Knowledge Hero Workshop: Mindfulness and Meditation

Yoga is so, so much more than just the physical practice. Our Knowledge Hero Workshops are a chance to learn about the philosophy of the practice; going beyond moving the body and much more in to the ways of life.

The philosophy of yoga can help us understand and appreciate so many aspects of life, who we are as a person and why we feel the way we do. Learning about the philosophy is so eye-opening and empowering, and can teach us so, so much. Many people study the philosophy of yoga for years, even decades, as the learnings you’ll take from reading one day will be completely different to the following day, following month, or following year, depending on what’s going on in your life at the time.


This workshop will cover, in detail, Mindfulness and Meditation.

Both mindfulness and meditation are talked about so much in the world of wellbeing, which is absolutely great, but what are they? What is mindfulness? What is meditation? Are they the same? Are they different?

Join this workshop to understand both practices, to undertake techniques from both practices, to see how they overlap and intertwine, and to learn the benefits behind each practice.

We’ll also include some light information about the nervous system; the fight, flight or freeze response, and the rest and digest response, and how we can refresh the nervous system through Mindfulness and Meditation practices.


Workshop Content:

* Starting with a grounding meditation to get in the learning zone

* Dive in to a short but effective Vinyasa Flow yoga session to loosen the body ready for immersing in the practices

About Holly

Holly Mcfee is the owner of Yoga Hero Ltd. Holly has been practicing yoga for seven years, and teaching for five years. Holly embarked upon her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training here in Leeds, and after balancing a full time job and teaching yoga for just six months, went full time in to teaching.

In August 2015 Holly opened the Yoga Hero studio in Leeds Dock, and in June 2017 this studio expanded to become one of the largest dedicated yoga spaces in the North of England.

Holly, along with Angela Jervis-Read, leads Yoga Hero’s 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training Course. Her interest in anatomy borders on the ridiculous, and she is really passionate about yoga instructors having at least a basic understanding of how bodies move, and how joints work, to ensure a safe environment for yoga students.  These workshops provide a safe space to recap on the basics and deepen anatomical knowledge, to make your yoga teaching, and your yoga practice incredibly effective, as well as safe and enjoyable.


About Yoga Hero

Yoga Hero has been established since March 2013. Initially, classes were ‘popping up’ in church halls, arts galleries, cafes, skateparks… you name it! Over time, we eventually found a beautiful home in Leeds Dock.

Yoga Hero has three studios, one with a capacity of up to 80, one with a capacity of 20, and the third is perfect for small private groups or one to one sessions. At Yoga Hero, we offer everything from Introduction to Yoga Courses, Pay As You Feel Classes, up to 200 hour Foundation Teacher Training Qualifications and Further Training, such as Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and much more!


About Leeds Dock

Yoga Hero is based in a beautiful part of Leeds called Leeds Dock. Leeds Dock is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station, or there’s a free water taxi servicebetween the train station and the Dock!

Around Leeds Dock are many affordable hotels, such as:
* Holiday Inn Express (Two minutes’ walk)
* Jury’s Inn (Five minutes’ walk)
* Ibis (Five minutes’ walk)
* Malmaison (Ten minutes’ walk)

There are also many very reasonably priced AirBnBs on the Dock

Leeds is a quite small city with loads going on. The whole city is walkable by foot, probably 40 minutes’ walk from one end to the other at a steady pace. There’s many independent restaurants and cafes, with our favourite North Star Coffee Shopjust two doors down from the studio, serving incredible coffee and food during the day.

If you have any questions about Leeds; what to do, where to stay, or how to get here, just ask the team: 07743513225.
