Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The term yoga nidra is derived from two Sanskrit words, yoga meaning union or one-pointed awareness, and nidra which means sleep. During the practice of yoga nidra, you appear to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. For this reason, yoga nidra is often referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation with inner awareness.  In this threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions occurs spontaneously.

In yoga nidra, the state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences. If the consciousness can be separated from external awareness and from sleep, it becomes very powerful and can be applied in many ways, for example, to develop the memory, increase knowledge and creativity. Sessions are also accompanied by the beautiful and healing sounds of Himalayan Singing Bowls and Koshi Chimes which further enhance your relaxation and healing experience.

Join me in the beautiful Yoga Tree Studio for a monthly guided conscious relaxation experience by candlelight.

NB: all props such as mat, blanket/s, cushions, bolsters, eye pillows must be brought to practice as no equipment will be supplied.

Complete Yoga Practice * Brunch * Collective. 
The ever so popular Yoga Brunch is back!

Sundays can not get any better than this. In the month of December I am combining Yoga Practice with brunching in the Acorn Cafe (below the studio).

This practice is intended to create a space for you to simply be and explore the connection of the breath, mind, heart and soul through the way of body moves. Spacious but targeted sequencing will give you time to see what is possible in your mind and body right now and move from there...

There will be opportunities to challenge yourself (physically and mentally) and to learn to rest in the inner landscape of your being through deep relaxation, pranayama ( control of the breath) and meditation.

After the Yoga part, Sophie will serve us a two-course brunch with a full tea & coffee menu.

A beautiful opportunity to get together, share this space and presence with each other.

Schedule for the morning:
9-10.45a.m - Complete Yoga Practice
10.45-11a.m - Mini Break
11-12p.m - Brunch

Yoga practice is open to all levels. Ivana will be taking pre-order and dietary requirements (GF, V all available) upon your booking.

Please email Ivana with any further enquiries, to see the menu and to book your space: contact@yogawithivana.co.uk

Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice of longer-held passive poses that enhance and renew the body's vital energy, ease joint-rigidity, immobility, and nourish the body at the whole level.

Yin aids with digestion, muscle repair, organ detoxification and emotional processing. The gentle, supported postures allow the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, joints, and fascia) to strengthen, and with a consistent practice over 6 weeks, you will notice postural improvement, increased ease of movement and overall balance of mind & body.

This is perfect complementary practice to a more active Yang practice and busy lifestyles we live in. 
Practices will be accompanied with the Pranayama (breath work) to soothe the nervous system and purify and energize the subtle body. 

No previous Yoga experience is necessary and complete beginners are welcome. Appropriate for all ages and levels.

Think cosy and warm, calm and candlelight. Think solace at the Solstice and this is what you'll get in this soothing and nurturing Restorative Yogasana, Yoga Nada & Yoga Nidra practice, 3 days before the Winter Solstice.

Take time out before Christmas to rest and restore your body at what can be a busy time of the year. We will be taking it slow in this practice, starting with connection to breath and then allowing ourselves plenty of time to settle fully into Restorative Yoga Postures; using bolsters, blocks, bricks and blankets to fully support ourselves as we sink into a deep state of rest. Holding the supported postures for between 5-10 minutes, you will be accompanied by the sounds of Himalayan Singing Bowls, Shruti Box, Chimes, Rain-shaker and poetry, which will all allow your mind and body the opportunity to soften and yield into a state of deepest relaxation, re-setting and restoring yourself to meet the longer and brighter days to come.

You will finish your practice with a guided Winter Solstice Yoga Nidra and Meditation, accompanied by the sounds of the instruments and my voice, to welcome the Return of the Light in preparation for the shortest day of the year.

Led by: Marie

When: 4th Friday of each month
Next session: Fri, 28 Jan
Time: 18:00-19:15

Cost: £10. Book here: www.mariewilliamsyoga.com

A monthly class that will take us on a journey of reflection, restoration and energetic realignment through the practice of Yin. These classes will plant subtle seeds of inquiry that lead you to realign with your own personal values and intentions, as well as holding space to restore your energy before the new month ahead.

Yin Yoga is a functional practice that targets the bones, joints, fascia and other connective tissues to optimise their health and optimise range of motion and flexibility. Marie's approach to Yin Yoga comes hand-in-hand with thoughts for reflection and breathwork to regulate the nervous system. Marie believes that in creating an environment to support and nourish the nervous system, there is trust in the release of deep-rooted tension in the physical, emotional and energetic body. These approaches will be supported by Marie's current studies in the field of Yoga Therapy.

Yin Yoga is a floor-based practice of long-held Yin poses that use the support of props to discover the individual's own physical edge of depth. Marie's classes are sequenced to take your body through its various range of motions, in order to optimise the overall function of the joints and health of the tissues. This class is suitable for all levels. No previous yoga experience required as it moves at a slow practice with modifications to suit everyone.

Please Note: Yin yoga typically supports the physical body with the use of props. Therefore, if you are attending the yoga studio, due to current COVID-19 guidelines props will not be provided. Please bring your own selection of props to support the comfort of your practice.
Suggested props: a blanket, blocks, cushions, a bolster
It is not essential to have all props listed and if you are unable to bring props, variations will be offered to support your practice.

Jaime C.Lam Open Yoga Alliance Professionals, UK in new tab
Jaime was first introduced to yoga in 2012 as a form of work-life balance in modern day's hustle culture. Soon after, Jaime discovered yoga's special ability to connect the mind to the body and has been hooked ever since! Her own yoga practice consists of hatha and vinyasa yoga whilst incorporating iyengar yoga from time to time as well. Jaime completed her yoga teacher training (Yoga Alliance) in Thailand in 2019 and continued her journey as a yoga student and teacher since then. She now teaches vinyasa classes - her love for vinyasa yoga stems from its perfect reflection of life - respecting and acknowledging the impermanent nature of the world: we enter an asana, we are there for a while, and we eventually leave and enter another.

Jaime's classes are suitable for all levels, encouraging all to respect their bodies. Her classes always start with a  breathing exercise to help students focus their minds and to set an intention for their practice. Jaime likes to pay attention to the need of every individual student in her class. Students will complete their practice feeling powerful, grounded, thankful (to their own minds and bodies!) and safe.

Lee Jenkins Open Rolfing UK in new tab
Lee's fascination and relentless passion for movement & bodies has led him to work alongside a diverse range of people from all walks of life.

Whilst training and practicing Rolfing® Lee found his speciality in Rolfing Movement. This inspired him to continue training, this time in Munich over the space of a year with the European Rolfing Association. He graduated as a certified Rolf® movement practitioner in 2016.

Rolfing® is a highly effective method of working with people and their bodies. Involving hands on tissue work, looking at where we are, how we move and exploring movement re-education.
Working towards undoing, letting go and changing old patterns. Developing self-awareness and improving well being when there is tension, pain, loss of flexibility or mobility.

Open The Yoga Garden in new tab
Liz has been practising yoga for almost a decade and teaching for a quarter of that time. Coming from a non-athletic background, yoga acted as her gateway into a lifetime love of movement. She is fascinated by the human body, as well as the mind and how closely the two relate. A self-proclaimed movement explorer, her aim is to inspire this same sense of wonder and curiosity in her students.

Liz teaches movement practices that offer body-mind awareness and inspire creativity. She originally trained with The Yoga Garden, immersing herself in a 200 hour, 8 month long training alongside work, and has spent the past year training with Raphan Kebe of Space & Flow. Her Vinyasa-based yoga classes explore non-linear, fluid movements and relationships with the ground, the spine and the breath. They are a space to play and experiment, to get things wrong, to unravel movement puzzles, to become a better mover and to find joy in the practice. Also included: playlists with feeling. 

Liz is also available for private sessions, bespoke events, corporate classes.

Marie Williams Open Trìmurtì Yoga in new tab
Marie, all the way from the North of Scotland originally, has been here in Norwich sharing yoga with us at The Yoga Tree since 2019. She teaches group yoga classes and she also offers tailored 1-1 sessions for clients and is passionate about supporting people on their individual path.

Marie originally trained in India (200 hours) and has since trained in many other disciples of yoga, allowing her to discover her passion for teaching Vinyasa and Yin. "My classes are about reconnecting with your body and tending to your nervous system." In her classes Marie combines the elements of movement, stillness, breath and self-reflection.

Her love for the fluid and free form of Vinyasa she teaches stems from her background in Contemporary Theatre and her passion to explore emotion through movement. Her approach is dynamic and creative and she enjoys exploring new ways for the body to move with creative sequences.

Her love for Yin stems from learning herself the need to slow down and tend to her nervous system and she is passionate about this in her approach. Her classes create an environment for people to balance their busy, fast-paced, demanding lives and an opportunity to learn how to better care for their own nervous systems, supporting the release of physical and mental tension. 

Marie's passion to support people's physical and mental health and their relationship with body, breath and mind, has led her towards training as a Yoga Therapist. Marie hopes to work with people in order to reduce or manage suffering and promote health and wellbeing through the application of the principles and practices of Yoga.

Richard Woodall Open Power Living in new tab
Teaching all over the world for nearly 4 years now, Yoga for Rich is all about union and non-duality

He got into the practice when he realised that his body and his mind were often in different places, as much as his thoughts and his feelings of happiness were too.

Yoga philosophy gave Rich the space to live in a more truthful way, in union with his beliefs and ideas of life and existence. Also with more peace and acceptance of self. Living by the heart became a daily practice as well as grounding and finding space, physically and emotionally.

His Vinyasa classes are both dynamic and relaxing. He introduces a modern approach to yoga whilst fully embracing tradition and its beautiful philosophy.

The Yin classes are super super chilled; deep longer-hold postures all on the floor, laying or sitting down. Always taught, from the heart, with beautiful music and philosophical topics.

 He's a true believer that yoga is for everyone. We just have to give it a try!
When he's not teaching, he's usually writing, playing the guitar and having a sing song, or finding a beach somewhere to be near the water.

Open Future Fit Training in new tab
Rosie had a fitness mentor who inspired and encouraged her to train with the Future Fit School of Pilates.

Having suffered with a creaky back for years, she found that Pilates strengthened her back and core like no other sport she had tried. She has been delighted with the progress some of her clients have made, in short periods of time, with their balance, posture, core strength, body awareness and confidence.

She likes to fly in the face of convention and try new things and would encourage everyone to try Pilates as their new thing as the benefits are clear soon after starting.

Her classes are inclusive, mixed ability, gentle but concentrated exercise. For the gardeners, the carers, those with sore backs, knees, hips, shoulders... you get the idea!
