The Acorn, Brimham Rocks Road, Hartwith, Harrogate, HG3 3HB
At the Acorn we offer a variety of yoga classes such as vinyasa, kundalini, hatha, gentle and restorative. There is something for everyone and all abilities are catered for. Our teachers have many years experience in their field and can assist in giving you tools to navigate your way through life’s challenges.
Yoga teaches us that we are all unique and alongside the physical benefits, our mental and emotional well being are supported and enhanced. Indeed, what we learn on the mat can be taken into everyday life. Yoga enriches whatever and wherever it touches. There is no segregation in yoga, we are all one.
There is no competition on the mat, we are each on our own journey. This is an important aspect, it teaches us Ahimsa – kindness and love towards ourselves, in thought and word and deed.
Julie is our fantastic yoga teacher. Teaching a range of classes including Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini yoga. She also specialises in gong baths and yoga nidra which are so therapeutic and soothing. ‘I didn’t find yoga, yoga found me. After losing my son in 2002 my life was scattered. My mind was a runaway train, I had no control over my thoughts and at times I couldn’t see the woods for the trees. I began as a yoga student in 2003/2004. With posture, breath and meditation I soon found the most valuable tool I could ever have imagined. My life changed completely after that. I found focus and a healthy way forward. I started to see my life as a journey and this excited me.’Jules holds healing day retreats, shamanic retreats and one to one shamanic journeying.
