Flow and Restore

Monday 6-7.15 p.m
Tantric Hatha Yoga
The Yoga Tree Studio 

Flow and Restore Yoga Class - Yoga with Ivana - Norwich

Practices that draw from a timeless tapestry of Tantra, Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda to assist your inner and outer evolution.

These classes are aimed at newcomers, oldcomers, people who would like to deepen their practice or just anyone who enjoys intentional and slower-paced practice. 

Understand the foundations of these complete systems for living in harmony with ourselves, each other and nature through your practice of going just at a little bit slower pace and being more aware. Learn to direct your attention (energy) in the direction you want to go.

Each month you will be guided through a specific theme and each class will be an opportunity to release tension, fostering ease and steadiness in the physical body. Cultivate a deeper connection with your breath through asanas (postures), explore pranayama (breathing techniques), and unwind with simple relaxation. All in preparation for healing and nurturing guided meditation to exercise the muscle of your awareness (the most important muscle!) to restore mental intelligence and quality of your Being. 

Inclusive for all levels, however not suitable as your first-ever class. 

Book online for a single session for £10 or email me to get a discounted price of £54 for 6 classes (it must be used within 8 weeks) 

Monday 7.30-8.45 p.m 
Pranayama-Infused Yin
The Yoga Tree Studio 

Yin Yoga and Pranayama beginners Yoga Class Norwich

Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice of longer-held passive poses to enhance and renew the body's vital energy, ease joint-rigidity, and immobility, and nourish the body at the whole level.

Yin aids with digestion, muscle repair, organ detoxification and emotional processing. The gentle, supported postures allow the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, joints, and fascia) to strengthen, and with consistent practice over a few weeks, you will notice postural improvement, increased ease of movement and overall balance of mind and body.

This is the perfect complementary practice to a more active Yang practice and the busy lifestyles we live in. 

Practices will be guided by a monthly theme and accompanied by the Pranayama (breath work) to soothe the nervous system and purify the subtle body.

"When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace"

No previous Yoga experience is necessary and complete beginners are welcome. Appropriate for all ages and levels.

Happy Om Yoga Studio - Restorative Yoga Class with Ivana

Rest and Restore - Yin & Restorative Yoga, Extended Savasana for Relaxation or Yoga Nidra 

These classes are all about restorative and therapeutic approaches to our practice to help us remain in a restful and nurturing stillness that we need now more than ever. Sometimes we go full restorative also- all depending on the theme, season and energy of the group.

These practices are an invitation to move and rest your body and mind in a very luxurious yin/ restorative way. Props are used to support the body so poses can be held longer, allowing the body to open through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses, and their shapes are modified to your individual self with blocks, bolsters, blankets and straps to eliminate unnecessary muscular effort. They are an active form of relaxation. Specific body parts are alternately relaxed and stimulated, moving the body back to its natural balanced state. Some poses will have an overall positive effect on the body’s systems, while others will target a specific part, such as the chest or spine.
This practice is a journey inward. Soothing, comforting, relaxing and renewing. It is excellent for reducing chronic stress, anxiety, exhaustion and antidote to stress (rest). All wrapped up with deep conscious restful relaxation - Yoga Nidra.

No previous Yoga experience is necessary and complete beginners are welcome. Appropriate for all ages and levels.

These classes are run in 6-week terms bound by specific dates as the space of Happy Om is smaller in size.  

Current series: 28th May - 2nd July

Theme: Replenish Energy Restorative + IEP (Intuitive Energy Practice)

Next dates: 9th July - 13th August

Book online for a single session for £10 or email me to get a discounted price of £54 for the 6-week series.

"It was such a sublime practice - gentle, dreamy and left me feeling very peaceful. I am so grateful to have you as my teacher and guide.  

Thank you."

Monthly and Seasonal Offerings

Sacred Sound - Mantra & Kirtan  
Happy Om 6.30-
8 p.m
Friday 28th June

Sacred Sound - Mantra and Kirtan, Norwich

      - last Friday of the month 

The word Mantra is derived from two Sanskrit roots; manas ‘mind’ and tra meaning ‘tool’. Mantra can teach the mind to become increasingly absorbed in that which is most essential. The Upanishads tell us that mantras can lead us towards healing, inspiration, transformation & and self-realisation.

"Mantra is a conversation between the self and divinity. All too often we separate ourselves from the divine, forgetting our truest nature. Chanting the names of God/Goddesses guides us back to a space of remembrance, of faith, devotion and love."

Kirtan - devotional, melodic call and response chanting in Sanskrit. 

Calling upon the sacred sound to allow your body and mind to absorb them. Come and elevate yourself into a state of joy, unity and deep connection.

What to expect from this offering:

  • Vocal warm-up, Indian scale chanting

  • Devotional, melodic call-and-response chanting of mantras in Sanskrit (you will learn the mantra pronunciation and meaning)

  • Company of fellow human beings and deepening the connection to your self-essence

  • Satsang (sat means truth); therefore sitting in the company of the Truth, Q&A

Benefits of Singing + Chanting...why do we do it?
 Transformation of the Mind
- Remembrance of Divine; Remembrance of Self
- Purifies thoughts and alters habit patterns
- Calms the mind
- Upliftment of the Emotions
- Purifies our feelings - repeating a mantra with feeling internally short circuits the cascade of negative thoughts and emotions
bringing us back to the present moment

 Physical Benefits of Group Singing
- Regulated breathing - Kirtan as a form of Pranayama (by causing us to
breathe deeply as we sing) -- increases the flow of energy / Prana throughout
the whole system.
- Singing releases endorphins and oxytocin (lessens feelings of depression, loneliness, even physical pain)
- Brain is charged with positive energy
- Soothes, recharges, and strengthens the nervous system, creating relaxation,
releasing stress (lowers cortisol levels in the blood).
- Vagus nerve stimulation

- Social benefits
- Connection to others; strengthen feelings of togetherness, intimacy
- Vulnerability, sympathy


P.S: I know what some of you are thinking ‘’I can’t sing’’ or ‘’I am not good at singing’’. Please get over this false illusion as you may be missing out a lot. We all have a voice– let’s use it. You may start by listening and then humming eventually progressing – like any other practice

 

Booking is essential as spaces are limited. Open to absolutely everyone  / £ 12 

A discounted rate is available for this offering if you are unable to pay the full price, please just email me.

Reflect & Align practice was the annual end-of-the-year practice.  Most of us can agree if we want to move in a new direction or create lasting changes we need to reflect and align more than once a year! 

The Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice are significant events in the Earth’s annual journey around the sun. They mark key points in the changing of the seasons and provide an opportunity for reflection and alignment.

We gather to honour the changes happening within and around us. This is an invitation to deepen your connection and appreciation to nature -through making a mandala, our intentions, core values and use the support of cyclical nature for our evolution and soul purpose. 

Expect mandala making, mantra chanting, and simple movement to prepare you for a guided Summer Solstice Yoga Nidra to access a sense of renewal and unbounded awareness.

Allowing time for reflection, self-inquiry and connection to yourself and others.

Summer Solstice - Thursday  20th June 7-8.45 p.m - Fundraiser for Gaza  - 50% of the proceeds from this class will be going to non-profit organisation ANERA

Sublime Teachings of Tantra
- Awaken Universal Awareness

Happy Om Yoga Studio  9-11.30p.m
Sunday 1st September

 

mantra and yoga masterclass norwich and norfolk

Join me in this extended practice that blends the rich tapestry of Tantric Hatha Yoga,  Kriya Meditation, Mantra, and Yoga philosophy. This masterclass invites you to delve into Tantra's profound power and sublime teachings. 

This is a practice where intentional and centring asana, pranayama, and the resonant sound of the harmonium merge seamlessly with the reverberating pulse of the universe. We will close the practice with a meditation technique that guides you towards quietude and awareness of the central channel. Tapping into the healing and power of mantra and sacred silence to awaken infinite awareness.

With reverence and compassion, I create a safe and nurturing space for you to access your inner wisdom, find inspiration, and tap into your innate capacity for self-healing and transformation.

You will gain knowledge and experience of: 

  • Techniques that make you 'shine'

  • Increased self-awareness

  • Knowing how to integrate these teachings to evolve your spiritual practice and most importantly your daily life

But this practice is not just about knowing; it's about experiencing the 'unknown' and building trust -shraddha- in this process of Life.

Spaces are limited, and booking is essential. Secure your place for this experience at £27.

'I had a lovely gentle shift of transference of my ‘l’ to the mantra and, as it contains all phenomena, onto all my perceptions and experiences - the noise of the traffic outside, the shifting movements of the other people in the room, the gurgling water in the pipes. Fleetingly held before ordinary appearances assert themselves but a small moment of spaciousness of being.'

Ayurveda Workshop
-Inner & Outer Radiance
Skin and Natural Remedies

Saturday 20th July 9.30-12.30p.m
Women's Health
Saturday 17th August 3.30-6.30p.m

ayurveda norwich workshop

Ayurveda can show us how to live simply and beautifully, aligned with nature’s rhythm. These two summer workshops will be all about honouring that. 

Welcome yourself into a day of openness, wholesome nurturance and natural rejuvenation tips that will support your inner and outer radiance.

 

The main theme and education in July's workshop will be on Skin and Graceful Aging. The skin is our largest organ and Ayurveda asks us to be mindful about what we put on it. One of the main guidelines is "If you won't put it in your mouth, don't put it on your skin." I will share Ayurvedic tips on how to maintain healthy and glowing skin (note: it is mainly an inside job!), natural cleansers, moisturizers, and masks that you will have an opportunity to make and sample.

The August one will be about Women's Health - cycles, menstruation, perimenopause and menopause. Recognizing signs of imbalance and learning how to return to your most radiant self. 

​​

Cooling and hydrating drinks, ginger appetizers, a simple balanced bowl (vegetarian) to support your digestion and radiance will be served on the day. Allowing some quiet time to pause, reflect and simply be in a state of ‘being’ rather than constantly doing.

In this time together we will focus on PRACTICALITY. You will be able to apply some of the principles right away. All supported by handouts and opportunities for sharing, discussion and togetherness.

Limited availability to 6 women, as these two offerings will be held at my home space (Norwich), please email me to book or for any further enquiries.

The investment is £45.

Ivana’s approach to  Yoga and  Ayurveda workshops are inspiring. I find her teaching warm, clear and friendly. She holds the space in gentle, safe, boundaried, confident way and her genuine passion and love for what she teaches shines through and is infectious. She makes the space beautifully feminine and I was touched she decorated the space with flowers and blossoms from her own garden. Thank-you so much Ivana, I feel positive and energised. I’m drinking my ginger tea now and looking forward to the next retreat!
