. 
There are many reasons why we should avoid buying plastic bottled water. The UK uses 13 billion plastic bottles every year and only 7.5 billion are recycled. The remaining 5.5 billion are landfilled, littered or incinerated. These are the sad statistics from a government rapport from 2019. 
For a long time bottled-water companies have tried to convince us that expensive bottled mineral water is better for us with devastating environmental costs and no proven health benefits. 
Most bottled water also comes in soft flexible plastic that contains phthalates, known endocrine disruptors that interfere with the way the body’s hormones work. Furthermore, micro plastics are also found in most of the plastic water bottle brands.
Best solution: buy a good quality water filter and a reusable water bottle ideally of steel or glass and if you buy bottled water ideally in a glass bottle. 

Lorna from YH Operations shares her experience of moving and decorating during covid and how it lead to a thrifty dream.
Lockdown hit when I was jobless and homeless. I had a nightmare finding a place to live and when I did months later, I had to find some furniture. Most stores where giving delivery dates of 4-6 months due to Covid, Brexit or the Suez Canal – but my main issue was that I seriously short on funds. 
I was recommended Facebook Market Place and the interior designer exploded out of me. I could not believe what was on there! I got the perfect corner sofa, matching wardrobes, chest of draws and bedside tables, plants, rugs, dining table, pictures, curtains – you name it – I got it. It was amazing. In additional to only paying about a 10th of the cost, I could collect the next day and there was no packaging to depose of afterwards.  
Growing up, my family would keep a sofa until the arms were falling off. Nowadays people change their furniture if it’s out of style or doesn’t go with the wall paper. There is so many great bargains to be had. You can bring a little joy to your home and help the planet.  

Our lovely teacher Louise shares her love of two wheels and all the benefits she gets from them. 
I was very lucky to have basically grown up on two wheels, my mum being a keen cyclist (she still goes on 20 mile cycles around Suffolk every week!). However it wasn’t until I met my partner 10 years ago, another keen cyclist, that I got my first London bike. It was a beautiful, but not very functional vintage bike. I remember being completely terrified of the London roads, picking it up in Clapham and suddenly sharing the road with buses, taxis, cars, scooters and everything in-between! Soon learning to navigate the roads however, this overwhelming sense of freedom, of joy, of independence, came into cycling for me. It wasn’t long until I upgraded my beautiful vintage bike for another second hand bike, this time a single speed road bike. With the ability to now whizz around a lot faster, and with my confidence growing, I learnt so much about this city. The streets, the hum of pedestrians, the cycle paths through parks, watching the world go by at my own pace, total bliss! Dare I even say it, fresh air, or what we can call fresh air in London. Instead of feeling tired by my commute, I was starting to feel energised. Plus, there’s no tube delays or train cancellations, if you’re running late, it’s up to you to cycle a little faster, you’re in control. 
However, there was still one thing holding me back, London weather! I was always a fair weather cyclist, enjoying all the dry, warmer months, and heading back to the buses and trains come winter. In 2020 though, when our whole world changed, so did I. I discovered a sense of resilience, cultivated through cold water swimming, in the rain, in the cold, all year round. Ice baths when the pools were closed, cups of tea after with friends when they were open. One of my students shared this phrase with me “We’re not made of sugar” and I remind myself of that when it’s pouring with rain, my shoes are full of water, and I’m whizzing off to teach another class. I haven’t been back on a tube since March 2020 and now cycle around 100km a week!
I love knowing that my commute is not just beneficial to the world around me, but also allows me a chance to connect to it all – the sunrises and sunsets, the crisp autumn air and the warm summer evenings, the moonlight and the sunshine. It allows me moments in my day to take it all in, soak it up, and give thanks for this wonderful world.
I feel very lucky to be a part of it, and commit to doing everything I can to protect and sustain it. 

Reception team member and acupuncture student Saskia, has found an online cave of Information.
Until the end of COP (November 12th) you can access a virtual bookcase with 140 books on climate change and sustainability for free:
https://blog.exacteditions.com/cop26-virtual-book-showcase-for-climate-change/
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
We are all responsible to help protect the planet, but where to start?
Here are 5 simple things you can do that can have a big impact. 
Eat Less Meat & Dairy 
Avoiding meat and dairy products is one of the biggest ways to reduce your environmental impact on the planet. 
Try to choose fresh, seasonal produce that is grown locally to help reduce the carbon emissions from transportation, preservation and prolonged refrigeration.
 
Drive Less
Instead of getting in the car, walk or cycle – and enjoy the physical and mental health benefits, and the money saved. For longer journeys, use public transport, or try car sharing schemes. Not only do cars contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, but air pollution caused by exhaust fumes from traffic poses a serious threat to public health. 
Cut Consumption & Waste
Avoid single-use items and fast fashion, and try not to buy more than you need. Shop around for second-hand or quality items that last a long time. Put your purchasing power to good use by choosing brands that align with your new green aspirations. YH has a regular vintage rail from Independent Stylist (pictured).
Fly Less
If you need to fly for work, consider using video conferencing instead. For trips in the same country or continent, take the train or explore options using an electric car. When flying is unavoidable, pay a little extra for carbon offsetting. Transport has become the largest emitting sector of the UK economy, accounting for 28% of UK greenhouse gas emissions in 2017. 
Talk
As you make these positive changes to reduce your environmental impact, share your experience with your family, friends, customers and clients. Talk positively, and be honest about the ups and downs and share ideas and tips such as great secondhand shops or vintage fairs.

YH Weekly | The Rocket Man & Studio Update

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

WELCOME TO YOUR YH WEEKLY

This week we welcome the Full Moon in Aries and say a thankful goodbye to Mercury Retrograde that has now ended. Aries rules the ‘Self’ so this is the perfect time to lean into your needs and desires and celebrate the Self! What have you accomplished recently? What are you proud of? It’s also a time to look at your boundaries. What are you letting creep in and what is stopping you from being true to yourself? 

At Yoga House we are filling our timetable up with new and different classes and great workshops to help you find the space to care and cultivate yourSELF. 

Continuing the space theme, this week are taking a look at Rocket Yoga and the man that founded it Larry Schultz. He went from an insurance man to changing the Ashtanga Series and a teacher to a Rock Band. We have an amazing Rocket Workshop in December being taught by one of Larry’s students Jamie Blowers. More Info below. 

Halloween is nearing and there are only a few spots left on Kate’s special Sound Healing Session on October 30th. Come and be spellbound by her beautiful bowls and spine tingling vocals. 

Last 10 days of our intro offer – Our back to routine offer is ending soon, you can get 2 classes for £18 here. You can use the classes over both studios for all timetable bookings including yoga, pilates and hot yoga, pregnancy and baby yoga. Terms apply (both classes to be taken up to one month after purchase).

Meet the Father Of Rocket Yoga

Larry Schultz was named ‘The Bad Boy of Ashtanga Yoga” by Pattabhi Jois. This was after Larry had studied under Pattabhi for 7 years and created Rocket Yoga. Rocket Yoga allows students to alter and modify poses in the Ashtanga Primary Series that they may be stuck on. Larry’s created Rocket sequence to make it more accessible to all students.
 
Larry was incredibly popular in California and opened the third yoga in San Francisco in 1989. He was the on-tour Yoga Teacher for the band The Grateful Dead and band member Bob Weir came up with the name Rocket Yoga because it apparently “takes you there faster”.
Larry with Pattabhi Jois
Yogi Band: Grateful Dead
At Yoga House, we have many passionate teachers who have studied Rocket Yoga – Lydia, Giovina, Junior, Louise, Charles and Kasia. We are thrilled to welcome Jamie Blowers to Catford on December 12th for a Rocket Fundamental Workshop. Jamie was blessed to have studied under Larry and kindly shares his love of Rocket Yoga and what it means to him below.

Introducing Jamie Blowers

My Rocket practice challenges and rewards my body in equal measure. Its like a good conversation with an interesting friend fuelled by caffeine  – full of challenges, epiphanies, growth and excitement.

My body and mind feel changed, strong and vitally stimulated with Rocket. In fact after Rocket practice I feel like I can take on the world! Rocket practice lifts us up literally and figuratively! 
The more gymnastic style transitions and moves rely on balance and strength more than the  extreme flexibility of the traditional Ashtanga system. This is why more diverse bodies respond to the Rocket and are reeling all the benefits. Rocket practice is playful and creative, vigorous and up lifting full of handstands opportunities and arm balances. We work on the back muscles too which is an over looked feature in many dynamic practices. 
In Larry’s words it shows you that you are stronger than you think you are. 

When I first started to practice Ashtanga there was a lot of hierarchy in the practice from the way teachers were trained down to the way the practitioner practiced. For me this was not a huge issue but not so enticing as creativity.
I come from a professional dance training back ground were I trained in both Ballet Technique and Contemporary Dance technique. For me the Ashtanga was very similar to how one trained in Ballet technique. But my passion was for the innovations and creativity of Contemporary dance, so, when I discovered Rocket yoga in San Francisco back in 2007 I could see this was were my heart was going to be be in Yoga. Unlike Ashtanga the Rocket was designed to dissolve the hierarchy of poses and simultaneously modify the poses. These two innovations then facilitated a diverse access to the benefits and joys of Ashtanga style practice and poses.
Balance and strength are more practically developed then extreme flexibility which often relies ultimately on the proportion of your bones as they articulate in their joints. Many practitioners that are not so flexible really respond to Rocket for this reason. That is not to say that Rocket practice does not develop greatly flexibility just that the practice ultimately does not point to that as its central feature.

Rocket was created by Larry Shultz, in the early 90’s it started to gain a following which has continued to grow internationally. Larry Shultz sadly passed away in 2011, Larry was my yoga teacher and nurtured my confidence to become a teacher trainer in the Rocket. We miss him but I am happy to be perpetuating his legacy through sharing the love of Rocket Practice! 

In three words This practice is fun, fast and fascinating!  The movement velocity is increased to create a cardio effect, we keep the energy high with regular handstands and the variations that lead beginners on that journey. We always bring the Rocket to land smoothly with Savasana and contemplation.

SQUASH & BUTTERBEAN STEW

Ingredients

  • vegetable oil 2 tbsp
  • onion 1 large, diced
  • butternut squash 500g, peeled and diced
  • garlic 4 large cloves, thinly sliced
  • ground cinnamon 1 tsp
  • ground turmeric 1 tsp

Method

STEP 1
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large lidded pan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 10 minutes until soft, without browning, then add the diced squash and garlic. Cook for 8-10 minutes until softening at the edges. Add the spices, coat everything well, stirring for a minute or so. Season generously, then add in the passata, sugar and 250ml of water. Stir, cover with a lid, reduce the heat and cook gently for 20-25 minutes (stirring occasionally and adding a splash of water if it begins to look a little dry) or until the squash has cooked through.

STEP 2
Remove the lid, stir well and add the beans, and most of the parsley.
 

STEP3
In a separate small pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil and the dried mint over a medium heat for a few minutes, ensuring it doesn’t burn, then remove from the heat and set aside.

Continuing our Teacher Asana series, Annie shares her love of Reclined Supta Baddha Konasana (with props!) 

Blocks, bolster, eye pillow, blankets

Reclined Supta Baddha Konasana with blocks and a bolster is the dreamiest pose ever. When I need extra self love (this seems like every day lately) I spend at least 20 minutes here covered in eye pillows and blankets breathing into anahata – the heart chakra. It is actually Heaven on Earth! This pose encourages being in a shape with heightened awareness and cultivates inner listening. A restorative posture such as this one brings us closer to our affirmations and our stillness. In this posture you will get grounded, sloth off any stagnant energy around your heart, come back to you, and give yourself the fuel you need.


Nina Simone once sang, “You’ve got to learn to leave the table when love is no longer being served.” If you are depriving yourself of love, leave behind your busy life for a moment, get down on your mat and find this reclined bound ankle pose.

Light a candle, make a sup of herbal tea, fold a cozy blanket under the tailbone and place a bolster propped up on two foam blocks. Lay your spine slowly and gently on the bolster. Make any adjustments with your skull bones – higher or lower. Whatever feels good. You might like an extra blanket or scarf under the brain stem. The softness this creates in my neck and the tip of my spine is like butter. My scalp, skin, tendons, blood, hair, bones, saliva, blood all slow down. I can feel a magnetic sensation in the body like my cells bouncing off each other. Give your body a little massage – rig cage, back of neck, hips, thighs, heart and then settle the hands on the mat. 
Allow shoulder blades to drip off the bolster and yield to the ground. Relax your neck on the bolster and tongue, jaw and teeth release. There is no clenching here. The body is truly able to feel the breath and the rhythm of life. The prana flows in and out like velvet and we start to find the place of stillness that we so long for. 
As you lie on your props, simply lengthen the exhale without force, just by invitation. Notice the ebb, flow, rhythm, and texture of your breath. Continue to allow the prana to flow through your spine. Feel the dance of your breath from your scalp to your tailbone. The dance of breath continuing. The prana ever alive. Simply let go of whatever thoughts come in and no longer serve. The mind is hard to control, but use the breath and ancestral advice and you’ll get there. We are reminded of the ancient verse in the Bhagavad Gita:

Chapter 6, Verse 34 “Oh Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, strong and unyielding as difficult to subdue as the wind.”

Allow the soles of your feet to touch and the outer edges of your feet to rest on the mat. The thighs rotate out, but be generous with blocks, bolsters and blankets under the thighs so you are literally propped up and not hyper extending in the hips flexors. Make sure each support, whether a block or blanket, is the same height. Continue sinking the groins into the pelvis. In this asana, I love the release in the pelvis and the abductor muscles of the groin, but for me the real joy is in the letting go. You may want to assist the sinking action by laying a 5 pound sandbag across each inner groin, right where the thigh joins the pelvis (the bags will form a “V” with its apex at your pubis). But don’t use the bags unless your thighs are supported. 

As you exhale soften the elbows and melt the shoulders away from your ears. Breathe deliciously in this pose for 10 to 20 minutes or longer. 

Open all the doorways of the heart. Pull in brand new fresh affirmative energy directly into your heart. Whatever it is that our heart needs from us today. We know this practice – this yoga – opens us up –  listen – notice and transform. 

To exit the pose inhale and draw the knees toward the midline. Exhale and relax your knees to the mat. Lie on your side on the floor in fetal position enjoying the symphony of sensations in the body.

Stillness is a process, not an endpoint. In fact, the research of Dr. Ellen Langer suggests that it’s not those moments of stillness that bring us the benefits of mindfulness, but rather the process of continually coming back to where we are.

This pose can actually deepen our relationship with ourselves and those around us. My favourite part is definitely how being present with myself and cultivating relaxation in my body can make me more present for others, more attuned to their needs, and aware of how I choose to communicate. 

Notice all the magical synchronicities on your journey and remember you’re always supported.

Awake, my dear.

Be kind to your sleeping heart.

Take it out into the vast fields of Light

And let it breathe.

Say,

“Love,

Give me back my wings,

Lift me,

Lift me nearer.” – Hafiz
