The embodiment of a little + often = a lot, the Yoga Stretch program guides you through 15 minutes of yoga.  These short and sweet yoga classes will allow you to easily incorporate yoga into your daily routine and the classes are designed so that after four days, you will have completed a full body yoga sequence.  Each class closes with a quote to inspire you for the rest of your day.

The Sunday Sanctuary | Your weekly haven of peace and tranquility

 

Every Sunday, for the next few months, I will be sharing a video on the Ailsa Burns YouTube channel at 8am (UK time).  For half an hour, each week, I will be creating and holding space for you to relax, unwind and rest.  I will be sharing yoga classes and Yoga Nidra as well as inspirational and thoughtful videos that explore yoga, well-being, and the bigger questions about life.  My hope is that this space adds ritual and rhythm to your week and helps you to greet yourself with kindness, compassion, and gentleness.  The Sunday Sanctuary is your weekly haven of peace and tranquility in a turbulent world.​ ​

Journey to Presence | Three one-hour Gentle Yoga Flow classes each week

 

Over the course of three weeks, you are invited to cultivate a ritual of silence and stillness with three one-hour Gentle Yoga Flow classes to practise per week.  Each one-hour Gentle Yoga Flow class guides you through a calming and relaxing sequence to enhance your awareness of the breath and to offer you a sense of grounding in the present moment.  The heart of the philosophical teachings of yoga are the abundance of tools that this powerful discipline can offer to help you to enjoy the simplicity of the present moment, rather than ruminating on the past or worrying about the future.  This is your time to take the journey to a more present state of being.

The Chakra Series | 30 minutes of Gentle Yoga exploring the seven major Chakras

 

The seven major Chakras, or energy centres, in the body correspond to different parts of the body, different parts of our emotional life and different parts of our spiritual life.  The Chakra Series guides you through seven Gentle Yoga Flow sequences that you can practise at your own pace.  Each class explores a different Chakra and the entire series of yoga classes promises to leave you feeling balanced, aligned and awakened.

Explore the Elements | Five one-hour Elemental Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes 

 

Explore and discover the balancing and harmonising effects of elemental yoga with five Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes each lasting one hour.  There are five elements in yoga philosophy; earth, water, fire, air and ether (space), and each element corresponds a different part of the body, Chakra and symbolic concept in our lives.  The elements are a lovely way to remind ourselves of our connection to nature and aligning your yoga practice with the elements allows you to be more reflective about yourself and your life in a comprehensive way.  You can learn more about Elemental Yoga here.

Homecoming | A 3-week program for returning to your yoga practice

 

A common conversation that I have with students is that after an enthusiastic start, they often fall out of the habit of doing yoga regularly.  Therefore, I thought I would share a yoga program that is designed to guide you back to your yoga practice.  This 15 day program takes place over the course of 3 weeks with each yoga class lasting up to 30 minutes.  Nurture self-acceptance and return to your yoga practice in a gentle, kind and compassionate way.

30 Days of Yoga challenge | Reflect, reset and begin again with intention

 

30 days of yoga to help you reflect, reset, express gratitude, explore your yoga practice, let go and cultivate an intentional way of living that is personal to you and reflects your values.  You can follow the calendar over the course of a month or at your own pace and there are two exclusive videos included that are not available to view on YouTube.
