Beyond Asana - with Virginia Compton


The Yoga sutras give us 8 limbs of Yoga and yet in the west we primarily focus on Asana (postures).  This workshop will include a simple Asana routine and will then focus upon Bandha, Pranayama, Nidra and Meditation, allowing us to experience the shift of energy in the bodymind, withdrawing our senses (pratyahara) using Mudra and NIdra and then focusing to assist a state of meditative awareness. This will be followed by refreshments with opportunity for discussion of the experience and questions as well as consideration of how tis may be incorporated into our regular self practice.

£20, £10 deposit payable on booking.

Vinyasa Krama for the Internal Organs - with Steve Brandon


Yoga practice was designed to cultivate independent health through all phases of life, promote longevity and cultivate mental peace and emotional balance.

A condition of integrated health and vitality was thought to be a support for the normal activities of life and also a foundation for personal Spiritual research through meditation which is proposed by various schools of Yoga.

Yoga CPD day: Understanding Shame - with Sophia Ansari


A weekend to explore how and why people’s shame shows up in our yoga classes, one to one’s or yoga therapy sessions.

Yoga spaces and teaching methods will trigger personal and body shame. This is inevitable and not necessarily negative, if we can consciously address it. Understanding shame reduces harm and helps us engage with others more authentically and inclusively.

Scaravelli with Sophie


We are delighted to welcome Sophie Whiting to Yoga Torquay. Sophie is an experienced teacher inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli.

This yoga is unique in not being about getting into a particular pose or position. In fact, the ambition to achieve a certain pose will be an obstacle to your practising yoga in the way in which Vanda Scaravelli intended. For Vanda, this revolutionary approach to the yoga she discovered and taught was in essence an exercise in freeing the body in order to ‘set the mind free’
