ASANA SERIES | SURYA YANTRASANA
Over the next few weeks our teachers will be sharing their favourite poses, benefits & tips with you. Today Aina tells us about Surya Yantrasana – Sundial Pose. 

My favourite pose is Sundial pose/seated compass pose or Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana in Sanskrit. I love it not only because it is a hip opener, but it is a great lead in for some fun arm balances like elephant trunk/ Eka Hasta Bhujangasana and Astavakrasana/ figure of 8. Sundial pose is also a good prep for the arm balance Bhujapidasana.

A good warm up for sundial pose is a seated hamstring strech ie Krounchasana/ heron pose. 
Get your hip slowly ready by cradling the leg in your elbow like rocking a baby.
Slowly move into the sundial pose by carefully bag packing your leg over the same shoulder whilst holding the foot with opposite hand.
Extend the leg within your range and look under elbow.

GETTING INTO THE POSE

  1. Start seated in a cross-legged position. Place the sole of your right foot on the floor, leaving your left foot where it is, and hug your right knee into your chest.
  2. Lengthen your right arm along the inside of your right knee and grab hold of the outside of your right foot. With your left hand behind you for support, lean back as you lift your right foot off the floor until the sole of your foot is facing the front of the room, shinbone parallel to the floor.

  3. Holding onto the outside of the right foot with your right hand, flex your foot as you pull the right foot and knee straight back alongside the outer right ribs.

  4. Flex your left foot as well, and firm your left inner thigh down to lengthen up through the spine. Then raise your left arm up and across your chest, reaching over the top of your right foot to grab the outer edge of that foot with your left hand.

  5. With the left hand holding the right foot, release the right hand down to the floor beside your right hip with your right arm inside and under your right leg.

  6. Leaning onto your left hip, pull your right knee further back with your left hand and swing the leg higher up and over your right shoulder (as though you were throwing a purse over your shoulder).

  7. Pause and take a deeper inhale. With your left hand griping your outer right foot lean more into your right hand now, and begin to straighten your right leg, pushing your right foot into your left hand, on the exhale.

  8. As you begin to straighten your right leg, simultaneously pull back with your left hand, bringing the left arm behind your head, and turn your chest, belly and gaze to the left, looking up under your left armpit.

To release re-bend the extended top knee, remove your right arm out from underneath your right leg and release the foot to the floor.

BENEFITS

• Opens the hips, groins and shoulders.

• Lengthens the side bodies, spine and hamstrings.

• Stimulates abdominal and reproductive organs.

MODIFICATIONS

• Use a strap around the top foot.

Aina will be working on this pose in her Summer Workshop. Details Below – You can also find her on Mondays teaching 7am online sunrise yoga, Tue 7.15pm Power in Catford, Wed 10am Vinyasa in Lee and Sat 8.15am Power in Lee

YH Special – This Weekend | Sound Workshops

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Sound Healing is so effective because it influences our emotional bodies as well as our physical bodies. Emotional imbalances often effect our physical bodies and when we heal our emotional bodies, the physical symptoms can improve. Sound and emotions are deeply connected. Human emotions have their immediate expression through sound, and it is often the repression of the sound of the emotions that creates emotional blockages. Conversely, sound can be used to unlock the blocked emotions and release them with ease and grace.  This weekend we have two beautiful Sound Workshops for you. 
SOUND WORKSHOPS THIS WEEKEND

CBD Sound Journey with Urmi Sound

We are so pleased to welcome Urmi Sound to YH for a CBD Sound Journey this Sunday.
Are you intrigued? Read on to find out more about this magical afternoon. 
What is CBD
CBD is a derivative of the hemp plant. As this does not contain THC (the psychoactive component of the cannabis plane that induces high states) CBD oil facilitates access to the therapeutic capabilities of Cannabis in an intentional and gentle way.
Working with CBD plant oil can encourage a return to homeostasis in the body and amplifies the restorative process of the sound journey.
 
The Tea Ceremony
The workshop will open with a tea ceremony that pairs CBD oil with nourishing herbs and restorative botanicals to deepen into the soundscape.
The blend has been created by Zen Maitri which is a delicious fusion of Tulsi Rose, Lemon Balm, Chamomile and Vervain.
 
The Sound Journey
We will be guiding you through a textured soundscape that journeys through the soothing frequencies of the crystal bowls to the powerful tones of the gongs.
Our Sound practice is a unique and intuitive processes that hold space for a range of experiences depending on what your body takes from the ceremony. 
Sunday 25 July | 4.30-6pm | £30 | Yoga House Catford

YH Weekly | Love Summer at Yoga House

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Positivity is all around. The Sun is out (or trying to be) and as we return to the people, activities and lives we love, our hearts fill with the joy of a new day and all that summer has to bring. 

Summer is the Ayurvedic Season of Pitta. Today we look at being able to balance this fiery energy so we don’t burn out. Our botanical expert Fawz gives us an update on what we can find in nature to calm and connect us to this season.  

There is also lots happening at the Studios. We have five amazing workshops to offer you (with more to come!). A new Beginner’s Course in Catford with Minica. This might be just what you need to help you back to your mat after a break from practice. 
It is also nearly time to wish Lydia well as she heads off on Maternity for a few months.
We have lined up some amazing teachers to step into her classes. 

Finally, our annual membership offer also ends on Sunday with only a few left so it’s your last chance to sign up for the cheaper price of £702. See below for info.
INSPIRATION FOR SUMMER

AYURVEDA 
PITTA SUMMER WELLBEING GUIDE 

The winds of change are regularly upon us, the seasons consistently roll from one into another.

Ayurvedic medicine recognises that this has a profound effect on our health and recommends many helpful suggestions for how we can adapt our lifestyle to stay balanced in each season. Each individual is unique with an equally unique dosha balance, so remember to read the other doshas and see which resonate.

The pitta dosha embodies the principles of passion and metabolism and is brimming with vitality. It handles all potential energy within the body, controlling digestion, metabolism and the overall production of cellular energy. The pitta dosha is made up of fire and water elements, a bit like a raging volcano. Its primary activity within the body and mind is that of transformation, the force for all metabolic activity.

What are the signs of an increase in pitta?

Pitta is the dosha most affected by the Summer season because this is the season with the highest levels of heat and therefore fire. It can be very easy for pitta to run out of control on a hot sunny day.

When a pitta becomes out of balance they suffer from characteristically ‘hot’ conditions such as heartburn, high blood pressure, fevers and skin rashes. You may also notice a change in their temperament, becoming more irritated, angry and frustrated in the ‘heat of the moment’. The key is to keep them cool and calm.

How can you help balance pitta in Summer?

Balancing pitta is all about keeping cool, calm and collected. It’s important to help the body clear excess levels of heat through efficient detoxification practices. Keeping a strong pitta cool in the summer can be a challenge, so it’s equally important to introduce calming and balancing practices such as mindfulness or yoga to stop the flames spreading out of control.

Diet for pitta in Summer

Foods with a sweet, bitter and drying taste are generally considered to be more cooling in their nature. Pitta constitutions are also the only dosha that can efficiently digest raw or cold foods, so foodstuffs such as salad are perfect for the fiery pitta during the warm summer months.

Avoid foods that generate heat such as spicy, salty and sour foods. Keeping yourself topped up with cooling liquids such as aloe vera juice, rose waters and cool herbal teas including herbs such as peppermint are perfect.

Daily Summer rituals for pitta

  • Begin and end the day with a cooling massage of the feet with an oil such as sesame or virgin coconut oil. This will help draw the heat down and out of the body.

  • Why not try making a herbal tea and then allowing it to cool and drinking it as a long, cooling and refreshing drink during the day.

  • Keep your food cool, light and fresh and try to stay spice free.

Summer herbal heroes for pitta

Perfect pitta herbs are those that are typically cool in nature and also help to detoxify the liver. Many of the natural algae’s and grasses such as chlorella, spirulina and wheatgrass are excellent detoxifiers that will help cleanse the body of excess heat.

SUMMER FORAGING 

We’re officially in summer but the weather has been so changeable that you may have noticed the plant life around you has gone a bit jungle. Gardens, parks and country paths and hedgerows have exploded with foliage and flowers thanks to the heavy rains alternating with sun drenched days. But the good news is there is more to pick from your garden or forage outdoors.

So here’s some inspiration to help you connect with nature and the season:

Lime blossom – honey scented flowers that you can use for a calming tea or add to a bath. In many European it’s a traditional bedtime drink for children. 

Elderflowers – there are still some elderflowers to be had and made into cordial, fritters or even cakes. The best taste of summer. 

Honeysuckle – this is trailing wild at the moment and the scent as you walk past is heavenly. Pick the flower and suck on the sweet nectar or turn into a cordial. Or make flower water face toner.

Nettles and plantains – both are good for allergies and you can make them into balms for skin rash or insect bites. As a tea combined with elderflowers, it’s great if you get hayfever.

Lavender – more of a homegrown forage, my lavender path is bursting with flowers and buzzing with bees. Another one to calm and relax – as tea or a bath. I also make biscuits and lavender infused sugar. 

Happy foraging!  Fawz xx

Disclaimer: always use a guidebook to identify plants correctly, follow foraging etiquette & if you have medical conditions or are pregnant or breastfeeding check with your doctor first.

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.

SUMMER SOLSTICE SOUND BATH

Join us for this special Solstice Alchemic Sound Healing on this most powerful day of the year. The healing is hosted by the beautiful Kate Fleur.

The power of sound healing is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational frequencies to enable us to drop into a meditative state and allow the possibility of clearing, cleansing and balancing on a deep cellular level. 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.
