Peckham Levels, 95A Rye Ln, London SE15 4TG

This 2 hour workshop is designed to work deeply into the front body, taking us 360° around the mat, warming the body and exploring our spines. This flow will open and strengthen the muscles of your hip flexors and shoulders, preparing your whole front body to find greater ease in backbends. With a focus on opening the heart, you will be lovingly reminded that anything is possible when you are expanding from within and connected to your breath.

We will start with Pranayama, and end with elemental Yin Yoga, to help close areas of the body we are working. We will be looking at a variety of ways to open our spine and front body, engaging key muscles to create strength that supports us through our practice. After exploring a range of backbends suitable for every student, we will surrender into Yin.

After the class you will be treated with a delicious smoothie and vegan snacks from our favourite plant based brands to nurture the body and recharge your energies
