March 3rd & December 1st – 11.15-13.15

Yoga as we often know it is a physical asana-based practice. Yet asana is only one of eight limbs to the practice of yoga.

In this session, KPJAYI Level 2 authorised Ashtanga teacher, Emma Isokivi, will share the nuggets of her knowledge gathered from several trips of personal study in India to explore some of the other seven limbs of yoga, including the history, philosophy and key texts that go behind the asana practice. Using these key texts (Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali, Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradīpikā) we will discuss how we can apply some of this theory both on and off our yoga mats.

The course will intertwine the Ashtanga vinyasa practice, but also crossover for other broad yoga disciplines, so all practitioners are welcome.

The sessions will be 2 hours long on Sundays, and will have a relaxed and interactive approach to them (feel free to bring a coffee or juice into class). There will be a largely seated class, with some basic breath instruction. No need to bring your mat- but comfortable clothes, water and notepads with you.

Emma is excited to share some tools of to how to evolve your yoga practice from a physical one on the mat, to a fuller lived practice off the mat. 

If you have questions about the course just drop her an email at: emma@meadowlarkyoga.com

These sessions are £20. Pre-booking is highly recommended.

Deep hip opening- unlocking your yoga practice – £25

August 18th – 11.15-13.15

Join KPJAYI Level 2 authorised Ashtanga teacher, Emma Isokivi, for this fun, 2-hour hip exploration workshop.

Designed for all levels, this workshop is the perfect addition to a regular practice, to bolster getting into those tricky asanas, or those newer to yoga that are seeking more flexibility in this area.  We will explore deep lunges, twists and various rotation of the hips to unlock the pelvis for more freedom to access postures like padmasana (full lotus). 

The 2-hours will feature some simple anatomical explanations and also leave you with tools of how to continue working beyond the workshop.

The workshop will feature a large element of movement- both dynamic and restorative, so wear clothes that you are comfortable to move in.

If you have any questions about the sessions at all, please email Emma: emma@meadowlarkyoga.com
