New Gentle Yoga Class for Thursday Mornings

This Thursday morning class offers a gentle approach to the practice of Hatha yoga, incorporating beginners breathing techniques, physical postures and poses with self-awareness, relaxation and meditation. Practicing in the beautiful village of Bonsall, Derbyshire this 60 minute morning class is a wonderful place to practice with a friendly atmosphere, followed by a cup of tea. More information is available here.

Introducing Eat Breathe Live

Eat Breathe Live was created by Mike McMaster Yoga and James from Street Food Lab after recognising the necessity in this age for experiences that go beyond the everyday, normal, bog-standard retreats and events. We intend to deliver transformational retreats, with a touch of luxury, by combining our passions for food, ancient traditions of yoga and modern exercise practices, all in the great outdoors while also honouring the roots of where it all began and spending nights under the ancestral skies.

Tuesday Night Yoga Fully Booked

My Tuesday night class at FlowMotion.Life is now fully booked until June 22nd where we will hopefully be able to host a slightly larger group. In the meantime, if you would like to go on the reserve list for May, should anyone not be able to attend, or if you would like to inquire for June on-wards you can email me at mike@mcmaster.yoga.

Spring 2021 Yoga News

It’s hard to believe that we are almost into the 5th month of 2021 and thus far this year the only yoga classes we’ve been able to attend have been online. Gladly though, it’s looking like classes are moving back into the parks in the sunshine and back inside from May onwards. I will be taking classes back inside from Tuesday 18 May at Flowmotion.Life in Matlock at the regular time of 19.45 to 21.15. I will be taking block bookings for the first 5 weeks (May 18 to June 15) at £45 until restrictions (hopefully) lift and we can increase numbers safely in the studio.

I will also be leading classes outdoors when the weather is fine at Hall Leys Park in Matlock, Saturday mornings 10 am which will be free to attend but limited to 6 people including myself so that I may join you for the practice.

One of my favourite things of the last few years of teaching is the Satsang (community) that has developed outdoors and in. I really look forward to being able to share yoga with all of you again soon.

Please get in touch if you would like any further information or to book a class. Mike@mcmaster.yoga
