Yoga Workshop with Ellen Lee – Yamas and Niyamas, on and off the mat
Saturday Feb 23, 2-5.30pm
Evergreen Centre – Letchworth
The Yamas and Niyamas are a suggested code of conduct, a model for looking at the behaviour of self and others, that come from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras (one of the classical texts of yoga philosophy).
This workshop will look at the model that Patanjali offers; seeing how it comes into practice on the mat, and how we can use it off the mat. We will also ask whether this model is still relevant to our modern society.
The workshop will include a physical yoga practice as well as time to sit and discuss our thoughts, feelings and experiences.
Ellen Lee is current Chair of the Independent Yoga Network. She has been teaching yoga for more than 26 years in a huge variety of settings.
Price: my weekly students £25 (in advance), others £28 (in advance) £35 on the day.

Yoga Workshop - Developing a Home Practice
Saturday March 16 2-5.30pm
Evergreen Centre – Letchworth
Spring is a great time to start new activities or projects. Our energy is rising after the Winter hibernation and we are ready to embrace something new or maybe tweak something old!
Would you like to practice yoga at home but don’t know where to start? This workshop is for you!
We'll look at:
Reasons to have a practice of your own...
What might be stopping us...
How we can create a simple practice that works for us - and will keep us coming back to our mats.
The focus in this workshop will be on listening to what we as individuals need in our practice rather than on following "set" routines, although we will consider those also.
The workshop will include a Spring yoga practice as well as time to feel, think about and discuss relevant issues arising from our subject.

Yoga Retreat 2019
Tuesday 21 – Thursday 23 May
Dower House, Hexton, Herts
Join me for 2 days of yoga, meditation, good food, companionship, peace and quiet. Time to wind down and re-energise. Time to just “be”.
You’ll get to delve deep in to your practice – experiencing a balance of the dynamic and energising with the restorative and meditative. There will be plenty of free time to relax inside the house, or outside. There are also countryside walks nearby.
Our venue, the Dower House, is a large but homely Manor house, set in its own beautiful gardens in the pretty village of Hexton. We will have exclusive use of the house and grounds during our stay. There is a spacious and light room in which to practice yoga, and 10 large bedrooms over 2 floors. The bedrooms share 5 bathrooms.
The food provided is vegan; delicious, nourishing and plentiful.
All-inclusive price includes accommodation, yoga practice and discussion groups, food (from dinner Tuesday to lunch Thursday), unlimited drinks.
Spaces are limited to 12 people.
“The fruition of a committed yoga practice is the capacity to deeply relax the inner struggle with life’s paradoxes. Someone who is steeped in yoga is better able to tolerate the extremes of heat or cold, agility or immobility, sadness or joy, free from psychological confusion, resistance, or struggle”.
