Arm Balance Workshop –
@ Complete Health Borders, Galashiels.
11am – 2pm
Arm balances are challenging. Not only physically, but mentally.
They are also a lot of fun and can add a “twist” to any Asana practice.
This session will be very enjoyable and we will learn in a very relaxing environment. No pressure!!! We are all learning together. 😉
We will be focusing on core and arm strength, hip openinig asanas and trying out many different arm balances.
This sessions will be 3 hours long, so we can give time to rest our upper body and stretch our hips.
” I really enjoyed the workshop. Everyone was very supportive and your instruction helped me get into positions I didn’t think I was able to do! I found the strength work we did first the hardest but I loved the inversions and the side arm balances. I found the whole session flowed really well and I can’t believe how quickly 2 hours went by. I was buzzing by the end and really pleased with what I’d achieved – thanks Pollyana 😁. Since getting home I’ve done two handstands and my 11yo has pretty much mastered crow (how do kids get things so quickly?!) I’m really looking forwards to the next one 😁”
£25 for 3 hours session.
Spaces limited, booking essential.
Note: you don’t need to be able to do arm balances to join the workshop.

10am – 4pm
Join Yoga Frog and Suzy Nairn for what will probably be the last Day Retreat at ‘Yoga Frog Sanctuary’.
A day of Yoga infused with sound and healing.
Hidden in the Yarrow Valley, the Yoga Frog Sanctuary is the perfect space for you to reconnect with nature and your true nature, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
We will start with a Yoga session, suitable to all levels, preparing and opening up the body and mind to receive sound.
After our delicious lunch we will have a little free time to wonder in the beautiful forest surroundings before coming back inside to explore the healing properties of sound with Suzy.
In the second part of the day we will enjoy an afternoon of Sound Healing with vocal chakra toning and a deeply relaxing Sound Journey. Led by Suzy Nairn of Soundsphere and the ANSU School of Sound, Suzy will share the classic vocal tones used to balance our chakras, an excellent exercise to take home with you and add to your daily practice. Then we will rest on mats with blankets and cushions while we are bathed in the nurturing sounds of the Tibetan singing bowls, gentle gong, chimes and drum to bring inner peace, gain insight and support your inner journey.
If you not experienced this before, I promise it is the most delicious experience!! You will love it.

James Boag Weekend Immersion – Bob Marley & the Bhagavad Gītā.
@ The Haining, Selkirk.
11th – 13th May, 2018.
Bob Marley and the Bhagavad Gītā
Practical teachings from the heart of the yoga tradition through the lens of some of the timeless lyrics of Bob Marley.
James will bring timeless practical teachings from the heart of the yoga tradition into vivid life working with the spiritual poetry of Bob Marley, one of his favourite music artists.
As a spiritually engaged artist, many of Bob Marley’s lyrics are infused with a timeless quality. This weekend, we will use some of Bob Marley’s poetry as a lens into the timeless, practical teachings of the heart of yoga.
It does not matter if you are a fan or not of Bob Marley, whether this is your first contact with practical, whole life yoga, or if you have been working with yogic principles for decades; this weekend, we can refresh and deepen our understanding of yogic principles that can help us cultivate harmony and fulfilment in all aspects of life.
Our explorations will include
– claiming sovereignty for our own experience
– cultivating unity in the broad spectrum of our lives
– how yoga teachings can help us free ourselves from the limiting bonds of our habits and conditionings
– how can we live life as a celebration that gathers towards greater unity and harmony
– how we can work with diverse yoga techniques and make them our own so they can really help us sing our own unique song and become the integrated individual we really can be.
