💦🐡New Moon in Pisces🐡💦

This was exact at 10.21am UK time this morning.

This new moon is ethereal and otherworldly, Pisces wants you to explore and go beyond past limits of your imagination, visiting new unseen realms within your psyche. Pay attention to your dreams. This is a great time to submerge yourself in any creative form of expression, painting, dancing, writing… whatever gets you ‘in the flow’ – watery Pisces is asking you to feel, letting go of mind restrictions.

I am feeling this Piscean energy strongly as I am writing this up in The Glass House, listening to the persistent rain tapping on the glass roof this morning.

These are a few ideas for you to try today and the next few days:

🐠 Pranayama: there are certain pranayama techniques which help calming the nervous system, mostly by lengthening the exhale and using breath retentions (holding your breath).

🐠 Meditation: make use of this natural watery soundscape and meditate for a few minutes. Burn some sage/ palo santo to clear the space or use any essential oils to help you be calm and focused, such as lavender and clary sage.

🐠 Journaling: free-writing, unedited flow – just a few pages in the morning. Don’t worry if it looks messy, just let the process happen without focusing in the outcome.

🐠 Painting / drawing: get the colours out and paint your feelings! I love this one 😉 Notice if you feel happy, sad, angry,… then notice where in your body do you feel this feeling… what colour is it? Separate the story from the feeling… painting the feeling will help you process it and letting it go if you need to.

🐠 Yoga Nidra: this ancient practice will help you release and relax, opening that portal to the subconscious, allowing you to open up to other realms… If you’d like a link to this Wednesday’s Yoga Nidra recording so you can practice the next few nights send me a PM.

🐠 Dance / body movement – another favourite of mine 😂 Allow your body to move without restrictions! Music / no music. Dance to the sound of rain. Big movements, small movements, let your body go and do its thing…!

I hope you enjoy these next few days and you get time to try some of these, let us know how it felt in the comments below👇🏽

New classes, new space – all change, all change!

Dear yogis and yoginis,

We have now settled at The Glass House, so I thought I will show you some pictures of yogini Tiger after her practice… she is definitely feeling the zen vibes and loving it!

It has been an intense move and process – still ongoing as we adjust to the new space. We discover new things with every class! The last discovery was the many uses of a reflective ceiling when laying down and doing our warm ups, it’s great!

This week we are introducing new classes:

Early morning Pranayama and Meditation:
Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 8am

A half hour session, just before rush hour, to start the day grounded and clear minded.

Pranayama  is the fourth limb of yoga. It’s a Sanskrit term meaning  ‘extension of the life force’. The word is composed of two Sanskrit words, Prāna meaning life force and āyāma, meaning to extend, draw out, restrain, or control. Prāna (life force) is carried by our breath, therefore by ‘controlling’ our breath we are able to adjust our life force. Different Pranayama techniques are used for different effects, some calming, some energising, some balancing. The benefits of Pranayama are too many to list here!

Dhyana (Meditation) is the 7th limb of yoga. In meditation we aim to retreat from our thoughts, calming our ‘monkey mind’. By shifting our attention away from our thoughts we are able to calm our nervous system and allow our intuition to flourish. Nurturing this practice will not only dramatically increase your wellbeing, but also open the door to your ‘inner knowing’ and help develop a strong feeling of contentment and acceptance of whatever life brings.

Open Level Community Yoga:
Wednesdays @10am

A more affordable class for those in concessions (students, OAPs, low waged).

Complete Beginners Yoga course:
Saturdays @9.45am

Our popular Complete Beginners Yoga course starts on Saturday November 2nd and runs for 5 weeks.

This course will be covering the basics in yoga in a friendly, down to earth environment. By the time you complete this course you should feel confident to move onto the Level 1 or Open Level classes with a clear understanding of the basic foundations in Yoga.
It is sometimes great to revisit these foundations even if you have been practising for a while, so if you feel like doing so you are welcome to join us!

You can book for these or any other classes here.

I hope you all have a smashing weekend and that you can come and visit The Glass House soon.

We are moving to The Glass House!

Dear yogis and yoginis,

The Glass House studio @ 664A Holloway Road, N19 3NU

It is happening, we are moving!

From next week all classes will be held at The Glass House, 664A Holloway Road N19 3NU.
The new studio is more intimate and houses up to 6 mats, offering more of a one-to-one approach to learning. For those riding to class, there is space for a few bikes inside the building so you can keep them dry and safe during class.

We have a new booking system in place now. To see the new timetable and book classes please go here. You can book per class or purchase class packs and book in advance as many classes as you like! All classes must be booked as we cannot guarantee that there’ll be space for last minute drop-ins.

Those of you with class packs would have received an e-mail from Instabook in the last few days. Please make sure you activate your account as soon as possible as your credits have been added to the system so you are ready to book!

Over and out for now – if you have any questions feel free to get in touch!

Much 💛
