Morning Yoga: Release and Strengthen with Ruby Reed, Advaya co-founder
I am delighted to work with 42 ACRES and teach a deep and strong Yoga class every Wednesday morning to awaken well and set ourselves up for the day ahead.
Using movement and breath to explore and unlock channels in the body, we will open and release areas of physical and energetic tension to allow ourselves to move, breath and think with freedom, flexibility and ease. Once energy flows well we are better equipped to develop strength and resilience, maintain focus and find compassion for ourselves in daily life.
Over the weeks we will work with different practices from the Yogic tradition, starting from the physical to enter a deeply meditative and balanced state while exploring new possibilities within the mind and body.
Date: Every Wednesday morning from w/c 10th September 2018
Time: Arrive from 7.45am for a prompt 8am start (1 hour session). Please don't arrive after this time so as not to disrupt the session.
Place: 42 ACRES Shoreditch, 66 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4LW
Tickets: Free for 42 ACRES members // £10 for external spots
Questions: WhatsApp 07557193119 if you have any questions

Ruby is an activist and yoga teacher interested in embodiment, breathwork and nature connection as sources of healing and empowerment. She has been practicing Yoga for the last 10 years, which has been a transformative process in widening her levels of awareness. She began her practice within the Ashtanga tradition, studying with Ursula Scott in London and at KPJAYI in Mysore, but has been increasingly drawn to a therapeutic application of the practice to balance and harmonise the body and mind along the principles of Ayurveda, in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and his son Desikachar.
Her passion for the oceans and connection to the natural world inspired her to co-create Advaya Initiative towards the end of 2015, an environmental and holistic wellbeing platform sharing a story that empowers young people to take action for healthier, more environmentally aware and globally considerate lives. Ruby has travelled extensively around the world living with diverse communities and coming to understand different ways of perceiving who we are and the Earth we are part of.
She has an MA in Countercultural Art in Latin America and the Eastern bloc from the death of Stalin in 1956 to the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 and an MA from Edinburgh University in Spanish and Art History with a focus on ideal beauty and the body in the early Renaissance.
