EXERCISE FOR BODY & MIND...

A traditional and ancient form of exercise and mindfulness, Yoga enjoys widespread acclaim in the fitness and health community.  To many practitioners it is an exercise at once spiritual and physical.  For the scientific it is seen as a valuable tool to promote muscular health and maintain flexibility. 

We offer a variety of Yoga classes at OMH,  taking place Monday to Friday with breakfast, lunchtime and evening sessions to suit your schedule and needs. 

Monday

Yoga for Body, Breath and Mind

Mondays 6.15 - 7.15 pm

Teacher: Jenny Rose

This slower moving class is open to all levels and provides a welcome end to a Monday, giving you chance to move slowly and mindfully, to get back into your body, use your breath to release any physical, mental or emotional blocks and make more space for you.

Drawing on her study in Yoga Therapeutics and Mindfulness, Jenny develops sequences that target particular areas of the body, with the intention to open up in one or two particular areas each week, such as shoulders, hips, or even hands, fingers and feet. The classes are slower moving and can be taken at each students own level of intensity and depth. Due to the slow pace, beginners are welcome. Do be prepared to find points of stuckness in the body, or to reach points of strength being built -- both of which can be uncomfortable for a moment -- but ultimately lead to more strength and space.

The class has a meditative quality in both its opening, movement, closing, and breath work. Jenny creates a calm, safe space for all students to take what they need from the practice. The focus is on introspection, feeling and coming home to your self on your mat, rather than moving through a fast flowing Vinyasa - but as always, strength and deep release can be found. Mats can be provided. Spaces are limited.

PRICE: £12 drop in, £50 for 5 class pass, £90 for 10 class pass

BOOKINGS: Email jennyroseyoga@gmail.com to book or for any questions.

Wednesday

Yoga Foundations

WEDNESDAYS  5.30 - 6.30 pm

TEACHER: Jenny Rose

Yoga Foundations is a perfect class for beginners, anyone new to yoga, and those looking to strengthen the foundations and go deeper in their current yoga practice.

Jenny works through different areas of the body each month, building strength and stamina in different postures. One month we may work on upper body strength, looking at correct allignment and engagement in downward dog, and how these same muscles help in arm balances and headstand; another month we may focus on lower body looking at leg and glute strength, key standing asanas, working towards more fun balances like half-moon. There is a real sense of community in class, with the same students attending almost each week, and a sense of building on a solid practice with a flow from week to week. The class is drop in, and it's okay to drop in as you can; but students will get the most benefit and notice the most improvement in their practice if they attend regularly. Jenny brings a mix of understanding anatomy and allignment, having fun, buliding strength, opening stuck areas like hips and shoulders, and always focussing on breath work and ending in meditation, giving a complete physical yoga practice each week.

Mats can be provided. Spaces are limited.
PRICE:  £ Drop in £12, 5 class pass £50, 10 class pass £90.

MONTHLY CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

De-stress and Manifest Your Best Year Yet Yoga Workshop

SUNDAY 3rd February 09.30 - 12.30

TEACHER: CAROLINE MACINTOSH

Join me on the yoga mat as we celebrate and let go of the triumphs and trials of 2018 and stride into the New Year with vision and vigour.

At this special time of year of rebirth and possibility, come and let go of the stress that holds you to the past and manifest the magic that will see you flow into the fabulous year that you deserve.

Through intent, yoga ceremony, breath, asana (poses), partner work and hands on assists, this workshop aims to leave you feeling physically and emotionally lighter, more spacious, stronger and therefore more connected to your own powers of manifestation. Shifting you from patterns of fear and scarcity to ones of abundance and gratitude. The poses will concentrate on releasing areas prone to stress such as the neck, jaw, shoulders and back with a strong emphasis on connecting to intent, breath and core.

This workshop is part of a series that is heavily influenced by the teachings of Forrest Yoga and Forrest Yoga Guardian, Jambo Truong, that have helped me deeply in my own journey towards healing.

“Holding on is believing there’s only a past; letting go is knowing there’s a future.” Daphne Rose Kingma.

Teacher: Kat Aydin (Karma Yoga Edinburgh)

If you're feeling the need to hit pause, calm your busy mind and allow yourself to rest in the present moment, then this is the session for you.

Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style of Yoga that uses props (bolsters, cushions, blankets, eye pillows) to support the body, encouraging deep relaxation. Restorative yoga is best described as - active relaxation. The session is gentle, deep and slow, focusing on opening and stretching the body letting each body to find its own most natural way to open up helping it to restore and relax itself. Restorative Yoga switches you from the sympathetic nervous system (fight, freeze, flight) to the parasympathetic nervous system (rest, relax, and digest response) within 15 minutes. This style of Yoga helps you cope with everyday stress, insomnia and anxiety by using some of the most powerful yet simple poses in Yoga. A 90 minute Restorative Yoga practice is equal to 4 hours of sleep!

This session complements an active Yoga practice and anyone can practice Restorative Yoga, regardless of age, shape or physical condition, even those with no Yoga experience. The poses are designed to be comfortable. Music and aromatherapy enhance the experience, encouraging a total sense of letting go.

YIN YOGA MASTERCLASS

Sunday 3.30-5.30pm

Dates for 2019
27th Jan, 24rd of Feb, 31st Mar, 28th Apr, 12th May & 23rd Jun

TEACHER: Esme Lopez ( www.yogawithesme.com)

Yin yoga, based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, is a practice of self-love. Asanas (postures) are held for longer periods of time, forcing you to slow down and be still and present. No matter your age, it helps revitalise your body tissue and leaves you feeling as if you’ve just had a massage. It helps your blood circulate; improves flexibility and joint mobility; and, like meditation, puts you face-to-face with your thoughts, teaching you to deal with them one breath at a time, thus reducing stress and anxiety.

Esme’s yin yoga masterclasses are suitable for all levels and abilities and are the perfect complement to other exercises that focus on muscular tissues. Classes last two hours, including a five-minute guided meditation session and fifteen minutes of yoga nidra (guided relaxation). Unlike other forms of yoga, you’re not generating internal heat during yin yoga so please wear layers to keep warm.

PRICE: £20 per person

BOOKINGS: Email Esme to check ability  on esme@yogawithesme.com or pay PayPal visiting

ROLL TO RELEASE

Sunday 3.30-5.30pm  

Dates for 2019

13th Jan, 3rd Feb. 10th Mar, 21st Apr & 2nd June

TEACHER: Esme Lopez

Roll to Release is a new two hour masterclass that helps guide you through a combination of poses, breathing techniques and specialised movements using yoga therapy balls. It’s aim is to eradicate pain, improve posture and release specific areas of the body. This is done through releasing the myofascial of the body.

This class also incorporates accessible anatomy as a way to help solidify your mind-body connection (proprioception). Prolonged holds in tight areas of the body even provides self-massage trigger point therapy, easing tension. Therapy balls are supplied and each of Esme’s sessions will leave you feeling stronger, happier and more relaxed.

What is Myofascia?

Myo is the Greek prefix for the word ‘muscle’. Fascia is the dense connective tissue that surrounds and covers them, holding your body together. When it becomes sensitive or tight, Myofascial release is the answer. Myofascial release is a specialised physical therapy that focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness to enhance mobility and release pain and tension.

Focusing on trigger points, Esme’s Myofascial Release classes will offer a mindful method of full-body self-massage. You’ll learn simple yet effective techniques, deepen your awareness of what your body needs and release stress through guided massage and restorative yoga.

PRICE: £20 per person
