    Exploring Nada Yoga - A Yin & Yang Workshop (£35 earlybird until 12 May, £40 thereafter)Book Now

    The premise for nada yoga is that the entire universe and everything that exists within it, including human beings, consists of sound vibrations. The vibrations were there first before anything else came into existence and this expression of sound builds the basis for the creation and existence of all matter.
    We will start the workshop with some listening and chanting – receiving and creating sound – tracing external sounds, as they travel through space arriving at the ear, and noticing sound vibration internally. Then we’ll take this expression of sound into an energetic, flowing, fun, dynamic yoga sequence. To balance we’ll follow with a slow yin and restorative practice and deep guided relaxation tuning in and listening to the more subtle sounds of the breath and yet more subtle internal vibrations.

    For all levels apart from complete beginners.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised 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 unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based 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.

    Monday Beginners Yoga 6 Week Course Notting Hill (Pre-booking Required) £100 earlybird, £110 thereafterBook Now

    If you are new to yoga, want to get more confident with your practice, or have been practicing for a while but want to revisit the basics, then our beginners yoga course is for you.

    Drawing on over 25 years of experience of teaching yoga, our Beginners course introduces all the key elements of a Yoga practice including key yoga poses and sequences, breath awareness, linking breath to movement and basic Yoga philosophy.

    In addition to a weekly practice at the studio, each week you’ll receive a 15 minute video sequence to practice at home in your own time.

    We believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, size and level of fitness – but we also recognise that for those new to the practice it can feel intimidating to get started with our regular classes. This course provides a safe and welcoming space for you to get to grips with the basics of yoga and carve out time for your own wellbeing.

    Course Structure:
    This course builds sequentially, and has been designed to incorporate the full spectrum of yoga practices.

    Over the course of 6 weeks you will cover:
    • Week 1: What is Yoga – Moving with Breath – Standing Poses
    • Week 2: Grounding – History of Yoga – Movements of the Spine
    • Week 3: Introduction to vinyasa and Backbending – Yoga beyond Asana
    • Week 4: Twists and Backbends
    • Week 5: Seated Postures and Meditation
    • Week 6: Consolidation

    The Monday evening course is taught by Phillipa Gendall, an established Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow teacher. Phillipa's teaching style centres on the flow and grace of the breath linking the poses, with an emphasis on alignment. She feels a yoga practice should be made to 'fit your body, rather than your body fit the practice'.

    What next?
    The aim of the course is to provide a gateway into the diverse range of yoga classes on offer at The Life Centre. By the end of the course we should feel confident to attend any of our Level 1 or Level 1-2 yoga classes and more importantly, inspired to continue your yoga practice with us.

    Yoga can be a lifelong practice and a beginner’s course is only the beginning, but to help you on your way, on completion of the course you are eligible to purchase a half-price 10 class pass for £65 (one half price offer per client, if you have previously purchased a half price offer as part of our New Client Offer then this is not available to purchase again). Available to purchase up to two weeks after the completion of your course.

    **** If booking for more than one person, please call 020 7221 4602. Please do not book via the website as the second person will not show on the roster. ****

    Iyengar Level 1-2Book Now

    Iyengar Yoga, created by B.K.S. Iyengar, is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, emphasising the development of strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, as well as concentration (dharana) and meditation (dhyana). Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body (often with the use of props such as blocks and straps) through the development of asanas. It aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well being. Iyengar Yoga is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well being.

    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 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.

Specific poses offered at each class will focus on a different theme, however, all the systems of the body benefit from this deep relaxation.

After preparing the physical body through relaxation, participants are then guided through Yoga Nidra.

    Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation, and can be a deep form of relaxation. Generally practised in Savasana, it can also be done semi-reclining or sitting.

    Meditation All Levels (£7)Book Now

    With the mind in its busy everyday mode, we are often not able to see things with the necessary perspective. We can easily feel stressed, pulled into the future and past, and struggling to be truly present as our life happens.
    Meditation brings together mindful attention with a willingness to be quiet and tune in. We give ourselves time to explore what we actually feel, rather than trying to create what we think our life should be like. The more honestly we know ourselves, the more we are able to be in control of our moods and emotions.
    We’ll explore a variety of techniques inspired by Buddhist and Yogic teachings and secular mindfulness practice.

    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.

    If you are completely new to yoga, want to get more confident with your practice, or perhaps have been practising for a while but want to revisit the basics then our new, improved beginners’ yoga course is for you.
    Drawing on over 25 years of experience of teaching yoga, our Beginners course introduces all the key elements of a Yoga practice including key yoga poses and sequences, breath awareness, linking breath to movement and basic Yoga philosophy.

    In addition to a weekly practice at the studio, each week you’ll receive a 15 minute video sequence to practice at home in your own time.

    We believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, size and level of fitness – but we also recognise that for those new to the practice it can feel intimidating to get started with our regular classes. This course provides a safe and welcoming space for you to get to grips with the basics of yoga and carve out time for your own wellbeing.

    Course Structure:
    This course builds sequentially, and has been designed to incorporate the full spectrum of yoga practices.

    Over the course of 6 weeks you will cover:
    • Week 1: What is Yoga – Moving with Breath – Standing Poses
    • Week 2: Grounding – History of Yoga – Movements of the Spine
    • Week 3: Introduction to vinyasa and Backbending – Yoga beyond Asana
    • Week 4: Twists and Backbends
    • Week 5: Seated Postures and Meditation
    • Week 6: Consolidation

    The Tuesday evening course is taught by Sandi Sharkey, a supportive and experienced teacher who combines the practices of yoga, mindfulness and relaxation to promote centering, brightness and ease.

    What next?
    The aim of the course is to provide a gateway into the diverse range of yoga classes on offer at The Life Centre. By the end of the course we should feel confident to attend any of our Level 1 or Level 1-2 yoga classes and more importantly, inspired to continue your yoga practice with us.

    Yoga can be a lifelong practice and a beginner’s course is only the beginning, but to help you on your way, on completion of the course you are eligible to purchase a half-price 10 class pass for £65 (one half price offer per client, if you have previously purchased a half price offer as part of our New Client Offer then this is not available to purchase again). Available to purchase up to two weeks after the completion of your course.

    Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - 8 Week Course (£250)Book Now

     

    Modern London life can feel fast and frantic, leaving our minds often racing in overdrive. Whilst we can't always change the world we live in, we can learn to move through it with greater calmness and clarity.

    Following the gold-standard, evidence-based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme, this course will provide practical tools to help lower stress, increase resilience, improve focus and concentration, savour life’s joys and feel more balanced through life’s challenges.
    Mindfulness is a form of meditation that enables us to live our lives with greater awareness; being open to our present-moment experience rather than buffeted around by the busyness of our minds. Through sustained practice we can access calmness and clarity and meet ourselves with greater kindness amidst life’s challenges.

    This 8-week course provides a comprehensive introduction to mindfulness and practical tools for incorporating it into every-day life. Each session comprises of:

    Information and theory about what mindfulness is and how it can support mental, emotional and physical wellbeing
    Both short and longer mindfulness practices (some are seated, some moving, some lying down) to support you between sessions. Seated practices can be taken on a chair or meditation cushions.
    The opportunity for discussion and reflection on the practices taken.

    Participants are provided with handouts and recorded practices to support them throughout.

    The course is limited to 12 participants. Please note that to achieve the full benefits of this course, participants are asked to set aside 30 minutes, 5 days a week, to practice at home between sessions.

    Due to the nature of mindfulness based practices, this course may not be suitable for everyone. Therefore we request that all participants speak to Anna prior to booking on the course.

    Please email Anna on anna@mindbodybalance.co.uk directly if you are interested in booking the course or have any other questions. This course is not available to book online, it must be booked directly with our reception team once Anna has confirmed your suitability for the course.

    Please note that there is no session on 12th June.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga Nidra Book Now

    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.

    Breathwork and Pranayama - 6 Week Course (£120)Book Now

    This breathwork and pranayama course is for everyone.

    It is designed for those who would like to refine and progress with their breathwork alongside their physical practice or to help with health and well-being. This course is a journey of self-development and is mainly practical.

    The course is also ideal for all yoga and movement teachers who want to integrate safe pranayama and breath techniques into their classes and into their own self-practice.

    In Sanskrit prana means life force or breath and yama is translated as self-restraint or control. Thus, pranayama is the study of how to control and observe our breath.

    Practicing breathwork can have a hugely positive psychological, healing, therapeutic, meditative and calming influence on our body and mind. It is used to change old patterns and cultivate vitality. Learning to balance and improve the breath helps us to balance the mind and consequently our lives.

    Laurent Roure, has been practicing and studying pranayama in the style of Dr. Swami Gitananda Saraswati’s yoga system for many years. He is an advocate for the Gitananda system due to its strong emphasis on physical therapeutics. Laurent’s approach to pranayama also utilises breathing techniques from outside the traditional yogic system and seamlessly embeds them into his practice and teaching. Laurent’s approach is thus finely tuned to be relevant and applicable to our twenty-first century lives.

    What will you study during the course?
    • The anatomy of breath
    • Techniques for warming-up. Asanas, movement for breathwork etc
    • The mechanics of breath and how to connect with it
    • Rhythm and equalising of breath
    • Holistic and energetic development of breath
    • The purifying and warming breaths: Bhastrika & kapalbhati
    • The cooling breaths: Sitali and Sitkari
    • The balancing and calming breaths: Nadi shodana, ujjayi and bhramari
    • The breath for everyday life
    • The breath for meditation and relaxation
    The benefits of breathwork and pranayama techniques:

    • Indispensable tools that help us build a safe and strong physical practice
    • To develop body awareness, concentration, mindfulness, focus, and stamina
    • Decreases feelings of stress and tension

    Cultivating Self-Compassion: Practices to Support Greater Wellbeing and Resilience (£90)Book Now


    In this four week course we will explore how cultivating self-compassion - a sense of friendliness and tenderness towards ourselves - can enhance our sense of wellbeing and resilience.
    Whilst many of us find it natural to offer compassion towards others, we can struggle to offer the same sense of kindness and tenderness towards ourselves, especially when life brings challenges. Our ‘inner critic’ can dominate our mental state as we judge and criticise ourselves for our perceived failings.

    Increasing evidence supports that learning to cultivate a more encouraging, supportive and friendly relationship towards ourselves can help us to:

    - lower stress levels
    - reduce anxiety and depression
    - feel more resilient to life’s inevitable challenges
    - feel more connected rather than isolated when life is difficult

    Through this 4 week course participants will: learn about the core components of self-compassion; explore a range of practices to build compassion into our daily living; have the opportunity to share our experiences of the practices and their impact on our lives.

    Course limited to 12 participants. Early booking advised.

    **** If booking for more than one person, please call 020 7704 0919. Please do not book via the website. ****

    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 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.

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.

    Movement for Healing (£20 Early Bird, £22 Full Price)Book Now

    Join Eunice for an evening of nourishing, women-centred practice.
    This restorative workshop aims to re-establish, or deepen connection to your body in a respectful, female-supported space. Classes will begin with gentle movement, welcoming you back to your body, followed by an invitation to transition into quietness with a nurturing Yoga Nidra Meditation.

    The practice has been designed to be sensitive to the needs of all women, and works in the framework of trauma awareness. It hopes to foster a sense of being steady in your body without being overwhelmed by intrusive thoughts. Through mindful movements, the practice will support you to observe any physical sensations that may surface, promoting your resilience and self-trust as you learn to allow feelings and emotions to rise and pass by.

    No prior experience of yoga is necessary. Please dress in a way you find comfortable. Water and tea is available at the studio.

    At the end of the workshop you will have an opportunity to journal, which may prove a beneficial way to unload your thoughts. Notebooks and pencils will be provided should you wish to make use of these resources.

    Eunice hopes to encourage a sense of community and as such, tea, fruit, chocolate and company will be available at the end of the evening.

    Eunice’s earnings will go directly to Movement for Healing, a survivor-led, women-centred yoga programme for survivors of sexual trauma, working with various support and advocacy organisations in London.
