Spring Yoga Day

Practising yoga in Spring is quite different to in the Winter. Winter is all about recuperation and energy conservation, whereas in Spring, beginning mid March, we need to start opening up the body, gently.

The floor postures are all about opening the heart and abdominal areas, expanding the chest and lungs. Postures like upward dog, half pigeon and camel as shown in the pictures on the side.

As the clocks move forward in March, we look forward to longer days and lighter evenings. We are woken up by the dawn chorus of the birds and quite gently we are coerced into a natural light lift of energy.

It is truly a wonderful time to start practising a little yoga and meditation each day. This wonderful Yoga Day will get you off to a right start and bring warmth and sunshine back into your body to open up all your senses :

  • Loosen your neck, shoulders and hips
  • Clear your sinuses and head with more oxygen
  • Open up your hips and pelvic area
  • Stretch your spine and back muscles
  • Start to feel alive and awake after the cold winter months

The Yoga Day mini retreat is held in a stunning little village in Buckinghamshire with plenty of space in the hall and a small garden to sit outside if the weather is good. We have a large kitchen in the hall to provide everyone with hot drinks throughout the day.

Your Yoga Teachers

I will be joined with my colleague Karuna White to teach with me on this Yoga Day. We have run several workshops together and also Yoga Retreats.

We both trained with the Ruth White School of Yoga and Karuna has been teaching yoga for over 25 years. Karuna has a BSc Human Physiology.  She is particularly experienced at helping her students alleviate back and neck problems through alignment, great posture and core strengthening. Her teaching allows you to reach a deeper state of relaxation and feeling revitalised in mind, body and spirit.

Yoga Day Testimonials 

“Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing day! It was just perfect. The energy in the room was so restorative and calming, just what was needed!”

~ Debbie T –  August 2023 ~

“There wasn’t a part I didn’t enjoy. Lovely venue made cosy by candles. Having adjustments made during the postures made a such a difference, I have never been in a class where I have had this. One thing I will remember is a wonderful sense of peace on the whole day.”

~ Mitra B March 2022
