Two Yoga Workshops in London

Pure Asana- A Vinyasa Flow Yoga Workshop
Rachel Spain
Saturday 13th May
@ The Lab Spa Muswell Hill, London N10
This workshop will focus purely on Asana, the physical practice of yoga and the second limb in Patanjalis Eight Limbs of Yoga. Asana means seat and refers to the postures we perform in yoga .This class will cover many asanas through beautiful, flowing sequences along to inspiring music. You will be lead through a thorough warm up of sun salutations/surya namaskar into some strong grounding standing sequences through to deep detoxifying twists, energising backbends, juicy hip openers and the option to try arm balances and inversions. Finishing up with seated work and a sweet savasana/relaxation. Yogis/Yoginis are invited to work at their level and take alternatives or adaptions when necessary.
The class will definitely bring in some challenges but the rewards will be well worth the hard work. You’ll leave this class feeling energised, relaxed and proud of yourself.
Expect to move ( a lot) sweat, laugh and learn some new sequences.

Look forward to dancing on the mat with you.

Connect with your breath- A Vinyasa Flow Workshop

Rachel Spain

Sunday 14th May
@ The Lab Spa, Muswell Hill, London N10

In this workshop we will be focusing on the breath.
We will learn pranayama techniques for energising, focus and calming the mind. We will also learn how to synchronise the movement and the breath in a Vinyasa Flow practice catered for all levels.
The importance of the breath in yoga is mountainous because without the breath the asana is just an exercise class. The connection of the breath to the asana is what makes it yoga and this is what brings on that magical effect we feel after a yoga session. Deep conscious breath helps to calm the mind, clears out the chitter chatter, reduces anxiety, releases tension in the muscles, it is detoxifying and cleansing for the internal organs, strengthens the cardiovascular system, increases energy and makes you feel good! We spend a lot of time in shallow breath due to busy hectic life styles this eventually leads to stress, anxiety and burn out.
Come and connect with your breath and find balance, health and happiness at any time in your life.
Look forward to breathing on the mat with you.

Get your Flow On

Sunday 22nd January 2017

The Lab Spa Muswell Hill

Price- £20

Join me for this beautiful, flowing yoga class, focusing on the dance and elegance of movement in vinyasa flow yoga.
In our asana practice we often fixate on the final pose and the journey there gets overlooked, rushed and becomes jerky and awkward.
We will look at the all important transitions from posture to posture and learn to feel the grace of each movement synchronised with the breath, bringing fluidity and grace to our practice. We will learn a short sequence that will build through the class and be “performed” to some inspiring music.
The fluid, flowing sequence will be balanced out with some strong grounding postures, inversion practice and meditation into a sweet savasana.

For booking info please email -info@rachelyogaandpilates.com
(Spaces limited so booking is required and fee is non refundable unless cancellation is received via email 14 days prior to workshop date).
