Workshops

We host a regular programme of yoga workshops and events from our Sheffield based studio in Kelham Island.

We are so pleased to welcome Stephen back to the studio after his travels!

 

If you didn’t make his last workshops in the studio here are some thoughts from the participants – “Excellent workshop, so informative and so upbeat and accessible. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I will without a doubt look out for any future workshops with Stephen”.

 

These yoga workshops are for students and teachers who are dedicated to improving their technique and expanding their education. Each session builds on the previous one, so at the end of the weekend, you will have worked and learned about every part of the body, including your mind. If you really want to deepen your understanding of your body and your self, come for the whole weekend.

 

Adventure Yoga is all about exploring and expanding the possibilities within yourself and in your life. Stephen’s goal is to give you the knowledge and tools to make your own informed choices – both in your yoga practice and in your life. If you want to learn more about yourself, if you want change, If you’re willing to work hard and ask the hard questions, Adventure Yoga can help.
