    Jivamukti Yoga Level 2Book Now

    In Jivamukti Yoga the spiritual teachings of yoga are typically linked with the more physical practise (asana). Jivamukti Yoga was founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984 in New York. It is a Yoga method that is based on a strong Vinyasa Practice (connecting Yoga Asanas through fluid transitions, driven by the breath), and it integrates teachings from five other Yogic disciplines: Swadhyaya (Study of the Self/Philosophy), Ahimsa (the Practice of Non-Violence), Bhakti (Devotion), Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound) and Meditation. The purpose of this methodology is to learn how to improve one’s quality and joy of life, and to bring greater harmony into our relationships.

    Prana Kriya and Gong Bath (£25)Book Now

    Prana Kriya Yoga is a unique practice which has long been regarded among many great masters in India to hold the key to slowing down the ageing process. It harmonises and unites the flow of the physical movement in our bodies (kriya) with its energetic power. The blood is recharged with oxygen and simultaneously decarbonised, and the brain and spinal centres are rejuvenated. The premature decaying of tissues in the body can be stopped that way.

    This form of yoga also helps you to bring your actions in line with your mental and emotional state. It is a strong preparation for the awakening of the kundalini energy within you and for letting go of limiting beliefs and old physical and mental patterns that can hold you back. At the end of the practice, there will be a Gong bath in order to process all the work done.

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.


    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby


    Baby Massage classes with Alice at are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

    Meditation All LevelsBook Now

    The archetypal image of the yogi is often that of a person sitting in deep meditation. One of the oldest and deepest aspects of yoga, meditation can be thought of as a way of gradually refining our mental focus, intended to generate both greater mental calm and greater clarity. It is a time to sit quietly and to move our awareness inwards, away from the bombardment of external stimulation which characterises most of our lives.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    A softer and more meditative class, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.Yoga nidra translates as 'yogic sleep'. However, rather than actually sleeping, in yoga nidra you will lie down and be guided by the teacher into a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. As well as allowing our bodies and minds some much needed rest, this also allows the sub-conscious mind to be at its most receptive, so that the practice can help to sow seeds of positive intention as well as help let go of negative habits. Yoga nidra has also been shown to help relieve stress, tension and anxiety, and has become a valuable therapeutic tool in many contexts. Classes described as 'with Yoga Nidra' will generally include at least 20 minutes of yoga nidra practice, usually at the end of the class. No prior experience of yoga nidra is needed in order to attend these classes.

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.


    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby


    Baby Massage classes with Alice at are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practiced with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unraveling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes will vary from week to week, and are typically slow paced and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga NidraBook Now

    A softer and more meditative practice, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.

    Yoga Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep. It is state of physical and mental relaxation, between wakefulness and deep sleep and the objective is to cultivate that state, without falling asleep. It is used as a relaxation practice, also a form of meditation, treatment for stress and anxiety and purification of the negative habits of mind. It is generally practised lying in savasana, but can be done sitting, or semi-reclining. This can help one remain conscious and aware if there is a tendency to fall asleep.

    This form of yoga nidra was devised by Swami Satyananda from an ancient tantric practice and includes eight verbally guided stages. The eight stages are: Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa repeated and Externalisation.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Yogic Detox (£35)Book Now

    "Is yoga an effective method of detoxification? It may be, but it may depend on what you want to detoxify.’’ ~ David Life
    The yogi’s toxin is Avidya: misknowing or ignorance of the true self. Avidya is the cause of our suffering, creating negative emotions like anger jealousy and fear, making us feel separate from the whole. Join Luis and explore a range of yoga practices to detoxify the body and mind. We will explore a range of yoga practices to detoxify negativity in the body and mind:
    Twisting asana are particularly powerful detoxifiers, helping to restore the spine’s natural range of movement bringing rejuvenation, clarity and balance into the body and manipura chakra, the energy wheel connected with ego and power. With a dynamic twisting practice to fire up the belly, we will focus on the principles of twisting, including partner and wall work.
    Chanting helps us to not identify with the mind fluctuations, cutting through negative emotions. We will chant simple sanskrit mantras to purifying the mind as well as the atmosphere. Kriyas are practices to purify the physical body of various impurities and stagnation and Meditation practices cleanse and detoxify the mind helping us to LET- GO. Not suitable for complete beginners
