From Strength to Strength
Saturday 6th July : Tynemouth Sailing Club
2pm - 5pm. : £30 inc Q&A and refreshments with Rosie.
In our ‘From Strength to Strength’ workshop we will get the opportunity to explore in more depth, key components of strength building to support our yoga practice. Whether we are enhancing an existing level of strength or building up from the beginning we can all benefit from drills specifically selected to help us locate and then to activate many of the key muscle groups fundamental to our yoga practice.
We will also look at how we can support naturally fragile parts of the body one example being the wrists, an area which can come under a lot of strain as our practice deepens.
No matter what our experience level we will all be able to come away with lots of useful information and inspiration for building strength and enhancing our practice.
At the end of our workshop we will also have plenty of time for a long relaxation followed by refreshments with a Q&A discussion on anything we may be working through in our own practice that we would like some extra help or advice with.
Poetry in Motion

We are excited to invite you to an innovative workshop fusing yoga's ethos of self-acceptance, nurture and respect with reading and writing poetry.

Dr Eleanor Holmes, a published writer and workshop facilitator, will be joining me to deliver this unique experience at Tynemouth’s Sailing Club at The Haven. You will be introduced to poetry texts and writing exercises interwoven with yoga flows and introspective practice to explore the idea of poetry in motion.

Stranded Yin Yoga
Saturday & Sunday 16th & 17th February : St Mary's Lighthouse
£45 inc lunch with Jo
Celebrating Jasmine Yoga’s Birthday again inside St Mary’s Lighthouse, we practice yoga and meditation together for approximately 5 hours until the tide allows us to leave the island.
We will take time away from life’s stresses and strains to practice long passive yoga holds, allowing our bodies and minds to become still. We will then practise a deep meditation together and leave the island when the tide flows away.
Saturday 30th March : Tynemouth Sailing Club
2pm - 5pm £30 inc refreshments with Rosie
As nature transitions from the restful dormant energy of winter, into the awakening vibrancy of spring we have the opportunity to embrace and mirror this change within our yoga practice as well. In this ‘spring recharge’ workshop we will move through two distinct styles of yoga to emulate this seasonal transition.
We will start with restorative yoga, really harnessing the nurturing aspect of winter hibernation, gradually drawing ourselves out of this peaceful stillness towards the activity and creativity of spring. We will move into a lovely rejuvenating vinyasa flow, using dynamic movement to re-charge ourselves and bring ourselves back to full power. We will end the afternoon with a lovely long relaxation, followed by snacks and refreshments.
Let's Twist Again!
Saturday 13th April : Tynemouth Sailing Club
1.30pm - 4.30pm £30 inc refreshments with Jo
Twisting Flows are wonderful for circulation and digestion in addition to strengthening the whole spinal column and bringing increased mobility and flexibility by targeting the whole torso. As we twist, we encourage more efficient blood circulation to cleanse the whole body....oh and have I mentioned how much fun twisting flows are too!!
We will flow together for 90 minutes, building a twisting sequence, opening our hearts and shoulders, and bringing a sense of physical and mental well-being to body and mind.
After refreshments, we will settle into a gentle, peaceful twisting Yin practice....an afternoon of fun and balance to nurture your mind, body and spirit.
