Yoga for creativity

Wednesday 6 November
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This series of beginner-friendly yoga classes has been designed to help you tap into your creativity and support you in finding your artistic outlet. The mind, body and soul are inseparable: each affects the other, as well as being affected by the outside world. In these yoga classes, we will move mindfully with the breath to become more aware of our body, thoughts and emotions. This helps us cultivate observational skills, which are key for being open to fresh inspiration.
As you practise awareness and experience new sensations in yoga class, notice how this starts to spill over into your day to day life. The practice encourages you to be confident and brave while keeping a sense of fun and light-heartedness. Yoga and creativity are naturally linked, both being strongly connected to expression of your instinct, or inner voice. Therefore these tailored yoga classes are sure to be the ideal support for your creative journey.
You are encouraged to bring a pen and paper to write down any ideas and to begin cultivating the habit of getting your thoughts out into the world.

Yoga Now is run by Lucy Brownhall, who has been studying Iyengar yoga for 33 years. The studio is fully equipped with mats and everything else you might need, including a rope wall (which is really good fun to use!)

Regular practice of Iyengar yoga has many benefits for physical and mental health. Mr Iyengar is credited with bringing yoga to the West and also with inventing the use of props (bricks, belts, bolsters, chairs and even mats!) which makes it possible for us all to get the full benefit of the practice. At Yoga Now, we teach informative and encouraging classes in the Iyengar tradition. There is clear progression within the levels and all aspects of yoga are gradually introduced, as the students progress.

Iyengar yoga is suitable for everyone and at Yoga Now studio, on the 4th floor of st Margaret’s House, we offer classes for all levels of experience. This class (Level 1) is suitable for Beginners and students wishing to consolidate their study at this level. Once you become familiar with the Level 1 syllabus and your strength and confidence in the poses is established, you will be able to move up to the next level of classes where you will be introduced to a wider syllabus of asanas and to pranayama.

Introductory Pass – £50 for 6 classes (to use in 6 weeks)
Autumn Term Pass – £128 for 16 classes (£8 each)
Drop-in £12 per class
We encourage you to attend the same class each week, with the same teacher, so that they can get to know you and help you progress better. However, if that is not possible, you can use your pass at any suitable class (we have 6 classes per week for beginners to choose from).

Meditative atelier

Monday 11 November
6:00 pm - 6:45 pm

Meditation is simply the creation of a nice space, it’s not achieving ecstasy, it’s slowing down and doing something with mindfulness but above all it starts from breathing. The way of breathing affects the way of thinking. And you won’t switched off your thoughts but your mind will become calmer. The process is not getting away from your mind, but accepting what’s happening without trying to fix our thoughts. We spend ⅓ of our life ruminating about past events, ⅓ illuding ourselves about future. We only have ⅓ left for present time. Meditation is simply being present. How? Starting from your body. If you feel deeply your body while it moves, you become present, because you are concentrated in what you are doing and so a natural status of meditation arises.
