Seasonal Yoga Sundays
with Ali Rose
‘An invitation to take ‘time out’ each season and restore your vitality through yoga’
10 – 4.30 pm
April 29th / July 8th / Sep 23rd / Nov 18th
An opportunity to enjoy a whole day of yoga , with time to dive more deeply into the benefits of yoga asana (postures) , breathing and meditation practices.
Surrounded by the beautiful land of Ragman’s Lane Farm we will be reflecting on the wisdom of each season as we cycle through the year.
Each season we will take a deeper look at the yoga practices which support the energy of the time of year. We will begin our journey in Spring, with it’s invitation for life to refresh, renew and blossom. This is a time where we look for our yoga to nourish and re-awaken us, body, mind and soul in preparation for the growth of our year ahead. Our asana practice will focus on opening the body with simple yet energising back bends. We will explore breathing practices which revitalise and balance us, and introduce the foundations of a meditation practice.
Whilst these seasonal sessions are ‘stand alone’ – throughout the year they combine to offer students who are looking to broaden their understanding of yoga, an opportunity to dive deeper. As each workshop will focus on a family of postures such as ‘twists’ or forward folds, a session will;
- build our understanding of the movement principles which support the practice of this group of asana
- look at how we can modify postures to find versions which suit our unique physicality
- explore how this group of postures fit into an overall balanced practice .
Equally, these will be relaxed days, with time for tea, chat and a lunchtime walk around the farmland!
Teas and light refreshments provided. Lunch will be bring ‘bring a vegetarian dish to share’.
Individual days £65.00 (early bird price £55.00 available 6 weeks prior to each day)

A 50 % deposit will secure your place, with full payment required 4 weeks prior to the workshop.

Balancing movement and steadiness – the ‘3 Gunas’ at play in our practice
May Workshop – Sunday May 7th ’17 2 -5 pm @ Ragman’s Lane Farm GL17 9PA
According to yogic philosophy all of nature (which includes us!) is comprised of 3 strands (gunas) which are constantly interacting with another.
Rajas is the energy of change, Tamas is heavy and dense whilst Sattva shows itself in balance and contentment. We bring our daily life experience’s of physical and mental restlessness / lethargy onto our yoga mats …. so our yoga practice then provides the perfect vehicle for us to witness how these tendencies express through each of us individually and at different times……. to shine a light on the gunas at play in our practice!
Using a variety of practices from our yoga ‘toolkit’ we can begin to re-balance rajas and tamas and cultivate the balance and harmony of Sattva, which in turn we can take ‘off the mat’ and back into our daily lives.
Places are limited so please book early.
£20 early bird (before April 10th) / £25. 00 thereafter
Venue : in the cosy underfloor heated ‘Mushroom Shed’ at Ragman’s Lane Farm, Lydbrook GL17 9PA
