Please join us for our first 108 Sun Salutation Fundraising Event.
We have been inspired to take on this challenge by the story of a little baby warrior, Nicolás, the cousin of our lovely teacher Sarah. Nicolás was born last year with two life-debilitating conditions. The surgery to save his life costs US$250,000 and requires travel to the United States (he lives with his parents in the Dominican Republic).
We are running this event to help raise money for Nicolás’ surgery. We want to try and help as much as possible, please help us do this.
We will practise 108 Sun Salutations together. It doesn’t matter what your level or experience as there will be something for everyone to do. EVERYONE CAN JOIN IN! All the YogaVenue teachers will be involved and will be teaching in a relay style to lead you through your practise. Expect music and story-telling and laughter along the way! We hope you can join us.
Click here to sign up. Please note to secure your place a minimum donation of £25 is required (NB you can sign up online but a cash donation at the studio is required to secure your place). If you can't make the challenge you can still make a donation at the studio.
We want to raise as much money as possible to help Nicolás, he is a truly special baby, please help us do this by coming along and joining in the fun, do bring friends and family as well.

The course is spread over 20 study days as well as home study and the need to engage in a home practice if you do not have one already. We meet for 2 long weekends (3 and then 4 days each) and then an intense period of 13 days straight. We love the intense times, allowing us the time to dive in deeper and deeper in our Yoga and teaching experiences. With home study the course is over 200 hours.

Jivamukti is hip: In the eighties, Sharon Gannon and David Life, the founders of the Jivamukti Yoga method, brought Yoga into the most radical underground communities, in the East Village of New York. In doing so, they integrated the hidden and mysterious teachings of yoga into the artistic avant-garde, and made Yoga Hip, i.e. relevant for people living in a modern, urban environment. Jivamukti is spiritualized performance art, where poetry, dance, asana and music are coming together with Vedic wisdom teachings, and the audience are the actors.
Jivamukti is hot and holy; because it addresses the most burning issues of our times. The Asana practice generates inner heat, that allows practitioners to melt away old paradigms and conditioned behavior patterns that are no longer useful. When we clear these obstacles out of the way, we have an opportunity to experience what was revealed in the Shrutis (sacred texts of India), which is that essentially, we are made of pure love, pure light, and pure joy.
Backbends are an age-old recipe for letting go of muscular contractions and emotional hardening in the heart region. This unleashes the discovery of an unlimited potential for physical, emotional and spiritual freedom. Spiritual teachings will be drawn from the Jivamukti Focus of the Month.
Levels: All levels welcome, although some experience of Yoga would be beneficial. Suitable for teachers, teacher trainees and interested yogis
Places are limited, booking early is highly recommended.

Inversions do not happen overnight, they take time, practice, dedication and good technique. This workshop will meet practitioners at their current stage. For those new to inversions, we will cover the fundamentals with step by step techniques with no pressure to go further than what is comfortable. For students who are already inverting this workshop is an opportunity to explore stylish transitioning and variations.
The workshop will be strenuous in places and is therefore ideal for practitioners looking to deepen their practice in this challenging and rewarding afternoon.
Level: A regular Yoga practice recommended
All levels are welcome. If you're new to arm balances the focus will be on building your foundation. If you're already arm balances, you'll pick up some new variations and stylised transitions!
Make space to soften and room to relax. This practice will be a gentle rebalancing of body and mind through the forms of Yin yoga, pranayama and sitting meditation. We are continually given the choice between contraction and expansion, between closing and opening, between fear and love. Come along to this practice to expand, to open, to love.

Our Hot Yoga classes have been specifically designed for the hot environment to ensure that students get the most our of their practice and are healthy and safe. In this section we will cover the considerations of the hot room; including selecting the optimal heat level, health and safety issues in the hot environment, the do's and the don'ts for the hot room
Some assume that you can teach any type of Yoga class in a heated environment; our experience shows this is not the case. We will show you how to design a class that is specific to a heated environment, includes consideration of breath and asana.
As well as teaching you how to sequence your own class, we will provide you with a ready made Hot Yoga class sequence, as taught at YogaVenue. We will also cover how to teach the class and why we teach it the way we do.
Our Hot Yoga training is over 3 days, Fri - Sun, 10am - 5pm. This is a 20 hour training course.
The next course is scheduled for 1st -3rd December.
