WHAT TO EXPECT
MoreYoga Late Night Lock Ins are an alternative to a night out, an opportunity to spend your Friday evening 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.
CANDLELIT YIN YOGA
We will open the evening with a nurturing Yin Yoga practice inspired by the elements, combining breathwork, mindfulness and deep releasing postures to relax the body and quiet the mind, helping 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.

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.”
