Pregnancy and Post-Natal Barre Series (4 Week Course)

A four week course designed to strengthen those all-important muscles groups essential for pre and postnatal. A bit more energetic than pregnancy yoga, less high impact than a normal barre class, this will really help with gaining and maintaining strength and flexibility.

Fusing techniques from Yoga, Pilates and Ballet, Barre is a low-impact exercise programme which is perfect for both mums to be and new mums!

Dates:
Saturday, November 30 4pm - 5pm
Saturday, December 7 4pm - 5pm
Saturday, December 14 4pm - 5pm

Autumn Solstice Workshop
Sep

3:00 PM15:00

Autumn Solstice Workshop

Join Ale for a 2 hours yoga workshop in which we will focus on the incredible lessons from Autumn in relation to Aparigraha (the yogic principle of non attachment).

Every season is a reminder that nothing lasts forever. Everything has a moment of creation and destruction, but all are equally beautiful and majestic in nature. Honouring change is vital for our deeper understanding of ourselves. We, too, must change and let things fall off and regrow in order to help us evolve as humans. 

Like the trees let go of their old leaves to make space for the new, we can release and let go of things that bring us suffering (patterns and behaviours, feelings and memories - all stored in our bodies) to make space for more joy and happiness.

In this workshop, through gentle and mindful sequencing we will rebalance and work with blockages throughout the entire body, open shoulders and hips, increase our feeling of grounding and safety so we can release all that not longer serves us in life.

This release can have a strongly transformational effect - making space to invite what we truly need in our life to be happier.

Spend an afternoon with a gentle but deep yoga practice, guided meditation, a yogic release ritual, a beautiful mantra and a deep relaxation supported with the  sound of the Ancient Gong, Tibetan Singing Bowls and other shamanic instruments, which you will leave feeling more grounded, more free and more spacious in your body, mind and heart. Suitable for beginners.

Postnatal Workshop

Postnatal Workshop

This 2 hour workshop is suitable for new mums at least 6 weeks post childbirth but you don’t have to have had a baby recently to join. Anyone who is experiencing ongoing difficulties with their pelvic floor or who simply wants to learn more about it is welcome!

 The workshop will help you to understand the role of your pelvic floor muscles, how they work and how best to train them. We will assess your abdominal activation strategies (looking at Diastasis Recti, separation of the abdominal muscles which is common post pregnancy) and how to activate your abdominal wall safely during yoga practice. We will use common yoga poses and breath work with consideration of your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. We will finish with a gentle yoga flow with attention to hip opening and abdominal activation - putting what you have learned into practice!

"I have worked in clinical practice for 10 years helping women recover from injuries that may have been linked to childbirth. I spent time developing my understanding of assessment and training of females post pregnancy and my passion is to help get them back into activities they enjoyed before having babies, with confidence. 

Yoga is the perfect compliment to early rehabilitation of the pelvic floor after pregnancy, making it easy to link my two passions together, practicing yoga and helping women do what they love. I am looking forward to talking pelvic floors and yoga with you all!"

Barre and Props + Yin Yoga

Barre and Props + Yin Yoga

Let’s have barre fun! We will use different props throughout this workshop to help you tone, strengthen and lengthen in a classic barre class.

We will conquer our plies, ballet positions, and improve our balance and choreography!

Barre has become one of the most popular fusions of ballet, pilates and contemporary dance to build strength, muscle tone and flexibility.  You will get a chance to tone, sculpt and stretch your entire body. There is no need to be a professional dancer or to have any background in dance.

Barre is split into three main sections: intense warm-up, standing part (plies, ballet movements), core-strengthening section and cool-down with a great choice of intense music to ensure you get all the positive energy while working hard.

Barre is for all body types, fitness levels and dance abilities. No need to have dance shoes, you can do this class in socks.  

After we have fun during the barre dance we will cool down through nice, deep and slow yin poses. One of the best ways to spend your afternoon.

Summer Solstice Workshop

Summer Solstice Workshop

The summer solstice marks the beginning of summer as well as the longest day of the year. It is a celebration of our inner light, fire and power - it expands and brightens our lives.

The fire/heat element in the body resides in our Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra, our centre of strength and vitality; contributing to confidence, self esteem, will power and movement.

Join Ale for a Summer Solstice celebratory workshop at Everybody Studio! We will explore the qualities of fire, deep inner transformation, burning through our fears and obstacles to encourage the seeds of our intentions into fruition.

We will introduce the theme of the Manipura Chakra in the context of the Summer Solstice, flow through a Sun inspired and Fire focused energetic vinyasa sequence and reflect on the abundance in our lives through meditation and an unforgettable experience of a sound bath.

Drinks and snacks provided.

Not suitable for complete beginners (but if you've been to Ale's classes at least a couple of times before the workshop, you'll be fine!).

Due to the small size of this studio places are very limited, so please book via Everybody Studio website or your Mindbody App to secure yours.

Breathwork Sister Circle

Copy of Sisters.jpg

This is an opportunity to experience the power of breathwork in a community for women and women-aligned. It’s a chance to check in with yourself and ask ‘How am I doing?’ Time to share and to connect on a deep level. Being heard and supported by other women unlocks our power and potential as individuals and as a community. 

Alchemy of Breath is a simple breath technique to increase the amount of oxygen coming into our body. It helps us drop out of our head and into our heart space. We connect more deeply to our physical body and to our energetic state. There will be a full introduction to the Alchemy of Breath technique. Benefits include:

  • Feel more calm, freedom and happiness

  • Access your inner confidence and creativity

  • Reconnect with your intuition and inner-guidance

  • Experience presence and wellbeing in your body.

Your Facilitator – Karen Iles

Karen discovered the healing power of Breathwork on a visit to Bali in 2014, when she was dealing with multiple personal challenges. After seeing her life, and particularly her personal relationships, change dramatically over the next two years, she signed up for the Alchemy of Breath facilitator programme. Karen is a yoga teacher in Oxford and has been sharing Breathwork with individuals and groups since 2017.

Active birth workshop

shutterstock_283219115.jpg

An active birth describes a birth where a mother is encouraged to follow her natural birthing instincts. She is free to move and give birth in a position of her choice, using upright postures and the power of gravity to help her. She will feel empowered throughout the process and active in the decision making. 

In this workshop Sarah will give you the tools and confidence you need to have an Active Birth. 

We will: 

- Look at what to expect during the different stages of labour

- Practise labour and birth positions, along with breathing, relaxation and vocalisation techniques to use during pregnancy and labour. 

- Understand the physiological processes of birth and how the pelvis, uterus and the body’s wonderful symphony of hormones are perfectly designed to birth your baby. 

- Emphasise the role of the birth partner and practise massage techniques to use before and during labour. 

- Discuss the hour after birth, and the fourth trimester.

This is a workshop for pregnant women and their birth partners, but Mums on their own are very much welcome. 

Bring an open mind and wear comfy clothing! Tea and plenty of snacks will be provided, and there’ll be a break for lunch in the middle.

£45pp or £90 per pair/couple. Strictly limited to 10 participants to ensure a comfortable, nurturing environment.
