2016 Yoga workshops with Michael Hutchinson

Join yoga teacher trainer Michael Hutchinson for a workshop on November 2015 for “Hopes and Fears” – the last in a series of masterclasses on the teachings of the ancient yoga sage Patanjali, about Klesha, a driving force within everyone, which can be experienced as five, often troublesome tendencies. Patanjali says we can find ways to first expose these tendencies and then loosen their influence on our thoughts, words and actions.  One of them is fear, and in this workshop Michael will explore the ways in which practising yoga can both provoke and reduce agitation and anxiety. “Hopes and Fears” is suitable for all keen students wanting to expand their understanding of yoga, teachers and trainee teachers.  The 3 hour workshop is from 11am-2pm and will include some asana, pranayama and meditation, as well as discussion. Teachers attending this event can count it as 3 hours CPD. In 2016 Michael returns with a 3-part series of workshops on the theme of Pranayama or yoga breathing techniques.  Pranayama, the fourth of […]

Yoga for Kids

Bring your kids to Studio Yoga for summer fun in the school holidays.  We’re running some half-day workshops for ages 5-9 and 9-12 with some yoga, games and crafts. Yoga is as good for children as it is for adults, and in India yoga was originally taught to boys when they were about eight years old.  It’s non-competitive so everyone can enjoy it and will help your kids to maintain their natural flexibility, build strength, improve their posture, balance and co-ordination. Yoga helps children to focus and simple breathing exercises can give them techniques to help with issues such as anxiety or sleeping disorders.  The ancient teachings that underpin yoga also promote positive values such as kindness, friendliness and being supportive towards others. Our Yoga for Kids workshops are on the following dates: Thursday July 16 10.00am-12.30pm, 5-9 years Friday July 17 10.00am-12.30pm, 9-12 years Monday Aug 24 10.30am-1.00pm, 5-9 years Tuesday Aug 25 10.00am-12.30pm 9-12 years   All workshops are £15 per child.  Bookings can be made online or email info@studioyoga.co.uk […]
