  • Friday 20th December 2019, 12.00-1.00pm - Gong Bath with David Little

    Take a break from the Christmas preparations with an hour long gong bath followed by tea and mince pies.

    A gong bath - also known as a sound bath or gong meditation - offers you the opportunity to relax and revitalise as you listen to the playing of a gong. Little effort is required – all you need to do is lie comfortably on a mat or sit in a chair and listen to and feel the sound.

    This will be an opportunity to destress and relax. In the session we’ll also focus on developing our feelings of compassion for ourselves and others.

    Please note that gong baths are not recommended for women in their first trimester of pregnancy, those with a pacemaker or anyone with epilepsy.

    Cost: £7 per person drop-in.

An opportunity, once a month, for us to enjoy delving deeply into the wisdom and philosophy of yoga.

  • Saturday 25th January 2020, 10.30-4.30pm - Winter Warmer day-long yoga retreat with Krista Wills and Sophie Tsavalos

    The darker days and colder nights of winter can leave us feeling a little sluggish and unmotivated both mentally and physically. The temptation to stay indoors and curl up under the warmth of a blanket can be too much!. Instead of moving our bodies we become stagnant, which disturbs our natural flow of energy trapping tension, stress and negativity within.

    This mini retreat aims to cultivate the warmth we seek from the inside out and restore a healthy energy flow; allowing the release of tension & stress whether mental or physical, through asana (Yoga postures), pranayama (breath work) & meditation.

    The day will begin with a heat building, energetic practice before lunch, followed by an optional mindful walk within the beautiful grounds of the Park. The second part of the day will gradually wind down to a calming restorative practice and finish with deep relaxation & Yoga Nidra.

    Cost: £60 (includes lunch)

    Slings Myofascial Training is a contemporary, multidimensional and research-informed training approach. It implements fascia-focussed, body-minded movement training on the mat.

The contrasting movement sequences contain dynamic and rhythmical, as well as soft and melting exercises. This integral mat-based class is enhanced with the use of soft massage balls.

    The method is based on new findings in fascia research and movement science. Furthermore, Slings implies the Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept which portrays the body-wide interconnectedness of muscles and fascia in myo-fascial slings (short “Slings”).

    Principles and exercises are compatible with a broad variety of movement modalities, including Pilates and Yoga. The sense of well-being and freedom after a Slings class is priceless!

  • Saturday 19th October 2019, 2.30-5.00pm - ‘Connecting with the Spine – Part 2’ with Emma Lewis

    The spine; an amazing, complex, intricate structure central to all movement and vital functions of the body. So fantastic in architecture and function but so often compressed and worn down with modern day living.

    This interactive workshop will build on key themes from the first workshop but with greater focus and detail on:
    a) The breath and it's intimate relationship with spinal posture, the nervous system and stability muscles.
    b) Fascia and key considerations when moving.
    c) Other body parts (principally feet and hands) and their influence on spinal movement.

    We will recap some of the key learning points from workshop 1 so attendance of workshop 1 is not a pre-requisite for coming to workshop 2. These workshops are aimed at increasing awareness of how the spine moves and for you to be more attuned and confident in moving in a safe and intelligent way. They are not specifically designed for people with back pain or dysfunction but those with injuries are more than welcome; I will just ask we communicate about your needs prior to the session. It will be a small group and involve a mix of discussion and practice so it can be as interactive as possible.

  • Wednesdays from 25th September 2019, 6.15-7.00pm - Teen Yoga a 6-week course with Claire Saunders

    Teens today are under much more pressure than ever before, from academic worries to fitting in on social media.   Practicing yoga can provide valuable support at this time.  

    Yoga is more than a physical exercise, and whilst it can help teens deal with their growing bodies and the changes of adolescence, reduce injury and improve posture (those school bags!), its true gift is to help Teens to develop an invaluable sense of self, improve confidence and focus, and help them to deal with the minefield of social media.    In a Teen Yoga class, we create a space of acceptance and community, where we practice poses, breath work and relaxation. 

    This summer, one of the most experienced teachers of adults and children, Claire, and her daughter Livi spent a week studying in depth how to bring yoga to teenagers, and they have been inspired to bring you this class together.  Claire and Livi are dedicated to creating space for magic to happen, for students to express themselves in a place of acceptance and support.  

    This course will run for 6 weeks from 25 September - 6 November, 6.15-7pm.  £40 for 6 weeks.  Suitable for years 7-11 at secondary school. Head to www.yogabright.info to book your space or contact Claire on 07881 524900

    Full Lips the Podcast x Life in Still Life invite queer black men to enjoy a morning of utter relaxation.

    Set in the unspoilt grounds of a Beckenham Place Mansion, we’ve come together to create the perfect sanctuary for queer black men to detoxify their mind, body and spirit through the practices of yoga and still life drawing.

    The morning will start with a silent walk through the park bringing you closer to nature. The silent walk sets the tone of the event as each step will bring your body closer to a state of calm. Shortly after you will be taken into the mansion for a one hour yoga class where your instructor Gerrard Martin will guide you through a series of movements and postures to help you release and renew. The class is suitable for everyone, including beginners.

    The day will close with a still life drawing class hosted by Life In Still Life Drawing. Listening to the soothing sounds of neo soul and jazz, you will have the opportunity to draw a queer black male model amongst various props such as plants, ornaments and fruit.

    This is a special opportunity for queer black men to understand the true essence and vitality of self-care and wellness that will nourish you on all levels. It’s the perfect day to unwind and be free without any judgement.

    We have taken special care to ensure that those holding the workshops are black queer men or LGBTQ friendly and we can’t wait to welcome you!

    *Yoga mats and light refreshments will be provided on the day*
