Dancing Warriors: Inspiring People
For physical, emotional and mental wellbeing

Hatha Yoga

People have been practising yoga, in one form or another, for over 4,000 years. One of the earliest texts on yoga, the Yoga Sutras written by Patanjali around 2,000 years ago, describes yoga as stilling the vortex of the mind: (Yogas chitta vritta nirodha: Yoga Sutras 1.2). In the 15 th century the Hatha Yoga Pradipika details a practice which we would largely recognise today, working with the breath, mind and body to achieve a state of liberation and bliss.

Benefits of yoga practice

Working holistically with the breath, mind and body, yoga can lead to positive behavioural and lifestyle changes; over 80% of people who have a regular practice describe themselves as enjoying good health and being more resilient to stress. A regular yoga practice increases our capacity for self-awareness and self-care, so we are better able to make informed choices, improving our overall health and well-being.

Classes for all abilities

Based in our beautiful studio in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Dancing Warriors offers a range of gently challenging classes which are suitable for absolute beginners as well as students with more experience. Always starting with the breath to anchor us into this present moment, the practice draws on slowflow hatha yoga, yin yoga, yoga nidra, relaxation and mindfulness meditation; inviting you to take the time to invest in yourself, and come dancing home to your inner warrior.

Your investment is £12 to drop in, £35 for a block of 4 consecutive classes, or £40 for 4 classes taken over a 5-week period.

Grace and Grit

A deep and contemplative yin yoga practice, anchored into a slow, balanced breath, where postures are held in stillness for a longer period of time, allowing us to release and come within; accepting change from the inside out, from the deep connective tissue, to the emotions, to the mind.

Yoga Classes

“Blissful and rewarding is how I would sum up the yoga experience with Dancing Warriors! It’s my moment of calm in an otherwise busy schedule. Just being is the perfect antidote to being busy, and Gail is immensely successful at easing anyone out of the stresses of everyday life and into a place where they can be calm and thought free.”

Yoga Classes

“Gail is possibly one of the best Yin yoga teachers I’ve ever had the pleasure of practicing with. To anyone wanting to take the first steps into learning yoga, or experienced yogis wanting to try something different, I would greatly recommend her.”

Charlie

Yoga Classes

“I have been attending classes with Gail at Dancing Warriors for a year and a half, and I could not recommend her enough. Every practice has been so peaceful and beautiful. Her Slow Silent Workshops are also fab and worth a try. Gail has great knowledge of the human body and knows exactly how to help you do yoga with any body pains or aches that you may have. Would rate 100/10 if I could!”

“LOVE my yoga with the wonderful Gail Stephens! It’s by far the best way I’ve found to release tension in and energy from the body. I leave feeling a different person after each visit and really look forward to the next one. Just fab!”
