Yoga - Spinal Release Class With Gillian Evans



The spinal release practice combines breath work with deep relaxation in a slow and careful sequence of supine postures designed to release tension in the whole body. The practice brings relief to aching backs, shoulders and neck and restores the nervous system to a state of equilibrium, creating the conditions for the natural healing potential of the body to unfold. There is nothing like the state of peace and calm that arises from the spinal release practice and the cumulation of this class on a weekly basis is transformational for everyone but especially those students who suffer from chronic physical or emotional tension and/or insomnia.

Gillian has been practising yoga for over thirty years. She is passionate about the transformational potential of yoga and leads yoga classes and workshops in London and Manchester.
Inspired and trained at Triyoga by Anna Ashby and Joey Miles in the alignment-based method of hatha yoga, Gillian guides students through 90-minute classes that conquer fatigue, cultivate strength, vitality, and good posture, improve mood and increase body and mind awareness.

Gillian is also an Urban Anthropologist. She lectures in Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester, and is preoccupied, like all anthropologists, with the question of what it means to be human. Gillian lends this question to her enquiry into the yoga tradition, and brings a unique anthropological perspective to her teaching practice, summer and winter yoga retreats and to workshops for fellow yoga teachers. She is a member of the teaching faculty of the Advanced Teacher Training programme led by Anna Ashby at Triyoga.


This is a six week course of classes taking place on Friday Evenings from 7-8.30pm.(90 minutes)

We kindly ask students to sign up and pay in advance for the six weeks directly with Gillian. This encourages commitment and creates certainty for the yoga teacher. 

Please book directly through Gillian's website, Not on Nor's website
