Explore the different ways a feminine-focused yoga practice can help you soften into your authentic feminine power. These workshops may be experienced individually or as a package.

Workshop 1:  Slow Flow, Saturday 22nd September, 2.30pm - 4pm.

Discover an approach to yoga for women, by women, in this feminine flow for women of all ages and stages. Ana will lead you through a rhythmic flow of postures that nourishes your feminine soul, as well as your female reproductive system; offering joy and deep release. This class is a celebration of us as women, as mothers, as daughters, as wives, as sisters, and as girlfriends. This practice encourages you to sigh deeply, letting go of holding any hard, over-protective ‘yang energy’: softening into your deep, open and healing femininity.
