What is Kundalini Yoga?
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient technology designed to awaken the Kundalini energy we are all born with, that lies dormant in the base of the spine (Muladhara chakra). It’s our essence, opening of the Soul energy and awareness, our creative potential, the energy of consciousness. Kundalini Yoga, known as the yoga of self awareness, is an uplifting blend of spiritual & physical practices, incorporating physical movements, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation and chanting of mantras. Kundalini Yoga helps us to work through and release any emotional blocks, stress and past trauma that is stored in our bodies. A total workout for body, mind and spirit, Kundalini Yoga works by freeing the flow of energy through the main seven chakras (energy centres). Kundalini session can produce powerful and dramatic results very quickly. It lifts your energy, aligning your whole being so you become more awake, aware, happy and vibrantly healthy.I'm looking forward to seeing you there. Level: Open to all Levels, including beginners. The class is small, allowing personal attention.

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

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
