Finding the Space between Hope & Acceptance
Join Faye in this 2 hour workshop of practices to stimulate the energy centres of the body that cultivate an ability to find a sweet spot between Hope & Acceptance & enable the body to better move towards Raja Kapotasana (King Pigeon Pose).
Continually swamped with bad news we drop into the mind and suddenly the reservoir of hope in the heart is lost again.
By turning away from the media and tuning into our true nature we recognise ourselves as part of nature herself, in yoga known as Prakriti. When a deeper understanding of this is cultivated a greater acceptance of the cycles of life (the ebb and flow) is to be found.
There is a place that lies directly between the acceptance of our current reality and the hope of what will be. It’s not an easy place to find, acceptance can feel like giving up unless we layer it with Hope. Hope is already in the heart it is our true essence, all we have to do is reconnect with it and so we do this with mindful awareness through our practice.

What our students say
Anonymous 9I love the space that you have created. It's brilliant to have access to the bolsters, blankets and blocks. The space always feels clean and inviting. Please keep the space minimalist. It's a nice haven away from the frantic outside world! All of the teachers create a really supportive environment where you feel confident to try new things or rest if your practise isn't quite at that level yet. I like to feel challenged physically and see progression week-to-week. I always enjoy the relaxation at the end of the class.
Anonymous 8I love that it is a safe, supportive environment with excellent teaching. The space is always set out beautifully and it feels very relaxing. I like the fact there are plenty of props available to use to help with poses. The classes are extremely well planned and it is clear that much thought goes into each session. I love that individual growth is encouraged and different abilities are supported.
Anonymous 7The space has a calm, lovely vibe and it's fantastic that it is dedicated to yoga. I really appreciate the invitations offered by Samantha to stretch my boundaries and my practice is developing.
Anonymous 6Lovely dedicated well equipped calm ... bliss. I had never experienced restorative yoga before: incredible!
Anonymous 5Its a very welcoming space, it's easily accessible and has a lovely feel. I feel held and safe to be myself in the space. I love the variety of classes and particularly value learning yoga as a 'whole'...the philosophy, pranayama, meditation, chanting etc, as well as the asana practice. I also value the commitment and kindness of the teachers. Just to say thank you for all being you. I love Same Star Yoga and will continue to support in any way I can.
