Workshops

In-person Workshops return May 2021!

A morning of gentle yet deep yoga, meditation and restful yoga nidra to reconnect you to your body, still your mind and make space.
We’re starting with a monthly event at the wonderful Milland Memorial Hall, which has lots of outside space for when the weather is kind to us and a well-ventilated village hall for when it isn’t. 
I keep numbers for these workshops intentionally low so they tend to sell out quickly.
To make sure you’re the first to hear about new dates, join my mailing list.

“What a treat for my mind, body and spirit. Helen’s attention to care is obvious throughout as she gently guides you through movement and stillness. I can’t recommend Helen enough.” – Katy

We all tend to spend most of our waking hours ‘in our heads’. When we consciously reconnect to our body, we ground ourselves, giving our minds permission to stop, to be still. We make space for our Self.

I choose intimate venues and keep numbers intentionally low to ensure that each workshop offers a tranquil, peaceful experience for all participants.

Whether you’re a regular at my yoga classes, haven’t been for ages or have never managed to attend any of them, a Make Space workshop is the perfect way to press pause on your life for a few hours, making time to breathe, to be still and to (re)connect with your Self.

It’s also a great way to spend some time with me if you’re considering working with me on a 1:1 basis to create lasting change in your life.

“Throughout the workshop … you provided an environment and platform for peace and tranquility … I was able to totally relax and feel attuned to myself … [a] sense of being held and nurtured and nourished, a true gift!” – Sheryl

All my Make Space workshops offer three hours of movement and stillness, of sound and silence, of awareness and deep, deep rest. They all include:

    • Gentle exploration of yoga asana (postures), suitable for all levels of experience and none
    • Silent sitting (meditation)
    • Deep rest through yoga nidra (aka yogic sleep)
    • High quality essential oils

In addition…

    • Make Space for stillness workshops include extra focus on breath awareness and other meditative practices (which may also include movement)
    • Make Space for movement workshops allow for a deeper exploration of specific asanas (yoga postures)

All workshops are suitable for anyone who’s interested in taking time to reconnect and make space, with or without previous yoga experience.

“Your unique way of taking each posture a step at a time helped me to almost fall effortlessly, easily and thoughtfully into the posture and really experience what that feels like.” – Daphne

Private and group workshops

In addition to my public Make Space workshops I also work with small groups of friends or colleagues to create a bespoke, retreat-style experience at a time and place of their choosing. This can be a wonderful alternative to a spa day if you are looking for a conscious, connected way to celebrate a special birthday, forthcoming wedding or other milestone.

If you would like to know more, and you believe that you have a group/location that would allow us to work within current guidelines, please contact me to discuss your requirements.
