Pranayama/Meditation Hour

“Meditation makes use of what we already have: breath, emotions, thoughts, our body.”

Studio Ananda – Emma will hold the sacred space in this studio for 60 minutes.  Pranayama, short guided meditation, sometimes gong, and a period of silence.

Pranayama means breath. Prana is our breath, our life force, our energy. We improve our quality of life when we improve our quality (and relationship) to our breath.

Do not be afraid of meditation. We have what we need within us, and we work with what we have. The mind can be a bitch, (monkey mind) but you are not your thoughts. Let’s break the meditation myth, yes those shopping and do-to lists will burst into play, on a loop of repeat, this happens and this is normal.

With practice and self-compassion, you will come to make friends with meditation. It will give you space to listen to yourself.

All welcome. If you are pregnant and coming to a Studio Ananda session,  please let Emma know and she will not play the gong.

To enquire – Emma:

“In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.

Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.”

Mahatma Gandhi.

Sat Nam – a bij (seed) Kundalini mantra

What does Sat Nam truly mean for us?

It is the eternal flame of truth within you.

“I bow to the essence of the Divine within me.

I honour and ignite that Eternal Truth Flame at the core of my being so that I can connect and join with all humanity

and share my precious inner wisdom, my mission, my soul purpose, with others.

I am the light of my soul.”

Sat Nam

What do they say about Yogaspace Yorkshire?

The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!


I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.

Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.

Emma & Beth

Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.


I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!


To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it


I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.
My advice? Book it now!


I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.


From the first moment of entering the beautiful hall, I knew this studio is something special. A light spacious yet so cozy and calm yoga space is hard to find. Relaxation comes naturally and yoga is so much more enjoyable in these beautiful surroundings. Emma is am amazing kundalini yoga teacher and divine when playing the gong. Her classes are challenging yet respect individual circumstances and make you feel so much better instantly. She is very knowledgeable, connects theory and practice with ease, is full of energy and positive spirit and a joy to be taught by. I truly love my kundalini yoga and gong sessions with Emma


Emma’s Kundalini classes are ‘first-class, a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Emma is fabulous teacher and really opens you to a new way of being while you show yourself self-love and care’
