Beginners/Gentle Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is particularly suited to beginners, those returning to yoga having had a break, those with specific injuries or conditions or even those that consider themselves to be of a ‘certain age’ that might need a less challenging approach. We will cover general breathing practises, the basic and gentler postures, together with general information and possible discussion around movement and the potential difficulties we might come up against.

The aim will be to relax and enjoy.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of nearly 30 years of practice and study, with a broad experience of many styles and teachers. In recent years I have been moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential and ‘felt’ approach, influenced by teachers who have been inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.

Wed 12 Jan - 16 Feb (exc 2 Feb), Wed 2 Mar - 6 Apr

Led by Stuart Maxwell

Thurs 13 Jan - 17 Feb
2pm – 4pm
£92 for the 6 weeks course

Students will need to provide their own materials.

Either:
• A William Mitchell size 2 nib, reservoir, and pen holder
• A Brause 66EF, Gillott 303, or Nikko G nib and pen holder
• Fountain pen (fine or medium nib)
• Pilot pen 3.8mm, or
• Ball point or fibre tip pen

Plus:
• Ink suitable for dip pens (Pelikan 4001 is recommended) or fountain pens (Quink)/pilot pens as required
• Good cartridge paper A4 or A3
• HB pencil, ruler and eraser

Students may purchase their equipment from scribblers.co.uk

Intermediate Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is suited to those who have been practising for at least 6. My intention for this class is to move our practise forward, explore different avenues and approaches to the traditional postures. We will be aiming to be going deeper into ‘awareness’ and ‘noticing’.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of over 20 years of practice and study, perhaps moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential approach. Whilst looking at traditional Hatha Yoga postures and pranayamas, I will be encouraging fun and freedom within the traditional structure, whilst taking into our awareness fundamental anatomical and functional aspects required by our bodies for maximum wellbeing benefits.
