An empowering and healing masterclass with Michelle Nalini Deane.
Online Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra

This session combines the deeply relaxing practices of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra in the comfort of your own home. So grab some pillows, a quiet space and allow yourself some time for you.

In the first half of the session you are encouraged to relax fully and breathe into passive yoga postures while being supported passively by props. This allows the muscles to fully soften and relax, increasing flexibility without strain and supports the healing of physical and emotional stress-related issues. The second half of the session is dedicated to the still practice of Yoga Nidra, a powerful relaxation dedicated to calming the nervous system and restoring the body and mind. These non-movement practices are excellent for anyone suffering with illness, pain, sleep issues, stress and anxiety, trauma, fibromyalgia, MS and busy minds.

The price of this great workshop is just £10, or one class credits for our existing clients.

The first session took place on Friday 26th February and will continue online as follows:
  • 1st October 2021
  • 5th November 2021

Yoga immersion workshop with Annja Haynes
Quarterly Yin Yoga Workshop

Yin Yoga is a slow physical practice where specific asanas (postures) are held for much longer than in more traditional yoga classes, allowing conscious relaxation of the muscles with time to soften and release. This is a floor-based class which improves circulation in the joints and increases flexibility of the tendons, ligaments and fascia (the connective tissues that holds us together).

These sessions are excellent for anyone who suffers with muscle and joint stiffness as they facilitate deep stretching. The slow and calming nature of this workshop facilitates deep physical and mental relaxation, supported by breathing practices.

These two and a half hour workshops are suitable for beginners and for those that already practice Yoga, as everybody will be guided to their own appropriate depth. The sessions provides time to discuss and explore each posture and to ask plenty of questions, and are a great addition to Annja’s regular studio Yin classes on a Monday evening and Thursday lunchtime. You can read more about Annja on our team page by following this link.

The price of these workshops are just £30, or three class credits for our existing clients, and will be held either at our Denne Parade or Carfax facilities.

The workshops takes place quarterly, with the schedule as follows:
  • 13th November 2021– Yin for Winter – Relax and Restore
  • 12th February 2022 - Yin for Spring - Renew and Awaken
  • 4th June 2022– Yin for summer – Energise and Explore
  • 10th September 2022 – Yin for Autumn – Release and Restore
  • 19th Nov 2022 Yin for Winter – Nurture and Rest

For those already registered with our Pike 13 online booking system you can book onto the session in the normal way, or you can follow the link below to pay via PayPal, letting us know in the special instructions which session you're booking for.

Cultivating Self-Compassion and Loving Kindness with Lisa Jacques
A Yoga Workshop For People Living With And After Cancer

In association with the Olive Tree Cancer Support Group Charity. Held at Total Therapy Studios in Denne Parade. £30.00 (Additional Donations to the Olive Tree Cancer Support Group)

Lisa Jacques is specialist ‘Yoga for Cancer’ teacher and oncology nurse working with cancer patients for 16 years. Join her for this nourishing two hour workshop designed specifically for people affected by cancer. Yoga can be hugely helpful in enabling people to cope with the physical side effects of their cancer treatment and with the emotional, spiritual and psychological effects of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

This is a two hour workshop for:
  • People recently diagnosed with cancer
  • People receiving treatment for cancer
  • People recovering from recent cancer treatment
  • People living with the longer term effects of cancer and its treatment
  • People thriving after a cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Your friends and family support network
Yoga is accepted and advocated as a safe complementary practice by oncology professionals and cancer charities, and there is a growing body of scientific evidence to support this. Research shows that yoga has stress-reducing effects for people going through cancer treatment and that the benefits of yoga go beyond that of simple stretching exercise and appear to have long-term durability. Yoga has been shown to improve physical and psychological symptoms, quality of life measures, fatigue, inflammation and markers of immunity in people with cancer.

Science in the field of psychoneuroimmunology confirms that we cannot separate the mind from the body when looking at cancer and yoga offers a whole person approach working with mind, body and spirit.

During this workshop you will:
  • Look at the practices of self-compassion and loving kindness (known as ‘Metta’ from the Buddhist yoga tradition) using simple but powerful meditation practices.
  • Work with some breath practices (pranayama) to develop presence and stillness. These practices have a direct effect on the parasympathetic nervous system via the vagus nerve promoting relaxation and rest.
  • Mindfully move into some gentle yoga postures (asana) with a focus on acceptance and loving kindness. These postures can be modified for all abilities and stages of cancer treatment.
  • Be guided through the powerful practice of deep relaxation using Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) allowing any tension in the body to dissolve, the mind to become less busy and for fear, pain or worry to subside. Yoga Nidra is a deep and progressive way of relaxing the body and creating a deep brainwave state.
The intention is for you to feel nourished and nurtured and to have some simple practices you can take home with you.

If you'd like to attend, then please follow the link below to pay via PayPal. You'll receive confirmation of your booking within 24 hours, and a reminder will then be sent out to you 48 hours before via our automated booking system.
