Intention and Motivation Yoga Workshops

Saturday 19th January
Sunday 20th January (2.15-4.15pm)
The Lab Spa in Muswell Hill.
Saturday will take a strong and steady Vinyasa Flow vibe whilst Sunday will be a Slow Flow and Restorative session.
Both classes will include a meditation where we will delve in deep and ask the Higher Self for assistance and guidance through the next stages of our practice and life. It may be a good time to update, adjust and adapt personal intentions ( or new year resolutions if you made them) to help us through any challenges, blocks or procrastination that may have risen from possibly placing too much pressure and expectation on oneself, which is very common at this time of the year!
Join me to go deep through the powerful practices of asana, pranayama, meditation, intention, mantra and deep relaxation.
Accept and Let Go, Re-set and Motivate, Be Gracious and Grateful.
Hope you can join me.

Autumn Rainbow Flow

Saturday 13th October
The Lab Spa
Muswell Hill London N10

Cost- £25

Book here via PayPal or email here to book by bank transfer

Join me for this bright, flowing vinyasa sequence to fine tune each of the seven energy centres or chakras. Chakras are like batteries for our bodies and each centre relates to a different part of the body, feeling/emotion and aspect of life. Our chakras can become depleted or over charged, especially through transitional periods, such as Summer to Autumn to Winter. This practice is designed to generate warmth and glow from the inside out and bring the chakra system back into perfect balance through asana sequences, pranayama, affirmation and chanting associated with each chakra. And as always, uplifting and inspiring music will carry us through the session.

All levels welcome- though advanced postures are offered each yogi is invited to work within their own boundaries and rest whenever needed with no pressure to “perform” every asana.

All equipment provided at the venue but please feel free to bring your own mat if you prefer.

Courage and Compassion

Saturday 30th June


Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Sunday 1st July


Slow Flow, Restorative and Meditation


Venue-The Lab Spa, Muswell Hill, London

Price- 20 for 1 session 35 for both


The focus for this weekend will be Courage and Compassion on and off the mat. 

These two significant qualities relate with the Manipura (navel) and Anahata chakras respectively.
On Saturday we will explore the two chakras through a Flowing Vinyasa sequence and Sunday will take on a more restorative and meditative feel. Both sessions will connect to the two energy centres of fire (manipura) and air (anahata) not only through the beautiful dance of asana but also with a deep awareness of transitions and breath whist immersed in asana. We will create personal affirmations for each chakra, set intention for on and off the mat, use visualisation in meditation and all this accompanied by inspiring music. My objective is to guide you in building a bridge between the navel chakra, centre of self and heart chakra, centre of love. Developing courage, confidence and self belief better equips us to offer out whole hearted love, compassion and joy to others. Self care leading to selfless action.
You don’t need to attend both sessions but of course I would love it if you could.

Dance Your Asana
Saturday 28th April
Fluid & flowing, strong & graceful this class will bring beautiful Vinyasa Flow sequences to build heat, strength, flexibility and lift your spirit as we dance our asana on the mat. This will be a challenging session but open to all levels as there is an abundance of adaptions and plenty of ‘rest time’ on offer throughout. Make the practice your own and work within Your comfortable boundaries, with the possibility of stretching those boundaries if you feel up to it on the day. The music will be top notch so if you want to come and simply listen, dance and soak up the positive happy vibes, that’s cool too :-)

Yoga Conditioning & Deep Stretch
Sunday 29th April
Often in our practice we hit a wall with certain asanas due to lack of strength and flexibility in specific areas of the body. During the continuous movement of a Vinyasa class there is a lot going on so it can be difficult to focus fully on engaging certain muscles effectively that we require to stabilise and support our bodies. In the first hour of this session we will work on correct alignment and posture, core activation, shoulder stabilisation, strengthening exercises for legs, arms and abs and we will apply this to Surya Namaskar (sun salutations).
The second hour we will stretch out those tight spots, explore correct alignment and posture within the stretch and also utilise the breath to help release and unravel deep holds in muscle fibres and fascia.
We will close up with a sweet savasana.
I hope for you to leave feeling super energised, super strong and released of any unwanted tension physically and mentally after this session.

Vinyasa Flow Vibes
Sunday 19th November 

Slow Flow & Restorative

Focus - Satya 💚

Satya is truthfulness.
We come together in these sessions on the yoga mat in "Satsang" ( a gathering of true people)
To practice Satya not only on the mat but in our everyday lives we must try to speak, think and act truthfully in a way that causes no harm but does some good to other beings and to our planet.
Being mindful of the power our words, thoughts and actions can have on others can begin to teach us how to live a more truthful and compassionate life ..thus creating a positive karmic path for ourselves and those around us.
Saturdays session will be an up beat challenging Vinyasa Flow dance with plenty of adaptions and alternatives for all levels. Sunday we will take a beautiful slow flow sequence that will lead us in to longer held asanas moving us deep and allowing us to let go of unwanted tensions in body and mind.
Cost-£20 for 1 class £35 for both.

Connect with your breath- A Vinyasa Flow Workshop
Rachel Spain

In this workshop we will be focusing on breath or pranayama within a Vinyasa Flow class. 
We will learn pranayama exercises to energise, focus and calm the mind and there will be a beautiful flowing asana sequence that will synchronise movement and breath into a dance on the mat.
The importance of conscious breath in yoga is mountainous because without this connection the asana is just simply an exercise class. The joining of breath to asana is what makes it yoga and this is what brings on that magical effect we feel after a 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, tap into the depth, rhythm, steadiness and release of conscious breathing that will help you find balance, health and happiness in every day life.

Dance your Asana
Saturday 23rd September

A beautifully choreographed Asana sequence that will guide from posture to posture seamlessly with attention to moving gracefully through the transitions. Expect some challenges, if you choose to take them, plenty of alternatives/adaptions to take when needed and positive happy vibes all around. All accompanied by inspiring music as always.
The intention of this practice is to find balance in grace and steadiness through the wonderful physical yoga practice of Asana. So come dance with me 🙏🏻❤️

Ahimsa- The No 1 Yama 🙏🏻🕉
Sunday 24th September

This session will be a slow flow to warm through and prepare for deeper, restorative, supported asanas that will be held for a longer period of time with the use of yoga props.
Through this deep, healing, energising session we will explore an important part of the yogic philosophy taken from Patanjalis Yoga Sutras.
We will be focusing on and learning about the first of the five Yamas ( yoga restraints). Patanjali gives us eight limbs or eight steps to reach the state of yoga. The Yamas are the first step and act as our yoga ethics.Ahimsa is the first of the five Yamas.
Possibly the most important practice that all other yoga practices stem back to is Non violence -Ahimsa.
Learn how to apply this into your practice, everyday life, relationships, thoughts and general being.
A truly cleansing and life changing part of our yoga journey happens when we live an Ahimsic life.
I wish for this session to leave you feeling calm, peaceful and full of compassion.

£20 for one session
£35 for both sessions

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).
