New Moon Yoga and Intention Setting Workshop
The Sunday of the New Moon, Santosa, 21 Albert St, 6-7.30pm, £18. Book here.
3rd March – New Moon in Pisces; Dive Deep
The next new moon will rise in Pisces, a water sign, full of intuitive emotional energy. This sign lies at the end of the zodiac. It marks a time of endings and letting go. At this time of year, just before spring arrives, we can learn to trust our intuition and have the confidence to know what we need to release and what we need to do more of.
This workshop involves a 45 minute yoga practice which will be themed around the energy of pisces so that we can learn how we embody and express this energy in ourselves.
We then take time to set our intentions for the month to come – writing down our intentions for who we wish to be, how we would like to act, speak, think.
We usually have a little creative activity too and this month we’ll be making dream jars, to store, collect and remind up of our dreams.
Please bring a little notebook and a pen so that you can write down your intentions. Yoga mats available at the studio but feel free to bring your own.
7th April – new moon in Aries
The beginning of a new cycle of the moon is a naturally reflective time and coming together in a group brings support and power to this practice.
We’ll open with a little info on lunar astrology and explain the energy of this particular new moon. We’ll then flow into our yoga practice, designed specially to help you experience this emotional energy for yourself and discover what it means for you. The final half hour will be spent setting our intentions for the next four weeks. It’s part of a process of living with more awareness and intention, cultivating the ways we’d like our life to develop.
I run this workshop with Sara who has run new moon circles in the past. If you’ve never been to anything like this before we would love for you to attend. And don’t worry – we’re not massive hippies! Just two women who have found that this practice of living intentionally has been beneficial in our own lives, who would love to share this with others.
Spring Equinox Workshop
Saturday 23rd March 2019, 9.30-1pm Santosa, 21 Albert St, £35. Book here
Spring is the time of year when new life starts to bloom. Equinox (when daylight and night are equal) represents a wonderful opportunity to mark the changing of the seasons and to welcome in this new energy in our own lives.
This is a time, alive with activity and movement; when the seeds we have sown over the winter start to peak above the earth.
This workshop is an opportunity to touch in and see how you wish to cultivate this energy in your own life.
Our yoga practice will be themed around these ideas. It’s a chance to see how you embody this energy, how it feels and presents in your life.
We then take time to contemplate, reflect and set intentions for the season to come.
There’s usually a little crafty/creative activity too – yay!
These are very special workshops. There are only 10 spaces available – join us, and start living less out of habit and more out of intent.
Please bring a little notebook and pen to write down your intentions.
Some feedback from people who attended our previous seasonal workshops:
“I absolutely LOVED today! Thank you so much, both of you. I thought the day was really cohesive, balanced and balancing. A total joy!”
“The workshop was just what I needed, it had a great impact on me and over these few days since I have kept returning to it and I really look forward to the next one.”

Sivananda Yoga Masterclass
The Sivananda practice is a set sequence of hatha yoga (meaning we practice the same poses in the same order each time). We start in savasana, then practice two breathing exercises, sun salutations, and 12 different asanas followed by a long guided relaxation. The focus is on moving with awareness and breathing deeply. This practice aims to stretch and strengthen, moving the spine in all directions as well as moving the different energies in the body so that you feel balanced by the end – both energised and calm.
Practicing a set sequence can be really rewarding as it helps you see changes in your body and practice since you last did the sequence and practiced particular poses.
Read a blog I wrote for Santosa on the Sivananda practice here.
