      Yoga For Self-Care

      with Michelle Levi
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 10:30 AM - 04:30 PM

      Do you treat yourself in a kind and compassionate way whenever you suffer, fail or feel inadequate? Or is this when an inner critic steps in? Would you like to have more emotional resiliency? To be able to bounce back in a healthy way when life presents its challenges.

      This workshop will offer you tools to help you accept yourself and build inner strength especially in times of stress and challenge.

      Valentine’s day prompts us to send messages of love to the special people in our lives. How about letting it prompt us this year to start being kinder to ourselves? Being kind to yourself, especially during a stressful experience, is known as self-compassion. It’s a simple concept - treat yourself as kindly as you would treat a dear friend who needs support - but it’s one that most people find exceedingly difficult to adopt.

      Self-compassion has its foundation in centuries old Buddhist teachings but it’s only within the last decade that it has been the subject of research studies. Numerous studies have shown that having self-compassion strongly increases our overall well-being and reduces depression, stress, and anxiety.

      The workshop is open to all regardless of experience, ability or age; just come with a willingness to open your mind and heart.
      It will be a practical day of Hatha yoga asana, guided relaxation and self-inquiry where Michelle introduces the concept of Self-Compassion and how to apply it in times of need.


      Michelle Levi has been offering yoga since 2000. She was blessed to be able to enjoy and complete a 9-month full time Teacher Training many years ago before the trend for month long courses took over. Since 2015 Michelle has been training new teachers with SatyaLoka School of Yoga and Tantra, where she specialises in asana methodology, pranayama, meditation and dance. She lives in Totnes and has been teaching, classes, workshops and retreats locally for the last 10 years.

      She holds an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher designation from Yoga Alliance and is the founder of: Holistic Yoga Retreats.

      Scaravelli with Sophie

      With Sophie Whiting
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 02:00 PM - 05:00 PM Each Day

      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’

      My workshops are suitable for all, irrespective of health or experience. My classes are not pose based as I am primarily interested in helping people to learn to work with the body in such a way as to help free them and I find that 'doing poses' often only serves to further embed existing tensions and holdings.

      A bit about me:

      I first tried yoga because I had an extremely painful lower back and was desperate to try anything to sort it out. Over a period of about fifteen years I went to various yoga classes, sometimes as often as five times a week. In these classes, my aim was not so much to achieve this or that pose, although I tried my best, but rather to rid myself of the crippling pain in my back. Despite my dedication I knew I was getting nowhere — even if I often felt physically better after a class. It never lasted. I was trying to force my body to do what I thought I wanted or what my teacher thought I needed. The result was that I wasn’t paying any attention to what my body was screaming to tell me; that it hurt even more, rather than less.

      It was only when I started working with Diane Long and Sophy Hoare in 2005 that I began to understand that this Scaravelli approach to yoga is fundamentally about allowing yourself the freedom to move. It’s about putting in place and cultivating the conditions – both physical and mental – for developing a freely moving body. It’s about making space for the new, the undiscovered, the unknown.

      My approach to yoga is now based on the principle that a yoga practice is an exercise in learning to let go of tension and pain in your body and not an exercise in endurance as you try to achieve a set of rigid poses. It means being kind to your body and not trying to discipline it. It’s about learning to work with and not against your body and enjoying its new movement. One way of trying to describe this approach to yoga is that it’s about recognising and then ridding yourself of obstacles to what’s already there.

      If you have any questions or would like to book, then please call me on: 07717795798 or: email me.

      If you'd like some idea of how I work and teach, then please go to my webpage to see videos and testimonials at: www.vandascaravelliyoga.com

      Nourishing the spirit, honouring the soul

      With Nikki Darling
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM

      This workshop offers the space to connect with the sprit and soul through nourishing and restful practices.

      By exploring gentle but energising postures, pranayama and mantra, we will encourage the prana to move through the psychic centres of the body. This journey through the chakras will prepare us to open up to deeper meditation. There will be time for rejuvenating self-massage to close the morning.

      Isvara pranidana is the intention that guides this practice; by surrendering to the divinity flowing through all life we are inviting a deep sense of connection and bliss. I will weave readings from the Radiance Sutras through the workshop, as sacred portals to the song of the divine. At the same time we will be honouring the spirit and energies of nature by connecting with the great earth mother and the higher self. This uplifting yet deeply grounding practice allows you to contact your sangkalpa, the heart’s truest desire, and in doing so, releasing habitual beliefs that no longer serve your highest purpose.

      The flowers, the incense,
      Grain, spices and honey
      Offered in ritual are made of the same divine stuff as you.
      Who then is worshipped?
      ~ The Radiance Sutras

      £30 full price
      £25 early bird price if booked by 10th February

      To book please contact Nikki on 07900802120 or

      Decolonising Yoga

      With Sophia Ayesha Ansari
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 10:00 AM - 05:00 PM Each Day
      "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 Yoga as part of our consumer palate: we can choose our gentrified studios, the fashionable brands, the luxury retreat. More styles, more classes, more training's and yet yoga teachers are actually struggling to maintain an income based on their skills.

      Along with the erasure of South Asian ethics, praxis and voices, it is not coincidental that yoga is now reduced to a fitness, a new age gimmick or hipster trend.

      Without boundaries, medical research ‘discovers’ yogic breathing techniques, re defining a generations old practice on new terms, Co-opted by the wellness industry, the yoga industrial complex plays into insecurities, readjusting us to the status quo

      In India, yoga is currently being used to bolster the face of ethno-nationalism & fundamentalism. During the colonial period, internalised violence and authoritarianism fuelled dynamics of abuse that have now rotted the guru-shishya system to its core. Yoga retreats are traps for tourists lured in by the saviour complex or an ideal of Indian romanticism

      We are all part of this system and we are all harmed by it. yet how do we liberate ourselves from collusion and step into accountability together?

      Decolonising yoga is not a mission, it is an invitation.

      This workshop is open to yoga teachers, therapists, activists and caring professionals ready to challenge and transform habits, norms and practices
      This includes embracing new skills to support us to work consciously with yoga as a sophisticated psycho-spiritual tool.

      This weekend stands as an introduction to those interested in training in the SattvaGaia yoga therapy program.

      How can we decolonise yoga?

      Yoga wisdom gives us the means to elicit our discerning mind (buddhi) to use righteous action to reduce harm (ahimsa).

      As teachers/ facilitators, we can examine our unconscious use of teaching practices that have Victorian roots and unwittingly obstruct people’s sense of agency, reinforcing objectification & dissociation. This increases more so when privilege and power is not understood or observed.

      We can also consider ‘skilling up’ to challenge the watering down of yoga. In Indian tradition, teachers were more akin to wise elders, counsellors or healers. Through more understanding of relational and social dynamics, we can begin to reach and work with communities and individuals currently marginalised by the yoga industrial complex.

      Over the weekend, we will open our eyes to key colonial/ neo liberal capitalist power dynamics and explore how we can actively challenge them in our work.

      Cherry picking: Taking the good leaving the bad, this includes but is not limited to the exotification of yoga or Indian aesthetics. Cultural appropriation leaves out acknowledging the racist realities and the historical -cultural trauma faced by the South Asian (diaspora) community and other communities of colour who currently do not frequent UK yoga spaces.

      Cultural Erasure: The ‘secularization’ of yoga traditions or making yoga more palatable; as observed by certain corporate yoga or trauma sensitive yoga programmes. This involves stripping out terminology, mythology, metaphors, symbolism, and family practices, where yoga is almost unrecognisable and can be presented as beer, gin, nude or metal yoga. In India, secularization stems from internalised shame and rigid adherence to allopathic science as validation

      Privilege based bypassing: Yoga classes can unwittingly sell a desired outcome, so that students/clients buy into TLC, or the means to release pent up tension . An addiction to catharsis and purging only re adjusts us to suffering and enduring harsh systems. It also reinforces able bodied privilege and individualism

      Monological teaching
      Utilising rational and objective principles, we can do more. e.g maintain large class sizes. Yet by virtue of a reductionist, bio mechanical approach, emotions, feelings or energy gets disqualified. It gives us very little space and time to work with personal complexity. Differences are not seen.

      In balance, we will exploring how to amplify key decolonial Yoga principles:

      Somatic resonance
      How might we teach with an embodied, relational attunement, to be in true service to another and to create safer, non judgemental spaces,
      This involves meeting people where they are at, validating them, hearing their dilemmas and respectfully entering into their hearts.

      Conscious positionality
      How does it help to understand one’s own bias and social cultural reference point. There is a virtue and truth that comes from acting in alignement with one’s social power and considering the impact it has on our decisions and actions.

      Power with, rather than power over
      How can we use our authority (as a guide, facilitator and wise counsel) to hold and create liminal space (free and protected) without interfering, rescuing or controlling.

      Agency
      How could we support agency through slowing down and choice as well as being with states of not knowing. Can we give freedom to express vulnerability, grief or righteous anger and make space for people’s real experiences, suffering and pain.

      Invitation
      How might we foster an invitational and non judgemental environment for the body’s and souls healing wisdom to come forth. How might we create the circumstances for Atman to wake up within the internal pranic system..

      This workshop will be facilitated by Sophia, through a process of storytelling, sharing, creativity, mudras, breathwork and a decolonial asana practice (re imagined through Indian classical dance & Ayurvedic embodied wisdom). It is open and accessible to persons of any body shape, size, colour, gender, age and ability.

      Sophia is an UKCP accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor and a Yoga teacher-therapist (BWY dip, Ayurveda therapy dip). She has been teaching for 25 years and has since acquired further professional training in mindfulness, authentic movement and polyvagal-informed movement psychotherapy for trauma. She also has a Masters in Colonial History from SOAS (School of Oriental & African Studies). Sophia is in private practice in Cardiff offering yoga therapy and somatic psychotherapy to individuals and groups. This includes community practice: facilitating restorative yoga therapy to survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence and human trafficking.

      Tania Rose Fox
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 02:00 PM - 05:30 PM

      Please note this is not a yoga workshop (though there are elements of yoga nidra & guided meditation involved), but if you are a woman seeking heart-opening, wishing to cultivate greater intuitive access and joyfulness, or curious about exploring spiritual connection through gentle plant medicine, you will love this!

      Join Tania for an intimate & deep heart-awakening cacao ceremony to spring-clean your spirits and let go of any wintry darkness & emotional blockages weighing on you as we approach the ancient festival of renewal, tapping into cacao’s blissful loving energy as nature awakens from her seasonal slumbers. A cacao ceremony is a wonderful opportunity to experience heart-opening and emotional release, and access more intuitive states of awareness.

      Cacao ceremonies can take many forms; Tania is a trained plant medicine practitioner, working with cacao plant medicine in a particularly deep, intentional, meditative way, rooted in ancient Mesoamerican and Amazonian traditions and more modern approaches. enabling you to journey within and experience inner connection and often powerful insights and emotional release.

      A sacred cacao ceremony is a powerful & beautiful opportunity to experience heart-opening, emotional release and spiritual inner connection assisted by a gentle, safe yet potent plant medicine. After setting intentions for your ceremony and drinking ceremonial-grade Peruvian cacao (the purest form of unprocessed chocolate), you will be lead on a guided meditative shamanic journey to dive deep and connect with your deepest intuition assisted by the powerful energy of the cacao plant : get your ego chatter out of the way & tune in more deeply to hear the whispering of your heart, and find the clarity & insight to see and let go of whatever is blocking your heart from being fully open, joyful, bold & brave, so you can move forward in your life.

      Tania is one of only a handful of trained cacaoistas working in the UK. Having experienced a profound heart-opening on Maui in 2015, she began a deep connection with ceremonial cacao in 2017, undertook her apprenticeship training in 2018 and has been holding sacred ceremonies around Devon ever since, and holding safe healing space as a yoga teacher since 2012. She loves sharing this amazing yet gentle & loving plant medicine with curious-hearted, open-minded souls as a pathway to experiencing greater wholeness and spiritual connection. Cacao ceremonies are a wonderful complement to any path of self-exploration and healing.

      FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS... "What a powerful and enriching experience!

So rewarding to have a safe place to share honestly without judgement. Good to have time to reflect...It felt very positive and gave clarity to thoughts.

A practice that will help to regenerate and revitalise the body's connective tissue, while boosting blood and lypmphatic flow, improving mobility and stimulating the nervous system. A great addition to any movement practice or sport.

      We'll be blending these techniques with the therapeutic qualities of free movement and yin & restorative yoga.... it's a deep and juicy combo!

      Fascia is our body's seam system. A fluid and interconnected web of connective tissue that weaves & binds and slides & glides through, around, in-between and throughout every part of us. It is literally everywhere. It holds us together, gives us our form, our bounce and our lift! and allows us to experience our felt sense of connection and continuities of movement…when healthy it keeps us mobile and bouyant, and when it's not, it can get really knotty, rigid and sore

      We'll move through a complete practice that will leave you feeling mentally, physically and heartFULLY rested, revitalised, and ready for the week ahead!

      Sleep and Total Yoga Nidra

      With Nirlipta Tuli
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 10:00 AM - 05:00 PM

      Trouble sleeping? Would you like instead to turn in, tune out, hit the zzzzz zone, and drop off?

      Then let go of some of the obstacles to sleeping well, to sleeping better than you may do now and indeed for those with insomnia those obstacles to feeling that you can sleep at all, with the one day course in sleeping well with Total Yoga Nidra, devised by a long term insomniac, self cured through this very process, Nirlipta Tuli, co-founder of the online yoganidranetwork and of Total Yoga Nidra. Experience deep, profound, restorative rest for body, mind, emotions and one’s whole being in an intimate studio in the South Devon.

      Consider how good it would feel to be able to turn off the worries of the mind which sometimes get in the way of sleeping. Consider how good it is to let the mind slow, and for the emotions to be soothed and to quieten. Consider getting into bed pleasantly, anticipating sleeping well, rather than dreading the end of the day

      "Deep rest, deep relaxation, a deeper sense of letting go of those things which prevent sleeping well, and letting the mind slowly slow and even stop conscious concerns and anxieties a little. And then feel what it would be like to let go, little by little, into a shallow pleasant reverie, and from there to drift down into a deeper slumber, and to wake much later feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and ready for the day ahead. This is what happened to me when I started doing this for myself." – Nirlipta Tuli

      This one day course will be held in the lovely warm, cave like studio at Yoga Torquay. It will be deeply restful and there will be much in the way of listening comfortably to yoga nidra lying propped up (or down) on yoga mats with blankets, cushions, bolsters eye pillows and so on. The nidras are recorded and made available to participants and their partners to listen to as they go to sleep.

      It will be a mixture of a practical and theoretical exploration of what sleep is, what prevents it and what makes it more likely to work well. The emphasis is firmly on practical ways of dealing with this widespread issue with yoga nidra. There will be an experiential understanding of how to sleep well with Total Yoga Nidra by doing yoga nidra. The day promises deep, deep relaxation at mental, physical and emotional levels.

      The course aims to show how yoga nidra can alleviate and modify unhelpful sleeping patterns into those more conducive to sleeping in a more enjoyable and productive way. This will be done by practicing yoga nidra for much of the day and the theory, while useful is but an adjunct to this.

      This is a brief overview of topics which will be covered during the day:

      • What is yoga nidra and how it can help improve the quality of sleep
      • Patterns of sleep and wakefulness
      • The mechanics of sleep
      • Sleep hygiene
      • Using being awake (as a means to sleep even better)
      • Using being asleep (to begin exploring the world of dreams)

      "To help you decide about coming on this course or not this is a little paragraph about being frank. I’d like it if people who can’t sleep well come on my course. It will almost definitely help some of them a great deal, some of them a little and some, just a bit. I’m not promising a cure for insomnia, although on our Yoganidranetwork website my free sleep nidra has been listened to by more people than all the other nidras we share combined. When I meet people on my nidra teaching trips it’s such a given that people regularly come up to me and tell me that they’ve taken me to bed with them, and that my voice has sent them to sleep, that I don’t even bat an eyelid and my wife doesn’t raise her eyebrows at me anymore." – Nirlipta Tuli

      No prior experience of yoga nidra is needed. If you can lie down and listen you can do yoga nidra.

      There is an obvious limit to what can be learnt in a one day course in anything, both in the number of lessons taught, their content and the volume of knowledge imparted as well as what can be absorbed and assimilated in a useful and practical way, so I aim to teach the course in a friendly manner, going at the pace of the students, without overloading them but willing to go where they’re curious to on this sleep nidra journey.

      There is a choice. For some, it may be that coming to this one day course will either cure poor sleep, help significantly or help a bit with sleeping better. And even if nothing else then they will have a super relaxing day, as well as recordings of the nidras to listen to at home to help them sleep later. 

      Cost of this one day course is £109

      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 10:00 AM - 05:00 PM each day

      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.

      The Total Yoga Nidra Immersion Experience is a self-contained and complete retreat style immersion (non-residential) open to anyone with an interest in experiencing Total Yoga Nidra. It is both a standalone weekend course that covers all the fundamentals of Total Yoga Nidra, as well as being a pre-requisite for moving on to the full Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training. The intention of this part of the course is to offer an accessible and profound immersion in the experience of Total Yoga Nidra, providing a perfect opportunity for those who have encountered other partial or limited forms of the practice to meet the full spectrum of approaches to yoga nidra.

      We invite feedback from all our students - if you'd like to know what they're saying about this course then we're delighted to share it with you.

      Topics Covered Include
      A combination of theory and practice to give you a sound foundation (or to deepen your existing foundation) of understanding about what yoga nidra is in the broadest sense, and how it works, together with plenty of live, responsive and practical experiences of a full range of yoga nidra. We will cover:

      • Welcome to Yoga Nidra
      • History and Development
      • Intentions, and How They Shape the Practice
      • Comparative Structures
      • Comparative Rotations of Consciousness

      Cost of this two day course is £275  per person

      Sadhana Yoga Chi

      With Doug Swenson
      location_on Sacramento, CA access_time 06:00 PM - 08:30 PM

      We're delighted to welcome Doug Swenson back to the studio once again this year. Doug will be teaching 'Sadhana Yoga Chi' - a very soothing arrangement of soft and hard yoga asanas, connected together with mostly light (non - muscle resistance vinyasa) and some challenging (muscles resistance vinyasa). You will enjoy the challenge, achieve a variety of new poses and move with fluid power. When finished, drift into a blissful deep relaxation followed by a guided meditation.
