Spring Yoga Workshop-Mini Retreat at Calders Wharf E14 3PS

April 21st, Sunday 2.30-5.30pm

Spring is a time of new growth, of cleansing the old and bringing the new. We’ll practice some poses to help detoxify. Also, we’ll honour Mother Earth (April 22nd is World Earth Day) with gratitude, connectedness, groundiness, balance, and steadiness. The theme of Earth Day 2024 is 'Uniting for Our One Shared Home'. It will resonate with our practices, which will emphasise interconnectedness and the harmony with nature.


We'll work on body flexibility, stiffness in hips, back and shoulders moving through the special light dynamic flow then holding stretches for longer in Yin style to explore those deeper layers: physical, energetical and mental/emotional. 

It helps to open up the body and get rid of energy blocks which together with continuing stress lead to illnesses.

We'll focus on harnessing Spring elemental energy (Wood element) which is essential for nurturing our Yin energy as we transit into the spring season.

We’ll practice twists: they affect the stomach area stimulating the inner organs related to digestion and elimination which helps to detoxify. Twists are also great for the strength and flexibility of the spine. 

We’ll dip into some yoga philosophy, how they describe those practices and their relation to our lives. 

A beautiful guided Tree meditation will teach peacefulness and connectedness. 

Long relaxation - Yoga Nidra at the end takes you to the “yogic sleep” - a state of consciousness between "waking and sleeping", induced by a guided relaxation practiced in a lying position. It's a total physical and mental rest. 

Therapeutic benefits of yoga Nidra includes: a relief for stress, depression and anxiety, better sleeping patterns, the functioning of nervous and endocrine systems, cells regeneration, clarity of mind, good mood. 

Tea and chat in our Sangha (community in Sanskrit) afterwards.

It’s a treat for your body and soul. You’ll leave feeling exercised, relaxed, more balanced, peaceful and hopeful, confident and ready for new challenges.


This workshop can help you to start or come back to your yoga practice.

It will be held in the big hall at the Calders Wharf, Dockland Settlements E14 3PS. It has views to the river and Cutty Sark in Greenwich (photos above).

Also streamed live on zoom. The end on zoom - at 5ish pm or in person plus 30ish min for tea and chat.

You'll have an option to breathe natural essential oils, carefully selected according to the practice. 

Candles, Tibetan bowl and relaxing tunes also will be used to enhance the experience.

Here are some yoga mat and props, but bring your own if you can, especially a blanket and a cushion to support your practice and to stay totally comfortable throughout the relaxing part. 

Here is some feedback on the previous workshops: 

What did I "take away”: 

- The energy and warmth I felt by being together in a space with other people. 

- The confirmation of how important it is to meditate and be connected to the moment.

- How yoga has helped with my physical and mental balance and health. 

I look forward to the next workshop!” - Carmela

"The workshop was super super relaxing and refreshing. On Monday I felt really energised. I need more of this in my life!" - Sarra

“...It was like a retreat, a chance to get away from daily life and focus inwards. A treat for body and soul! The location was beautiful, the space ideal, and I loved the chance to meet other people over a cup of herbal tea afterwards…” - Jackie

"Perfect workshop that made me to slow down and recharge." - Ausra Lu

"What I took away is that I really enjoyed yoga and would like to do it again! Also, learned that yoga isn’t just about strengthening the body, it’s also about strengthening the mind!" - Dana 

"The workshop was just the thing to take a little time-out from life and think about how you and your body are getting along together" - David

Here is an online experience:

"I absolutely loved the whole thing! I found holding the poses, so deeply nourishing and relaxing. I found your explanations and information sharing very informative." - Sarah

"Your workshop was lovely and very relaxing! The way you structured the workshop was brilliant and each section flowed seamlessly into the next... 

I was surprised that the two hours seemed to go by so quickly. I found the longer stretches very useful and the end relaxation was so relaxing I nearly fell asleep 

I’d definitely be up for another workshop and joining online did work well for me.” - Zoë
