Yoga & Supper
Gabrielle & friends
6.30 - 9.00 pm
Secret Studio, Hackney
Yoga, Ritual and breath-work followed by a simple home-cooked meal.
Back to the beginning of SYC to welcome you into the SYC studio (Gabrielle's home) to have a nourishing evening of yoga, food and conversation with like-minded souls.
An evening to bring your friends, meet new friends or just ensure that between netflix, vino, children or cooking, you have one precious evening a week of self care and tenderness. Just for you.
You are also welcome to join and sit quietly after class with your food. Introverts, we feel you!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any allergies by Sunday evening.
Gabrielle’s intention is to create a kind and welcome space for people to awaken sensation, stillness, clarity and both cosmic and earthly potential.
Class opens with the breath, to guide people into fascination for their own multifaceted inner world, towards the poetry of presence.
She begins movement slowly, coaxing stiff bodies out of numbness or hibernation. Easing into feeling, fire, or just a deliciously slow flow to build up gentle heat and unlock tension.
Classes are open to everyone, with modifications for people that are beginning to discover these exciting practises and some suggestions for those that might want to stretch themselves (ahem) further.
Sessions are all different - sometimes rigorously planned and other days the collective requires spontaneity and receptivity. Often with music, but sometime with the breath as the guide.
All offerings are intended to welcome feeling, build intuition and self-trust and relieve the bodymindsoul of modern dirt and stress.
Gabrielle has been teaching for 12 years and has had her first book published, Secret Yoga Club with Octopus, Hachette.
She teaches with huge gratitude to the motherland of India, to past and present Guru’s (the translation for this Sanskrit word is the remover of darkness, though more commonly understood as mentor or guide.)
Her trainings have included a 200hr training in India, Jivamukti 200hr, Esalen massage course, Triyoga Advanced Teacher training (⅓ way through) and the privilege of working with incredible teachers such as Jean Hall, Carolyn Cowan, Zephyr Wildman and Janice Hellens.
She has an eclectic, multidisciplinary approach to creating her own classes, though her perspective is one Nondual Saiva Tantra.
The body is celebrated as an expression of the divine, and one incarnation the universal consciousness that pulsates through all nature and beings. The senses are portals into presence and expansion.
