Part 1
10:00 - 12:00

Building from the foundation, working in small groups, finding our balance and strength, growing in confidence and ability, moving into 'washing machines', will we manage a 'pop' or a 'hand to hand'?, let's wait and see....

Lunch for all (Vegetarian)

Part 2
13:30 - 15:30

Going over briefly some of the 'tricks' from Part 1, and looking at what we can work towards before Neilon's next visit! - For the most of this section, we'll be seeing how AcroYoga can be 'therapeutic' as opposed to the 'Dynamic' nature we'll have covered in the morning, finishing with the teachings of Thai Massage, a gift you can take away and practice.

- If you're looking for further discount, choose the 'bring a friend to both parts' option when booking and this reduces the cost to only £35 each! (£70 for 2)

- Quite often other yoga/dance studios or friends like to come in groups, message us direct for 'group discounts!'

We are so excited to welcome Neilon back! This is a truly wonderful and unique day, spending time with other yogis of mixed ability. Trusting, supporting and encouraging each other from the minute you walk through the studio doors.

Ticket for one - £40
Ticket for two - £70

After the success of our 2016 Retreat and searching venues throughout Europe last year, trying to find somewhere that ticks all the boxes, we believe we found it and we are so glad to be able to offer you the opportunity of another yoga experience. Escaping to a peaceful and Idyllic location in the Algarve

Aerial Yoga Edinburgh & Our World Yoga have come together to offer you this fabulous 4 night 'Yoga Experience'.

We have searched venues throughout Europe trying to find somewhere that ticks all the boxes, we now believe we've found it! Escape to the peaceful and idyllic location of Monte Mariposa in the warmth of the Algarve, Portugal.

This retreat is quite unique, in that we are offering over 4hrs of physical Yoga Asana per day as well as daily led Meditation and Yoga Nidra. There are 2 studios for your use, which means we can offer both 'Aerial Yoga' Classes (all levels & restorative) and 'Mat' based (yin, restorative and vinyasa flow). You can do as much or as little as you like...

Included are 3 delicious, healthy freshly cooked vegetarian meals a day with tea's and water. The focus on this retreat is for you to come back feeling happy, healthy and rejuvenated, therefore no alcohol permitted.

Also included is the use of the swimming pool and sweat lodge, yoga mats (however we do recommend you bring your own) and towels. On the premises is a treatment/massage room where a whole range of holistic therapies are offered, this is organised locally at an additional charge.

We will be organising an optional excursion, 'the yoga beach trip', where we will practice and play (yoga games & some partner/group yoga). At this time of year the sea is generally still averaging 70 degrees, perfect for a dip! This year we will be offering a further excursion of 'Paddle Boarding' if you are feeling adventurous and have a good sense of humour! If this isn't for you, the option is to spend a few hours exploring the harbour town of Tavira or spending the afternoon sunbathing in a hammock or by the pool at the retreat.

Transfers can be organised - to be arranged closer to the time with retreat owners (small diesel charge TBC nearer the time).

Flights/Travel insurance/Paddle Boarding excursion/Massages are not included in the retreat price.

£100 deposit is required to confirm your space. This can be arranged by bank transfer or going online to the 18th September 2017

Aerial Yoga for beginners with Val

Sunday, 8 October

£15
Buy!
A wonderful introduction to the world of Aerial Yoga or a great way to brush up on technique.
Using our giant luxurious hammocks to warm up, supporting the body, increase your flexibility gently and mindfully while building core and upper body strength. When ready moving into therapeutic and fun inversions using as much resistance and support as you need, always knowing that the hammock is there.
Finishing with arguably one of the most amazing ways to relax, cocooned airborne in your own world, inside the hammock. In daytime the sun shines gently through the sky lights, sometimes you can listen to the pitter, patter of raindrops or if you're lucky to join in an evening class you may even see the night stars!

DONATION DAY for Nkhalango Primary School in Malawi

29 October
Morning till Night
Donation
Buy!

As a yoga studio and yoga community we have agreed to sponsor Nkhalanga Primary School, our vision is, we would like to feed all 679 children for a whole year.
For most of these children, the only meals they will receive are at school. This is not only encouragement for the children to be educated and positive steps for the future of these children and their communities, but for now, the children say, not only does this help them to concentrate but it gives them energy to play and have fun.
For the lucky children of Malawi, the morning and chance to go to school brings hope. Countless of these children are orphans, having lost parents to HIV and other devastating illnesses. Being alone makes an already harsh reality even more difficult. With no one to provide them with love and support, these children fend for themselves. While at school , in the morning the children will receive porridge and at lunchtime, the children receive another meal of maize, relish and beans, cooked by some amazing volunteers.

So far we have raised over £400 through our Summer Solstice event, our target is £9439.00. I know, its a huge amount, but with all the events we plan to do over the year, it may just be possible.

“Great things are done, by a series of small things brought together.”! – Vincent Van Gogh

Luckily, we have a wonderful small (but big hearted team), here at the Studio, who are all willing to give up their time for this cause.

The Itinerary so far for the day:
10:00 – 11:15 Ashtanga with Heather Burns
11.30 – 12:30 TRX with Lee
13:00 – 14:15 Forrest Yoga with Katie Boyle
14:30 – 15:45 Aerial Yoga with Val
17:00 – 18:30 Yin Yoga with Val
18:45 – 20:00 ‘Pamper Special’ with our in house Masseuse, Gill Agnew.
What a perfect way to end the day!

More classes may be added nearer the time, we’ll keep you posted on our Facebook Event!

TRX/Suspension Training Workshop with Lee

Saturday, 25 November
10:00-11:30
£20
Buy!
Suspension training engages the whole body. The instability that the suspension system creates while you perform movements means that your core is constantly activated. The functional movements mean that many muscles are worked at the same time, providing a very comprehensive, all over body workout.
Lee is one of Glasgow's most sought after personal trainers. His knowledge of anatomy and years of experience on how to utilise exercise programmes to get the results you desire, as well as his friendly approachable character is what draws people to him.
He will work through the muscle groups that are being targeted and will be ready and open for lots of questions and answers.
