Kundalini Yoga and Gong
Kundalini yoga is the yoga of energy and its unique approach makes it especially transformative. It combines physical asana practice and breathing with mudras (hand gestures), bandhas (body locks) and mantras, and promotes both physical and emotional healing.

Meditation & Mindfulness
Mindfulness meditation helps us practice the art of letting go and relaxing. Mindfulness is the practice of bringing a non-judgemental awareness to the whole of our experience in the present moment. Meditation is the art of stopping, coming back to the present moment and letting go of our worries and preoccupations.
Teachers: David Litchfield

Qigong is the art and science of energy cultivation. Through time, work and enquiry we deepen our perception and understanding of the universal energy (Qi) both in our own body/mind and all things. Scientific research has shown the benefits of Qigong to health and wellbeing, and the practice can also develop spiritual, martial and artistic capacities. It has a strong relationship with Taijiquan (Tai Chi) through the use of soft, flowing and grounded movements which develop internal energy.
Teachers: Carmen Dolz
Reflective writing can awaken our unique richness and strength.

Ashtanga Yoga is a very strong physical practice as it involves unifying the mind, body and soul through the breath and asanas. It can be quite a challenging practice for complete beginners and is therefore more suited to those who have prior experience with some foundational asanas.

Neigong is the ancient Chinese practice of health cultivation through movement and posture. Neigong is the number one health optimising practice, developed by taoist sects over millenia. This is a strong claim which I urge you to put to the test of your own experience.
Slow Flow Yoga

Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. It also helps us to regulate the body’s flow of energy.
