Baby Massage Course

Baby Massage Course starts Feb 28thbaby_mass_group_crop


Baby massage is a lovely way to bond with your baby. It is a time of intimacy, loving touch and relaxation by which you can grow the range of ways of being and communicating together. Babies and children learn first through touch. This is why massage is so connecting. Through massage they learn to recognise, share and enjoy healthy loving touch.

Yoga Day with Edgar Oct 25


Alignment and stability in asana and pranayama


A day with Edgar looking at how the understanding of the introductory asanas provides the key to a clear pranayama practice.

In the morning session we will work on important actions to prepare the body for pranayama and look at the functions of breath in asana. 

After the break we will relax and focus the mind in supine poses to refine the techniques of Ujjayi and Viloma in Savasana and seated. 
The workshop will be mostly introductory level asanas and will include inverted poses Sirsasana and Sarvangasana. (If inversions cannot be practised some alternative poses can be done.)




Sunday October 25


10.30am–4.30pm including a break in the middle of day.


This day is suitable for those with at least a year of experience of Iyengar Yoga.



Concessions A limited number of concession places are available on a ‘fair-play’ basis, reserved for those who couldn’t afford to come otherwise:
cost £40.
