Ayurvedic Massage Now Available at the studio

Ayurvedic massage now available at Love Yoga on Wednesday & Thursday mornings.

Please contact Jen Stewart directly on 07504951083 for further information or to book an appointment.

2 hour treatment – £70

The massage is carried out on a mattress on the floor. It’s a full body massage that works on releasing stress & tension from the body. The massage combined with various stretches help to release emotional blocks & induce a deep state of relaxation.

Also unique to this type of  massage is the use of calamus powder which is massaged in to the body with oil. The powder combined with oil brings out toxins from the body; the scrubbing & stimulating feeling awakens the skin, blood circulation & senses, calamus is a good detoxifying & exfoliating agent for the skin.

Ayurvedic massage provides this wonderful opportunity to just relax & be, allowing yourself to still your mind & connect with your body.

After the massage it’s good to enjoy the benefit of the treatment & to have a really relaxing day planned, allow yourself to take it easy & stay in the relaxed state. Support the elimination of toxins started by the massage by drinking lots of water & eating healthy foods.

Yoga Retreat – 2 spaces available!

We’ve had 2 last minute cancellations for the Yoga Retreat this weekend which means there are now two spaces available for someone else!

We’ll be having a lovely peaceful weekend out at Corse House near Lumphanan practising yoga – both energising Ashtanga-based practices and deeply releasing and relaxing Yin-based practices, as well as mind-calming pranayama breathing techniques, some guided meditation and lots of time to chill out. There will be delicious healthy food on offer and lovely company.

New Friday Morning Class with Emma

Emma is starting a new 9.30-11am Friday morning class as of 8th November.

The class will be a Vinyasa Practice class. Vinyasa krama is the special arrangement of steps towards a desired goal. In this class the practice will be arranged to take students in steps to develop stability, stamina, focus and awareness. From January 2014, the session contents will be arranged in 10 week blocks. Regular attendance will support students to develop a personal practice and drop-ins are equally welcome.

Mastery of our material selves, and the harmony and clarity which that brings, comes from sustained and appropriate practice along with detachment or surrendering without frustration anything that could constitute an obstacle in our path.
     Yoga Sutras 1.12-13, based on a translation by Frans Moors in Liberating Isolation
We can work with our light to fill our personal reality, allowing it to shine for ourselves and for others.  We can all work towards this.
