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 Ins
MoreYoga Late Night Lock Ins are an alternative to a night out, an opportunity to spend your Friday evening in with us doing something that enriches your Mind, Body & Spirit. As part of the MoreMind project, every Lock In is inspired by our ethos that invites you to approach your health holistically by combining Yoga, Psychology and Sound Healing.
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.
Please bring warm layers, a notebook, pen and any snacks you would like for the evening.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We will open the evening with a Yoga practise, combining breathwork, mindfulness and movement to help relax the body and quiet the mind before moving into a short Guided Meditation to help us ground into the space for the evening. This practice is suitable for everyone & all levels are welcome.
Integrating yoga philosophy and models of western psychology, you will be guided through discussion and an individual written mind-mapping exercise supporting silent self-reflexivity and contemplation.
SOUND HEALING GONG BATH
Using sound vibration, we’ll help bring blissed-out silence to your mind, relaxation to your body and a connection to your soul. The deep vibrations resonate all the cells in the body activating your relaxation response, slowing your heart rate and entraining the brain to Theta, the bliss state.

Friday April 24th, 7.30-10pm
The beauty of practice to honour progress and relinquish the search for perfection. How can we become more aligned with what we think, feel, and do through our yoga practice both on and off the mat.
Friday May 22nd, 7.30-10pm
In light of the theme of MoreDevotion, we will explore how to connect to a deeper commitment or dedication of our inner purpose; how to direct our energy towards the meaningful aspects of our life, towards a sense of greater wellbeing.
Friday June 12th, 7.30-10pm
With the summer month of the ‘sun standing still’, this Lock In connects us to our inner light and nature within; all things that encourage us to shine brightly and direct us towards our true purpose, our most inspired self.
Friday July 3rd, 7.30-10pm
This month we will be focusing on joy, and how we can actively invite gratitude into all aspects of our lives. We can cultivate joy within the lessons which may have been the most challenging to learn, into small everyday tasks and within ourselves by living more mindfully and with more intention.

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.”
