Stepping Into Strength; A Glutes Workshop

My last glute-focused workshop was so popular that I’ve decided to run another, very similar one at the lovely Yoga On The Lane this month. Taking place on Sunday 31st January from 3-5.30pm, Stepping Into Strength is a workshop that will teach you all you’ve ever wanted and needed to know about your ‘behind’.

glutes

It’s likely that you sit on your glutes every day but never give these stabiliser muscles a second thought, and yet they play such a hugely important role in our overall core strength. When they’re under utilised it means you are left to pick up the slack elsewhere and over time this will effect you in your daily life, leaving you with poor posture and performance both on and off the yoga mat.

This workshop is designed to teach you how to properly activate the glutes and re-pattern bad habits so that you can start to use them effectively and with more awareness. Physically this workshop will be strong but mindful, giving you tools to cultivate power from within. Energetically, the physical practice will also reflect the ability to step forward through obstacles in our life, perfect for keeping your motivation up and your fears and anxiety down as you take these wonderful and initial steps into 2016!

Hope to see you there!

Winter Warrior Workshop

IMG_0157On Saturday 28th November I did my first workshop at Yoga On The Lane in Dalston. Winter Warrior explored a little of the link between chinese medicine and our yoga practice and looked at ways to improve immunity and energy levels over the winter period.

Throughout pretty much my whole life I have personally struggled with my immune system. It was this struggle that led me to my own yoga practice years ago so it was a wonderful privilege to be able to share some of the knowledge that I’ve gained over the years that has helped me.

We melted into the body with a yin practice designed to stimulate the bladder and kidney meridians, before moving into an intelligently sequenced vinyasa flow designed to build fire from within and help empower the mind. Finally we explored some pranayama and kriya practices to help combat winter blues, bring balance to the energy channels of the body and hopefully, awaken our inner glow!

A massive thank you to all who came! I really hope to be able to share this workshop with more of you soon!

Happy winter warming to you all!
