1st Friday of each month (from February 2018) – Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the practice of deep relaxation, or “yoga sleep”.

Yoga Nidra guides you into a state of deep physical relaxation, where the mind remains fully alert. You will be guided to observe your physical body, your breath, and then take your awareness within. This practice gives you the space and opportunity to connect with your innermost truth – to discover and return to that still, quiet place within.

Yoga Nidra is a powerful tool for healing, for insight and transformation.

A donation of up to £5 is appreciated, to cover studio hire costs.  For more information, please call Amanda – 07984 464042.


Yoga of the Heart for Women with Lorraine Taylor

Friday 8th June 2018 9.30am – 12.30pm

We will explore different ways of opening and softening the heart through yoga asana, breath, music and poetry.  The Sufis say you are a real Sufi when your heart is as soft as wool.  And many mystics, gurus and poets talk about the importance of the heart and how it is our gateway to freedom and love.

In the ancient texts of Kashmir Shaivism, there are many practices that connect us with our innate divinity.  They describe how the physical body can be experienced as infinite space and how we have become really familiar with its materiality due to the stresses, traumas and attachments held within.

Through Yoga, we start to see more clearly all the different layers of who we are and how we operate.  We investigate the transient nature of the mind, emotions and sensations and see how the boundaries of the physical body can dissolve if we let go of this idea that we are only a body mind entity.  By opening to all that is arising and viewing it with fascination rather than resistance, we enter deep into the heart and discover our true nature is Love.  This is a soft and tender moving meditation.  It doesn’t matter what shape or size you are or what level of flexibility you have. This class is open to all.

THE CALL – Loving Knowing Moving, Manifesting The Deep

An evening with Bernie Prior

Friday 8th June 7.30pm – 9pm

£15 (concessions available)

“Realizing is all there is.  Awakening is all there is.  Whether you know it or not, what you are awakening to is what you actually ARE and ‘it’ moves, ‘it’ lives, ‘it’ jumps from one cell to another.  It’s impersonal, it’s a dance, it’s what you love”.

Bernie Prior, known as ‘B’, invites us to fully Be in life as Awareness-Knowing in amongst, yet beyond, the conditionality of human experience.  He expresses himself as Consciousness to Consciousness, of Being to Be.  His words emerge and address to the heart of the listener, the immeasurable reality and completeness that we are.  His unique and deeply enlightened vision and loving call to open to a greater Love through everything will awaken your heart and your being from within to the surface.

Bookings through the website or on the door.
