Charity Candlelit Restorative Yoga and Meditation - donations

Donation only yoga class. Recommended £15 donation, but whatever you can spare. 

All proceeds go to the Bali Animal Welfare Association who are in desperate need of help all year but especially today during the ongoing eruption of Mount Agung. Animals and pets have been abandoned and are being rescued and saved from the ash and lava, their wounds and burns are being remedied as we speak by the amazing vets and volunteers. Please help me to help them and enjoy some yoga in the process.

In the spirit of Christmas and charity, please come and join Tipi Yoga for a very gentle, total beginner friendly 1 hour yoga and guided meditation class in Etchingham Parker Hall on Tuesday 12th December at 1:45pm. Restorative is a gentle, relaxing yoga. With the use of blankets and bolsters, restorative yoga gives you the chance to take some time out, whether relaxing aching muscles or simply unwinding after a stressful week. Restorative yoga leads to increased flexibility and strength – yet you don’t even notice it happening! During this slow practice I will guide you through an exploration of yourself, surrounded by the soft sounds of relaxing music, my voice and a Tibetan singing bowl, you will find it easy to switch off and travel within.
Leaving you energised, fresh, calm and rejuvenated for the rest of your week. 

Socks and layered clothing is recommended. Wear non-restrictive clothes, bring a mat, water bottle and maybe a healthy snack. Non slip mats for £1 hire if you need. Feel free to bring your own props: cushions, blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps if you wish - if you are going to please let me know as this means more people can join as I have limited bolsters!

Message me to reserve a space.
Limited spaces, not drop in though you may still donate if it becomes full.

Workshops 2018

Yoga Fitness for Men - £25

Wibbs will be returning to the Tipi on July 29th 2018 for the Yoga Fitness for Men class!

'As men, we all suffer from similar areas of tension that some females just don't get. We are quite often lucky to gain strength quickly, but lack in natural flexibility. We focus on our affinity with strength and then pay the price with stiffness.

This 90 minutes will look at opening the hips and shoulders whilst building core and arm strength to aid in the progression of our practice and unite and stabilise the entire body. We will warm up through some sun salutations to begin to learn how to connect our breath and movement, allowing the affected tissues to soften and lengthen mindfully, naturally and safely.

There will be some inversion/arm balance work to broaden the mind and explore outside of comfort zones and to learn to incorporate some fun new ways of using the strength we will be building on. We will use Yin techniques when working on hip flexibility to go deeper into the body and the connective tissues with a mindful focus on staying present.'

This class is open to all levels of practitioner, from total beginner to advanced yogi, all will benefit and are welcome.

Price: £25
Time: 3pm-4:30pm
When: July 29th 2018
Where: The Tipi, Tipi Yoga, Sheepstreet Lane, Etchingham

Full Moon Slow Flow, Yin and Nidra - £25

In yoga we celebrate the moon as a feminine source of energy, we will embrace this and channel it into our Yin and yoga practice. Slow and gentle in cardiovascular terms but tough with flexibility and holds, the flow will embrace feminine pose such as Goddess and Wild Thing - poses with a focus on letting go. Yin targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and joint capsules of the hips, pelvis and lower spine, this slow but effective style includes longer asana holds to allow the body to deepen into poses and stretches. We will end with a relaxing Yoga Nidra practice guided by the lovely Alison.

Price: £25
Time: 7:30pm-9:30pm
When: August 7th 2018
Where: The Tipi, Tipi Yoga, Sheepstreet Lane, Etchingham

Mindfulness, Meditation and Restoration

Relax in the Tipi on a lazy late summer Sunday afternoon with Karin.
The workshop is suitable for anyone of any ability, age or experience. Truly suitable for beginners and those who wish to unwind and learn to be more mindful in their practice.

Beginning with a 30 minute grounding ceremony with simple pranayama (breath) practice for rejuventation. Pranayama benefits range from stress releaving, lowering blood pressure, increasing clarity of mind and helping with weight loss to curing asthma (witnessed first hand at Tipi Yoga) and extending life expectancy.

To follow, a slow, mindful, moving practice to release and warm the body - this practice will be of a restorative and Yin background and will use bolsters, cushions and blankets to truly allow you to relax and hold postures with ease. For those of more established ability there will be options for more challenging asanas and for those with little experience there will be modifications to take.

And the final 45 minutes will be enjoyed with guided meditation. Karin will enable you to explore yourself, surrounded by the sounds of birds, a tibetan singing bowl, relaxing music and Karin's soothing voice you will find it easy to switch off and travel within.
Leaving you energised, fresh, calm and rejuvenated for the start of your week.

Price: £35
Time: 2pm-5pm

Workshops To Look Forward To:

Acro Yoga
The combination of acrobatics and yoga leads to some mesmerising movements individually, in pairs and in small groups, trust is key – mostly in yourself. This class will take place as a workshop and will be 3 hours long.

Inversions and Arm Balances
Challenging and trusting yourself as you learn to prepare your mind and body for all inversions and arm balances; from crow to handstand. Your strong, balanced practice starts now. 3 hours long with plenty of refreshments and hands on tuition. Beginners and intermediate aimed sessions will be available.

Heart Openers
Back bending is often the most difficult challenge of any yogi. Exploring opening the heart in a safe environment leads to strengthening of the postural and spinal muscles and joints and teaches patience and the art of surrendering. Flowing through the lengthening of the front of the body, upper back and hips to create space in the spine before strengthening the legs and core to increase stability in the postures. This workshop will be 2.5 hours long.

Hip Openers
Our hips are famously where emotion gets stuck and suppressed, leading to tension – this 2 hour workshop is perfect to overcome and release this mental or physical barrier. Our lifestyle choices of office work, sitting too much, attending the gym without stretching prior all result in hip flexor compression and shortening leading to hip, knee and lower back pain and problems. Running and cycling can also have similar impacts on the hips. Learning to open your hips safely is the prime goal of this workshop – we will use seated, supine and standing postures to increase range of movement, muscle, joint and ligament strength and flexibility.
