MoreYoga Late Night Lock Ins are an alternative to a usual night out, an opportunity to spend your Friday or Saturday evening doing something that enriches rather than depletes your system. Every Lock In is inspired by the MoreYoga ethos that we need to look after our health holistically ~ Mind, Body & Spirit and each event will combine Yoga, a Workshop focused on mental well-being and Meditation. This series is part of our Karma Commitment to giving back with a minimum of 15% of proceeds going to our Charity of the Year Help Refugees UK.

Late Night Lock In
Igniting New Intentions
MoreYoga Stoke Newington
Join us on Friday 17th January for our 1st Late Night Lock In of 2020! This is the perfect time to set your intentions for the new year ahead & put self-care at the top of your priorities. We invite you to stay in with us and create the space for reflection, personal growth and letting go of the things that no longer serve you as we move positively into the new decade with clear intentions for what you’d like to manifest.
What to expect: We will open the evening with a Chakra Yoga Flow & Guided Meditation to activate the seven energy centres in the subtle body before moving into a therapeutic workshop based mindful wellbeing. We will end our evening with a healing immersive sound journey. This workshop is suitable for everyone & all levels are welcome, if you have any questions please e-mail email@example.com.
Please bring warm layers, a notebook & pen and any snacks you would like for the evening. Good Karma is also included in each ticket purchase as 25% of all profits will go to Choose Love, a new movement in charity that provides emergency aid and long term solutions where they are most needed.
CHAKRA YOGA with Liz Joy Oakley (@lizjoyoakley)
Liz Joy Oakley is a Yoga and Meditation teacher specialising in Yoga therapy for Stress and Anxiety. Liz will open the evening with an energising Chakra Yoga Flow to activate the seven energy centres in the subtle body. Imbalances or blockages in the Chakras can manifest physically, mentally or emotionally and in this class we will begin to release any blocked energy or imbalances to stimulate an internal shift to leave you feeling rebalanced before moving into a guided mediation through the Chakra system to connect to the elements associated with each energetic centre.
PSYCHOLOGY WORKSHOP with Dr Stephanie Minchin (@theyogapsychologist)
As the year opens into a new decade, we invite you to announce 2020 with clarity and new beginnings. Raising your awareness to manifest more of what serves you, aligned with your inner core values and innate wisdom.
This workshop provides space for you to consider the year ahead and plant seeds for more growth. Steph will guide you through discussion and an individual written mind-mapping exercise supporting silent self-reflexivity and contemplation, to align your intentions with you and your year ahead.
GONG BATH with Rachel Welford of Welford Wellbeing (@welfordwellbeing)
January is a great time for setting intentions and creating a clean slate from which to begin again. Rachael will guide you through a gentle sound meditation which will help you tune into your intuition, further enhancing clarity around your intentions for 2020.
The gong is a great teacher, gong sounds have been shown to help shift the brains focus from left to right hemisphere increasing activity which governs intuition and creativity. This allows the listener to produce Theta brain waves which are associated with heightened consciousness, enhanced visions, creativity and spiritual insight.
The sound of the gong has the effect of lowering your brainwave frequency. Causing the brain to slow down and entrain or “tune into” the gong sounds which can help people to have clear visions of their future. As we move through the gong bath and allow the sounds to wash through us and over us, we can also intend the sound to wash us of any energetic blocks or stuck feelings so we can move forward into 2020 with ease and grace.

Meet the yoga studio crew who really do give more!
Stepping into a yoga studio on a Saturday night isn’t my usual vibe… Yet swapping dance floors and beats for candles and stretching for the launch of More Yoga’s Late Night Lock Ins was a wonderful experience.
The studio was a cosey haven, with candles and blankets and a gift bag for each yogi. Liz greeted us all with smiles and hugs, her shiney spirit sharing a sense of happiness and fun. Liz led us through a beautiful yoga flow, gentle movements and breath work, ending with restorative poses to nurture the body.
Many of us are used to practicing yoga with music and have a range of yogi-friendly playlists to match the pace of the movements; but listening to live acoustic music whilst flowing on the mat really was something else. Mike’s acoustic guitar was the perfect compliment to the yoga, and Liz and Mike were nicely synced in sound and time with the yoga movements! The dreamy atmosphere created a sense of a community for the workshop, that we were all their together to celebrate ourselves.”
