A Special Wellbeing Class for Strong and Healthy Backs

A strong and flexible back forms the basis of our health and comfort. By targeting the muscles that surround the spine this workshop will lengthen and loosen the back, strengthen the core which protects the spine and align the spine for optimal health.

Tara will lead the first section in a vinyasa style warming up the spine and opening the upper back and shoulders through chest openers. In the Awakening Deep Strength section, Charlene will guide you to switch on the deep core muscles as well as the hip stabilisers strengthening the back. In the final section, Mandy will focus on aligning your spine through nourishing twists, soft floating backbends and then finishing with restorative forward folds that will help you to understand the benefits of movement and stillness in bringing balance and health to the whole length of your spine.

When: Saturday 3rd June 10-12.30pm
Where: Cavendish Road Primary School
Price: £25/£20 concessions
To book: Contact Tara on
Payment: Bank transfer, cash at class or Paypal

Hanumanasana Workshop | 12th June 2016

The ability to do the Hanumanasana/Front Split is an incredible achievement. For those of us who did not start as teenagers or have a particular talent in this direction, it can, and often is, a never-ending journey.

Although I started yoga at a relatively early age, it was only through the discovery of techniques presented in this workshop that I am now able to do Hanumanasana in all variations on a daily basis. I am very excited to share this knowledge that will help you to also unlock this amazing physical ability” Dr Christoph Seiland

During the workshop, Christoph will guide students to explore methods outside of the field of traditional yoga practice that are allowing for the development of mobility rather than simply flexibility, which is worthless.

Therefore, movements to develop proper leg strength - building upon the postures in Wednesday’s YogaMotion class - will be included to improve the mobility of the hip flexors and hamstrings to create a safe and effective approach to front split.

The workshop is ideal for those who have some experience with yoga/movement, and is interested in developing the Front Split in a harmonious manner.

When: 11-1:30pm, 12th June 2016
Where: Moor Allerton School, Barlow Moor Road, Didsbury, M20 2PW
Price: £30

2016 Lake District Yoga Weekends

Friday 20th May - Sunday 22nd May 2016 - FULL!

Fawcett Mill Fields - Penrith

The weekend will consist of a meditation and yoga session each morning. There will be a choice of a gentle Hatha class with Leonie or a more challenging Jivamukti (yoga flow) class with Tara.

There will be an opportunity on Saturday afternoon to get out and explore the beautiful countryside on a lovely long walk, where we pass ancient stone monuments and an Andy Goldsworthy sculpture.

There will be a much-needed deep relaxation and light massage session after the walk. Throughout the weekend there will be plenty of homemade food to enjoy. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine, put your feet up and relax in the peaceful surroundings with good company.

There is also a four-person sauna for that post yoga sweat, and a couple of sitting rooms with open log fires for rest and relaxation.

February Lake District Yoga Weekend

1st Feb 2013 - 3rd Feb 2013
Fawcett Mill Fields - Penrith

"I had a wonderful weekend that was spent with equally wonderful people. The atmosphere was always relaxed, even when we were all wind-swept and soaked to the bone. Tara and Kirsten were warm and generous hosts, serving lovely, varied food. On a personal level, the weekend has reaffirmed how much yoga has enabled me to feel more 'together' on a physical and mental basis." (Charlene, Burnage)
