Sundays are usually spent with friends, families having a gathering over brunch or roast, or getting over that hangover. But this Sunday in particular, I booked myself for a day of yoga mindfulness.
Yoga Evolved festivals combine a full day of yoga, inspirational talks, art and vegan food with a strong emphasis on having fun and building a community of like-minded yogis.
Jamie Rylett founder of Yoga Evolved, has made up a small community of humble yoga teachers, students of all levels are welcome. He promotes yoga students/teachers to
come as you are with open mind no judgements allowed.
There are different types of yoga sessions introduced in Yoga Evolved;-
Power Yoga- The flow could be fast and intense with poses designed to build core and upper body strength, this would be which would ideally be set as one of the first class to energize and get the blood flow going.
Vinyasa – when the movement is paired with your breath, going at your own pace.
If you want to push yourself a little more, give Inversions or the Back bend workshop a go, all levels are still welcome – teachers can give you advise as to what positions can help you with getting to that level of holding an inversion pose, everyone is so helpful to give you that boost of getting to your goal. It is rewarding when you achieve what you thought was impossible, is possible.
Yoga Evolved not only does monthly festivals but also holds other workshops, individual classes during the week and if you happen to also be starting out as a yoga teacher Jamie is happy help!
Doors open from 10am, there are 4-5 physical yoga classes and also talks or workshops running simultaneously should you not want to do all the physical yoga sessions. Tickets for the day are just £30. The next monthly Yoga Evolved Festival is Sunday April 28th. Click on the links to keep up with updates on their latest events.
