Pregnancy Yoga classes

Since we currently have not got any Pregnancy Yoga class I think its appropriate for now to let you know that Judy Cameron runs pregnancy yoga class, as advertised below:

 

The Pregnancy Yoga class is held on Wednesdays at Queens Cross church Session Room on Albyn Place from 4-6pm. The cost is £10 drop in or £36 for 4 classes – and there is also a one off £5 registration fee. People can just come along. Best time to start is any time after 14 weeks and there is no latest time. Never had anyone more than 42 weeks though!
I am also holding a Birth Preparation workshop for couples on Sunday 14th February at Kintore Public Hall from 10.30am to 4.30pm – and another on Saturday 9th April. More details can be found on my website www.yogaofbirth.co.uk  Best time to do the workshop is anytime after about 30 weeks.

Love Yoga – on the second floor!!

Happy 2016 to you all:)

May this year be a year of Peace, somewhat against the odds if I look around in the world, none-the-less. Lets practice being more at peace as human beings can…

how we do Yoga, by which I mean how aggressive or apprehensive or in whatever ‘expression’ usually relates to how we ‘do’ life. So practicing being kind to your possibly tight hamstrings in your practice will engender being more kind in the world.

Apart from that near-to philosophical stuff, Yoga is an invitation to enjoy our bodies, the breath, the mind and its focus and quietening, being rooted and trusting in our senses.

see you on the mat

Shiatsu Summer Camp in Knoydart

we are here in Knoydart with the most beautiful sunshine, which thankfully keeps the midges away:) And we have a great time exploring Shiatsu from the intuitive to the rational and back again. A magical place like Knoydart and people from Denmark, Holland, South Africa and Scotland and Norway make for a great experience. Laid back and out of normal time:)))

maybe a good place to come back to and practice Yoga here as well!!!

Mysore Guest Teacher Emma Isokivi

Emma Isokivi from Edinburgh will be our guest Teacher at Love Yoga Studio from Sunday 12th July till 24th July. She will be taking the Mysore mornings at the usual times for those two weeks as well as holding a workshop from 10-12.30pm on Sunday 12th July, which will be working with Hips and we might include some pranayama. Cost for this will be £25 and booking is are required, PLEASE book rather than just turn up.
If you are currently participating in the Mysore program at the studio I am sure you will get some new input from Emma and if you haven’t been for a while please do come along, if you feel pulled and pay only half the monthly fee for those two weeks!!! Maybe we can entice you back!!!

Solstice on Sunday and Mysore Yoga

I thought it might be a nice change for all of us doing the Mysore program on Sunday to tailor our practice so we finish at 9am. Because the Summer Solstice is a celebration of the longest and hopefully sunniest day of the year I want to chant the Gayatri Mantra for a little while after practice (we might end up with some of us chanting this whilst others finish their practices. The Gayatri Mantra is usually song in the morning to celebrate the return of the sun (light) and I like to use it and the chanting to meditate on Light in our hearts and if you feel drawn and inspired you will send love and light to someone else during the chanting.

Intro to Mysore/Ashtanga Yoga workshop 14th June

on Sunday 14th June Gills Taylor will hold the Intro to Mysore workshop from 2-4.30pm at Love Yoga (cost £25). The workshop is intended for those that think about joining the Morning Mysore program and are not sure about the form of the Primary Series or what’s required, as well as for anyone wanting to learn the beginnings of the Primary Series in order to either continue with Ashtanga evening classes at Love Yoga or elsewhere.

if you think of attending, please let us know, that would be nice:))

 

Guest Teacher for the Mysore Program

from Sunday 12th July till 24th July we will have the pleasure of welcoming Emma Isokivi from Edinburgh as our Mysore Guest Teacher.

She will be running our morning mysore program and a few extra sessions during her stay with us.  Based normally in Edinburgh, she runs the midday and evening mysore program at Meadowlark, which caters for both beginners and experienced students.  She began practicing yoga in 2006 (Bikram, Moksha, Sivananda) and a daily Ashtanga practice in 2011.  She has had the honour of studying and assisting with several senior teachers, but calls Sarah Durney Hatcher and Sharath Jois her teachers today.  As a student she is committed to practicing at ‘the source’ and returns annually to KPJAYI, the last trip returning in February 2015 after 2 months of study with Sharath Jois.  As a teacher, Emma is dedicated to encouraging students to build a daily practice that can support and enhance their daily lives.
Aside from the yoga mat- you can find Emma making printwork in her studio, rock climbing around Scotland or explore new areas on her bike!
She will start with the Sunday morning Mysore session, which will be followed by a workshop. So watch this space for more details on that one.
This stint should give us all at the studio a time to practice with someone who is practicing in line with the tradition which Sarah held so beautifully and clearly. I am sure we will all learn a few new ways of listening to ourselves, to listen within and enjoy our practice held and presented with a different flavour of energy.
