Are you interested in starting yoga but haven't got a clue? Have you already begun a practice but would like to fill in the gaps? Well here's your remedy :)

A simple, informative and fun workshop covering all the basics you need to start you off in the big wide world of yoga, as well as a few simple poses to take home and practice to treat your body. The workshop will cover a few topics including:

'What is Yoga?'

a brief overview of the history and philosophy behind yoga as well as different styles and what they mean

'Basic Anatomy'

helping you to understand your body and how to place it in poses


the whys and hows of breath control


The poses themselves, broken down into categories or 'families'

'Relaxation techniques'

to help you to get your mind into the right place for your practice but also to apply to your outside life...

You will also receive a sheet of basic poses to practice at home if you choose.

Prior booking is a must and if you would like to secure a space, advance payment is required.The cost of this workshop is £20.

I really hope you can make it along and it will be a real joy to share a bit more about yoga with you!

Happy Easter one and all! Ok so the level of chocolate going on in this house is nearing digusting. I recently read an article about being a 'bad yogi' and forgiving yourself such sins, so have taken this as an intervention from the universe not to beat myself up about it too much. It has however, spurred me forward to write a kick ass detox sequence for class next week.

So the mellowburn adventure continues onwards and upwards. I have fast learnt that one things for sure in this yoga teaching business, you cannot predict ANYthing. I mean when you think you're getting nice and cosy in a teaching schedule, you can bet your bottom dollar everything will change in the blink of an eye - so its important to stay adaptable and flexible. I have covered anywhere and everywhere and its fabulous when it creates new connections and experiences to learn from. It humbles me when new opportunites continue to be placed at my door and I'm forever in awe of my students continued faith in me as they appear and reappear at my classes. To share something so positive that I'm told over and over again is changing peoples lives for the better, makes me very happy indeed.

My newest teaching opportunities since I last blogged, involve a stint in Pirbright covering a fantastic little class of 'country yogis' ;), an offering to lead some workshops in Cafe Mila Yoga Studios in Godalming, and a great job teaching regularly at Aveda Hair Salons in Central Guildford. They have put together a luxury studio space for an intimate class, including mohair blankets and underfloor heating - tres posh! I'm delighted at the opportunity to teach a yin/yang blend which I believe will be the only class of its kind on offer in Guildford!

More excitment comes from my regular teaching gig on Thursday evenings at Peak Fitness Gym in central woking... They have had so many complaints from students that there wasn't space in my class, that they have added an extra class! My ego is in tact I promise - but I am thrilled!

I continue to cover at Surrey Sports Park now and again, and it goes without saying that my beloved Mellowburn Classes continue on as a growing community of yoga lovers and general lovelies.

I can feel my teaching has evolved so much - thought I'm forever excited to look forward to sharing new poses and transistions between poses, not to mention the ongoing thrill of seeking out themes, guided meditations and yoga styles to share. We do so love to explore in class and sometimes I'm as suprised as the next person about what comes up! It is brilliant to watch everyone fall further in love with their own practice and progress so beautifully. Lots of photos on my facebook page of students in wierd and wonderful poses if you're interested:

So if you're reading this and you haven't ventured forth to a mellowburn class yet, I promise its worth a try - I mean, well I would say that, but from the feedback I get, I feel confident that its worth an hour of your time to see what its like! Hope to see you matside - love n' peace, Mel x
