What have you heard about Yoga? 

That it helps with physical needs? 
It fulfils the wish for a healthier, more flexible and stronger body? 
Maybe that it helps the mental state? That it can help reduce stress, tension, and also symptoms of depression? 
Or that is about spiritual growth? That it encourages a thirst for knowledge about the Self, leading to a sense of fulfilment?

The truth and beauty of Yoga is that it combines all the above to create a holistic experience.

Working on the physical, mental and emotional level, we acquire tools to develop deep peace and awareness in our lives.

Andy and Einat’s yoga is mindful, physical, flowing, subtle and meditative. Sessions combine conscious, dynamic movement with breath work, ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy, relaxation and meditation. 

Shiatsu

Shiatsu uses stretches, joint mobilisation, acupressure and holding to bring the body into a state of deep relaxation and support and balance vital life-force energy. In this space the body is able to better balance and heal itself.

A workshop session will give you the opportunity to learn and practice simple techniques in this powerful bodywork.

Andy Butterfield

Andy has journeyed through various styles of yoga and folds elements of these, along with his shiatsu bodywork experience into a mindful flow practice.   

Breath is central in Andy’s offering. He teaches that it is the most powerful tool to nourish, enliven and restore. In class, we are repeatedly invited back to its flow and its fullness. And so we come to dwell in the present moment and begin to understand that in this space, we receive everything we need, effortlessly. As we move and open and stretch our bodies, breath and energy (prana) expand to fill the new spaces opening up. 

Sometimes his classes focus on the creation of space, and other times, we work hard with strengthening and empowering practices to burn off what isn’t serving us and feel the joy in offering more than we thought we could. 

Learn to inhabit your body more fully, relaxing into it with deeper compassion, appreciation and contentment.
