Starts April 1st

Join Gina on Fridays for a Vinyasa and Yoga Nidra practice which will leave you feeling stretched, rested and energised for the weekend.

Classes are 60 mins and begin with gentle breath and body awareness, moving through an asana (posture) sequence influenced by the Ashtanga primary series, before ending with a restorative Yoga Nidra.

There will be a focus on the breath and correct alignment throughout, moving from one posture to the next through a flowing Vinyasa sequence. Postures will be guided to be both accessible and challenging for all levels of practitioners.

Classes are suitable for all levels and ages and all are welcome – yoga is an inclusive practice. Variations and modifications will always be given, as well as hands-on adjustments (optional). I aim to create an open, welcoming and non-judgemental space for students to explore postures and the breath.

If you are a complete beginner, pregnant or working with any serious injury, please kindly send me an email before class. Please note, this is not an Ashtanga class and no previous experience of this is necessary.

Drop in: £8

About Yoga Nidra:

Yoga Nidra, in short, means yogic sleep. It is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, induced by a guided meditation. It is an extremely healing and therapeutic practice, leaving you feeling relaxed, rested and recharged.

It is a deeply nourishing yoga practice that involves no physical movement, simply resting and listening. It is a gentle, adaptive, meditative state of being that anyone can access to find healing, freedom and clarity.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

About me:

I first started practicing age 16, when I went to a local Hatha class with my mum. Since then, my practice has led me to explore many styles of yoga, including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin and Yoga Nidra lineages. After many years of on-and-off practice, I find yoga allows me to connect to myself – something I can always come back to – and offers some escapism and a moment of peace from a busy modern life.

I found Ashtanga yoga in 2010 and discovered linking breath and movement, interwoven with yoga philosophy and a set series of postures – an approach I love.

In 2019, I went to India for my TTC, studying at Sampoorna in South Goa with Sudhir Rishi, Prianca Shharma and other incredible teachers. In all honesty, I trained to deepen my own practice, but found that I really enjoyed what I learnt from a teaching perspective and wanted to share that, so here I am! I’ve been teaching in person and online since 2020.

200hr RYT Ashtanga Vinyasa through Yoga Alliance. CE14hr Chakra. Yoga Nidra (currently being mentored by Sujatha Menon / Five Seasons Yoga)

With thanks to all my teachers past and present.

Mindful Yoga with Zowie

October 13, 2016

 Fridays 10.30am – 12.30pm

Friday’s Mindful Yoga class is a longer class of two hours and an opportunity to explore ones practise and oneself deeply.

The class is open to all levels of ability but recommended for those who are interested in working slowly with a deep level of awareness.

The work in this class is very influenced by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli and the attention to breath, grounding and movements from the spine as well as mindfulness practices. Traditional philosophy of Yoga and Buddhism are woven through the classes and their relevance and relationship to our life today explored.  Connection to energy work is considered as well as more western anatomical teachings. This is an open class where there is space for discussion and experimentation.

Drop in class £12 – Concessions Available
