Online yoga, restorative yoga

Online Restorative Yoga Deep Relaxation course
Anytime, Anywhere
Lifetime access
Online course 

In this Restorative online course, i teach and guide you through eight key restorative yoga poses. You can then practise the poses individually, create your own sequence or follow one of the three sequences that i have created for you - 15 minutes, 40 minutes and 75 minutes, depending on how much time you have.


During a Restorative session, you are invited to slow down, focus on your breath and practise stillness or gentle movements. Yoga postures are practised usually supine or seated, supported by props, and held for longer periods than a usual yoga pose in a general class. This encourages the body to let go, releasing muscular tension, as the props are supporting your body rather than the muscles.

If you don't have the props then I also give you alternatives that you can easily find around your home! 

This is the first of a number of our online courses & workshops. 

"Thank you for a wonderful Restorative Yoga practise. I found a moment of peace & calm in an otherwise hectic urban existence" Teresa H

"A wonderful, luxurious practise of relaxing! I highly recommend this practise to anyone who wants to slow down and find inner peace and quiet" B.F

Level 2 Intermediate 
3 Week Yoga Course
Wed June 19th - 3rd July 
18.55pm - 20.10pm
£34 in person 

This course is aimed at more experienced yoga students. During this 3 week course we will explore more sophisticated pranayama practices including breath retentions, mudras (hand gestures), as well as an exploration of the bandhas (energy seals created internally by which a yogi can direct the flow of prana) Uddiyana, Mula, Jalandhar. We will explore too the concepts of the Kleshas, Kanchukas & Koshas - which come from the yoga tradition and can be explained as the different layers shrouding or covering our hearts and consciousness. An understanding of them can help explain what may be holding us back from reaching our full potential. 
We will also explore a wider range of postures including Supta Virasana ( reclining Hero pose) Camatkarasana ( Wild Thing) & inversions including Ardha Pincha Mayurasana / Dolphin, Salamba Sarvangasana / supported Shoulderstand & Salamba Sirsasana / supported Headstand). 
There will be a maximum of 10 students on this course allowing for more individual attention during the classes. Props including blankets, blocks will be provided and for those not doing inversions, alternative postures will be given. This is not suitable for beginners and students will be expected to have a strong understanding of the key principles of alignment of key postures as well as have a consistent and regular yoga practise.
There will also be an online resource to support you after each class to support your practise at home in between as well as to help you catch up if you missed a class.

"The heart of meditation"
7 week iRest yoga nidra / guided meditation course

Thurs 9th Jan - 20th Feb
7.15pm - 8.30pm
In person & online 

Thank you I have been given tools to deal with life in a better way" Margaret A


iRest yoga nidra and is an evidence based mind-body transformative practise. It teaches tools that can be used to skilfully deal with challenging situations throughout daily life, to deeply calm the nervous system as well as to develop a strong sense of well being.

This meditative practise shows that finding inner peace is not some closed secret but open to everyone who is interested in finding it.
This integrative practice also heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body and mind, not by asking the meditator to change themselves but by welcoming themselves exactly as they are. When true welcoming happens, then the profound transformation takes place. 

At the beginning of this practise, you are actively encouraged to lie down, (but you can sit if you wish to) and get as comfortable as you can. What follows is then a guided process of relaxation and self inquiry where you become increasingly aware of your physical body including your breath and inner world. You will likely experience yourself in a level of consciousness somewhere between being fully awake and sleeping and it is possible to lose the sense that one is separate from others and to tap into an unshakable sense of interconnectedness to all of life.
There are 10 steps to this meditation practise and each week we focus on key elements building up to a full practise in the 6th week.

People who practise iRest yoga nidra report:

*reduced depression, fear and anxiety

*greater ability to relax and enjoy life

*reduced insomnia and levels of stress

*improved interpersonal relations

*reduced chronic and acute pain

*increased inner peace and well being

Suitable for? 
Everyone is welcome. This is not a physical yoga class. All participants either lie on the ground, on a mat and blanket ( with optional bolster cushions /support under your knees and / or a blanket under your head) or you can sit in a chair or on the sofa.

Suitable for all levels including beginners and those more experienced in meditation.
