Astanga yoga 2 hour taught class with Nigel



A taught astanga class for anyone who is familiar with the basics of astanga yoga. In this class we will run through the sun-salutations, standing postures, and then most of the primary series, followed by a selection of back-bends, finishing with inversions and relaxation. The whole class will flow continuously from one posture to the next, with many options to suit all students. Astanga is a strong practice, but done in the right way can be soft and gentle at the same time. Acheiving this balance is the key to sustaining a life long practice. Come along and explore.

Introduction to Yoga Workshop with Nigel


If you are new to yoga, or if you have done some before but are a bit confused about all the different styles and the names, this workshop will explain what yoga is all about, where it comes from, why there are so many different types and how they developed, and what the benefits are of practising.  In the workshop you will be taught 3 short classes in different styles, to sample the differences.  There will be time at the end to ask any questions you may have, and Nigel will give you advice about which classes you can come along to at the studio, or elsewhere.  For any level of student, including total beginner.

Subtle Yoga workshops with Tarik Dervish


Unlike many, my Yoga journey began with subtle meditative practices and I discovered asana many years later. For me, yoga has always been a process that starts with the mind and works its way outwards through the energy body and into the physical body. Though I enjoy and appreciate asana practice, subtle work still remains the jewel of my practice. The experience that I look for in Yoga is best served by working with chakras, meridians, marma points and the subtle essences of prana, tejas and ojas that go on to form the physical body. We will also explore one of the pillars of classical yoga and ayurveda which is the proper maintenance of agni, or metabolic power. The physical agni is best served by diet, lifestyle and appropriate asana practice. The agni of the pranic body is kindled by more subtle tantric practices like pranayama and kriya yoga.

When: Saturday June 29th
Time: 10.00am-5.00pm
Cost: £75

In these workshops, I will approach asana practice from this classical perspective. We will consider the modes of practice from a classical and ayurvedic perspective which are one and the same. We will then practise some simple tantric meditations that bring the pranic body to life and give you a glimpse of yoga’s potential from the point of view of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

Each day will be a blend of classical yoga philosophy from the era of Kashmiri Shaivism and Hatha Yoga and a variety of asana and subtle practices. They can also be used to gain CPD points.

Entry criteria: You need to have practised yoga for least three years to appreciate these workshops.



When: Saturday September 28th

Set over the space of three weekends, one in April and two in May, the structure of the course is designed to be easily comprehensible and accessible to all yoga teachers, interested yoga practitioners of all levels but also for any therapists who would like to introduce breathwork benefits to their clients.
Students will gain a well-rounded and excellent understanding of pranayama and breath-work, in both theory and practice, through a clear step-by-step approach. The course is particularly suitable for those teachers who wish to refine and hone their breath-work skills and introduce the foundations of pranayama and breath-work into their classes.
