Coming out of winter hibernation, we have a tendency to go too fast, and start sprinting forward before remembering how to walk.
Join us to awaken for spring in a grounded way, drawing in the nutrients of the earth to enable us to grow. From there we can connect with the higher energy of the sun which allows us to flourish forth.
Accompanied by live music we will be doing Kundalini yoga, chanting & breathwork for a full body spring clean, ending with a soundscape to help us embody the work we’ve done.
The soundscape will include the kalimba, harmonium, South-African kora, fiddle, dijeridoo, chimes, guitar, voice, harmonies and Tibetan singing bowls.
Location: The Studio, the Salisbury Centre, Salisbury Place
Please arrive ten minutes early to get settled and ready to start, and bring your own mat.

Her Corporate Yoga classes are designed to address these issues using physical movement, breathing techniques and meditation.
