Happy Valentine's day
Love, kindness and compassion are not words you often hear in the fitness industry, but that is why we are different.
On the week of Valentines why not take this message and turn it back on yourself.
It is SO much easier to be kind and loving to others but we often forget to be kind and loving towards ourselves.
Be kind and compassionate in your words, thoughts and actions to yourself and you find that you will be more readily able to spread the love out to others.
An easy way to start that is to enjoy a little rest, instead of pushing yourself all of the time, try a restorative yoga Bliss class.
Ruth teaches the popular Friday night 6pm, it's a beautiful way to end the week.
Choi teaches the Sunday class at 3.15pm a lovely way to end the weekend, if you want a real treat book into her flow class before for a nourishing 2 hours of yoga.
Clare teaches the more intense yin class every Thursday, this class will stretch and open you up for the more dynamic practices.
If you need some action before you let go, Glow Yang and Yin yoga is a sweaty flow to get your stuff out, followed by restorative yoga and guided meditation.
The Sunday 90 mins with Nahid is a great way to start the day, the class builds from restorative to a flow and ends with yoga nidra with the time to build the class, this is a treat for both mind and body.
The 75 minute classes are taught by Sarah C teaches on a Monday night to get over the Monday blues and Wednesday for a midweek mood booster.
And Niko who will get help you to get the week out of your system on a Friday night.
Yoga reminds us that, we are all the same
If you haven't yet tried yoga, now is the time to start. Yoga has many benefits from weight loss ( where your mind goes your body follows), to lowering bad cholesterol, blood pressure, keeping you agile and mobile and emotionally resilient.
Yoga counteracts the affects of modern living, increasing GABA levels in the body.
GABA is a hormone responsible for keeping your brain and nervous system functioning well and helps to promote feelings of calm in the body.
Those who suffer from depression, for instance, tend to have lower levels of GABA.
You can join one as a standalone workshop or come along to all of them to gain a better understanding of yoga poses and alignment. More details here.
We will also be offering a Pranayama ( breath) workshop on Sunday 26th April to delve into the anatomy of breathing as well as exploring a range of breathing techniques. Take home breath exercises that you can use in your every day life to help you find the calm and peace in any given situation.
And if you really want to show yourself some deeper love, invest in a week of yoga in Turkey with Nahid and Ruth,#GoodVibes Yoga Holiday July 13th - 20th 2015.
Watch out though, this stuff is life changing!
