Kirsty Norton's Yoga Classes
Sound Healing: Gratitude
This sound healing journey will give you the opportunity to focus on what you are grateful for in life. Tapping into gratitude brings positive emotions and provides an uplifting experience. It is a very healing process, associated with positive mental and physical health benefits. This experience is immersive. We recommend you lie in a comfortable position and do not multi-task - this is one for being completely relaxed and present. Wear good headphones for this journey and see where you are taken. Do not drive during any of these sound healing journeys. This journey ends with silence to simply absorb the sound healing, just stay for as long as you are able and come back to the present when you are ready.
Sound Healing: Letting Go
Enter into the realm of letting go of the day-to-day and drop into your consciousness, giving the active mind time to rest. This sound healing journey is a space to receive the bounty that awaits as you let go of tense muscles, a busy mind, or stress in the body. You are invited to set an intention before you listen and then let go of all effort, relax and surrender to the sounds. This experience is immersive. We recommend you lie in a comfortable position and do not multi-task - this is one for being completely relaxed and present. Wear good headphones for this journey and see where you are taken. Do not drive during any of these sound healing journeys. Towards the end of the healing, the journey takes you to the still space of silence to let the sounds settle and then Kirsty will bring you back to the present.
Sound Healing: Abundance
This sound journey is great for when you want to remember the spaciousness that's available within and around you. It will guide you to soak up the abundance that is already here and to remember the wonder that is on offer: the miracle of you. You will remember the abundance of what you are and it will take you into a soundscape that is rich and varied. Please wear good headphones for this journey and see where you are taken.
Making yoga really accessible, this chair yoga class is a short and simple sequence to bring space around the neck and shoulders and at the same time opening up the ribcage to invite in more breath. It will leave you feeling more spacious from the waist up. Great for those with limited mobility as well for practicing in the office or at work.
Relax Into The Feeling Body
This gentle, nurturing yoga class is not about the shapes that you may make, but is about how you feel during the practice. Become sensitive to how you feel so that you can bespoke the class to exactly that. Expect plenty of relaxing supine poses and some releasing lunges before opening the chest, hips and relaxing. A perfect class for releasing after a tough day.

Embrace Your Essence (3): Self Confidence
This lesson will focus on tapping into our navel centre, the area boosts confidence, self esteem and activates our potential. When you feel strong in this centre, you are far more likely to accomplish what you want in life. By focusing on our core we’ll remove any stagnation and activate our capacity. You will need a block.
Embrace Your Essence (2): Empower
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.
