STUDIO UPDATE

MATS ARE NOW FREE FOR ALL!
We will no longer be charging for mats!
We do still encourage you to bring your mat along. Practice on your own mat is a really beautiful thing and allows a deeper connection to your own space. 
However, if you don’t want to take your mat to work with you before practice, there will be a mat waiting for you. 

THIS WEEKEND’S WORKSHOP | STRENGTH FOR YOGIS

With Alice Billerey 
Our wonderful Alice is back this weekend IN STUDIO with a fantastic workshop. 
Strength for Yogis is a workshop that invites you to explore how we can adapt and modify postures and shapes that already exist within yoga, in order to improve and increase our strength.
Who is this workshop for?
✨ Yogis who already practice passive stretching styles and wish to bring about more balance to their bodies
✨ Yogis who are interested in strength training but don’t know where to start / are intimidated by the gym
✨Yogis who wish to improve their mobility (strength & flexibility)
✨Yogis who might have a reoccurring ‘niggle’ or pain whilst practicing & wish to explore how strength training can help to build more physical resilience (and possibly reduce pain).
This workshop will be highly practical and explorative with some anatomical discussion. I hope that you’ll also take away a sense of empowerment and understanding that there is no 1 correct alignment for many of the yoga postures. Instead there are endless possibilities depending on what the intention is behind the pose.
Curious?! Come along!

BE A WARRIOR, NOT A WORRIER

Take a journey with us into yogic philosophy and learn why the Warrior Poses became a part of our practice
Warrior Poses – also known as the Vira poses or the Virabhadrasana series, were exercised to pay homage to the exploits of Vīrabhadra, a mythical warrior in Hindu texts.
The tale begins with the failure of priest Daksha to invite his daughter, Sati and her husband, Shiva (the ruler of the universe – and the first yogi) to a ceremonial sacrifice.
The Story of Virabhadra
Angered and saddened, Sati takes herself to the sacrifice nonetheless. Here she enters a row with her father and is left humiliated, leading her to throw herself onto the sacrificial fire and perish.
Devastated and angry, Shiva tore out some of his hair, where it fell to the ground. From this lock suddenly rose a fearful and dutiful warrior named Virabhadra.
Primed and ready to defend, Virabhadra is sent by Shiva to kill Daksha and his guests. Once Shiva arrives to see the revenge complete, he is filled with sorrow and regret. Shiva finds Daksha’s body and brings him back to life.
Later Shiva assimilates the dutiful warrior back into his own being once more, and begins to grieve in meditation. Finally, Sati is reborn and the two are in love once again.
While open to interpretation, this famous tale acts as a reminder that violence and revenge aren’t effective to reduce one’s suffering, which will only take on new forms like Shiva’s regret or sorrow.
So where do the poses come from?

Warrior I represents Virabhadra arriving at Daksha’s ceremony with a sword in each hand.

Warrior II represents Virabhadra focusing on his victim preparing to strike.

Warrior III represents Virabhadra throwing himself and his swords forward during as he kills Daksha.

WHY YOU SHOULD ADD PILATES TO YOUR SCHEDULE

Three Reasons from our wonderful teacher Esmae
1. Improved posture – “A man is as young as his spinal column” Joseph Pilates 
 The demands of everyday life – sitting at a desk for hours, looking at our phones, stressing about deadlines and work can take a considerable toll on our posture. Often bad posture can lead to back pain and imbalances in the body. By focusing on core strength, body alignment and opposing muscle balance, Pilates is proven to be one of the best ways to improve your posture. 
 
2. Injury Prevention – “Change happens through movement, and movement heals” Joseph Pilates  
Developing strength and balance of muscles in the body can help prevent injuries due to an increased level of support and stabilisation at our joints. When our core is strong, the frame of our body becomes more supported. 
 
3. Stress relief – “Everyone is the architect of their own happiness” Joseph Pilates 
 Breathing and concentration are two key principles of Pilates. By internally focusing and controlling our breath, the body and mind can find relaxation and balance, helping to reduce stress.  
“Doing pilates has changed me for the better and I feel so much healthier.”
– YH Student Jeff

FINDING MY WAY BACK TO PRACTICE 
BY ANNIE EDWARDS

Throughout your yoga journey, you may fall out of your yoga routine. I recently felt disconnected and Yoga House brought me back to my mat.  

One of my literary inspirations, Toni Morrison, once said, “All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.” 
This quote has been a beautiful mantra for me throughout the last few months. I took a hiatus (for no good reason) from my regular daily practice. As a teacher and longtime practitioner, I know that taking time off from yoga practice happens all the time. However, life felt fractured and my cherished patterns felt interrupted and yes, my relationship with yoga felt diminished.

How did I find my way back to the practice that had been my constant and brought me profound benefits for over twenty years?

My love of wellbeing and belief in rest and selfcare never wavered, but my motivation to be on my mat in studio was challenging to find. The “getting started” again is where I needed inspiration. I found myself in shock that I had wandered so far from my own practice. We all have distractions and commitments that keep us from rolling out our mats, but I felt a lack of inspiration deep in my bones. Rumi reminds us to jump in the water, but I simply could not get started.
“Love is the water of life, jump into this water.” – Rumi

Miraculously, Yoga House in Catford brought back the magic and literally called me home. I am so fortunate that I only have to saunter a few steps up the street through the Tescos car park and 100 yards over the bricks of Catford Mews to find my oasis of calm. When I walk through those doors I am greeted and everything melts away. Every special touch from the smiles at reception, to the warm twinkling lighting, to herbal tea in dainty tea cups to the aroma of incense magnificent plants and flowers. All of these elements soothe my soul instantly. 

Once through the threshold I find it easier to connect and center. The sacred space of YH gives me a sense of belonging and home. The studio seems to contain a magical essence. Kasia Blackwell has created this place for us and spreads her essence throughout us all. For that I am so grateful. Her inspiration and the magic of other teachers at YH continues to spread the message of yoga and inspires me every day. Through the support of this space, I realise that I always have time for yoga.

Yoga doesn’t take time, it gives time. Spend a few more moments with yourself learning about how your body likes to move and breathe. Our relationship with ourselves is one of the most intimate and rewarding relationships of our lives.

There have definitely been moments during the last three years where I have lost my passion for practice. Thanks to Yoga House and the wonderful yoga community I am reminded that this truly is our path. Like water coming back to the source, I have come back to the WHY of yoga. I do remember why I fell in love with this practice and these postures. It is the poetry of life. 

A few tips on how to come back? Start slowly. Restorative or Yin yoga is a bold and wonderful place to begin! Come as you are. Connect slowly with your body and your breath. Re-discover your yoga. Make a sign with a quote and put it on your mirror. BKS Iyengar once wrote: “Yoga is the golden key that unlocks the door to peace, tranquility and joy.” 

Remember that no human I know has ever said, “I really regret going to yoga today.”  Ever.

Join me at Yoga House, a safe place, a haven in a busy city, on Wednesdays for Restorative Yoga 7:45 pm. Come as you are. Come home!

PARIVRTTA ANJANEYASANA

Helen shares her love of high lunge twist

This is a lovely posture which stretches spine, hamstrings and hips and shoulders.  Once you have warmed up the hamstrings and spine with some half hanuman or forward bends and some supine or seated twists.

From downdog, right foot steps forwards between the hands and knee is directly positioned over the ankle, left fingers spread out and left hand connects with the earth under left shoulder, right leg is strong and straight with quadricep ‘hugging’ up into hamstring.

Inhale: extend from crown of head to back of left heel, lengthening spine

Exhale: hips drop, maintaining engagement of left leg and belly, front ribs and chest gently spiral towards inner right thigh. Neck is long, jaw relaxed. Right arm reaches straight up to the sky, or for more extension, right bicep draws over right ear, palm down, fingertips extend to the front of the room.

Modifications: for tighter hips, drop back knee to earth. For more ease in shoulders, bring right hand to waist as you spiral the chest open to sky.

KEEP THE WARMTH OF THE SUN IN YOUR HEART

These long hot Summer days are showing the power and beauty of the Sun. If the Sun of late has left you exhausted and flushed, we have the perfect workshop to help. 

Alice Rose is back with an Alchemic Sound Bath this Sunday. Her healing crystals bowls will sooth and calm you. And if your family are burnt out (or burning you out) bring them along to our Family Yoga session. It’s a great way to connect and play together. 

We now only have TWO of our Summer Membership Offers left (all details below) and we have a studio sale on our yoga wear. You can get 25% off our collections. 

And finally we share our experience of working with the wonderful Lewisham Hospital.

Alchemic Sound Bath with Alice Rose

SUNDAY 17 JULY | 6-7.15PM | £25* | CATFORD STUDIO

Sound is a powerful medicine

…that surrounds us constantly in our daily lives, whether be it a voice of your favourite musician, the sound of the birdsong at dawn or perhaps the laughter of a child, these frequencies are a powerful medicine that evoke sensation, inspire presence and facilitate healing.

Healing with sound, vibration & intention

Sound alchemy is the use of sound, frequency and resonance to help the mind and body rebalance itself through the Alchemy crystal singing bowls. Each bowl is forged and blended with an array of healing possibilities, from semi precious stones, metals and minerals. Due to their individual nature, they create a deeply transformative experience, alchemising their magic to whom may receive.

Alice’s crystalline bowls are infused with the healing properties of gold, platinum, salt, grandmother alchemy and rose quartz. Chosen to facilitate transformation, creative expression, connection to the divine feminine to promote inner healing and conscious relaxation on a deep cellular level.


Join Alice Rose this Sunday for this beautiulf & healing Alchemic South Bath.

Family Yoga with Mary Sheppard

SUNDAY 17 JULY | 1-2PM | £8 per YOGI | LEE STUDIO

Between the intensity of work, school, birthday parties, swimming lessons, hockey, ballet, music lessons and a myriad of other family events, what’s an activity your family can participate in together- one that everyone will benefit from?

That would be yoga, of course. A proven success among families, it’s the perfect way to get everyone together for some fun, memorable experiences. Practicing yoga as a family has been shown to reduce stress, reduce anxiety, and lead to healthier lives because of it.

Here are just a few more reasons you should book your family for some yoga fun:

1. Family Yoga strengthens the family bond. Spending time together and touching physically, as well as connecting emotionally, spiritually and mentally, is strengthening, and sets the stage for spending more quality family time throughout the rest of the week.

2. Family Yoga creates a sense of support within the family!  Literal support in poses for the whole family, and this easily translates to further physical and emotional support outside of class.

3. Family Yoga gives you something to all do together.  Doing yoga together is about as high as you can get on the parent/child interaction meter.  It levels the playing field, and each family member’s strengths begin to shine, with none being any greater or less than the others.

4. Family Yoga teaches parents how to play!  In a time where parents mostly feel like police men and woman, family yoga can take the tension out of a parent/child relationship and open the gates to fun and playfulness within and outside of class.

5. Family Yoga makes parents learners!  Children get to see their parents as learners, which sets a great example for them!  And parents get to see how their children learn and how they interact with other age groups, something we don’t often see in school/work life.


Join Mary this Sunday for a host of games, playing, exploring & so much more family fun!


It’s £8 per yogi and the fun starts at 1pm on Sunday 17 July at our Lee Studio

ALICE SHARES HER STORY

YOGA & ARTHRITIS
 I started practicing yoga in my local gym in 2011 after a friend suggested that it might be a good way of managing my back pain. I am so grateful for that friend and for her suggestion as she wasn’t wrong! 
 
I started experiencing pain in my lower back and pelvis in my early 20’s. I found out 12 years later that I have a form of arthritis that affects the spine called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS for short). It’s a form of arthritis that affects young adults. Unfortunately the average diagnosis time is 8.5 years so many people will live with symptoms for a long time without receiving help or treatment.
 
My experience of practicing yoga in my local gym soon led me to my local yoga studio. I went from practicing once a week to as many times as I could. I was hooked! I was also astounded because I was no longer in pain with my back! I was convinced that yoga had cured me of my back pain. This profound experience is what prompted me to study yoga and become a teacher. 
 
Of course there is no cure for arthritis. So whilst I am sure yoga played a huge role in managing my symptoms at that point in my life, the pain in my back did return. Arthritis tends to be cyclical. One can experience periods of remission (which can last for months and years) where the disease is fairly or completely inactive. Followed by periods of activity, often referred to as a flare. 
Living with a chronic health condition and persistent pain can be challenging and can have implications not only on one’s physical health but also mental. I am so grateful for the practice of yoga which has been instrumental in my healing journey and my management of arthritis. I feel extremely blessed that I am able to manage my arthritis largely through lifestyle choices which involve daily exercise, strength training, managing stress levels, nutrition and getting good quality rest. 
 
These are my favourite yoga practices and how they’ve helped me:
  • Asana – whether it’s yin or vinyasa I am always able to find something within the yoga repertoire that my body responds well to. Over the years I have learnt to adapt my practice and incorporate more strength work to support my joints.
  • Coherent breathing / Sama Vritti Pranayama – this breath practice involves breathing in for the same amount of time as you breathe out. I love its simplicity and its known benefits for balancing the nervous system, which can help to reduce pain and anxiety.
  • Yoga Nidra – I practice this form of meditation most often as it helps me to rest and restore and manage my stress levels.  
  • Mindfulness meditation – learning to sit with one’s self can be such a healing practice. I like to follow seated meditation with journaling, where I write about how I am feeling on that day and what might have come up for me during the meditation. 
If you’re concerned that you or anyone you know might be suffering from AS then here is a very helpful website with lots of resources: https://nass.co.uk/about-as/
 
You can practice with Alice online:
Mondays | Yin & Yoga Nidra | 8pm
Fridays | Sunrise Flow | 7am

ALICE IS BACK IN TOWN WITH A NEW SUMMER WORKSHOP
STRENGTH FOR YOGIS

In this two hour workshop Alice will share with you some ideas on how you can feel stronger and more capable in your asana practice by increasing your tolerance to load. You will explore how body weight exercises, such as those found in yoga, can be adapted in order to bias certain areas of the body. Through this exploration of classic yoga postures we will also debunk the idea that there is one perfect alignment for a pose.

SATURDAY 6 AUGUST | 2-4PM | £20 | LEE STUDIO

BOOK YOUR WORKSHOP
Alice is an accredited Yoga Therapist so if you have any health concerns please let Alice know as she can help guide and advise you.
