Spanda and Soma. 50 Hr Immersive Training Retreat, Formentera
Sep
22
to Sep 27

Spanda and Soma. 50 Hr Immersive Training Retreat, Formentera

Formentera is a special kind of sanctuary. 

Accessible only by boat, this unspoiled and unchanging utopia is the perfect environment for an immersive experience. 

Our villa is tucked away, amidst the swaves of pine, juniper and fig covered countryside all protected as part of a World Heritage site. We are a stones throw from the 8km long Migjorn coastline; a succession of coves and beaches separated by rocky outcrops, each with its own distinctive character and appeal. The Ses Salines Natural Park protects the beds of Posidonia seagrass, one of the most ancient organisms still living today, that filter the water offshore leaving it crystalline and a pure beautiful blue.

And perhaps, most special to us, it was on Formentera that Chris completed writing the Yomala, Yoga & Vinyasa Therapeutics 200hr training over 6 years ago. It only seemed fit then, that our first immersion training experience should be led here on this magical island where it all began!


The Training

At the core of our asana practice is the spinal column; reflexive, unique. Interwoven with the deepest levels of our systems functioning and inseparable from the rhythmic pulse of the breath.

This module will focus on advanced exploration of the spine and lumbosacral complex; their anatomy and function as structures that both stabilise and drive movement and momentum and how a deeper understanding of the mechanics of the bandha as physical and energetic constructs can drive liberation in our practice.

Our study of the physical spine, will be complemented by a deep focus on the energetical axial column, or sushumna, and the primal energy centres that lay along it (Bindu). Somatic and subtle energy pranayama and meditation techniques will accompany daily space for reflection, introspection and sharing.




Accomodation

A traditional Formentera style house peacefully located in a pine wood setting just 100 metres from Migjorn beach. Air conditioned. Swimming Pool.

New Classes... and New Teachers!
Feb

7:00 PM19:00

New Classes... and New Teachers!

Align & Flow, Sundays 6.30 - 7.30 pm at the Mala, Gosforth

Guided Meditation, Sundays 7.45 - 8.25pm at the Mala, Gosforth.


We are delighted to introduce a new teacher to our Yoga therapies team, Jordan Middlemist.

Jordan was in the British Parachute Regiment for 6 years, travelling all over the world before deciding to train in Rishikesh as a yoga teacher. With personal insight into the effects of anxiety and depression Jordan is now in a perfect place to share his experience of how yoga and meditation practice has helped him and can help others too.

Jordan is also a keen runner, competing for Wallsend Harriers, and has found that his yoga practice complements his running by creating a strong body, clear mind and focus.  


Jordan’s yoga classes are aimed at helping the body recover after vigorous exercise during his asana classes and clear the mind in his meditation classes. These classes will be ideal for those who have busy lives during the week and need to stretch and relax in time for the week ahead.

The Breathing Body
Feb
23
to Feb 24

The Breathing Body

  • The YogaTherapies Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Explore practices of breath rehabilitation, alongside somatic meditation and deepening pranayama practice.

This 10 hour deep dive can be taken as standalone CPD, or as contribution towards the 100hr Yoga Therapeutics advanced training.

Over two days of immersive practice and theory we will explore;

  • the anatomy and physiology of breath;

  • interaction of breathing and spinal mechanics;

  • the subtle breath; vayu & nadi;

  • the 5 layers of self;

  • practices for rehabilitating the breath;

  • practices for deepening pranayama;

  • breath led and somatic meditations;

  • mudra practice for restoration and integration of the energy body.

The importance of breathing need hardly be stressed. It provides the oxygen for the metabolic processes; literally it supports the fires of life. But breath as “pneuma” is also the spirit or soul. We live in an ocean of air like fish in a body of water. By our breathing we are attuned to our atmosphere. If we inhibit our breathing we isolate ourselves from the medium in which we exist. In all Oriental and mystic philosophies, the breath holds the secret to the highest bliss. That is why breathing is the dominant factor in the practice of Yoga.”
— Alexander Lowen, "The Voice of the Body"

Meditation with Sherab Starts at the Den.
Feb
5
1:10 PM13:10

Meditation with Sherab Starts at the Den.

Lunchtime meditations are our opportunity to rest and reflect, to take time out and reset.

The meditations are guided by a Kadampa Buddhist monk who has been practising Buddhist meditation for 20 years and who has dedicated his life to teach the people of the North East at Compassion Kadampa Buddhist Centre in South Gosforth.

Modern Buddhism is the practice of integrating wisdom and mediation into our busy lives in this modern world. The recognition that our happiness depends upon our mind and not on our external conditions liberates us from daily suffering and frustration.

Everybody is welcome.

Anyone can learn to train their mind and there is no need to be physically fit to do this.

Sessions are run simply, with meditations performed either sat in a chair or on a floor cushion for the half hour session.


The Compassion Centre is run on donations. These sessions require no booking and a suggested donation of £3 is requested by the Compassion Centre for this class - £1 of this donation will go towards covering the costs associated with using the Den.

New Year Yoga Mala, Deha Shuddhi & Fire Ceremony
Dec
30
12:00 PM12:00

New Year Yoga Mala, Deha Shuddhi & Fire Ceremony

Yoga Mala (the practice of 108 sun salutations) is traditionally undertaken at times of progression, and of change.

This New Year event has become a very special day in the calendar for us at YT, and we are looking forward to its continuing evolution and sharing this powerful experience with you again. 

Each salutation represents one of the 108 stages on the journey of the evolution of the human soul, and as such represent both the journey we have already taken, and the new adventure waiting for us in the new year.

The day will begin with a guided meditation process, celebrating the past year, but also working with the elements we are ready to leave behind, and the new energies we all looking to manifest in the coming year before moving into the Mala itself, and the physical experience of redesigning our energy.  To close the practice we will have an indoor fire Ceremony, to commit our intentions and our wishes to the universe.

PAYG £30
