Full Body Tone
Strength and Empowerment
Join Petra for this energising Hatha class designed to build bone and muscle strength while also boosting your brain and heart health. This short sequence includes modifications for osteopenia and lower back pain as well as frozen shoulders, which are common menopause symptoms of low oestrogen.
Cooling Hot Flushes
Hot flushes are not just physical sensations of heat - they start in your brain. Low oestrogen can make your internal temperature gauge over-sensitive to small changes causing either hot flushes or cold chills. These symptoms can also be triggered by stressful thoughts, and if you feel embarrassed by your hot flush, this stressful feeling can make the flushes hotter and last longer. Join Petra for this class to both cool your body and calm your mind. She shows you two simple cooling breath techniques and subtle versions you can practice in public. This is followed by her Hot Flush Wave guided visualisation, Ocean breath and a restorative supported reclined cobbler pose to release heat and relax.
Rise and Shine 2
Rise and Shine, again! The second in the Rise and Shine series, back due to popular demand. Really simple 10 movements to gently start the day. No need for a yoga mat, these are movements to increase circulation and joint mobility with a little bit of strength. All from standing. Use it as a warm up for other classes or in the morning to get the body going. Equally good as a midday energiser or at the end of the day if you've been sitting for long periods or driving. A great way to break up the dy and feel more refreshed, centered and focused for the day ahead.
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.
Menopause Yoga: Befriending Your Feelings
This dynamic vinyasa yoga class is an energising but soothing practice which ends with a restorative yoga pose, relaxation, seated meditation and mantra. This class is designed to help you befriend your feelings at a time when erratic hormonal Pre-Menstrual Tension can trigger ‘energy surges’ and fiery emotions such as menopause rage. You will need a strap or belt, a bolster, a cushion and 2 blocks. NB - Modifications: hip and knee injuries take extra care, use a blanket when kneeling. If you experience hot flushes, keep your head level with your heart. Osteoporosis: avoid flexion rounding your back in forward folds; keep your spine straight. Trauma: hip opening poses and stretches across the chest can release tension but may also trigger trauma. Follow your own breathing pace, pause the practice when needed and find a comfortable resting pose.
Empowered Yoga Flow
During this intermediate vinyasa yoga class, you choose how dynamic or restful you wish the sequence to be for you. The main focus of the class making decisions based on how you genuinely feel; you can decide how you want to move your body and what is right for you in this moment. Class starts with a talk on what yoga is as a practice of empowerment and revolution, and how this relates to events in the world. How is our yoga related to the freedom we are seeking for ourselves and for others? Ava shares her thoughts on how yoga can be lived on and off the mat before moving into a sequence which includes inversions, such as headstand. Without fear, take this class, adopt the pose which is right for you and take your practice off the mat into real life. This class is trauma-informed.
