WHAT TO EXPECT
Join Harriet for a 60 minute class, dedicated to rest, replenishing and grounding.
You can expect to rest in 3-4 postures each class, beginning with more upright/seated postures to help us unravel our days/bodies/minds, and ease into reclining postures, which a long savasana.
This class spends more time in postures (anywhere from 2-5 or 15-20 minutes) and also offers more silence from the teacher. We provide a playlist if you'd like to have background music playing.
WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR
Suitable for beginners through to experienced practitioners and yoga teachers. Something for everyone with opportunities to tone up or down depending on your mood, energy levels and needs. This class will involve some prone (i.e. front lying) postures, so modifications will be offered if you are pregnant. Feel free to contact us if you have a specific question or concern you'd like to chat through.

WHAT TO EXPECT
In this class, we share practices that are empowering, grounding and gleeful with you, creating space for you to thrive and flourish. We can begin to see this practice as a vital movement which enables space, community and time to acknowledge your experiences, cultivating a deep awareness of yourself and your body.
Despite approximately 80% of yoga practitioners in the UK being female, contemporary yoga is largely built upon a foundation and understanding of anatomy and alignment for men, by men. This isn’t to say that we should leave behind our dynamic, strength & heat building practices. Instead, perhaps there is the opportunity to explore a complement that is more grounded in experiences of women and woman-aligned, appropriate for all stages and cycles of life.
In general, this is a slower, softer class, which combines meditation, pranayama (breath practices), yoga postures and gentle somatic movement to help you attune to your body, cultivating ease and space.
WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR
This class is for you if you identify as a woman or woman-aligned (this is intended to be language which includes trans women, genderqueer people and femmes), it is fully-accessible if you a pregnant or postpartum, are menstruating or experiencing endometriosis. This class does not include prone (front-lying) or supine (back-lying) positions.
WHAT YOU NEED
A yoga mat (maybe, a carpeted floor is also probably fine!), a strap/belt/scarf, a blanket, a yoga bolster or a large cushion, and a block are all nice to have, plus anything else you like to have for your yoga practise.

In collaboration with Nourish, Theo Wildcroft is looking for a small group of yoga teachers to join her on a yearlong, once a month journey into collaborative practice together. Each month’s practice will be accompanied by a resource or two, chosen to help us explore a theme together. We will meet up on Zoom where Theo will lead us through a gently-led, shared practice of invitations and suggestions to guide our collaborative exploration. After the practice, we will have time to talk and share.
Themes will include:
Rooting, resilience and rising together;
Pushing edges, finding centres;
Balance in movement and stillness;
and Journeys and travelling.
This offer is open to any yoga or movement teacher. We are looking for a small but committed group who miss the community of moving together without moving in unison. Sessions will feel gentle, contemplative, relaxed and physically accessible.
The year begins in January 2021, and spaces are very limited.
Thursdays 9:30 – 11:00am GMT, via zoom

Leading students into a state of rest is a subtle, profound art. It is also a skill that can be learned. When we understand the roots, development and structure at the heart of practices like savasana and yoga nidra, we can hold a much safer, inclusive space to welcome our students into resting well together.
This training has been carefully designed to train yoga teachers in offering simple yoga nidras comfortably, confidently, and creatively.
This module is offered as part of the 300 hour teacher training, but can be taken by any teacher wishing to improve their skills in this area as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The module will run as five weekly sessions of three hours, and combine theory, practice and skills development.
1. Recipes for rest – how rest is experienced, barriers to rest, getting creative to help our students find rest
2. History of yoga nidra – from pre-modern origins to recent techniques, and managing student trust and safety
3. The structure of yoga nidra – a simplified structure for creating safe and simple practices, and techniques for grounding and post-practice comfort
4. Mapping the territory – exploring koshas, tattvas, chakras, European holism and other maps that have been used to understand the nidra ‘landscape’
5. Getting creative – finding inspired and responsive ways to offer the practice without getting out of your depth
Nourish Yoga Training's 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training is registered with Yoga Alliance (International), and is completed as a series of standalone modules which can be taken over 3 years. More modules are forthcoming in 2021.
There are limited spaces available. As this course focusses on preparing you to deliver yoga nidra, live attendance is required. You are able to miss one session and a recorded session can be provided for the missed module only at no further cost. If you need to miss the final week, which includes a teaching practice and feedback session, a catch up session maybe be provided at the trainer's discretion, and will incur an extra charge.
We believe in the importance and value of this training, and would like to offer a scaled pricing system, which enables attendees to pay which tier feels most appropriate for them. Please note there are NO further discounts available (i.e. no student discounts, etc).
Community price £139
Standard price £169
