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.

PSYCHOLOGY WORKSHOP with Dr Stephanie Minchin (@theyogapsychologist)
As the year draws to a close and we near the winter solstice, we acknowledge that the longest hours of darkness are preparing us for the powerful energy of renewal and regeneration. This invites us to reflect on the year that has passed and celebrate our journey, planting seeds for more growth. Steph will guide you through discussion and an individual written mind-mapping exercise to support silent self-reflexivity and contemplation, in celebration of you and your year.
Reiki Activated Gong Bath with Welford Wellbeing
Let’s face it meditation can be difficult, especially when party season and end of year deadlines are looming. The pressures of present buying, family time and work (not to mention all the work parties!) can make us feel like we’re pulled in all different directions. Together we’ll release the pressure and spend 45 minutes in celebration of stillness and all that is you.
We all want a little more peace and love on earth, especially at this festive time, but getting the mind to behave can be a bit tricky. Using sound vibration and frequency Rachael will help you bring a festive silence to your mind. As you bathe in the deep vibrations of the gong, tibetan bowls and koshi bells, all the cells in the body begin to resonate activating the bodies relaxation response. This slowing your heart rate and helps entrain the brain to theta brain wave frequencies, often known as the bliss state. May the sounds we create, carry you off to a dream like state of healing and hallelujahs and warm your heart the whole year long!
**Please note that during the sessions there maybe placement of vibrating objects near or on the body of which some emit very high or very low pitched sounds. It is not recommended to attend a gong bath if you suffer with the following conditions. This list is not exhaustive and if there is any reason to believe you may experience pain, injury, or discomfort you should check with a medical professional before attending.
Not recommended for::
- First and Last Trimester of pregnancy
- Heart condition or pacemaker
- PTSD which is triggered by unexpected sounds
- Anyone with tinnitus or those who may struggle with being immersed in sounds.
- Anyone who may find it hard to sit or lay flat for up to an hour
If you have reason to believe these objects and the sounds they emit could cause pain, injury, discomfort please let me know before the session or check with your GP before attending.

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.”
