Hawaiian Heartwarming Yoga Cacao Nidra - Tania Rose Fox


Yoga Cacao Nidra returns to Yoga Torquay! If you haven’t previously experienced one of Tania’s Yoga Cacao Nidra workshops you’re in for a nourishing treat, especially as this particular Yoga Cacao Nidra will have a distinctly Hawaiian flavour. Pure raw cacao is noted for its heart-opening and uplifting properties, so yoga and cacao make a wonderful combination. This afternoon will offer much to unblock anahata chakra as we cultivate the aloha spirit of love and compassionate self-healing. As both an experienced yoga teacher and one of only a handful of trained cacaoistas in the UK, Tania loves combining these offerings to share with you!

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’

Decolonising Yoga - with Sophia Ayesha Ansari

“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” - Arundhati Roy.


Everywhere we look we see modern day yoga, caught up in the web of neoliberal capitalism. Along with the erasure of South Asian ethics, praxis and voices, it is not co incidental that yoga is now reduced to a fitness, new age gimmick or hipster trend. Without boundaries, medical research ‘discovers’ yogic breathing techniques, re defining a generations old practice on new terms. Yoga is part of our consumer palate: we can choose our gentrified studios, the fashionable brands, the luxury retreat. More training’s, more styles, yet teachers struggle to maintain an income based on their skills. Co opted by the wellness industry, the yoga industrial complex plays into our insecurities, readjusting us to adapt to the status quo.

Total Yoga Nidra Immersion Experience - with Nirlipta Tuli

Course Description:

Comparative and creative forms of Yoga Nidra. Awaken your consciousness of sleep and dream through the tantric practice of expanded awareness for lucid living. Become alive to the source of well-being, happiness and purpose in every dimension of life.

We understand yoga nidra to be the most transformative, potent and remarkably adaptive of all yoga practices. Yoga nidra is in fact not really a single practice, but rather an experience of altered states of consciousness, essentially meditative experiences which can be used therapeutically for healing, as well as to enhance creativity and productivity and to improve sleep and general health.
