Based around themes, our workshops are for those who want to advance their practice. Lasting from two to five hours, the themes range from practical subjects such as science and anatomy to the more esoteric practices such as meditation and relaxation, mantra, and pranayama. Yoga is such a vast subject (it is 5000 years old, after all!), there is always something new to learn, regardless of how many years you have been practising.

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1274910405896072/
Cat is returning for another wonderful workshop!
The first turning of the wheel of dharma: the four noble truths and the eightfold path.
What does this mean to us in the modern world and how do we practise with compassion and wisdom?
This workshop will build from the ground up, reviewing the components of the yoga practice that we “think” we know so well.
it will have its challenging moments balanced with the understanding of how to make sense of them to see their value.
You will get what you put into it…practice = life/life = practice.
The Journey from Condé to Sangyé
From the fashion floors of Condé Nast in New York to the wooden floors of Sangyé Yoga School (Jivamukti Affiliate London), cat had officially traded in her Manolo Blahniks for a more ‘grounded’ approach to life…in bare feet.
Cat is originally from New York City and has been calling London home since spring 2004. She feels very privileged and grateful to have been involved with the previous incarnation of Sangyé Yoga School (Jivamukti Yoga London) since its inception and manifestation in 2005. With sincere love and admiration, she thanks Manizeh and Danny Rimer for always seeing the best in her for and for ultimately giving her a “job”.
If titles bear significance to the reader, here they are: Advanced Certified Teacher (Jivamukti), Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance UK) and Co-Director alongside her husband Phil.
LOVE & GRATITUDE: the husband phil, the parents, all the teachers, the students & the notorious biggie smalls…lastly, this life for all it has introduced thus far.
Joanna Najduch Chakra Vinyasa
Saturday 1st July, 14:00-17:00
Joanna is back by popular demand! Come and experience Prana Flow© Yoga
inspired by the teachings of Shiva Rea.
Joanna will guide you through a dynamic yoga flow focusing on opening the 7 Chakras with Bija chants
whilst in the flow. Her joyful practice will challenge you and strengthen you in equal measure.
This workshop focuses on the Chakra system as a means of finding fluidity, grace and energy in a flow yoga practice. You will be led through a dynamic vinyasa sequence of Asanas and Mantras in order to pierce through any blockages in the subtle body and gain a fresh clear perspective on your practice and life. Each Chakra embodies a colour, sound, vibration and element.
We will call upon each Chakra to turn the wheel and create new flowing thoughts and life force.
This workshop will lead you to a deeper understanding of this fundamental system that relates to more than just postures of yoga. Relaxing Yoga Nidra to finish!

Twist and Shout Workshop
Saturday July 15th 1.30pm to 4.30pm
Twists are DELICIOUS… They are the great equalisers of yoga asanas. They strengthen the spine, they keep the nervous system healthy, they allow us to see things differently, and they fire up Manipura Chakra (the seat of our willpower).
In this workshop we will begin with a 45 minute yin practice, to ready the spine for our flow.
A short break, and then a 90 minute vinyasa flow, working deeper and deeper into some delicious twisting postures, and binds…
Before the relaxation, there will be a mantra session, working with the Gayatri Mantra, the most auspicious of all of the mantras, encouraging wisdom, and illuminating our intellect.
A beautiful yoga nidra to finish.
Refreshments available at the end…
A wonderful way to bring some fire into your belly!
