How do challenges work?


Tiredness, too much to do, stress, heaviness, ambivalence? In this series, we take a journey to activate our inner wisdom, our essence. Accessing this area gives you energy, strength and vitality. You will feel connected, grounded and spacious. Think of your essence as a jewel which has been covered in dust and just needs to be polished.

Accessing this area can be felt as a profound shift in consciousness. As you dive into this you access a state which is hard to put into words but imagine the most love you’ve ever felt and then multiply it by a million, a state of bliss.


You will flow through some asana, meditations and energy management techniques specifically focused on expanding your inner connection to free the tension in your body and mind so you can really embrace your essence.  

These classes are truly about loving yourself.  The videos are all gentle hatha yoga with meditation and breath-work and will be suitable for beginners and most bodies.

How we approach our daily life has an effect on our moods and our mindset. When we feel disempowered and unsteady, we get caught up in the pace of life, we get swept up by drama and get swayed off our centre. This sequence will help you to find that centre-point, that steadiness that you need to feel empowered and grounded. Being empowered helps you to act from your higher self, that space in you that always knows. This is a mindfully slow sequence, suitable for most bodies, with a focus on heart-opening and opening into your power but softly.
