Shakti Women’s Circle
Sunday 22nd September 7:30-9pm
with Simone and Susan
Throughout time women have come together to support and uplift each other. Menstrual Huts and Moon Lodge traditions goes back hundreds of years.
These all-women spaces were places where women of different ages and backgrounds gathered to tell stories, learn from each other and explore how the cyclical nature of a woman’s life impacts how we understand the world around us.
The Yoga Quarter Shakti Women’s Circle is new to the studio. It will be a safe space where we gather, move through a gentle yoga practice, connect as women and finish with a meditation.
The Shakti Women’s Circle is open to women of all ages and backgrounds. No previous experience of yoga necessary.
The circle will be led by Susan McEwen and Simone Hadfield. Susan has over 20 years’ experience of leading women’s groups and Simone has been leading women’s circles for the last two years.
£12 or £9.60 for members and students
Flirtatious Flow, Handstand Bootcamps and Landing Gear Restorative
With Kyle Weiger
- Friday 6-8pm Flirtatious Flow
- Saturday 10am-12pm Handstand Bootcamp – Foundations
- Saturday 1:30-3:30pm Handstand Bootcamp – Progressions
- Sunday 11:30am-1:30pm Landing Gear – Restorative Flow
LA based handstand king and all-round decent yogi Kyle will be at YQ in September teaching us how to flow, invert and restore.
“My mission is to leave every person I encounter a little light than when I found them. The courses, workshops and seminars I lead were all built with love and admiration for my fellow practitioners of yoga, movement and leadership. I am a teacher sometimes and a student always. Easy.”
Flirtatious Flow – Tap into your senses and flow around every edge of your mat, as you explore a Vinyasa-style class that incorporates dance, rhythm, pulsation, and stretching what you thought you were capable of. So get ready to cut loose and have fun!
Bootcamp #1: Foundations – The first part of bootcamp is focused on setting up your Handstand line and getting you into a confident stacked position, with and without the wall. We’ll be exploring a number of gymnastics-based drills for creating and maintaining your hollow-body shape across various planes of movement. This session is all about training your brain/body connection to recognize your line.
Bootcamp #2: Progressions – The second section of bootcamp introduces techniques for longer holds, Press progressions, and different leg positions. Handstand comes in so many shapes and sizes, so you’ll be exploring the different aspects of the position! Much like every other pose, every student wears Handstand a little different, so this session will give you tons of tools to find your strongest variation!
Landing Gear: After a weekend of rigorous flow, high-flying arm balances, and Handstands, it’s time to set you down gently. Join Kyle for this afternoon session of therapeutic deep stretching and restorative yoga so you can give your body the rest and relaxation it deserves!
